PPPoll: Rick Scott so unpopular that switch Dem Charlie Crist would "crush" him

From Public Policy Polling, which typically surveys for Democrats and liberal groups:

Already the least popular governor in the country when PPP last polled  Florida in March, Rick Scott has slid even further in the public’s eyes.  Then 32% approved and 55% disapproved.  Now, 33% approve and 59% disapprove.  His entire decline has been with independents....

Voters also say they would vote for ex-[Republican/]governor Charlie Crist to return to office as a Democrat, 56-34 over Scott.  Independents would favor Crist, 62-30.  Voters are pretty warm to the idea of Crist running as a Democrat, with 43% saying he should join that party to 26% saying he should not.  Democrats are most supportive of it, 46-18. 

“If Charlie Crist has a future in electoral politics it’s probably as a Democrat,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.  “And while he would trounce Rick Scott the reality is that so would a ham sandwich as the Governor continues to become more and more unpopular.”
