Obama's job approval numbers are getting worse, not better during this 'shut down'. This is good news and should strengthen the resolve of those opposing the Kenyan.

How in the world does he get such high numbers?!?!?!

If people were paying attention his approval rating should be somewhere between 7% and negative 15%

No matter how bad he gets, that ‘Approve’ number never seems to go below that 40% level. ‘Low-information voters’, indeed.

He’s always 41%. This ass clown is destroying the country and his supporters are still wanking off to his posters. Damn them all.

They actually WANT this country to crash and burn because they have absolute contempt for what it has represented for over 200 years. So, of course they approve of his sabotage.

It's irrelevant to the One. He will not be running for reelection, he's simply out to destroy as much of America, as we know it, as possible.

“How in the world does he get such high numbers?!?!?!”

Because obamacare has not sunk in with low info voters. Case and point, I’m having dinner with lib friends last night. They are retired so right now they are not impacted by obamacare. I started telling them about the premiums and deductibles and they did not believe me. When this reality finally hits the log info voters... the democratic party is toast.

Well, it’s a combination of factors. He’ll always have about 40% support purely from his pathetic base.

But most polls I’ve seen have people putting more blame for this mess on Congress and not Obama. That blame is tilted slightly more towards the GOP but it’s pretty even. Congress’ approval rating is like 10%.

For some reason, the people they poll (who likely don’t follow the news) disassociate his ability to lead with this Congressional showdown.

I was just thinking, if this country wasn’t so dumbed-down, he wouldn’t even be there. Every sign of what he’s doing now was there right from the start. The pettiness, the vindictiveness, the tyranny. If this country wasn’t so dumbed-down, they’d care about their own freedom. But they think “freedom” is the right to shag anything, anywhere, anytime. No matter if Big Brother watches you do it.

He gets high numbers because that percentage of the country has chosen security over freedom.

This was once the land of the free because of the brave. People are no longer brave enough to fight tyranny. They want their government benefits more.

It’s the 52% disapproving that’s huge. That’s after the Ted Cruz speech, so I’d say the young constitutional conservatives are doing what the RINOs didn’t even try to do. That would be taking it to Obama, and not pandering to him because he says he’s black.

MSM and online liberals’ BS, bluff and bluster ain’t working ...in addition to the Obamacare websites.

They own the shutdown

They own the debt increases

They own the crappy economy requiring the debt increases

They own Obamacare

In all of these their constituents are hardest hit.

If their constituents aren’t listening they’re not being deluded. IMO, a good opportunity.

the democratic party is toast...

Probably won't matter when there is only one party.

The 'Rat party is $18 million in the red, and has not paid its bills since the last election. Makes me wonder if they know something is up with the dollar down the line, so might as well run up the credit card while they can, as they figure they'll never have to pay it.

I don't like Barack Obama.

People have to wrap their minds around the idea that Obama is not a very likable guy. A huge number of people are still saying to themselves "He's a good guy, and I like him, but..."

As soon as people give up on that conceit, that 41% number will fall another ten points.

The MAJORITY needs to scream.

There are MORE of us. Lots of his support are morons that would never support him if they understood what he is doing.

People need to understand tathe represents a MINORITY of the population.

I may be irrelevant to Obama but it’s not irrelevant for the dem party. They want to remain in power after he’s gone.

I predict that if his approval rating continues to decline, you will start to see growing opposition from within the democrat party.

It already is, that is why it never drops below 40%. It's the media's iron lung breathing air into their construct.

This is easy.

- Twenty-eight percent of American voters are non-white.
- College students overwhelmingly support Obama.
- Thoroughly Progressive/Liberals who support Obama.

I suspect the above are hard-core Obama supporters making up that 40%.

He gets 12% from his black tribe no matter what. He gets another 1% from his moslem co-religionists. True believers add another 15% at least. Add another 15% for low (actually no) information voters. He can't go below 40%.

Good luck and may God save the USA.

if they(approval numbers) get in the 30’s, they usually end up staying there... Once they get in 30’s, obama may blink.

It would be nice to have a graph that compares Obama’s numbers with Bush’s numbers starting on day 0 of their presidency. I highly suspect that the zero’s numbers will average lower than President Bush’s.

Isn't Gallup on either a 3 day or 7 day rolling average?!? Considering that the last few days Obama has been sitting in the -3/-4 range in Gallup, to jump to -11 in one day he must have had a day of polling that was in the -20 range. I wonder if panic is sitting in at the Whitehouse or if they are calling gallup and threating another lawsuit...

You’ve nailed exactly WHY the GOP needs to keep the pressure up and continue to force Barry into an escalating series of whining, petulant, on-camera crackups. This will eventually shatter the myth of the suave, likeable Mr. Cool.

Bingo! Looked to see if someone else posted before I said it. The numbers of the first two groups simply will not change unless he is caught humping a goat. Wait...the mussies would give him points for that. The second two groups might change one or two points IF it hits their wallets hard. But both of those groups are stupid, just in different ways.

All the more reason the Repubs should stand pat. Obama got an initial bump from this, but his attitude and actions are drawing blood from his own body.. and what happens to Obama will happen to democrats across the board. Patience is the key.. Boehner and co. are finally squaring their messaging... that movement on this will occur when Obama and Reid sit their asses down at that table and negotiate like adults... with obamacare on the table.

This, along with the repetitive reports of difficulties with Obamacare, are will continue to damage Obama, the longer it goes. People are starting to connect Obamacare with the shutdown.

Patience. Virtuous patience.
