Republican Rick Scott continues to hold a small lead over Democrat Alex Sink in Florida’s gubernatorial race.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Florida finds Scott with 46 percent of the vote, while Sink’s support stands at 41 percent when leaners are included. Five percent favor some other candidate in the race, and seven percent are undecided.

That’s little changed from Scott’s six-point edge a week ago, but enough to move the race back from Leans Republican to Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard. At the beginning of September, the candidates were essentially tied.

The survey of 750 likely voters in Florida was conducted on Sept. 30, 2010, by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/-4 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
