Poll: Crist Still Very Popular, but Florida Headed in Wrong Direction

October 26th, 2007 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist continues to enjoy sky-high approval ratings, but a new poll shows a majority of Florida voters don’t like the direction the state is heading.  The Florida Chamber of Commerce poll found that 79 percent of voters approve of the job the governor is doing.  51 percent believe Florida is heading in the wrong direction, while 32 percent view the future of the state favorably.

“Governor Crist has been able to separate himself from the voter frustration on the property tax issue very effectively,” said Kirsten Borman, with the Florida Chamber of Commerce.  “Voters feel that Governor Crist is relating with them on a personal level.  He understands the problem of property taxes.  However, they’re not connecting him with their frustration with the legislature and with the legislation as it relates to the issue.” 

The Florida Chamber of Commerce says 39 percent of voters believe property tax relief is a top issue.  That’s up 6 percent from February.
