MIAMI, FL- In a newly-released  Quinnipiac poll, Democrat Alex Sink, and Republican Rick Scott are locked in a dead-heat, with Sink at 44 percent, and Scott at 43. 

"In the governor’s race, the victor will be whoever wins a majority of the 9 percent of likely voters who remain undecided at this late date," Peter Brown of Quinnipiac University said in an email. "Interestingly, there is no gender gap in the electorate, even though Ms. Sink would be Florida’s first woman governor."

In the past week,  Quinnipiac University surveyed 925 Florida likely voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points.
