Skip to comments.Obama's Approval Rating Hits New Low
Posted on 04/02/2010 10:21:30 AM PDT by Chet 99
Last week, President Obama signed historic health care reform legislation into law -- but his legislative success doesn't seem to have helped his image with the American public.
The latest CBS News Poll, conducted between March 29 and April 1, found Americans unhappier than ever with Mr. Obama's handling of health care - and still worried about the state of the economy.
President Obama's overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 percent, down five points from late March, just before the health bill's passage in the House of Representatives. It's down 24 points since his all-time high last April. Forty-one percent of those polled said they disapproved of the president's performance.

Look out below! :)
One term President. Worse than Carter. Wanna bet that he’ll come out and say he doesn’t want to run again? He won’t want the refection. Send him back to Chi Town with all the riots.
Free fallin’ now I’m free fallin’
He’s so arrogant I think he will run again: “Those polls aren’t accurate. They’re tainted by Fox News. People love my ‘spead-the-wealth’ programs.”
Of course on CBS, he has a higher approval than disapproval rating.
still a long way to Bush lowest CBS of 20
but Obama’s strongly disapproves are record
Even when dished about by a Kenyan President.
who the hell are they polling that gives this guy almost 50% approval?
He is far far worse than Carter and will try to rig all the elections.
Maybe their own staff.
“Send him back to Chi Town with all the riots.”
No, ship him off to be President of Haiti. He’ll be a real ruler and not have to worry about racist whites, Asians, and Hispanics. And he won’t be able to do as much damage as the United States.
Laid off ACORN workers.
Just give more speeches Obama and you can turn this around. Let people know what what was passed. Get the word out.
It has to be lower than the media reports. They are loathe to report on how badly their Dear Leader is received.
And Daffy Duck, and Porky and Joe DiMaggio?
GMTA (see my post 16).
It is actually lower than that.
It was done by Lyndon Johnson. It worked. So when dishonest, people are in control of things, which we see everyday now, Congress is a mess and proud of it it seems.
Corruption is the Washington way, and has been moving ever more that way for years. It is said, Kennedy won on the buying of Irish votes in Boston (wasn't it?). Kennedy's death was not really ever truly exposed/solved. There are many instances of cover ups or illegal occurrences behind the scenes. Nothing new ... however, are increasing until in is obvious and blatant.
God help us in our day, in Jesus name, amen.
God help us in our day, in Jesus name, amen.
He is our first AA President. I say he opts out after screwing things up for the laid back life of giving speeches at a half a mill a pop.
I’d like to see 36 to 38
When it hits below 25% be fearful, because at this point some sort of reistchtag type event may take place and elections suspended, if he thinks he can win another election, that is the only way we will get our country back, because he will risk an election then.
The MSM may now start to UNDERESTIMATE Zero's disapprovals so if he has a slight rise between now and Nov. they can say how miraculous his "comeback" is.
I'll drive through NY, NJ, PA.
I have had it. Let Obama voters be proud of the communist bastard they put in the Whitehouse.
Haiti would be a good place. Especially since he doesn’t have a Green Card to stay here.
I'll take your bet and raise you:
Pop stars Gloria and Emilio Estefan will host President
Barack Obama at their Miami Beach home for a Democratic
National Committee fundraiser. The president is slated to visit
Florida in April to discuss the U.S. space program. The Democratic Party cocktail reception will run $30,400-a-couple.
Excellent. May it continue to fall... the American people are slowly waking up.
The numbers for Bush were skewed heavily, and completely off-base, and so are the numbers for Obama.
His approval is not this high, and it must pain CBS to report even a leftist set of numbers that don't approve of their god.
I’m Shocked, shocked!
Note that this is a poll of “adults”, which tends to favor Democrats. If he is doing this poorly among “adults”, imagine his ratings among voters.
Aren’t they raising this money for the November elections?
That’s what I’m talkin’ about!
“Laid off ACORN workers.”
Laid off ACORN workers are all being hired by a new organization that is the same as ACORN, except for the name.
Lawmaker (Issa) Releases Report Claiming ACORN Operates Under Different Names
The document, titled “Asset Transfer and License agreement” shows that Bertha Lewis, chief executive of ACORN, sold the group’s assets to the newly formed Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) in exchange for cash.
ACCE has hired former ACORN employees, purchased the ACORN database of dues-paying members and bought a database with “e-mail contact information for approximately 16,202 potential contributors residing in California.”
Most of the 20 chapters of ACORN are organizing under new names, a source within the group told Reuters.
The way the article starts it is as though they expected people to be pleased with the President for pushing through and signing into law legislation they strongly and overwhelmingly opposed. Of course his approval has gone down - he is doing things the people clearly don’t approve of - it stands to reason.
The great thing about Obama is that he will not let up on the changes that he wants to make to American life and wealth distribution - so, the November election will be all that more interesting and hopefully a complete rejection of Obama and the democrats.
I do wonder how the democrats plan to turn this scenario around - it seems that they don’t have a plan, but that simply cannot be the case.
I think there was some accepted conventional wisdom that he would be able to convince people to like ObamaCare, once it was forced through. That danger still lurks. People are stupid and gullible (if they weren’t, Obama would not be president and Pelosi would not be Speaker).
These low approval ratings for Obama are coming after years of adulation, slobbering and genuflecting to him, and lies on his behalf.
These numbers are remarkable, given the circumstances.
Since this is a See?BS poll, you can guarantee that the numbers have been skewed as much as they dare. His real negatives are probably over 50% and his positives are probably hovering just below 40%.
Is there a “could not possibly disapprove more” option in these polls? I’d go for that.
Where’s Gibbs with his slam on 6 year olds and color crayons?
And he’s been real busy claiming, just like on the farm, the H.C. seeds have to have time to sprout. RIGHT INTO WEEDS. Any farmer would have never planted weeds to begin with.
“who the hell are they polling that gives this guy almost 50% approval?”
Whether it’s 50, 40 or 30 - that number of people approving of this commie means this nation is in BIG TROUBLE. We’ve got a huge education effort ahead of us. At least his numbers are dropping...
“It has to be lower than the media reports. They are loathe to report on how badly their Dear Leader is received.”
I agree. Which leads me to think that November will be worse than the RAT punditry (that would be the ‘press’) is hoping for.
It will be UNEXPECTED.
Exactly what I was thinking. WTH are they talking to?
The MSM may now start to UNDERESTIMATE Zero’s disapprovals so if he has a slight rise between now and Nov. they can say how miraculous his “comeback” is.
Propagandists = NBC, NYT, Washington Post, et al.
“it must pain CBS to report even a leftist set of numbers that don’t approve of their god.”
That much we know is true for the RAT propagandists.
“Laid off ACORN workers.”
Imagine *that* skill set! (Will they ever ‘work’ again?)
How low can she GO? At 30 there will be much more talk of impeachment. At 25 everyone will be begging the Birthers to get to it.
