In terms of polling the GOP primary for Florida governor is extremely volatile. Two polls done roughly over the same period (Mason dixon and PPP). One showing McCollum+9, the other Scott+7. This one could either be really close or could be a blowout for either side. However, whether the nominee is Scott or McCollum both will enter the general election with extremely high unfavorable numbers and that bodes well for Alex Sink. The only thing that could help Sink more is if the primary ends up having a bloody recount between McCollum and Scott (and we all know how well Florida handles those).

and one last note, Rick Scott should behind bars.

"and one last note, Rick Scott should behind bars." Gee I think we could say the same thing for some of our current leaders.

As for this poll I am less inclined to believe the results in the GOP primary because of the huge 5.6% margin of error and the small sample of primary voters. Rather, I would go with Mason Dixon which used a much larger sample size, which resulted in s smaller margin of error and found McCollum with a narrow edge. I don't know who will win this primary but whoever does I suspect they can turn things around against a weak but likeable candidate in Sink.
