    Mitt Romney has taken a 6-point lead over President Barack Obama in the battleground state of Florida.

    A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found Romney now besting Obama 47 percent to 41 percent among likely Florida voters. That's a shift from earlier this month, when a Quinnipiac poll found Romney and Obama statistically tied in the state. In March, Obama led Romney 49 to 42 percent in the Sunshine State.

    Romney's improved standing in the state is in part due to voter angst over Obama's job performance. Just 45 percent of Florida voters view the president favorably, compared to 50 percent who see him negatively. Fifty-two percent of Florida voters disapprove of the job Obama is doing in the White House. An equal number say the president doesn't deserve a second term in office.
