President Trump’s overall approval rating in Florida is 43%, roughly the same as his national numbers. A ScottRasmussen.com statewide survey found that 57% disapprove. Those figures include 23% who Strongly Approve and 43% who Strongly Disapprove.
There is a massive 19 point gender gap in these results. Just 34% of women offer their approval along with 53% of men (see crosstab results). On a partisan basis, the numbers are about what you’d expect: 83% of Republicans approve along with 10% of Democrats and 36% of Independents.
The survey also found that 35% of Florida voters believe the country would be better off if Hillary Clinton was president. However, 37% think things would be worse. Twenty-eight percent (28%) believe it wouldn’t make all that much of a difference. Once again, these numbers are similar to the national average.
And, there is also a massive gender gap on this question. Florida women, by a 40% to 30% margin, believe things would be better if Clinton was in the White House. Florida men, by a 46% to 29% margin, believe things would be worse.
Voters under 50 tend to believe things would be better with a President Clinton. However, older voters tend to believe the opposite.
Additional data from the survey will be released throughout the coming week.
