President Obama’s biggest fan base for 2012 hailed from Hawaii and the District of Columbia, according to just-released poll figures from Gallup.
In Hawaii, Mr. Obama’s approval hit above 82 percent; in the District, above 64 percent. And in 14 other states, the president was applauded for his performance by the majority of respondents.
But that 14-state approval rating is actually a drop, Gallup found.
“That compares with the 26 states and the District of Columbia he won in the 2012 presidential election,” Gallup reported.
Mr. Obama’s national approval rating for 2012 averaged 48 percent, Gallup reports.
Among his biggest detractors for 2012: Utah, Wyoming, Alaska, West Virginia and North Dakota, where his approval rating ranged from 28 percent to 33 percent, Gallup said.
