All three pollsters agree that Rep. Kendrick Meek now has at least a ten-point lead over Billionaire Jeff Greene. But in the race for the Republican nom for governor there is less agreement–the pollsters are all over the map with their numbers.

Chris Cillizza must have been the first one with his hand up in the Washington Post editorial meeting to volunteer to write the “Democrats in disarray” piece, about the Cordoba House project. He must have dialed with glee into all the campaigns and heard all the anguished responses.

Just over a week from the August 24 Florida primary, two polls show the Democratic Senate primary and the dynamics of the overall Senate race in very different shape. Mason-Dixon has Rep. Kendrick Meek with a huge lead over his billionaire opponent Jeff Greene, while Ipsos still has Greene with a modest lead.

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, running for Senate as an independent, holds a narrow lead in a three-way race. How he’ll fare depends partly on which Democrat will be his opponent. An Aug, 24 primary will decide that.
