Florida Race For Governor Is A Tossup…


  …as of Fridays polling results conducted by RasmussenReports, one of the finer polling organizations in the country. New comer Rick Scott  (R) is holding a very slight lead over political pro and Democrat Alex Sink.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds Scott with 46% of the vote, while Sink’s support stands at 41% when leaners are included. Five percent (5%) favor some other candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

That’s little changed from Scott’s six-point edge a week ago, but enough to move the race back from Leans Republican to Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard. At the beginning of September, the candidates were essentially tied.

   What a choice to choose from! A former top dog at a healthcare corporation who somehow managed to avoid being convicted of fraud against the government, and a woman who just doesn’t get it either when it comes to what the working people of the state really need.

   The campaign theme on both side are more “tax cuts” and less  government spending. Where have you heard that shit before?

   “None of the above” may be my choice this election season.
