Florida Governor: Scott (R) 41%, Sink (D) 36%, Chiles (I) 8%
The first Rasmussen Reports post-primary survey of the Florida governor’s race finds Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Alex Sink in a close contest.
Scott, the winner of Tuesday’s bruising GOP Primary, earns the support of 41% of Likely Voters in the state, while Sink picks up 36% of the vote. Independent Bud Chiles runs a distant third with eight percent (8%). Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and nine percent (9%) are undecided.
Earlier this month, prior to the primary, Scott posted a 35% to 31% lead over Sink, the state’s chief financial officer who faced only token opposition in Tuesday’s Democratic Primary. Chiles, who has worked in the non-profit sector and is the son of a former Democratic governor, picked up 16% support at that time.
The Florida race is rated a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
