Poll: Obama's approval rating sinks to new low (41% Approval)
cbs ^ | 3/12/2012 | Stephanie Condon

President Obama's approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times survey. The drop may be partially attributable to rising gas prices.

Just 41 percent of Americans approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, according to the poll, conducted from March 7 to 11. Another 47 percent disapprove of his performance, up from 41 percent last month.

Mr. Obama's approval rating was 50 percent last month.

The average U.S. price of a gallon of gasoline has jumped 12 cents over the past two weeks. The poll found that most Americans, 54 percent, believe gas prices are something a president can do a lot about.

I think it’s something else...

If seeBS reported it as 41%, then there is something up their sleeve, some trick, some smoke-n-mirror, thing that is up to turn this around for their guy.

I don’t know exactly what, but there is something... all the kleimers are changing their tactics, and reporting “bad” news for zer0.

It could be something as simple as changing the direction of momentum... that is, report very bad #’s for their guy, so that later, when needed, they can bring them back and the headlines will be that zer0 has the big MO. (which he does, btw, have a VERY big MO, if u catch my drift).

Could be something else, like some military action is planned, and this is part of the change in MO, to “rally around the pResident”.

Something else up?

It’s a pathetic number. Wanna know the dirty little secret? Even Obama’s pathetic 41% approval rating is well above the 34% approval rating of former Governor Mitt RomneyCare when he hobbled lamely out of his Massachusetts governorship in 2006!! All the more reason Mitt RomneyCare must be defeated as the GOP nominee. Can’t you just see the Obama ads against him now? “Yeah you might think I’m terrible, but Massachusetts thought Romney was worse than ME!!”” Romney will be a disaster.

Since CBS probably only polls Democrats, this has to be disquieting at the DNC. Also, this is probably likely voters. Among all Democrats, it’s likely worse.

You got it.

This summer, gas will be $5.25, unemployment will be 8.9% and we will be pulling out of Afghanistan.

He’ll cook everything and in October, gas will be “down” to $4.50, unemployment will be “down” to 8.7% and we’ll be fighting a “just” war in Iran.

The MSM will wet themselves over his titanic intellect, the sheeple will still be watching Dancing With the Stars, and we’ll be stuck with this idiot for another 4 years.

I hope I’m wrong. Please, someone tell me I’m wrong.

Doncha miss the Bush years when news of a poll like this would drive the headlines and news shows for a week?

23 out of 24 hours a day at CNNMSNBC dedicated to the failures of leadership that drove the numbers so low.

Wolf Blitzed , breathlessly counting down to the release of the next damaging poll numbers....

I wouldn’t complain if gas gets up to $6.00 a gallon if it causes Obama to lose his reelection bid in November; for real.

Yeah a majority of voters are going to say “Yeepee gas prices went from $ 5.25 a gallon to $ 4.50 a gallon and unemployment is only 8.7% let us re-elect Obama”... Seriously man, get real.

Partially due to gas prices and partially due to the phoney “War on Women” idiocy.

Interesting internals:

This poll was conducted by telephone from March 7-11, 2012 among 1009 adults nationwide.

878 interviews were conducted with registered voters, including 301 with voters who said they plan to vote in a Republican primary. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The margin of error for the sample of registered voters could be plus or minus three points and six points for the sample of Republican primary voters. The error for subgroups may be higher. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.


It looks like they are hiding some of the results. I think things are far worse for the poser. That might explain the all out occupation media push for hussein. Do all they have is a condom war?
