Florida Governor's Race Watch

There are new polls out in the Florida Governor's race.

Republicans: Charlie Crist is leading Tom Gallagher 55 to 22.

Democrats: Jim Davis is leading Rod Smith 47 to 19.

I like Jim Davis but the Republican race is the one to watch. Gallagher has positioned himself as the true conservative and has eagerly hopped into bed with the religious right wing of the party. Although Crist also plays the "I'm a real conservative card" in reality he's moderate.

The battle for the soul of the Republican party continues and the trend seems to be away from the theocrat nutjobs. That's a good thing.

Complete poll analysis found here.
