PBA poll: Crist 53%, Rubio 29%



Looks like Charlie Crist's buddies at the PBA areeager to knock down the growing Buzz that the governor looks increasingly vulnerable against Marco Rubio. The police union today released partial results from a private Oct. 12-13 poll it commissioned from McLaughlin & Associates. The survey of 500 likely Republican voters: Crist 52.8%;  Rubio: 29.4; Undecided: 17.8%.

“This poll shows that the Gov. Crist beats his challenger handily, and the Governor also has an extremely high approval rating,” said David Murrell, Executive Director of the Florida PBA. He said the poll shows Crist with a 67.4 percent approval rating.

“It appears that Republican voters are quite satisfied with Governor Crist’s management of the affairs of Florida and approve of his campaign for the U.S. Senate,” continued Murrell. “His numbers would be the envy of any candidate.”
