Crist Up, Brown Down in New Poll

Florida voters hold steady on Charlie, not so much for Corrine

A new poll has mostly confirmed what we already knew: Floridians mostly like Charlie Crist. What we didn't know is that they also mostly can't stand verbally-challenged Gator fan Corrinne Brown.

According to the poll, done by Mason-Dixon, Crist holds a 51-23 margin over primary opponent Marco Rubio in the 2010 Florida Senate race. Crist also leads Democratic U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek by 48-26. Nothing new there.

The most astonishing part of the poll concerns Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a dedicated wordsmith and sports junkie.

Just four percent of voters polled held a favorable opinion of her, and with a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points, that could shrink to zero.

If Brown can muster any votes against Meek in the primary, she should be "gratulated" for her "gustly" performance.
