Quinnipiac Poll Shows Charlie Crist Winning in Florida…

…if he runs as an independent.

From Quinnipiac:

Marco Rubio has opened up an elephant-sized 56 – 33 percent lead over Gov. Charlie Crist in Florida’s U.S. Senate Republican primary, but in a three-way general election with Rubio on the GOP line, Crist as an independent and Democratic U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, Crist has a razor- thin edge, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

If Crist were to file as an independent for the general election, he would get 32 percent of the vote, compared to Rubio’s 30 percent and Meek’s 24 percent.

Charlie Crist has repeatedly said he’s in the GOP primary to stay, and his campaign put out this statement last Friday to reiterate just that:

“To put these rumors to rest once and for all, as we have said countless times before, Governor Crist is running for the United States Senate as a Republican. He will not run as an Independent or as a No Party Affiliation.”

Ah yes, but Crist is a politician. Politicians make all sorts of firm commitments and promises that they eventually break.

We’ll see what happens…
