Blogger Explores an Alternate Universe on Behalf of Charlie Crist
Charlie Crist apologist Joy Reid is spinning herself silly trying to downsize Marco Rubio's lead in the U.S. Senate race.
After criticizing last week's Sunshine State News Poll that showed Rubio holding a 43-29 margin over Crist, one would think the Reid Report might detect a pattern with the release of this week's Reuters/Ipsos poll, which has Rubio with a 40-26 advantage, and a new Rasmussen survey pegging Rubio's lead at 41-30.
But instead of gaining wisdom, the liberal blogger just pecked away at each poll, futilely looking for methodological shortcomings while grasping at straws for Crist.
Lurching into her hypothetical universe, she pondered the prospect of a Senate contest without also-ran Democrat Kendrick Meek and noted that the race would then be essentially tied -- Rubio 46, Crist 45. Whoo-hoo!
If only Meek would just quit, Ms. Reid's dream of a Crist victory (or at least a closer contest) would come true. Alas, reality remains her worst nightmare.
