The GOP May Finally Fall In Love With Obama

The GOP May Finally Fall In Love With Obama

A new poll suggests that President Barack Obama could be a key asset to the GOP in the 2014 midterm elections as likely voters report that the President’s failures make them more likely to vote for Republicans.

In polling data out from McClatchy, voters say that the President makes them more likely to select Republican candidates by a 42-32 percent margin.

The increasing dissatisfaction with Obama’s handling of his job has helped Republicans to win the generic ballot measure for the first time by a margin of 43 to 38 percent. One analyst told the newspaper that the numbers hint that the Democratic Party is “sputtering.”

As foreign policy becomes increasingly problematic for the President, just 40 percent of respondents approved of how the Obama is handling his job.

McClatchy reports:

Foreign crises are helping to drive down Obama’s standing.

Just 30 percent approve of the way he’s handling the conflict between Israel and Hamas, while 55 percent disapprove. The numbers are worse among independents: 24-60 percent.

Also, just 32 percent approve the way he’s handling the turmoil in Ukraine, while 51 percent disapprove. Independents approve by 24-54 percent.

Politically coveted independent voters expressed the greatest level of dissatisfaction with the President. They reported that they would vote for GOP candidates by a margin of 40 percent to 26 percent. A healthy majority of independents said Obama is doing a poor job on both the economy and foreign policy.
