From Marc Caputo at the St. Pete Times:

For the first time, a new poll shows that Gov. Charlie Crist is losing to former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio in Florida's nationally watched Republican U.S. Senate race.

Rubio leads by just 3 percentage points -- 47-44 -- and is well within the error margin of the Quinnipiac University poll. Yet the trend of Rubio's rise and Crist's fall is stark. In October, Crist led 50 – 35 percent. In August, Crist's lead was even bigger (55 – 26) and in June the race looked like Crist would blow out Rubio by 54 – 23 percent.
