Tallahassee, FL - Governor Rick Scott’s job approval rating has stayed the same, at 35 percent, but according to a Quinnipiac Poll released today, the percentage of voters who disapprove of the new governor has more than doubled.

48 percent of the 15-hundred voters polled say Scott is doing a poor job governing. Pollster Peter Brown says the Scott brand is down right now, but he has plenty of time to repair his image before the next election in 2014.

“Currently, Scott is a four letter word in the state of Florida. But he doesn’t come up for reelection in the state of Florida for another 41 months. That’s a long time,” said Brown.

But not all of Scott’s plans are unpopular with the public. 80 percent of people polled agree with Scott’s decision to drug test state workers.
