In a potential Republican Primary, Bush leads the pack with 22 percent. Rubio gets 18 percent. 

Fifty-six percent of Florida voters believe Clinton would make a good president. About 45 percent of voters think Bush or Christie would also make a good president, though Bush’s disapproval ratings are higher. 

Florida, with its all-important 29 electoral votes, is a major battleground state in presidential elections. 

Obama won Florida in his last two presidential elections, but the state picked President George W. Bush in 2004 and 2000, when a recount in the state decided the election and ended up in the Supreme Court.

Obama’s approval rating in the state mirrors national polling, with 40 percent approving of his job performance.  

The poll surveyed 1,646 registered Florida voters and holds a 2.4 percentage point margin of error.
