Photo Finish Horse Race For Florida Governor


It boggles the mind that anyone as scummy as Rick Scott actually has a fighting chance in this, but it looks like Sink might be closing this one up. No need to explain how important this state is to '12. Via Taegan-

The final Public Policy Polling survey in Florida shows Alex Sink (D) barely leading Rick Scott (R) in the race for governor, 48% to 47%.

Key takeaway: "If Scott does manage to pull it out he'll probably be the country's most unpopular newly elected Governor. Only 34% of voters in the state have a favorable opinion of him while 54% see him in a negative light. But Republican inclined voters are ultimately putting politics over personality and that's allowed Scott to make gains since our last poll."

Meanwhile, the final Sunshine State News poll shows Sink leading by three points, 49% to 46%.

    this highlights the influence that the religious right has on our politics...Scott's being pushed by the GOP and that is all it takes for party-line evangelical voters.. they will hold their nose and pull the lever against their better self intrest despite what they really think about their candidate because they are told at every turn that "you can not be a good christian and vote for a Democrat" get out and vote folks... lets take our country FORWARD!!
