Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (-19 Lowest in 9 months)
Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 16, 2013

Posted on 06/16/2013 7:16:35 AM PDT by BulletBobCo

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) now disapprove.

Today’s figures include 22% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19 (see trends).

That’s the lowest Approval Index rating for the president in nine months.

I don’t believe these polls anymore. I thought that Americans had more sense before the election, but now I know better.

After the debacle in November, I’ve become convinced many of Obama’s detractors are pissed at him for not going far enough.

So what do we do with the 22% that strongly approve of Zero?

Yup. We are no longer the majority in America. We, conservatives, are still probably the largest group. However, the coalition arrayed against us will just about forgive Obama for anything.

“He would still win in a landslide.”

I have no doubt. The electorate is currently D+6.. Very likely it’ll be D+8 in 2016.

Here they go again - push brainwashing us while the Democrats are figuring out how to lie, cheat and steal enough votes in enough Congressional Districts to win the House. I don’t even read those polls anymore.

And really, what difference does it make? I’m not even being sarcastic. President Obama isn’t running for reelection again. Short of impeachment, he’s the president.

What does amaze me is the 47% who continue to support the man. I shouldn’t be amazed, especially when vast numbers of Americans never hear a negative word about Obama. The media, for example, is doing everything possible to protect Dear Leader.

As Geraldo Rivera said a few days ago, the New York Times is upset with Obama because he isn't a true liberal.

Americans have become dependent and they are voting for the person who given them more freebies. Romney makes headlines for his “binders” comment or for a dopey story about a dog yet Obama and Benghazi are page 43 material according to these dolts.

Obama could walk outside the front gate of The White House, knife a tourist in broad daylight, and his base of 23% (and the MSM) would simply say Obama doesn’t know anything about it...

Intensity is always interesting:

79% of those who disapprove of Obama strongly disapprove.
54% of those who approve of Obama strongly approve.

I hope we'll be able to exploit that difference in 2014, although it failed us in 2012.

See.....Romney was right.

How 47% can approve at this point is shocking

It’s shocking until you look at the population. Nearly 100% of blacks and Hispanics approve no matter what, that gets him close to halfway there. Throw in your brain-dead white liberals, and it gets closer still. Kick in a good number of moderates who are consumed with white guilt, and it’s 47%. I don’t think he can ever go very far below that. Depressing.

Most of the 22% (those outside the fevered Communist precincts of power) are takers. Cut them off from the government tit and make them fend for themselves The others need to be driven from positions of power as traitors and where it can be proved, they should be arrested, tried and put to death for treason.

That’s actually a widely held misconception.

The fact is that the reason the left is so desparate to add 15 million new Democrat voters is because THEY see the writing on the wall. Secular liberals aren’t reproducing. Christian conservatives are. Red State populations are growing and Blue States are declining. They need immigration or they’re toast.

Read this...it’s pretty compelling:

My view is that every year 2.5 million (mostly old, white, R) voters die and are replaced by (young, minority, D) voters.

Most everyone under 30 has been educated in progressive controlled schools by progressive educated teachers and gets most of their information via progressive controlled internet portals.

I can’t believe all the “sour grapes”!!! We.....I mean Mitt Romney and his RINO pundits, consultants, and PR agents handed the election to Obama. Romney, like that idiot loser John McCain played softball with him, when what Obama needed was his political heart ripped out, like Al Gore used to say. Obama, in fact, did rip out Mitt’s heart, and very early in the campaign, too!!! When Romney let that witch from CNN Candy Crowley do him in, I knew that was the end right there!! Mitt listened to the morons he surrounded himself with.

I, for one, am pleased that Obama is losing his grip. I will really get excited when his disapproval is -25 or -30!!! Romney should have spanked Obama big time.....but Romney just turned out to be naught, but a true weakling & wuss!!! Sad...but 100% true, IMHO!!! We can beat these folks, just gotta stop crying, get the Republicans some backbone, get rid of all the RINOS, and put firebrands, willing to fight for victory, conservatives in charge of the GOP!!!

We are way too weak, in Republican leadership across the board. You can knock Chris Christie all you want and desire.....but...only he has zapped NJ Democrats where it hurts. He is hated by NJ teacher unions, because he broke them. He has backed the Democrats into a corner, forcing them to run through a primary in August and a special election in October, spending all their political capital and money on the Senate race. He then runs alone in November, probably pulls in enough Republicans to gain control of the NJ legislature, rules NJ in the best interest of its citizens...and builds a war machine and gold chest to capture the GOP nomination in 2016!!! You folks may not like it....but Christie has indeed used his noggin...in thinking out-of-the-box!!!! No bitching, just leadership & action!!! That’s what this country needs right now, not Freepers crying like immature babies, We got us one totally immature leader in the White House, Barack Hussein “Muslim Bortherhood” Obama. We need not one more!!! Just one man’s opinion!!!

I’m so sick of posts that knock my defeatist attitude! Did you learn nothing from the last two elections? I stand by what I said. He would win in a landslide... If the competition continues to be the likes of McCain, Romney, and the rest. A constitutionalist could win, but good luck with the primary system. And what’s wrong with cartoons? Currently watching Iron Man. It’s like a cartoon. Chill.
