The Dream Team From Hell?
Some might say that a Donald Trump-Rick Scott ticket would be a match made in heaven (or hell for anyone who isn't one of the two) given their views on governing like a business that just may happen to help their own bottom lines.
Unfortunately for Scott, who's been rushing in front of television cameras every chance he gets to talk about the possibility that he could be on Trump's VP pick list, a recent poll shows there are a lot more voters from the "hell" side of the above equation:
"Florida Gov. Rick Scott has a negative 40 - 49 percent approval rating. He might hurt rather than help his fellow businessman-turned-politician Donald Trump's effort to carry Florida."
Now before you say "yeah, but that's just one poll, and it's Quinnipiac to boot," there's also this:
Voters disapprove 49 - 40 percent of the job Gov. Rick Scott is doing, continuing his five-year trend of mostly negative scores.
Scott has been underwater in the polls nearly all of his time in office, and it's not just the Q polls that showed that. He's consistent for being loathed as a governor and there's no shortage of reasons for those numbers.
This particular poll might give one a bit of hope for the country. Because as bad as Rick Scott is, and in spite of his winning not once, but managing to get reelected, some formerly asleep at the wheel voters have awakened to the fact that he's so bad he could even hurt Donald Trump's chances, and that's saying something.
So what are you waiting for Trump? Sounds like a dream team to me!
