Several major polling outlets released polls in the days leading up to election day, and they all show much of the same things — the gubernatorial race is too close to call, and Republican Marco Rubio will be Florida’s next U.S. senator.

Here they are, in chronological order:

  • Public Policy Polling shows Democratic candidate for governor Alex Sink edging Rick Scott 48-47 percent. In the U.S. Senate race, Marco Rubio leads no-party candidate Charlie Crist 47-30 percent, with 21 percent going for Democrat Kendrick Meek.
  • Quinnipiac University Polling Institute shows Sink edging Scott 44-43 percent. Rubio leads Crist 45-31 percent, with 18 percent for Meek.
  • Sunshine State News shows Sink edging Scott 49-46 percent. Rubio leads Crist 48-30 percent, with 21 percent for Meek.
  • Rasmussen Reports shows Scott edging Sink 48-45 percent. Rubio leads Crist 50-30 percent, with 16 percent for Meek.
  • Mason-Dixon shows Sink edging Scott 46-43 percent. Rubio leads Crist 45-28 percent, with 21 percent for Meek.

All polls measured likely voters and were released Thursday through Monday.
