    the poll has radically different results in the Rubio vs. Meek matchup (44-29) than did either of the preceding polls (from PPP and R2K) that had Meek within 5 points or 1 point respectively.

    Suggesting not a surge but rather perhaps M-D has a different model here that favors Crist more vs. Rubio and then either Republican more vs. Meek.  Note also that this poll showed poor numbers for Obama personally and for attitudes toward the HCR bill.

      markedly different, indicating, to me, a change in WHO was polled, more than a wholesale change in voter's attitude.

      •  Meek Has Qualified By Petition (0+ / 0-)

        Kendrick Meek is the ONLY candidate EVER who has qualified by petition for the Senate race.

        The recent polls do NOT take into account the lack of name recognition that Mr. Meek has, a lack of recognition that has been fostered by the failure of so-called "Democratic" media support as in Kos.

        For those who seem to prefer a glitzy faux "Dem." leaning candidate like Crist instead of a hard working REAL Dem. like Meek, all I have to say is be careful what you wish for.

        Any Republican elected will "toe the line" of the party of NO.
