Two Obama Administration initiatives, improving health care and foreign policy, have played a roll in the President’s lower approval rating within his own party in Pennsylvania.
Dr. Terry Madonna, Director of the Franklin and Marshall College poll, says more than half of the democratic voters in Pennsylvania give President Obama a strong approval rating, but his overall numbers have not been as high.
“That’s largely because of the debate over the Affordable Care Act, the implementation of it. I think it also has to do with the myriad of foreign policy questions that he’s grappling with.”
While 58 percent of Pa. democrats give him a favorable rating, that's down four points from the last poll. Madonna is a frequent guest on WNPV radio.
