Virginia voters’ attitudes about Barack Obama’s job performance have soured, according to results of a Democratic polling outfit’s recent survey which suggests more people now rate the president negatively.
Public Policy Polling found that 48 percent of Virginia voters disapprove of Obama’s job performance, while 47 percent approve of it.
While that’s a slim difference, it represents a significant decline from the 51-44 percent positive margin PPP reported Obama had after Osama bin Laden’s death.
In 2006, it was 43% Democrat, 38% Republican, 19% independent.In 2008, it was 44% Democrat, 37% Republican, 18% independent.And what does PPP predict the partisan makeup of the electorate will be in 2010? 48% Democrat (!), 41% Republican, 11% independent. Color me skeptical that Pennsylvania Democrats will hold a 48% to 41% edge over Republicans in 2010.
