TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Despite carrying Florida in 2008 and 2012 U.S. Presidential elections, a new poll shows President Barack Obama facing serious opposition Sunshine State — and there could be consequences in the gubernatorial race, expected to be one of the nation’s political main events come November. 

According to the poll from McLaughlin and Associates a majority of likely voters — 53 percent — disapprove of Obama, while 43 percent approve of him. The poll finds Obama’s poor standing can impact the Florida gubernatorial race because only 39 percent say they want a governor cut from Obama’s mold while 50 percent would rather see a Republican governor push back against the White House.
