Very bad news for President Obama, who won Florida in 2008:

All Florida voters disapprove 57 – 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his worst score in any Quinnipiac University poll in any state.

In possible 2012 presidential matchups, Romney tops the president 47 – 40 percent while Perry gets 42 percent to Obama’s 44 percent, a dead heat. In the August 4 Florida poll, Romney and Obama were deadlocked 44 – 44 percent while the president led Perry 44 – 39 percent.

Obama does not deserve a second term, Florida voters say 53 – 41 percent.

Perry leads Romney among the GOP field, 28-22. Perry’s “Ponzi scheme” rhetoric on Social Security, while accurate, has the potential to help him now and hurt him later.

Voters in Florida, with the nation’s highest concentration of senior citizens, say 58 – 33 percent that it is “unfair” to describe Social Security as a “Ponzi scheme,” as Perry has done. But among Republicans, the only ones allowed to vote in the state’s crucial primary, 52 percent say that is a fair way to describe the nation’s retirement system.

The GOP field debate in Florida tonight. PJ will cover it from the scene, with Stephen Green drunkblogging and live chat here at the Tatler.
