Skip to comments.Obama foreign policy approval rating drops in new poll

President Barack Obama's once-robust approval rating on foreign policy has slipped since August: He's down five points among all respondents in the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, and 12 points among independents.
The survey, teased here, came after a wave of Muslim anger at an anti-Islam movie online unfurled across the Middle East and North Africa, and unknown gunmen stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in clashes that claimed the life of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The poll found that 49 percent of the respondents approved of Obama's handling of world affairs, down from 54 percent in August. Forty-six percent disapproved.

Well, even Hillary and Susie Rice have to admit, blaming the war in the Middle East on a YouTube clip was kind of a goofy idea.
The lesson here is that almost nothing will drop a president’s approval ratings on foreign policy into the toilet faster than the sacking of a U.S. consulate and the murder of a U.S. ambassador in some Third World sh!t-hole.
I've made 1600 phone calls from home to New Hampshire in the last six days using the system set up by the campaign. Even 100 calls will make a difference. Who will join me?
Well, DUH. What kind of an idiot would consider Obomas global meltdown a good thing?
Even all that work by the MSM couldn’t help BAMMY ON THIS ONE!
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
Obama’s NEW WORLD ORDER “flexibility” foreign policy...
You dont say.....I wonder whtever could be the problemo?......
Obamaworld is a madhouse.
Obama is NOT winning any group he lost in 2008. He is NOT doing better with ANY group, not Jews, not women, not Young voters, not Blacks and not Hispanics. He is NOT closing the gap with any group he lost in 2008.
BUT because he has the Power Ranger bloc locked up he is able to stay in the race.
