Much has been made that Obama is struggling in key democratic states. What I noticed is that many of these states have unpopular democratic governors. Can the McCain Campaign make hay of that ?
The rogues gallery
Governor Corzine of New Jersey
Some 67 percent of registered voters answering a Fairleigh Dickinson-PublicMind survey say New Jersey is on the wrong track, a new high during Gov. Jon S. Corzine’s term.
Just under a third say Corzine is doing a good or excellent job, about the same number as in June.
Troubling Signs for Obama in Pennsylvania
Gov. Edward G. Rendell, a Democrat who backed Mrs. Clinton in the primary but is now hustling for Mr. Obama, indicated during the conference call Wednesday that these working-class voters were still proving elusive for Mr. Obama. He said the McCain campaign had misrepresented Mr. Obama’s economic plan and had “confused the electorate.”
Gov. Jennifer Granholm of Michigan
Lansing pollster Steve Mitchell said Granholm’s approval rating statewide will soar to 75% or higher if she ousts Kilpatrick. A Free Press-Local 4 poll last week showed only 37% of state voters approve of the job Granholm is doing.
Governor Christine Gregoire of Washington State
The incumbent(Christine Gregoire) is viewed favorably by 53% and unfavorably by 45%. Her numbers have changed little over the past month. In terms of her job performance, 44% of voters say she is doing a good or excellent job, while 31% say she is doing a poor job
