Posted on 06/22/2012 6:41:32 AM PDT by C210N
Intensity of support or opposition can have an impact on campaigns. Currently, 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22 (see trends).

Wow. Be on alert now, as this man may become more dangerous as he’s backed into a corner - as will his braindead diehard supporters. Much mischief and mayhem could be ahead.
In February, 2009, Obama said that if he had not turned the economy around within 3 years, his would be a one-term proposition. Instead of turning the economy around, we got Obamacare, which is about to be ruled unconstitutional. The man wasted his time and ours, and our children’s money.
As the days go by and this number gets worse for O, look for more polarizing, divisive, “us vs. them”, playing on guilt in search of votes memes to come up.
With Clinton it was triangulation. With Obama, it’s division. The politics of division are the only politics he knows.
Our best defense seems to be having everyone expect it. It seems to be making it harder for the mischief. They really got burned with the Trayvon Martin and the Sandra Fluke attempts.
He’s been at -22 before many times. A week in the negative 20’s would be a more reliable indicator.
The Abyss Index was created by a FReeper -- I'd give credit if I knew who. The Abyss Index is (Strongly Approve + Somewhat Approve) minus Strongly Disapprove. In other words, the difference between all "Approves" (Strongly and Somewhat), and Strongly Disapprove. As of today, a total of 44% of the polling sample at least somewhat approve of Obama's performance, while 45% strongly disapprove, giving an Abyss Index of -1%.
Yes, indeed... he's even been at -26. However, I believe going from yesterday's -14 to -26 overnight is unprecedented.
Oops. Meant going from -14 to -22 overnight is unprecedented.
Yeah, but Florida news is saying Obamugabe is winning.
True...but I think his 45% strongly disapprove is a new record.
Interesting. Obviously, when the Abyss or Strongly Dis gets to 50%, he’s officially toast.
If you examine the overall statistics, his popularity was even lower before and he rebounded.
Its a long way till November, the Electorate is fickle, unforseen events may occur, Romney can stumble, Obama can pull some kind of “surprise”.
We have to keep fighting and never give up until the Election Results are in. Keep slugging away at Obama and his policies.
It would be a deadly mistake to become complacent. America cannot survive another four years of this Marxist Muslim Racist in office.
It could be that Rasmussen make a mistake and left out some brainless Dumbie strongholds.
It’s a huge overnight plunge (-14 to -22)... and I don’t think the EP has had time to figure in...
Rev 12:12 comes to mind...
Between Nov 6 and Jan 20, this man is going to go “scorched earth” on America.
Obviously an over-sampling of people who "Press 2" to hear La cuestión.
Watch for something audacious. "pardoning" 30 million illegals comes to mind.
Yeah and the same poll of people did enjoy their meal with Elvis last night lol
good thing he has no Congress... or he would be burying us in more dung....
We've all read stories over the past couple years about the strange personality traits he exhibits. Especially his aloofness and coldness towards those who thought themselves close to the man after becoming politically expendable.
When the make believe world of a totally self-absorbed child finally comes tumbling down, bad things tend to happen.
If his numbers continue to deteriorate, nothing would surprise me.
He has been at 45% before, rarely, but that is the record disapproval. I read upthread that his index dropped from 14% to 22% overnight. Doesn’t Rasputin use a 3 day rolling average? If so, then this 22% will go much lower once the higher ratings drop off.
Apparently, 23% of the population strongly approves of the destruction of this country.
How did we arrive at such a population?
No, he hit 45% on 8/23/2011 and 8/25/2011. His Abyss Index of 1 is also something he hit before in 2011. Like I said, let's see what next week's numbers say before considering this something other than a polling statistical artifact.
Obama is unprecedented! And we need to unpresident him in November.
Yes, it's going to get a LOT more unconstitutional before it's over. The mask is completely off this Marxist.
That's easy to answer. Just think of that woman at a rally of his back after he'd just taken over who blabbered on and on about not having to pay her mortgage and gas for her car anymore. Or her friend who said he'd be taking the money from his "stash".
yep. I agree.. to energize his base, the hardcore lefties, to the point of rapture, look for something completely bizarre and so blatantly unconstitutional that it will boggile the mind and stun and delight his disciples, (the press)... I’m think banning of all handguns by executive order.. something like that... or an move of troops to Syria, again without approval of congress. there are probably 10 such scenarios.
It could also be statistical "noise," which is more likely.
Still, here's hoping that it holds.
Yes, the leaches comprise a very large contingent of that 23%, but there are virulent America-haters in there as well.
The early seizure of the public schools was a shrewd strategy of the Left. We’re now seeing the putrid crop of that early sowing.
This has to be an error. That data point does not make sense. I’d like to believe it but I don’t.
They are called sheeple for a reason.
Stock Market? Dead for the foreseeable future. We are back tot he 70’s. If it only stays flat we aren’t losing as much. Nobody is going to retire on this market. It is only a harvest of money that is losing value. If it does not fall below 10,000 again I’ll be absolutely astounded... no buyers to speak of if the fed no longer prints money to buy stocks. It will recover someday but not soon enough to save some from destitution. It will take years for things to get better.
Even if Romney is successful and if he does things that need to be done... both big ifs, it will take at least two to three years for the economy to even begin to spool up. The leviathan that is our economy and out national psyche is sliding downhill at an ever increasing speed. That slide will not be stopped quickly and it will not be turned around and pushed back up the hill easily. And don’t forget, we have at least two generations of people who are basically freedom and republic ignorant.
How did we arrive at such a population?
We taught some [illogical], and we imported some [illegally].
Just a thought here but I have a strong feeling the Obama team would initiate this message in late September if his numbers continue to tank: “...If Obama looses, we (the administration) will not be responsible for the outcry from various parts of the country. We will not be able to control the anger, frustration, and rage as a result of Obama being voted out...”
This would send a message to his base to go nuts, the MSM would back the massage and help proliferate , and scare the independents into voting for Obama - just out of fear. Meanwhile, Obama would be able to stand in the background and watch.
And lets remember those that disapprove are not all conservatives that have woken up. Many are extreme liberals that are not happy that Obama has not been “progressive enough”.
I pray that this is correct, but let's not count chickens yet. Remember the usurper has placed two of his followers on the court and there were already some leftist judicial activists there, so nothing is certain.
I don’t think the indies are that fickle. Consider Ras’s numbers for strong disapproval at 45%. These are not swayable by lamestreamers; these are not likely to change unless they get fundamentally transformed in some way. Of course, zer0 is trying...
This is great news, but I want to see how this plays out State-by-State. The Electoral College system, not the popular vote alone, decides who wins a Presidential election.
Obama’s Executive Privilege decision was a game-changer because now MSNBC/NBC/ABC/CNN/PBS/NYTimes have no choice but to cover Fast and Furious.
At first, their readers/listeners will buy Carney’s ridiculous assertion that Bush started it and Holder ended it but now that the very existence of F&F has been inserted into the liberal cocoon, eventually so will the relevant facts of the matter, facts that are very damaging to Holder, and, when fully revealed, possibly even to the President himself.
I think this is a good time to pin down our liberal-leaning friends and acquaintances by pointing out how insular their worldview must be when a topic as important as F&F (as will soon become very evident) can be obscured from view for over 18 months by their “trusted” news sources. They truly are in a liberal cocoon, protected from news that might disturb their worldview.
Just a week ago, as the contempt vote was being scheduled in committee, but before Obama’s privilege claim was asserted, I found yet another viewer of liberal news who didn’t even know what F&F was, much less what the issues involved were.
These people really do view themselves as well-informed, and frankly, above us in intellect and demeanor. But this “breaking” news of F&F now shakes both their worldview and their assessment of how well informed they are. We need to use F&F as a wedge between them and their liberal news outlets, and attempt to get them to realize just how cocooned they really have been the past 3 1/2 years. Opportunities like this are rare, and we need to make the most of it.
Once the facts are made clear, a good many people will actually change their minds on a matter, and the facts are clearly on our side here, but were, until now, unknown to many decent people on the Left.
. . and our children's children. . and theirs. . What is it now, something like 52 Trillion in unfunded liabilities long term? Destroying capitalism is Obama's goal.
LOL - I love the smell of Nixon, early in the morning (Executive Privilege) It smells like an Obama loss. -14 to -22 in one day is the largest change I have seen on Ras.... a change of -8 implies that yesterdays polling by itself musty have been on the order of -35...
