Barack Obama Approval Rating Drops to 28% in Arizona … Illegal Immigration an Obama Winner


28% approval rating in Arizona and falling …

In 2008 election Barack Obama lost the state of Arizona to John McCain 54% to 45% on his way to becoming President of the United States. McCain won his home state by only 9%. Also three months after taking office, 51 percent of Arizonans gave Obama positive ratings. That was then this is now …

One year into the Obama presidency and his approval rating in Arizona was down to 40%. Now, for the polling period between June 30 and July 11 a Behavior Research Poll states the following, only 28% of Arizonans were willing to say they like the job Barack Hussein Obama is doing.

Only 52% of Democrats give Obama a positive rating. Only 22% of independents and 8% of Republicans now score his performance as excellent or good. Obviously Obama’s lack of protection of the US-Mexican border is a huge issue in Arizona and will be the case with all border states.

But the survey also was taken about the time it became clear that the Department of Justice, asked to look at Arizona’s new immigration law, intended to file suit. In fact, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in an interview with a television station in Ecuador, spilled the beans early in June.

That all became official when the Obama administration went to federal court on July 6 – right in the middle of the polling – asking a judge to block the statute from taking effect as scheduled July 26.

The law, which spells out when police have to ask those they have stopped about their immigration status, is popular in Arizona, with every single survey showing it’s backed by more than half of residents.

Obama maintains his popularity with Democrats, 52 percent of whom still have a positive assessment of his work. Still, that’s down from 85 percent in April 2009.

His positive rating among independents, which was 54 percent in that first post-election survey, now has dropped to 22 percent. And 8 percent of Republicans now score his performance as excellent or good.

It’s the dirty little secret that Obama and Democrats do not want to admit … illegal immigration is a huge issue in the 2010 and 2012 elections and might just be the final deciding factor that gets Democrats thrown out of power.

      We have struggled and a lot of people have died to obtain, sustain a certain way of life. Laws were set up to help legal immigrants become a part of this great nation. If you come hear illegally you have no desire to acheive the original american dream so come here legally and make it better for everybody.

      Why the “F” is that so hard for liberals to understand?

      Side note, when these communities want to recover from being drained by illegal occupation, they should try free market priniples to get back to civilization.
