TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A new poll says Florida Gov. Rick Scott's approval rating has climbed to 41 percent.
But 49 percent of the 1,241 likely voters polled during the past week still say they disapprove of Scott's performance as governor.
The numbers in the latest poll are improving for Scott, who has consistently languished below the 40 percent marker in many previous surveys.
The random telephone poll was conducted Aug. 15 to 21 by Quinnipiac University, CBS News and the New York Times. The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 2.8 percentage points in each of the three separate surveys.
Scott doesn't have a prime time spot at next week's Republican National Convention in Tampa. His speech is scheduled for early Monday evening.
