Skip to comments.Obama's poll numbers are amazing!

Have you seen Obamas poll numbers? They are among the lowest in history. As of today, Obamas approval rating is at 38%. Thats just barely above Richard Nixon.
Keep in mind Obama has the support of about 35% to 40% of the American population that will NEVER abandon him, no matter what he does, no matter how bad the jobs numbers look, no matter how low the economy goes, no matter how much scandal and corruption is exposed, no matter how strong the facts are against him.
Nothing will ever change their minds. These are the low information voters of the Democratic Party.
So just think about that for a moment. Let those numbers sink in. If 35% to 40% of the population would support a Democrat for president if he ran from a prison cell if 35% to 40% would support Obama no matter what he does, no matter how far America sinks under his leadership, how could Obamas approval rating be at only 38%?
That means that among the rest of America, outside of loyal, lifelong, Kool-Aid drinking Democrats, Obama's ratings are nil. Among non-partisan voters, he is the lowest-rated president in history. No numbers like this have ever been recorded, if you filter out the crazies.

Saw a couple other polls that have him around 43-44% And of those that DON’T approve, around 15-17% do so because they think he is too Conservative.
We are at the bottom of a very steep Hill. The enemy of your enemy is not always your friend.
Well, he’s a bad president. Kinda goes with the territory.
MSM is spotting him 30 points so as not to embarass their “chosen one”.
A third of God's angels rebelled and were cast out of Heaven as demons. Look as where that got us.
Headline news across the MSM were he a republican.
38% still represents lot of fools. Even if only 10% that is still a lot of fools.
LOL - Great post Rooster...
35% to 40% of the American population have the IQ of a chimp but always hope for a free ride.
These poll reports don’t take into account the MSM will keep his real numbers “their secret”.
Figures don’t lie, but lots of liars figure.
The media still burns incense to the Clown’s image, and bow their knees to the man-child.
Hven’t looked lately but I bet Rasmussen still has him around 45% approval.
He doesn't need to care, as long as Boehner & Co. continue to bow before him (or shall I say, bend over for him). And there doesn't look to be an end in sight to that spectacle.
Who cares when an executive order will do?
Bam has a way to go before he gets to the low of GWB, who at one point hit 25% approval.
“A third of God’s angels rebelled and were cast out of Heaven as demons. Look as where that got us. “
No doubt they are the Democratic base.
As bad as this is going to sound, the right wishes it had these types of numbers.....
You must have been dreaming, never happened.
Minorities, women, illegal immigrants mostly. They have come to expect the government to provide them with cradle to grave security so that they can spend their lives watching daytime television and enjoying other recreational activities on a full-time basis.
They have come to believe that Republicans and conservatives are mean-spirited people who if they had their way, would take away their freebies and force them to find jobs.
Which is really sad because having a job and earning your own paycheck is the most effective way to raise one's self-esteem and self-worth.
Prosperity = Happiness
Sitting at home collecting a welfare check is actually demeaning and not conducive at all to happiness. If we cannot get these people to realize that, then all is lost. This nation will eventually collapse because we will reach the point where there are more people riding the wagon than pulling it. And that is just not sustainable.
You are exactly correct.
Mark my words. We will NEVER see a conservative president again in our lifetimes.
Think about it. If the worst Democrat in History, (ok 2nd worst) can pull 38% in a non-election year then think about a “regular” democrat running as a moderate?
Well Franklin is 100% correct and we are nearing the end of our republic.
I agree with you that we will likely never see a true conservative elected president again. Too many people now depend on government handouts and anybody campaigning to take them away will be summarily defeated.
Our only hope is somebody with the charisma of a Ronald Reagan coming along. Somebody like that might still be able to eke out an electoral victory, but the window of opportunity is closing.
“a pole of ticks...”
I know it was probably unintentional but that is a beautiful example of Cockney rhyming slang for “politics. Mind if I use it?
Actually, I'm not so sure about Hollywood----
<><> WASHINGTON TIMES REPORTED: 2012 Candidate Obama trucked through Tinseltown to vacuum-up bucks....he pitched to 150 people, who paid $25,000 to eat at a Wolfgang Puck restaurant with him......at the time the H/weird suckups planned an Obama star on Hollywoods Walk of Fame to cement his place in La-La Land....until they found out they couldn't keep their health plans as Obama promised.
<><>Ben Affleck recently said he felt Hollywood was being used by politicians as a fund-raising machine (words to that effect),
<><> Moocher Obama bombed bigtime at last year's Oscars when they beamed her in from the WH surrounded by military guards (like she was Evita). The buzz was those in the seats heaved a collective groan when she appeared on a large screen over Jack Nicholson's head.
Even more pointedly, post-Oscar stories left her out of "who wore what" red carpet reports---she used the same designer as one starlet but print and media reports omitted any mention of Moosh, or her glitzy dress (she was entertaining in the WH at the time and was surrounded by uniformed military guards).
LOYAL DEMOCRATS LIKE DONNY DEUTSCH WEIGHED IN: "As far as I'm concerned, she was an uninvited guest. Now what I mean by that is (as an advert guru), you have to give the consumer, the viewer, the ultimate respect. They tuned in to watch movie stars, to watch movies. And all of a sudden, politics is thrown at them."
"If I want to watch her on Jimmy Fallon, that's okay. But, (the Awards)---that was an intrusion, and I have a feeling that three out of four Americans -- Democrat or Republican -- don't want to see the First Lady (there).....the tone of it, it was almost a monarch quality.....an elitist flavor. I was going, 'huh?' and I'm a Democrat," Deutsch told host Piers Morgan. "I just thought it was very very tone deaf and I was really surprised they did it," Deutsch concluded.
-—Mark my words. We will NEVER see a conservative president again in our lifetimes.——
Of course we will, after the repubilcan wins, the fed will stop printing money and interest rates will skyrocket, the stock market will crash and they will get the blame...
Go to the Gallup historical poll numbers for GWB and check the dates from Sept. 2008 thru Nov. 2008 and you will see his numbers hovered between 32% and 25% percent. It’s in black and white and not a dream pal.
Hollywood’s discovered their product is “entertainment - it’s not schoolmarm lectures scolding conservatives.
Or maybe only Donny Deutshc gets it... Either way, it’s a start.
