54% of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of the disasterous job failed President Barack Obama is doing, with 52% saying he does not deserve to be re-elected.
What’s up with the 2% that disapprove of the job he’s doing but still think he deserves to be re-elected?
I don’t know why pollsters insist on matching Obama up against individuals in the GOP primary field. They’re always going to report worse than reality, because there’s been no campaign yet and people are only going by name recognition. The real number is the 42% who say he deserves to be re-elected. That would be his share of the vote if it were held today.
Still, Romney beats Obama by two points and, strangely, “No Chance” Santorum gets within the margin of error. Like I said, a worthless name recognition question.
Congressional Republicans and Democrats fare equally poorly in the poll, with each at 28% approval.
It’s important to note that all of these numbers for Obama are much lower than they were when Quinnipiac asked voters these questions in June.
Not exactly sure why it’s so important to note that. Obviously Obama sucks worse in July than he did in June. Spoiler alert: He’ll suck worse in August than he did in July. The Obameconomy is rolling downhill fast, and you can’t sit idly by in a room why Navy SEALs kill bin Laden every month.
And, while it may be “important to note,” it’s also not true. Romney beat Obama 47%-40% in June and by 44%-42% in July.
The poll sampled a pretty healthy 1,358 registered voters, a demographic usually favorable to Democrats.
