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.
