TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) - A new poll says Florida Gov. Rick Scott's chances for re-election are in jeopardy.

A poll of registered voters in Florida found that 52 percent say he does not deserve a second term. Scott, who narrowly beat Democrat Alex Sink in 2010, has already said he plans to run in 2014.

The poll also found that 53 percent of Republicans think another Republican should run against Scott in a GOP primary.

The Quinnipiac University poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent.

Scott has been battling low approval ratings since he took office. The new poll shows that only 36 percent approve of the job he's doing.

The poll also shows that former Gov. Charlie Crist has a 47 percent favorable rating. Crist, who was elected as a Republican and then turned independent, became a registered Democrat last week.
