Obama Hits New Low in Gallup Poll (47%)
Weekly Standard ^ | January 23, 2010 | John McCormack

Posted on 01/23/2010 11:55:42 AM PST by reaganaut1

Obama's approval rating according to Gallup's tracking poll has hit a new low of 47%.

Rasmussen's model, which was vindicated yet again, along with Public Policy Polling, in Massachusetts last week, shows 55% of voters disapprove of Obama's job performance and 44% approve (43% strongly disapprove and 24% strongly approve).

BAD NEWS FOR BARACK
Tune: "Limbo Rock" Original MIDI

Every lib'ral boy and girl
All the folks in Limbaugh World
Both sides bashing on Barack
All find something they can mock
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

He'll go lower now
He'll go lower now
How low can he go

First he spread the wealth around
Then he bowed down to the ground
Spend a trillion, make it three
Spend it like it grows on trees
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Though he started out on top
Every time the numbers drop
There's a ratings trend that shows
He will fall to record lows
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

Don't move that phone book far
He needs a polling czar
How low can he go

Oh but I’m sure the Obumbler will make a comeback in his state of the union speech. “I I I me me me it’s such a hard job and it’s all Bush’s fault and evil fat cats on Wall Street.” See how easy it is to write for the Obumbler’s TOTUS?

Democrat Party, force Obama to resign or impeach him. Failure to do so will just take down all you Democrat types with him!!!! The American public and voters have your number, and POTUS Obama is not going to rebound, socialist, communis and facist that he is in very being and soul, and....to boot he is anti-American to the core!!!

The number "47" is still about 3 times too high.

I think his SOTU speech will be pivotal to his agenda. He has been sounding nasty and angry lately--the Stalinist teeth coming out. If he thinks that is what America needs or wants, and does it in front of the Congress and the nation, he will be very rudely disappointed by the response.

Coming out shouting about "fighting for" whoever, and trashing the banks once more, will leave people disturbed and more distrustful than they already are, which is plenty. But we shall see...

I saw on TV, maybe FNC, that a partial transcript showed that he is indeed going to blame Bush and Cheney for stuff. Nevermind that the Democrats have been in charge of both houses of Congress for three years and he's been President for a year.

If Obama hit’s a low of 47% on Gallup - subtract another 4% - so it’s really about 43%.

I work in a big firehouse where there are a bunch of Obama fans. It seems like everytime Obama was on TV the goons would turn it on, and try to insist everyone watch. This would happen even when we were trying to eat dinner. Now even the biggest fans don’t seem to want to hear him anymore. The same old lies get kind of tiring after a year. He said he was going to create “millions” of “green” jobs which he didn’t do, but he did manage to put tens of millions of people out of work.

47% still think he’s doing a “good job”? That’s about 35% more than I would expect.

Zero accomplishments on unemployment, bringing terrorists to America and trying to wreck healthcare with a Congress that has voting members who don’t know what’s in the bill but “just need to pass it quickly”?

I don’t believe these numbers.
Too many mistakes have been made that affect his constituents ability to “hang in there”.

Unless.....we have that many heart devoted marxists/communists/fascists/taliban, parading as dems in this country.
Which could well be the case.

‘It was like angry, paranoid stand up comic.’

Yea, all that and no necktie. Have you noticed how often this guy shows up without a tie? I hope whoever is advising him on this keeps it up. Just sends another message that he isn’t presidential.

There are many subtle things about his words, facial countenance, and personality lately that seem to conclude that he is becoming unhinged.

Obama Hits New Low in Gallup Poll (47%)

Obama is guilty of the biggest sin in America ... something that transcends even the clash of communism vs. capitalism ... the sin of being a LOSER.

The media is starting to turn on him and, with it, some of the far left. I suspect that Obama’s approval numbers will dip the more that liberals become disenchanted with him.

They were soooo close to socialist utopia and then Scott Brown came out of nowhere to claim Teddy’s seat. Gotta love the irony in that.

Obozo’s base is abandoning him in droves because he's ineffectual to their socialist goals.

The Independents are leaving him even faster, as he has proven he is an incompetent liar.

Obozo may try to appear to “pivot” to be more moderate like Clinton was after the '94 GOP take-over. He may even fire a few people in his staff, including Rahm dead-fish Emanuel to appear that he's ridding the White House of the brain trust that got Obozo into his mess.

In the end, Obozo will learn a hard life lesson that he never had to face in Illinois or learn from the father-figures in his pitiful life:

Trust, once lost, is next to impossible to get back.

This coming SOTU was supposed to be a celebration at passing Obamacare. Whoops.

You’re right about him sounding angry lately, since there are many on the left who think that his problem was that he wasn’t acting liberal enough!

I can’t make this stuff up if I tried. Can it be November already please?
