And this is AP, which means it’s lower than 37%.

...and seems to think that rallying faux conservative pundits to put a beatdown on his opposition is going to help that.

Wonder what his numbers would be without the MSM propping him up? 7%?

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.

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.

Back off.

(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.

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.

"Summoned"? In our Republican government the co-equal legislative branch leaders are "invited".

I'm certain that's his word -- or that of his worshipers on the Left.

NPR is just paying back the 400+ million. They are speaking to their choir, great.

Meanwhile, where the rubber meets the road, the whitehut is in panic mode right now. How best to dig out knowing the clock now is ticking against them. All Bonehead has to do now is just sit back and wait for Obami to break the log jam. However, don’t expect too much, pray for at least a delay in the Ocare bill. The Tea Party and Cruz just handed the GOP a kick ass win.

The disapproval needs to be higher than 53, but it is start, and vindication enough for his reelection.

The actual AP Headline:

“POLL: GOP GETS THE BLAME FOR SHUTDOWN”

So Obama could be at 2% approval and this would still be the headline. Until this travesty with media is ended, there will never be a change. They are the enemy in every sense of the word.

RE :”Barack Obama’s 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.”

Good to hear.

Down at 37% we are getting closer and closer the progressive die-hards who say they want Obama to hold out and say ‘no’ even if it destroys the economy. They figure Obama-care wins if we dont have jobs.

On the morning Joe Carl Bernstein said this is all MSMs faults for not just blaming Republicans 100% for this.

Hey Sweden,

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.

That decision was made some time ago and began to be implemented once the Senate refused to take up the defunding bill.

They took a shot knowing the main attacks could be directed at very specific failure targets after 1 October.

Obama's position is, No negotiation. You cannot meet someone like that part-way.

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.

Exactly. In those countries, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao ruled ruthlessly because, in the end, they had the military behind them. In our Republic, the MSM is the equivalent to having the military behind a corrupt, ruthless leader.

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.

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.
