in Statewide by

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that every vote Kendrick Meek loses goes directly to Charlie Crist.

How else to explain the results of a new poll released by the Florida Chamber of Commerce?

The poll shows Gov. Charlie Crist with a 42-31-14 lead over Republican Marco Rubio and likely presumptive Democratic nominee Kendrick Meek.

The survey of 607 likely Florida voters was conducted June 9-13 by the Florida Chamber of Commerce Political Institute and Cherry Communications. It has a 4 percent margin of error. The Chamber also did not release full cross-tabs or the wording of all questions.
