PPIC  Statewide Survey (California)

APPROVAL RATINGS OF FEDERAL ELECTED OFFICIALS

Quote
President Obama’s approval rating has rebounded to 60 percent among Californians. The last time his approval was at this level was in July 2013 (61%). Approval has increased 11 points since October 2014 (49%), and is also higher than last January (53%). In a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, 46 percent of adults nationwide approved of President Obama. In our survey, 50 percent of likely voters approve and 48 percent disapprove of the president. His approval rating is 80 percent among Democrats, 50 percent among independents,
and 13 percent among Republicans. Majorities of men (62%) and women (58%), as well as Californians across age and education groups approve of the president. An overwhelming
majority of Latinos (75%) approve of the president, compared to 42 percent of whites. (Our final day of interviewing took place the night of the president’s State of the Union address.)
The approval rating of the newly elected Congress is at 38 percent. Approval of the U.S. Congress has increased 14 points since October 2014 (24%) and is higher than last January (26%). Approval of the U.S. Congress after the last presidential election was 34 percent (January 2013). Among adults nationwide in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 16 percent approved of the U.S. Congress. One in four California likely voters (24%) approve of Congress. Similar shares of Democrats (27%), Republicans (30%), and independents (31%) approve. Latinos (53%) are far more likely than whites (23%) to express approval of the U.S. Congress. Approval declines as age and income levels increase.

...California is no microcosm of America. At this point, it is nearly impossible to say what a 'likely voter of 2016' is.

PPP still had Presidential approval at 42% in Pennsylvania.

President Barack Obama has negative approval ratings in the key swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, but voters in each state strongly support his call to raise taxes on the rich to help the middle class, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today.

Voters in each state want the next president to "change direction from Barack Obama's policies," the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. The Swing State Poll focuses on Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania because since 1960 no candidate has won the presidential race without taking at least two of these three states.

The president's approval ratings are:

    Negative 46 - 49 percent in Florida;
    Negative 42 - 53 percent in Ohio;
    Negative 44 - 53 percent in Pennsylvania.

Wow! If that's Georgia, then all that stops President Obama from having a Third Term is the pesky 22nd Amendment.

Why are his approval ratings kinda low in ohio

Governing and legislating are very different from campaign mode. Politicians can rarely please everyone when they govern or legislate. Political change typically happens when it has just-over-majority support in a mature democracy. A people who recently overthrew a military dictatorship or a commie regime may be very happy with the meeting of political and economic desires long suppressed. After Pinochet or Honecker, people can be very happy with huge change.

52% of the people are likely to approve of legislation or new policies that imply change, and 47% are going to dislike it. Some of those changes are going to offends entrenched interests who begin loud, strident campaigns to return to the old way of doing things.

It could be that America is extremely polarized between people who want a Christian and Corporate State that endorses a traditional morality in return for inequality characteristic of a plantation... and people who would rather emigrate than endure such. 

... North Carolina gets polled a lot -- and just about every politician, current or recent, is unpopular. Are we too fussy? Are we simply unable to get what we want?
