Quinnipiac poll shows Charlie Crist, Alex Sink leading November matchups



Alex Sink continues to gain ground in November's race for governor as the two Republicans wage an expensive battle to drive up each other's negatives, a new Quinnipiac University poll finds. If she were to face Bill McCollum (as yesterday's Q poll suggests), she would lead 31 percent to 29 percent. Against Rick Scott, she had a 33-29 lead. In both cases, independent Bud Chiles gets 12 percent and about a fifth of the electorate is undecided.

In the Senate race, Charlie Crist continues to hold about a seven point edge over Republican Marco Rubio. According to the poll, his lead is relatively the same regardless of who the Democratic nominee is. Against Kendrick Meek, Crist leads 39-32-16; while facing Jeff Greene he is up 40-32-15.

The poll was conducted from Aug. 11 to 16 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points with a 1,096-person sample size.
