Dem, GOP Insiders Agree: Whitman, Strickland Going Down

Finally, in the hotly contest Florida governor's race, the Insiders were split. Among Democratic Insiders, 61 percent said that their nominee, state chief financial officer Alex Sink would be the next occupant of the governor's mansion in Tallahassee, while 39 percent thought that her GOP opponent, businessman Rick Scott would be moving in. Republican Insiders sharply disagreed on the outcome of this race: 81 percent thought that Scott would prevail, while only 19 percent gave the nod to Sink. Combining the responses from Insiders in both parties, 60 percent gave the advantage to Scott, while 40 percent thought Sink would win the race.
