In terms of survey data, it would represent the most damaging blow Kendrick Meek could suffer: what if a poll showed that more of Florida’s decided Democratic voters prefer independent Charlie Crist over presumptive Democratic nominee Kendrick Meek?
Simply put, it would be the poll heard ’round the state.
And it may be coming out tomorrow.
Public Policy Polling (PPP) is offering a glimpse into a poll it will release Tuesday, which reveals a little bit of who is backing independent Gov. Charlie Crist in the U.S. Senate race.
“One thing we asked on the poll was whether people thought Charlie Crist should caucus with the Democrats or Republicans if he was elected. Forty-three percent of respondents said he should go with the Democrats and 37 percent with the Republicans,” noted PPP.
“Perhaps more interesting was what those planning to vote for Crist had to say. Within that group, 55 percent said he should caucus with the Democrats to only 22 percent who expressed the opinion that he should join forces with the Republicans.”
