Miscellaneous notes from Public Policy Polling:

Barack Obama, Bill Nelson, Marco Rubio, and Rick Scott all have sub 50% approval ratings in Florida but one person who does achieve a high level of popularity in the state is…Tim Tebow. 59% of Floridians have a positive opinion of him to only 16% with an unfavorable one. He’s particularly strong with Republicans (71/10) but is seen well by independents (57/13) and Democrats (50/21).

The tough year for Florida football is reflected in first year coach Will Muschamp’s approval numbers.
