Idaho Gives Obama Lowest Rating

President Barack Obama is least popular in Idaho than any other state in the nation a new Gallup poll shows. Only 27 percent of Idahoans approve of the job Obama’s doing. In Wyoming, Oklahoma and Utah 32 percent approve and in West Virginia and Arkansas it's 33 percent. Read the entire Gallup poll. It is not a surprise and it shows just how hard it will be for Idaho Democrats to make gains in the 2012 election. Presidential election years are never good for Democrats in Idaho but this one could be even tougher/Rocky Barker, Statesman. More here.

Question: Any guesses (before looking) re: who gave President Obama his highest rating?
