538.com downgrades Dem chances in Florida

in Statewide by

The ultra smart folks at fivethirtyeight.com have downgraded the possibility of Democrats picking up the open Senate seat in 2010. Their analysis:

“Marco Rubio, who has shown no inclination to exit stage right for Charlie Crist, has started to rack up some endorsements like those of Mike Huckabee and Jeb Bush Jr. Even if Rubio were to upset Crist in the Republican primary, however, he’d still stand a decent-enough chance in the general election, as the field of Democratic candidates started out fairly weak and is getting weaker. Democrats might do better to concentrate their resources on the gubernatorial race instead, where popular state CFO Alex Sink is running and could help deliver Florida to them in 2012.”
