Obama now a 40 percent president?
It's the last frantic day before Election Day 2009 and the question on everybody's mind in the nation's capitol is simple – What will tomorrow's results indicate about the political status of President Obama and the Democratic majority in charge of Congress?
Republican pollster Brad O'Leary took at a look at the latest data on the Virginia and New Jersy gubernatorial races, plus the NY-23 special congressional election in upstate New York and offered the following possibility:
“New York’s 23rd is a high priority for the White House, and still the Democrats can’t top 35% in that race. And it’s looking like the Democrats’ gubernatorial candidates in Virginia and New Jersey won’t top 40%. This shows that Obama’s new level of support among all American voters may be about 40%. Americans are definitely hungry for change, but it isn’t the brand of change Obama is selling.”
Tuesday will tell the tale.
