Quinnipiac Poll: President Obama’s Approval Rating Stuck at 42%
The latest Quinnipiac poll revealed that his approval rating in Pennsylvania is 42% compared to the 54% that disapprove.
This is only a small improvement from the 41% approval rating from their last survey taken in August.
Not surprisingly, Obama garners much more approval from the Democrats, with 79% percent, than with the Republicans, with a measly 9%.
There is also a fairly large difference in approval ratings regarding gender. While women are pretty evenly split, with 45% approving and 51% disapproving, men show a much greater disparity with 39% approving and 57% disapproving.
Interestingly, there are vastly different results among those with varying levels of education. While 52% of those with a college degree support Obama, 56% of those without one are disapproving.
Obama’s approval rating is fairly steady across the board when looking at the different ages, with the biggest gap being of those between the ages of 35-49, in which 41% approve and 58% disapprove.
This survey was conducted by Quinnipiac University using live interviewers calling land lines and cell phones from September 25th to October 5th. They contacted 1,049 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
