Dem poll finds Scott ‘incredibly unpopular,’ high marks for Rubioby George Bennett | March 29th, 2011
The bad news: that approval rating was, and is, in the low 30s, according to the Democrat-oriented Public Policy Polling firm.
A new PPP survey finds only 32 percent of Floridians approve of the job Scott is doing as governor, while 55 percent disapprove. He’d lose a hypothetical do-over election to Democrat Alex Sink by a 56-37 percent margin.In December, PPP found only 33 percent of Floridians had a positive view of their governor-elect after his narrow win over Sink. PPP’s Tom Jensen calls Scott “incredibly unpopular.”
Rookie Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, on the other hand, has an approval/disapproval score of 43/31. That’s better than two-term Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson‘s 38/34 score as he heads into a 2012 reelection bid.
