Election 2012: Mitt Romney early overwhelming favorite in Florida

in Statewide by

From Public Policy Polling: Mitt Romney is the early favorite for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination among the party’s voters in Colorado and Florida. Romney also led recent polls in New Mexico and Texas, and was second behind Mike Huckabee in both Georgia and North Carolina. Sarah Palin has not had the lead in any of the six states we’ve polled over the last month. Florida’s the first really important stop on the GOP calendar that we’ve looked at, and…

More thoughts on PPP poll: The biggest threat to Democrats is not angry voters but apathy within party base

in Statewide by

More thoughts on the Public Policy Poll: Our polling is continuing to indicate that the biggest threat to Democrats this year is not angry voters going over to the Republicans, but apathy within the party base. The Florida Senate race is a good example of this. We find that only 8% of people who voted for Barack Obama in Florida are planning to cross over and support Marco Rubio this year. That is actually smaller than the 11% of John…

Charlie Crist MUST run as an Independent

in Peter/Statewide by

Charlie Crist has denied that he has any intention of leaving the GOP, though today’s poll from Public Policy Polling demonstrate he just cannot win the Republican primary. It’s time for Charlie Crist to suck it up and face facts. Or he will become a political laughingstock destined for a lifetime of boat-drinks at the St. Pete Yacht Club (not a bad life, but not what Crist wants). After polls two weeks ago showed him down by 16 and 18…

Poll numbers: Charlie Crist is a dead man walking

in Statewide by

Of course, it is a robopoll. And 41% of the respondents think the Republicans in Congress are too liberal. From Public Policy Polling: Support for Charlie Crist from conservative voters has pretty much evaporated, and that’s allowed Marco Rubio to build a 32-point lead in the Republican primary for Senate. Rubio now leads Crist 60-28, including a staggering 71-17 lead with conservatives. Crist has a 49-36 advantage with party moderates, but they account for just 31% of likely primary voters…

Here’s a little preview: among Republican primary voters 19% would like to see him as Governor a year from now, 14% want him in the Senate, and 56% want him out of elected office. If there is any path to his winning office in Florida again- and there may not be- it’s as something other than a Republican. Developing…
