Rick Scott Had a Higher Approval Rating Than Another Human Being for Seven Days
A couple weeks ago, Gov. Rick Scott's approval rating reached an all-time high of 37 percent.
Since his approval rating has hovered between hemorrhoids and a ham sandwich for the past few months, it's been hard to actually compare his ratings to another human being.
However, we found that not only did Scott have a higher approval rating than another person for seven whole days, that other person was actually another governor -- Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
On September 19, a Quinnipiac University poll found Scott's approval rating to be 37 percent, eclipsing Kasich's August 14 rating of 36 percent.
At that point, Scott was dethroned as the least popular governor in the United States -- a title he's held since March. (That's a different title from "Worst Governor Ever.")
Scott held the title of not-least popular governor for a total of seven days -- until they polled Kasich again, who registered a 40 percent approval rating on September 26.
Unfortunately for Scott, there's no re-polling in the "Worst Governor Ever" contest.
You can find the results from all polls testing both governors' approval ratings below:
