Obama's approval numbers deep in the tank again
The Washington Examiner ^ | 25 Jul 2014 | T. Becket Adams

Posted on 07/25/2014 6:05:23 PM PDT by mandaladon

President Obama's approval rating declined this week by three points to 39 percent, down from its previous posting of 42 percent, according to the latest Gallup polling data.

The new data, which Gallup collects daily and has a margin of error of plus of minus 3 percentage points, reflects how American voters feel about the job Obama is doing in the White House.

The decline in approval comes at a time when the White House has fumbled its response to the growing crisis on the border, Russia's provocations in the east and the increasingly violent civil war in Iraq.

Of the 1,500 adults surveyed by Gallup, roughly 54 percent say they disapprove of Obama's performance in the Oval Office.

The president's current approval rating almost matches his all-time low in October 2011, just after Standard and Poor's downgraded the U.S. credit rating and a jobs report that showed little to no growth, of just 38 percent, according to Gallup.

This obviously isn't the worst approval rating for any U.S. president, as George W. Bush left the White House in 2008 with an approval rating of only 34 percent, according to the same source.

Still, it's rather remarkable to see that Obama's approval rating has declined to levels not seen since around the time of the downgrade, the passage of the extraordinarily contentious Affordable Care Act and the November midterm “red wave” of 2010

Just think how low his numbers would go if the media
was AGAINST him, like they were against GWB.

He doesn’t care. He’s not running for anything, again. It’s full steam ahead with the agenda. God forbid that Democrats don’t get ousted in significant numbers this November.

But the voters still love their boy. It’s just everything he does to them that they don’t like. The people living in this country are suffering from a severe case of battered wife syndrome.

As long as the Dems keep the gravy flowing, the Entitlement Army will keep the votes flowing.

Just wait until the real fighting with Russia starts, now that we are sending US troops in Ukraine as “Advisors”. The libs will wrap themselves in the same flag they have been burning for 30 years.

I wasn’t sure if the actress Rue McClanahan was alive or dead so I checked a Wikipedia entry which led me to this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rue_McClanahan

[1] In a July 2008 interview, she weighed in on the 2008 Presidential campaigns. Regarding Barack Obama, she said:

This is the damnedest election I’ve ever lived through, and Obama is the most amazing candidate I’ve ever bumped into. The man has unshakable integrity. He’s the nearest thing to Lincoln we’ve seen.

He doesn’t care. He has no effective opposition party.

Nah, they are suffering from abject stupidity coupled with the “gibbsmedat syndrome.”

Interesting. 39% happens to be the percentage of Americans with an IQ below that of a handball.

Rue McClanahan spent too many years hanging around Bea (”Maude”) Arthur, who was Ed Assner in a skirt. It addled her brain, if she ever had one.

And then Gallup said that if the election were held today Romney would win by 6 points!

An even better measure is to check the source of income of those that voted for him.

“I’m hoping for 29%.”

The MSM relentlessly hounded GW while they continue to
bolster Obama. If the media was truly balanced there is
no doubt in my mind Bush would have had higher numbers
while Obama would now be wishing to reach as high as 29%.

Makes no difference. His rule is not based on appealing to voters concerned with issues, but rather on the ragtag coalition he has cobbled together to keep him and his fascist brethren in power. It’s the new paradigm.

You can see from the numbers above he is UNDER WATER with everyone except kids, Easterners, blacks, Hispanics, people with post-graduate degrees and Democrats.

His “base” is shrinking.

Not that he gives a damn.

I’m starting to see Democraps talking about that which is a good sign. I guess it’s starting to sink into their cement stuffed skulls that “protecting the party” isn’t going to do them any good when there isn’t a country. The way this has to go though is BOTH parties need to get involved otherwise you know Democraps, they will blame this entirely on Republicans and racism for the next 100 years. What needs to happen above all else is one Republican needs to stand up along with a Democrat and say “Enough is enough. We understand this guy is an Islamic foreign agent. What are we going to do about it? He has to go” If Republicans on the other hand wait until they win the Senate and THEN do it, two things will happen: Democrats being the backstabbers they are will blame it on racism and we will get another radical in office. OR they can get Democrats involved ON CAMERA saying THIS GUY HAS GOT TO GO. I know a LOT of liberals and they are waking up bigtime to this jackass, and the Republican party is NOT taking advantage of that! BIG MISTAKE

I was young and stupid and a democrat once, then I became a Christian. A simple commercial could change their vote.

Show pictures of babies, children, teens, 20, 21, 22, ... 30,...yr olds and the words

YOU ARE IN DEBT 117 TRILLION (or more) AND GROWING

$117,000,000,000,000

17 trillion in debt and 100 trillion in unfunded mandates. (Might have to explain that to public school graduates)

OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE INCREASED THE DEBT OVER 7 or more TRILLION IN THE LAST 8 years, more than all the prior presidents put together. You (pictures of college students, young families, young women....) will be slaves to the government.

Even the illegal aliens will want to leave.
