Obama Approval Rating at All-Time Low in Key State

A Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday indicates that 53 percent of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of the job the president's doing in the White House, with 42 percent saying they approve of how Obama's handling his duties. Politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com

The finding represents a sharp decline in the president's standing in the Keystone State. Quinnipiac's last poll in Pennsylvania, taken just nine weeks ago in mid-February, showed 51 percent of voters approved of the job President Obama is doing, while 44 percent disapproved. Realclearpolitics.com

Obama's 89-9 percent disapproval among Republicans is up from 80-15 percent disapproval in February. Democrats back him 76-18 percent, compared to 81-14 percent in February. Newsmax.com

Obama, who carried Pennsylvania 55-44 percent in the 2008 election, is underwater mostly because of his deterioration among independent voters, who disapprove of his performance 57-37 percent, compared to 50-46 percent approval in February. Newsmax.com

Pennsylvania voters appear particularly weary of America's military engagements. Sixty four percent said we "should not be involved" in the war in Afghanistan, while an even larger majority -- 68 percent -- said the same thing about our engagement in Libya. Realclearpolitics.com

In 2008, Obama carried Pennsylvania by a comfortable 11-point margin over John McCain, 55 to 44. Realclearpolitics.com

Pennsylvania's considered a battleground or swing state. Democratic Sen. John Kerry carried it by three points in his 2004 election loss to President George W. Bush. Kitv.com

Republicans had a strong showing in the state in last year's midterm elections, grabbing back the governor's office, a U.S. Senate seat and five House seats held by Democrats. Kitv.com

A recent poll by the polling organization Gallup has revealed no president in recent decades had polarized the American public in their second year as much as Barack Obama. Gallup.com
