NEW Q Poll: Obama +7, Scott still underwater


Key points in Q Poll:

Pres. Obama Up Seven

  • Obama leads Romney by 7 points in Florida — 49 to 42 percent. If the election were held today, Obama would win the state.
  • Women fueled the president's rise, backing "the President over Romney or Santorum by 6 to 19 percentage points in the three states"
  • Florida voters blame oil companies for the high gas prices, and oppose releasing oil from the strategic petroleum reserve.

Rick Scott Still Underwater

  • This explains the RPOF ads two years out from an election: Florida voters continue to disapprove, 52 - 36 percent, of the job Gov. Rick Scott is doing.
