Q Poll: President Barack Obama's lowest job approval in Florida ever; GOP leads in gov race

President Barack Obama's job approval is a negative 40 to 54 percent -- his lowest point ever in Florida and down from a 50 -45 percent approval rating April 19 -- after his call for increased offshore drilling.

The Gulf spill "almost certainly" is responsible for Obama's sinking rating, said pollster Peter Brown. "Voters disapprove 54 -37 percent of the way Obama is handling the spill."

The Quinnipiac University poll also found both Bill McCollum 42- 34 percent and Rick Scott 42-32 percent leading Democrat Alex Sink in the race for governor. A three-way with independent Bud Chiles "scrambles the race considerably" -- but was tested only after Chiles announced his candidacy and has a larger sampling error than the rest of the poll.

Racism and the Right Wing Echo Chamber

The only part of the country where Obama has polled consistently low is in the still-racist South. Subtract the South from the equation and he's still getting good marks. If the Bush Petroleum Disaster is being blamed on Obama, when it was Oil King George that granted BP the waiver for a disaster plan, then I guess the Right Wing Echo Chamber is performing it's intended purpose - to mislead the voters. In fact, it's doing remarkably well considering we are still in the middle of the Reagan-Bush Depression of 2008, Republicans have done nothing but obstruct Democrats' plans for recovery while offering no solutions of their own, and yet it seems they have orchestrated a wave of disapproval towards the left. If Republicans and their Bagger friends are ever successful in re-taking our government, you and I and all the idiots that voted for them are going to witness the end of the middle class, and the final days of democracy in the USA.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE ELECT A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER WITH NO EXECUTIVE OR JOB EXPERIENCE AS PRESIDENT. OBAMA DOESN'T HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TO MANAGE THE OBAMA OIL SPILL AND IT SHOWS. HIS PLAN IS TO SPREAD THE OIL AROUND LIKE HIS PLAN TO SPREAD THE WEALTH AROUND. HE GOES ON VACATION AND IS CONSTANTLY AT PARTIES AND FUNDRAISERS RATHER THAN DOING HIS JOB AND STOP THE LEAK AND SKIM THE OIL.

P.S I'M A DISGUSTING SHILL KNOWN AS MCTOADY AND YOU CAN CATCH MY OTHER FASCIST RANTS OVER ON "THE BUZZ" - I GET PAID BY BP TO POST MY LIES THERRE TOO!

AS AN EMPLOYEE OF THE VAST RIGHT WING ECHO CHAMBER THAT 7:35 REFERS TO IN HIS POST, I'D LIKE TO REMIND HIM THAT IT WON'T DO ANY GOOD TO EXPOSE OUR PLANS. THE RIGHT HAS ALREADY RECRUITED ALL THE RACISTS AND KOOL-AID DRINKING NUTS AND THEY DON'T HAVE ANY CONSCIENCE. THE SENSIBLE AND HONEST FOLKS HAVE ALREADY JOINED THE DEMOCRATS. IN FACT, ONCE THE GOP REALIZES THAT THEY HAVE COMPLETELY POLARIZED OUR NATION INTO GOOD AND EVIL, I'LL BE OUT OF A JOB!

Alice, you are an idiot. Why broadcast it?

Obama is reaping all the f***ups from the Bush Administration.

From the economy to lax regulation and so on and so on, Obama is one president who inherited one of the worst multiple messes in history.

And, yes, we are still the good ole boy, redneck racist South. Makes me want to puke.

This long ago North East transplant shakes her head at the fact that this state seems to think progressive is a bad word and runs fast in the other direction, trying to find the 18th century on its way.

Republicans spent 10 years weakening safety regulations and the power of government to regulate, making government small and without authority, and now they are surprised??? Republicans, morally all this is your fault! You got what you feverishly worked for 10 years, and you are still working to keep the liability of oil companies low...Hypocrates and Liars!!!
