Two separate polls this morning confirm that Gov. Charlie Crist (R-FL) has a huge lead over his right-wing challenger in the 2010 primary for Senate, former state House Speaker Marco Rubio.
From Quinnipiac: Crist 55%, Rubio 26%.
And Rasmussen: Crist 53%, Rubio 31%.
Rubio has hoped to capitalize on Crist’s support for the stimulus, in order to mobilize conservatives against the moderate governor. So far, it doesn’t seem to be working, with Crist backed by the full party establishment and remaining way ahead in surveys.
