Crist Liked, Palin Loved

September 8th, 2008 by flanews

Despite an unemployment rate that exceeds the national average, dwindling state revenue, and losing a spot on Senator McCains ticket Governor Charlie Crist remains popular in Florida. A new Quinnipiac poll released today has Crist approval rate at 61 percent. Crists popularity in Florida peaked at 73 percent in March of 2007 but has remained steady around 60 percent this year. Assistant Director of the polling institute Peter Brown said Crist is one of the most liked governors in the country.

Floridians like Charlie Crist a lot. They think hes done a good job, they think hes kept his campaign promises. Hes got two years to go before the election, but among sitting governors in the country, hes in pretty good shape, said Brown.

One governor more popular in her state than Crist is in Florida is McCains running-mate Sarah Palin. Palins approval rating among Alaskans is in the 90s.
