Woman & Young People Turn On Obama, As His Approval Rating Sinks To New Low (38%)
The Shark Tank ^ | 11 Dec 13 | Kristin Tate

Posted on 12/11/2013 9:08:51 AM PST by xzins

President Obama’s approval rating has sunk to a new low yet again.

A new Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday shows that Obama’s approval rating is only 38%. That’s down one percent from a poll released last month.

The new low comes as women and young people, who once vehemently supported Obama, turn their backs on the president. Only 44% of women and 41% of young people (aged 18-29) now say they support Obama.

The Quinnipiac poll also revealed that the public has lost trust in Obama. His approval rating on trustworthiness is 44-52 — this is bad news for the president, as it means the majority of the country does not trust him. This likely has a lot to do with the lie he was caught in during the Obamacare debacle (“If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period.”)

The only positive news for Obama from the Quinnipiac poll is that his approval rating has actually increased among Hispanics, 50% of whom say they support him. That figure is up nearly 10% from last month.

Obama’s presidency is finally unraveling and he has no one to blame but himself.

Washington Times opinion writer George F. Will said, “After Obama’s semi-demi-apology for millions of canceled insurance policies — an intended and predictable consequence of his crusade to liberate Americans from their childish choices of “substandard” policies sold by “bad apple” insurers — Obama is like someone who burns down your house. Then shows up with an empty water bucket. Then lectures you about how defective the house was.”

Perhaps Obama’s collapsing presidency will result in big wins for Republicans in 2014. Only time will tell.

With African-American support still about 90%, Obama’s support among other groups must be in the 20’s

Did you see the pic of Mooch watching Barry, Cameron, and the Danish Lady Leader?

I’d say from the pic that Mooch is the woman.

Maybe. Just maybe. Some of them are starting to realize that he wasn’t the one they have been waiting for. That the planet isn’t beginning to heal, and they still don’t have jobs, or health care, or futures without interminable debt. Maybe some of them are getting a clue.

They still believe in the “ideals” that he touts,
but that he’s not the one that will finally implement it right.

Part of the reason is ObamaCare — Compare it with this analogy I received in an email about ObamaFlowers — and then pass it on.

: Obama Flowers - Have you ordered yours yet?

(Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers, My name is Trina. How can I help you?

(Customer) Hello, I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.

(Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of November – or maybe December. But I can help you.

(Customer) Thanks, I ordered a “Spring Bouquet” for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife.

(Receptionist Interrupting) Sir, “Spring Bouquets” do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.

(Customer) But I have always ordered “Spring Bouquets”, done it for years, my wife likes them.

(Receptionist) Roses are better, sir. I am sure your wife will love them.

(Customer) Well, how much are they?

(Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.

(Customer) What’s the difference?

(Receptionist) 6, 12,18 or 24 Red Roses.

(Customer) The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?

(Receptionist) It depends sir, what is you monthly income?

(Customer) What does that have to do with anything?

(Receptionist) I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out of pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our FlowerAid department.

(Customer) FlowerAid?

(Receptionist) Yes, Flowers are a Right, everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you can’t afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.

(Customer) Who said they were a Right?

(Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.

(Customer) Whoa.....I don’t remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding Flowers as a Right.

(Receptionist) It is not really a Right in the Constitution, but ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a “Tax”. Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a Right.

(Customer) I don’t believe this...

(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is you monthly income sir?

(Customer) Forget it, I think I will forgo the flowers this year.

(Receptionist) In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.

(Customer) Why?

(Receptionist) To determine what your ‘non-participation’ cost would be.

(Customer) WHAT? Your can’t charge me for NOT buying flowers!

(Receptionist) It’s the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It’s $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.....

(Customer)interrupting) This is ridiculous, I’ll pay the $9.50..

(Receptionist) Sir, it is the $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

(Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a ripoff!!

(Receptionist) Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.

(Customer) Look, I’m going to call my Congressman to find out what’s going on here. This is ridiculous. I’m not going to pay it.

(Receptionist) Sorry to hear that sir, that’s why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone your are using.

(Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING?

(Receptionist) So they get your GPS coordinates sir

(Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door)

(Receptionist) That would be the IRS sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers, have a nice day...and God Bless America.

How is it possible for Barry and Denmark to be so close and Mooch so far away. Did she put an entire seat between the two of them???

But, but . . . the SeeBS News and NYT poll released yesterday shows his approval up. The other MSM outlets must not have gotten the memo.

I think their seats are next to each other. It’s just that Barry’s skinny rear can slither right up next to Helle (Denmark PM), while Mooch’s takes up the whole seat...she can’t scoot over, one way or the other. Just a guess.

Wait until women sign up for their new health plans and find out that the gyno they’ve been going to for the past ten years is no longer in-network. He’ll be in single digits.

You may be on to something. I don't know WHY Michelle Obama is as widely liked as she is. But in that photo she does appear to be genuinely upset and angry. A lot of married women are going to relate.

Its going to go lower—once the damm breaks and the negative things start to gush out—even blacks will turn on him—or at least black women. His wife was sitting next to him and he’s flirting with a white woman.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Yep, the deluded clowns who voted for him will blame him for “failing to implement”. They are not smart enough to realize that the whole of left wing thinking is utterly, totally stupid beyond the ability of words to convey. They cannot see things that are as obvious to a clear headed person as the rising sun. They project their own stupidity onto anyone who attempts to wake them up. Anyone who tells them the truth is attacked in an incredibly vicious manner.

There are explanations for the behaviors you describe.
Some are assumptional, others have to do with deriving their righteousness from their idealism, ie, liberalism as religion.
