Florida Likes Mike Pence But Not So High on Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi

Vice President Mike Pence is in better shape in Florida than the leaders of Congress, a new poll shows.

St. Leo University released a poll of voters in Florida and across the nation this week which looked at what they thought of Pence, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

Pence does well in Florida with 47 percent of voters in the Sunshine State approving of him while 41 percent disapprove of him and 12 percent are on the fence. The vice president does better in the Sunshine State than he does at the national level. According to a national poll from St. Leo, which is based out of Pasco County, 46 percent of voters across the nation disapprove of Pence while 44 percent approve of him and 10 percent are not sure.

Pelosi is upside down in Florida with half of those surveyed–50 percent–disapproving of her while 41 percent approve of her and 9 percent are not sure. At the national level, Pelosi does slightly better with 49 percent disapproving of her, 43 percent approving of her and 8 percent not sure.

McConnell is also underwater in Florida with 49 percent disapproving of him and 35 percent approving of him while 18 percent are not sure. That’s better than he does at the national level where 56 percent disapprove of him, 27 percent approve of him and 17 percent are not sure.

St. Leo conducted a survey of 1,000 voters across the nation from Nov. 13 through Nov. 18 with a margin of error of +/- 3 percent. The survey of 500 Florida voters was taken during the same period and had a margin of error of +/- 4.5 percent.
