MIAMI — The final poll before the election shows Republican Marco Rubio with a big lead in Florida's U.S. Senate race while the governor's race remains too close to call.

In the governor's race, Democrat Alex Sink led Republican Rick Scott 44 percent to 43 percent.

Quinnipiac surveyed 925 likely voters between Oct. 25 and Sunday. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
