Funny Thing About Those New Blue States, the Azure Washes Off Quick

Tom Jensen at Public Policy Polling observes:

Barack Obama now has a negative approval rating in every state he flipped from the Bush column to his in 2008. In each of those places his level of support is now in the 44-46% range. It’s probably a good thing he doesn’t have to run for reelection this year. He can only hope things start turning around for him once the midterms are in the rear view mirror, much as they did for Bill Clinton.

Maybe he can sign welfare reform. Oh wait, Obama opposed that.
