Obama's Rating in Free Fall..........
Obama's Approval Rating in Ohio Down to 49 Percent; 44 Percent Disapprove
Quinnipiac's poll in Ohio out this morning has some eyebrow-raising numbers: "President Barack Obama gets a lackluster 49 – 44 percent approval rating in Ohio, considered by many to be the most important swing state in a presidential election, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. This is President Obama’s lowest approval rating in any national or statewide Quinnipiac University poll since he was inaugurated and is down from 62 – 31 percent in a May 6 survey."
The poll also notes that the two Democratic possibilities in the 2010 Senate race — Lee Fisher and Jennifer Brunner — beat both the Republican possibilities in the Senate race, former U.S. Rep. Rob Portman and car dealer Tom Ganley. Having said that, nobody polls above 37 percent in any of those hypothetical matchups, and no one is below 30 percent, so there are still a lot of undecideds, not yet thinking that hard about a Senate race that's more than a year away.
