A Three-Way Race in Florida Would Be Close

If Gov. Charlie Crist runs for Senate as an independent, a new poll says the contest would be close.


Crist denies that he's thinking of dropping his GOP affiliation, but he trails Marco Rubio badly (by 20+ percentage points) in the Republican primary. And Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson reports that, according to Quinnipiac, the race would be a virtual dead heat if it included Rubio on the Republican ticket, Crist as an independent, and Rep. Kendrick Meek (who would trail by six to eight points) as the Democrat:

Crist       32
Rubio       30
Meek        24
