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.

Everyone in DC is on the “Bank of Washington” payroll.
Exactly and that is the ONLY reason why the Kenyan is King in the District of Corruption.
I really hope you’re right. America can’t survive another four years of Obama.
More than that....those that actually reside in DC and vote there are largely African Americans. The city is full of young interns and government workers too, but vote in their home state. As far as lifetime government workers...they largely migrate to N. VA or MD.
You can add race into that. DC is mainly black. The richies do not live in downtown DC so much. They are all in Virginia or Maryland or the rich enclaves.
I’m more concerned about the projected electoral college count. Geographically, a really large number of states could go for Romney, but he will still lose if the big electoral college states go against him. Anybody know where I might find a chart or something on that?
Just shows you why no one in DC should be allowed to vote.
The following states are SURE to go Obama ( and maybe no more than that ) — NY, MA, DE, NJ, CT, Maine, VT, RI, HI, CA, Washington, Oregon, Illinois and finally, DC.
3 out of 4 states hate this bastard. And he is still poised to win?
As Clinton's pollster, Dick Morris conducted a study prior to the 1996 election to determine whether Clinton -- a minority president -- could lose the Electoral Vote with a numerical majority of the total vote (a la Gore in 2000).
Morris concluded that, from a practical standpoint, it was statistically impossible to lose the EV if you gathered 51-and-a-fraction percent of the total vote.
Reason is: States that are considered "unwinnable" will still produce results that are reasonably close (say, 55/45 -- which, from an electoral standpoint, is considered "a landslide")
Interesting how your list of Obama states pretty much lines up with the ones in deep squatting financial doo-doo.
Read in the WSJ today that CA, NY, and IL are now taking out loans against tax revenues that won’t come in for YEARS in the future.
America won’t survive if we have another 4 years of Obama. We not only have to get rid of Obama, but take back the Senate and keep control of the house
I think that people may be surprised about the lack of support that Obama has even in CA.
My daughter says that she doesn’t know anyone who is voting for Obama in So. CA. All her friends are die hard libs and not a single one are sticking with Obama. I mean these people were such big Obama fans that my daughter gave me strict orders not to discuss politics around her friends, not to even make a single anti-Obama remark and now she says they are all disgusted. This isn’t what they expected.
These people are typical young adults, who are not really into politics and voted Democrats because it was the cool thing to do. Republicans were old, stogy, greedy and boring. Now, they don’t particularly care for Mitt Romney, but they are voting Anyone but Obama.
Who's loaning them money??!!
My guess is they’re betting on an Obama win in November followed by a decree allowing all states that went for Baraq in 2012 to be able to issue federally guaranteed state bonds.
Nothing wrong with CA, IL, and NY that a couple trillion Baraqqi/Bernanke/Geithner minibucks can’t fix.
The crooks in DC can have him.
