Field Poll: Californians like Obama much more than rest of nation does
San Jose Mercury News ^ | April 8, 2014 | By Josh Richman

Posted on 04/08/2014 4:55:09 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

As President Barack Obama's job approval ratings continue to flounder nationwide, he can still look to California for affirmation.

A new Field Poll found 53 percent of California voters approve of Obama's job performance while 41 percent disapprove. That's nearly the opposite of the nation as a whole, where an average of major polls now finds a 53 percent disapproval and 43 percent approval -- not his all-time low, but nothing to brag about either.

Among California Democrats, 80 percent approve of Obama's job performance and 15 percent disapprove; among Republicans, 80 disapprove and 16 percent approve. Nonpartisans and third-party voters fall in between, with 49 percent approving and 41 percent disapproving.

"...among Republicans, 80 disapprove and 16 percent approve."

This proves that these polls are garbage.

California is Deep Blue. Its going to be one of the few good stories for the Democrats on an otherwise gloomy election night in November.

Yes unfortunately they can not only export liberals to other states like Colo and Texas, but the replacement “immigrants” make the state even more liberal than it was.

Probably accurate. Remember, California is home to a third of the Nation’s welfare recipients. And that number is several years old, it is probably higher now.

It’s the Granola State! Why should anyone be surprised? Once you get past the fruits and nuts, there’s nothing left but flakes.

They must have taken this poll in San Francisco or LA. If they get out in the big ag based counties he would fail in a poll.

Secession is the only answer.Certain states and regions are absolutely beyond redemption....they long ago passed the tipping point.I’ll move to Georgia or North Carolina,Tennessee or Indiana and hope that the layabouts and parasites in those states will move to NY,MA,VT,IL,OH,CA,etc,

This is the answer to my questions about the Gallup 3 day rolling average; whenever it starts testing the floor of -15% decrement , they oversample California and bring it back up to -5%, then let it drift down again.

Well since DiFi and Boxer win by 20 points and Baraq won in 2012 by 23, it’s not like there’s much question on what the electorate looks like.

California is a majority minority state. Minorities love Obama.

Lets be honest.

When I looked at the electoral returns map, it seemed pretty clear that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA voted for the current occupant of the White House.

But you guys are all saying it’s all California’s fault. So I guess it must be. Thanks for being so astute and correcting us on that one. Guess you’re just smarter and better than we are, us with our tenth biggest economy in the world, and Cal Tech, and Hollywood, and Disneyland, and minerals, oil, and agriculture.

On second thought, you all sound like a bunch of bitter jealous exes. Better take it to Facebook.

Signed,

California

That's because kalifornia has been overrun by illegal socialists from mexico, along with attracting every fruit, nut, and flake from the rest of the country, hence the term the “granola” state. The few people left there with there heads firmly grounded in reality are a fast dwindling minority.

Great. Now we just need to go along with Jebbie Bush, Juan McCain, Lindsey Grahamnesty, and the rest of the GOP elites and allow even more mass immigration to the rest of the states. After all, they tell us Hispanics are a natural Republican constituency and if we don’t start sucking up to them we won’t be able to get their votes.

I know Putin is looking at taking back Alaska, but I’m not sure he would be bold enough to try Cali.

Although with the tax rates in Russia, a lot of folks would be cheering him on.
