A CBS News poll conducted between June 19 and June 22 provides the latest piece of good news for Republicans hoping to beat back a predicted “blue wave.” Among likely voters, Trump has an approval rating of 53 percent in the poll while 48 percent disapprove of the president’s job performance.
The online survey of 1,002 registered voted – conducted for CBS News by YouGov – comes on the heels of a Politico poll released last week that had Trump at 48 percent approval in Florida and 49 percent disapproval. Factoring in the margin of error in both polls, Trump basically is even when it comes to those who approve and disapprove of his performance, a big improvement from just a few months ago. A Quinnipiac University Poll from February had Trump at 42 percent approval in Florida and 54 percent disapproval.
Democrats are energized to push back against Trump and the GOP agenda right now and have been getting out to vote.
And being associated with Trump hasn’t hurt candidates such as Gov. Rick Scott. The CBS poll had Scott, a Republican who strongly backed Trump in 2016, leading by five percentage points among likely voters in his bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. Scott had the support of 46 percent of likely voters, compared to 41 percent for Nelson. The governor’s approval rating in the poll is 62 percent among likely voters.
