Maybe there is some exhaustion of the "I hate Rick Scott" meme.

Or maybe Florida is a blue state. With Hillary on ticket, open senate seat in 16 will be competitive, too.

I still don't think Scott is dead in the water, even against Crist.

I think this will be one of the most negative campaigns ever. Not that theres ever much merit to saying that, but just noting it. Scott knows he can't dig himself out of the hole, he was always unpopular since the first day he took office. He can, however, pop Crists bubble.

At least Scott's numbers are improving...

This is definitely a winnable race for Scott, even against Crist. Though I agree with Maxwell that this will essentially be a race to the bottom. Personally, if I were in the Scott campaign, I would encourage Scott to start attacking Crist early and often, in the hopes of possibly getting Crist out in the primary (which is entirely possible, assuming a majority of Florida Democrats have actual principles and aren't willing to throw themselves at any candidate just to win).

The Democratic party has proven itself incapable of such principle.

Does the Florida Democratic Party even have any other credible candidate not name Charlie Crist?

The Florida Democratic Party is one of the worst state parties.

Christ has the power to smite all of his enemies.  He doesn't need to run in order to throw Scott out of office.

No, it is not. It is Toss-Up/Lean R or Center-Right.

How do you know Rubio is running for president? Is he retiring? Or are you just being mistaken here?

Yes, but she'd be the worst pick out of the whole bunch. Quinnipiac and PPP polling shows her losing to Rick Scott by 6 points and although she's the only declared candidate so far, if Crist, Sink, or Meek runs, she'll get buried in the primary.

I also agree with this. While Scott has a hard climb ahead of him, I know for a fact that he will get the most competent young strategists in the state on board his campaign. Not to mention the money factor, which he has a good edge in.

Eh, they're not that bad, are they?  After all, they got their senator reelected by a pretty convincing margin last year and kept the state for Obama.

In other words, if you are running in Florida with a (D) next to your name, you're on your own.

Scott barely won in a wave election, and he has done little to strengthen his support. He has connections to corrupt activities. All that the Democratic opponent needs do is to expose Scott's sleazy practices in business and the Democrat wins.

That Senator is also the only person, apart from Alex Sink once in 2006, to win a statewide election in Florida as a Democrat in almost the last 16 years. Obama stuff was pretty much Obama/OFA's doing, not the FDP (which is currently going through another round of infighting).

Crist is basically our only viable candidate who hasn't declined already.

in the hopes of possibly getting Crist out in the primary (which is entirely possible, assuming a majority of Florida Democrats have actual principles and aren't willing to throw themselves at any candidate just to win).

Keep in mind that Dyer, Sink, and Smith have all declined.

If Crist steps in, its Lean D. But that's the key thing we have to know. Right now we can't really judge the race and can only say that its a toss-up.
