The St. Pete Times has a poll pouring water on Florida Gov. Crist's veep appeal:
A new St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 statewide poll shows that despite his bipartisan popularity, Crist would provide only modest help in pulling Florida Democrats over to the GOP column in November.
Three percent said Crist as a running mate would make them "much more likely" to vote for McCain, 6 percent said "somewhat more likely" and 87 percent said it would have no effect.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
