The Associated Press reports:
A Quinnipiac University polls shows Republican Attorney General Bill McCollum has a slight lead over Democratic Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink in the governor's race.As the Miami Herald's Naked Politics blog notes, governor's survey represents a reversal of a June poll that showed Sink lead McCollum by the same margin, 38-34.
Thirty-eight percent of registered voters questioned in the poll released Wednesday favored McCollum, compared to 34 who preferred Sink. They're the only major candidates in the race. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
Both want to replace Republican Gov. Charlie Crist in next year's election. Crist is running for U.S. Senate.
The same poll showed a wide lead for Crist over primary opponent Marco Rubio, with 55 percent of Republicans favoring the governor and 26 percent supporting the former House speaker. That margin of error is plus or minus 4.6 percentage points.
