TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott's approval rating is improving, though not to the point that it's likely to deter any potential challengers in 2014.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows 43 percent of voters approve of the job Scott is doing and 40 percent have a favorable opinion of him.
While those numbers aren't sizzling, they are better than the 36 percent job approval that voters gave him three months ago.
Then, 33 percent had a favorable view of the Republican governor.
The poll shows Scott is still trailing former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist in a head-to-head matchup.
Crist is widely expected to seek his old job as a Democrat.
The poll shows 47 percent would support Crist to 37 percent for Scott.
The margin of error was plus/minus 2.9 percentage points.
