Skip to comments.NPR Poll: GOP Gets The Blame In Shutdown
Posted on 10/09/2013 5:56:42 AM PDT by HawkHogan
Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it.

Hilarious though.. if you read the NPR story Drudge has linked.. it’s all about how those wrascally Wrepublicans are to blame...
A sure sign that even Obama’s supporters are starting to wake up and smell the coffee.
finally, now we’re getting somewhere, 37% is a good start. I thought it never get below 40%
I love Matt Drudge. He has more influence than all these biased media junkies combined, and he constantly makes them look foolish in their own stories by simply crafting his own headlines.
Let’s see the Leftist media trumpet the slide of Obama’s approval rating. They led every newscast and headlined their newspapers every time Pres. Bush polled below 40%.
Always been sub-zero at my house. Impossible to rise above that level. Ever. When he packs his bags and exits it may rise to a 1.
Even now that “blame the Republicans” looks like it is starting to fade.............:)
And when approval ratings for Presidents get into 30’s they tend to stay there.
Busheque numbers, couldn’t happen to a better Marxist.
even 37% is too high
Imagine if the MSM was not on the leftists side, he’d be in the teens
I wonder how low he can go?
I figure at least 20 percent of his base are getting the bennies.
So about 15 to 20 percent will NEVER disagree with him.
Then you’ve got about 10 percent wacko crowd who actually believe what this freak says.
That puts the number at about 30 percent of his core base who will never leave him.
NOW.. if the press is saying he’s at 37 percent.. I would actually put it closer to 30.
I think he’s as low as he can go...
I imagine reality has smacked some of these smacked A55E5 who now have to go buy expensive health insurance while they struggle to pay the cable company.
More than 4 in 5 respondents felt no personal impact from the shutdown
That means the VAST majority of these people that supposedly "blame" Republicans for the shutdown, actually don't even care, certainly not enough for it to influence their vote. Sort of like the polls that say 70% support gun control, but the only ones that care strongly enough to vote for a candidate based on the issue are those that oppose it...
This is very significant.
The American public is stupid. They don’t know what exactly is going on, but they don’t like the negativity, and they are finally beginning to tie it to Obama.
It’s got to hit the 20’s before the MSM will pay attention to it. Then the meme will be what a statesman he’s being, a ‘profile in courage’, by doing what’s right in office, rather than what’s popular.
Likewise, gas would have to hit $10 a gallon during his administration for it to be newsworthy—and then it would be a glorious harbinger of our embarking on the post-petroleum age.
The number 36% is critical. That is in my view the line delineating the hardcore.
If it drops to < 36% there is real trouble.
I don’t believe his approval ratings have been anywhere near what has been reported EXCEPT for people that live in cities.
Small town America, he’s nowhere close to the numbers we’re getting.
I also believe 37% is a new low record.
Anyone have the facts?
That performance by Obama and the MSM yesterday was a disgrace to this country. All of those dems are traitorous scum. Americans need to take a look at who they are allowing to run this country.
More than 4 in 10 Republicans identify with the tea party?
That’s got to be the highest since 2010, at least. Thank you, Sen. Cruz, Lee and Paul.
Meanwhile, I think we’ve got to the nub of the GOPe anger.
I know right!!!
I was thinking the same thing!
Political and Racial loyalty goes out the window when you start telling leeches that there is a cost to "free stuff" and they will be required to pay up. Probably the first time in Millions of Freeloading American's Lives they are required to pay for something. HEll yes they are going to get mad. I wish the Exchanges were fully functioning. So Everyone that got online to sign up could see what it is going to cost them. Iam beginning to think that is exactly why they aren't working. They are deliberatly attempting to keep sign ups to a minimum, knowing the bad PR real people with real numbers causes. Once we get past the Debt Limit and CRs they will magically all work.
Rush had a good take on this. A lot of Obama supporters were under the mistaken delusion that under Obamacare healthcare was going to be "free" like in Canada or England. However, they found out when they tried to sign up last week, that they actually had to PAY for the insurance, in some cases to the tune of $500+ a month and then STILL be responsible for high deductibles and co-payments. Now they feel like Obama screwed them because they are either going to be forced to pay for what they thought was free or they have to pay the fine/tax. Either way they are losing money...
Scary that he was able to make people think it would actually be free.
What IDIOT thought.. oh I’m gonna get FREE Health Insurance.
NOTHING in this life is free. NOTHING.
The Dictator in Chief will take his Gestapo goons (Dingy, Eyeballs, Babs, DiFi, et al.) in Congress down with him. Backlash is here. It has become the Occupant of our WH and his ilk against the American people. The slime has risen to the top for one and all to see and smell.
anybody know the lowest number for a president?
People are finding out free healthcare aint free and that they’ve been lied to, big time!
Yes, I like your post, and you are probably spot on. IIRC, Bush slid to what 28% or 22%?
If he is closer to the 30% you mention, he is now reaching that dreaded Bush valley of approval that helped him loose the House and Senate in 2006...
I smell history not repeating, but potentially rhyming, 2014 could be a good year...
That’s why I don’t understand why these other Dim politicians are allowing Obama to play games with the barricades, death benefits, national parks, etc. They will be the ones feeling the wrath of the voters.
“What IDIOT thought.. oh Im gonna get FREE Health Insurance”
The same ones whom said in 2008 that Obunga was going to pay their Mortgages...err......wait....
Looking at the charts
Truman at 22
Nixon at 23
Carter at 28
GW Bush at 19? LOL???
Obama at 37
Not only is he losing Independents.. but he is also suppressing his base.
Now you have to add in voter fraud..
“Then youve got about 10 percent wacko crowd who actually believe what this freak says.”
I hate to say it but I’ve got two daughters that could be included in that figure—grand daughter also.
The sons have more sense.
I spoke to my CPA wonks better half to confirm something I heard from a Tax Pro Calling in Glenn Beck Yesterday...
The $95 penalty? It is a Canard...
Their is a formula, something like 1% of you AGI then X the number of exemptions in your household.
It takes not a lot to get the penalty to thousands of dollars.
People are going to be pissed @ tax time this year, IMHO it may get ugly...
The American public is stupid. They dont know what exactly is going on, but they dont like the negativity, and they are finally beginning to tie it to Obama.
The wrath against these Gestapo-style vermin has already begun. I have a RAT neighbor who can’t stand his Royal highness occupying our WH any more than we do. RATs are leaving the Liberal ship. The Royal Elitists in DC are screwing with our military, their grieving families, our veterans, the elderly, etc. and their arrogance makes them think there will be no backlash and no payback? Why, because they think we’re powerless against them, LOL, more proof that Liberalism is a mental disease.
If that is the “published” approval rating, you can bet the farm the real numbers (the internals) are lower than that. Very much explains the petty and petulant behavior the boy king is displaying.
I honestly don’t think he cares. He is the Dictator in Chief...he’s got 3 more years to ruin this country and create his socialist utopia.
They are. The ones I know, cousins, stylists, people i don’t share politics with, are stuttering in place of what used to be proud assertions. They’re even asking questions
Yes but the young folks are about to get sticker shock with Obamacare. Young health people (millions of them) who don’t spend their money on health insurance are going to have to start forking over large chunks every month even if they do qualify for subsidy in the form of tax credits they won’t see that till they file the following year. Young people most likely are not that patient and are going to balk at this. Obamacare is doomed to failure because the young people just won’t sign up for it of course Republicans will eventually be blamed because somehow it will be their fault even though everyone of them voted against and tried to repeal this evil law. Example I checked out a one of the healthcare calculators and basically a 21 year old single person making less than 25K a year is going to have to fork over about $200 every month for the bronze plan which has large copays and really only serves as a catastrophic plan... but that $200 was what they were using for gas, partying, car insurance, care payment, etc, etc, and it is not being replaced with anything tangible so they are about to get pissed because they won’t get the $1800 payback until they file their taxes the following year.... LOL suckers...
He’s dropped into the political danger zone. Any politician whose ratings are in the 30’s is probably in trouble.
NPR is working to raise funds.
The republicans are loudly against obamacare
Whether they were dragged into that position kicking and screaming or not
Obamacares costs are starting to kick in
All the criticism of Ted Cruz I hear comes from moderate republicans who look in vain for and pretend there is some good in the self appointed king
Eventually they’ll be proven faulty in their thinking
Ted Cruz jumped in on the side of taking care of the people
It looks bad politically at first. But like any healthy cure, it takes time and persistence.
French President Francois Hollande's approval rating has hit its lowest mark since the Socialist took office last year, new polls show.
Already at record lows for a modern French leader, Hollande's approval rating has dipped further in recent weeks as he struggles with France's stagnant economy and a reputation for dithering.
In an LH2 poll for Le Nouvel Observateur released Tuesday, only 29 per cent of respondents had a positive view of Hollande, down one point from September and three points from July.
'This decrease brings Francois Hollande below the symbolic level of 30 per cent positive opinions and is his worst score since entering the Elysee,' LH2 said.
Hollande's predecessor, right-winger Nicolas Sarkozy, never fell below the 30-per cent level during his five-year term, it noted.
The firm blamed the latest fall on public squabbling among ministers over the treatment of France's Roma population - a row that has seen Hollande depicted as unable to control his government.
Another IFOP poll for Paris Match released Tuesday put Hollande's approval rating at 30 per cent.
The shine is off Obama’s star. He totally mishandled the shut down. He’s petulant.
The key to all this is that Congress is like a fish ball in the ocean. You might not like it, but you can’t target it because it’s a mass and a moving mass.
You can focus on one person, the President. Obama’s brains blew this big time.
Unless Obama stops the freebies, his actual rating will never go below 47%.
