TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

A new poll shows Florida voters are split on whether they approve of President Barack Obama's job performance, but most approve of their senators' performance.

Forty-two percent of 1,160 registered voters surveyed by
Quinnipiac (Conn.) University favored an unnamed Republican
challenger for president next year compared to 40 percent who
prefer Obama.

Democrats favored Obama by 83 percent to 12 percent, but
Republicans opposed him 84 percent to 14 percent. Independents were split.

Meanwhile, Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat seeking a third term,
and newly elected Republican Sen. Marco Rubio enjoyed a 2-to-1
favorable to unfavorable standing.

Quinnipiac's random telephone survey taken by land line and cell
phone between Jan. 25-31 had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9
percentage points.
