Scott Polls Best Against Sink, McCollum Trails Democrat

Powered by Topple

scott-mccollumEditor’s Note – Rick Scott is polling better than McCollum against Democrat opponent Alex Sink, in fact, McCollum trails Sink in the poll results!

The one persistent argument from many is that Scott will not win the general election against Sink, yet, Rasmussen begs to differ.

Is this the death blow to McCollums’s campaign?  Is there still time to turn these numbers around?  The trend is not going in the right direction for McCollum at this point and time is running out.

Having had the opportunity to sit down with Bill McCollum yesterday, he remains focused and is optimistic that he will prevail in the end.  Being at a sizeable disadvantage financially, he explained the limitations that have been in place in getting his message out, yet, is still competing to reach the voters in the state over the next 3 weeks.


Election 2010: Florida Governor

Florida Governor: Scott (R) 35%, Sink (D) 31%, Chiles (I) 16%

Rick Scott remains the stronger of the two Republican hopefuls for governor of Florida against Democrat Alex Sink, with independent candidate “Bud” Chiles siphoning votes from both parties.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Florida shows Scott with 35% of the vote, Sink with 31% and Chiles trailing at 16%. Six percent (6%) like some other candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided.

If state Attorney General Bill McCollum is the GOP candidate, Sink earns 31% of the vote to McCollum’s 27%. Chiles picks up 20% of the vote. Eight percent (8%) favor another candidate, and 13% remain undecided.

This is the first Rasmussen Reports survey to include Chiles, the son of a popular former Democratic governor. In June, Scott posted a 45% to 40% lead over Sink, while McCollum edged the Democrat 40% to 38%.
