Poll: Crist-Rubio dead heat



Rasmussen robo poll: The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds Rubio earning 35% support and Crist capturing 33% of the vote. Prospective Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek remains a distant third at 20%. However, for Meek, that reflects a five-point gain from  earlier in the month.  

With Meek as the Democratic nominee, three percent (3%) say they’d vote for "some other candidate," and eight percent (4%) remain undecided.

If real estate billionaire Jeff Greene wins the Democratic nomination, the numbers are Crist 36%, Rubio 34% and Greene 19%. In that match-up, three percent (3%) still stick with "some other candidate," and nine percent (9%) are undecided. Democrats will choose their nominee in an August 24 primary.
