Crist, Obama Compete for Mr. Popular

February 19th, 2009 by flanews

President Barrack Obama and Governor Charlie Crist are neck and neck in a popularity contest.

According to a Quinnipiac Poll released today 64 percent of Florida voters says Obama is doing a good job. 67 approve of the job Crist is doing. The stimulus package isnt as popular. 51 percent of Floridians think it will have a positive impact on the states economy, but Pollster Peter Brown says 49 percent dont like the giveaway.

They are much more pessimistic about the state and national economy than they are about their own wallets and their own pocket books. More than 9 in 10 Floridian classified the state and national economy as not so good, but only slightly more than have say they would classify their own finances that way, said Brown.

Sixty percent of Floridians polled say they dont think the stimulus package will help their finances.
