Rick Scott's Approval Rating Falls to 27 Percent in Conservative Poll
Sunshine State News -- which, as evidenced by the defensive tone of the post, slants well to the right -- commissioned the poll from Voter Survey Service. The survey shows that only 27 percent of Floridians approve of Scott's job performance, while 58 percent disapprove.
Compare that to the PPP poll released late last month, which showed Scott with a 33/59 approval/disapproval. A Quinnipiac poll in May showed a 29/57 percent split.
We're not suggesting that Sunshine State News or Voter Survey Service would try make the poll somewhat favorable to Scott or questioning their accuracy. We're just saying that no matter which way you slice it and no matter who conducts the poll, one thing remains clear: Rick Scott is deeply unpopular.
The poll was conducted from July 5 to 7 and comes after Scott showing some moves hinting he might be trying to improve his popularity, including an ill-fated letter-writing campaign.
