Republican voters in Florida largely approve of Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Marco Rubio, who were swept into office in the 2010 elections.
Rubio, who defeated former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist for the Senate seat, won the approval of 77 percent of likely Florida Republican primary voters, according to Sunshine State News
. Only 10 percent disapproved of Rubio’s performance.
Fifty-nine percent approve of Scott’s performance in Tallahassee, while 23 percent disapprove. This was an improvement over Scott’s numbers last July, which showed 48 percent approval to 34 percent disapproval.
The poll of 1,266 likely Republican primary voters was taken Jan. 11-14 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.75 percent.
Florida’s 2010 gubernatorial race was the closest in 165 years, but ultimately Scott was able to defeat his Democratic challenger, Alex Sink.
