September 19, 2013 - Syria Pulls Obama Approval Down In Virginia, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Clinton, Christie Tied In 2016 White House Run
PDF format

Virginia voters disapprove 54 - 38 percent of the way President Barack Obama is handling the situation in Syria, and disapprove of the job he is doing overall 52 - 44 percent, his lowest Virginia job approval in two years, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

This compares to President Obama's split 48 - 48 percent job approval in an August 22 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, and is his lowest score in Virginia since a 51 - 42 percent disapproval on December 21, 2011.

Approval is 86 - 9 percent among Democrats, but disapproval is 91 - 7 percent among Republicans and 57 - 37 percent among independent voters. Women are divided 48 - 47 percent while men disapprove 57 - 40 percent. White voters disapprove 63 - 33 percent as black voters approve 82 - 13 percent.

Virginia voters oppose 63 - 29 percent using cruise missiles to attack Syria in response to reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons. Even voters in military households oppose U.S. action 63 - 30 percent.

Voters support 72 - 18 percent, including 72 - 18 percent in military households, averting a U.S. military strike by having international monitors take control of Syrian chemical weapons. Support is strong among every group measured.

"President Barack Obama's job approval in Virginia is dropping into negative territory again with the controversy over what, if anything, the United States should do in Syria almost certainly a major reason," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "As has been the case during his presidency, when the president's overall approval is underwater, the driving force is independents moving out of his column. In this survey, Virginia independents give him a thumbs down by 20 percentage points. On handling Syria, independents disapprove almost 2-1."

Virginia voters approve 46 - 36 percent of the job Gov. Bob McDonnell is doing, little changed from the governor's 47 - 39 percent approval rating August 22.

Approval is 69 - 15 percent among Republicans and 46 - 38 percent among independent voters, while Democrats disapprove 55 - 23 percent.

The racial gap is larger than the gender gap as women approve 42 - 37 percent, compared to 50 - 35 percent for men. White voters approve 51 - 35 percent while black voters disapprove 42 - 27 percent.

"Virginia voters' view of their governor is mixed, with a 32 - 32 percent favorability," Brown said. "Yet they continue to give him a positive job approval and one that is higher than some of his colleagues around the country who are not embroiled in controversy or being investigated for potential wrongdoing." 2016 Presidential Race

In an early look at the 2016 White House race in Virginia, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gets 42 percent, with 41 percent for New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie, the Republican. Both candidates receive overwhelming party support, but independent voters back Christie 43 - 36 percent. Men back Christie 46 - 36 percent, while women back Clinton 49 - 36 percent.

Clinton tops U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky 49 - 40 percent.

Gov. Christie beats Vice President Joseph Biden 47 - 35 percent.

Sen. Paul gets 43 percent to Vice President Biden's 42 percent.

Christie has the best favorability rating among Virginia voters, 55 - 19 percent, with 53 - 42 percent for Clinton, 44 - 46 percent for Biden and 38 - 33 percent for Paul.

"Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is neck and neck with New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie, but the governor comes out better when voters are asked to rate the two candidates on favorability," Brown said. "The reason is that he has an unusually low unfavorability rating for someone as well-known as he has become."

From September 9 - 15, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,405 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.6 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, Colorado, Iowa and the nation as a public service and for research.
