Skip to comments.Gallup: Obama Negative Ratings in 37 states, But King of DC
Posted on 08/04/2012 10:28:24 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
Gallup has just released Barack Obamas job approval rating for the first half of 2012, broken down by state, and the news is not encouraging for the president.
Obamas approval rating is below 50 percent in 37 states, ranging from a 26 percent rating in Utah to a 49 percent rating in Michigan. Obama is at 50 percent or higher in just 13 states, from a 50 percent rating in Minnesota to a 63 percent rating in Hawaii. The president is most popular in Washington DC, where his job approval rating is an astonishing 83 percent.

Truth be told, Carter was never ahead. It was the DNCp doing what they do. You’ll never convince me that people all of a sudden woke up one morning and had an epiphany. People despised Carter. He was a limp wristed cardigan wearing milk toast, that actually had the sheer stupidity to sit there in the White House and tell us the glory days of the U. S. were over.
Were people better off today, than they were four years prior? No
The DNCp are at it again today. The results will be the same. The Pres—ent Resident is going down. Way down!
Are people better off today, than they were four years ago? No
Same result, a blow out...
Sadly, once again it will telegraph that the RNC can successfully get RINOs elected to office. And that’s just what they’ll do as long as they can.
To hell with our values.
Richard Pryor approved of it being called “D.C. - Dark Country”.
“This election reminds of 1980 when Carter actually led Reagan by a few points the majority of the year, then was blown away in a landslide.”
Reagan blew Carter away because they finally debated a week before the election and Reagan destroyed Carter in it. At the end Reagan told voters to ask themselves if they were better off than four years ago and said if you weren’t, your choice for President should be obvious. It turned the whole thing around.
Carter may have won had he not debated Reagan. His pollster Pat Caldell said on the eve of the debate he had Carter up by 3, then 3 days later Carter was down by 10.
Reagan had the personality and communication skills necessary to turn that election around......Mitt Romney does not. If Romney wins, he will barely sneak by. But I fully expect similar results of 2008 with maybe a bit larger margin of victory of 0bama, 55% to 44% with 0bama winning all the same states as in 2008 and possibly adding Missouri and maybe even Georgia. The people are just to dependent on government assistance to let him go.
Very good news
Because the states that don't hate him have large populations of libs (CA, NY).
“My daughter says that she doesnt know anyone who is voting for Obama in So. CA.”
I live in So Cal (eastern LA County) and it is more Conservative here than people think.
Outside of LA proper and crappy suburbs right out side of it (East LA, Maywood, Bell, South Gate, Lynwood, etc.), you have a lot of Conservatives here. Eastern LA County, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, Ventura, Kern, San Luis Obispo and San Diego counties are typically red, with the Republicans pulling in 53% - 57% of the vote on a regular basis. Santa Barbara county is pretty much a swing county with neither side usually winning more the 52 or 53% of the vote.
It’s those large Nor Cal counties that make this state deep blue. San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa and Solono counties are bluer than blue where Democrats never get fewer than 65% of the vote and sometimes over 80%. The people up there are loonier than those in the North East!
Nor Cal screws So Cal badly. All the big name elected Democrats in this state are ‘northerners”. Moonbeam, Fienstien, Boxer, Gavin Newsome, Bill and Nadia Lockyer, Gray Davis are all from the north.
If CA became two states like the Carolina’s or the Dakota’s, it’d be a red state.
The same city that reelected Marion Barry after he got out of jail for smoking crack with a prostitute/informant. How unexpected.
My daughter lives in So Cal, but her friends mostly live in LA and San Francisco. Yuppies, would be about the best description, I would say. Economically, they are across the full spectrum, from very wealthy to struggling.
Uhhhhhh about 55% rat. Candizce Anderson (R) just won a county supervisor seat and Bill Baker (R) has held the 10th Congressional district seat which is part of the County.
I live in northern Santa Clara County and commute 8 miles each way on El Camino and CA-237. I see at most ONE Obama bumper sticker per day and it’s often 2 or 3 days between spotting one. Our neighbors two doors down have on on their car and in the window of their house. I don’t want to get prematurely optimistic, but this sure isn’t like 2008.
With Obama at 52 percent in California, if that sinks lower it is not impossible for Obama to lose, especially if some of the Obamacons stay home because they are disappointed with him.
“Sadly, once again it will telegraph that the RNC can successfully get RINOs elected to office. And thats just what theyll do as long as they can.”
So, don’t vote for Romney - simple as that. Support someone who actually does support your values like Virgil Goode. That’s what I’m doing.
Your assumptions indicate no voter remorse, something known to be present.
States (electoral votes) won by Obama with less than 5% margin: Florida (27), Ohio(20), North Carolina(15), Indiana(11)
States (electoral votes) won by McCain with less than 5% margin: Missouri(11), Montana(3)
“Everyone in DC is on the Bank of Washington payroll.”
That is good an so true.
Then you are voting to give Barack Obama another 4 years.
With all due respect SCREW VIRGIL GOODE!
Screw Virgil Goode?
Fine, then. Go on and win without me. Romney said he didn’t need the votes of prolifers. Good luck.
McGovern was big in DC too...
Unprecedented. Never saw that one coming. /s
Sounds like your daughters friends received barry’s big whoop in the butt “hope & change”.....just not exactly what they were expecting, lol.
