A CNN Opinion Research poll released Wednesday night shows a tight race for the U.S. Senate in Florida between Marco Rubio and Charlie Crist. And though Democrat Kendrick Meek is still mired in third place, his 24% rating of support is the highest that he's received all year long since it became a three way race.
Rubio leads with 36%, Crist is at 34%, and Meek is 10% down, at 24%. It's just one survey but definitely shows that some Democrats are "coming home," to Meek. Also not to be discounted is the lousy media coverage that Charlie Crist received last week, after he was blasted for an usual number of contradictions (even for the Governor) that may have created an erosion of Democratic support, at least temporarily.
Not surprisingly, the poll says that Meek's greatest strength is in his home area of Miami, while Crist is excelling his in his home Tampa Bay region, while the conservative Rubio does best upstate.
