Crist Would "Absolutely" Have Left The GOP If He Were 20 Pts. Up In The Primary

This is one of his biggest blunders yet -- Crist claiming that he would've "absolutely" switched parties, even if he was the one with the 20 point lead instead of Marco Rubio. Just before the campaign, Crist previously said that he would remain a Republican until a poll told him he shouldn’t:

This comes just after Crist criticized longtime adviser -- and his Senate seat caretaker - George LeMieux, who is now expected to run against Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in 2012. LeMieux should throw his hat into the ring this time around just to tick Crist off.
