Report: Obama's Ratings Plunge in Blue States NY, Calif.

Wednesday, 24 Sep 2014 08:18 PM

Voters in two of the country's most reliably liberal states, New York and California, are giving President Barack Obama the poorest marks of his presidency, The Hill reports.

The president's approval rating in heavily Democratic New York sank to its lowest point, 39 percent, in a new Marist poll that mirrors his fading popularity on the other side of the country, in the blue stronghold of California, according to the Hill.

The Marist poll showed a 6 percent drop since July in the number of New Yorkers who said Obama is doing either an "excellent" or a "good job."

A Field poll earlier this month found only 45 percent of Californians praising the president's job performance — a 5 percentage-point drop from June, The Hill reported.

"The president has seen his support erode steadily throughout the summer as he grappled with a series of international crises," The Hill reports, adding that the New York poll may disappoint Democrats "who had hoped Obama could be an asset in New York during the home stretch of the midterm election campaign."
