Skip to comments.AP Poll: Majority disapprove of Obama on oil spill
Posted on 06/15/2010 11:04:22 AM PDT by NormsRevenge
WASHINGTON A majority of Americans disapprove of how President Barack Obama has handled the devastating Gulf oil spill though far more blame BP for what people call a sluggish two-month response, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll released Tuesday.
It comes as the president seeks to show more forceful leadership in confronting the nation's worst environmental crisis and convince a skeptical public he's up to the task.
The survey found that 52 percent don't approve of Obama's handling of the spill, a significant increase from last month when a big chunk of Americans withheld judgment. But Obama's overall job performance rating didn't take a hit; it stayed virtually the same at 50 percent. That's consistent with the public's attitudes throughout his young presidency; people generally like him but don't necessarily agree with his policies.

An earlier poll had chairman MAO-bama’s disapproval at 79% - even higher than Bush’s 72% on Katrina.
But, but, but, ... I won.

Obama = Whiny Little Bitch
For a real nightmare click here:
The people on the oil drum are, in the main, professional oil people, engineers and work in the industry.
They have been carefully following the disaster and this is the first I’ve read over there to bring up h$ll on earth or under the sea.
If Obama’s approval ratings havent dropped below 50% by now, then we might as well just give up...
Somehow, I don’t think AP’s poll is accurate/honest.
What I do know for SURE, is that if this oil spill had happened under GW, he’d have been run out of office by now. Katrina, they called for his head after about 24 hours, but Obama has had this oil spill for 2 months, the media still fawning all over him.
Oh, we’re just wee wee’ed up a little.
Pay it no mind oh messiah and savior!
Did he mention Flag Day??
I have to think that Obama’s handlers think it's better for him to get criticized for using the Teleprompters rather than worry about what he might say without using them.
No, the Oil Drum is the hangout of Peak Oil freaks and self styled green leaning “Energy Experts”, the National Enquire is more credible then them
When will the public quit expecting omnipotence from the government? It all started with the MSM’s desperate desire to pin all misfortune on Republicans; now the people have come to believe that we can be safe from everything, if only the bureaucrats are in charge.
“Will not stand for...”
“Greedy Wall St....”
“I am the President”
(Obama speech outline)
Says he's having legislation introduced to have the "L" removed.
” Teleprompters again?
I have to think that Obamas handlers think it’s better for him to get criticized for using the Teleprompters rather than worry about what he might say without using them. “
Folks, we have a WINNER!
Don’t worry...by tomorrow, the muddle headed, mind-numbed robots will hang on his every word tonight, and be declaring tomorrow how proud they are of the job he’s doing and isn’t he the most wonderful, caring, environmentally conscientious president to ever walk the planet.
