This poll, out of New York, illuminates the mindset of the East Coast liberal quite nicely:
A stunning new survey gives the president a negative approval rating in the Empire State for the first time, with just 45 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval among voters, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.
In the 2008 presidential election, Obama carried New York with 63 percent of the vote.
The poll of 1,640 registered voters was conducted from Aug. 3-8, just after Congress approved the hard-fought debt legislation and before this week's market mayhem on Wall Street.
But according to Quinnipiac, Obama in his re-election bid next year would still take 49 percent of the vote in New York state versus a generic GOP challenger's 34 percent.
So even the diehard partisan have come to the conclusion that Obama's doing a miserable job as president. And yet, rather than even consider a Republican nominee, they'll stick by their colossal failure, despite the fact they know in their gut he is leading us to ruination.
And liberals claim that they're the ones with "flexible mindsets"? Hardly, all we can do is pray there are enough of us to overcome their dogmatic desire to destroy the nation rather than admit that possibly, maybe, somehow, they might have been wrong...
