The presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney surges in Florida over Barack Obama.
According to the most recent Quinnipiac poll, Romney is up 6% over Obama and leads the incumbent President in the Sunshine state 47% to 41%. This is quite a statement for Romney, taking the lead in the key battleground state of Florida. What seems to be driving the poll is the 45 approve – 55% disapprove of Obama job approval and the 58% yes – 30% no likability of Romney.
Gov. Mitt Romney holds a 47 – 41 percent lead over President Barack Obama in Florida, where 63 percent of voters say the president’s support of same-sex marriage will not affect their vote, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Another 25 – 11 percent of voters, including 23 – 9 percent among independent voters, say Obama’s support of gay marriage makes them less likely to support his candidacy.
Adding Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio to the GOP ticket would give the Republican Romney/Rubio team a 49 – 41 percent lead over President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Romney’s lead in the horse race compares to a 44 – 43 percent tie in a May 3 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and a 49 – 42 percent Obama lead March 28.
Florida is a truly representative swing state and could spell political reelection doom for Obama and what the landscape will look like in the rest of the battleground states up for grabs in the 2012 Presidential election.
Obama and Democrats still have to defend Obamacare in the 2012 elections … good luck.
A dark cloud continues to hover over Barack Obama and his reelection bid for 2012, his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, is as unpopular as ever. Most voters according to a recent Quinnipiac poll want the SCOTUS, the Supreme Court of the United States, to over turn it. By a 48% to 40% Americans want nothing to do with Obamacare, including Independents who oppose the healthcare law 45%-38%.
A new poll shows that most voters want the Supreme Court to overturn President Obama’s health care law, with opposition and support falling largely along party lines.
Overall, voters oppose the law by 48%-40%, according to the Quinnipiac University survey. Democrats support the Obama health care effort by 70%-19%, while Republicans oppose it by 86%-8%.
The Quinnipiac survey found independent voters opposed to the law by 45%-38%.
Full poll can be seen HERE.
However, the public’s disastrous for Obamacare is even worse than the above Quinnipiac poll states. According to the Real Clear Politics average polling for Obamacare, American voters oppose the law 49.8% to 38.7%. Barack Obama and Democrats in the House and US Senate are going to have a difficult time explaining to voters why they voted against the will of the American people. Good luck to Democrats like Ben Nelson in Nebraska and Bill Nelson in Florida explaining their way out of this.
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.
President Barack Obama’s Sinking Poll Numbers … Low Job Approval & 50% Say He Does not Deserve to be Re-elected in 2012
President Barack Obama’s poll numbers are tanking …
As Obama’s dithering continues so does the downward spiral of his poll numbers. Obama’s indecision and lack of a clear message in the “kinetic military operation” WAR in Libya, Obamacare debacle and additional waiver requests, continues poor economy and elevated oil prices have all added to Obama’s poor job approval numbers. According to the most recent Quinnipiac University National Poll, The One’s job approval rating is at 48% disapprove and only 42% approve.
Making matter worse for Obama, 50% do not believe that Barack Obama deserves a second term as President while only 41% believe he does. Hardly a good sign for an incumbent President seeking reelection in 2012. The lack of leadership and incoherent waffling message to the American people on any topic these days is wearing thin.
American voters disapprove 48 – 42 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing and say 50 – 41 percent he does not deserve to be re-elected in 2012,both all-time lows, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
This compares to a 46 – 46 percent job approval rating and a 45 – 47 percent split on the President’s re-election in a March 3 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. In a hypothetical 2012 matchup, President Obama gets 36 percent of the vote to 37 percent for an unnamed Republican challenger.
Democrats approve 80 – 13 percent of the job Obama is doing, but disapproval is 81 – 9 percent among Republicans and 50 – 39 percent among independent voters. Men disapprove 52 – 41 percent while women split 44 – 44 percent.
Why are these polling numbers so alarming? These are the lowest job approval numbers for Obama in the Quinnipiac poll, even lower than any in 2010. Obama even loses to an unnamed GOP candidate in this poll 37% to 36%. How can that be good news for any incumbent politician?
Barack Obama also failed miserably in this poll in handling the federal budget 64% disapprove – 30% approve, the economy 60% disapprove – 30% approve, foreign policy disapprove 47% – approve 41%, healthcare disapprove 55% – 38% approve.
More at Wake Up America with the trending downward polling data of Barack Obama. 2012 is right around the corner.
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.
