Skip to comments.Field Poll: Obama approval rating at 46% in state (Even in California: Time for Change?)

Even as President Obama's approval rating has plummeted across the nation, it was always sunnier in California. Until now.
For the first time since Obama became president in January 2009, fewer than half (46 percent) of California voters approve of his performance as president - a figure that's dropped eight percentage points in three months, according to a Field Poll survey of attitudes toward Obama released today.
The poll of 1,001 registered state voters was taken Sept. 1-12. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
Nationally, 43.9 percent of respondents approve of Obama's job performance, according to an average of major polls by RealClearPolitics.com. Only 12.8 percent approve of the way Congress is doing its job, according to the site.
The Field Poll survey has no shortage of bad news for Obama in his once-safe political refuge where he captured 61 percent of the vote during his 2008 victory. Now, 68 percent of California voters believe that "things in the U.S. are seriously off on the wrong track" - ..
Only 40 percent of the respondents approve of the way he's handling the economy, down from 61 percent in March 2009. On Tuesday, a day after his $450 billion jobs package was introduced to Congress, Obama traveled to the crucial swing state of Ohio to promote the plan. Today, he will campaign in North Carolina, another battleground state.
But in California, the most ominous Field Poll numbers came from those who previously supported him: Only 45 percent of independent voters approve of his job performance, down from 58 percent in June. Support from Democrats is also waning, dropping 10 percentage points (to 69 percent) since June.
"They are seeing him as a man of goodwill, but increasingly, they are seeing him as ineffective," DiCamillo said.

I know, it’s California,,
but don’t forget , more folks classify themselves as Independent than ever before in this GolDarn State... soooo.
Liberals are racists.
Nah, voting Democratic is an identity issue for most California voters, meaning “I’m not Republican”, just as “not being American” is most Canadians’ defintion of being Canadian.
No matter, they’d vote for a dress form tricked out in tinsel tassel, if it had a Dem label.
The Republicans have no chance of winning any statewide election. There are probably more than a million illegal aliens who have been registered to vote as permanent mail voters. The California voter registration form has two fields for the voter’s address. One field is for where the voter lives. The other field is for where the absentee ballot is mailed to. You can assume that the ballots are going to ACORN, SEIU or some other leftist crooks. The voter never sees the ballot. The voter does not even know that a ballot is cast in their name. Republicans who walk the precints and talk to the “voters” know what is going on.
Let’s see a GOP rout of every swing state in 012 and pickups in blue states.
For folks keeping score at home, he got 61 percent in CA. That’s -15.
Obama’s at 57-43 in Hawaii, and 53-47 in Vermont.
Illinois is at 47-53.
New York is at 48-52.
Massachusetts is at 47-53.
He’s similarly down in Maryland too.
Nothing to talk about here or discuss!!!! POTUS Obama, the African Muslim lover of the “Muslim Brotherhood” is toast and now, a true “Lame Duck”. Words, of advice and wisdom......Senators, Nelson (Ben), Lieberman, Landrieu, Manchin, Pryor, Tester, & Webb, jump over to the Republican Party immediately, save your political skins, more importantly, save our country. Obama is going down politically, big time and he will be taking the current Democrat party with him to massive defeat come, November, 2012!!! The handwriting is on the wall, for all to see. Obama, the egomaniac, empty suit, incompetent will never resign, so.....joining the Pubbies in a new majority Senate will immediately render Obama ineffective in total!! We, the people in both our country and the world in general are watching!!! Obama is now radioactive and toxic at the same time!!! Wake up and get with the program!!!
Gone baby gone, the love is gone...away.
could you see a conservative wining the presidential election
in the californicate?
That can only mean one thing.
Che Guevara is at 54%.
