Obama above 50% in only 10 states
This does not look like a good start for Obama. Some of the states at the bottom of the approval charts are states in the Mountain West where Obama thinks he has to win. Even California is a state where he barely makes 50 percent.In 10 states plus the District of Columbia, a majority of residents approved of the job Barack Obama was doing as president last year, according to aggregated data from 2011. His greatest support came from District of Columbia, Maryland, and Hawaii residents, while Utah and Idaho residents gave him his lowest levels of support -- below 30%.
