Hard to fathom in a city of drunken sailors that Santa would be the most popular guy. Outside of DC he’s above water in a total of 12 states. Most of you could name them pretty quickly. Think failed liberal states and go from there. In the rest of the nation he’s widely despised, coming in with a pitiful 22.5 approval in Wyoming, with West Virginia not far behind in their contempt.
Residents of Washington, D.C., and Hawaii were the most approving of President Obama last year, a new poll indicates.
More than 80 percent of Washingtonians approved of Obama’s job in 2013 and 61.3 percent of Hawaiians said the same, according to a Gallup poll released Monday.
Obama was born in Hawaii and partially grew up there; he often visits the state during holiday vacations.
People living in Wyoming and West Virginia were the least approving of the president, giving him 22.5 percent and 25.1 percent approval ratings, respectively.
In addition to the District, 11 states, including Hawaii, gave Obama an approval rating of more 50 percent. The others are Maryland, Rhode Island, New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, New Jersey, California, Connecticut, Delaware and Illinois.
The highest ratings largely come from Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states while Obama’s lowest come from the Mountain West and areas in the South.
This is what we call ugly, or in a nod to Obama’s latest manufactured crisis, approval inequality.
