Who knew that CBS poll showing the failed president at 37% approval would be his high mark of the day? It’s getting worse by the hour. This one is chock full of good news for the GOP across the board in a purple state that had been trending Democrat for some time but has since swung back strongly in favor of the GOP, especially since the rebellion against the gun grabbers resulted in two recent recalls.
This poll is also ominous for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and looks great for Chris Christie.
In an early look at the 2016 race for the White House, New Jersey Republican Gov. Christopher Christie tops former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 46 – 38 percent in Colorado, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
This compares to results of an August 23 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University, showing Gov. Christie with 43 percent and Secretary Clinton at 42 percent, a tie.
In today’s survey, Clinton runs neck and with other possible Republican candidates;
Clinton at 44 percent to 47 percent for U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky;
Clinton and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas tied at 44 – 44 percent;
Clinton at 43 percent to 45 percent for U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.
Remind us again how unpopular Ted Cruz is.
As for Obama:
Colorado voters disapprove 59 – 36 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his worst approval rating in any state or national Quinnipiac University poll since he was elected. Even women disapprove by 52 – 41 percent, while men disapprove 66 – 31 percent. Disapproval is 98 – 2 percent among Republicans and 65 – 27 percent among independent voters, while Democrats approve 78 – 15 parent.
“President Barack Obama hits the rocks in the Rockies,” Malloy said. “Republicans are singing, ‘Rocky Mountain low, Obama’s in the snow.'”‘
