McCollum 43, Sink 35 - Rasmussen

FALLING COCONUTS ALERT: CPR warns that standing under the Poll tree can cause serious injury.

Rasmussen concludes that their newest poll is showing that Republican Attorney General Bill McCollum's lead is dropping, Democratic CFO Alex Sink is hanging in, and wild-card Repubilcan Rick Scott could be a problem.

Rasmussen writes: The current results reflect the lowest level of support yet measured for McCollum and match the lowest total for Sink. Last month, McCollum posted a 45% to 38% lead over Sink, who is currently Florida’s chief financial officer.

In all seven surveys conducted by Rasmussen Reports on the race, McCollum’s support has ranged from 44% to 48%. In those same surveys, Sink has earned 35% to 39% of the vote.

Scott, who is challenging McCollum for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, is already competitive with Sink. He picks up 41% of the vote to Sink’s 40%. Seven percent (7%) like another candidate, while 12% are undecided. However, it is difficult to project how a newcomer will perform as a campaign unfolds.

This statewide telephone survey of 500 Likely Voters in Florida was conducted on May 16, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/-4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
