A new poll in the Florida governor race showed Republican Rick Scott favored by 49 percent of voters and Democrat Alex Sink by 43 percent, with 7 percent undecided. Scott's lead results partly from a barrage of TV advertising and an edge among independent voters, according to a report at  miamiherald.com from the Miami Herald/St. Pete Times statehouse bureau.

The poll shows voters are lukewarm about both candidates.

"If there's a difference, the difference is this is a bad year to be a Democrat," said Peter Brown, assistant director of Quinnipiac's polling institute. "She's got an additional hurdle. The hurdle appears to be her association with President Obama."
