A poll shows Florida Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Alex Sink is now ahead of her prospective Republican opponents.

A Qunnipiac University poll released Thursday shows Sink with 31 percent to Bill McCollum's 29 percent in a hypothetical matchup of November's general election. She leads the other Republican candidate Rick Scott 33 percent to 29 percent. McCollum and Scott compete in Tuesday's primary. Independent Bud Chiles received 12 percent.

In the Senate race, independent Gov. Charlie Crist leads Republican Marco Rubio and both prospective Democratic nominees. If Kendrick Meek is the Democratic nominee, Crist gets 39 percent, Rubio 32 percent and Meek 16 percent. If Jeff Greene is the Democrat, Crist gets 40 percent, Rubio 32 percent and Greene 15 percent.
