Oregonians Split on Approval/Disapproval of Obama
After giving Obama an almost 16% electoral spread in 2008*, support has fallen significantly. Currently only 47% of Oregonians approve of the President's job performance while an equal 47% disapprove. Six percent are not sure.
A good guess is that the falling approval rate has something to do with Oregon's 7th highest unemployment rate in the nation--with no respite in sight.
If Oregon becomes a toss up state, that's not good news for Democrats or the Left.
*2008 Oregon election results:
Obama - 54.7%
McCain - 39.2%
