Sink Hold Slight Edge Over McCollum

June 9th, 2009 by flanews

Democrat Alex Sink has a slight edge over Republican Bill McCollum in the 2010 governors race according to a poll released Tuesday.

The Quinnipiac Poll gives Sink a 38 to 34 edge over the Attorney General, but gives McCollum a better job approval rating. The poll has a margin of error of 2.8 percent. Quinnipiac Pollster Peter Brown said Sinks four point edge doesnt mean much.

McCollum is in good shape. His numbers are very good. Hes obviously run before statewide. Hes got pretty good name ID. Its not universal like Governor Crist, but its pretty good. And Sinks name ID is just not as high. Shes not been around as long. This starts out as a fairly even race, said Brown.

Both candidates have a huge lead within their parties, but among independent voters McCollum is leading by five points, 32 27.
