According to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll of likely Florida voters, the November outcome for the Florida Senate may rely on which Democrat candidate wins the primary. The results below show that Marco Rubio will be successful in winning the Florida Senate race if Kendrick Meek wins the Democratic primary, and Charlie Crist will be successful in winning the Florida Senate race if Jeff Greene wins the Democratic Primary.
|Marco Rubio (R) ||38%|
|Kendrick Meek (D) ||21%|
|Charlie Crist (I) ||33%|
|Some Other Candidate ||1%|
|Not Sure ||7%|
|Marco Rubio (R) ||36%|
|Jeff Greene (D) ||20%|
|Charlie Crist (I) ||37%|
|Some Other Candidate ||2%|
|Not Sure ||5%|
In both matchups, Rubio gets 66% of the Republican vote, and Crist draws 25% support from his old party. If Meek is in the race, he earns 48% support in his own party, while Crist picks up 36% of the Democratic vote. If Greene is the nominee, Democrats break even between Greene and Crist. Among voters not affiliated with either party, Crist has the edge only if Greene is in the race
