MIAMI (AP) --

The final poll before the election shows Republican Marco Rubio with a big lead in Florida's U.S. Senate race while the governor's race remains too close to call.

The Quinnipiac University poll released Monday shows Rubio with
a 45 percent to 31 percent lead over Gov. Charlie Crist, who is
running as an independent in Tuesday's election. Democrat Kendrick
Meek received 18 percent.

In the governor's race, Democrat Alex Sink led Republican Rick
Scott 44 percent to 43 percent.

Quinnipiac surveyed 925 likely voters between Oct. 25 and
Sunday. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2
percentage points.

    If your not willing to work and want to take what someone else has earned, vote a straight Democrat ballot. If you have one ounce of pride and don't want America to become a socialist cesspool like so many european countries, vote Republican. Rubio has the Senate race already. If Sink doe's win, at least she isn't a national player and will only hurt Florida. The biggest Devil in the firebox and the most detrimental is Boyd. He is the biggest and most influential liberal powerhouse in Florida...Look at his voting record, there is nothing moderate about it.

    Scott is going to cut property taxes 19%? That sure sounds nice but how is he going to balance the budget with less income? Simple...cut...cut and cut some more. Florida is already near the bottom in the nation for pay and state employee/citizen ratio. Lines will get longer, more people lost in the system, longer time for responses and more unemployment due to position cuts.

    There isn't anyone to vote for and I believe in voting!! Did you see the debate? Sink couldn't even handle her own retorts with intelligence she had to resort to smirking and mocking laughter. They all should be disqualified but then a "good man" can't run unless he is a millionaire. We are free falling right into a big old pile of...
