The day after Gov. John Kasich hit a new high in job approval among Ohio voters, President Barack Obama sank to an all-time low.

Just 40 percent of Ohioans give Obama a positive rating, while 57 percent disapprove in a Quinnipiac Poll released today.

“President Obama’s fortunes in the Buckeye State have turned,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, in a release.“Since last December he has lost 10 points among Democrats and 17 points among independent voters. He has gone from a 20-point approval margin among women to a 9-point disapproval margin among female voters.”

The survey is Quinnipiac’s first in Ohio since the country has been rocked by revelations of the IRS targeting certain political groups and electronic eavesdropping by U.S. national security agencies.

For the first time, a majority of Ohio voters (52 percent) don’t think Obama is “honest and trustworthy.”

Brown said Obama’s paltry showing in the Buckeye State virtually matches his numbers in Florida from September 2011 as the worst among the nine states in which the Connecticut university conducts polls.

The new poll also shows that a potential 2016 presidential matchup between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and either New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie or Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul would be close: she and Christie are tied at 42 percent, while the former first lady is beating Paul by 3 points, 47 to 44.

But Vice President Joe Biden is losing to both possible GOP candidates: Christie swamps him 50 percent to 32 percent, and Paul is topping him 49 percent to 40 percent.

More than three-quarters of Ohioans favor requiring background checks for people buying guns at gun shows and online. And Ohio Sen. Rob Portman’s vote against that measure made 45 percent of voters regard the Republican with greater disapproval, compared to 15 percent whose approval increased.

Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown’s vote in favor of that same bill increased his approval among 43 percent, versus 16 percent who voiced more disapproval.

Ohioans are now split over whether to expand Medicaid, the federal-state health-care program for the poor and disabled. The poll shows that 46 percent favor the change, 47 percent oppose it. The same issue, which may resurface this week in the legislature, was favored by small margins in a pair of Quinnipiac polls earlier this year.

The full results are online at http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-cent...

The telephone poll, which includes land lines and cell phones, June 18 through Sunday of 941 randomly selected registered Ohio voters has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.

Factor in Obama's "necessarily skyrocketing" energy costs next month...and watch these numbers bottom out.

Even the slow learners are finally catching on.

GDP Grows 1.8% in Q1, Below Estimates

The economy grew at a 1.8% annual rate in the first quarter, the government reported Wednesday, well below previous estimates of 2.4% growth and missing forecasts.

The biggest change was a cut in the government's estimate of consumer spending growth, which dropped to 2.6% from 3.4% growth. Consumer spending is more than 70% of the economy....

the idiot in chief is worried about global warming, while the rest of the country is worried about finding a job and maybe saving some money for the future.

Today's Columbus Dispatch stated the 80% of electricity in Ohio is from coal powered plants. Who do you think is going to pay for the changes? Ohio will be in trouble. Not to mention what is going to happen with gasoline, possible projection of price,$8 to $10 a gallon. Thanks to all of the low-information voters!

It's worth questioning how much lower his numbers would be if not for the AWR by the non-white population.

You can measure that by the same 16 counties that handed the state to Barry.

remember - this is the same liar that campaigned saying he wasn't waging a war on coal - or taking credit for the cheap natural gas that he fights tooth and nail.
who in their right mind believes a word he says?

Er, one election was thrown by the repugnicans by putting up that walking colostomy bag McCain. And the second was stolen by the blackbox ballot machines. The stain obama's poll numbers were this bad going into the election in October. Oh? Who told us otherwise? yep, the enemedia. Remember, obama was running war materiel out of Benghazi to our enemies al quida and Ambassador Stevens was part of a fake kidnapping scheme that went sideways in a double cross. But hey, obama did get his rocks off watching Stevens getting buttsexed to death via the real-time drone video feed.

Barry doesn't care. Never did. He's a true believer. Look at him going around ignoring the scandals and focusing on "carbon criminals". And promising to fix the problem without congress. Like most marxist, has zero economic IQ but scores very high on the party line. I'd like to thank those of you who voted for the fraud knowing it will take a generation of suffering to extract the country from your decision to impoverish us and spread the poverty around evenly.

I think his numbers are still to elevated for the pathetic job he and his crazy administration is doing. It should be zero.

The blacks don't want to rip a "brotha". The Latins know that he's the way the extended family gets in and they take over the country.

At an all time low.....and yet, he is going de-carbonize us without congresses approval via exec orders. Mexicanize us with new D voters. Come to think of it, I see no reason for another election, he will not have had time to cure cancer and why not just ignore the trivial formality and stay put. There is much to destroy.

climate change defined.

the American citizens disapprove by 70% in which direction the country is headed.

for you math challenged folk, that is 7 out of 10 disapprove.

the climate to protect our borders, abolish the IRS, repeal Obamacare, build the Keystone pipeline, add American jobs, and cut 1 trillion dollars a year from federal expenditure that Obama adds each year.

the climate has changed, and if Washington can't force fantasy immigration reform through, then the progressives will be run out of town on a rail.

if they succeed, then a generation of people holding their hands out rule.

Slavery returns in 2013 in America for anyone who works for income.

That is, if you have a job. I have to wonder how many of the clown college students, who voted for the idiot liberal, have graduated and are Sandwich Artists at Subway?

Forget the SAs@Subway. Think secession and a white homeland based on the red/blue counties of the 08 election. Said new American Republic will become what Putin predicted in the breakup of the USof A. Think about it: a system of governance not bent to accomodate a bunch of filthy parasites.

First off, The US Civil War has already been fought and the Confederacy thankfully lost. Another thing is that without northern Yankee ingenuity, northern established medical and high tech facilities and the immigrants to operate in them (many east Asian), the red states would collapse back a century or more if the red state yahoos decided on some anti intellectual ethnic pogram. Come to think of it, if the blue states withdrew their subsidies to the red states, the latter would collapse just as quicky. Insurance and banking rule and the red states aren't the headquarters of those either. It would be like Rome withdrawing its last legions from noprthern Europe and sending the latter into the Dark Ages (that was quite a contrast with say China in the same period, a culture which didn't collapse and bought civilization to neolithic Japan much as Rome did to the similarly primitive Germanic tribes).

Don't produce anything.

The red states have most of the manufacturing, most of the mineral resources.

If the red counties bailed from the country, the coastal blue region would fail in days when we cut your oil off and export to China instead.

Not to mention that without blue state environmentalists, our economies would boom.
