Editor’s Note – A very astute analysis by Kenric Ward. I believe he is spot on when he raises the question of Crist’s true intentions;
‘In the meantime, questions are percolating about Crist’s true intentions..’
With the governor sitting on a reported $5.5 million and reserving an estimated $3 million in TV ad buys while running a bare-bones campaign operation, some critics suspect he may be cashing out.
Under U.S. election law, Crist would be entitled to use any leftover funds for personal use or a future run for federal office.
And suggesting that Democrats need Meek, who is black, to remain a viable candidate to draw African-Americans to the polls for gubernatorial hopeful Alex Sink is a very accurate look at the big picture – better known as Obama’s re-election hopes in 2012.
Interesting that the party that claims to be so diverse seems to view everything through the lense of color.
Poll: Marco Rubio Widens Lead in Senate Race
Poll shows Meek falling further behind; is Crist saving to fight another day?

Sunshine State News
Republican Marco Rubio is sailing toward the U.S. Senate, as Democrat Kendrick Meek and independent Charlie Crist are dead in the water, a new Sunshine State News Poll reports.
Rubio has added 2 percentage points to the double-digit lead he had on Labor Day, now garnering 45 percent of likely voters. Crist, with 29 percent, has not budged. Meek, at 22 percent, lost a percentage point. Five percent of respondents remain undecided.
The statewide survey of 1,151 voters was conducted Oct. 6-10.
“Although Rubio’s 43/40 ratio in positive/negative name ID isn’t great, it’s still better than his opponents,” said Jim Lee, president of Voter Survey Service, which conducted the poll for Sunshine State News.
“In comparison, Crist remains disliked among Republicans by a 64/25 margin, and even among independents has basically the same image as Rubio (41/39 positive).” The governor bolted the GOP in April after badly trailing Rubio for the nomination and pursued his Senate bid as a No Party Affiliation candidate.
Lee said, “Meek is simply not viable, given his 68 percent negative among Republicans and his 52 percent negative with independents.” Based on these numbers, the four-term congressman from Miami has a “50-50 chance of finishing third in this race,” Lee projected.
