Crist’s Contagious Optimism

November 19th, 2008 by flanews

Florida’s governor is known for his positive attitude and a recent poll may prove his optimism is contagious.

Despite skyrocketing unemployment and deep state budget cuts, Floridians told Quinnipiac pollsters they’re satisfied with the direction the state is going. Nationwide only one of every five people polled said they were happy with the direction of their own state. Quinnipiac Spokesman Peter Brown said Floridians tend to look at the brightside.

“Floridians are by nature an optimistic people. We asked voters in other states a variety of views on how they asses how things are going and Floridians just seem a little more optimistic,” said Brown.

One sign Floridians may be following Governor Charlie Crist lead; his latest approval numbers are almost 70 percent.
