Zogby Interactive: Obama Falls to 39%, As Support from Democrats Continues to Slide; He Trails Romney, J. Bush & Gingrich in '12

Those Saying U.S. on Wrong Track Hits High Under Obama of 69%

UTICA, New York - President Barack Obama's job approval rating has dropped to the lowest point of his Presidency at 39%, and in potential match-ups with Republicans in 2012, he trails Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich and is just one point ahead of Sarah Palin.

The percentage of likely voters saying the U.S. is on the wrong track is now the highest since Obama took office at 69%.

The good news is that 61% of Americans must occasionally have a rational thought. The bad news is that there are still 39% that are either too lazy to read or think their Government check depends on Obozo.

This poll is much more believable than the Quinnipiac manipulated leftist friendly poll the minimized Obama’s precarious position. He can’t be gone soon enough for me.

I have a liberal friend that has always been good humored about our differences. I was joking around with her last night, saying that liberals were starting to put Palin signs in their yards, and that everytime we have long depressions it’s with big spending Democrats, and wasn’t 2 years of depression under Obama and 11 years of depression under Roosevelt enough to prove that it doesn’t work. First time she ever left in a huff. Their cognitive dissonance is starting to effect even the committed libs.

You raise a good point. With Missouri and Texas (and possibly Pennsylvania) attempting laws requiring proof of natural birth to be on the state ballot for a presidential election, Soros only has two years of shelf life to make his puppet cause maximum damage.

“A whopping 60% now disapprove of his job, up from 51% disapproval Sept. 20.

Obama now trails in hypothetical 2012 matchups against Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and the next Bush, Jeb.

And, oh, my! Lookee here! Obama has even fallen into a statistical tie with none other than Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor. “

Back before the elections I predicted a ~10% drop in support once the elections were over, because many Dems were just voicing support for Obama as a way of bolstering support for Dem candidates at the polls. Now that the election is over they are starting to take out their frustrations on him.

I’m trying not to misread this poll. 0bama’s numbers among the Dhims may drop not because of what some people think. Just like many conservatives left Dubya when they started to see Dubya as a RINO, many liberal Democrats start to desert 0bama because they consider him too wimpy, trying too much to be bipartisan, and roll over to Republican demands. This wing of the Democrat Party has been pushing 0bama to fight, stay progressive and avoid triangulation .

Liberalism is a belief system. You can't win over believers by telling them they are wrong. They will only dig their heels deeper. It's like telling a muslim Mohammed was not a prophet but just some two bit conniving pedophile. What will likely happen is not some curious muzzie going online or to a library to research facts, but a riot - followed by bloodshed, dead bodies, torched cars, shattered windows, smoke, fire.. and issues of fatwas.

That 39% includes the black vote that still supports him at around 95%. Where would he be without or even half of that?

I think one reason why the dems are still sliding down is that the dems just re-elected Reid and Pelosi in leadership roles. The election was a referendum on them and the dums still have them as their leaders!

Just as a dog returns to it’s vomit, so do the democrats voting for the same leadership.

39% is a lie. Just as 37% support for Bubba Clinton during impeachment was a lie.

9.9% unemployment is also a lie. We crossed 10% a long time ago.

Yes, well said. They are livid with him and will be even more livid if he gives all American’s a tax break in a deep recession.

Obama is politically doomed. The only thing Obama has done is use the DOJ to defend terrorists the militant black panthers and spent money on slush funds and campaign payback money. He is a radical that cannot lead his way out of a paper bag. There is a small minority that has hijacked our government but are well backed/organized and deeply progressive communist.

http://www.encyclopedia.chicagohistory.org/pages/318.html

I believe the 39% are black Americans that just like him because he is black.

Yep, had a lib tell me this week there never has been Communism. A true believer in some socialist utopia that only exists on paper.

The McCarthy "witchhunt" was misguided because although there were people calling themselves Communist and although there were governments calling themselves Communist, it was "wrong" to persecute "the Communists" because (A)they meant no harm, (B)they had good intensions, and (C)the foreign power they served "wasn't really Communist anyway, it was State Capitalism".

And Islam isn't really the death cult founded by a conquering warlord...

I’m with you, I may be FRIENDLY with some liberals that I see in passing at different places but I am not FRIENDS with any of them! My definition of a friend is someone who will answer his phone at three in the morning and ask what I need him to do for me. As you may guess, I don’t know too many people like that. I know some for whom I would rise at that hour and ask that question but I am not sure how many of them would return the favor. I have learned over the years that you can never really be sure until it happens and so far it hasn’t happened.

I am sure that by any real world measurement of PRODUCTIVE employment the real unemployment rate is well over twenty percent. I wouldn’t even guess just how high it is.

Come January, unless the crazy 1099 requirement in the “health care” bill is rescinded some number of new “jobs” will be created to do all this absurd paperwork but it will all be counterproductive, meaning that the more work done the poorer the country will be. Productive employment and plain employment are two different concepts. When people are given purchasing power by paychecks gained by doing counterproductive work everything they buy with those checks is a positive reward given for negative effort. It is like paying someone to rob you.

The real good news is that OBAMA will most likely be replaced in 2012.

The Bad News? Well, not much, except that Obamacare will just be renamed as Romneycare. In short, no change at all.

I believe the DNC and media used tactic 13 (SHOWN BELOW) on Bush and Palin- Sadly it was a success.

Does the mainstream media have this handbook in they're back pocket? I believe so...

The good news is America is wide awake and well aware of these tactics.

_____________________________________________________

Rules for Radicals By Saul Alinsky - 1971

Hillary Clinton's 1969 Political Science Thesis ("There is Only the Fight") refers to an earlier version of Alinsky’s training manual. "In 1946,” she wrote, "Alinsky's first book, Reveille for Radicals, was published."

Background information

"Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday." --Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

7. Tactics

"Tactics are those conscious deliberate acts by which human beings live with each other and deal with the world around them. ... Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the Have-Nots can take power away from the Haves." p.126

Always remember the first rule of power tactics (pps.127-134):

1. "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."

2. "Never go outside the expertise of your people. When an action or tactic is outside the experience of the people, the result is confusion, fear and retreat.... [and] the collapse of communication.

3. "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

4. "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."

5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage."

6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."

7. "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Man can sustain militant interest in any issue for only a limited time...."

8. "Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose."

9. "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."

10. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign."

11. "If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside... every positive has its negative."

12. "The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative."

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...

"...any target can always say, 'Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?' When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the 'others' come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target...' "One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other." (pps.127-134)
