TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – A majority of Florida voters don’t like the way President Barack Obama is handling his job and even even more oppose a proposed nuclear deal with Iran, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll indicates that 41 percent of Florida voters approve of the way Obama is handling his job, while 56 percent disapprove.
Twenty five percent said they support the Obama administration’s proposed deal that seeks to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, while 61 percent oppose it. The deal, in part, includes lifting economic sanctions against Iran.
The Connecticut-based Quinnipiac also polled voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania and received similar results on questions about Obama’s favorability and the Iran deal.
In Florida, Quinnipiac polled 1,093 voters. The poll had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
