Florida Gov. Rick Scott was recently greeted with a torrent of boos at an Orlando event celebrating Florida's new Major League Soccer team. A short video of Scott being booed was posted on YouTube by Jeffrey Billman.

According to a recent poll from Quinnipiac, Scott is currently sporting a negative approval rating, with only 42 percent approving and 47 percent disapproving. In polling matchups with his likely Democratic opponent, former governor (and former Republican) Charlie Crist, Scott is routinely shown to be on the losing end.
