Obama Approval Falls to 50 Percent in Home State, Collapses in Ohio
National Review ^ | November 27, 2013 | John Fund

Posted on 11/28/2013 5:07:08 AM PST by Zakeet

In the wake of the Obamacare fiasco, President Obama’s poll numbers are collapsing in two industrial Midwestern states — the quintessential swing state of Ohio and his home state of Illinois.

In Illinois, the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found Obama’s approval rating falling to just 50–46 positive in a state he carried by 17 points just a year ago. His biggest drops in support came among women voters (only 50 percent positive) and Hispanics (only 51 percent positive). Without his overwhelming support among African-Americans (92 percent), his approval rating would easily be in the low 40s.

In Ohio, a new Quinnipiac poll has Obama’s approval rating at 34 percent positive and 61 percent negative.

Just makes me dislike these “swing” Ohioans even more (Illinois voters never had any hope). The inversion of the Marxist’s numbers over the past 12 months reflects the LIVs seeing a light most of us saw prior to the 2012 election as retina-scorching bright.

It’s not an epiphany because these fools were dumb enough to vote for him to start with. As soon as there wants are satisfied they’ll be OK with him’z.

Nothing shouts racist like a 94% approval rating. That simply makes a scandalous lie out of every integration scheme the government has ever foisted on America.

That 34% favoribility rating in OH? I felt the undiscussed discontent for Obama before the election. It tells me that Romney got it wrong, and he should’ve gone into those middle class black and hispanic neighborhoods, where a lot of people are worse off under Obama.

Hillary will soon be pitching a remodeling of Obamacare plan
that will simplify the leeches’ problem with O’Care now.

If you have an EBT card (collecting any SNAP, TANF, Section 8 entitlement, et al), use it for any medical expense and it will be paid by the government, regardless of whether it has any balance or not.

It will guarantee at least 100 million voters.

Hillarycare was even more egregious than Obamacare. It was pure Communism.

Yes. Before the HoR takeover by Republicans in 1994, they were planning a wholesale ‘assessment’ of all forms of saved income - 401Ks, IRAs, et al. This would have provided enough entitlement spending to bankroll the recruitment of millions and millions more entitlement leeches and the subsequent consolidation of control in the House and Senate.

With that, they would have then proceeded to the seizure of all private retirement accounts, and, in return, they’d grant you a ‘bonus’ increase in your monthly SS check.

They, Democrats, have this in mind as the final solution (besides the eventual more traditional ‘Final Solution’ ala SS Nazi Germany for those of us who still don’t comport).

Exactly on point. Problem is, the others will let him spin his lies and jump back in his corner when told to do so. He outright lied to the American People. When the Unions, special interests and welfare states tell them to vote Dem they will. When it is close they will”rig” the electronic voting and refuse to provide ID to vote. When all else fails, they run a third party and mindless idiots vote as told.
Ohio is getting what they deserve. Illinois got their present with Rahm E. Now they are also destroyed. California is a total mess but still has the most people and the most Electorial Votes. They don’t care who is ruining/running things unless it is a Dem.

It just doesn’t matter how many now see what we all saw.

The king of the sobees has his reelection and he doesn’t care what people think. MAYBE enough people will turn on the dumbles and give the pubbies control but I am not so sure...everybody says reps are jerks except for their rep. So 90% get reelected.
And the senate is a tough nut..you saw what conservatives did to snatch defeat from victory with the idiotic statements on rape witchcraft and the crap angle was saying that gave us all back harry reid.

So while I ruefully cheer the late come to Jesus, I do not know how much of a sea change it will be. We can hope and work for it...I certainly will do my best to see kay hagen go back to the real estate biz...buit you saw the tricks smears and relentless lies in the press that ruined many a campaign.

I see the MSM is still spotting him 30 points

How do we get rid of this infestation when he probably has NSA files on all the senators or has paid them off in tax $$$?

how do we get rid of this infestation...

Governance has got to be more local. If these people were coming up through town and city government first, their local competitors could nail them before they reached higher office. Stop forgiving those who commit misdeeds after they've taken office, but forgive anything that happened prior to it. Catch....they can't lie about those prior misdeeds. Demand the same standards for the opposing polical party as your own.

Summary....we get rid of the infestation with higher standards. Examples: That Republican HOR member caught buying cocaine? He should be gone, and there should be so much clarity that he would've resigned. A US Senator who fathered a child when young, kept it secret, and supported the child?....okay. John Edwards becoming a baby dady while running for VP?...not okay.

You just can't have civilization without standards, equally applied to everyone.

I wish the elections were tomorrow. We would win everything. A year from now, we hope to at least keep what we have. It is so unfair how timing always works against us....

I find it interesting that 17% of the African-American voters are revealed to be racists, that they are against Obama “just because he is Black.” Or maybe they are against his Caucasian maternal lineage?

“Nothing shouts racist like a 94% approval rating. That simply makes a scandalous lie out of every integration scheme the government has ever foisted on America.”

But how about the women?” WTF is wrong with most of them? They seem to buy “being cared for by the government” hook, line and sinker. At least the Blacks have the old skin color “thing” going for them here.

So true, but remember "fairness" is a liberal term, and it means that liberals win and conservatives lose.

Well, I guess Senator Roman Hruska, R-NE, should have said “even idiots need a little representation too.” Instead, he said “the mediocre need a little representation too.”

If only 34% of Ohioans approve of Obama it’s because of his DEMOCRATIC policy on healthcare, which every DEMOCRAT in Congress approved of.

The Democratic party cannot be separated from ObamaCare, it’s part of its DNA, and every day that Obama and Harry Reid adamantly refuse to repeal it while Americans suffer, the Democratic party will continue to suffer.

As for Ohio, its 12.5% African-American population and 3.3% Hispanic population, which are overwhelmingly pro-Obama, together represent almost half of Obama’s 34% Ohio support.

(Illinois voters never had any hope)

Illinois is the same as the rest of the midwest except that there are a few districts in Chicago where the Dems manufacture the votes they need in any election. More votes than residents in a lot of cases.

You are right UNLESS there are more Obama scandals between now and next Fall.

And my suspicion is there will be because this crowd is so corrupt it seems inevitable.
