November 27, 2013 - Obama Hits Historic Low In Ohio, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Clinton Tops Kasich, Ties Christie In 2016 Race
PDF format

President Barack Obama's job approval rating among Ohio voters is a negative 34 - 61 percent, his lowest score in any Quinnipiac University poll nationally or in any state, according to a poll released today.

President Obama's previous low in Ohio was a negative 40 - 57 percent in a June 26 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. His previous low in any state was a negative 36 - 59 percent in Colorado November 20.

Negative approval is 3 - 96 percent among Republicans and 30 - 64 percent among independent voters, while Democrats approve 69 - 25 percent.

Obama is not honest and trustworthy, Ohio voters say 57 - 39 percent, also his lowest score on honesty in any Quinnipiac University poll.

"President Barack Obama's popularity is at a record low in Ohio and the first time his approval rating has fallen below 40 percent in the state," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling institute. "This is a state considered to be a national bellwether where he got 51 percent of the vote, just 12 months ago. Only 30 percent of men, 38 percent of women and 27 percent of white voters, along with 83 percent of black voters, give him a thumbs up.

"Clearly much of the reason for the president's decline in Ohio is 'Obamacare.' Ohio voters oppose the Affordable Care Act 59 - 35 percent. Perhaps more significantly, voters say 45 - 16 percent they expect their own health care to be worse rather than better a year from now."

"If voters still feel that way about their own situation come November 2014, that is likely to create a political playing field beneficial for Republicans," Brown added. "Voters still blame the Republicans more for the government shutdown, but that issue's salience is being dwarfed by the opposition to 'Obamacare.'"

In an early look at the 2016 run for the White House, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets 42 percent to 41 percent for New Jersey Republican Gov. Christopher Christie in Ohio. Secretary Clinton tops Gov. John Kasich 49 - 38 percent and leads other Republicans:
  • 50 - 37 percent over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush;
  • 48 - 39 percent over U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida;
  • 50 - 40 percent over U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky;
  • 49 - 41 percent over U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.
  • 50 - 35 percent over U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.
Clinton would make a good president, Ohio voters say 54 - 40 percent, the best score of any contender measured here, followed by Christie 44 - 32 percent. No other candidate gets a positive score, with Kasich at a negative 32 - 49 percent.

"Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are the 2016 leaders to Ohio voters, locked in a statistical tie," Brown said. "Ms. Clinton easily defeats a bevy of other potential GOP aspirants. Interestingly, when voters are asked whether she would make a good president, more say yes, than say they would vote for her. Conversely, Vice President Joseph Biden is not presidential material in the eyes of Ohioans. Only 28 percent think he would be a good president.

"Votes are split 44 - 45 percent on whether Washington experience or experience outside the Beltway would help someone be a good president. Democrats, women and black voters say Washington experience is better, while Republicans, independents, men and white voters see it the other way."

From November 19 - 24, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,361 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
