Obama's poll numbers plummet in Ohio

A pro-family activist and head of an Ohio-based political action committee says it is amazing how President's Obama's poll numbers in the Buckeye State have reached an all-time low.

"What it says is people are upset with Obama," says Phil Burress, pointing to a recent Quinnipiac University survey that showed just 40 percent of Ohio voters gave President Obama a positive rating, while 57 percent disapproved of the president.

The poll said that since December, the president lost 10 points among Democrats and 17 points among independents. And in another telling statistic, Obama went from a 20-point approval margin among women to a 9-point disapproval margin.

The survey was the first taken in the Buckeye State since news of the IRS and NSA scandals broke.

"The Republicans should stay away from his positions are far as they can get, and start taking advantage of it and doing the right thing," says Burress, chairman of the Citizens for Community Values Action PAC.

Burress believes that Ohio Governor John Kasich is one Republican who is moving in that direction, judging by another new Quinnipiac poll that showed him with a record 54-percent approval rating, with only 32 percent not liking his job performance.

Burress says the governor recently stood up for the state's marriage amendment. 

"They were going to try to repeal the marriage amendment here in 2013, which they decided not to do," recalls Burress. "But John Kasich came out and said he was for marriage between one and one woman."

Burress says the Ohio governor is also trying to reduce spending.

"He's doing the best he can," says the PAC chairman. "He's not 100-percent approval rating as far as Republican policies, but he's doing very, very well."

And voters, by a 49- to 37-percent margin, say Kasich - who plans to run for re-election next year - deserves another term.
