DescriptionPresident Obama's approval rating jumped seven points over the last month in the key swing state of Florida, a poll released Thursday showed.

Fifty-one percent of registered voters in the Sunshine State approve of the way Obama is handling his job, while 43 percent disapprove. That's a complete reversal from April, when his approval rating stood at 44-52 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

Obama's position against a generic Republican also improved. He leads a hypothetical GOP opponent 44-38 percent this month after trailing 38-41 percent in April. Fifty percent also said the president deserves to be reelected, up eight points.

The poll shows Obama in a strengthened position in a state that will play a major role in the 2012 presidential election.
