Another poll shows that economic issues are hurting Barack Obama's chances at re-election, and possibly creating an opening for Mitt Romney.
The Sunshine State News Poll shows that Obama's disapproval rating in that swing state is sitting at 54%. In a hypothetical 2012 matchup, Romney leads Obama 46%-42%. Jim Lee of Voter Survey Service, which conducted the poll, says:
"Romney is clearly running as the 'most qualified' candidate to get the economy back on track, while candidates like Michele Bachmann and others are talking more about issues that play to the tea party base -- spending, deficits, not raising the debt limit, etc.
"Romney wins Republicans 74-14, while Democrats are voting for Obama 71-20, but independents are still up for grabs, with Romney leading 42-38," Lee reported.
