by Dana Blanton , FOXNews.com

President Obama's approval rating has hit a new low of 46 percent, even as a majority of Americans says he is providing the kind of leadership they expected.

print email share recommend (2) President Obama's approval rating has hit a new low of 46 percent, according to a FOX News poll released Thursday. An equal number -- 46 percent -- disapprove of the job he's doing.

Breaking down the numbers by political party shows how sharply split American voters are over the president's job performance. While 85 percent of Democrats approve of their party leader, 80 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents disapprove.

The president's average approval rating for his term so far is 56 percent.

I expected him to be an ultra-radical Marxist completely incapable of understanding the way the real world works resulting in incredibly dangerous naiveté...

It is now safe to say that Obamao is the worst president in our nation’s history, and he is reaching for the title of worst leader in world history.

how can even most Dems support this?
if they had a brain they would see how he lied over lobbyists to helping big companies.
To not even knowing about what to do over the wars, to the bad economy he has done. To how he cannot even call a muslim terrorist just that.

Then bringing them here to face an easier court.
The list is endless and yet these idiots are either just too dumb, too lazy to get the info , to ignorant or watch MSNBC.

What idiot would close down gitmo and have no clue what to do with the terrorist or would sign and pass bills they admit they do not read.

51% of Independents disapproval is bad news for the Dems.

Ties in with the VA & NJ results also.

Blind, religious faith in the "elite" ruling class.

They place their faith in other humans instead of in God.

Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for Fox News from November 17 to November 18. For the total sample, the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Then Obama's approval among 'likely voters' is about 43%.

Yup. He’s providing the kind of “leadership I expected, all right. Which might explain why I disapproved of him from the get-go.

Also on FOX poll...

As Sarah Palin blankets the media on a whirlwind book promotion tour, the former vice-presidential contender is clearly back on America's radar screen. Despite being characterized by many as a divisive force in her party and the nation, Americans are much more likely to give Palin a positive rating (47 percent favorable) than another prominent female leader -- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (28 percent favorable). Moreover, about six in 10 Americans (61 percent) think Palin has been treated unfairly by the press, according to the latest Fox News poll.

Palin has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2012, along with a host of other Republicans. Among self-identified Republicans in the survey, Palin gets the highest favorable ratings (70 percent) amid a group of other possible contenders for the GOP nomination, including Mike Huckabee (63 percent), Mitt Romney (60 percent) and Newt Gingrich (58 percent). Palin's favorable score among all voters is 47 percent, up nine percentage points over last July's reading of 38 percent.

Its still 56% percent. There needs to be a more significant shift among Independents to really bring the Obamessiah down to earth!

The American public now regrets marching to the polls singing the mantra “first black president” and electing the third marxist president.

How could that sell-out whore Newt Gingrich get 58%? That list is a rehash of the establishment GOP losers that got us where we are now. Screw them all. Find some real conservatives.

Gee - 46% favorable for The One, and 47% favorable for Sarah Palin. I can see the headlines in the UK now - “How can 47% of American voters be so STUPID?”

Get on board, FRiends, the Conservative train is out of the station and is gathering speed.

you forget that nearly 100% of blacks vote for democrats, since blacks make up nearly 13% of the population, they amount to 26% of democratic voters.

SO... that means that 25% of democrats will support the zero regardless, because of their matching skin color. the remaining support will come from communists happy with what he is doing.

Could be 60 percent again next November and with the GOP’s luck probably will be.

Still, nice to see other polls bearing out the trends.

Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and MAO as well.

Still, Obozo WILL go down as the worst POTUS ever!
And I DO expect some bloodshed by the American people on the streets before his presidency is over.

I expect tanks in DC to remove him from the White House after he tries to change term limits.

The approval numbers are shockingly high IMHO. Of course, Bill Clinton always maintained the 43 percent approval.

46% of Americans are simply too ignorant to vote with anything approaching an informed decision, too stupid to think critically about anything they are told, and too parasitic to make a living off their own efforts.

These people are called "Democrats" and "Obama Supporters".

They need to be allowed to naturally cull themselves into extinction.

Starting now. No more welfare, no more government unions, no more government jobs period.

Failing to do so is treating the cancer of invasive government with a combination of injected PCBs and voodoo, and we already have a metastasizing tumor that is 46% of our body weight.

“.. even as a majority of Americans says he is providing the kind of leadership they expected.”

That might seem contradictory at first glance, but it’s not.

I disaprove of him, but I have to say he’s “providing the kind of leadership we expected”.

I figured it would be this bad, and it is. Hence it is “as expected”.

true

Many Dems I have met vote for them because they see a D.

The amount of times I have seen an obama sticker(very rare now a days) and I ask them about an issue and they have no idea how to answer or even what issues are going on.

It’s like they’re sheep and they need to be told what to say and think.Bit like a cult with obama as a leader.

Ever noticed how something happens like the shooting and they stay silent but hours later after they have heard the talking point they just repeat them.
Even on their nut case radical websites like KOS and move on they wait for their dear leaders to give them a talking point.

Very sad and history will show that obama voters are the dumbest voters this country has ever produced.
they’re ll go down as a cult like group with a cult like thinking
