Skip to comments.Those Californians grow even fonder of Obama's job performance
Posted on 02/24/2012 4:14:43 PM PST by Kaslin
Californians must love $4 gas, enroute to $5. And a stubbornly high unemployment rate.
Now, if only the Golden state could become the official ATM for Campaign Obama. So the overworked guy wouldn't have to deal with any real issues, citizens or media on his regular trips to the left coast.
He could just fly his 747 into LA or San Francisco, tie up traffic, squeeze $35G's out of awed supporters for the same predictable fundraiser speech (change is hard, there's more to do) and head out to milk Western boosters elsewhere.
Oh, wait! He's already doing that every couple of months.
As a result, President Obama's favorable rating in the nation's most populous state, the one that's been experiencing state unemployment around 11-13% in the Obama economy, is improving nicely when it wasn't all that bad to begin with.
Californians have always liked this POTUS. They're liking him even more nowadays. And why not? He spends like California governments. He says he likes them. He's got his own plane, but he likes the idea of regular Americans paying for high-speed railroads that no one would ride and no one can afford.
A new Field Poll just out finds that once again a majority of Californians now rate this president's job performance really positively, at 53%. Only 39% disapprove of his job. Great reelection news for just 256 days from now.

I don’t think there is any help for this idiots
Plus California likes windmills, bullet trains, solar panels and now algae. This will be zero’s legacy.
Zero and Moonbeam forever.
If all he gets when he flies in is 35 G’s we wopuld be better off to have the Government write him a check each time he wants to go.
The flight out there costs in the hundreds of thousands for us.
I’m in that 39%.
They’re hoping Obama will bail them out so they don’t have to make any cuts in their state budget.
I guessing that most of the 53% who approve are probably getting some type of government assistance.
The last time a Republican carried California was George H. Bush in 1988. I lived there at the time and voted for him.
He ran on the Reagan record and then threw all the Reagan people under the bus shortly after being sworn in on January 20, 1989.
The depressing thing about California.....the candidate who carries the state receives 20% of the Electoral College votes he or she needs in order to win the presidency.
I’ll bet he has 100% approval rating from the State employees.
Yup. Me too...39% GD anti-obama, mexifornian resident here. Fag AIDS billboards everywhere, no one speaks English, $4.50 gas now in Sta Monica (well, these West Holly lib clowns deserve it)...
. . .and additional $1,500 state rebate
. . .California has 1,400 miles of roads with lanes designated for cars carrying two or more people. Volt drivers along with drivers of other advanced-battery and zero-emissions cars can use these lanes even if the cars are carrying only the driver.
GM says that cars on congested Southern California roads that use the high-occupany vehicle lanes can save about 36 minutes a day in commuting time.
The ability to drive in the “HOV lanes” in California was a boost to sales of the Prius hybrid when Toyota Motor Corp ramped up sales of the market's dominant hybrid car. But standard hybrids like the Prius are no longer eligible for special stickers to allow access to HOV lanes for cars without passengers. . .
that would not surprise me
you can’t use the word “bullet” when describing something here in CA.
It sends liberals into a panic.
It’s “high speed rail”, it sounds so...progressive.
and the coastal counties, which basically own the state anyway.
Not enough population in the red counties (working/producing) to make up for the numbers.
On the other hand the productive middle class are fewer every year.
Personally I cant wait until the place runs out of money and the leaches depart for greener pastures.
This Californian don't, and neither does anyone we know here.
Based on this fact, this makes the author of this, full of cheet.
I was polled once by the Field Poll, it was for the 1988 election.
It was a telephone poll, and the pollster (who sounded as though she might have been a college student, except for the dreadful grammar) kept trying to lead (more than a nudge) my responses to support Dukakis and other leftie nonsense. The Field Pollster literally quibbled every time she did not like my non-liberal responses, and she was offended that I supported George HW Bush.
The Field Poll is possibly more liberally biased than NYT or NY Post polls.
or encumber more democrats...same result...
Oh, you mean the leftist idiot's who actually support this guy. Just like the idiots who support him in your state.
“Its high speed rail, it sounds so...progressive.”
Yes. Use three words when one will do. That is soooooo...progressive.
NOT ALL OF US WHO ARE STUCK HERE IN CA FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER THINK THE CLOSET MUZZIE IS JUST WONDERFUL...NOR DO WE LIKE THE STATE LEGISLATRURE EITHER..AND YES I AM YELLING BECAUSE I GET SICK AND TIRED OF ALL CALIFORNIANS BEING LUMPED IN WITH THE DOLTS WHO DO LOVE THIS CRIMINAL IN THE WH...AND THE MOONBEAM IN SAC.
The majority of the Californicate population are very similar to the Romans before their fall ... just give them bread and circuses and they will dance in the streets until Nero (Food Stamp President) burns the place down.
“Im in that 39%.”
Same here and not every county voted for Obozo either.
And less will this time. I’m under no illusions Obama can lose here, but it will be closer, but it’s got to start hitting home at some point, California is in a death spiral.
Now hear this!
Apostrophe alert! Apostrophe alert! “$35g’s” in the third sentence.
