Devastating Numbers for Obama In New York Times Poll
Breitbart ^ | 24 Jun 2014 | John Nolte

Posted on 06/24/2014 6:39:22 PM PDT by mandaladon

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama's competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies.

In just one month, the president's job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%.

In just one month, disapproval of Obama's foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points to a record high of 58%. With only 36% approving, that ties this poll's record low in this category.

In the run up to his re-election, when the president was triumphantly declaring the Iraq issue settled and Al Qaeda decimated, foreign policy was one of the president's strengths. At the time, the president's approval ratings on this front hovered at or near 50%.

Now that both of those boasts have been proven a lie; the infamous Russian "reset" has resulted in Putin seizing Crimea, and Obama's infamous "red line" resulted in the use of chemical weapons against civilians becoming acceptable again as a full-blown human rights disaster unfurls in Syria, the Emperor is buck naked.

On the question of the president's handling of Iraq, Obama's standing has flipped entirely. Back in October of 2011, the last time the Times asked about Iraq, Obama stood at a healthy 60% approval, 30% disapprove.

Today, with an al Qaeda affiliated terrorist group creating its own country by seizing large parts of Iraq (and Syria), only 37% approve of the president's handling of Iraq while 52% approve.

Is he running for a third term? If not, what do polls matter?

I don’t think dictators care about their popularity among the masses, as long as they maintain a loyal gestapo.

Does it matter???

For a guy like Obama the more people hate what he’s doing the more glee he gets from doing more of the same.

Hopefully he drags his party to an ignominious defeat this November.

OBVIOUSLY, this is a bogus poll!

These people probably targeted the “conservative” regions of New York, like Queens and the Bronx!

Do I really need the /sarc tag?!?!

He’s been falling to 40 points the last two years. Another bs poll. His number is more like 19.

The lower he sinks in the polls; the more energized he becomes, the polls demonstrate his plans are working and there is not damned thing anyone can or will do about it.

We are a hair short of being a full blown communist country, in case there is anyone, anywhere, who hasn’t noticed. IMO!

If obama is unpopular it will be easier to oppose him and the horrible things he still wants to do.

I've wondered the same. I think it's a campaign of humility deception before the election.
I'm noticing a trend from Dems beginning with "Woe is Me" starting with Hillary.

No, I don't think it is, it certainly is a deception. A pathetic one.

If he were white that might work. He’s perceived as being black.

So, if my math is correct, if you deduct the 14% that support him for strictly racial motives, that's 26%, or about only 1 in 4.

I'm bemused that there are that many mentally retarded people. Nature vs nurture. Must have been all the leaded gasoline.

He’ll simply double-down on the destruction to rub our noses in it. To wit, “UAC” pouring across the border in an invasion planned by our own government. All part of Cloward-Piven.

Polls are meaningless at this point since Obama can’t run for a third term - my bet is he simply doesn’t care about them. All he’s really concerned about now is implementing the rest of his strategy to tear down the old America so it can then be rebuilt upon socialist/totalitarian foundations.

This man is truly the most dangerous and destructive President in the history of our Republic, and we brought this calamity upon ourselves by stupidly electing him - twice.

What is wrong with these people? Do they really believe the greatest country ever devised by man needs to be fundamentally transformed? Have they ever talked with anyone who has lived under a communist dictatorship? Have they ever read Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago? Have they ever really experienced the fear of the 3 am knock on the door and the Black Maria waiting below?

Or are they all just ignorant sophomoric lightweights who think Che and Marxism are cool. The problem is they vote. Do they even know what the Cloward-Piven strategy is? Or are they for it? If so, why?

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!" - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, from "The Gulag Archipelago"

So what?

Did Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot or Mao ever worried about any polls.

Obama’s poll numbers could go down to zero, and we’ll still be stuck with him.

Yep, for 2 1/2 more years. This is like polling passengers on the Titanic after it strikes the iceberg, on their faith in the Captain safely getting them to New York. It doesn't stop the sinking.

Dear Leader, Berry Obongo, could care less about his polling numbers. Will the MSM start writing or broadcasting the truth so even the low info crowd understand what he's done and is doing? Fat chance. The MSM is Barry's Bodyguard of Liars.
