Charlie Crist Is In Trouble

Marco Rubio has a two-to-one lead over Gov. Charlie Crist in the Florida Republican primary for the Senate.

The numbers: Rubio 60%, Crist 26%. This is nearly identical to yesterday’s survey from Public Policy Polling (D), which put Rubio ahead by 60%-28%. The TPM Poll Average puts Rubio ahead by 56.2%-28.9%.

InsiderAdvantage CEO Matt Towery told the Florida Times-Union: “I can tell you that I’m in shock because I was convinced that other pollsters were using some sort of system to strain for ultra-Republicans or something that was skewing the polls to the conservative side.”

Yeowch.
