A State of the States analysis by the polling outfit Gallup shows President Barack Obama is widely unpopular in New Hampshire … and growing more so over time.
According to the analysis, Obama’s average approval rating in New Hampshire was only 38.7% in 2011. That’s down from an average of 41.3% in 2010.
An average of 54.4% viewed the President unfavorably in New Hampshire during 2011.
Obama won New Hampshire in 2008 over Republican John McCain.
“These results are based on Gallup Daily tracking data from 2011, which include interviews with just under 180,000 U.S. residents and no fewer than 500 residents in any state (the sample for the District of Columbia was 356),” according to Gallup. “State samples are weighted so they are demographically representative of the population of each state.”
