" Are you better off than you were 4 years ago ?"

Data from Gallup polling tells the tale of what the 2012 election scene looks like.

My daughter was asking questions about the election and I put this question to her:

" If you lost a job or your home over the last three years, or someone in your family or among your good friends lost a home or a job, would you vote for more of the same ?" It is as simple as that. For the past three years we have listened to the Simpleton from Chicago blame everybody else and not taken responsibility for his lack of ability to make a difference. Inflation is up and the cost of living is hurting a lot of people.

It comes down to the question Ronald Reagan put to the Voters:

" Are you better off than you were 4 years ago ?"

This polling gives you the answer.

Gallup state numbers predict huge Obama loss
by Conn Carroll Senior Editorial Writer
Washington Examiner

Gallup released their annual state-by-state presidential approval numbers yesterday, and the results should have 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue very worried. If President Obama carries only those states where he had a net positive approval rating in 2011 (e.g. Michigan where he is up 48 percent to 44 percent), Obama would lose the 2012 election to the Republican nominee 323 electoral votes to 215.

Gallup adds:

Overall, Obama averaged 44% job approval in his third year in office, down from 47% in his second year. His approval rating declined from 2010 to 2011 in most states, with Wyoming, Connecticut, and Maine showing a marginal increase, and Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Jersey, Arizona, West Virginia, Michigan, and Georgia showing declines of less than a full percentage point. The greatest declines were in Hawaii, South Dakota, Nebraska, and New Mexico
