From Public Policy Polling: One of the things we like to do sometimes on our polls is ask people in a particular state who their favorite and least favorite governors are out of the last five. We did that on our Florida poll and the results were kind of interesting:
-Jeb Bush rated as both the state’s favorite and least favorite Governor since Bob Graham. 42% picked him as their favorite, leading Graham at 23% and Lawton Chiles at 21%. 33% picked him as their least favorite with the other four recent Governors all falling between 16 and 19%. I know it’s shocking that a Bush would have this kind of polarizing impact.
-These numbers are yet more bad news for Charlie Crist. Only 4% of Republicans picked him as their favorite recent Governor, behind Democrats Graham and Chiles. 23% chose him as their least favorite. Just another data point indicating he’s in a lot of trouble for the primary. More here.
