Rick Scott Not Favored By Florida Voters For A Second Term: Poll

Source: Huffington Post


Most Florida voters, including Republicans, would like to see Gov. Rick Scott (R) challenged in 2014, according to a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University.

More than half of voters said Scott didn't deserve a second term, and 55 percent, including 53 percent of Republicans, wanted another candidate to challenge the governor in a primary. Scott's approval ratings, though improved from 2011, were also underwater.

Voters were more likely than not to say they liked Scott as a person, but just a third said they approved of most of his policies.

"Gov. Rick Scott's ratings with voters are just plain awful. The numbers cannot be sugar-coated," Quinnipiac's assistant director of polling, Peter A. Brown, said, noting that the only silver lining for the GOP was the chance of finding a more electable nominee. "When voters in a politician's own party want him to be challenged in a primary by another candidate, it's difficult to see it as anything but outright rejection."

6. I compared Gov. Scott to the guy in that pic

a few months ago on either raw story, huffpo, or this site.
And it turns out that someone knew that actor personally and said he would be insulted to be compared to Rick Scott.
Don't know if it's true, but I like to think it is.

11. No kidding!


I watched Soledad have him for breakfast this morning. I was truly astonished that somebody that vacuous could be elected.

13. there's no way he beats Alex Sink again

and if Crist runs, it's certainly over for his run as guv! I prefer Ms. Sink though.
