Rubio Solidifies His Lead in Florida

Marco Rubio seems to be pulling ahead in the Florida Senate race, according to a new Mason-Dixon poll:

Rubio is favored by 40 percent of likely voters, up from 38 percent last month; Crist's support has dwindled to 28 percent from 33 percent, according to the Mason-Dixon Research & Associates survey of 625 likely Florida voters. The margin of error: plus/minus four percentage points.

The poll found that Meek is gaining on Crist, with his support rising sharply to 23 percent of likely voters, up from 18 percent. Nine percent are undecided.

As the election draws closer, it appears as though Crist's support is sliding away to the Republican and Democratic candidates.

This poll seems to go along with the findings of other polls, most of which suggest that Rubio is pulling ahead. It remains to be seen if this trend will continue until election day. Rubio could be in trouble if all of Crist's supporters go to Meek (an unlikely result), so he's not out of the woods yet. Still, so far the numbers are looking better and better for Rubio.
