A new Miami Herald poll indicates that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's approval ratings, which have long defied gravity, are starting to come down in the populous south:

The governor is doing a fair to poor job of handling South Florida issues, according to 52 percent of the people surveyed by Zogby International in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. That compares with 43 percent who say he's doing a good to excellent job.

It's the first time in Crist's 18 months in office that more people give the Republican a negative rating than a positive one. The one area South Floridians criticize him most: property taxes.
