PPP poll: Charlie Crist Leads Rick Scott By Double Digits

Crist Leads Scott by Double-Digits in Florida

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Florida finds Charlie Crist (D) would handily beat Rick Scott (R) in a race for governor, 53% to 39%.

Key findings: Scott's approval rating is just 33%, with 57% of voters disapproving of him. Crist meanwhile is being embraced by Democrats with 52% of primary voters saying they'd like Crist to be their candidate next year.

8. I visited Florida recently for business. Crist is on one billboard all over the state.

I get the sense that Floridians respect the guy and now recognize what they lost.

3. PPP - the most accurate pollster. I'm heartened by these results. Fla needs to become Democratic

again, and people need to give the Republicans in the legislature the big boot.

10. Florida moved back to more democratic during the 2012 election.

If republicans continue their extreme political bent, Florida will move more toward democrats. One big change in the state are young Cubans, who as a group don't vote like their parents and grandparents. Plus recent Hispanic groups and Asian groups vote heavily democratic because of their concern about the hateful policies that republicans push in regards to them.

4. Florida teachers remember how Crist vetoed

the legislature's plans to defund our unions. Today Scott's 3% cut to our pay was approved by the state court. I hope every teacher, fireman, and police vote in the next election.

14. Yes, the verdict came in today. Rick and the legislature have ruined pensions and take 3% of pay

from every state worker. I got the information from my teacher union today. The District Court ruled in our favor, but the Superior Court voted 4 to 3 against us. I can't link it, but if you go to Fire Rick Scott on Facebook, there is plenty of information.

6. Jeb Bush endorsed Crist in 2004...

It's a sign of just how far right the GOP has moved that Crist is now a Democrat. I didn't vote for him in 2004, but he was not a bad governor. If he seeks the nomination, I will vote for him in the primary because the Democratic Party here in FL is in a shambles. He will not be a "progressive" but he will be a moderate Dem and that's the best we can hope for in FL. If he wins, he could be the model for other moderate Dems in currently Red led states.

13. Crist was elected in 2006.

Since he was a Republican at the time, I didn't vote for him but I did vote for him when he became an Independent and ran for the Senate in 2010. I agree that he was a pretty good governor for a Republican and certainly wouldn't complain if he were to come back, especially considering the jackass that's running the state now.

7. Crist is a good person and was a good Governor. Florida needs Crist to lead it out of the

sewer that Scott has led it into.

9. RW nutjobs hate Crist

 

I'd love to see them whine about a "RINO" beating one of theirs.
