Katherine Harris' Campaign Collapsing

Last Friday Rasmussen came out with a poll in the Florida Senate race showing Katherine Harris trailing Bill Nelson by 30-points (57-27). Yesterday, Quinnipiac came out with a new poll showing the same thing: Harris trails Nelson 56-27. In the QPoll, Harris' support among Republicans has sunk to only 57% and her unfavorable rating jumped to 37% from 27% recorded in the last poll two months ago.

The Florida Republican party has exactly three weeks left to recruit someone else to get into this race and try to make it competitive again. That job is made harder if Harris continues to insist she's going to stick around for a nasty and expensive primary fight. If the GOP can't find a viable candidate to meet the May 12 filing deadline, this race is hasta la vista.
