Polls determined that Floridians favor Scott over Crist to keep working hard for the Sunshine State.

The poll was conducted from Aug. 27 to Aug. 31, asking 814 voters whom they believed to be the best candidate to run Florida. It was found that 40.9 percent of them believed that Scott was the better option, Crist was five points behind with 35.7 percent of supporters in the sample, and Libertarian Adrian Wyllie had 6.3 percent of votes. However, 5.8 percent of the voters refused to answer and 8.9 percent were unsure  leaving 14.7 percent of the sample to vote for either candidate. Although this poll gives hope to Scott and his supporters, it does not mean that the governor has a secure seat for re-election. The poll mentioned before had a small sample and does not represent the other 11 million registered voters in Florida.

The three candidates, Scott, Crist and Wyllie, still have a lot of work to do in order to prove their suitability for the gubernatorial office. The elections are set to be held Nov. 4. As Florida law mandates, voters will be able to cast their early votes at least eight days before.

Although the elections are just around the corner, anything can happen to potentially allow either contender to take the lead and subsequently win the election. Both Scott and Crist are touring Florida to network with their supporters in hopes of strengthening their chances of victory.

Now is the time for voters to research each nominee’s capabilities thoroughly in order to make the wisest choice. Critics believe that Florida’s youth should become more involved in the election process to become more informed citizens of the great state that is Florida.

    Mazda 3′s are great cars! I must say though, the MazdaSpeed 3 is even better though. I’ve raced one a few times at some local autocrosses, and I must say, that thing has some serious out of the box kick to it!

    Most people concentrate to much on generating thousands of backlinks with black hat techniques and operate with the equation in mind backlinks is traffic. But you can generate more money with less traffic when you offer great content and tweak your conversion rate.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
