Florida likes Obama, bailouts not so much

President Barack Obama receives approval from 60 percent of Florida voters, according to a Suffolk University/7NEWS polls, though the same percentage disapprove of the bailouts awarded to some financial institutions and auto companies.

"Voters acknowledge that stimulus packages and bigger government are a necessary economic fix for the short term, even though they disapprove,'' said David Paleologos, director of the Political Research Center at Suffolk University in Boston. "But if Barack Obama's administration calls for bigger government and stimulus solutions for all problems, his favorability may decline in the long term.''

The polls was conducted April 26-28 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent. More here.
