President Obama Gets a “C” Grade from Blue Virginia Readers

This (unscientific) poll was taken over the past few days, and includes only registered Blue Virginia readers who chose to respond. So, of course, take it with a huge grain of salt. With that, the average GPA is about 2.3, which is basically a “C” grade for President Obama so far. “F” votes outweighed “A” votes 5-2, while “C” and “D” votes trailed “B” votes by only a small margin, 39-32. So that’s where we’re at, just 2 years after RK was “Obama Cantral” in Virginia, when I’m confident that Obama would have gotten almost unanimous “A” ratings from our readers. What happened? For comparison purposes, Gallup has Obama’s approval rating about flat for the past year (it was 47%-46% on December 9, 2009).
