Obamas job approval rating hits a new low

Is President Obama in serious danger of losing re-election in 2012?
A new McClatchy/Marist Poll released over the weekend found Obama's job approval rating at just 42 percent the lowest number of his presidency. One reason Obama's numbers have taken a turn for the worse: The president has lost ground with Democrats in recent weeks.
According to the poll, 74 percent of Democrats approve of the job Obama is doing a sign that he remains enormously popular with his base. But that number is down nearly 9 percentage points since November, according to McClatchy. Meanwhile his disapproval rating nearly doubled, moving from 11 percent to 21 percent in the last month.
Among self-described liberals, his approval rating has dropped from 78 percent to 69 percent since November.
At the same time, his standing among independent voters the group that propelled him to the White House in '08 remained dismal. Just 39 percent of independents approve of Obama's job performance, compared with 50 percent who disapprove. That's down more than 20 points since Obama was elected.

Please...they will ALL still vote for him!!
He can still win with 42% approval. Conservatives split into two factions, the Palinistas and Mittites.
The GOP-controlled House should pass a resolution calling for the resignation of the Kenyan Usurper. If they don’t then they will reveal themselves to be a bunch of RINOs.
42% of those surveyed are clueless.
Since the blue dogs got slained during the recent elections, all he has left are those crazy loony liberals who will be driving him absolutely nuts for the rest of his term. They deserve each other.
But we won’t. fight the good fight..it is time to win or lose..
This is 42% with the cheerleaders support. What was Bush’s with the cheerleaders against him? Imagine what it would be if the media treated him the same.
A daily body count from Afghanistan would bring it down another 5 percent or more. Sure don’t hear much about that these days, unless it’s a local.
His disapproval ratings are no where near done from dropping. I predict it will be below 20% within the next year. At least I hope it is.
I share your hopes, but, I think he will invoke a terrorist attack or something else to buoy him up
The Internet has changed everything, the same thing is happening to Obama that happened to Bush. Some of his decisions become unpopular .. he corrects his entire agenda towards the other side.. but instead of picking up support from the other side... he loses both and his numbers free fall.
I suspect the leftist Mainsteam Media will continue to do all they can to cover up for Obama. Under those circumstances one can only imagine how low Obama would be today if the Mainstream Media was honestly reporting about Obama.
a terrorist attack would be the final nail in his coffin!
Unlike Bush, the country will not rally around Obama.. they will BLAME Obama.
What happened to Rasummsen’s poll? Use to be on FR daily with -10 or -20 or whatever the net difference was between positive and negative but I haven’t seen it here since before the election.
I maintain there is going to be mischief yet. There is a reason for his parallel government and army of czars.
Imagine how low he would hit if the liberal MSM gave him the same treatment they gave to GWB...
If Mitt is the nominee, many will stay home. If it's Sarah, many will stay home. If it's Huckabee, O wins in a landslide.
“I predict it will be below 20% within the next year.”
Approx. 20% of the country is hardcore lib and he will pick up another 9-10% because he gets 90% of African-Americans.
Take that 30% or so and throw in a few extra points for some weenie ‘independents’ and it will be hard for him to go below about 38% in my calculations.
Bush had no support from the African-American community so his basic numbers easily got down below 30%. I don’t think that will ever happen to BO.
During the Revolutionary times most people were loyalists or didn’t give a damn. A determined minority willing to risk all can do much. Read history. The only poll that matters if push comes to shove in the long term is no poll.
“A determined minority willing to risk all can do much. Read history.”
I’m very familiar with that aspect of American history.
I hope some eyes are opened by the screeching denunciations of Obama coming from the hard Left. All this hate for Obama is because of the mere proposal that SOMEBODY ELSE’S TAXES NOT GO UP FOR ANOTHER TWO YEARS.
If anybody has heretofore missed the fact that the Left is driven by hate and envy and little else, perhaps this will enlighten him.
Not necessarily clueless at all, but probably so; may instead be hard-core Stalinists even if they have never heard of Stalin. The fact that 42 percent support all of this shows the country is doomed.
You are absolutely right in your calculation. African Americans have total faith in Obama. Even J.C. Watts hinted that he was voting for Obama.
