TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --
A new poll shows Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott still burdened with a low standing among the state's voters.
Voters were split evenly when asked if they liked the new governor as a person. However, 50 percent said they disapproved of the job he's doing compared to 37 percent who gave him a favorable job rating.
The numbers are slightly better for the governor than in early August when 52 percent disapproved compared to 35 percent who believed Scott was doing a good job after slightly more than eight months in office.
Quinnipiac (Conn.) University randomly surveyed 1,007 registered
voters by land line and cell phones between Sept. 14 and Sept. 19.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage
