In Wake Of Voter Purge, Rick Scott’s Approval Rating Drops To 31% | Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s continued push to remove hundreds of eligible voters is unpopular with both Democrat and Republican voters, according to Public Policy Polling. Just 31 percent approve of Scott’s performance and 56 percent disapprove. Support has dropped off among Republicans as well, which reflects the bipartisan opposition to his voter suppression efforts, including both Republican and Democrat local election officials. The voter purge especially targets minority voters, and more Hispanics (14 percent) and African-Americans (8 percent) said they knew someone who was removed from the voter rolls.
