Obama’s Poll Numbers Plummet in California

Posted by on Dec 03, 2013 at 7:48 am

Who knows, maybe they’re just sick of him showing up every few weeks for fundraisers, but it’s probably much deeper than that. The fact ObamaCare is a clusterfuck of epic proportions may have something to do with it. Remarkably, he’s managed to stay above 50%, but just barely.

 Even in deep blue California, disapproval of Democratic President Barack Obama is rising and voters are souring on the country’s prospects, according to a new Field Poll.

Although 51 percent of California voters approve of the president’s performance, 43 percent disapprove, an increase of 8 percentage points since July.

At the time, a larger share of voters reported having “no opinion.” In a period marked by the federal government shutdown and the troubled launch of the new federal health care system, many of the undecideds appear to have shifted into the disapproval camp.

The survey also shows a dramatic worsening in voters’ views on the direction of the country: 33 percent believe the U.S. is moving in the right direction, while 55 percent feel it is on the wrong track. In February, 48 percent felt the country was turning a corner and 44 percent said it was heading the wrong way.

The economy and foreign policy – matters of grave importance to the nation – typically tend to sway voters’ views, said Mark DiCamillo, director of the poll. The latest survey shows a large swing at a time of relative stability on economic and foreign policy issues.

“To me this is a much more deflating reflection of how people view the leadership of Obama,” DiCamillo said. “At the beginning of the year, after his re-election, they felt great. They are not feeling that way anymore. They think the country is moving in the wrong direction even with their Democrat in the White House.”

Of course some people you just can’t reach:

“When he came into office, the economy was really a mess,” said Democrat Marcelina Luera, 62, of Livingston. “It takes a long time to produce, and I think he’s done a job of trying to turn things around.”

Luera said she continues to back the president on the health law even as she and her husband expect to pay about $80 more a month for health insurance.

“No matter what this president does, if they don’t like him, they are going to find something to knock him about,” she added.

Wait until she finds out that $80 increase per month is likely tripled.

    willful ignorance. Blind by choice. Obomabots will never admit that their lord and savior, mixed race barry soetero obomba (who had a WHITE mother, and raised by her WHITE parents in elitist prep schools) lied to them.

    No one is as stupid by choice as the cultist obombabots. Obomba is their Golden Calf.

    It is also a mortal sin to worship false idols — obombabots.

    Let’s hope that the complete collapse of Obamacare will change Californian’s belief in big government idiocy.

    Nah, won’t happen.

    It’s a shame, because California really is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

    As a lifelong Cali resident I can tell you firsthand that whatever President Liar does, it will not fade the worship held by the majority of residents here.

    You see, President Petulant is only a figurehead in their quest for leftist utopia.

    As it has always been in the past, they will shift their idol worship to the next loser they believe embodies their dreams. Because “it’s not the system/goals that are the problem, it’s the person who was trying to implement the policies that became the problem.”

    It’s all so predictable.

    “at a time of relative stability on economic and foreign policy issues.”

    Yeah, they are both relatively “stable”; stuck in a state of:

    “This really, really sucks.”

    “It takes a long time to produce, and I think he’s done a job of trying to turn things around.”

    The current “recovery” is the worst since WW2, but this numbskull from some Central Valley backwater thinks he’s doing a bang-up job. Just goes to show you that a lot of the people I’m surrounded by are just plain stupid.
