Jayant, as a Floridian myself, I suspect its related to our horrible unemployment rate. Its possible many former supporters have turned against him if they see the housing bubble/crash as an effect of his policies as governor.

Tom, with all due respect, a 45-42 favorability is surprisingly poor for Jeb Bush. He was extremely popular with the overall electorate, even though very unpopular with the Democratic base, when he finished his 2 terms as Governor, and hes been a private citizen for 3 1/2 years. And hes said and done nothing to become personally controversial since he finished as Governor. As a rule the publics hard feelings soften for any elected official in the years after retirement. Even Dubya is already less disliked now than he was his last day as President.So for all that, Jebs favorability in Florida today is just 45-42? Thats shockingly bad.I must conclude that either Jebs public image has tanked, or your polling misfired this time. I honestly am not guessing which of the two, as every pollster has outliers and theres no shame in that, but at the same time I suppose its possible that politicians have become so unpopular in the current environment that even years out of office one can be viewed worse than before.


Well in NC, a new poll was just released from Lake Research:Marshall 37%Burr 35%Cannot wait to see your next poll, on this race!

i am a floridian, and the problem is jebs business ties in the community. his business partners fled the country and can not return due to several inditements.also, his columbian born wife would not live in tallahasse, she had to be by all aspanish speaking folks. also, while his daughter was in rehab she was selling drugs to patients, he got her off those charges. there are some trust issues here.

I suggest that one waits till after Nov. to really do any polling for 2012. It depends on whether the entire nation if finally sick and tired of the progressive socialist pacifist Dems on local, state and Congressional levels to see how people begin to think of 2012. First, Fla. has to dispose of Judas Crist. Then it can think about do knowing Nelson. As to the Burr poll, I want to see how RAS and Zogby deal with that NC race before I believe Burr is that far behind his opponent.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
