“Indeed, spending any resources in states that haven’t gone Republican in a generation means Obama’s in deep trouble.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of behind-the-scenes meetings occur at Chez Clinton while Obama’s off golfing in Martha’s Vineyard. Democrats might want to use that time to figure out a way to usher this boob out the door gracefully unless they want to join him on the sinking ship.”
What is that JammieWearingFools referring to? The PUMA P.A.C. people (giving away (yup, free) Hillary 2012 bumper stickers) will love the news. Here is what the Jammie people are referring to and yup, you’re reading correctly, it’s New York State:
“President Obama’s job approval ratings are the worst they’ve ever been in the Empire State, but voters here are still sticking with him in 2012, according to a new Siena College poll released today.
The poll finds that just 36% of New Yorkers approve of Obama’s job performance — a 17-point plummet from the 53% rating he received in May. Meanwhile, 63% of voters give the president a negative job performance rating.
“His job performance has not fallen, it has tanked,” said Siena pollster Steven Greenberg.
“Even Democrats are evenly divided. For the first time since March, fewer than half of voters say they are prepared to re-elect the president.” [snip]
“If the Democratic National Committee has to spend money competing in New York for the presidential victory next year, they are in big trouble,” Greenberg said. “Because if they are competing in New York, which is a two-to-one Democratic state, that does not bode well for them nationally.”
As to why New York voters would vote for Obama even though they think he stinks? Don’t bet the condo on that. [On the other hand, the idiot left cannot be underestimated in their stupidity.]
