Skip to comments.Gov. Rick Scott gains ground in new statewide poll, but still trails former Gov. Charlie Crist
Posted on 06/18/2013 3:21:01 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Gov. Rick Scott is more popular, according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University, but 50 percent of voters say he doesnt deserve to be re-elected and that he would lose handily to former Gov. Charlie Crist if the 2014 election were today.
Scotts standing with the public has been so persistently grim that any improvement looks like a breakthrough. His approval rating cracked 40 percent for the first time in the latest poll 43 percent of voters approve of his handling of his job, 44 percent disapprove.

They have declared war on Rick Scott, and are working overtime to push the prancer Charlie Crist back down our throats.
Florida FREEPers, I know many of you have qualms about Scott...but he IS better than Crist, or whoever the Demonrats support. Let's work to educate the voters, so that the media loses this election.
The RATs will crank up the vote fraud machine they used last year and push Suntan Charlie across the finish line....
agree, there is no way this fraud of a sissy boy can become Gov again
agree, he;s been a damn sight better than the last idiot we had and that;s why the media is in full attack and has been since he won his election.
This will come to turn out, the south for Crist and the dopey idiots w=down there who only thin name and go along with the media.
The central part which can go either way and it depends on turn out and then the north east and north west which will go for Scott
This state is truly two different states
I voted for him the first time. I will not vote for him this time because of the role he played in the legal lynching of George Zimmerman. In my opinion, he sold his soul to appease the rabble rousers. Let them re-elect him.
agree about zimmermann but bloody hell WOW letting Crist in would be a massive disaster and to stay at home and give us Crist would give us years of torture
Scott would need every vote and staying at home because of one issue and letting Crist in would do noting but help the left
And Scott is doing all he can to help them. He sided with them by leading the George Zimmerman lynch mob. I voted for him the first time, but I will not again. Let the rabble rousers he sold his soul to put him back in office.
Not this freeper. I am pleased with gov. Scott and would stay home rather than vote for Charlie crist.
Charlie Crist will have money from attys Morgan and Morgan to help him out I bet. Those are the attys (ambulance chasers) who had a fund raiser for Obama in Heathrow and Crist works for them right now.
I would think Crist would be an easy winner in 2014; people in FL aren’t really Floridian anymore.
Morgan and Morgan are the one of the largest, if not the largest Democrat donors in this state. They are huge fund raisers.
I don’t think the Democrat base wants to nominate the Orange Menace.
agree, no matter what good Rick Scott does the stinking local ‘newspaper’ slams him. IF they print anything good, it’s typically not on the front page or in bold print. Scott has an uphill battle. Also, agree that Scott is 100% better than chameleon Charlie.
hopefully, this time, the Republicans will have the courage to challenge voter fraud. wish I could feel confident about that....
Scott got really bad advice from that ditz Pam Bondi on the Zimmerman trial, and displayed his own lack of backbone as well.
‘.. to stay at home and give us Crist would give us years of torture..’
sounds familiar......like staying home gave us Mr. Obama and look what that’s done to America....and will continue for 3 more years.
got that right, remember some saying they will not vote, they will stay at home and look at what we got to spite their face for another 4 years.
Like hell will I stay at home and let Crist get power as this state is gone then
Yuck, did you have to mention Morgan & Morgan? When I lived in Orlando, the only way you could escape John Morgan’s ads was to switch the TV channel to PBS. Now I am in Lexington, KY, and he just followed me here; since last March he has been advertising out the wazoo on our local TV, radio, and billboards, too. I have warned my friends that he is not a Kentucky boy, any more than I am.
Mogan and Morgan are in Kentcky? Nothing escapes these people! I too hate the sleazy commercials they put on. Morgan and Morgan,for the people my behind!
Can’t stand them and Charlie Crist.
