weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Sink received 45 percent to Scott's 41 percent with
11 percent undecided. Nine percent say they might change their

Quinnipiac surveyed 784 likely voters between Oct. 18 and 24.

    Republican straight across the board for me. I'm tired of Obama and Obamacare. People wake up and see the light. Stop being ignorant and do your research! Socialism in this country, I think NOT!

    Sink supports Obamacare. For that reason alone she does not have my vote- or any one else's in my household. And yes- she is the Southern version of Nancy Pelosi/Barbara Boxer.

    Judging from the comments on this website, crooked frauding Rick Scotts tactics to scare the people who really don't have a clue (ignant!) into voting for him is working. These idiots actually beleive the lies he is advertising. Hey poor people, who don't beleive in helping the "lazy" -- you aren't rich enough to benefit from a Billionaire Governor. You are not his friend. 12 years of Republican leadership has FL's unemployment rate waay over the national average---not the woman or the black man in Washington DC. Rednecks!

    @Jay - I think Rubio will safely win. I don't know what poll you saw that had McCain in front of Obama at the end, but I don't think there was one. Anyways, I'm voting for Sink, and I think I will do it tomorrow. If Scott doesn't scare you, he should.

    48 million people in this country are on food stamps. Nancy Pelosi says this is a "good thing". We know who they'll vote for so don't be suprised if the Dems do better than expected. Plus, there is also evidence that the Dems are cheating in several states as well as suppressing the military vote. Great government isn't it?

    Some people seem to be gluttons for punishment. Haven't you watched enough money wasted and heard enough lies out of the Democrats. Everything, from the promise of jobs to lowering the deficit has been nothing but deceit. And still there are those who are dumb enough to put one in the Governors office....

    Scott is a crook and the person who handed Alex Sink the phone was paid by him to do it. She has a daughter living in Europe anytime a mom is handed a phone during something like that you assume the worst and of course look at or answer the phone. It was a setup. Scott is trying to ride this cause he knows he has no chance. A febble attempt to make her look bad. She did the right thing and fired the person but no less he was paid well by Scott so he doesn't need a job now.
