The latest Rasmussen Reports robo poll (4.5% MoE): The Florida Senate race appears to be a whole new ballgame with Republican Governor Charlie Crist’s decision to run as an independent.

...The majority (57%) of conservative voters in the state support Rubio, while the majority of liberals (56%) and moderates (55%) like Crist.
Just 31% of all voters in the state think Republicans and Democrats are so much alike that a new political party is needed. Fifty-five percent (55%) disagree. Sixty-two percent (62%) of voters in the state currently approve of how Crist is handling the role of governor, up six points from early April, while 38% disapprove.
Crist is viewed very favorably by 25% of Florida voters and very unfavorably by 16%.
