Skip to comments.Obama's Approval Rating Has Collapsed In The Past 3 Days
Posted on 10/27/2012 6:58:40 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Gallup's daily tracking poll today — which also showed Obama losing 51-46 to Republican nominee Mitt Romney among likely voters — puts the president's approval rating at just 46 percent.
That's a staggering 7-point swing from Wednesday, when Obama's approval rating sat at 53 percent. And it marks Obama's lowest point since late September.
Obama's disapproval rating, meanwhile, jumped to 49 percent. That accounts for another 7-point change since Wednesday, meaning the total swing has been 14 points. The disapproval rating is the president's highest since mid-August.
A lot of this could be statistical noise, considering such wild swings without any major-moving events in the past few days are extremely rare.
But though Gallup's numbers are lower than other polls, there seems to be a trend developing: Every recent poll has put it below 50 percent.
Real Clear Politics
Here's why the 50 percent threshold is important, per Gallup managing editor Jeffrey M. Jones:

It's just that it's less than 10 days to the election, and so the pollsters finally have to start reporting their real numbers.
I hope that now, wherever they are, they/she finally understand/s.
Hey, Buckwheat is Coward in Chief. Coward of the country.
COL. HUNT, and others I can't remember. Ty Woods father and siblings, Ann Coulter & Pat Caddell.
Jennine was as furious as we are, Col Hunt called Obama a Coward. Pat Caddell nearly in tears at how the MSN's are handling this.
Go set your recorders, DON'T MISS THIS.
Gee, too bad. Chicago thugary and lack of leadership doesn’t seem to be going over too well with the voteing public.
Romney could have said nothing to compare to the breaking news. He wisely decided to let events kick The Disaster’s ass over Libya and hammered him in other areas.
“Mothers he would let your kids die if it were to his advantage.” So much for the gender gap.
His foreign policy has collapsed over the last three weeks and his economic policy has collapsed over the last three months.
Vote him the hell out of office before the entire country collapses!
Some of the slow breathers are beginning to realize that Obama is a coward, a liar and doesn’t give a damn about the lives of Americans.
I want Mitt to win with such a significant lead that there would be no credence given to any bleatings from the liberals about 'voter fraud', AND he could say he has a mandate, because he would have gotten a larger percentage of the vote than Obama got in 2008!
Remarkable how clairvoyant most of us FReepers were in ‘07 and ‘08. Of course, we did something horribly racist and anti-social. We actually sought out and read the truth about the Illegal. The HORRORS of it!!
It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Sorry about your luck Barkey. /s
can anybody who has been right on in his/her predictions for the last couple of decades tell me solidly that Romney is going to win this?......I’m am a nevous nellie..
Captain Walker is reported missing and is believed dead. His widow, Mrs. Walker, gives birth to their son, Tommy. Years later, Captain Walker returns home and discovers that his wife has found a new lover. Captain Walker confronts the two and the lover is subsequently killed in the struggle. To cover up the incident, Tommy's parents tell him that he didn't see or hear it, and that he will never tell anyone about the incident. Traumatised, Tommy subsequently becomes blind, deaf, and mute. Now in a semi-catatonic state, Tommy's subconscious manifests as a figure dressed in silvery robes who guides him on a journey of enlightenment. Years pass and Tommy becomes a young man, now interpreting physical sensations as music.
During Christmas, Tommy's parents worry that his soul is at risk of damnation, since he is unaware of Jesus or prayer. One day, Tommy is left alone with his cousin Kevin, who bullies and tortures him for his own amusement. A pimp referred to as "the Hawker" is introduced and peddles his prostitute's sexual prowess, reputed to heal the blind, the deaf, and the mute. Tommy is ultimately taken to this woman, who calls herself the Acid Queen; she tries to coax Tommy into full consciousness with hallucinogenic drugs and sex. When this does not work, Tommy's parents reluctantly leave him temporarily in the care of his Uncle Ernie, an alcoholic child molester. He takes this opportunity to abuse Tommy without fear of being caught. Eventually, Tommy is discovered to have a talent for pinball and quickly defeats the local champion of the game.
In yet another attempt at 'curing' him, Tommy's father finds a medical specialist. After numerous tests, the doctor informs Tommy's parents that his disabilities are psychosomatic rather than physical. Meanwhile, Tommy is internally trying to reach out to them. His mother continues to try to reach him, but becomes frustrated that he ignores her while staring directly at a mirror, despite his apparent inability to see. Out of this frustration, she smashes the mirror and brings Tommy back to reality. This "miracle cure" becomes a public sensation and Tommy attains a guru-like status. Thereafter he assumes a messianic mantle and attempts to enlighten those willing to follow him. During one of Tommy's sermons, a reverend's daughter, Sally Simpson, sneaks out of her home to meet with Tommy. As the police try to control the crowd, Sally is thrown from the stage and suffers a gash on her face. Tommy opens his own home to anyone willing to join him and urges them to bring as many people with them as they can. When his house becomes too small to accommodate them all, a camp is built with the intended purpose of spreading Tommy's teachings. Tommy's Uncle Ernie assists him at this camp, but uses it as an opportunity for profit and to exploit Tommy's disciples. Now with all necessary resources at his disposal, Tommy instructs his followers to blind, deafen and mute themselves in order to truly reach enlightenment. They eventually reject his methods and ideology after finding that his enlightenment is not reached by being cured, but by discovering a state of awareness while blind, deaf, and mute.
When Bill Ayers scripted Obama's life to unfold the way it has, he may have been guilty of "subconscious plagiarism" of Pete Townshend's work.
Now fortunately for us, like the fictional Tommy, the fictional Obama is facing his rejection and it will probably be Obama that marries the rock musician he met in California.
I remember Dick Morris saying once that once in the office, you campaign by being presidential.
I have to say, one of the things that surprised me about O was that he actually ran for a 2nd term. He obviously doesn’t like the actual work of being president.
Campaigning, unless you are in the profession, is not an end unto itself.
I agree, and also haven’t relied on the polls. The “tell” for me was when Scott Walker, after a political Armageddon, won by a larger margin than originally in WI. Walker, although a fine man, really wasn’t just himself; he was the Anti-Omaba, and the Anti-Obama won in liberal WI in spite of all the unions, radicals, and DemonRats could do. With WI down, there was no way the Illegal was going to win.
“MUST watch the re run of Judge Jennine Pirro tonight if possible”.....
Thanks, don’t watch any TV, Goggled her. Fox 12am. Giving her a view. DF
Benghazi is taking a toll despite the MSM’s best efforts to ignore and suppress the story.
O’s approval rating is underwater - I don’t see how he can bounce back - not in the time that’s left. The damage is done.
