Skip to comments.Gallup: Obama's Policies are Unpopular

RUSH: The poll is out. I find it curious, maybe even a little fascinating. "Americans Disapprove of Obama Policy on Nearly Every Issue -- According to a Gallup poll, 42% of Americans approve of Obama's gun policies while 54% disapprove. On taxes, 41% approve and 57% disapprove. On the economy, 39% approve and 60% disapprove. On 'the situation in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians,' 36% approve and 55% disapprove. And on the federal budget deficit, 31% approve and 65% disapprove.
"The only area in which Obama gains the support of a majority is on 'national defense' issues, but the poll was conducted before North Korea reportedly tested a nuclear weapon on Monday as Obama seeks to diminish America's nuclear arsenal."
So you have the North Koreans nuking up, the Iranians nuking up, under Obama's watch, and we're getting rid of ours. But, I mean, this is the Gallup poll. Let me give you the numbers again. I'll just give you the disapprove numbers. People, Americans disapprove on practically every issue with Obama. Gun policy, 54 disapprove. Obama's tax policy, 57 disapprove. Obama's economic policy, 60% disapprove. Situation in the Middle East, Israelis and Palestinians, 55% disapprove. Federal budget deficit, 65% disapprove, yet the guy got elected and is running around acting like he was reelected with a supermajority and an accompanying mandate. He did get reelected.
Yeah, I think there's an explanation for it. What? What did you say? Well, it's simplistic to say that voters are idiots. I mean, certain low-information voters are somewhat ignorant, but this polling data includes those in the low-information voter subgroup. I'll tell you what I think it is. I think it's Obama's ad campaign destroying Romney. Two things. We're gonna have to face the reality of all of those lies, vicious, he's a felon, he doesn't care when some guy's wife died, he's okay with murder, he hates dogs, he's a rich guy with money outside the country. He doesn't care about you. There's no question that stuff was effective. There's no question people believed it, didn't want to take a chance with it. And you couple that with the realization that four million Republicans who did vote in '08 didn't vote in 2012.
I'm gonna chalk those people up to being conservatives fed up with the Republican Party moving to the center. I think that's your explanation. You can say they're idiots, but Obama didn't run on any issues. All Obama did was run on what a dangerous reprobate Mitt Romney was. That's the sum total the Obama campaign.
RUSH: You know, there's one thing the Republicans can take away from this Gallup poll. Americans disagree with Obama on nearly everything by large margins. You Republicans can stand up and voice your disagreement with Obama all day, and a majority of Americans will agree with you. You do not need to be afraid of disagreeing with him.
Well, like the dictator said, it’s his second term, he doesn’t have to care. If he was willing to ride roughshod over the Constitution and the American people’s wishes in his first term, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
[Obama's unpopular policies] == [reservoir of resentment] == [motive force for bashing Republicans].
Keep those Low Information Voters coming!
and The Stupid Party will see these results, and continue to fret about the “big tent” and other garbage. Actually, the establishment won’t even see that polling. They only know what the MSM tells them.
his approval ratings in the polls could go down to 0.0000000001%, but (from what I read in the newspaper, anyway) the American public voted him 4 more years ....
The American public didn’t reelect him. The ignorant aka uninformed voters did
Fraud “re-elected” him
Low courage candidates + low information establishment consultants X 20 years = low information voters.

Dear leader wants minimum wage to be $9 per hour. What a cheap bass turd. Why not 1 million per hour, why not one trillion per hour? It will drive unemployment higher and give goobermint more reasons to say the private sector does not work. They are stocking up on ammo if they exercise their options. I do not trust this regime at all. The SOTU speech is total BS.
It doesn’t matter, they know how to steal the elections anyway.
Well, it’s the same as with the Ras surveys... voters don’t like Obama’s policies, but they can’t quit him, just the same. They’re in love with the “cool black guy.”
I see that gas in my hometown has risen from $2.99 to now $3.69. I personally hope it gets to $20 per gallon as payback to the bastards who voted for him. Gas prices, among other skyrocketing expenses will affect us all, but at this point, I don't give a sh_t any longer. Whatever meltdown it takes, to get rid of 0dumb0 & his scurvy bilch RATs, the demoRATs, will be worth it!
The sooner our country breaks apart into CW II, the sooner that maybe we can fight to restore it, or at least divide into 4-5 regional countries. I will move to TX and hopefully at least 8-10 other states would join as well.
Thats only IF the polls are not corrupt.. which they have been proven to be..
Polls are proven propaganda tactics.. which is sedition.. and treason..
ANY pollester IS NOT YOUR FRIEND...
and those that believe them are enablers..
and those that report them are their agents..
This should come as no surprise, but nobama doesn’t care. He just got reelected. He’s got four more years to take the country apart piece by piece and build a turd world country with him as dick tator for life.
Like I said, nobama doesn’t care about some stupid ratings. He doesn’t have to.
If Republicans were a little smarter they would take polls such as this and use them to back up a strong resistance to Obama’s policies - if Republicans were a little smarter.....
He may be wildly unpopular with a majority of Americans, but it’s a little difficult to unseat a sitting president when his pals stuff the ballot boxes and his opponent doesn’t quite manage to get out the vote.
