However, 37 percent say Romney's economic policies would hurt them more than they help. Twenty-six percent say they would help, while 34 percent saw no difference. And in Ohio, 51 percent of voters would like to see more of Romney's tax returns an issue that has dogged him on the trail.

The poll found wide support for Obama's proposal across all three states. Obama's tax plan is supported 58 percent to 37 percent in Florida, 60 percent to 37 percent in Ohio and 62 percent to 34 percent in Pennsylvania.
