In what could be a dismal sign for President Obama's 2012 re-election bid, a new poll finds a slim majority of Florida voters don't think he deserves a second term in the White House.
A new Quinnipiac University survey finds 51 percent of likely voters in the key battleground state say Obama shouldn't be re-elected next year. That's a slight uptick from a poll conducted in February, when 48 percent of likely voters said Obama didn't deserve a second term.
Indeed, Obama's poll numbers in the state are pretty bad all around. According to Quinnipiac, 52 percent of likely voters disapprove of the job Obama is doing. Meanwhile, voters are split on whether they would rather see a Republican in the White House: 41 percent say they'd choose the GOP candidate over Obama, compared to 38 percent who wouldn't.
Still, there are some glimmers of hope for Obama. In numbers that reflect polling nationally, a majority of Florida voters suggest they like the president personally, even if they don't like his policies. That's a theme that Obama is likely to play up as he gears up for what his aides acknowledge will be a tough re-election campaign.
