Poll: Conservatives Are the Anti-Crist; A Ham Sandwich Could Defeat Rick Scott for Governor

Ham, a viable gubernatorial candidate.
As Gov. Rick Scott's disapproval rating keeps climbing, pollsters have run out of people to compare him with -- that's why Public Policy Polling says a hypothetical gubernatorial race between Scott and a ham sandwich would be a runaway for the lunch meat.

The pollsters were surveying for the governor's approval rating yet again and at the same time attempting to see how he'd fare against other state politicians if the race for governor were held today -- finding that voters are "pretty warm" to the idea of former Gov. Charlie Crist running for governor as a Democrat.

"If Charlie Crist has a future in electoral politics, it's probably as a Democrat," Public Policy Polling President Dean Debnam says. "And while he would trounce Rick Scott, the reality is that so would a ham sandwich as the governor continues to become more and more unpopular."

Respondents to the poll across the ideological spectrum agreed that Crist should become a Democrat.

When asked about the hypothetical matchup between Scott and Crist, it looks like a runaway in almost any fashion, especially among independent voters.

Given the choices of Scott and Crist, 73 percent of self-described "moderate" voters say they would vote for Crist, compared to 22 percent for Scott.

Obviously, the results are even more slanted from the "somewhat liberal" (78 percent to 10 percent) and "very liberal" respondents (80 percent to 9 percent) in favor of Crist.

The conservative side, however, came with some different answers.

Those who said they were "somewhat conservative" were nearly split on Scott versus Crist, with 43 percent saying they'd vote for Scott and 42 percent for Crist -- which is well within the margin of error (3.4 percentage points).

That brings us to the point of ultraconservatives being the anti-Crist.

Seventy-seven percent of those identifying as "very conservative" would keep Gov. Scott, while only 16 percent would go for Crist.

Poll respondents gave Alex Sink -- Scott's foe in the last election -- a 22-point lead over the governor in a hypothetical election held today.

PPP is a self-admitted Democratic-affiliated polling firm, although the Wall Street Journal found it as one of the most accurate in the country during the last election cycle.

Out of the 848 Florida voters surveyed, 27 percent identified as liberal, 30 percent as moderate, and 43 percent as conservative.

But Scott just went to the Koch's luxury resort, along with the other lock step governors, to receive their spray of "tea fairy dust" so they can continue on the good deeds tour.  You know the one that kills the middleclass?

I seem to remember a bunch of polls showing how Charlie Crist was going to be elected to the US Senate by a landslide. How did that work out?

It's unfair putting pork on the sandwich. As Chet from Weird Since once said, "How 'bout a nice, greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?" The ashtray sandwich would win by a landslide.

The republican's "Boy Wonder" continues to destroy them from within by blatantly revealing their agenda without the lies and distortions of political theater.

I give them two months before THEY launch a recall to try and save any chance that Obama won't take Florida in 2012.

Hey Douchenozzle: I am a small business owner who employs people, pays a lot in taxes and has never taken a "handout".

You're just too ignorant to comprehend that Scott represents the elite, the wealthy.

Middle class conservatives--like yourself--are stooges for the elite.

No more handouts? What exactly do you believe the Koch brothers do?

His party decided they needed Marco Rubio more, as he would sway the hispanic bloc. His own party used him and abused him.

I like your idea but Florida has no recall process for the guv.

Hey Anal Wart; what is your small business? A Pill Mill or a Fetish Shop?Since you so proudly believe in all this Left Wing bullcrap, why don't you lead by example. Volunteer 75% of all of your income annually to the IRS. There is no law that says you can't give more to them.Oh Yeah, that's right; You lefties ( Turbo Tax Geithner ) don't pay your taxes; you cheat and lie your way out of paying them.

Hypocrite - not a single written word from you about the Bilderberg Group and all the leftist like Soros. Are you credible? No. Are you a Left Wing Puppet Hack? Yes.

P.S. My small business does not fall into either of those categories and incidentally, that rightwing mantra which suggests that we voluntarily send more in taxes-- and that is somehow a solution to a serious problem-- represents a stool sample from the diseased and dull mind of a conservative.

Probably a tea bat.

Anyone who thinks that the Bilderberg group-- which Geithner is a part of-- is a leftist organization, as opposed to what it actually is-- an international group of capitalist elitists-- is an uneducated and misinformed moron.
