No Love for Obama as Approval Ratings Hit Record Low in New Poll
TIME ^ | December 10, 2013 | By Eliana Dockterman

Posted on 12/10/2013 4:07:51 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll by Quinnipiac University. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters said that the president is not honest and trustworthy.

... Just 50 percent of Hispanics said they approved of the job he was doing. On the upside, however, 76 percent of Democrats and 85 percent of black voters polled said they approved of Obama.

When he hits -9.1% like his non-paying income tax constituents then I’ll be happy.

If he’s lost a quarter of the democrats and 15% of the blacks, that’s not an “upside.” That’s a slide and it’ll only get worse as people come to the realization that his promises were lies.

The Democrats DESERVE a little stress for the misery they have put the rest of us through for the past five years.

Only 76% of Democrats still have a positive view of the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut (or “Spite Hut”)? Howcum so many are straying from the reservation - wasn’t that all sewed up long ago?

Of course, there are also a growing number of formerly Democrat voters who identify themselves as “independents”, and that demographic is deserting the Democrat hard-line like rats escaping a sinking ship.

The comparison to the “last days of Nixon” become more applicable every passing day. The Won has become truly toxic for Progressives everywhere. “Timid”, “incompetent”, “overly self-obsessed”, the list goes on and on, and when people begin to question the very foundations of their previously blind faith, the disillusionment they unleash will be a force of nature.

Tsunamis and hurricanes will pale in comparison.

38% approval is the floor. Due to baked in demographics and media buttressing, for an “articulate” Black Marxist it simply cannot go lower than this number. If Obama were the run-of-the-mill, moronic, Caucasian Democrat the floor goes down to about 33%.

So Obama’s rating continue to fall, despite numerous self-serving press conferences, the triumphant roll-out of the new, improved ObamaCare website, and the continued devotion of the MSM, including Chris Matthews’s gushing hour-long interview.

What’s next? They’ve spent all their ammunition and nothing’s working.

Since blacks are still supporting him at the almost 90% level and they make up roughly 14% or so of the country, then that means Obama's approval among the rest of the groups has to be in the 20's.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but they expected this. They knew it would happen over 0bamacare. That’s why they pushed hillary to a safe place just before the 0bamacare rollout. She will be seen as having nothing to do with 0bamacare so the public will obey the command ‘first woman president’ and march in lockstep to the polls to elect the third marxist president.

0bama’s low poll numbers mean nothing. He is not up for election. hillary is. Is the public so stupid that it will fall for the same media bull$h!t and believe she is the most wonderful person in the world? Or will it see that she is a mean angry 8!tch marxist?

I agree the MSM will have a “grannygasm” when William Jefferson Webster “lil Bubba” Clinton-Mezvinsky pops out.

But Hillary will still be a very old and tired looking presence on the campaign trail. I think she will be far less formidable than Baraq.

Maybe not 30, but a easy 15-20 every poll, maybe slightly more now that he is sinking.

I can't imagine how that incident plays among black women. Most black women to not like their guys being attracted to white women, especially when the guys make asses of themselves about it. (that's been my experience)

She's his handler. Just like royal children needed minders whenever they went in public, to keep them from picking their noses or doing something unseemly, so VJ has to keep an eye on the self-indulgent child occupying the office of the President. She really blew it with selfie-gate, and I think this photo shows her over-compensating for the error.

I'm starting to wonder if whether the Powers That Be built in 'planned obsolesence' in their selection of Obama as president.

Perhaps past a certain point in their agenda it doesn't matter what his stats are, it matters not if he self destructs: their agend is acomplished.

How did Reggie fit into this entourage? Every road trip is a Reggie-Barry play date, making Valerie's job all the harder.

BTW, Barry was really yucking it up at this supposedly serious occasion. LOL isn't really an option at funerals, is it?

0bama’s low poll numbers mean nothing. He is not up for election. hillary is.

I wish you could make that point with Talk Radio Hosts. It ain't how bad he is now, it's about how bad it can get if we do not develop a PROGRAM that can save the Republic and the Constitution, a PLAN to implement it, and come up with a LEADER who can sell it hard enough to get his butt elected and carry it all out.

Only Right Wing Yakker talking about it is Levin (of whom I am not ordinarily enamored).
