Poll: Charlie Crist 52, Rick Scott 40



The Democratic firm Public Policy Polling gave Politico an early look at its latest Florida poll:

A new Public Policy Polling survey set for release today finds that Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott, who's long been considered one of Democrats' prime gubernatorial targets in 2014, still suffers from a low approval rating and trails a handful of potential Democratic opponents. PPP puts Scott's approval at 33 percent, compared with 57 percent disapproval. Up against Charlie Crist (as a Democrat), Scott is down 12 points, 52-40; against former Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio, Scott is down 7 points, 44-37; in a rematch with 2010 Democratic candidate Alex Sink, he's down 5 points, 45-40. Scott leads against former state Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich, 42-36.
