Quinnipiac University Poll: Barack Obama Approval Ratings Drop in Ohio Swing State … I Sense a Trend


Change America Can Believe In …

Barack Obama, The Chosen One is finding it much harder to be President than candidate Obama_inexperiencedObama.

According to a recent Quinnipiac University Poll, Obama’s approval numbers have dropped considerably in Ohio. The all important Buckeye swing state now shows that The One’s approval ratings at at 49% – 44%. People elected Obama to see promised results. Not excuses that they misread the economy, spinning like they had incorrect data or blaming previous administrations.

Obama’s job as President is to be the Leader and the Commander & Chief. The buck stops with him and weather he inherited or made matters worse, it’s his gig now. It would appear Americans are already growing wearing and skeptical of Obama’s campaign promises. The fact of the matter is that Obama has not made any advances in the economy, job growth or foreign policy since he has been in office except to make apologies.

President Barack Obama gets a lackluster 49 – 44 percent approval rating in Ohio, considered by many to be the most important swing state in a presidential election, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. This is President Obama’s lowest approval rating in any national or statewide Quinnipiac University poll since he was inaugurated and is down from 62 – 31 percent in a May 6 survey.

By a small 48 – 46 percent margin, voters disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. This is down from a 57 – 36 percent approval May 6. A total of 66 percent of Ohio voters are “somewhat dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied” with the way things are going in the state, while 33 percent are “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied,” numbers that haven’t changed since Obama was elected.

The PoliGazette provides even more polling that shows Obama’s numbers are dropping nationwide.

The 2012 Presidential elections might just be about change as well, Obama changing addresses.

      As the pink slips mount, along with the excuses, Obambi will sink even further. It will finally be apparent as to what the ‘Subtle Fascist’ has tried to turn the country into.

      …couple that with this nugget from USA Today newspaper:

      “When it comes to a potential presidential run, the USA TODAY Poll displays Palin’s strength in the Republican base and weakness among swing voters, who traditionally decide national elections. Republicans by 71%-27% say they’d be likely to vote for her if she ran for president in 2012, while independents by 51%-44% would not.”

      Full story here:


      By the way, one can expect to have the ranks of voting Republicans SWELL exponentially by 2010 and 2012, if they proceed in an intelligent manner and have a comprehensive platform to present the American voting public(which they very well may have sooner than later)

      yes, even his own people are turning against him daily. buyers’ remorse has definitely set in

      Waiting for the liberals or people that do not belong in an American political discussion about OUR economy to say “polls schmolls….” LOFL!

      I don’t feel sorry for Ohioians and Pennsyvalnians at ALL. They voted for this idiot and believed he was not going to basically shut down COAL plants in their respective states, but CAP and TRADE WILL do exactly that…. you think those states are struggling now? HA…if CAP and TRADE passes; look out…

      Does he actually believe taxing the rich will generte enough revenue to cover for all his trillions and his second stimulus? A perfect example is the state I live in; Maryland. They starting taxing the highest earners (the millionaires) and Maryland received a dramastic drop in revenue AND they are leaving the state in droves just like California. My state is sh*t too; but the county I live in is very conservative (down along the Chesapeake Bay)!

      Perhaps the concept of an Obama dictatorship will be more clear with this:

      H.J.Res.5 Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. (111th Congress)
      H.J. Res. 5 – Repealing 22nd Amendment
      You have not heard this on the mainstream media, but that doesn’t mean anything. This bill was referred to the House Committee on Judiciary on 1/6/09 and then referred to the Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties on 2/9/09.
      (Check it out on the government websites listed below.)
      House Considers Repealing 22nd Amendment

      Earlier this year, Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y. introduced H. J. Res. 5, a bill that would repeal the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment which prohibits a president from being elected to more than two terms in office, thus potentially paving the way to make Barack Obama president for life. Not surprisingly, the corporate media currently caught up in Obama-mania has not covered this story.

      “Will George W. Bush end up being the last true U.S. President?” asked Sher Zieve, writing for the Canadian Free Press on January 14. ” As I warned you on multiple times prior to the 2008 General Election,

      ‘Once Obama is elected, we won’t be able to get rid of him.’ Tragically, this warning is now being realized. Not only has Obama established his election-fraud organization ACORN nationwide, his adherents have now begun the process to Repeal the U.S. Constitution’s 22nd Amendment.”

      See all these websites.

      Obama’s honeymoon period is coming to a close. He is no different from a king.

    8. Dolf on July 8th, 2009 3:25 pm

      @6: I find you to be a insult to the ppl who served and died on the USS Yorktown

      When a political party manages to buy enough votes via government giveaways, what can the populace expect, but broken promises and a country that basically fails. All this stimulus money is a payoff to ACORN and the union bosses that go him elected. There is never something for nothing and our young people as a whole who do not have enough experience to know how the world really works, bought into his mantra of “Change” hook line and sinker.
      We are in trouble. Unless “we THE PEOPLE” can clean out the mess in Washington, we will become a third level nation.

      where do you think you live..Venezuela?

    11. Dolf on July 8th, 2009 4:02 pm

      just think the same we did with the Bush admin.

      8 years tops

    12. cara on July 8th, 2009 7:43 pm

      now, those people who voted for this ((edit))of a man will realize that he is not “the one” as one black woman suggest. He has no capacity to run this govt. I watch your elections in my country (the philippines) where our corrupt military installed a housewife who has no experience running a country. Because of that our country suffer much worse faith. They call her “heaven sent” by her followers but what happen. Until now my country is still in worse strait. I saw the same similarity. Now you will suffer for this/

    13. nurturer on July 8th, 2009 10:20 pm

      #10 – No. Nor do I want to. That’s why vigilance here is important.

    14. josephq on July 8th, 2009 11:28 pm

      Obama will be another Carter. He spends more time in other countries than our own. Ohioan never wanted him to begin with. Hillary won Ohio but we felt we would give him a chance. This state is hurting. Go to any small town and see all the businesses closed. There are so many homes in foreclosure it is not funny. And now they are canceling Oktoberfest. That stimulus is a gift to those liberals who helped him get elected.

    15. Scott on July 9th, 2009 6:19 am

      There goes Dolf again with the “we” talk as if he is an American; shoo away fly.

      Anyone catch the picture of the blogger from the Huffington Post that made that comment about Palin and retarded people?

      Is that yoyo? caesu? jack hammer? Folks that is your typical liberal NERD outcast LOSER that post here!

    16. Dolf on July 9th, 2009 9:27 am

      Scott, I notice that you haven’t signed up for the reading class.

      a) you know I am not a US citizen.
      b) You know I am Dutch.
      c) so who might the we be……….

      Biblespice will get eaten alive by her own party – she’ll never make out of the New Hampshire primary.

      To quote Biblespice:
      “Fair or unfair, I think she does herself a disservice to even mention it. You gotta to plow through that. You have to know what you’re getting into — which, I say this with all due respect to Hillary Clinton, and to her experience and to her passion for changing the status quo also — but when I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism or you know maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, ‘man that doesn’t do us any good’ — women in politics, women in general wanting to progress this country, I don’t think it bodes well for her, a statement like that. Because, again, fair or unfair, it is there, I think that’s reality, and I think it’s a given. I think people can just accept that she is going to be under the sharper microscope. So be it. I mean, work harder, prove yourself to an even greater degree that you’re capable, that you’re going to be the best candidate, and that of course is what she wants us to believe at this point. So it bothers me a little bit hearing her bring that attention to herself on that level.”

      Or just quit, like Biblespice did. Lol.
