Skip to comments.Pew: Liberal support for Obama at all-time low, worse than George W. Bush and conservatives
Posted on 12/18/2013 4:07:26 AM PST by Biggirl
Following on the heels of other political groups, President Obama's liberal base is abandoning him, giving him an even lower level of support from his base than George W. Bush had from conservatives five years into his presidency, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

If he thinks it’s bad now wait until Jan 1st. when all of those who had insurance find they have none.
In other words, a clue to what direction the 2014 midterm elections are going to head to.
I hope so.
We should be chasing Democrats down the streets with tar and feathers.
Problem is half those who got screwed haven’t even realized it yet.
Obama’s insurance purge is going to cost thousands of lives. Stalin would be envious.
He should get on Air Force One and go make a speech somewhere! Get in front of a crowd of "organized union dupes" wearing laudatory T-shirts and tell us to believe he is the most wonderful President ever.
As long as Obamacare is law, he wins. Everything else is noise.
....Or so he claims.
In 2014, the Senate WILL get a conservative GOP majority. The House will get even more conservative.
Exactly. I honestly don’t think he gives a crap at all about these polls.
Yep. For five years people have been posting the latest shocking poll numbers in Breaking News and talking about how Obama has lost the support of this group or that one. The 2012 election should have taught everyone that it doesn't matter.
With the “results” coming back to him in LOSING the Senate and still KEEPING CONTROL of the House.
.....Not until right after January 1st.
I'm afraid I'm not that optimistic. A conservative GOP majority would mean that the Republicans will have at least 51 seats and that over half of those will be conservatives. Can you name the 26 conservative GOP senators or senate candidates who would make up that majority? Please keep in mind that many of the GOP senators won't vote with the party anyway so you might not even have 51 votes most of the time.
And then Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan will bail out ObamaCare just in time for Hillary’s 2016 coronation...
He doesn’t even care about the House or the Senate. He is a egomaniacal sociopath. If Obamacare stands, we become a socialist country. Once that happens, America is dead. Our Republic will be lost.
Who is going to stop him? Boehner? Rove? Bush? Christie? Ryan? Santa Claus?
I just do not see Washington as the solution. They are corrupted faster than we can vote them out: Ryan, Rubio and Toomey as recent examples. Article V. is the only way we even have a chance.
Liberals should be jumping up and down with joy as the clown POTUS continues his fundamental transformation of the American Republic into a weak Leftist managerie of christians hating homos and racially-charged class division politics.
Obamacare is the key. As Lenin said, “Medicine is the keystone of the arc of socialism.”
Obama will now proceed to issue regulations, EOs, and appoint radical judges without the approval of the American people. The damage he will do in the next 2 plus years will be incalculable. Who’s to stop him? John Boehner?
Wow.. Will Blitzer rpaeat this breathlessly 31 times over a three hour period on CNN, like he did when Bush hit 38%?
At the 2008 presidential debate in Nashville, Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted into the monumental fraud known as the “Affordable Care Act.” No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.

(Sen. Shaheen, Health Care Questions From Across New Hampshire, Accessed 11/13/13)

In the meeting, requested by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), McDonough and Bennet discussed what the White House could do to help vulnerable Senate Democrats and talked a/bout developing a stronger relationship with the White House.
Democratic senators fear the White House is not sympathetic enough to their plight. After the government shutdown, they were confident they would retain the Senate, but optimism vanished as problems with the healthcare law mounted.
POSTER HUMS "HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN" I know these guys are nervous as hell. I mean, all of their jobs are on the line because this is the thing making the biggest waves lately. Its a nightmare.
The only good thing we got from GWB to my knowledge is Justice Alito. There was a small tax break early in the administration? Did I forget something. Now nephew George P. is calling himself “very conservative”. And I bet Texas primary voters buy it too!
Many who will die will never know their cause of
If that happens, safe to say, revolt to happen.
People in KY and WI will never undertand the true McC and Ryan; we cannot convince them.
Very true, and they won't have a clue as to who's at fault, so the "media" will happily fill that informational void with "it's-the-GOP's-fault" messaging.
Obama was chosen by Soros and the LEFTIST movement as the perfect candidate: a narcissistic sociopath filled with rage, resentment, and visceral hatred for the West.
Dinesh D’Souza said it best [Forbes, Sept. 2010]:
“...[O]ur President is trapped in his father’s time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost.”
Safe to say, I could end up being RIGHT in all this in my predictions.
My goodness, why all this PESSEMISSIEM for?
It is happening now as we speak. And the Republican Party response? They cut a bad budget deal and attack the base. Why? To save their phony baloney jobs. The Republican establishment is facilitating this slide into oblivion—they just want to get their piece of the action before the collapse.
There is only one party in Washington: the Re-Election Party, dedicated to the personal enrichment of its members at taxpayer expense.
One more to add:
SEN. MARK WARNER (D-VA): Let me make clear, Im not going to support a health care reform plan thats going to take away health care that youve got right now or a health plan that you like. (2009)
Yes I expect a lot of people will be shocked when they get to the Doctors office or when they check out of the hospital on Jan 3rd.
.....Or rather before the conservative take-over. No collaspe, conservative take-over
Yep and that will fuel a LOT of anger BIGTIME.
You. And me. Or no one.
All is going according to plan:
1. Destroy the Bourgeoisie Middle Class and fundamentally transform them to neo-Proletariat by wrecking the economy.
2. Increase unemployment and promote addiction dependence on their wealth-destroying entitlements. Democrats can then move their neo-Proletariat and Amnestied Illegals onto their entitlement plantation in exchange for votes.
3. At the same time create unsustainable debt until the economy collapses via Cloward-Piven strategy. Declare the Constitution null-and-void, and then be ready to pick up the pieces and fundamentally transform the former USA into their new Communist Utopian society.
4. The DHS and NSA are readying for the day Martial Law is imposed on us. The military has also been fundamentally transformed to enforce Police State control when the SHTF day arrives, which sadly is approaching quickly.
If that happens, look for a REVOLT to start.
Ditch that one——all the quotes posted were parroting Obama.
Last thing we need is anti-O/Care Dem quotes cluttering up Dems’ bleak 2014 landscape.
It’s focus, not pessimism.
> liberal base is abandoning him, giving him an even lower level of support from his base than George W. Bush had from conservatives five years into his presidency...
They don’t believe he’s gone far enough with his IRS, NSA, and DHS harassment of “tea-baggers” and “right-wingers”, and that is the ONLY problem they have with the Kenyan. Thanks Biggirl.
I view it rather that when winter ends, spring begins, my focus.
“......4. The DHS and NSA are readying for the day Martial Law is imposed on us. The military has also been fundamentally transformed to enforce Police State control when the SHTF day arrives, which sadly is approaching quickly.”..
There are those “minions” who will follow the direction of their gubmint leaders but I firmly believe there are MANY who will NOT and very possibly may turn to support the side of “We, The People”. Why do you think they want to get total control of all guns and ammuntion? Certainly it is not to avoid some accident on the 4th of july.
POLLS, he’s STILL @ 1600 Penn Ave
I still predict that down the road a revolt will come if the issues of concern are not resolved in due course of time.
Obama proclaimed that he was the one that they’d been waiting for,
and they believed him.
He tried to implement utopian socialism, and it is having miserable effects, so,
he must not be the one to “do it right”.
Next socialist, please?
....Or rather they are begining to wake up and smell the coffee.
I'm afraid I'm not that
There, much more accurate...
