TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Scott remains pretty much under water with Florida voters.

A new poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University showed 38 percent of the 1,412 registered voters responding on a random telephone survey taken between Jan. 4-8 gave the first-term Republican a positive job approval compared to 50 percent who rated Scott's job performance negatively. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

The 38 percent approval rating though was the best Scott has received since taking office a year ago and better than the Legislature, which was seen positively by a third of respondents compared to 49 percent negative.

Scott delivered his second State of the State address Tuesday as Florida lawmakers kicked off the 2012 legislative session.
