Field Poll: Obama’s approval rating drops 10 points in CA

July 23rd, 2013 | by Erica Felci | Comments

President Obama’s approval rating among Californians has taken a 10-point hit since February.

A Field Poll released today shows the Democrat’s approval rating is at 52 percent, down from the 62 percent recorded five months ago.

“The largest decline in Obama’s job appraisals is seen among segments of the California electorate that have historically given him high marks,” the Field Poll noted. “These include registered Democrats and non-partisans, women, and voters under age 40. Each show double-digit declines in approval from February.”

Throughout Obama’s time in the White House, California voters have “consistently viewed Obama favorably.”

“What’s changed is that 9 percent of all voters and 11 percent of rank-and-file Democrats who view Obama favorably now disapprove or are undecided about his job performance,” pollsters noted.
