@MarcoRubio moves ahead of @CharlieCristFL in new Mason-Dixon poll

in Uncategorized by

Statewide, the poll showed Rubio with 38 percent, Crist with 33 percent and Meek with 19 percent support, with the rest undecided. But if Greene beats Meek for the Democratic nomination on Aug. 24, Mason Dixon rated the race a toss-up — 39 percent for Crist, 38 for Rubio and 12 percent for Greene.

“I think Charlie Crist ultimately is going to finish third, and you can take that prediction to the bank,” said state Sen. John Thrasher, R-Jacksonville, chairman of the Florida Republican Party. “This poll is a reflection of people starting to focus on the elections and, when they start to focus, Charlie’s numbers go down.”
