Bad News for Incumbent Obama … Quinnipiac Poll: Ohio Voters Divided On Second Term For Obama, 45% – 46%
Its never a good sign when an incumbent politician polls under 50% … such is the case with Barack Obama in Ohio and whether the voters think he deserves a second term.
According to a recent Quinnipiac Poll, 45% of Ohio voters think he deserves a second term, while 46% disapprove. Ohio, is a key swing state that Obama carried in 2008; however, went strongly Republican in the 2010 midterm elections. As stated by the Hot Air Pundit, Ohio is a must win for Republicans. However, the same could be said for Obama.
Ohio voters are split 45 – 46 percent on whether President Barack Obama deserves a second term, but they favor him over an unnamed Republican 2012 challenger 41 – 34 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
President Obama has a split 47 – 48 percent job approval rating, compared to 49 – 46 percent in a January 20 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.
The problem for Obama in any swing state that he won in 2010 is that he now has a record to defend. Obama can not longer talk and “Hope & Change” or that he is not GWB. He will have to defend Obamacare, the economy and his continues lack of leadership when crisis occur. After being against Bush going to war, Obama has his own war now to defend in Libya.
Polls at this point are pretty much irrelevent; however, the real issues will be what is the economy, jobs, gas prices and the instability in the Middle East going to look like. Voters will have a clear choice in 2012 to decide on in Ohio and across the United States, the failed liberal/socialist policies of a weak president or a return to more conservative, capitalist ways.
One thing is for certain, Obamamania will not exists … We the People know exactly who and what Obama is. The real question is not whether Obama deservess a second term, it’s whether the United States can stand an
Yet Another Poll that States that Sarah Palin’s Cross-Hairs & Political Rhetoric Had Little to Do with Tucson Shooting
CNN has yet out another poll looking for blame in the Tucson, AZ shooting tragedy that left 6 dead and 14 wounded. However, once again those polled do not find Sarah Palin’s bulls-eye map or political rhetoric to blame. Previous polls from CBS and Quinnipiac University confirm the same, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Fox News had little to do with Jared Loughner’s evil acts.
“But while a large majority predict that tragedy in Tucson will lead to more civility in political debates, only one in ten think that change will be permanent,” adds Holland. “Seven in ten say politicians will tone it down in the short run but the change won’t last very long, and 18 percent think there will be no change at all.”
Seven out of ten blame the resources available to deal with people who may be mentally ill as a contributing factor to the shooting.
According to the poll, the public doesn’t blame Sarah Palin’s website for the incident in Arizona. Only a third of all Americans say that the website – which had an image that looked like the crosshairs of a gun marking Gifford’s congressional district – deserves a great deal or a moderate amount of blame. The former Alaska governor put the website up last year during the debate over health care reform, to highlight 20 congressional districts won by Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election, where Democratic representatives were voting in favor of the legislation.

More from Weasel Zippers and the 35% of loons who continue to have PDS and believe all that has been disproved and the fact that there is zero evidence that Loughner had ever seen Palin’s bullseye map. Even more pathetic, 56% of Democrats believe the bulls-eye map myth. How is there supposed to be this so-called change in political discourse if more than one 1/2 of a party polled lives in an alternate universe and is so consumed with hate and Palin Derangement Syndrome, that they will believe all that has been disproved? But when you have a MSM and Pima County Sheriff with an agenda from minute one disseminating false information and their own opinions in place of facts …
Political Hate & Vitriol Responsible for Jared Loughner’s Arizona Shooting Massacre Eh … Only 15% Say Yes
The US public has soundly rejected the liberal MSM, Democrats and Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik who have all tried to exploit and falsely claim that Republicans, talk radio and Fox News were responsible for the Arizona massacre that left six dead and US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D) in critical condition following suspect Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage. According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, only 15% say it was due to heated political rhetoric.
Saturday’s shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, in which six people were killed, could not have been prevented, 40 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Another 23 percent blame the mental health system, while 15 percent say it was due to heated political rhetoric and 9 percent attribute the tragedy to lax gun control.
American voters say 52 – 41 percent that “heated political rhetoric drives unstable people to commit violence,” the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Liberals rather than conservatives are more responsible for such rhetoric, voters say 36 – 32 percent.
Once again the liberal MSM’s attempt to falsely report a story and and contrive that it was conservatives political rhetoric has failed miserably with the American people. Which completely makes sense as to why President Barack Obama, who did little to quell the liberal accusation hate machine in the days following the Arizona massacre, had to finally call out the LEFT during the Tucson Memorial/Pep rally and states that the gunman’s action were a result of evil, not political rhetoric.
In a previously released CBS poll, 32% of Americans thought the mass killings in Tucson, AZ were a result of extreme political rhetoric. Which further shows that the more that the public hears the details and the news, the less they believe the liberal media’s attempt at creating a false narrative.
