Marco Rubio, Rick Scott in Solid Shape With Florida Voters, UNF Poll Finds

While they won’t face voters in November, both of Florida’s two U.S. senators are in good shape according to a new poll.

The Public Opinion Research Lab (PORL) at the University of North Florida released a poll of registered voters in Florida on Thursday which looks at how voters view U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla.

Rubio has the approval of almost half of those surveyed–49 percent–while 36 percent disapprove of him. Most Republicans–77 percent–approve of how Rubio is performing on Capitol Hill while only 23 percent of Democrats approve of the senator. Rubio does well with voters outside the major parties with 49 percent approving of him while around a third–32 percent–disapprove of him.

Scott is approved by 44 percent of voters while 36 percent of them disapprove of him. Most Republicans–74 percent–approve of Scott while only 19 percent of Democrats approve of him. Voters outside the major parties are divided on Scott with 41 percent of them approving of him while 37 percent disapprove of him.

The poll of 725 registered voters in Florida was taken from Feb. 10 through Feb. 18 and had a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percent.

  1. Well I don’t approve of either Rubio or Scott as Fla Senators. A disgrace in their voting record.

  2. Most who live in Florida know that the Jacksonville area is highly Republican and that, therefore, the poll numbers are ridiculously skewed. I can tell you that I, for one, never received a phone call polling me about the Senators’ despicable voting records in this state, but then I live in a little blue dot surrounded by a red sea of voters in Florida. My only hope is that Floridians will not suddenly have amnesia regarding the Senators’ votes in the impeachment hearings; they will remember that only Mitt Romney had the moral courage to see the Truth when it was in front of him and act accordingly; and that this is not a Super Bowl game because our entire country and everything it has ever stood for is at stake here.

    • Why should they have the power to take away your right to vote? Impeach in November if you don’t like your president. Your Senators gave you back your rights.

  3. Republicans are USELESS SHEOPLE in the fight to restore individual liberty and inalienable rights. They were bad before but they are essentially democrats now as the Party of Trump.

  4. In light of poor college education and indoctrination by left-leaning professors, we believe colleges should be responsible for unpaid student loans. Please address this concern.

  5. I went to this site hoping to hear that our voting registrations had been cleaned up and that something was going to be done about illegal voters, snow bird voting, and the voter corruption that we have had during pass elections. You know it was a big problem in 2016 and will be a bigger problem in 2020. We need accountability in our voter districts.
