Sink-ing Feeling: McCollum Ahead in New Poll

AG ahead of Sink in newest poll, Crist still leads Rubio

A new Quinnipiac University poll has Bill McCollum holding a slight lead over Alex Sink in the 2010 governor's race, while Charlie Crist still holds a wide lead in the Senate primary.

The poll, released today, had the Republican MCCollum favored by 38 percent of registered voters, compared to 34 percent for the Democrat Sink, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

McCollum, the state's Attorney General since 2007, and Sink, its CFO, are vying for the spot being vacated by Gov. Crist, who is stepping down as Governor to run for Senate.

Earlier this week, a Florida Chamber of Commerce poll had McCollum up 43-34 percent over Sink, with 22 percent undecided.

Meanwhile Crist is holding steady with a wide lead over primary opponent Marco Rubio, 55-26 percent, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 percentage points.

Crist has led most opponents in polls since announcing he'd run for the Senate seat.
