Skip to comments.Backfire: Obama Approval Plummets During Gun Push
Posted on 01/18/2013 6:02:19 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Just a week before the New Year, Obama enjoyed his highest approval ratings of 2012. According to Gallup, 58% of Americans approved of the job Obama was doing. Survey results released today by Gallup, though, show Obama's approval rating has plummeted to just 49%. It is a dramatic drop, especially coming over a holiday period when people traditionally pay little attention to politics. Four years ago, at his first inauguration, a full 69% of Americans approved of Obama.
The drop in Obama's approval from 4 years ago is understandable, given the sluggish economy and the hope American's had as his presidency began. The considerable drop from just a few weeks ago is more puzzling. According to the media, he was the "winner" of the fiscal cliff negotiations, getting most of the tax hikes he campaigned on and avoiding spending cuts.
Also according to the media, he has deftly exploited the Sandy Hook tragedy to make a renewed push for gun control...

Oh dear! Some Obama voters are shocked to find that Obama is a gun grabber. And to think he promised us repeatedly throughout the campaign that, “I am not going to take your guns away.” Who would have guessed that a constitutional law professor so highly praised by our beloved mainstream media would be a liar who had no respect for our Constitution?
They were screaming for bacon in Detroit and when he went to stop right to work in Michigan he didn’t take any bacon and utterly failed to stop RTW plus he got backhanded by the Michigan GOP. LOL
“Obama’s approval rating has plummeted to just 49%.”....
So friggin what?...When his approval rating was that low before the election I thought there was no way he was going to win re-election. I don’t give a rats ass what they say his approval rating is! What a bunch of BS! The dumbasses among us don’t like him but they vote for him anyway? What is this crap the media is playing with us?...Rope-a-dope?
Beats me how anyone who values the right to keep and bear arms could’ve been giving this guy a thumbs-up in the first place. Cognitive dissonance by the truckload.
But just this am, John Harwood was telling us that Obama is very popular and the public is on his side, even over the gun issue.
I’ve got a friend who is a card-carrying government union guy. I’ve hammered over the years about following the union directives in lock-step. I’ve hammered him dozens of times about being a low information voter.
This attack on our 2A rights has finally pulled the blinders from his eyes.
Even the Obamaphone lady isn’t so happy any more ...
... says Obama is a “punk” and she needs a gun AND a grenade! (3:06 + if you want to skip the rest)
65% See Gun Rights As Protection Against Tyranny

2014 is going to be an interesting election year. Two years into Obama term, taxes from tax hikes, fees and Obamacare will be unmasked. People who supported Obama are already freaking at their lower paychecks. If economy muddles along, Obama will start to take blame for it. Bush blaming will not be effective.
Gunowners are pissed. More important many delayed ID voter laws eill kick in in many critical states. Obama supporters were able to delay the laws because they passed in mid 2012 and were too close to the election. Courts ruled that affected voters needed time to get ID’s. It is going to be tougher for the Dems to cheat. If GOP is smart delay the immigration reform as long as possible. Grant amnesty and the GOP is finished for decades due to demographic changes caused by such amnesty.
If GOP wins decisively in 2014, many Dem projects like gun control, illegal immigration amnesty will die. GOP need to delay, delay, delay till after 2014.
And why should he?
The African communist scumbag is a lame duck.
His high numbers are always puzzling to me. His reelection even more so.
When will Freepes ever remember that Obama was not a constitutional law professor. He was a lecturer on the subject. Difference.
While seasonally cool weather tends to retard the process, most obama voters decomposed rapidly once disinterred.
This whole 2nd amendment is beginning to look just like a sequel to a bad movie. We went through this same BS with ObamaCare 4 years ago. And where are we now?
Different day, different subject, same BS.
Heard a lot of bravado past 4 years from rinos. Thank the good Lord for the Tea Party which slowed things down a bit, but . . .
You know every one complains about the "low information" voter. And everyone pointing fingers to the other side as the cause. But tell me, exactly what did the republican party do to try and reach out and inform them? Yeah I already know the sorry excuses most will make about it being a waste of time and resources. So, lets just surrender now and save alot of grief. eh?
Obviously, Mittins wrote them off with his 47% attitude. I always thought it would have been real leadership to show up in a few barrios and ghettos. Yeah so what if they go crazy? Turn things upside down. Because all we do is write them off. They are not us and we are not them.
Obama's approval ratings has zero significance now or ever!
