Winter Springs, Florida (PRWEB) March 05, 2015 There are many states in the union that do not stand on equal political ground, yet that is not true for the Southern States from Florida to South Carolina. Proximity is not the only thing that they have in common. When polled, Republicans agreed both on the current failings of the Obama administration & who the front runners for the 2016 race will be. It is no surprise that conservative voters in both Florida & South Carolina were in agreement that the current state of affairs in America is nothing short of utter disappointment. Over 79% & 82% of Republicans in the latest series of Gravis Marketing political polls polled in Florida & South Carolina respectively reported disapproving of the Obama regime. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of President Obama’s job performance?”, the answer was almost unanimous with only 16% & 11% of Republicans stating that they approved of the job that Obama was doing. Both polls were conducted using one of the most reliable measures of automated IVR telephone polling software with just a 5% margin of error. The poll was carried out by one of the most established political polling entities Gravis Insights, which is a division of Gravis Marketing & provides political campaign services & a virtual predictive dialer.
