Obama Approval Rating

Jon McHenry, April 11
Jon McHenry's comment in the Washington Times regarding President Obama's approval rating and the Supreme Court vacancy: Republican pollster Jon McHenry of North Star Opinion Research said he doubts the Supreme Court nomination is a factor in Mr. Obama's improved position. "I suspect it's just [Mr. Obama] being out of the spotlight and others on both sides being the partisan fighters," Mr. McHenry said. Jon McHenry, October 17 Jon McHenry's comments on the political effect of President Obama's Ebola response in the Washington Times: "It's pretty clear that the best politics is to do a travel ban," said Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Opinion Research in Alexandria, Virginia. "In that sense, the president, regardless of what's going on behind scenes, seems to be detached and inactive on another situation that people care about. This is yet another case that seems to show a lack of leadership on his part." ... The Ebola infections and the CDC's missteps are keeping the news story alive and making it difficult for Democratic candidates to talk about topics other than the administration's apparent incompetence, Mr. McHenry said. "It's another issue on which Democrats are having to defend the president or turn around and attack the country's response on this," he said. "At a time when they want to be talking about almost anything else, they're talking about the administration again." He added, "It reinforces a pattern of what people believe that they're seeing - a lack of leadership, a lack of engagement. Whether it's being slow to react in Ukraine, slow to react in Syria with [the Islamic State], he charitably has a very deliberate approach but, being less charitable, seems to not put the sense of urgency on issues that voters want him to have." How the crisis plays out politically might well depend on whether any more cases of Ebola surface in the U.S., Mr. McHenry said. "If someone in Ohio winds up getting this, then it's going to look like a pandemic to the public," he said.

Jon McHenry, February 3
February 3, 2014 by Jon McHenry Jon McHenry's comments in the Washington Times regarding President Obama's plans to increase the use of executive orders: "I think what it does is fire up Republicans to turn out to make sure they put in a Senate majority that can stop Obama," said Republican pollster Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Opinion Research in Alexandria, Va. "You're going to see Republicans all up in arms that Obama's going against the Constitution and trying to be a king and a dictator. Jon McHenry, October 1 Jon McHenry in The Washington Times on the politics for Republicans of a government shutdown: "The president has the microphone, and he generally has a sympathetic press that's going to echo what he says," said Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Strategies, a Republican polling firm. "There's a lot of peril for Republicans in this." ... And while there is little individual risk for those conservative lawmakers in pushing a shutdown, Mr. McHenry said there is collective risk for the House GOP's majority if a public backlash hurts moderate Republicans in swing districts. "At some point you have to decide if you want to be a Republican in the minority," Mr. McHenry said. "Safe as your seat might be, that doesn't mean you that guaranteed a majority going forward. A lot of those folks haven't been in the minority. You can't stop Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi with 200 Republicans in the House and 40 Republicans in the Senate." ... Mr. McHenry said that although Mr. Obama's job-approval ratings are poor, and he isn't leading on the budget crisis, tea party conservatives are inadvertently strengthening his position. "He hasn't done anything to distinguish himself by trying to lead on this issue," Mr. McHenry said. Jon McHenry, September 19 Jon McHenry's comments in US News and World Report on ObamaCare and a potential government shutdown: On its own, GOP pollster Jon McHenry says repealing and dismantling Obamacare is a great issue that attracts the Republican base, a majority of independents and even a fraction of Democratic voters to the GOP ticket. "Where we lose is where we link Obamacare to the CR," McHenry says, referring to the continuing resolution battle Congress is embroiled in. Independents won't go for a government shutdown even if it would stop Obamacare in its tracks, he explains. "It jeopardizes Republicans maintaining control of the House and even gaining control of the Senate, which they are in a position to do in 2014," McHenry says.

Filed Under: Blog, Featured, Health Care, In the News Sidebar, Independent Voters, News Clips, Political Climate Jon McHenry, September 2 Jon McHenry's comments in the Washington Times regarding President Obama and the budget: Mr. McHenry said his polling suggests that would be a mistake for the GOP. "What we're seeing in our polling and in the public polling is that Republicans are in fantastic shape when they're talking about Obamacare, and that includes with independents, right up until the point where you start talking about the government," he said. Jon McHenry, August 15 Jon McHenry's comments in The Hill regarding Republican candidates and populism: But others say these candidates are too focused on running against the party establishment at the expense of bringing new ideas or policy proposals to the debate. "It sort of cracks me up that a Republican would try to get left of President Kennedy on the issue of a rising tide lifting all boats," said Jon McHenry, a Republican pollster with North Star Opinion Research. "It's interesting to me to hear Cruz talk about how we have to reach out to minorities, whether its African-Americans or Hispanics, which is true, but then not to offer any solutions about what you would do with the immigration system," he added. But McHenry said the message is likely to play well among conservative activists in Iowa, who "are probably also the people who have that populist strain." Jon McHenry, May 20 Jon McHenry's comments in the Washington Post regarding Congress and the economy: "When you've got Republicans saying government is doing too much and needs to get out of the way of business, and Democrats saying government needs to step in and do more to help people out, it becomes pretty hard to bridge that economic gap," said Jon McHenry, vice president of North Star Opinion Research, a Republican firm that polls for clients including Sen.
