McCain takes lead in Florida polling

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 1:21 pm

In more endorsement news, Florida governor Charlie Crist appears to have pushed McCain over the edge in that state.

From the Reuters article:

McCain gained 3 points overnight after winning the Florida governor’s backing on Saturday. The shift broke a tie at 30 percent and pushed McCain, an Arizona senator, into a 33 percent to 30 percent lead on Romney before Tuesday’s primary.

The margin of error in the poll is 3.4 percentage points.

The backing of Crist particularly helped McCain with conservatives. He wiped out a 6-point lead for Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, among voters who describe themselves as conservatives.


  1. Well, I hope it’s true for the good of all humanity. Not so McCain can win, but so Romney will be held back. I like McCain. I believe him when he speaks. It’s what he says sometimes that worries me. Especially on the war. I want our kids home 5 years ago.

  2. McCain’s appointment of Juan Hernandez as his Director of Hispanic Outreach has shown John for the lair he is. How can he say that he ‘get’s it” about the border and illegal immigration when he has a man on his staff that is on recorded as saying:

    “I work with the community in the United States, the Mexican community because I don‘t want them essentially going native on us. We want them continually tied emotionally, linguistically, politically to Mexico, because then they‘ll continue to send money home.”


    “I want the third generation, the seventh generation, I want them all to think ‘Mexico first.’”


    “We must not only have a free flow of goods and services, but also start working for a free flow of people.”

    A man who said to Congressman Tancredo: “Congressman, it‘s not two countries; it‘s just a region.”

    So much for John’s promises. Why would anyone elect a man who won’t stand up for the sovereignty of this nation. I guess John will go back to call those of us that want secure borders ‘Chicken Shit’, racist, bigots, zenophobes, yeah that should win him a lot of votes.
