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.
