Gallup: Obama job approval surges (swings 10 pts. in 2 weeks; bad news for thinking Americans)
Politico, another Hussein cult worship center on the web ^ | 12/26/11 | B Tau

Posted on 12/26/2011 1:51:13 PM PST by Recovering_Democrat

According to the latest Gallup tracking poll, more Americans approve of the job that President Obama is doing than disapprove for the first time since this summer.

The latest Gallup survey shows that 47 percent of Americans now say they approve of the way that President Obama is handling his job. This is a 5 percent improvement since the Dec. 16-18 Gallup survey and marks the first time the president's numbers have been in positive territory since July. The number of Americans who say they disapprove of Obama's job performance has fallen to 45 percent, down 5 points from Dec. 16-18.

I’d like to think that “thinking Americans” are asking “approval — based on WHAT?”

“Let’s keep focused on defeating HUSSEIN no matter what happens in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida....”

I wish it would go that way, but it won’t. The gop has had a circular firing squad going at full tilt for the last 6 months.

Sarah Palin - gone.
Michelle Bachmann - almost gone.
Herman Cain - gone.
Newt Gingrich - still in the running but badly damaged.
Ron Paul - the latest target.

In the end, barky wins a three way race between himself, mittens, and Ron Paul. The only good news, and it’ll be thin solace indeed, is that the gop will be reformed after the fiasco runs it’s course. If it isn’t destroyed in the process.

This is due 100% to Romney’s trashing of the other republican candidates...him and his surrogates, some of whom might also be candidates themselves.

See 2008 before you fully believe that. Also Obama has voter ID fraud and moveon.org and the NBP’s all ready and waiting to help him win.(P.S. Let’s just hope this is a freak little bump for him.)Is it too late for Christie to jump in as even with the economy the MSM will play for Obama and it will be right vs left and Obama will win.

“I hate to tell you this but after ten years of war, you will find it really hard sledding to get voters to give a crap about Iraq.”

My point was not about Iraq but regarding his highness hussein obama. We now have a POTUS who can’t be bothered to engage world leaders. In fact it was reported he did not personally speak with the Iraqi Prime Minister for over a year as negotiations broke down. He delegates all that to Biden. It’s pathological laziness and a “I dunno” strategy so he can’t be blamed if something goes FUBAR.

Voters need to know about this behavior to make an informed decision. MSM isn’t goin to tell them. It’s up to the GOP to light barry up.

The problem I have, and trust me, I'm no fan of Mittens or the GOP establishment in general, is that the opposition is much worse than Lenin. It's worse than Stalin, Hitler, Al Capone, and Kim Il Jong or Ding-Dong or whatever his name--the North Korean monster who just died. I honest to God do not believe this nation will survive in any worthwhile form if Obama and his Gestapo of Eric Holder, Pelosi, Reid, the ACORNs and other thug nuts, the SEIU goons, the Black Panthers and the crooked Rat Party retains power until 2016.

The Rat party needs to be damned to eternal hell for forcing this Marxist illegitimate Kenyan fraud on this country. I know it's not Christlike, but I truly hate those people for what they've done to this country.

Honestly,the only person I've ever wanted to replace Obama is Sarah Palin but if she won't, then someone has to.

The graph half way down on RCP certainly is depressing and says a whole lot more about American pop idol culture and it says about the election that is still 11 months away. Zero hasn't looked this good on RCP average since last July, so I guess all the pollsters are lying to us?

It just continues to boggle my mind how so many believe in what polls say??

All the pollsters do is manufacture opinion, all the pollsters are either Rep establishment or MSM, really the same thing.

I have no horse in the race! The pollsters now decided it would be fun if they lowered Newt`s ratings, they started this a couple weeks ago.

The masses hear the new polling data and they accept it, buy into it. The pollsters phony polls become reality once they are released to a dumb public.

Then the phony manufactured polls are posted at RCP, people look for trends from the phony polls???

It would be funny if it was not so serious.

Are people ever going to wake up??? NO!

The pollsters are playing everybody for fools

Look at who they sampled. First, adults not likely voters. Plus under sampling of Republicans.
901. Generally speaking, do you usually think of yourself as (a Democrat), (a Republican), an independent or what?

12/18/11
Democrat 32
Republican 25
Independent 37
Other (vol.) 5
No opinion 2

It doesn't help that republican candidates and their henchmen have been gleefully stabbing each other in the back on national tv. The squalid infighting makes obama look good by comparison.

Been on FR lately? That makes the TV look mild. Basically the theme of many is "We don't care if Obama is reelected, we won't vote for anyone who doesn't have the initials SP."

Is it a poll of adults or “likely” voters?
There is, of course, a difference. If someone loves Obama and thinks he walks on water, he or she doesn’t matter if they have no intention of showing up at the polls. The same goes for anyone who likes the eventual GOP nominee but has no intention of voting.

In previous polls, I’ve noticed the percentage of democratics polled is greater than the percentage of republicans.

Also, 11 months is an eternity in politics. Alot can and will happen in 2012. Expect the unemployment rate to go up after all the Christmas season hires lose their jobs.

I do not understand why everyone is freakin’ out ...

The President had a mildly good month - what with the [bogus] lowering of the unemployment figures and his “win” over the “tax cut” ...

An associated bump in the polls was inevitable ...

Now for the good news ...

FIRST, the “tax cut” fight is coming back in 2 weeks - this time, people are gonna realize that the current two-week extension includes a little-known tax provision that INCREASES the fees paid to Fannie and Freddie. Anyone who closes on a house in the next 2 weeks is gonna find that they are going to pay an ADDITIONAL $10K in fees [for a $200K mortgage] over the life of the loan ...

SECOND, the seasonal temporary Christmas jobs are going to start to go away in January. These people are going right back to the unemployment rolls. By the end of January, the UE is gonna be back up to around 9% ...

My sister works on Wall Street and says that all of the financial firms TOTALLY discount ALL of the financial AND unemployment data that is generated by the government between after Thanksgiving and January 31st since it is skewed ...

So, Obama is gonna be right back where he was before the season started - with the MSM calling the bad news “unepected” ...

Unemployment will be below 8% and voters will see it as getting better.

It might be presented that way, but it is "improving" now because those who had 99 weeks of benefits are starting to run out, and when they are off the list, they don't count any more. It is as bogus as calculating the CPI without energy and food prices and using that to establish inflation.

Anyone that believes that any candidate the Republicans nominate will beat Obama is going to be extremely disappointed.

Amen. I'm sometimes puzzled by the easiness to underestimate 0bama's reelection chance by some Freepers. No, I don't believe any conservative can beat 0bama. Otherwise, we'd have Senator Angle today.

The feds use the lowest possible number, with the minimal factors involved to get to that 8.6%. By election time, it'll be engineered down to below 8%. This is one of the huge advantages Obama has.. a low bar to cross, only having to provide the sheeple with enough "evidence" that we've turned the corner.

Even though they can cook the books on the teevee, the people sitting at home or scratching to bring in a buck are going to know it's BS, and there are millions of them.

This is where the GOP needs to hold the administration's feet to the fire and pressure them to release real numbers, but they are unlikely to do so out of fear it will be spun back at them.

Whether it’s 4-in-10 or 5-in-10 who APPROVE of this idiot after all we’ve seen of him, the reality is that 2012 was probably lost 21 years ago when anti-Reagan suburban liberal schoolteachers were breeding.

The real challenge is getting some of the 4-in-10 to change from loving welfare and lying communists to preferring hard work, deferred gratification and capitalism.

THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE TILL THE NEXT GENERATION AT THE EARLIEST.

And that’s why the Establishment GOP is concentrating on the 5th-in-10 wishy washy indy-idiot who vacillates between liking Obama and disapproving.

I'm not so sure. There is a satisfaction which comes with doing a job and doing it well, and something else: self-respect.

Granted, there are those who have acquired a taste for the ersatz of "self-esteem" they've been fed all their parasitic lives, but for many, one taste of self-respect can be a game-changer.

That won't save all, probably not even half who get the chance, but it will get through to some.

They'll be the ones who help the following generation advance, if our 'caring' government quits lavishing them with the means to keep slacking.

OTOH, when we go broke because none in the Federal Government had the guts to dry up the teat and wean them, there will be Hell to pay for a while, and fewer to support afterward.

This is one of the huge advantages Obama has.. a low bar to cross, only having to provide the sheeple with enough "evidence" that we've turned the corner.

I see this complaint often, but we have only ourselves to blame. The "feds" (BLS) publish the real numbers quite openly CLICK HERE. WE are the ones who accept Axelrod's marketing terms. The MSM uses both as needed to make things look better or worse, and our side goes right along with it talking about "above or below 8%."

U1: Percentage of labor force unemployed 15 weeks or longer.
U2: Percentage of labor force who lost jobs or completed temporary work.
U3: Official unemployment rate per the ILO definition occurs when people are without jobs and they have actively looked for work within the past four weeks.[2]
U4: U3 + "discouraged workers", or those who have stopped looking for work because current economic conditions make them believe that no work is available for them.
U5: U4 + other "marginally attached workers", or "loosely attached workers", or those who "would like" and are able to work, but have not looked for work recently.
U6: U5 + Part time workers who want to work full time, but cannot due to economic reasons (underemployment).

Note: "Marginally attached workers" are added to the total labour force for unemployment rate calculation for U4, U5, and U6. 
The BLS revised the CPS in 1994 and among the changes the measure representing the official unemployment rate was renamed U3 instead of U5.[80]

That may be true for a farmer, and it may be true for a "hard-working" thief too.

It's hard to predict, and I don't even think we all have a good idea of what the "average American" heart/character has left right now, much less predicting what he'll do when the going gets rough.

I'd like to think it will be more like 9/11 than OWS, but I'm not so sure...depends.

In 9/11 I think the first reaction was caring for each other, then the megaphone "they're gonna hear from all of us" fighting.

In OWS we see hating each other (classes) as the first reaction, then incoherence.

Interesting times, unfortunately.

Hussein is surging in the polls which means that Republicans MUST CONSIDER ELECTIBILITY next week when Primaries start, and everyone knows the only one WHO CAN BEAT HUSSEIN IS ROMNEY so therefore everyone must look at how popular Hussein is and forget Gingroch and Perry etc and NOMINATE ROMNEY!!!

. It's too soon to draw sweeping conclusions, but it seems that the standoff with House Republicans over the payroll tax cut did no damage at all to the president — and a further climb in the polls could mean that the White House won a significant public relations victory during the payroll tax cut debate.

With the media in his pocket, Obama never was anything BUT an public relations scam.

It's too soon to draw sweeping conclusions, but it seems that the standoff with House Republicans over the payroll tax cut did no damage at all to the president — and a further climb in the polls could mean that the White House won a significant public relations victory during the payroll tax cut debate.

“Alot will happen before the election. The Republican nominee hopefully will hammer him and the scandals should keep him down. As long as we don’t have another John mccain that was so afraid of him, we should be ok.”
