Idahoans have nation’s dimmest view of President Obama’s job performance

Gallup Polls is reporting today that Idahoans gave President Obama the lowest approval rating in the nation, at 27 percent, for the first half of 2011, even as the number of states where Obama's approval rating was 50 percent or higher jumped from 12 in 2010 to 16 in the first half of 2011. Overall, the president's approval rating is at 47 percent, the polling firm reported; you can see its full report here. Idaho's 27 percent approval rating of the president's performance falls well below the three next-lowest states, Wyoming, Utah and Oklahoma, which were tied at 32 percent.
