Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Approval Drops To Lowest Point Evah

Let’s get into the delicious details:

A year after President Barack Obama’s political honeymoon ended, his job approval rating has dropped to a negative 44 – 48 percent, his worst net score ever, and American voters say by a narrow 39 – 36 percent margin that they would vote for an unnamed Republican rather than President Obama in 2012, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Anti-incumbent sentiment slams both parties as voters disapprove 59 – 31 percent of the job Democrats are doing, and disapprove 59 – 29 percent of Republicans in Congress. But voters say 43 – 38 percent they would vote for a Republican in a generic Congressional race.

This compares to a 48 – 43 percent approval for Obama in a May 26 national poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and a 57 – 33 percent approval last July, just before the political firestorm created by opposition to his health care plan galvanized political opponents and turned independent voters against him.

In this latest survey of more than 2,000 voters, independent voters disapprove of Obama 52 – 38 percent and say 37 – 27 percent they would vote for a Republican contender in 2012.

 

American voters also say 48 – 40 percent Obama does not deserve reelection in 2012.

It’s all Bush’s fault.

 

 
 

Illegals In MA Get Discounts On Prescriptions, MBTA, Home Heating Assistance

And here we thought it was only free health insurance, dental, food and housing.

The free ride rolls on for Bay State illegal aliens who stand to score benefits, from prescription discounts to MBTA passes, even as Gov. Deval Patrick tempers his rhetoric on such taxpayer-funded perks during his re-election bid.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous that that is going on,” said Rep. James Miceli (D-Wilmington), who called the lax oversight a “slap in the face” to taxpayers.

Illegals applying for state services such as MBTA discounts for disabled passengers, The Ride, home heating assistance and cheaper prescription drugs for the elderly, aren’t even asked whether they are U.S. citizens

“That (citizenship) question – as a result of the recent change in the law – should now be on every application for state benefits, and if it’s not we need to legislatively correct that,” said state Sen. Steven A. Baddour (D-Methuen), who backed a recent push to bar state services for illegal immigrants. “Only those who are here legally should be benefiting from the system.”

[…]

The application for the Prescription Advantage Plan – which offers discounts on prescription drugs for the elderly – doesn’t even require a Social Security card. It asks for Social Security numbers, but alerts applicants that it is “voluntary.”
