FL Gov's Approval Edges Up, But Still Very Low

According to a PPP poll, Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s approval rating has edged up slightly, but it still lingers at 36% approval and 52% disapproval.

From the release: “… (Rick) Scott still has scant company at the bottom of the well of governors.”

The good news is that his numbers are on the rise. 36% of voters now approve of him to 52% disapproving. That represents a 10 point improvement in his net approval from when we last polled the state in June, when he stood at 33/59. Scott's seen a particularly significant improvement in his standing with independents- they've gone from 27/64 to 35/52. Scott no longer holds the dubious distinction as the most unpopular Governor PPP has polled on in 2011- Ohio's John Kasich edges him out for that with a 53% disapproval rating.

The bad news for Scott is that he would still get crushed for reelection if he had to run today either against his 2010 opponent Alex Sink or his predecessor Charlie Crist.
