Crist, whose campaign seemed in jeopardy before he switched parties in May, has jumped ahead of former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio, a Republican, and both of the Democrats battling in a primary on Aug. 24.

Regardless of whether billionaire Jeff Greene or Congressman Kendrick Meek wins the primary, neither gets even 17 percent of the vote in a three-way contest with Crist and Rubio, according to results from The Florida Poll.

So, if the Republican Party is going to align itself with far-right tea party candidates such as Rubio, and they don’t fare well, we can expect to see the tea party go the way of the Whigs, only much faster and with much less success.
