Poll: Obama faces steep climb in Florida

President Obama’s top re-election campaign strategists say winning Florida in November would be the “easiest way” to the 270 electoral votes needed to clinch a second term.

But winning Florida itself is shaping up to be anything but easy, as a new Quinnipiac University poll shows.

Fifty-four percent of registered Florida voters disapprove of Obama, well above the national average, while 52 percent say he does not deserve a second term.
