Skip to comments.Who likes the president? Unchurched, unmarried, poor, inexperienced and pro-Obama
Posted on 12/20/2009 12:14:16 AM PST by Red Steel
A strategist casting a cold eye on the Gallup poll tracking President Obama's job approval rating might be tempted to give our president the following advice: Sir, you need more unmarried, unchurched, poor and inexperienced Americans.
Given the polling trends, the more people who are devout, married and prosperous and have seen more than a few decades of life, the worse it will be for the president. What's good for America is bad for Mr. Obama.
Unless, of course, you think that faith, family, wealth and longevity are bad. But, then, who would think that?
Each Monday, Gallup publishes a demographic breakdown of the president's approval rating among the people it has surveyed during the previous seven-day period.
For the week of Dec. 7-13, Mr. Obama's overall approval was 49 percent, with some groups rating him significantly higher than that and some rating him significantly lower. Among people who seldom or never go to church, Mr. Obama did relatively well. Fifty-three percent said they approved of the job he is doing. Among those who go to church monthly or nearly weekly, 53 percent approved. But among weekly churchgoers, only 42 percent approved.

I’m “unmarried, unchurched, poor and inexperienced.”
And I hate Obama’s guts.
I being doing better $ wise if it wasn’t for the Chicago democrats who destroyed this state’s economy (with a big assit from their RINO buddies)!
People who I consider to be the enemy of this country and therefore my enemy.
I don't give a damn if they are:
That's just the way I feel after today.
Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath neer within him burnd,
As home his footsteps he hath turnd,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonord, and unsung.
Sir Walter Scott
Millions are fed misinformation. They think he’s Will Smith from the movie, or Tiger Woods from the green. Lazy does not want here the truth.
I don't think I can stand three years of articles complaining about Obama from anyone, but from the left especially. It's just like the incessant Bush-bashing. How much of this bitching can we take?
If the ‘bitching’ has the same effect on DingleBarry’s approval ratings that it had on Bush’s it’s a small thing to endure.
What a legacy
No. The bitching is an incessant drone that has no nuance, no detail, and no examination of what actually brought us to this place.
That's the difference between bitching and valuable criticism. Bitching just personalizes what's already personal--exmaination educates so we don't make the same mistakes repeatedly. And his approval ratings aren't dropping because of it, they're dropping because people are seeing the actual substantive things he's doing, and rightly disagree with them. If they'd known he was going to be like this a year ago, he wouldn't have won. And the flip side of bitching is ridiculous, uncritical praise.
Socialism is designed to be self perpetuating!
I think I read somewhere that Zerobama’s approval numbers were significantly higher with women as opposed to the men. But I bet if you separated out the number of women who where married with children, it would be a pretty low percentage.
I’d also like to see some numbers about how many military, former military, or military families approve of Zerobama.
A: @$*%@*$&! Clueless idiots
Right now, the battle against that sort of folks has to come first. Taking the government back is the primary thing we have to focus on, but we should all wake up and realize that ignoring the leftist control of education has consequences. Had more people been willing to suffer the slings and arrows of the name calling left in order to force them out of their positions of authority in colleges, we might not be in the mess we're in.
The next time someone talks about the independence of education and how it should be free, remind them that the climate liars used that argument for years while building a completely false “science” on behalf of their leftist masters. Education should reflect the values and morals of the majority, not be free from them and not be free to assault them.
If I rely on bumper stickers, it is most of the blacks and a whole lot of white university types, students and teachers.
Poor people who vote for 0bama deserve NO charity.
Naturally many Obama voters thought the ultimate gravy train had finally arrived. Now they’re demanding their free lunches. For some of the deluded fools Obama was going to change the cosmos. He himself helped promulgate that ridiculous notion. Obama has revealed himself to be just another polished, lib fraud.
The Democrats are content to draw on the dregs of society for their support; if it had rained on Election Day, they know McCain would have won in a landslide. They fooled enough marginal whites to win in ‘08.
"I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car.
I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage.
You know? If I help [Obama], he's gonna' help me."
Okay, what movie actress quoted this to a male character she despised in what movie.
Pretty close. Obama's morals are at the same level as Tiger's. The difference is that Tiger is just sleazy (like Clinton) and not as far as I know evil (like Hitler, Stalin, and Obama).
Andie McDowell to Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.
He’s not ‘white’ so he must be ‘right’.
WJR: What kind of money
obama supporter: obama money
WJR: Wheres it coming from?
obama supporter: obama
WJR: Where did obama get it?
obama supporter: His stash. I dont know. But hes giving it to us. But we love him and thats why we voted for him.

Actually socialism reaches a point where it morphs into tyranny which becomes repressive which then destructs -— one way or another.
Not the kind of people who are going to remember the Obama Administration fondly, that’s for sure. This is the “What Have You Done for Me Lately” coalition.
At church we pray every Sunday for the President, Congress and all elected officials. For me saying these words has caused some very great reflection and why I should continue to pray for the POTUS whomever that may be. I guess in our congregation in the Bush years there were many who could not abide with his administration and found it difficult to pray for him.
This article points out that since I am a church goer I am less likely to support BHO. While wanting our nation to be successful it is hard to want his Cap and Trade, Obamacare, Iran policy, and reckless spending to succeed. I pray that BHO will make the best use of his intellect and try to remove his leftist ideals. I fear if he is as big a failure if left to his own direction this country may be unrepairable. Only God can save us - this is what I believe.
“If they’d known he was going to be like this a year ago, he wouldn’t have won. And the flip side of bitching is ridiculous, uncritical praise.”
Of course if they had a brain they would have known long before the election that he was a guaranteed disaster. He made it quite plain to anyone who really wanted to know as opposed to blindly skipping down the garden path and ignoring the rattlesnake coiled up a few feet farther on. I actually went to the polls and voted for John McCain, not because I had any kind of illusion that he would be a good president but simply because I could not imagine that he would be as bad as I knew Obama would be.
The tyranny part comes in early for anyone who resists!
