RALIEGH, N.C. - If an election do-over for Florida Governor were held today, Republican Governor Rick Scott would suffer a landslide loss.
According to new figures from Public Policy Polling, Republican Governor Rick Scott would "overwhelmingly lose" to Democrat Alex Sink by a 56-37% margin.
In a release, PPP said when Scott prepared to take over as governor last December, "only about a third of voters liked him, and 43% disliked him. But instead of building good will in the last few months, Scott has continued to turn more voters off. Now roughly the same amount approve of his job performance (32%), but his disapproval rating is 55%."
PPP said its data makes Scott the least popular currently serving governor.
Things are much better for newly-elected U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, who has a 43% approval rating and 31% disapproval rating in the PPP poll..
"Rubio has already made a far bigger impression on voters than his appointed predecessor George LeMieux ever did," according to the PPP release.
