Fox News poll: Obama's approval hits new low (38%)
Foxnews ^

Posted on 03/05/2014 3:01:18 PM PST by Red in Blue PA

President Obama’s job approval rating hits a record low this week, as a majority of Americans say his administration has mostly failed at growing the economy, creating jobs, improving health care and the country’s image.

That’s according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten -- 38 percent -- approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).

It’s a FOX NEWS poll. Will be dismissed as biased by the lame ass media.

If the media stop supporting him, he would still get the 13% black racist vote.

The lower he goes, the more extreme and dangerous he will become.

Will the Republicans do anything in response?

Historically though, Foxnews has had a higher number than other polling outfits so I think the real number will be proven far worse in coming days and weeks by other polling outfits

I predict that if President Obama’s approval numbers get any lower, black people will be reminding everyone that he is half white.

About 13% of the population is black, and support him no matter what. About another 20% are dyed in wool liberal/radical types, who generally support him, but are sometimes frustrated that he isn’t liberal enough.

Between the. Groups, that’s damn near all of his support in this poll. Just about everyone else in this country disapproves of this guy.

Actually, over 50 are. Its just that some of the morons don’t like the current pain. If that pain gets appeased, the moron in them will shine brightly through.

The lower he goes, the more extreme and dangerous he will become.

And the more confined he will become to the White House only. That little parcel of land will become his prison before long as the Secret Service won't let him off that plantation; to hard to safe guard him (the Secret Service are just doing their job as tasked, protecting the Preisdent. This one just happens to be a kenyan piece of fecal mattter; I don't hold it against those guys).

Funny to be sure, but the LIV blacks won't care They will just riot and call everyone else rassis for not supporting everything their second black pResident is demanding. Remember, these same people didn't sound a peep when billy-boy was called the first black prez... They can piss off.

Sure they will. They’ll fire arrows at Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for daring to stand against Obama Care, raising the debt ceiling, and any number of other leftist agendas.

An issue I've been worried about since day one. Any severe narcissistic personality disorder has at its core repressed rage. Will breathe a huge sigh of relief when January 20, 2017 roles around. A lot can happen in 1052 days. .

Days until the Presidential Inauguration

And as the Republicans push Amnesty, screw vets, throw Christians to the lions and hand him blank checks it’s becoming harder for the brain dead moderates to buy that. But many will.

His advisors know he is conored. They are trying to find anything to help him, and it doesn’t appear to be helping. The unhinged intro by Gov. Malloy and his rambling minimum wage speech at CCSU in CT today might win over the LIV students in the room, but not others.

Don’t worry about it as it’s a set in stone eventuality. Just figure out what to do when our ‘party’ stands there and watches it happen... impotently...or in collusion..

The number is closer to 50% if you recall the last election. The 12% difference in his current approval rate can be attributed to Obama not being liberal enough for these mentally challenged Americans.

I suspect most future travels will be to “safe” areas, I.e. Liberal colleges and lib states. At this point, I’m sure they are keeping the local political opinion of Obama high on the travel list, hence his visit to CCSU in CT today.

Yeah, it’s popular enough to account for about 3% plus their mommies... of course if his agenda gets any gayer is when does he begin to alienate blacks. Or does he have to officially announce it... you know... for that to happen?

Without the media supporting this clown, he would be at 2%.

There you go! Obama's support is based on low-information voters, citizens who were never taught the federal government's constitutionally limited powers, the media determined to keep such citizens in the dark about those limited powers.
