Gallup: Obama's disapproval numbers soar to new high
Breitbart ^ | 2 Mar 2014 | WILLIAM BIGELOW

Posted on 03/02/2014 2:28:56 PM PST by mandaladon

On Saturday, Gallup released its latest 3-day poll noting Barack Obama’s disapproval numbers have soared to 56% of those polled. The highest disapproval percentage Obama has ever registered in the Gallup weekly poll has been 53%. Only 40% approve of how he performs as president, which ties the lowest number in any weekly poll since he took office.

Well at least we know his approval rating will never go below 12%.

I don’t even believe these numbers anymore since I know people who would identify as a “social liberal” or “progressive” and basically everyone thinks the bam is a giant douche.

So what do you call a man disapproved of by 56% of the American people? Mr. President (with a pen and a phone).

....and this with the msm proping him up at every turn. Compare this to G. W. Bush were the msm was trying to tear him down at every conceivable opportunity.

All this poll shows is at least 40% of the people would vote for him again. And some of the 56% would, too.

Obama’s approval would be below 20% if the question was worded as follows: Understanding it is not racist to disapproved of Obama because be is black, how to you rate is job performance........”

Rasmussen had Zero as high as 52% back on February 24th. I believe they have told to add 10% as needed...or else.

These numbers are obviously high because of fear. Knowing that Obama has a force of ruthless thugs in unions, powerful government agencies, numerous ACORN/occupy/MoveON like organizations, many people would be afraid to give a negative view to an unknown telephone interviewer. Imagine a black family in a city, little old lady in living alone, any government employee, a college kid at a liberal university, or anyone for that matter risking telling the truth.

His approval should be in the low 20s by now. The fact that 40% still approve, shows how many commies we got out there.

That is the very sad part. As disgusting as he is, and all indications that he is a true Marxist/Leninist who, most likely, was not born in the USA, we see that almost half of the voters think he is OK.

Only hardcore Obama supporters can be surprised by this.

My surprise is that his DISAPPROVAL isn't much, much higher. What was so important that he skipped the security briefing on the Russian invasion of the Ukraine? Did he have a hot date with Reggie Love?

And if he was up for re-election in 3 months, the media would fire up the “War on Women” campaign, and he would win again.

Right?

Could someone explain why Rasmussen polls are always around 47 to 48% approval and Gallup seems to always be lower. Now Gallup is at 40% but Rasmussen is at 48%. Big difference.

I just wonder when Obama is going to give the equivalent of Jimmy Carter’s malaise speech. Maybe he already has with that last turkey, but it just didn’t resonate as much.

Carter was so angry and disappointed at the American people for “failing him”, that it was really making his hemorrhoids throb. It was all downhill from there, punctuated with attack rabbits and other hallucinations.

Obama could care less what his poll numbers are. His objective is to fundamentally transform America. He has been very successful in getting the transformation underway. His opposition is neutralized. He is able to violate the Constitution with impunity and with no repercussions. The Republicans have approved all of the spending he wants and have given him limitless borrowing authority. American’s economy is in the toilet and its military is becoming a shell of its former self.

When you are winning, and have no effective opposition, why should you care about polls?

Pretty damn hard, I'd say.

Go to any online news site (left, right, or in between) and monitor the comment threads following the articles. Even at sites like LATimes.com the comments generally run something like 80 - 90% anti-Obama.

Even foreign sites like DailyMailUK run overwhelmingly against Obama in the comments.

The U.S. press and the national polling organizations are shielding Obama from the worst of the public's wrath.

Now who didn’t see that coming? Perhaps this is the reason V agreed to appear with BOR. That’s the ticket! She could get his numbers up. Face it. The little won needs all the help he can get. Even the infamous ‘chant’ would be a stretch to help at this point in time. Too many KNOW or at lest suspect.

Reports say he was attending daughter Sasha's dance performance at the Strathmore center in North Bethesda, MD.

40% is very low statistically. Anything below that is a wipeout.

Keep in mind that Obama was supported by anti-war types who were mislead by him and MoveOn.org in that first election.

I can't believe that with the war mongering and with the spying and Snowden situations there's much support left in that group.

I think the anti-war people are a low number. Not that people are or should be pro-war, but where are the anti-war people against Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine?

Most people in the anti-war crowds during the Bush presidency were nothing but tools, many looking mainly for drugs and sex.

The only real anti-war crowd sit in the churches on Sunday and you rarely hear from them because they resort to prayer. The others are sick perverts and dope-fiends who will continue to support Obama regardless.
