Crist. Or Davis. The race remains too close to call.
October 28, 2006

Republican Charlie Crist may be trouncing Jim Davis in money and sheer number of TV commercials, but a new St. Petersburg Times poll shows Davis remains solidly in the game as Election Day looms.

The poll found Attorney General Crist leading Democratic U.S. Rep. Davis by six percentage points, 48 percent to 42 percent, with 10 percent of voters still undecided. Independent voters stand to tip the election Nov. 7, with one in five still unsure between the two.

I would not put my hand in my pockets and place a heavy bet on either one of these candidates. I think its too close to call, said pollster Rob Schroth. I think on Election Day, its going to be close.

The Oct. 22-25 statewide telephone survey of 800 voters was conducted for the St. Petersburg Times by Schroth/Eldon & Associates, which usually works with Democrats, and the Polling Co., which typically works with Republicans. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

3. For me, it's about what SOS Katherine Harris did to Democrats in
2000. If the GOP in FL were to lose several races to Dems this time, including her own Senate race, that would be a just outcome.

4. I heard the RGA pulled its $$$ out of Maine to concentrate on FL
Our Dem Governor here seems to be doing okay but Florida is too close to call for the GOP. They needed the resources there.

5. They also Need a G.O.P. Gov To Throw the Next Election..
If a Dem is in power..they won't have the chance to steal it.

6. Especially since OH looks to be going blue
Jennifer Brunner is posed to become the next Sex State there. She's a great Democrat. And if, like it looks, Blackwell is defeated for Governor there's no GOP gang to throw the next few elections there. Oh I'm crying for the Elephant-heads.
