Gallup: Obama’s Approval Hits All-Time Low Among Men
CNS News. com ^ | September 22, 2011 | Terence Jeffrey

Posted on 09/22/2011 2:08:52 PM PDT by chuckee

The percentage of American men saying they approve of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president hit an all-time low of 36 percent in the Gallup poll last week.

That is down from a peak of 64 percent approval among men that Obama received in the seven-day period that ended on Jan. 25, 2009, the week he was inaugurated.

After his first week in office, Obama’s approval among men as measured by the Gallup poll never again matched that 64-percent peak.

Obama’s approval among men first dropped below 50 percent in the last week of August 2009. That week—after Obama had been in office only seven months-- it hit 47 percent. Less than three months later, in the second week of November 2009, Obama’s approval among men went above 50 percent for the last time—hitting 51 percent.

Obama’s approval among men dropped below 40 percent for the first time in the third week of August 2010, when it hit 39 percent. CNS Last week, Obama’s approval among women was 43 percent in the Gallup poll, seven points higher than his approval among men—but still only 2 points above Obama’s all-time low among women, which was 41 percent, the level it hit in the week that ended Aug. 28...

WIth DADT repealed, I would say about 95%. The other 5% are in the military.

Women love bad boys and they love damaged, needy men. Obama qualifies in both categories. Go figure. I will never understand women (and I am one.)

In this poll, “Men” = Males over 18, which includes sissies and Nancy-boys.

Pare it down to real “Men” and it would drop even further.

Further scale it down to “Men Registered to Vote”, it would be in the 20’s.

“Real Men Likely to Vote”...maybe 1%.

“A male who supports Obama is NOT a man.”

African American males who comprise a large piece of those 36% would probably disagree. If you take them out of the mix his favorability among males would probably dip into the twenties.

“Does this mean men are smarter than women (just a question)??”

When it comes to politics most men are better informed than most women. It is easier to bamboozle a large segment of the female population than it is to bamboozle a large segment of the male population. Who watches Joy Behar on The Spew? Who watches Oprah? Of course, this is not true of every man or woman.

I find it hard to categorize a limp-wristed, granny-pants wearing, can’t-throw-a-baseball-to-save-his-life, spicy-mustard-eating, lite-beer-drinking former community organizer qualifies as a “bad boy.” I mean, he is a bad example of a boy, but not a bad boy. Is he damaged and needy?? Only in a political sense.

I want to know who these 36 percenters ARE. Seriously. Black men? Really? With their unemployment rate sky high?

White men? Really? With his obvious move to stop any prosperity they’ve been pursuing?

Young men? Really? With his failure to get the job market going?

If you remove the blind allegiance of black men and the college numbskulls, he’s probably at 20%.

I’d like to see what it is among white men over 35.

Obama has already put together a election day campaign plan for election day to distract the male vote from the polls. It involves legislation to move the Super Bowl to election day, free admission to NASCAR on election day, and special open unlimited hunting and fishing day.

Not mentioned in this article, but available in the downloadable internals is that just 31% of whites (both sexes) approve of Obama.

Funny, we don't hear that one much.

The breakdown of men by race was not listed, but it can't be good.
