Poll Watch: Rasmussen Florida 2012 Presidential Survey

  • Barack Obama 47%
  • Rick Santorum 46%
  • Some other candidate 4%
  • Undecided 4%
  • Barack Obama 47% (42%)
  • Mitt Romney 44% (46%)
  • Some other candidate 5%
  • Undecided 3%
Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted February 9, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.  Results from the poll conducted November 17, 2011 are in parentheses.
Inside the numbers:
Both Republicans draw roughly 60% of the vote from men in Florida, while 57% of women support the president in both match ups. Most married voters like the Republicans; the majority of unmarrieds prefer the president.

Florida voters not affiliated with either major political party give the president double-digit leads against both Republicans.

Just 31% of Florida voters believe the government bailouts were good for the United States, while 52% view them as bad for the country. These sentiments are only slightly less critical of the bailouts than results measured nationwide.

Obama earns over 80% support against both Republicans from voters who see the bailouts as a good move. Among those who regard the bailouts as a bad idea, 66% support Romney and 67% Santorum when pitted against the president.

Romney is viewed favorably by 51% of Florida voters, Santorum by 50%.

Forty-eight percent (48%) at least somewhat approve of Obama’s job performance, with 28% who Strongly Approve.
