NBC/WSJ poll: Obama Approval Sinks to New Low (Personal approval under water at 41%)
NBC News ^ | Wednesday, October 30, 2013 | Mark Murray

Posted on 10/30/2013 3:47:21 PM PDT by kristinn

President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office -- tied for his all-time high.

The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer -- allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.

Those events have combined to erase some of the advantage the president gained with polls showing most Americans blame congressional Republicans for the shutdown.

And for the first time in the survey, even Obama’s personal ratings are upside-down, with 41 percent viewing him a favorable light and 45 percent viewing him negatively.

People don’t like spending hours watching 404 error messages, having their insurance cancelled, and finding that their disposable income was just disposed of on insurance price increases.

Careful folks. This is coming from Enemedia.

A likely scenario is the Marxist Progressive Communist Leftists (MPCL) of the Enemedia recognize that Ø has now a limited shelf life, and expires in 3 years. They are mindful of engineering an electorate mindset that, for an office that will be basically an “empty seat”, can be fixed with the next MPCL ‘Rat that runs for POTUS.

Boy... they must have cooked the goose and then thrown her into a cauldron of hot grease and burned her into a charcoal briquette. They had to manipulate numbers in a huge way to show him above 40 points. These people lie almost as badly as obama and anyone associated with him.

I'd wager it would be more like 30% if the RINOs weren't disgusting back-stabbing saboteurs only interested in profit for their globalist paymasters.

13% of the population is black.
15% of the population is liberal moonbats
13% of the population is ridden with white guilt.

20% are commies
15% are blacks

= 35% floor that it’s nearly impossible for a black democrat to go below.

Basically he has lost nearly everyone he can lose.

You keep citing that election but I notice you never mention fraud. Did you manage to get through the entire electoral cycle w/o reading a single report on massive, widespread fraud?

You are dead on. The Liberal Party cheats at levels unimaginable even a decade ago, and the Liberal Lite party says nothing. Dems are outright stealing elections & not even bothering to hide it any more. The GOP is silent. Maybe Cruz will speak up about it. He’s really our only hope.

{^) Yeah, but ... she's a kid. She's a dumb sheep kid who adopts a pre-determined template with the rest of the cool kids. She's young and inexperienced. She may well look back on that pic in 30 years the same way a lot now-conservative baby boomers look back at themselves marching with all the hipsters in the anti-war movement: with a wince of pain for being such a dope!

She's a kid. The ones with no excuses are the older folks who should have figured it out by now, those are the real idiots.

That 41% approval would be coming for the parasites that never worked a day in their lives and under the expanded eligibility now get free medicaid insurance.

Now you get free health care benefits for being a crack whore, corner drug dealer, life time “professional Student” , illegal invader and any other dredge of society.

Oh, I am very familiar with the fraud. The left has always used fraud, but that does not explain the idiotic support that Obama has. Even today, while it is down, Obumbo has way too much approval, in spite of his America destroying actions. Why is that?

Few things are more irrelevant than Obama’s “approval rating”. So long as he has the support of the “powers that be” he will continue to do as he pleases. The American people can’t figure out what is happening.
