In his second year in office, Gov. Rick Scott (R-Florida) blazed a trail of spending cuts, funding denials, and administrative disasters which all firmly entrenched him as one of the least-liked governors in the country.

With a little more than two years left on his term in office, Scott is prepping for a gubernatorial reelection bid with $5 million already in the coffers.

But even with the early fundraising numbers, the governor lacks favorability throughout Florida and even the majority of state-registered GOP voters, who said they'd vote for another candidate over the incumbent.

Perpetually prone to controversy, Scott's reign as head of Florida politics has been a goldmine of national political fodder, and his streak is bound to continue.
