Crist Maintains Lead in Florida

A new Quinnipiac poll in Florida shows Gov. Charlie Crist (I) continuing to lead the U.S. Senate race with 39%, followed by Marco Rubio (D) at 32% and Rep. Kendrick Meek (D) at 16%.

With Jeff Greene (D) as the Democratic nominee, its Crist at 40%, Rubio at 32% and Greene at 15%.

Said pollster Peter Brown: "Crist is getting more support from Democrats than either Greene or Meek. The key for Crist will be whether he can hold this many Democrats once the party's nomination is settled and keep his half of the independent voters. Crist's edge in the Senate race is built on the very favorable impression Floridians have of his performance as Governor. They approve 56 - 35 percent of how he is leading the state, an impressive figure at a time when voters in many states seem to be taking out their economic frustrations on their governors."
