Things in Florida aren't looking good for President Obama. In 2008, Obama received 52 percent of the independent vote, but now, a whopping 61% of voters disapprove of his job performance.
According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, just 33 percent of Florida's independent voters approve of the job the president is doing. A whopping 61 percent disapprove of his performance.
Justin Sayfie, political consultant and author of the Sayfie Review says the Sunshine State's independent voters are worried not only about the economy, but also the president's leadership.
Republican candidates will have a chance to woo Florida voters in Thursday's GOP presidential debate in Orlando. Florida's Republican Party Communications Director Brian Hughes even speculated that the winner of the 'Presidency 5' Florida straw poll will be the 2012 GOP nominee.
Given the make up of Florida's electorate, independent voters will make all the difference. Democrats make up 41 percent of the state's registered voters, Republicans account for 36 percent. Nearly a quarter of Florida's voters have elected not to register with either party.
