One year after a speech at CMU, Pittsburghers still think Obama is failing on the economy.
HARRISBURG — The Republican Party of Pennsylvania released a web video today called “One Year Later” regarding President Obama’s visit to Pittsburgh. Chairman Rob Gleason issued the following statement:
“Nearly one year ago, President Obama spoke at Carnegie Mellon University to defend his administration’s poor handling of the economy. We took to the streets and found that with high unemployment and gas at nearly $4 a gallon, Pittsburgh residents don’t believe that the economy has gone in right direction since President Obama took office. It’s becoming clearer every day: President Obama can’t keep his job if millions of Americans continue to lose theirs,” Chairman Rob Gleason said.
According to a poll conducted in June of 2011 by Pennsylvania-based Susquehanna Polling and Research, 48% of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of the job that President Obama is doing versus only 41% who approve. 50% believe that it’s time to give a new person a chance, versus only 44% who say that Obama should be reelected.
