Posted on 03/12/2012 3:57:31 AM PDT by Past Your Eyes
WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama's job approval rating, weighed down by soaring gas prices, has plunged below 50 per cent, giving his political opponents what appears to be an opening in the November election, a new opinion poll showed.
The survey by ABC News and The Washington Post indicated that only 46 per cent of Americans now approved of the way Obama is handling his job and 50 per cent disapproved.
The situation was a reversal from early February when 50 per cent approved of the president's performance and 46 per cent disapproved.
According to the survey, the drop was attributed to soaring gas prices threatening to crimp America's slow recovery from a recession.

Sanctions on Iran to keep Israel from attacking in an election year are pushing them up.
Finding out that surrendering (Afghanistan) is easier said than done. Once you tell the side you were supporting that you decided to abandon them things can get messy.
One of the news people on ABC this Week actually admitted that it was Obama who killed tax reform after agreeing to a deal, I was in shock.
Maybe Democrats victory dance came too soon. Expect more and more talk about how Republicans are trying to 'roll back the clock' on contraceptives. Everytime they do Republicans should reply that Dems are trying to divert attention from gas prices.
I wouldn’t put anything past a guy who’s down for infanticide. The man is a monster. Compared to what he’s capable of, we’ve gotten off easy so far.
The dead don’t need to drive to the polls so what do they care about the price of gas. Ditto for the absentee virtual voters. And then there are the dem voters that live right there inside the polling machines... they don’t need to drive to the polls either.
Jimmah didn’t look worried in 80 either. Means nothing
Also, the dead and voters with No ID, are historically RAT voters!!
“Jimmah didnt look worried in 80 either. Means nothing.”
Yeah; but Jimmuh was (is) a simple-minded dolt with no real agenda, floundering from year to year. Hussein is a scheming, pure evil, man with a plan to destroy America. He’s truly terrifying, while Carter was incompetent. IMHO... I could be wrong.
Here is something I would like to see go “NATIONAL”
Purchase a book of “Post-it Note Pads” Place the note pads in your vehicle(s) along with a “Magic Marker”. When stopping at the pump for gas, take a “Post-it” note and write the following “How is that Hope and Change Working Out for You? After pumping your gas, place the “Post-it” Note on the pump, immediately below the “price-per-gallon”. Next driver to use the pump will get the message. If this goes Nationwide, think of the potential impact it may have on white, (we will never get the black vote) moderate, voters.
Yep, spread the word.
With post-its, you couldn’t be in trouble for vandalism.
But, look for it to become a federal offense, by executive order, to “deface” a gas pump.
This poll is way understated, it's just Americans, not registered voters and even the great unwashed won't give the bamster more than 46% approval.
It's only March so polls don't really matter but if the gas prices stay this high or higher, obama will be beaten by my neighbors dog.
The Donald told the Friends this a.m. that if prices go up more over the summer, Barry is finished. But then he also said that Mitt had the nomination wrapped up and there was no reason for the others to stay in the race.
Razzy has ‘bammers at 44% strongly disapprove with 44% total approval.
“Fox News just said that 65% disapprove of his handling of the situation. Ain’t that a surprise?”
Well, if this is accurate it means that the other 35% are living in a dream state, totally unconnected to reality. That is scary.
But you can still find idiots who say there is no media bias favoring democrats, some idiots even say there is bias but it goes the other way!
We are screwed with the Marxist Obama.
Also we are screwed with Romney.
I don’t like Santorum either.
In my dream world Sarah Palin would run, become president and leave Todd and marry me.We could fix the U.S.A with her drill baby drill, her reduce government , pay down the debt, my deport illegals and my make things in the U.S.A again.
I believe that a certain [ercentage of the 46% lives overseas and are not directly affected by THE 1 and his policies. They are blissfully unaware of what’s really going on here on a daily basis.
I do not see why you would call anyone a moron for focusing on the price of gasoline. But then, I (privately) call them morons when they send their kids to public school, where the dumbing down happens and they emerge without the ability to recognize a radical Marxist.
