Whoa… Barack Obama Is Even Underwater in Washington State
A Survey USA poll for KING-TV in Seattle of 650 registered voters showed Barack Obama is in trouble in the Evergreen State on this Washington’s Birthday weekend.
President Obama’s approval/disapproval is 42%/47% and he has a gender gap in which most men disapprove of the job he is doing.
The survey asked: “Overall, has Barack Obama been a better president than you expected? A worse president than you expected? Or, the same as you expected?”
18% said better — 43% said worse.
And it is the economy, stupid. This poll shows once again that the Surber Rule — talk about the economy and nothing but the economy — is the most valid political advice in 2012.
Obama gets 56% disapproval on his handling of the economy — and 58% disapproval of his handling of the federal deficit.
More… Obama also trails three of four candidates in Iowa.
