Obama 's poll numbers are amazing !
Fox News ^ | March 7, 214 | Wayne Allyn Root

Posted on 03/09/2014 6:52:43 AM PDT by Innovative

Have you seen Obama’s poll numbers? They are among the lowest in history. As of today, Obama’s approval rating is at 38%. That’s just barely above Richard Nixon.

That means that among the rest of America, outside of loyal, lifelong, Kool-Aid drinking Democrats, Obama's ratings are nil.

Remember that about 47% of Americans get entitlement checks from government. Obama is PAYING for their support and he still only has 38% approval. You know you're unpopular when even bribes don't work anymore!

He has virtually zero support among the 53% who aren't getting a check from government. You can't find another instance of that in the history of American politics.

I don’t know, they still seem high. And I don’t know about Nixon, but I heard that Bush, fils, was in the 20s at the end of his term.

I think it’s amazing that he still polls this well.

And yet, he won re-election. The media carried him through to last year. That was the goal. Keep a liberal Dem in office so a Republican president could not undermine Obamacare and all the other Socialist programs he put in place. It doesn’t matter if his popularity is low now. They will try to push it up so the elections aren’t a disaster for the Dems but even if they are, Obama is still in office and can veto anything a Republican Congress does.

“NOW his supporters “get it.” “

They might complain. They might even say conservatives were, in this one instance, right. But they can not and will not generalize this situation to the left being essentially wrong. So, they’ll all vote for Hillary, or even Satan. They vote on color, “sexiness”, good hair, teeth and a winning smile. Most of all, they vote on liberalism. But, they do not judge content of character, or know enough about economics to understand redistribution is theft.

"it's" is the perfect word. IT describes her perfectly.

WHAT a horrible thought: ANOTHER Clinton in the oval office. HE was a national disgrace. She's HORRIBLE and it would be HORRIBLE to elect her. I shudder at the thought.

It's really up to the GOP to come up with someone better than a Mormon.

Unfortunately, this is not true. Sadly, many people who do very well, and should know better, still choose to drink the liberal Kool-Aid.

All true.
For Democrats, "content of character" means the liberal way or the highway. A HAND-OUT, not a HAND UP.

They DO know that retribution is theft but those wild-eyed fanatics feel that right is on their side, even if it means dealing with Satan himself.

Obama's approval among “the Heartland of America” (non-partisan middle class Americans) is lower than Nixon.

Lower than George W. Bush.

Lower than Lyndon Johnson at the height of the Vietnam war.

Lower than Jimmy Carter at the height of the Iranian hostage crisis, with the added burden of an economy in misery and malaise.

Would like to see the data.

As long as Eric Holder has his back and Congress sits back and does nothing these poll numbers mean diddly squat. If a man has a gun to your head, whether or not you approve, you will still do as he says.

George W Bush did hit 25% at low point — at around the 2008 election time, when the Dems hammered him — , but finished higher, at 34%.

One glance would tell a rational experienced person that he would be and is incompetent. His incompetence will be expressed in poor performance. The latter, of course, being reflected in the polls. People are hurting all over the nation.

P.S. Perhaps it is the diet of $ 200/pound taxpayer purchased Ragu beef?

Poll, Shmoll.

This guy has the base where it counts.

Big states with big electoral votes: Urban African-Americans 99%, LGBT, 100%, White Women, 65%, Young Voters 80%, Latinos legal and illegal, 75%, Jews 75%, Catholics 55% ... just in case, they have a fraud machine that works pretty darn well. Take Baltinmore, where there the same voters have been showing up at the polls since 1789.... ditto Philly ... There were hundreds of entire, very high turnout precincts in which Romney, for example, did not receive a single vote. That's right, not 1.

Polls? How you gonna beat this set of numbers? White men over 50 ranching in Idaho?

Same here.

I don’t believe he was supposed to be reelected until Benghazi made it necessary so they could do a cover up.

There are too many things Zippo did in his first term that were designed to be failures and problems for whoever was the president in 2013.

Orchestrate a failed republican presidency and Hillary would be a walk-in come 2016.

maybe they're complaining that the bribes aren't big enough (he's not liberal enough for them)

If you have cable TV, there won’t be much on to watch.


 

 

 

 

If there isn’t much on to watch, you will answer your door whenever someone rings.


 

 

 

 

If you open your door, you will see mormons.


 

 

 

 

If you talk to mormons, they will trick you into “praying about whether something is true”.


 

 

 

 

If you rely on your feelings, you may become a mormon.


 

 

 

 

If you become a mormon, you will have to wear magic underwear!


 

 

 

 

If you wear magic underwear, people will immediately label you as a cultist.


DON’T be a cultist!

I would have thought that to be a matter of ethics, not economics. I have known a lot of people who have never had a class in economics but understood very well that redistribution is theft. Some of them had less than an eighth grade education.

Lol.

YEARS ago we did have the Mormons. That was when our neighborhood was still young. We're all old now and the Mormons have gone the way of the dodo.
I had that read when the Internet first came out. The Mormon kids would get a hold of the REAL world, and THAT'S all she wrote.
It's happened that way. I have a distant cousin by marriage who WAS a Mormon. His stepfather was my mother's brother. My cousin married a Catholic, became Catholic. Now, he's nothing, living in Las Vegas. I love him dearly. He's more of a cousin than my blood cousins.

That direct T.V. ad has to be one of the more stupid and inane commercial. Of course, there are SO MANY, it's not easy to discern.

That is what mute buttons are for.

WAY BACK when we were married (1975) my mechanical engineer husband heard my lament over the ENDLESS commercials.
So one day he gave me a little box with an OFF and ON switch and a LONG wire from seat on the sofa to the back of the T.V. It had a nice loud CLICK.
He had hooked the wire to the SOUND on the T.V. and voila!! I had a MUTE SWITCH. Best invention ever, almost.

When the "mute" switch was available, I chuckled because I had had one for YEARS.

Life is good.

I still miss him.

NO wild berries for me!
