Poll: Ohioans Souring On President Barack Obama (I was sour when he was elected)
CBS Cleveland ^ | 06/26/13 | Staff

Posted on 06/26/2013 6:52:07 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

A poll finds that President Barack Obama’s job approval ratings are skidding among voters in Ohio, the swing state he carried twice.

The poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University indicates that 57 percent of voters disapproved of the way Obama is doing things as president, his lowest grade ever in Ohio.

The poll finds 40 percent approve of Obama’s job performance, with independent voters moving away from the president.

It doesn’t really matter anymore. By 2016, this nation will be so divided, I’ll be shocked if we actually see the elections.

Obama is a clinical narcissist. Narcissists do NOT give up fame or power without a fight.

Yeah... we heard all that before last election, but a funny thing happened on the way to the polls...

You don’t matter anymore, Ohio.

Oh, we'll see "elections," but at the presidential level, it'll just be a token event.

They can be “sour” all they want. The Kenyan has three and a half more years to finish off America. They don’t know what “sour” is yet. Elections do have consequences.

So he dropped below the 47 percent level to 40.I bet that the 7 percent still take their government handout though...

I’m an Ohioan. That day I returned from the polls in the last election, I was absolutely sure he was going to win. I know a lot of people here: urban and rural, black and white, Dems and Pubbies. Many of my relatives are from the Cleveland area, and they told me the same. The vast majority were voting “against Obama.” Romney seemed to be a shoe in.

When I stood in line at the polls, there were people outside handing out literature as usual. You had to wait to get a Republican info sheet. They ran out early. The Dem literature wasn’t touched, and literally everyone took their “Vote Republican,” into the poll both with them.

Remember the crazy statistics of precincts voting well over 100% here and the voting machines that counted a “Romney” vote as a vote for “Obama.” I don’t believe Ohio voted for Obama at all.

I also bet he could drop to 20% and still the media and Chicago political fraud would win it again for him.

There were dozens of precints in very poor and very black neighborhoods where Obama got 100% of the votes cast (with the occasional third party vote here and there) and Romney got zero. But none of these had 100% turn out.

I also think its safe to say in these specific neighborhoods there are no Romney voters.

We'll see "elections", but like any dictator in a banana republic, 0bama will ensure that the outcome will not be in doubt.

I firmly believe that in key swing states, the 2012 election was rigged and you can expect to see more of this on a larger scale in 2016.

Same here in SOUTH Florida. There were 3 to 1 Romney/Obama signs. But nope.

The early voting, on top of absentee ballot voting and same day voting... yeah, 3 to 1 votes will succeed in winning and cheating.

And... you could explain why, in the same poll, Ohioans pick Hillary over all GOPers (tied with Christie), even though they’ve so vehemently voiced their momentary disgust with Obama. Certainly Buckeyes must know the connection between the two, no?

Yes, of course we all know that in the official tally Obama “won” ohio in both 2008 and 2012.

What I’m saying is that I don’t think “Ohio” voted for Obama. That was not at all what we in Ohio experienced on the ground, in our neighborhoods, in our schools, in our workplaces. Granted, in 2008 you would see tons of Obama signs in in inter-cities, but in 2012 they were rare even in those neighborhoods.

The “machine” put Obama ahead. If you go back to the news stories at the time, there were lots of voting machine errors here, and they consistently favored Obama. We had several inter-city precincts where Obama carried well over 100% of the vote in key districts. People witnessed poll workers filling out “left over” ballots at shifts end. It stunk to high heaven.

I was taking a course at Cleveland State University the day Obama came in 2012. CLEVELAND State University. We who were taking the course were all told to get there early, because the University was expecting a traffic nightmare, and we were to get in the parking lots by 7 AM to ensure a place before his big afternoon reception.

When I got there, I was surprised to see- nothing. No one on the streets. Granted, it was early in the morning, but the only people I saw were bored traffic cops. When our day-long class broke for lunch, I walked to the site of the speech. There were people- maybe 13 or so, one hour before the event. I’m guessing they were there to set up. Throughout the day we saw little to no traffic. It was the event that wasn’t.

These are the same districts from which we were seeing the 100% + votes for Obama?
