Crist Says 'Internal Polling' Shows McCain Leading in Florida
Would a journalist please ask Charlie Crist to release the internal polling showing John McCain winning Florida?
“I’m hearing some very encouraging numbers, you know, some polls reporting [McCain] three or four points up already in the Sunshine State,” the governor said.
McCain may win Florida. Earlier this year, I thought Florida would stay red. That doesn't mean I am going to take the word of a McCain supporter. I don't expect Obama campaign manager David Plouffe to say anything, but Obama is winning. The media should call McCain and Obama supporters when they say they have "internal polling" that favors their candidate. If they can not provide the polling data then voters can rightfully question the truthfulness of these surrogates. I'm tired of the media not taking campaign surrogates to task and printing their quotes as the gospel truth.
Real Clear Politics shows John McCain dropping in the Florida polls. The latest Zogby poll has Barack Obama leading 47.2 percent to 46.9 percent. The margin of error makes the Zogby poll a toss up. The latest Fox News/Rasmussen poll Obama at 51 percent.
Governor Crist, put up or shut up.
