Obama Approval Continues To Slide In VA

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama's job approval continues a nine-month slide in Virginia, particularly his handling of the conflict in Syria.
    
A Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday showed that 52 percent of 1,405 registered Virginia voters disapprove of Obama's performance overall. That's a sharp drop for Obama from January, when 52 percent approved of his performance and only 44 percent disapproved.
    
But when asked specifically about his response to the alleged use of chemical weapons on Syrian civilians by that country's government, 54 percent disapproved.
    
Embattled Gov. Bob McDonnell's job approval remains low, but not as low as that of the General Assembly. Forty-six percent approved of McDonnell's performance to 36 percent who disapproved. Forty-two percent approved of the legislature's work while 41 percent did not.
