In it, but not of it. TPM DC
Scott's approval rating has gone from bad to horrendous since Quinnipiac last checked in on him back in April. At that time, 35% of voters approved of Scott's job performance, while 48% disapproved.
The current TPM Poll Average shows that 46.2% of Floridians disapprove of Scott's job performance, while 31.8% approve of it.
Scott's approval rating cratered shortly after he was sworn in when the first-term governor pushed a plan to eliminate tenure for new teachers, and to tie pay to performance levels. By March, polls showed Scott -- who won a nail biter last year by a one-point margin -- losing a do-over election by a whopping 20 points.
The latest unpopular move by Scott is the budget he's set to sign this week, one which will slash around $4 billion, including a $1.35 billion cut to education spending, and a $1 billion reduction in Medicaid funding.
In the poll, 53% of voters said they didn't like the new budget, while just 24% said they did. And by a similar margin, 54% said that budget was "unfair" to people like them, while 24% said it was not.
The poll was conducted May 17-23 among 1,196 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 2.8%.
