Rasmussen Reports

Republican businessman Rick Scott has moved to a six-point edge over Democrat Alex Sink and has hit the 50% support mark for the first time in Florida’s gubernatorial race.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Scott with 50% of the vote, while Sink, the state’s chief financial officer, earns 44% support when leaners are included. Six percent (6%) of voters prefer some other candidate in the race.

The new numbers shift this race to Leans Republican from a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.

Earlier this month, the two were virtually tied counting leaners, with Sink at 48% and Scott at 47%. Leaners are those who initially indicate no preference for either of the candidates but answer a follow-up question and say they are leaning towards a particular candidate. Rasmussen Reports now considers results with leaners the primary indicator of the race.

Scott holds a 46% to 41% edge over Sink when leaners are excluded from the totals. In the previous survey, Scott earned 45% to Sink’s 44% minus leaners.
