Obama weak; Florida race tight in new poll

The Tampa Bay Times, Miami Herald and Bay News 9 have a poll out today that shows the state perched on a knife's edge, with Obama at 46 percent and Mitt Romney at 45 percent:
Dig into the numbers, and what's most surprising is that Obama is at all competitive with Romney:
• 54 percent of likely Florida voters say the country is on the "wrong track" with Obama at the helm.
• Only 35 percent believe his policies have improved the economy, while 41 percent say they have made it worse.
• 46 percent of voters approve of the president's job performance, while 50 percent disapprove.
• 52 percent oppose the health care overhaul — Obama's signature achievement recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court — and 50 percent of Florida voters want to see it repealed.
