Another poll shows Marco Rubio sitting pretty with a double digit lead over Charlie Crist. As for the rumors that Meek might drop out and endorse Crist and turn this into a real race? Left-wing blogger Markos Moulitsas, who had been pushing for Meek to do just that, now says that Democrats "are actively boosting" Meek's "pretty much a hopeless candidacy" because Meek will help boost African-American turnout, and thereby help Democrats win the critical Florida's governor's race. Moulitsas's new line is a sign that Democrats don't think they have much of a shot of winning even if Meek endorsed Crist.
Another sign that Crist's chances look hopeless? The big announcement he teased last night is that he's secured the endorsement of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
