Fore!… Plurality of Voters in New Jersey & Large Majority in Florida Say Obama Does Not Deserve Reelection
A plurality of New Jersey voters say Obama does not deserve a second term.
The Hill reported:
The majority of voters in New Jersey say President Obama does not deserve a second term, according to a new Rutgers poll.
Only 43 percent of New Jersey voters in the poll said Obama deserves to be reelected, while 47 percent said he deserves to be voted out of office.
Those findings are a troubling sign for Obama, since New Jersey has traditionally been a stronghold for Democrats. In an earlier Rutgers poll taken in February, only 39 percent of New Jersey voters said he did not deserve reelection.
The poll comes on the heels of a Quinnipiac poll last week that showed New Jersey voters disapprove of Obama’s job performance by a 52 percent to 44 percent margin, the president’s lowest score ever in the state.
Things aren’t any better in Florida…
A newly-released public opinion survey from Magellan Data & Mapping Strategies finds that Florida voters are unhappy with Barack Obama and do not think he should be re-elected.
