On September 10, 2011 I penned and posted a lengthy commentary
Commentary:Five States Of Our Great Nation Must Turn The Tide Of Obamanation In 2012
The road to economic recovery of our great nation all lead to a 5 points crossing of getting 270 electoral votes and ending the Obamanation.
Florida - 29 electoral votes
Ohio - 18 electoral votes
Virginia - 13 electoral votes
Michigan - 16 electoral votes
Wisconsin – 10 electoral votes
Total of 86 electoral votes in these great stakes states of campaign 2012.
All who aspire to travel the road to the White House in 2012 must convince the American voters who live along three national roadways of our nation
Five states along just three of our nation's highways are the path to the White House in 2012. The electoral math in 2012 is not only 270 but 94-75-29. The 5 states that were Obama blue in 2008 are now GOP red for the statehouses.
The 5 state rotary that leads to recovery road of 2012 will meet at the intersection of 2008 Obamanomics Dr and 1980 Reaganomics Avenue.
Why these 5 states are key to ending the Obamanation of liberalism and once again prove the addage that it takes a Carter to get a Reagan
On November 4, 2011 a poll conducted by USAToday Gallup is reporting that:
60 percent of swing state voters believe that their families aren’t better off than in 2008, compared to 37 percent who believe they are better off, according to a USA Today/Gallup survey of key battlegrounds.
By a margin of nearly 4 to 1, voters in swing states aren’t satisfied with the direction of the United States, an ominous sign for incumbents like the president.
The twelve swing states polled were Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. (Source: Politico)
One factor that should bolster the Republican nominee: Nine of the 12 swing states have GOP governors, including all four big industrialized states — Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — which modern Democratic presidential candidates traditionally target. (Source:USAToday)
On December 9, 2009 I posted on how the bluest of Midwest union states were trending red towards a GOP takeover of the statehouses and what this meant not only for the nation but for Obama in 2012.
On August 3, 2011 I posted on the very same key factor reported by USAToday in their poll taken 3 months later.
The states with the highest number of union participation in the nation also have the highest budget gaps as well as the highest approval ratings for Obama.
Will the 2010 election of Republican Governors in blue states point the way for defeat of Obama in 2012? Can Obama carry blue states with red statehouses?
Will 2012 be a referendum of Obamanomics in blue states with red statehouses?
November 4, 2011
Deep voter dissatisfaction with the economy threatens President Barack Obama and incumbents in a dozen swing states, according to new polling Friday.
Indeed, 60 percent of swing state voters believe that their families aren’t better off than in 2008, compared to 37 percent who believe they are better off, according to a USA Today/Gallup survey of key battlegrounds.
These figures show that there is particular distress in these swing states. In non-swing states, only 54 percent of respondents said they weren’t better off, while 44 percent said they were better off.
The feeling of stagnation or deterioration in the economy extends to a broader question: by a margin of nearly 4 to 1, voters in swing states aren’t satisfied with the direction of the United States, an ominous sign for incumbents like the president.
Republicans also carry an enthusiasm advantage into the 2012 election campaign. By more than 2 to 1 – 32 percent to 15 percent – Republicans in swing states are more likely than Democrats to say they are “extremely enthusiastic” about voting for president next year, a good indication of whether a party’s supporters will spend time door-knocking, volunteering, donating money and turning out on Election Day.
Meanwhile, a majority of swing state voters oppose the president’s health care reform overhaul, with 51 percent saying it was a “bad thing” it passed last year, compared to 38 percent who don’t think it was a bad thing.
Despite the economic troubles that many in swing states are experiencing, Obama continues to draw on strong bases support. By more than 3 to 1, non-white voters in swing states would support Obama over Romney.
However, men and white, non-Hispanic voters veer sharply in the other direction. Only about one-third of these two groups approve of Obama’s job performance.
The result of dissatisfaction in swing states is competitiveness in potential head-to-head matchups between Obama and other Republicans. Facing Mitt Romney among swing state voters, Obama currently trails by one point, 46 percent to 47 percent. The president leads Rick Perry among swing state voters by five points, 49 percent to 44 percent; and leads Herman Cain by three points, 48 percent to 45 percent.
The twelve swing states polled were Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania.Related Websites
