USF's School of Public Affairs has released the latest results of its annual Sunshine State Survey.  USF and Nielsen are asking how Floridians feel about a variety of issues.

USF Political Scientist Dr. Susan MacManus said Floridians believe the biggest threat to Florida's economy is unemployment. But they rated undocumented immigrants as the third biggest concern.

"Concerns about undocumented workers and residents is highest among Anglos, as well as other minorities, which would include Asians, as well as mixed races, and divorces and separated people," she said. "So, those are three groups that have the biggest concern about undocumented workers."

The survey results show Floridians are feeling more confident in the job market.
