The poll results are a cautionary tale for the president.
California is one of the few states where he enjoys high job approval numbers. If Mr. Obama keeps trying to “reach across the aisle” to Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the president risks California voters perceiving him as a milquetoast, unable to battle the increasingly rightwing Republican leadership.
Voters in the Golden State may very likely stay home in 2012.
Compromise or stand up to Republicans?
