Poll: 2014 looks worse for Dems than 2010
FOX News ^ | 04/29/14 | Chris Stirewalt

Posted on 04/29/2014 9:00:50 AM PDT by nhwingut

It’s never been worse for President Obama in the Washington Post/ABC News poll, which finds him at a 41 percent job approval rating, about 13 points below his standing in the poll at this time in 2010, the year when his party got creamed in midterm elections. We’ve talked about the tsunami alert for Democrats this fall, but the sirens are getting too loud even for partisans and wishful thinkers on the left to ignore. There is no common measure so predictive of a party’s performance in congressional races than the job approval rating of a president of the same party. And Obama is looking increasingly like a toxic asset for Democrats desperate to cling to a Senate majority.

The Dems only hope is for the Reps to pass comprehensive immigration reform this year. The GOPe is hellbent on passing it this year so they can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Not to worry.

The MSM will lie, cheat, prevaricate, make things up, pretend, and generally cheat the dim-bulb-crats into victory.

Wanna bet?

What, me worry? Not a chance. Nobody can poll the dead, the mentally incompetent, the felons, those who are registered in more than one state. Polls mean nothing.

Propaganda to make republicans relax, become complacent and not to worry about getting to the voting booth. Same MO...different day.

If 2014 is better for America than 2010, that will be a very good thing. I’d like to see a conservative (not just republican) Congress that will repeal ObamaCare, “slash” spending to Bill Clinton’s already extravagant level, and then repeal every single vestige of Obama’s corrupt regime. It’s a dream, but it’s a beautiful dream.

The simple fact that Barack Hussein Obama has even a 41% approval rating is proof that America is forever DOOMED.

Actually, the fact that he was ever able to be elected at all proves it. The country we loved is gone.

Good! I hope every republican governor is reelected, maybe take a few more and we gain another 1000 legislative seats!

"Better" would mean actually TAKING the Senate, something we should have done in spades in 2010. I was expecting a super-majority takeover, after the demonstrated abomination of this administration.

But the fraud was too great.

Given the massive influx of Democratic voters resulting from amnesty this prediction is no longer valid. The Democrats will gain control of the House and increase their numbers in the Senate. There will never be another Republican President. We have been conquered by the Third World without the necessity of one shot being fired.

His real approval is more im the mid 30s. This was a D+11 poll - D32 R21 I38. The true party id split is more like D+5.

Yeah, the GOPe remind me of the aging criminal who goes out and commits another crime the day he’s released from jail, because he wants to go back in.
The GOPe is completely afraid to lead.

Any worse and the republicans will beg Americans to vote for the democrats to ensure their loss in 14. They have no intention of participating in the very racist idea of a silly election to challenge Obama.

My biggest concern for 2014 and beyond is election fraud. If it is all done on hacked voting machines that are tallied by compromised software we are doomed!

It was instructive that many electronic voting machines were defaulting to the “D” party at the confirmation stage in the last major election. That was no accident at all.

The Democrats are still enraged that they couldn’t pull off the theft of the 2000 election, and so think they have justification for doing “whatever it takes” to win going forward. And they do mean whatever it takes.

That 41% is probably the amount of people on some type of welfare now.....since the rolls have increased so much under Obama.
The main problem is the others are actually fooled into thinking Republicans will cut any of them.

Just curious, but if the congress simply repealed the individual and corporate mandates (including specifying all the services we are now required to cover, like pediatric dentistry for 50 year olds with no kids, maternity and birth control for same) wouldn't that essentially put us back to pre-Obamacare days? Sure, allow 25 year olds to stay on parents' policy (its not free, somebody pays the extra premium), but also allow insurance companies to sell policies across state lines.

I don't think the entire bill needs to be repealed to get to an acceptable insurance policy.

The RATS will come through. With the pubbies pushing amnesty for illegals, and downplaying repeal of Obamacare, plus illegal voting and propaganda from the MSM the pubbies will blow it.

2012 was a D+6. D38 R32 I29.
http://www.cnn.com/election/2012/results/race/president

Gallup has it currently at D+4, and D+2 if you include leaners.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/15370/party-affiliation.aspx

Definitely not D+11.

There is a lot of sludge in the law, literally hundreds of pages of bad law.

http://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/rights/law/index.html click on “read the full text”

Requiring a particular payment ratio is wrong.
Requiring that insurance plans include particular items, such as birth control, abortion, or gender “reassignment”, is wrong.
The medical device tax (which raises the cost of medical care) is the wrong way to pay for medical care.
Giving the IRS any role in medical care is wrong.
Giving FedGov any role in medical care is wrong, and their role should be cut back beyond just repealing ObamaCare.
Giving FedGov any role in regulating prices, or in imposing penalties on insurance companies for offering plans that Obama and Pelosi don’t like is wrong.
Restricting the factors that can be considered in medical insurance pricing (to age, tobacco, geographic area, number of people covered) is wrong - they should not be prohibited from considering alcohol/drug use and any other factors that the company wants to consider.
Guaranteed coverage is wrong; private companies should not have to sell “insurance” to individuals who already have a condition that will make the coverage a guaranteed loser for the company.
My car insurance does not cover oil changes, gasoline, or new tires, and requiring medical insurance to cover wellness, preventative care, and other routine expenses is wrong.
Requiring medical insurance to cover the dentist and to cover eyeglasses is wrong.
Providing FedGov subsidies to insurers is wrong.
Having FedGov health care “exchanges” is wrong.

I could go on for a LONG time, and I haven’t even explained why most of this is wrong. The wrongness of ObamaCare should be obvious to those who value limited government under the enumerated powers, individual freedom, and the free market. The point is that we should not repeal specific lines and clauses from ObamaCare; the correct approach is to repeal the whole thing or at least all but a small number of specified lines/clauses.

Hey, the media are just trying to suppress the votes against the Rats. Does not really matter much, as the Rat Voter Fraud Machine has never been in better shape.

So why should Republicans in Congress be in such a hurry to pass Obama’s immigration deform?

41% favorability is depressingly high, but I guess it’s the locked-in gibsmedat crowd.

A Republican Senate won’t mean much without the presidency, but I’ll take it.

Aw....come on dude. Fraud my ass. Look at the candidates we had. Sharron Angle in NV, who was not politically astute enough to pull off a win. And how about sweet, little Christine “I’m not a witch” O’Donnell in Delaware, who never had a chance after that. And Ken Buck in CO who could not keep his foot out of his mouth. And Joe Miller in AK who could not even win against a “Write-in” candidate.... It’s not voter fraud that’s killing us. It’s having candidates who have sh** for brains........ ‘nuff said.
