in the most recent weekly Gallup average, Obama had fallen to 42 percent. That decline is reflected in some more recent state polls showing Obama in a more vulnerable position than the Gallup findings, for instance Quinnipiac University surveys in Florida and Pennsylvania.OBAMA IS LOSING BLUE COLLAR WHITE MEN BY THE DROVES.
If Obama’s national approval rating next fall remains around its current 42 percent, it’s almost inconceivable that he could win enough states to assemble an Electoral College majority.
... the sharpest declines have come in states that Obama won last time, including New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Mexico, and Nevada.
... Obama retains an approval rating of 50 percent or greater in 15 of the 18 “blue-wall” states that have voted Democratic in at least the past five consecutive presidential elections, plus the District of Columbia which has also backed Democrats that reliably. Those bricks in the blue wall are the only states in which Obama’s approval rating reaches the 50 percent level...
... North Carolina, which Obama carried by only about 14,000 votes, again divides almost exactly in half, with Obama’s approval rating at 46.2 and his disapproval at 46.1.
... Obama’s situation looks more precarious in several states that he won last time. In addition to Oregon, his approval rating now trails his disapproval rating in New Hampshire (where just 40 percent approve), Indiana (42 percent), Colorado and Nevada (44 percent), Ohio (45 percent), New Mexico, and Virginia (each 46 percent).
THIS MEANS HE WILL HAVE A HARD TIME WINNING IN MICHIGAN, OHIO, AND PENNSYLVANIA.
HE COULD ALSO LOSE VIRGINIA.
SINCE THE ECONOMY IS NOW UNLIKELY TO REBOUND SUFFICIENTLY TO LOWER UNEMPLOYMENT, IT SEEMS UNLIKELY THAT OBAMA CAN WIN.
I JUST HOPE WE SURVIVE UNTIL THE ELECTION!
AND WE NOMINATE A DECENT AND CONSERVATIVE PERSON TO RUN AGAINST HIM.
