Quinnipiac University Poll: Voters In Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania Oppose Iran Nuke Deal 2-1

By Quinnipiac University, Aug. 24, 2015

President Barack Obama gets a split decision as voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania support his proposal to limit pollution from coal-fired energy plants by more than 2-1, while they oppose the proposed nuclear pact with Iran by margins of more than 2-1, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today.

President Obama remains under water with negative approval ratings of 41 - 56 percent in Florida, 42 - 54 percent in Ohio and 41 - 56 percent in Pennsylvania, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. The Swing State Poll focuses on Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania because since 1960 no candidate has won the presidential race without taking at least two of these three states.

By margins of 71 - 26 percent in Florida, 72 - 26 percent in Ohio and 74 - 24 percent in Pennsylvania, voters do not want four more years of Obama. 

On other hot-button issues:

Voters in each state oppose efforts to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood;
Majorities in all three states support allowing illegal immigrants to stay, with a path to citizenship;
Majorities in each state support sending U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
"Despite President Barack Obama's poor job approval rating in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, voters back his Environmental Protection Agency's plan to limit emissions from coal-fired power plants," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
