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.

Here's why the 50 percent threshold is important, per Gallup managing editor Jeffrey M. Jones:

FOUR MEN LEFT BEHIND!
“. . . without any major-moving events in the past few days”
Okay . . .
drip libya drip Libya drip Libya, now I see why Romney didnt bring up Libya in the 3rd debate. No sense in letting barry build another strawman
But he saved Big Bird!!!
Romney just totally does not need his name on any of this.
Ob was just waiting to attach him to it, just name association.
“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.”
OBAMA MUDERED THOSE MEN!
Think that’s major enough?
Mr. Obama, “sir”, America is going to leave you behind.
Did they type this with a straight face???
It couldn’t happen to a nicer fellow.
Benghazi revelations having an effect?
The MSM people are out of the loop.
This is a story completely exposing their liberal bias and how irrelevant they are.
Libya. The talk shows over exposure “bullshi@@er” comment horrible negative ads. More people see of Obama, the less they like him.
His fake smile and jovial manner that suckered in the ignorant in 08 has been exposed.
The illusion of Obama has been unmasked.
Exactly that would of thrown barry a lifeline. Every day another cut. The only savior for barry is if all his skids voted early enough because each day just keeps getting worse.
Some predicted this when biden threw the intelligence community under the bus during the Ryan debate
Why of course.
On other threads, there’s discussion of some of his disgusting behavior...seems he just doesn’t care any more nor do his sychophants as to what lowlifes they appear to be.
The double-entendre Obama Ad, put out by his own campaign not even an independent group, aimed at young voters? Calling Romney dirty names? Appearing to give the finger in gestures during a speech slamming Romney?
All of this, ON TOP of evidence of SERIAL LYING and dereliction of duty in regard to the Americans left to die in Benghazi...
Spot on.. If Romney would have taken the bait, Oblamebush had a strawman ready to explain it away before 60 million people, FREE OF CHARGE.. When Romney outsmarted him, by not bringing it to the fore, he was stymied and never had a chance to recover, without making it an issue in his mind only.. BRILLIANT!
If Barack confessed that he played it easy in Benghazi because he didn’t want to offend our new Libyan friends, he’d be more respected than in the present situation, where conservative commentators are wondering openly about what the sam hill went wrong and why. This is something too heavy for politicians to spin away.
Buckwheat is cooking up flat pancakes, and people want nothing to do with what he’s serving.
The pancakes are moldy, the butter is rancid, the syrup is watered down and the coffee is cold.
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.
I first voted in 1964 and voted for Goldwater, God bless his soul and keep him. I’ll turn 70 in December. Every time the DemonRat won from ‘64 on, including ‘64, I felt bad vibes that told me the Evil Thing was going to win. I absolutely don’t feel those bad vibes this year, instead, it feels like 1980 when Ronald Reagan, our greatest president since George Washington, won. Be of good cheer.
American voters don't care about jobs, national security or the deficit. Americans just want free birth control and free abortions. ‘Right to choose’ means ‘right to access’ means you paying for single wimmins free abortions and birth control. That is why wimmin will re-elect BOB.
I learned this from Rachel Maddow and CO and she is always right.
Yes, but see-that’s not a ‘major-moving event’-at least, not to the commies in DC and their libtard sycophants...
I hope there is a special place in hell for such despicable cockroaches!
“Some predicted this when biden threw the intelligence community under the bus during the Ryan debate”
Very good point. They are very attuned to that moron’s tendencies, especially when he used to do it as a matter of routine when he chaired Foreign Relations in the Senate.
You've got it. Too many people in this country either served in the military or had loved ones serve - and the idea that a United States President would stand by and watch four men die - for nothing - is sickening. I can't even think of a lie Team Obama could come up with to fool democrats on this issue.
Rachel Maddow doesn’t understand many women have sons, fathers, brothers and sisters in the Military. And those women do not want the President of the United States to watch ‘snuff films’ of their loved ones’ slow deaths.
It’s rather obvious that obama wants people to get those votes in before they learn something that might change their minds.
If this guy wins he’s going to be a dictator like we’ve never seen. I wouldn’t be surprised if he disolves congress. Or tries.
She asked Mr. Woods what Biden said to him. You could tell it made him uneasy but I think he was going to say that he couldn’t say it on TV. Apparently Jeanine saw it and asked him another question.
And he let them be murdered by people two Seals almost took out. A Special Ops group from any of the four services would have won the battle in about 2 minutes.
Obama watched the rape and murder of a US Ambassador live as well as 3 other men and did nothing. He lied about it, and the lies are coming out and there is no new news that might be affecting Obama’s approval rating. Really?? IBD must not know about Al Gore’s invention that let’s people get news without watching the networks or reading any of the big name newspapers.
