Crist’s Approval Ratings Remain Strong

April 10th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist continues to receive a favorable rating from a majority of Floridians. The latest Quinnipiac Poll says 59 percent approve of the job he is doing. The rating is down, but pollster Peter Brown says that to be expected.

Theres very little partisan difference in how voters perceive Charlie Crist. By and large, they all like him and thats unusual, Peter Brown, a Quinnipiac University Pollster said. Again, he used to be in the 70’s but that kind of drop is not unexpected and frankly, again, given the state budget system, the general worries about the economy, the fact that he has such a positive job approval rating is highly unusual in a two-party state.

The poll also found that a majority, 55% to 40% approve of using gambling revenue to off set school budget cuts. Floridians also say, by a margin of 69 to 29 percent, that its a good idea to raise the tax on cigarettes by a dollar and use the money for health care.
