Joe Henderson: Rick Scott’s approval rating climbs because the economy trumps everything

in 2017 by

The steady increase in Gov. Rick Scott’s approval rating has reinforced the notion that if voters have a job and the economy seems to be humming along, other things don’t matter much. The latest poll, released this week by Morning Consult, put Scott’s approval number at 57 percent. Considering that he stood at 26 percent in 2012 according to Public Policy Polling, that’s downright miraculous. That same PPP poll five years ago included a forecast that Scott would lose a…

Another poll of Florida’s U.S. Senate race shows Republican incumbent Marco Rubio with a solid lead over Democratic U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy. The Public Policy Polls survey released Friday afternoon shows Rubio leading Murphy, 44 percent to 38 percent. Libertarian candidate Paul Stanton gets 6 percent. Removing Stanton from the list of available choices doesn’t improve things much for Murphy. In a one-on-one matchup, Rubio leads 48 to 43 percent. Murphy has been blasting Rubio for standing by his endorsement of Donald Trump, even in the wake of his…

PPP poll: Florida voters want gun background checks, no-fly no-buy

in Statewide by

A new poll says that Floridians want stronger background checks and no-fly, no-buy restrictions for guns — and feel strongly enough about it to vote that way. Public Policy Polling said the results also say that making it harder for criminals to get guns is either a “very important” or “somewhat important” issue for them in the upcoming election. PPP surveyed both Florida and New Hampshire voters, measuring both gun issues and their potential impact on the U.S. Senate races…

Mitch Perry Report for 6.21.16 — After gun control proposals go down, Bill Nelson says “The NRA wins again”

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

The U.S. Senate voted on four different gun-control proposals last night — two offered by Republicans, two by Democrats. They all failed. First up was California Democrat Dianne Feinstein‘s bit, which would give the Department of Justice the power to stop anyone on the terror watch list from buying a gun. That garnered just 47 votes. Then came Texas Republican John Cornyn‘s proposal, which would have law enforcement notified when someone on the terror watch list tries to buy a gun, failed with just…

New poll shows Rick Scott more popular than Marco Rubio in Florida

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Rick Scott‘s favorable ratings have tanked to just 38 percent, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey released on Tuesday. However, he’s not the worst ranked Republican elected statewide in Florida. That would be Senator Marco Rubio, the presidential candidate who is only at 31 percent support, with 55 percent opposing him. Florida’s other Senator, Democrat Bill Nelson, receives 40 percent support, with 32 percent opposing. Perhaps the most interesting listing in the PPP survey is on social issues, where the state…
