In my previous post, it was amusing to learn that Florida Gov. Rick Scott basically said, “Hey, don’t blame me for that lousy election law, I only signed it!”
He’s not too bright, is he?
This is the image-conscious guy who admitted he dumped his dog Reagan after winning the election.
He’s not too principled, is he?
Now Public Policy Polling has a thing or two to say about a thing or two about how Florida feels about him:
Scott’s approval rating is just 33%, with 57% of voters disapproving of him… these numbers represent a regression from early November when he was at a 37/48 spread. Scott meets with near universal disapproval from Democrats (21/71) and independents (32/64) and is even on pretty shaky ground with Republicans (49/38). [...]
[Charlie] Crist would start out as the favorite in a showdown with Scott. He leads 53-39, most notably taking a whooping 29% of the Republican vote. He still has some residual appeal to Republican voters. Crist isn’t the only Democrat who could give Scott trouble for reelection though.
Sink (47/40), Iorio (43/39), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (44/42) all lead Scott in hypothetical head to head match ups as well. [...]
We actually find him trailing in a head to head contest with Allen West, 38/37.
He’s not to popular, is he?
Wait, Allen West? That Allen West? Noooooo!
