A new Rasmussen poll shows that Republicans continue to lead the Generic Congressional Ballot. They lead by two points last week, and now lead by three, 41%-38%.
Republican candidates lead Democrats for the second straight week in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 41% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 38% would choose the Democratic candidate.
Support for the GOP remains unchanged this week – at its highest level over the past year, but support for Democrats dropped one point to tie its lowest level in the same time period.
Obama’s approval ratings are dropping like a rock in Ohio, according to a new Quinnipiac poll:
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.
By a small 48 – 46 percent margin, voters disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy, the independent Quinnipiac University poll finds. This is down from a 57 – 36 percent approval May 6. A total of 66 percent of Ohio voters are “somewhat dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied” with the way things are going in the state, while 33 percent are “very satisfied” or “somewhat satisfied,” numbers that haven’t changed since Obama was elected.
Finally, also from Rasmussen:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 33% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –3. Those figures reflect the highest level of strong disapproval measured to date and the lowest level recorded for the overall Approval Index (see trends).
Rasmussen also has Obama’s overall approval rating at 52%, its lowest figure to date.
