Alex Sink leads Rick Scott in new Zogby poll



With independents showing their strong support for Democrat Alex Sink, the state's chief financial officer holds a lead over Republican Rick Scott, 43.1 percent to 38.5 percent, according to a new Naples Daily News/Zogby poll.

The poll of 802 likely voters, conducted Oct. 18-21, shows 46 percent of independent voters are supporting Sink, compared to 26 percent for Scott. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. 

The numbers are a flip-flop of a Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 poll conducted Oct. 15-19 that showed Scott leading 44 percent to Sink's 41 percent, all within that poll's 4.1-percentage-point margin of error.
