Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided....Currently, 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Obama is performing his role as president.

KEYWORDS: 2012; fail
president’s Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives. Currently, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. That matches the president’s lowest approval rating of 2012. Fifty-four percent (54%) at least somewhat disapprove

I actually think this reflects the weather more than F&F, gay marriage and Latino pandering! I've taken results of most polls between Memorial Day and Labor Day with a couple of pounds of salt -- "normal" people are spending more time outside grilling, at the beach, in the mountains or away on vacation -- leaving the polling tilted towards those who are staying at home with the blinds drawn.

The last couple of days have been a brief window into what is really going on. IMO.

Oh, yeah. And Zero is in much more trouble than his biggest fans in the MSM imagine!

45% Strongly Disapprove. That's a tall mountain to climb. Barring some unexpected development, which could always be engineered by the incumbent, this race is Romney's to lose.

No doubt if people were more honest,
it would be more like -32.
There are always going to be those who voted for the marxist occupier, but will never openly admit what a huge mistake they inflicted on America by doing so.

In February, 2009, Obama said that if he had not turned the economy around within 3 years, his would be a one-term proposition. Instead of turning the economy around, we got Obamacare, which may soon be ruled unconstitutional. The man wasted his time and ours, and our children’s money.

45% Strongly Disapprove.


It’s probably closer to 50% given that some poll responders may be reluctant to express their true feelings. Whatever, its strongly indicating that peoples’ patience with ‘hope and change’ is wearing very thin. Obama is appearing more and more like Jimmy Carter every day, but with lots of scandals thrown in. He’s in serious political trouble and next week could be the tipping point.

A five point lead with 10% either undecided or preferring another candidate. The incumbent president stuck at 43%.

The Mitt Romney camp must be very happy with this. It allows their candidate to keep a low profile while allowing the opponent to twist in the wind and make all the mistakes.

From today's Rasmussen poll:

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting 48% of the vote, while President Obama earns 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The president picks up support from just 35% of white voters overall. That’s eight points below the 43% of the white vote he won in 2008. The gender gap is now at 11 points. That’s little changed from the 12-point gap in 2008. Romney leads by 11 among men, and the candidates are even among women."

Winning only 35% of white voters (and especially being even among women voters) means he cannot win:

Obama's White Support Is Too Low to Win

Obama is even among women?

But what about the war on women and Sandra Fluke and birth control pills and Rush Limbaugh and all the other stuff that liberals were enraged about? That was supposed to translate into major women’s support for Obama. Did the liberals miscalculate????

And the June BLS Unemployment Report could be another nail in the coffin.

Unemployment ticked up in May to 8.2%. That is one data point.

If it goes up again in June, that is a trend.

Will it?

No.

They know that their fate depends upon the economy.

All that stuff is meant to divert the attention of women voters.

The same applies to Hispanic voters, Black voters, Gay voters, etc.

A miserable economy affects all voters.

They know that, and they are desperate.

Having shot their load ineffectively with their massive spending, they have nothing left, except these rocks and bricks they keep tossing out there.

In the face of the T.E.A. Party refulgence the Left can't afford to let up now and the incompetent Obama is a definite liability...

...so they wait for their Benazir Bhutto to peek above her protection to take the fatal bullet so they can move on to more promising strategies.

Obama is the only one who has his back now and is paranoid of the wrong people...stupid is not knowing who hates you in a manner to do you harm.

while President Obama earns 43%.... Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove,

That means there are more people in the poll (which I hope is a perfect sample) who STRONGLY disapprove of Obama than say they will VOTE for Obama.

In other words, that's 45% of the public he is not going to win back. That means he is going to have to beg, borrow and steal to win the remaining 6-7% he needs for re-election. Because, in a two-person race (which is what this is, in reality), Obama is going to need at least a 49% plurality.

Of course, state-by-state is probably more important than national numbers and I think that is still going to be extremely close. Romney is probably going to need one of Iowa, Wisconsin or Michigan to break his way to get to 270 unless he can surprise in Pennsylvania or Virginia.

June has been a terrible month for Obama and we still have to see what the Supreme Court does this week on ObamaCare. I think, ironically, that striking down ObamaXare may actually be a big boost to the economy which might help Obama in November. In addition, oil prices are sinking and are probably going to drive gas prices back down below $3/gal by the end of the summer in most states.

No spiking the football until November 7th, folks.

Curious, then, that since Obama announced the new policy on immigration, his support has fallen, while Romney has risen in the polls.

Cavuto needs to examine conventional wisdom more closely.

You’re assuming he wanted to turn the economy around and that he had a plan if he did. Cynic that I am, I believe he INTENDS to DESTROY our economy... and he’s succeeding.

...Think of it as a helmsman.....has to navigate the ship around the world from continent to continent .....and take into account both the long term trend and short term perturbations...storms...huge waves...mutinous crew....

So Romney ignores spurious advice from Cavuto and others.

Good example is Captain Woodget of Cutty Sark fame....faced down a mutinous crew with a pistol and axe while rounding Cape Horn in a storm ..(used the axe to put holes in the life boats so the mutineers had nowhere to go.)

Romney leads by 5% on numbers, but the rest of the story is what matters. In intensity, patriotic Americans who strongly disapprove of Obama constitute 83% of those who at least somewhat disapprove of socialism and tyranny. Those who strongly approve of the petty dictator constitute 52% of those who at least somewhat approve of communism. That intensity factor is what Obama is trying to fix with his bizarre efforts to pick a fight on paying for Fluke’s birth control or on refusing to enforce immigration law. It would take a terribly destructive October Surprise to boost Obama’s image . . . I’m glad I live nowhere near NYC.

When the Liar-In-Chief has to go out and beg his supporters to give up their gift giving and instead send him money, I am thinking there is a whole lot of trouble brewing for the black jesus and his RAT party. Conservatives are energized and every new nail the clown puts into the Constitution coffin just energizes conservatives even more. I have not been flying my US flag much since he came into office other than on July 4th. But my flag pole is ready in the garage to be planted with Old Glory and the Gadsden flag on Monday if SCOTUS rules to knock out Ocommiecare and allows our AZ SB 1070 to be fully implemented. I am praying both announcements will be positive and will come on the same day - AZ Libtard heads will explode.

On paper. But the same people who strongly disapprove will vote for him because "he's a nice guy and is doing a good job."

Romney isn't just weak. His record in office would make any liberal Democrat proud, and that has severely dampened support for him on the right.

If Romney were merely a moderate, he'd already be cruising double digits ahead of Obama. The stars were perfectly aligned for us to nominate a Reagan conservative in 2012, but we got a faux Republican instead. There's just not that much enthusiasm for the guy.

The stars are perfectly aligned for conservatives and non-conservatives who resent the ever-creeping stranglehold of government control over their lives, to take advantage of the weaknesses in BOTH candidates.

Risk is the price you pay for opportunity. There are many conservatives who loathe Romney but would risk him for the opportunity later "hold his feet to the fire." It is a very bad risk, as Romney would have the backing of lilly-livered moderate Republicans and Democrats when he moved to enact global warming legislation, pro-homosexual legislation, government-controlled health care, and when he nominated leftist judges. Conservative "fire" would be doused.

That would be magnified ten-fold if Romney won in a landslide with what would be interpreted as a popular mandate for his "progressive governing style." A landslide Romney win would be very dangerous, and risking it is crazy.

The odds of Obama winning on a landslide are virtually nil; many of the folks who voted for him last time will either not vote, or they will vote third party. Obama is dangerous and openly (as opposed to covertly, like Romney) holds the Constitution in contempt. But Congress is powerful and as conservatives and Republicans become dominant in Congress, that body in our system of government has the means of preventing Obama from advancing his agenda.

There are those so terrified of Obama -- as Linda Frances put it, "their fear is palpable" to the point of giving him power -- that they would vote for Romney, whose entire record is one of trampling ALL of the conservative basics they've been voting Republican to uphold. Would they, I wonder, vote for Ron Paul if he'd gotten the nomination, or would they, as they see it now, do the equivalent of "voting for Obama" by NOT voting for the Republican nominee? I have to wonder -- how far is too far?

Obama's chances of a landslide win are nil; Romney's chances of one are very real. Either way, America will end up with a liberal, statist, government-happy authoritarian. THE STARS ARE ALIGNED for conservatives and non-conservatives who are just sick of government nanny-staters to vote ON RECORD as opposing both the bastards, even knowing they'll get one or the other. BUT THE STARS ARE ALIGNED that if one in three said "to hell with both of them" and voted third party, the next president would get only a little more than a third of the popular vote. If that president was Obama, he would be a mockery and moderate Republicans in Congress would move hard-right after seeing Romney kicked to the curb.

The same would hold true to a lesser degree if Romney won.

There is an opportunity here to avert the disaster of a Romney landslide as well as an Obama mandate. This is one of the few election years ever where voting third party, even when that third-party vote isn't coalesced around a Perot-type candidate, is the smartest way to vote FOR CONSERVATIVES.

It is materially impossible to vote "against" a candidate. It is not a thumbs-up-or-down kind of vote. Those who vote for Romney may tell themselves that they're voting "against" Obama, but the cold reality is that they would be voting FOR turning the Republican party hard left, giving that their sanction and consent in voting for Romney, whether they meant to or not.

Obama's low standing in the polls makes it smarter than ever to vote third pary if Obama's opponent is Romney. As Windflier put it in another post, DENY THE WINNER A MANDATE, becaue either winner is bad news.

One of the things that people are awfully tired of hearing is that this is his predecessor’s fault. That worked in the first few months, but in excess of 3-1/2 years later, only the most die-hard, unwavering O-Vomit supporters ae buying this line of crap. You’ve had more than three years of your policies, and they ain’t working. You promised, America gave you the job and a rubber stamp congress and all we have left to show is a trillion dollar bill.

Also, look at the total vs. “strongly” splits in the polling numbers. Only a nine percent split between total disapprove and strongly disapprove—meaning that only 9 percent of that 45 percent only “somewhat” disapprove.

The split is mush wider in approval—21% “only” somewhat approve. This means that the negative feelings are far more intense than the positive ones. Most people who disapprive do so strongly, while those approving are far more likely—by 12 points—to be tepid about it.

O’Vomitcare’s final judgement by SCOTUS this week will also be telling. The certerpiece is the indivisual mandate—which is likely to be shot down. What does it tell you about the legislation if its central pivot point is forcing people to participate in it? A decent piece of legislation would not need to force participation: People would WANT to do so.

The messiah’s plunge in populatiry this week also coincides with his assertion of ‘executive privilege” to save Eric Holder’s bacon. If there’s nothing to hide, Barry, let the document out into the light. American wasn’t fooled on that one. His boy is in trouble, can’t save his own butt, so the hero comes riding in on his steed and recues the attorney general from having to—horrors—TELL THE TRUTH!! Obviously, O’Vomit wants to avoid truth telling at all costs. If you’ve done something illegal, that would be the logical response, efter all.

From the White House’s own web site comes the following: “My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration.”

Two things here. First, almost everything he;s done is opposite of this “directive”. Expecially the health care legislation, which broke his promise to allow th American public three days to read and digest legislation becure he signed it.

Second, notice how he leads with the most important word in his little world. “My”.

Vote accordingly.

Awesome observation, Finny. That critical fact is at the core of what I've been trying to get across to terrified conservatives for months now.

The degraded and decrepit beings in the GOPe have already sold out any Republican (or conservative) principles they might once have held, and are now brazenly putting their considerable muscle and backing behind a candidate who represents THEM.

They well understand that they're maneuvering conservatives into a position to abandon their own principles as well, and to join them in their degradation. They are asking us to violate our own personal codes of honor, and to part with the most valuable thing that any of us has: our personal integrity.

If they can just get us to throw that away, they will have assured our final melding with the leftist Borg.

And the June BLS Unemployment Report could be another nail in the coffin.

Unemployment ticked up in May to 8.2%. That is one data point.

If it goes up again in June, that is a trend.

Will it?

I'm betting 5 to 3 that the BLS makes a big upward revision in the previous week's number and we see the claims number go "down", or at the least, stay the same. Might have to kick another 400k or so out of the job force, too.

Numbers don't lie, but fascists do.

There is no way Obama can win without a complete disintegration of the Romney campaign. That's not going to happen. So, the only hope he has is to so thoroughly demonize Romney that not all the undecideds break away to Romney. Problem there is Romney and the GOP is raising money at a crazy, breathtaking pace. They will be able to combat the assault and staunch it.

I expect that in the next few months Obama will "come of the rails" -- it will be interesting to watch. He has all the characteristics of Carter in reacting to a souring electorate. It is their fault, not his, and if he can just get them to understand his preachy, condescending message, they would realize the error of their ways and support him.

Pass the popcorn...
