I 've always wondered if Grayson could win the Governorship, especially against an incumbent as weak as Scott.

Not a chance- Grayson I believe is from the Orlando area but he is everything we in "real Florida" despise about South Florida- loud, obnoxious, liberal New York transplants... if Alex Sink couldn't beat Rick Scott, I don't think he can be beat. Sink was a perfect candidate to rack up better margins in my neck of the woods and further west...

Scott will probably recover a bit, and I think he'd win this race. This would be a perfect race for Crist to enter as an Independent, where I think he'd have a serious chance.

I hear polls show him with good favorable ratings but I just can't see it... everyone I speak with and I personally see Crist as an opportunist who speaks in platitudes only

if Alex Sink couldn't beat Rick Scott, I don't think he can be beat.

But when he ran against Sink, he wasn't a deeply unpopular incumbent. PPP showed Sink up by about 15 in a rematch.

Probably Scott as Florida's fairly red at the local level.

Grayson is one of the few Democrats he'd beat, though.

Fairly red at a local level? Maybe in the Panhandle/North FL counties, but Democrats just took the mayorships of Tampa (Bob Buckhorn) and even Jacksonville (Alvin Brown), adding to Orlando (Buddy Dyer) and Fort Lauderdale (Jack Seiler). Statewide, Democrats lead 41-36% in registered voters and Obama won a majority of FL voters. Democrats are well-off locally, just not at a state level (FL Senate/House w/ Republican supermajorities, Scott/Putnam/Bondi/Atwater) or a federal level (19R-6D House delegation, Rubio).

Rick Scott or Alan Grayson...I don't know if that's Hobson's choice or Sophie's choice.

The ballot should come with instructions on how to get the hell out of Florida as fast as possible.

Yeah I meant local as non-Presidential.

You want the ballot to just have a sticker on it that says "I-75"?

I think that when it comes to election time Rick Scott will have a decently compelling jobs record. Of course, that means nothing when your reputation is a bad as his is, but still it might be enough against a hack like Grayson. In a rematch against Sink though, he'd need a lot of luck and quite a bit of that fortune of his.

Scott will probably recover a bit, and I think he'd win this race. This would be a perfect race for Crist to enter as an Independent, where I think he'd have a serious chance.
I hear polls show him with good favorable ratings but I just can't see it... everyone I speak with and I personally see Crist as an opportunist who speaks in platitudes only

You know, I was just thinking the same thing. Democrats I know tolerate him because they are desperate and I know a few old republicans who forget that he isn't governor anymore but I'm not sure where his popularity numbers come from.

Democrats and Independents (esp. in North/Central FL) like him, most of the people in Tampa Bay like him, the entire teacher's union absolutely loves him, and he's quite popular among the African-American community.

I don't think I can comment without going into a rant that will probably get me banned.
