The new Rasmussen poll of the Florida gubernatorial race gives Republican former health care executive Rick Scott the lead over Democratic state Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink.
The numbers: Scott 46%, Sink 41%. The survey of likely voters has a Â±4% margin of error. In the previous Rasmussen poll from last week, Scott led by 50%-44%.
This result is similar to a Quinnipiac poll released earlier today, which put Scott ahead by 49%-43%. The TPM Poll Average gives Scott a lead of 46.8%-43.2%.
