TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- April 7, 2011 -
President Barack Obama has some work to do with Florida voters if he hopes to win the state's 29 electoral votes next year.
A new Quinnipiac University poll shows slightly more than half
of registered voters surveyed disapprove of the job he's doing and
say he doesn't deserve a second term.
The poll also shows that an unnamed Republican challenger would
likely be in a close race with the president. But 70 percent said
they personally like Obama, including 30 percent who said they
don't like his policies. Obama won Florida in 2008.
Forty-seven percent approve of U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's job
performance compared to 26 percent who disapproved.
The poll of 1,499 registered voters, conducted March 29 to April
4, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
