A new survey from the Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative (Nov. 2-5; 500 RVs; +/- 4.5%) found that 72 percent said Scott’s Hurricane Irma response was good or excellent. Of those surveyed, more than 56 percent said it will aid him if he runs for Senate against Sen. Bill Nelson (D).

“Overall, 49 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Scott, while 39 percent have an unfavorable opinion of the two-term governor. … Nelson had a 45 percent favorability rating, while 22 percent view him unfavorably.”

“President Donald Trump's approval rating among Florida voters rose slightly to 41 percent from 37 percent in August, while his disapproval rating remained at 47 percent.” (release)
