LOS ANGELES (AP) — A new Field Poll shows President Barack Obama is regaining his political footing in California.

The survey released Thursday shows that 51 percent of California’s registered voters are inclined to re-elect him to a second term, up from 45 percent in November. The percentage of those who say they would not re-elect him has dropped from 44 percent to 41 percent.

For the first time since June, a majority of voters — 53 percent — say they approve of the job he is doing.

Obama also fares well against the Republican presidential contenders in theoretical matchups, leading each by at least 20 percentage points.

The random telephone survey of 1,003 registered voters was conducted Feb. 2-18. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

    Who the heck did they ask? When you are rich you can afford to be liberal, and when you are poor you vote for them to keep your handout coming. All the rest of us who work(and pay everyone elses bills) are getting sick of this guy’s empty promises.He’s done nothing but stick it to the middle class since the day he took office. Come to think of it, that pretty much applies to every democrat.

        Are you kidding Proud?? You are trying thinking again?? If someone expresses an opinion – why call names? Why not explain the empty promises. He is not cleaning up anything Bush did..he’s adding to the mess with another $10 trillion to the debt. Do you even live in the United States?

        Can liberals ever rationally discuss issues and refrain from using personal ad hominem attacks such as name calling!!

  2. The Mad Man says:

    Wow, more YELLOW JOURNALISM in favor of Obama?

  3. Lew says:

    Of course California voters would re-elect Obama. This state is so full of pinheads who have all drinken the coolaide. This state looks more like Greece than any other and the folks in SAC think that the only way to get out of trouble is to raise taxes and beat up those that have tried to generate private sector jobs.

      Remember, they are the ones who elected Kamala Harris – the D.A. for San Francisco who didn’t think holding illegal aliens gang bangers for ICE to deport was a nice thing..you know those illegal alien gang bangers have feelings…and what’s even more unreal is this witch with b never even called the bologna family to express her condolences after one such illegal alien gang banger she got back on the street murdered all of the Bologna family.

      So true. Thats why I won’t vote Democrat again. Obama had my last vote, but not this time. Its over.

      And as much as I think he’s an intelligent decent man, its just not going to happen.
