Skip to comments.Obama's approval numbers deep in the tank again
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

I’m hoping for 29%.
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.
“But the voters still love their boy. Its just everything he does to them that they dont like. The people living in this country are suffering from a severe case of battered wife syndrome.”
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:
 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.
“The people living in this country are suffering from a severe case of battered wife syndrome.”
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.
I’m hoping for 2.9%.
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.
