Poll Finds Mixed Reviews for Citizens

December 20th, 2006 by Mike Vasilinda

A new survey finds more than one in five voters believe property insurance is the biggest problem facing Florida today. But the Quinnipiac University poll also found many voters do not support the state getting into the “reinsurance” business to backstop insurance companies. The proposal is geared toward encouraging insurance companies to lower their rates. But pollster Peter Brown says 49 percent of voters who responded to the poll are not on board. “It reflects a general skepticism about government getting too much in the reinsurance business and too much putting itself at risk, i.e. tax dollars at risk, in case of another catastrophic storm.”

A majority of voters also say they’re unhappy with the state’s Save Our Homes property tax structure. While 57 percent of voters rate outgoing Governor Jeb Bush as “good,” or “great” in the wide-ranging survey, more than one out of five say they expect Governor-elect Charlie Crist to do an even better job.
