Obama’s approval in Ohio drops to record low

President Obama’s approval rating in Ohio has dropped to the lowest of his presidency in Quinnipiac polling.

Obama’s 34-percent approval rating in the battleground state is the lowest the polling group has recorded in any state during his presidency. Sixty-one percent of Ohioans disapprove of the president, according to the poll released Wednesday.

Another 57 percent said Obama is not honest or trustworthy.

Obama’s approval rating has been dragged down nationally in recent months as the administration has battled headlines about the botched rollout of his signature healthcare law. Fifty-eight percent in the state oppose the law.

Earlier this month, Quinnipiac found Obama’s approval rating nationally stood at 39 percent.

The Ohio poll broke Obama’s previous record low, which had stood at 36 percent in Colorado only a week earlier.

Obama’s support in the Buckeye State stands at 30 percent with independents, 30 percent with men, 38 percent with women, and 27 percent with white voters. Democrats give him a 69 percent approval rating, while black voters give him an 83 percent approval.

His approval among Republicans is 3 percent, nearly inside the margin of error.
