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.

    Before Scott was elected we knew who and what he was. AND YET we elected him. That’s a scary, head shaking thought going into November. So hopefully that help’s motivate us into doing something to see that it doesn’t get repeated!

    Obviously you’re a Florida resident, right? So how in the world DID Scott get elected? He’s a f–king crook. Did the “liberal media” just not talk about that, or what?

    The election of Rick Scott as the Governor of Florida took us all by horrible surprise. Republican’s were openly discrediting of him and even the PBA actively supported the Democrat Alex Sink. (Not even they could hold their nose for Lex Luther… I mean Rick Scott) A lot of the earned media he received during the campaign was deservingly negative. But that kept him in the news while his challengers in the primary and general didn’t get as much. Many of us union types were focused on the US Senate race. We all thought Alex Sink was going to be the winner right up to the very, very end. It was a learning experience that can not be repeated in Nov.

    It’s not funny at all how Romney and Scott have very similar deficiencies in their view of humanity,

    Maybe the election was rigged. How was Walker “saved” in Wisconsin? Just stupid, uninformed voters combined with a light turnout?

    In a comment I made at another site, I suggested that we give Florida to Raul Castro. Complete with all the spring break action! I’m wondering how a union member like Jim Pillow would feel about that?

    That’s called “Thinking outside the box.”

    Hah! That’s hilarious.
