Obama: Negative ratings in 37 states, but king of DC
Washington Examiner ^ | Aug 4, 2012 | Byron York

Posted on 08/04/2012 7:28:41 AM PDT by Innovative

Gallup has just released Barack Obama's job approval rating for the first half of 2012, broken down by state, and the news is not encouraging for the president.

Obam's approval rating is below 50 percent in 37 states, ranging from a 26 percent rating in Utah to a 49 percent rating in Michigan. Obama is at 50 percent or higher in just 13 states, from a 50 percent rating in Minnesota to a 63 percent rating in Hawaii. The president is most popular in Washington DC, where his job approval rating is an astonishing 83 percent.

All the Prez's journalists, and all of his yesmen, could not put his reputation back together again. All they can put back are the shards of glass broken at his Oakland HQ today.

(The Martinez Report) -- POLITICO: "Officials say the window at Obama's office at 16th Street and Telegraph Avenue was broken as more than 100 protesters marched around 12 p.m. Friday ET."

Source: "Chocolate City: The Original DC Anthem"


Many people are familiar with “Welcome To DC”–the hard-driving anthem for the nation’s capital–by a popular Go-Go music group called Mambo Sauce. But long before residents were blasting the current anthem in their ipods, people bumped the original DC anthem on 8-track tapes. The band Parliament, lead by the legendary George Clinton, dedicated the title track of their 1975 album to our fair city where their brand of funk was particularly popular. While “Chocolate City” names several other cities with predominantly black populations, Clinton points out, “…but DC you’re the capital.”

The term Chocolate City, had been used to describe DC where African Americans were the majority ethnic group. While its unclear as to who specifically coined the phrase, it originated with black radio disc jockeys from legendary stations WOL-AM and WOOK-AM.

What’s wrong with 26% of the people in Utah?

Thanks Innovative.
...below 50 percent in 37 states, ranging from a 26 percent rating in Utah to a 49 percent rating in Michigan.
Hmm, maybe the Electoral College will be the place to watch.

Indeed, he is so easy, he could be pushed here and there with a bit of pressure and the whole thing would collapse.

However, he also is pure evil, intent on producing destruction, a Zero, a nihilist, a nothing, an a$$ hole, who is “likeabale” like a dimwitt who acts like a “clusterf#ck of a clutz”.

DC on the other hand acts unconsolable of its stupidity because DC is evil, is emotional bully and is partner in crime and some very shameful activities with terrorists and perversion.

I know their hypocritical messed up types.

Sadly, I think he only needs 13 states to win.

If Zero only carries the states where he’s at 50% approval or above, he wins 183 Electoral Votes versus 353 for Romney. I’d prefer to see a 1980 or 1984 or 1988 style blowout, but with African American voting patterns, that’s not remotely possible.

What’s good to see to me is that his approval ratings are in the Alpo range in states he clearly won in 2008, including Colorado, New Hampshire, Missouri and Montana (how he won the latter, I still have no clue).

What still causes me to scratch my head is how states like North Carolina and Georgia appear closer than they should at 45% approval.

All this simply illustrates his campaign strategy, which is to attempt to take Mitt Romney’s approval rating down to his own level. Obama can’t win without destroying Romney. He has nothing to run on. (though he still seems to like the idea of running against George W. Bush, four-years after the fact).

It is time to unemploy him, retire him, leave our inglorious leader in the ditch, and to move on!

Connecticut 53 - Massachusetts 55 - New York 55 - Vermont 56 - Rhode Island 58

He will have to spend a lot of money and time for the northeast if he expects to win the region. The Dems are in trouble.

I live in CT and already have seen several Romney yard signs up. No one is dumb enough to put a Romeny bumper sticker on their car if they value the paint and tires.

These numbers are probably even better, considering that many Whites are afraid to say they would vote against the Liberal Messiah.

What do you expect from the dumbasses who put Marion Barry back in office?

Did content of character or color of skin figure in to that equation?

Do I have to even ask?

I hope Manchester, South Windsor, Ellington, Bolton, Vernon and Glastonbury will vote for Romney. Iknow my hometown of East Hartford won’t vote for Romney.
