GOP Feeling Queasy About New Poll Numbers for Rick Scott
Florida Republicans are feeling sick to their stomach about a bunch of new poll results on Gov. Rick Scott (R).
The new polls show former Gov. Charlie Crist, Scott’s very likely Democratic challenger int he general election, with strong support across the state. One poll reported by the Miami Herald, for instance, has Crist beating Scott by 34 percentage points in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
“There’s no way to sugarcoat this: It’s awful,” a top Florida Republican told the Herald in response to seeing the crosstabs for the new poll numbers.
