So much failure he threatens to drag his party down with him. Heckuva job, Barry!
Only 38 percent of voters approve of President Obama in Iowa, according to a new poll.
Quinnipiac recorded Obama’s lowest approval rating in the state during a poll released Wednesday. Another 59 percent of voters in the state disapprove of his job performance.
That’s a 21-point negative difference for all you low-information Obama voters.
And nearly one in three voters say Obama will affect their vote in the state’s Senate race next year. Longtime Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) is retiring.
Obama won the state with 52 percent of the vote over Mitt Romney in last year’s presidential election.
He also won the state’s first in the nation caucus in 2008 — which was a pivotal moment in his first presidential campaign — and was uncontested in 2012.
Only 31 percent of independents approve of Obama, while 62 percent disapprove. A full 97 percent of Republicans disapprove of him, while 82 percent of Democrats approve.
Independents, or haters as they’re now known, are abandoning him in droves nationwide. So expect them to try and jumpstart contrived, phony issues like the so-called War on Women. But with a tidal wave a bad news stemming from ObamaCare and a moribund economy there’s likely no turning back. Once 2014 hits and millions find themselves suddenly uninsured thanks to Obama he may be lucky to have a 25% approval anywhere.
From the Q poll link:
“President Barack Obama twice carried Iowa and it was the Iowa Caucuses which began his march to the presidency, but if he were on the ballot here today he would be toast,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
“And, his overwhelmingly negative job approval – including thumbs down from 15 percent of Democrats and 62 percent of independent voters – could be having an impact on the prospects for Iowa Democrats who do face the voters in 2014,” Brown added.
