After the stellar performance on The View be prepared for the uptick by the lemmings.
YES! WE CAN!.............
Also, forgot to mention, the 49% disapprove number is especially significant because many of the polls they list have a “neutral” type rating (for example: approve, disapprove, or not sure). Obviously if someone is “not sure” if they approve of Obama or not that’s still terribly unenthusiastic, just a shade better than “disapprove” imho.
Elizabeth was great on THE VIEW because she actually had the guts to challenge Obama on his policies and their effects. Good for her.
Actually I find it very disturbing that 45% still approve of his performance on any level. If this were to stay the same then he just has to convince another 5% to win re-election.
????????????????????? Dumbassed Lemmings!
Governing against the will of the people will do that.
I dunno, I would hope that won't give him anything more than few days minor bump. Let's face it, most of the people who watch 'the view' are probably already in his camp. And he did have a gaff, calling African Americans "mongrels" and all, so not sure if it was entirely stellar.
But what will give him a bump, no doubt by tomorrow, is that partisan pollsters will move to quickly output a fairy-tale poll with highly suspect internals that show him with a positive rating. Bank on it.
It is all actually quite simple to understand.
Americans are seeing this government as more of a dictatorship rather than a democracy, a pariah instead of a friend, a renegade more than a patriot, an egomaniac rather than a humanitarian.
Free fall compared to the overall downward trend, yes. Look at the graph, a very noticeable acceleration downward.
Believe me, the dems will notice this.
But Joy Beharse simply can not get over her Sarah palin fixation.
45.8% approve. There are a lot of marxists(idiots) in America.
I never miss the View. I like hard-hitting, thought-provoking journalism, the subtle exploration of issues, the original and profound insights and serious, but never tedious, tone
A lot of them from California were protesting in front of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office yesterday. They were carrying Mexican and Marxist Che’ flags. That so-called “judge” gave them a lot to celebrate. A Marxist/Communist win over Americans.
No actually all he has to do is get a third party candidate to run who will siphon off a few percent of moderates from the GOP and he can win with less than 50% like Clinton did.
I think the most accurate pollster out there is Rasmussen, and that's proven by highly accurate results in many elections, and Ras has him at 47% approval. And that's among "likely voters" unlike many of the other polls.
So yes, at these levels he definitely can still be re-elected. But the trend is not looking kind. This is not the trajectory the democrats need to see 96 days before elections.

You are a Liar! A Liar! Perhaps you can run for the Senate.
Marxists and communists are not known for their deep penetrating economic and financial acumen.
And since Obama is without a doubt a Marxist/Communist lackey, that is why America is experiencing its worst malaise since Jimmy Carter. Obama’s regime is Jimmy Carter redux.
Unless republicans and conservatives retake both houses of Congress in November, I believe we will see another GREAT DEPRESSION in this country only the one we will have will make the 1930’s resemble a coffee klatch or a tupperware party by comparison.
what did she say? did anyone else challenge him?
I've never watched The View, so who is "Elizabeth?"
How can you tell? Because I forgot to mention the beautiful, voluptuous and desirable
heifers babes? Forget Ginger or Mary Ann. For me the eternal question is Whoopi or Barbara? But why chose when you can have both for an ounce of pot and an invitation to listen to the While album while leafing through the portfolio edition of The Family of Man you picked up at the Museum of Modern Art gift shop?
I would love to have a president who can actually talk and communicate as an expert on something.
I like Palin, but apart from energy and running a state, she really cannot articulate the language of business.
I know many here hate Romney, but let’s face it, he speaks clearly on economic issues...
Newt speaks clearly on a whole assortment of issues...but he doesn’t move me....He is not the kind of guy I get excited about.
Charles Krauthammer, Mark Levin are on your feet clear thinkers....Why can’t we have that in our leaders?
Palin is getting better...as you can tell she is a fast learner....
But I’d like to see someone as president who is truly intelligent, and not by how you handle softball questions on the View.
I share your concerns and views. It’s amazing that more than 10% of the population supports him.
It will be a freefall when he has 50+ percent disapproval on the RCP which includes polls which oversample dims, and polls that survey all adults. This is bad, bad news for Obama. The only good news is that even with all the dice rigged his way, is that he’s still not quite in Bill Clinton territory.
Let's not over-value "intelligence" (or articulation) in a President.
After all, aren't those traits exactly what Obama was believed to bring to the job?
And how do we measure "intelligence"? By now, haven't we discovered that the university and the degree have nothing to do with it? It is, after all, Ivy League graduates who have created most of the problems we confront today.
In selecting a presidential candidate, I'd submit that the most important single qualification is character. Will they be honest with us? Can we trust this person to do the right thing? Can we confidently charge this person with the primary responsibility for national security? Will they respect and honor the Constitution?
Certainly, some level of smarts are required. Joe Biden, for example, isn't up to the job. But it needn't be an extraordinary IQ. Instead, an extraordinary helping of common sense would be highly desirable.
Principled character plus common-sense policies should be the guiding criteria for selecting a President.
INtelligence to me, is the ability to think clearly on your feet and articulate without always being scripted. It usually follows that people have the ability speak clearly usually are able to win friends and influence people.
AND YES, Character....We tend to take all these things for granted when we look at politicians....
What has opened my eyes more than ANYTHING else since coming on board FR, and listening more and more to conservative talk shows, and reading....is that our elected officials are a dissapointment. I respect and admire very few from either party, but virtually NONE from the democrats.
TErm limits would do more to once and for all make our elected officials accountable to the people instead of their party first, then the people.
It’s like when you work for a company. Where is your first loyalty, the company or the union?
And by ANY measure...Obama and Biden are not intelligent people in my book.
IF you look at the younger REagan, the man who spoke at the REpublican convention in 64 and again when he challenged Gerald Ford, there was a man with true intelligence.
I think Nixon was intelligent, Kennedy too. From what I’ve read of Truman and Eisenhower also. Lincoln the gold standard....
This president is no Jackie Robinson, a man who had a similar opportunity in life as Obama, and that being to unite than to divide.
Obama is the biggest disappointment as a president in my lifetime. Much worse than CArter...and we still have two years to go.
Because of racial sensitivity, these numbers appear better than they are. Blacks give him @ a 90% rating and they are 13% of the population. Since blacks do not vote heavily in midterms, I fear O is in even more trouble than touted.
