Q: Do you approve or disapprove of the job Christine Gregoire is doing as Governor?
A whopping 72% of 18-34 year-olds disapprove, as do 41% of Democrats.
Absolutely disastrous, but also not surprising considering Gregoire has continued to encourage tax increases (put forth by Dems in the state legislature) on Washingtonians in the middle of this recession.
Looking at the overall state legislature, which is controlled entirely by Democrats (63-35 in the House, 32-17 in the Senate), just 20% of Washingtonians approve, while 69% disapprove.
U.S. Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell are at 42% and 38%, respectfully.
Oh, and by the way, President Obama’s approval rating in WA is now at 46%, an all-time low for him in the state.
You think we’re fed up with Democrats in this state? I’d say so. I’m very much looking forward to November, when we’ll be able to start turning the tide back against them.
