Don’t forget, Charlie Crist’s poll numbers have declined with D’s & I’s almost as bad as his support with the GOP

in Peter/Statewide by

Public Policy Polling reminds us that, while it’s his fall with Republicans that gets all the attention, but Charlie Crist’s poll numbers have declined almost as badly with Democrats and independents over the last year as they have within his own party. And that makes me doubt he would be successful in an independent Senate bid even if he did decide to make a run for it. Comparing Quinnipiac’s April 2009 poll to its poll this month Crist’s approval rating…

American Spectator: ‘It can’t be much fun being Charlie Crist just now’

in Statewide by

It can’t be much fun being Charlie Crist just now. He’s having to watch his 18-year political career dissolve. And there doesn’t seem to be a thing he can do about it. Timing is everything, or at least the most important thing, in so many areas of life. And Charlie’s political timing has been terrible. At least over the last three years. Thanks to some moderate and liberal stances Florida’s governor has taken since 2007, and some ham-handed attempts to…

Even the Super Bowl has gone partisan

in Apolitical by

In a time of increasing political polarization, even the Super Bowl is dividing Americans along party lines. A new Public Policy Polling national survey finds that 32% of voters in the country are rooting for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, compared to 22% who prefer the Indianapolis Colts. Democrats strongly prefer the Saints, by a 36-21 margin. But Republicans are narrowly going for the Colts, 26-25. Independents lean toward the Saints as well, 33-20. Perhaps the most interesting thing…

Did Kendrick Meek get a fair shake from the latest Quinnipiac Poll?

in Peter/Statewide by

Lord knows I’ve spent the last couple of weeks dogging Kendrick Meek’s campaign for what I believe is a lackluster effort to gather the requisite number of voter signatures needed to qualify for the ballot. But I criticize out of love. Tough love, but love nevertheless. It’s for that same reason why I need to defend Meek’s position in the latest Quinnipiac Poll, which, because it showed Marco Rubio ahead of Charlie Crist for the first time, is being cited…

Thank you, Chris Dodd

in Uncategorized by

Sen. Chris Dodd’s sacrifice for his party appears to have paid off, big-time. There’s lots of meat in three new Quinnipiac polls for Democrats and the Obama administration to consider. In a nutshell, the polls show Chris Dodd did Democrats a huge favor by bowing out of the Connecticut Senate race, which now appears to be completely out of reach for Republicans, and they show that while voters like Barack Obama much more than they did George W. Bush (who…
