Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) Helping Obama in Florida, Maybe
When you hang out solely with people who share your beliefs and you get your “news” from Fox and winger hate radio, you think you live in a vacuum:
Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Approval Rating Free Falls, President Obama Now More Popular In The State
Here’s a lesson for Republicans: When you try to strip voters of their rights, it pisses them off. Governor Rick Scott’s attempts to purge eligible voters from the rolls has angered the citizens of Florida. Even Republicans have a problem with this clearly unconstitutional and devious plot to weaken democracy. In fact, Scott has managed to find himself with an incredibly low approval rating in the wake of the voter purge scheme. The newest PPP Poll hands Scott a 31% approval rating, while 56% disapprove. His numbers are so bad that Republicans would rather see a little known Democrat named Nan Rich defeat Scott in the next election.
In other good news for Democrats, President Obama now enjoys a six point lead in Florida over his Republican opponent Mitt Romney, according to an NBC Marist Poll. … So overall, Democrats are seeing very positive numbers in Florida. Keep up the good work, Rick Scott! You’re the best player on the Democrat’s team.
Then again, what voters think might not matter. After all, despite being warned by the Attorney General’s office to stop purging the voter rolls, Scott is still doing it. Maybe they figure they’ll rig the election, flood the airwaves with deceitful ads due to their unlimited money and their guy will “win” anyway.
