The Gov’s former state seems to retain a lot of love for the man.
He left with a dismal 34% approval rating.
And the sentiment driving all that love seems to just be picking up steam…..
He must have done a wonderful job of governing. (I like how they say that Obama is “edging” Romney by a 64-32% margin)
Looks like Romneycare/Obamacare was his greatest accomplishment.
SPRINGFIELD – Although President Barack Obama is expected to defeat Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in Massachusetts this November, the margin by which the incumbent is edging the one-term Bay State governor is growing, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
A survey by the Western New England University Polling Institute through a partnership with The Republican and MassLive.com revealed that Obama is now edging Romney, 64-32 percent, among registered voters and by 22 points, 60-38 percent, among likely voters.
In late May, the last time the university conducted a political poll, Obama led with registered voters 56-34 percent. At the time, likely voters weren’t distinguished since the November election was more than five months away.
While Obama’s favorable/unfavorable ratio has become more positive since the previous poll, Romney’s popularity has dropped overall, according to the survey.
Obama’s present favorable/unfavorable ranking is 64-29 among registered voters compared to 57-33 percent in May. Romney’s ratio, on the other hand, is now 31-60 percent compared to 36-50 percent in May.
Additionally, the president’s job approval rating has grown to 60 percent among registered voters in Massachusetts, compared to 54 percent in May. His positive job approval number among likely voters is 57 percent, the poll concluded.
