New poll shows Sink and Scott in dead heat, Rubio in the lead

by Dara Kam | September 29th, 2010

A new CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corp. poll shows Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, a Democrat, and GOP opponent Rick Scott tied in the race for governor.

The survey shows Scott with the backing of 47 percent of likely voters and Sink with 45. The poll had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.

The poll also showed Sink with a one percent edge among all voters, a drop of seven points from early this month.

Scott held a 13-point advantage with independents likely to vote, with 50 percent said they were likely to cast a ballot for the former health care executive compared to 37 percent who said they’d vote for Sink.

In the three-way U.S. Senate race, the poll found Republican Marco Rubio in the lead with the support of 42 percent of likely voters, independent candidate Gov. Charlie Crist with 31 percent and U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, a Democrat, with 23 percent.

  4. 21st Century Says:

    Give em hell Alex!

  5. Moderate Democrat Says:

    Rasmussen poll today has it: Rubio 41 Crist 30 Meek 21.

    Meek is toast.

    Only one viable option or Rubio is next Senator.

  6. Genie Says:

    To be sure, Alex Sink will actually SINK the state of Florida.

    Alex Sink will adhere to what the democrats are advocating: more restrictions, more regulations, more CAP and TAX (horrid, it would double your energy bill,cost jobs). She WILL be the Nancy Pelosi of Florida.

    And more importantly if she wins Sink will control the redistricting in Florida. That would be Too costly for South Florida and a wait of a decade (census 2020) to undo what Sink would do!

    Do let our country or our state contribute to the decline of our nation.

    NO to Alex SINK

    YES to Scott

    YES to Rubio

    Stop the spending (Alex lost the pension fund, which she was in charge of, $61 Billion!!)

    Stop the taxing (Alex will raise taxes)

  7. nemo Says:

    The PBP is full of crap when they say that Sink is in a dead heat with Scott. Scott has a sizeable lead, and will maintain it until he wins election. Don’t be mislead by the liberal PBP. It’s a lying member of the democratic party.

  8. RICHARD Says:

    Sink sucks but might win
    Rubio will win since Wexler made a deal & thinks he is getting a job out of it

    VOTE NONE OF THE ABOVE!

  9. Bruce Carlton Jordan Says:

    I don’t want my lover Charlie to win anymore! Back in the good ole days he had time for me and I lived that! Now he’s just flying around on some bigshots free jets and changing his opinion every day about one thing or another! Charlie I love you and I want us back like we use to be! Please call me over here in Sumter county this is the hell hole of Florida and you know it!

  10. Sink Crist and McCollum have lost billions of our dollars Says:

    UPDATE: GOP officials appear to be linking Attorney General Bill McCollum to billions of dollars in losses – to the state pension fund during the 2008 financial meltdown.

    McCollum has steadfastly refused to join other GOP elected officials in their support for Rick Scott, who defeated the attorney general in the August GOP governor’s race primary.

    The Republican Party of Florida paid for a series of ads attacking Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, the Democrat nominee for governor, for her role in the pension fund losses.

    “Under current oversight, the fund has lost billions upon billions – and now Alex Sink is actually running ads on her questionable record overseeing SBA,” RPOF spokesman Dan Conston said in an e-mail in response to a reaction to McCollum’s pointed questioning yesterday to refute recent reports that the State Board of Administration made risky investments that endangered the pension fund.

  11. independent Says:

    Sink in a centrist, but the GOP has moved so far to the fringe right that they are labeling her a liberal. What a joke. I don’t understand how anyone in good conscience could vote for a criminal like Scott.

  12. TITO Says:

    I DON’T TRUST THOSE POLLS,THE FEELING IS NOT TO VOTE FOR PEOPLE OF NOT CLEAR REPUTATION LIKE SCOTT,THE DOUBT IS THERE CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS GUY WITH ALL THE POWER OF A GOVERNOR AND ALL HIS FRIENDS TRYING TO GET SOMETHING FROM HIM OR TRYING TO SELL THEIR GOODS TO FLORIDA,YOU CAN SEE THE GOV IS GETTING CORRUPT AT EVERY STEP AND LEVEL,LOCAL,COUNTY AND STATE IF THIS GUY BRING HIS BUSINESS PRACTICES.

  13. Zagare Says:

    My wife has worked with Alex Sink, and has known her for over 30 years, and she is giving Sink her endorsement….and since my wife is the one of the smartest people I’ve ever known, I’m going to take her at her word, and vote for Sink for the good of the great State of Florida, and to hell with my conservative tendencies this time around.

  14. Florida Boy Says:

    Purely amazing. We get to choose between a banker and a ‘health care’ executive, neither of whom can remember balancing the month with the money. The best argument I can see is that Jeb and Charlie have had 12 years with republican house and senate, and yet Florida government is still not ‘right sized’? Maybe Rick will be different but since he began the RPOF lovefest it doesnt seem like it.
    Perhaps, Just Maybe, Florida needs to get some new tension in the government that we havent seen in a while. With one party in total control, they work for themselves first. If we could arrange for any one of the House, Senate, or governor to be from a different perspective, some of the framers’ balance of power would help to right the ship. Until the gerrymandering begins next year, it is not likely the house or senate will change the balance of power. Since someone (like me) who can walk and chew gum will certainly not subject themselves to this process out of self preservation, we should work for Alex in the Governors office so that some level of gridlock will ensue and no monolithic party structure runs the state further into the ground. Taxes in FL are among the lowest in the nation at the state level, including real estate now that the market is approaching realistic, and we can impact county taxes the best without the state muddying the waters. Local control without unfunded mandates anyone?
    I realize this is a long and boring post because I am not vitriolic or rabid for anyone, but perhaps if one person thinks about it, thoughts could become contagious and we never know how that would end……
