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:

Hence the panic press conference.
If an AP poll puts that bastard’s approval rating at 37% , you KNOW it has to be even lower.
His approval rating is based on those congenital racists who would support his bastard regardless.

Good to see we have other nations watching our debacle. Clearly the majority do not approve of his leadership or of being the world police.
He is everything America abhors. Hopefully he does not drag us into another war.
Obama has been steadily consolidating his power behind the corrupt MSM which has clearly sided with him. How else could any person - in the history of this country - use the IRS as his political Stazi? How else could such a corrupt person get away with basically doing whatever he wants regardless of the Constitution.
Obama is steadily consolidating his power and the power of Democrats with the ongoing assistance of the corrupt MSM.
At some point, like Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, etc., there will be a crisis.
“So glad people are catching on in Europe! I guess the media and the educational establishment there also make it difficult for any conservative view point to be widely expressed”
- Correct, but many Europeans are far too intelligent to be lead astray by the PC institutions surrounding us.
Patriotism and Conservative values are far from being dead in my corner of the World.
One thing an American visitor to Europe quickly would become aware of, whether he/she visited Scandinavia, Britain, France, Germany, Italy etc., is that there are plenty of people over here that strongly disagree with ideas like Multiculturalism and Socialism.
Best of regards.
yep, Obama could get caught on tape smoking crack and they would STILL vote for him! In fact, they would just claim he was “set up” lol

> IMO hes already cracked mentally it just matter of time before his handlers are no longer able to keep it private. (Closing the WH and keeping him reading the tele are all symptoms that indicate their attempt to control the issue)
The horns are getting harder for him to suppress every day. Soon they will pop out and his agenda and intentions (from the beginning of this charade) will be evident.
I would have loved to see this result in Gallup or Raz as I think it is not possible for it to go lower than 40 in those two polls. But, I’ll take this one, I just hope it isn’t an outlier.
I guess Ohaha must be heeding all the great domestic
advice from his most trusted foreign policy advisors.
37% eh? BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

I hope they all get to see their Fuhrer impeached and imprisoned in Leavenworth - sharing a cell with Holder and Bubba.
The few things a Narcissist cares about, is being liked, loved, adored, respected and viewed as being right. It's got to be killing him to see his numbers. Can you imagine some of the tweets this guy gets?
IMO, polling does not matter to zero. During his first campaign he said he was out to change America.
That’s a hell of a drop for a president just reelected. You know he must be pissed! His power and influence is waning and he’s never experieced that before. It has always been on the rise.
That’s nice, but will those people keep voting democrat?
Rasmussen (without Scott Rasmussen) has it at 50/49 approve/disapprove, for what it’s worth.
