Poll: Crist as indie gets 22%, vs Rubio 45%, Meek 25%



Rasmussen Reports latest robo poll tested Charlie Crist running for Senate as an independent:

The first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of a potential three-candidate Senate race finds Rubio earning 42% support from likely voters in the state. Democrat Kendrick Meek picks up 25%, and Crist runs third with 22%. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.

Rubio gets 53% of the male vote, while female voters are more evenly divided among the three candidates.

Sixty-six percent (66%) of Republicans favor Rubio in a three-way contest, while 20% of GOP voters prefer Crist. But Crist also earns 21% Democratic support. A solid plurality (47%) of voters not affiliated with either party favor Rubio.
