Update: PPP: Rubio has 32 point primary lead over Crist; Our Charlie Crist numbers tomorrow will be ‘absolutely brutal’
Update: WOW! PPP wasn’t kidding, Sorry Charlie! Expect him to run as an Indy or Dem, I have long suspected he and O had a ‘gentlemans’ agreement that he not push for a revote in the Dem primaries for FL..frakkers…
…Rubio now leads Crist 60-28, including a staggering 71-17 lead with conservatives. Crist has a 49-36 advantage with party moderates, but they account for just 31% of likely primary voters compared to 65% who describe themselves as conservative….
From the PPP blog. I would add emphasis, but the whole thing could be in bold:
We are going to have absolutely brutal numbers out on Charlie Crist tomorrow.
Here’s a little preview: among Republican primary voters 19% would like to see him as Governor a year from now, 14% want him in the Senate, and 56% want him out of elected office.
If there is any path to his winning office in Florida again- and there may not be- it’s as something other than a Republican.
Marco on the health care bills in the House and Senate:
Marco Rubio at The Corner:
(…) How many bipartisan, Massachusetts-like pushbacks is it going to take for President Obama to understand the American people want to reform health care without changing and abandoning all the things that have made our system great?
How many town halls, tea parties and elections will it take for the American people to finally convey to Washington that we need to scrap this flawed proposal and process, and start anew on step-by-step reforms?
I join the American people in opposing this proposal on policy grounds as well as the procedural approach being considered to ram it through.
If President Obama and congressional Democrats go down the road of reconciliation, they will leave no doubt in the American people’s minds that Washington is broken and 2008’s promise of “Change” was little more than a campaign slogan that should not have been believed in the first place.
The health-care proposal is a deeply flawed plan that should be scrapped entirely in favor of a truly bipartisan approach that pursues step-by-step reforms….
MiM- Marco Rubio is the first conservative we have given money to as recovering Dems. Yeah he is that good, he makes me want to be fiscally responsible, ooooh! Marco-Marco-Marco- GOP needs to get that calendar together cough, cough..
