Skip to comments.AP Poll: Obama at 37% Approval
Posted on 10/09/2013 5:59:05 AM PDT by kristinn
Readers have to get halfway into the Associated Press report on its new AP-GFK poll to find this out, but Barack Obamas job approval numbers have cratered in the shutdown. His overall job approval is now 37/53, and a majority want Obama to start cooperating more with Republicans, as 63% want Republicans to meet Obama part-way, too:
Americans are holding Republicans primarily responsible for the partial government shutdown as public esteem sinks for all players in the impasse, President Barack Obama among them, according to a new poll. Its a struggle with no heroes.
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. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.
Indeed, anyone making headlines in the dispute has earned poor marks for his or her trouble, whether its Democrat Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, or Republican John Boehner, the House speaker, both with a favorability rating of 18 percent.
The amusing headline in this instance is GOP gets the blame in shutdown. However, the data shows that plenty of blame is being heaped on all sides, by all sides:

And this is AP, which means it’s lower than 37%.
Should equal his nickname. Not low enough.
Perhaps people really are waking up...
Wonder what his numbers would be without the MSM propping him up? 7%?
How LOOOOOOW can he GO? Keep lowering that red line 0!
But something is happening here
And you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones ?
I am sure closing the WWII memorial to families while allow illegals in to the mall will help his numbers/s
I heard he summoned all 4 leaders from House and Senate to Whitehous tonight... I think Obama is going to crack.
He shouldn’t even have that......but you know it’s racist to beat up the black guy, so lets pretend he’s a great president.
With media support at 95 percent, the reading of approval is equivalent to 73 percent. He should not care about “approval”, as he is there until January 20, 2017! And that’s a long time yet. The American peopel will be overall impressed yet with their own foolish choices.
Lame duck on his last quack...
What’s happened is that the media seems to believe America voted for Obama the radical.
America voted for a black president, because America wanted to make a statement. Period.
America re-elected a black president, because it didn’t want anyone to have any question in their mind, about that statement.
(both of those elections, were likewise run against remarkably lame GOP candidates)
The thing is, America inadvertently elected along with that black president, the most radical president ever.
That is the part, which is catching up to Obama.
Obama needs to realize he’s pushing those who supported, and who tolerated him, to the edge.
Back off Obama.
(Ps: no I did not vote for Obama)
He is in freefall, great. They now know their side is losing and stands to get destroyed in the mid terms. No wonder Bami was speaking as if he hair was on fire yesterday, he knows his ceding the lead here to Weed, er Reid, was a bad play now.
37%, wow, that is a few points above the almost impossible to achieve 35% as he gets 13% black vote and 20% committed dem/commie vote off the bat. The poll shows he has lost the entire indy vote. His handlers know they have to do something, maybe the trojan horse maneuver, they put out Ozero and out of his mouth comes Clinton? I sense an agreement shortly.
The Brown Clown’s approval rating isn’t low enough yet IMHO.
Over here in Europe, we are finally beginning to realize what a great president Reagan was.
Eventually, the average European will one day understand what a clown Obama is.
