TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A new poll shows President Barack Obama is losing support in Florida and wasn't helped by the recent battle over raising the nation's debt ceiling.

Fifty percent of voters surveyed randomly by telephone from July 27-Aug. 2 by Quinnipiac University said Obama would not deserve re-election if the election were held today. However, Mitt Romney was the only announced Republican candidate with enough support in the poll to give Obama a strong challenge. Both were favored by 44 percent of those questioned.

Obama's job approval rating in Florida was 44 percent compared to 51 percent who disapproved, a sharp drop from a 51-43 favorable rating he enjoyed in a May survey by Quinnipiac. The margin of error in the survey of 1,417 voters was plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
