In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Et Tu, New York?

Is this even possible? I’m reading this press release from the pollsters at Quinnipiac.

“Alabama voters disapprove 49-45 percent of the job President Obama is doing.”

Wait a second.

That doesn’t say Alabama. That says New York!!

New York? Is Obama in trouble in New York??  I can’t believe dskdgns;orihaeif

Sorry, I passed out on the keyboard.

This has got to have everyone at Obama for America peeing voluminously in their pants. Obama better raise that $1 billion he’s gunning for, because it looks like he’s going to need to defend a lot of states he might have expected to be cakewalks.

He’s still up 15 points over an unnamed challenger in New York, but a good “named” candidate could give the president something to worry about with those kinds of approval numbers.

Remember, New York elected Republican George Pataki governor three times. And the conservatives upstate are going to be highly energized, like much of the Obama opposition.

From the press release:

New York State voters disapprove 49 – 45 percent of the job President Obama is doing, a huge drop from his 57 – 38 percent approval June 29 and the first time the president ever has had a negative score in New York, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Democrats approve 75 – 19 percent, down from 82 – 12 percent in June. Disapproval is 86 – 10 percent among Republicans, compared to a 74 – 23 percent disapproval in June, and 58 – 36 percent among independent voters, compared to a slightly positive 49 – 45 percent in June, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.

Voters split 48 – 46 percent on whether President Obama deserves reelection and say 49 – 34 percent they would vote for him over an unnamed Republican.

“The debt ceiling hullaballoo devastated President Barack Obama’s numbers even in true blue New York,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “He just misses that magic 50 percent mark against a no-name Republican challenger.”

  1. Goodness, calm down. It seems that a small convention of the Arizona NRA and the EOB (enforce our borders) group were meeting in NewYorkCity and were mistaken for locals by the pollsters.

  2. Nah, they’re mad at him now but those New Yorkers have been taught to hate Republicans more than anything else. Come crunch time they’ll tow the party line…they always do.

  3. I am just wondering what crisis this administration will create in order for his magnificence to get more brownie points. He can’t use “the worst economy since the Great Depression” BS no more. And I think his continued use of that statement sent many people into freeze my assets mode. Stupid man.

  4. It was this same logic that got same sex marriage passed here in NYS. Once polling showed 50+% in support, legislation was back on the table the next day. Now only two months later when the white house pulls sub-50 numbers in these same polls, this time the data becomes rather hushed and discounted.

    Ah, the virtue of the electoral college.

  5. As a upstate New Yorker this explains why Chuckie(Schumer) was in the area this past week. The only time he ever shows up is his election years.
    He was at a apple orchard in Watkins Glen this past week it had me confused about why he had lowered himself to visit us hayseeds!
    He must have been given orders to get us in line

  6. Perhaps also causing Obama’s ratings to drop besides his failures on budgeting and pushing world domination which the US did not need is due to Michelle Obama. I see her trips are taking a 1 every 9 days to be excessive spending as well as her lavish eat outs at restaurants while the food might not cost a lot the protection does and without all the autos how then would the Secret Service get where she goes so transportation esp airplane trip expenses are taking a toll on his presidency in a mighty severe way. Instead of Czars he should have got a in house cater service so Michelle could eat in if she must eat in without Secret Service being billed excessively. Voters are losing a small fortune on Obama’s trips abroad when he should be staying in the USA.

  7. Obumer doesn’t need to gather up a billion dollars for his campaign chest. He actually doesn’t need anything except the lieing liberal press. 99% of those people are already going 24-7 for him at no charge. As soon as they found out that Governor Perry was going to run, they started trashing him and even trashing the state of Texas. National news last night ABC NBC CBS devoted half their “news time” to their project. By trashing the people that would America that would bring America out of the obumer curse, liberal news media are a part of the curse.

  8. There isn’t anything obumer could do… or not do… to get his negative 40% to go any farther down. 40% of the population in America is content for our country to be in the toilet as long as obumer will keep the welfare checks coming in, the housing we pay for for the bums coming in, the food we buy for them, their “anytime” medicaid with no co-pay coming, etc.
    Remember, all our money we work for to provide for the bums is collected by force from working people and will be collected at gunpoint if it takes that drastic action to get it from us. Think about it… We are almost outnumbered and once they get to be the majority, they can take… “vote”… everything from us.

    The 40% that like obumer will always be there for him.

  9. bah, I am in liberal illegal alien loving California and everybody hates obama and all other politicians. the trouble is: only union goons, teachers, pigs and firefighters vote.

    he will be reelected in a landslide.
