Scott leads Sink 44-41 in new Miami Herald poll

Republican Rick Scott narrowly leads Democrat Alex Sink in Florida's too-close-to-call governor's race thanks to enthusiastic conservatives and widespread dissatisfaction with the economy, according to a new Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times poll.

Scott's three percentage point advantage among likely voters comes at the perfect time: the opening week of early voting, with more Republicans than Democrats headed to the polls.

But besting Sink, the state's chief financial officer, isn't a simple task for Scott, a political newcomer.

Scott's 44-41 lead is well within the poll's 4.1 percent margin of error. He also has the smallest advantage over a Democrat when compared to his three Republican colleagues who are besting their rivals by double digits in the statewide races for Florida's three Cabinet seats, according to the poll conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs.

Bill McCollum: Typical Political Parasite

People with disabilities, of all parties, when made aware of Sink's status of an Americans With Disabilities Act Cabinet level violator will sink Sink. The ADA Capitol Report at www.dignity4disabled.com tells all. Sink's Office paid contractors for the Capitol Building restroom rennovations that failed to include ADA required stalls for wheelchair users. Restrooms on Sinks floors are not ADA accessible. The word on Sink, the Cabinet ADA Violator continues to spread across Florida. Denny Wood

Advocate for the DD population

Sink has a very weak policy statement on the Developmentally Disabled issues also. Her biggest achievement was that she showed up at the Capitol, where she works daily, for DD day. Big deal. Rick Scott has a brother with special needs and his daughter is a special ed teacher. He has a much more detailed plan for this population. If you have a loved one with special needs, your vote should be for Rick Scott. No question about it.
