Billy Joel sang, “Say Goodbye to Hollywood’, Obama might be sing saying the same to Florida.
Another day and another poll have President Barack Obama losing in the all important battle ground state of Florida. The latest grim news comes from a new Sachs/Mason-Dixon has Obama trailing GOP challengers Mitt Romney and in a dead heat with Texas Governor Rick Perry in the battle for the Sunshine state.Barack Obama has a meager 41% job approval, while 56% disapprove, including an incredible 55% of Independents.
Among the findings of the August Sachs/Mason-Dixon Florida Poll:
***51 percent of Floridians would vote for Governor Romney compared to 43 percent for President Obama;
***In a hypothetical matchup with Texas Governor Rick Perry, Perry leads with 46 percent to Obama’s 45 percent;
***President Obama leads Congresswoman Michele Bachmann 46 percent to 44 percent; and
***41 percent of Floridians approve of President Obama’s job performance while 56 percent disapprove. Fifty five percent of independents disapprove.
Just the other day, a Magellan poll had Obama with a 37% approval rating in Florida. As stated at the Business Insider, Obama’s swing state woes continue. If this trend continues, which with an economy that sees no sign of improving, there is no reason why Obama’s polling numbers will get better, the swing woes will turn into an election landslide.
Obama can thank his lucky stars that the election is not tomorrow.
