Barack Obama now has a negative approval rating in every state he flipped from the Bush column to his in 2008. In each of those places his level of support is now in the 44-46% range. It's probably a good thing he doesn't have to run for reelection this year. He can only hope things start turning around for him once the midterms are in the rear view mirror, much as they did for Bill Clinton.
Here's the state by state rundown:
-In Colorado a recent Rasmussen poll found his approval at 45/53. Research 2000 found his favorability at 46/47 in January.
-In Florida Rasmussen found his approval at 45/54 and Quinnipiac's latest found it at 45/49.
-In Indiana Rasmussen has his approval at 44/54 and Research 2000 finds his favorability at 46/49.
-In Iowa Rasmussen has him at 45/54, and the latest Des Moines Register poll put his approval at 46%, though I can't find the disapproval number anywhere.
-In Nevada Rasmussen finds his approval at 46/54. We found 44/52 in in January.
-In New Mexico we found his approval last week at 45/48.
