Barack Obama in Serious Polling Trouble in Battle Ground State of Pennsylvania … 35% Job Approval


Key state battle ground polling troubles for Obama … looks like they cling to more than their “guns and Bibles”.

In the 2008 Presidential election, Barack Obama defeated John McCain in Pennsylvania 54.7% to 44.3%.  In April 2009, just after Barack Obama started as President and and just after the stimulus bill was passed, Obama was at 61% approval in the Keystone state. Now according to a recent Muhlenberg College poll released Friday,Obama has dropped to a 35% job approval rating among registered voters.  OUCH!!!

President Barack Obama, who political experts say will need a win in Pennsylvania to retain the White House, dipped to 35 percent approval among the state’s registered voters, according to a Muhlenberg College poll released Friday.

The results come on the heels of a bad week in polls for Obama that showed him first dropping to 39 percent nationwide in Gallup’s daily tracking poll. Then another set of Gallup results Thursday showed only 26 percent of Americans approve of how Obama is handling the economy.

The unemployment rate in PA is presently 9% and Pennsylvanians seem pessimistic about the economy.Once again Barack Obama is being bit by the terrible US economy and the fact that he has promised jobs and delivered nothing. Many in Pennsylvania believe that Obama’s policies have negatively affected the economy.

Asked if Obama’s policies have helped or hurt the economy, just 23 percent said helped, 41 percent said hurt and 32 percent said his policies haven’t made a difference.

Hot Air brings up some important voting registration demographic, as “Democrats enjoy a substantial registration advantage over Republicans, going well into double digits.” Earlier this month, a Quinnipiac poll had Obama with a 54% – 43%  disapproval among Pennsylvania voters.    There is no way that Barack Obama wins reelection if he loses Pennsylvania. However, Obama is going to have difficulty winning many states that he carried in 2008 like VA, NC, FL, OH, IN and NH.  A look into the 2012 election crystal ball will show that not only will Obama have trouble in traditional swing states, or battleground states, but there will be new states that were once considered “Blue” that will be in play like Wisconsin and Michigan.

      Once again we need to be hoping that Obama recovers slightly…enough so that the Dems don’t march into his office and tell him he’s not running in 2012.

      If he falls too far too fast, as I expect he will, the Dems will ask him to pull an LBJ and recruit Hillary.

      That possibility we need to consider. Obama’s own rank incompetence may assure the Dems get rid of him.
      SM: At this point, your premise above might be too late and such an admission of failure that the Democrats could never recover. Obama and his gang are such narcissists that they would never step down. They do not think they are doing anything wrong.

      I think there is a reason why you do not see any challenges to Obama in a Democrat primary, even though they know that Obama is vulnerable. But they know in the end, most likely Obama would survive the challenge but be beyond mortally politically wounded.

      I will say this, there are many Independents and Democrats who have voters remorse for their 2008 election vote for Obama and will either vote for the GOP candidate or stay home.
