TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- April 6, 2011 -
Rick Scott's honeymoon with voters is apparently over.
A new poll released Wednesday shows that 48 percent of 1,499
registered voters surveyed randomly by phone between March 29 and
April 4 disapproved of how Florida's new governor is taking care of
business, compared to 35 percent who said he's doing a good job.
The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.
Nearly three of five respondents told pollsters from Quinnipiac
University they were opposed to a new law that ties teacher pay to
student performance on standardized tests and they split evenly on
eliminating tenure for new teachers.
However, by nearly a 4-to-1 margin, voters said they approved of
Scott's order that newly hired state workers should be required to
undergo drug testing.
