Netroots Straw Poll Shows Obama Still Strong
Despite their grousing about the administration during the Netroots Nation conference, liberal activists and bloggers are relatively happy with President Barack Obama’s performance.
A straw poll conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research showed that 80 percent either approve or strongly approve of the president more than a year before voters head to the polls to decide whether he deserves a second term. The results broke down to 27 percent strongly approving of Obama and 53 percent approving “somewhat.” Thirteen percent said they “somewhat disapprove,” and 7 percent strongly disapprove of the president.
The Nutroots are the most rabid Obots on the planet. If 20 percent of them disapprove of him he is in deep doo-doo.
Not only that but only 27 percent “strongly approve.” That demonstrates a big enthusiasm gap compared to 2008.
