CAMDEN, Conn. (AP) -- Governor Rick Scott remains pretty much under water with Florida voters.
A new poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University shows 38 percent of the 1,412 registered voters responding on a random telephone survey taken between Jan. 4 - 8 gave the first-term Republican a positive job approval compared to 50 percent who rated Scott's job performance negatively. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
The 38 percent approval rating though was the best Scott has received since taking office a year ago and better than the Legislature, which was seen positively by a third of respondents compared to 49 percent negative.
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has a 50 - 29 percent job approval, while Senator Bill Nelson has a 47 - 30 percent job score.
