    Inside Gov ^ | 8-13-2015 | Alex Greer
    As of July 2015, President Obama’s public approval rating was 44%, down significantly from his starting approval of 62%. To be fair, Obama still has around a year left in office, so his approval rating is far from final. But few presidents leave the White House more popular than when they entered. So how does Obama stack up to the modern presidents when it comes to popularity? Using data from Real Clear Politics and the Roper Center, InsideGov found the average approval ratings for the modern U.S. presidents (FDR onward). We also provide an overall breakdown of each president’s approval...

    Other than her last name and big donors, the only advantage Hillary has is her gender. Some Americans will vote for her only because they want to see the first woman President in our history It is now crystal clear to any objective observer; Hillary Clinton is a horrible candidate. As Americans get to know Hillary, they like her less. In the latest Associated Press-GFK poll, Hillary scores an abysmal 39% approval rating, compared to an unfavorable rating of 49%. In the three months since Hillary launched her campaign, her numbers have dropped dramatically. Back in April, Clinton had a...
  • Obama approval rating sinks: a self-inflicted wound?

    Yahoo! News ^ | 11/1/13 | Linda Feldmann - CSM
    President Obama often blames Republicans for taking America from crisis to crisis. Fiscal cliff! Government shutdown! Near default! But self-inflicted wounds can be the most painful of all. And in the spirit of President Harry Buck Stops Here Truman, Mr. Obama may have no one but himself to blame for the botched rollout of HealthCare.gov, the website whose proper functioning is key to the success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the signature initiative of Obamas presidency. Presidential scholars are baffled that someone whose legacy rests on the success of the ACA reinforced by a nickname, "Obamacare," that includes...

    After the federal government shutdown for 21 days from mid-December 1995 to early January 1996, the percentage of Americans who said they approved of the job Congress was doing increased, according to the Gallup poll. At the same time, the percentage of Americans who said they approved of the job then-President Bill Clinton was doing remained the same, and the percentage who said they approved of the job then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich was doing dropped by only two points. The government shutdown from Dec. 16, 1995 to Jan. 6, 1996, occurred when the Republican-controlled House of Representatives was trying to...

    Last week was a pretty good one for Mitt Romney. He moved ahead of Rick Santorum in the polls in Wisconsin. His lead in national polls of Republicans increased as well. And he continued to get prominent endorsements from star conservatives like Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, indicating a party moving in his direction. But despite all this encouraging news, there was a cloud on Romneys horizon: his terrible approval ratings. How terrible? According to a new ABC News-Washington Post survey, only 34 percent of Americans view Romney favorably (the lowest for any leading presidential candidate in ABC/Post polls in...

    PRINCETON, NJ -- President Obama's average job approval rating for the month of February in Gallup Daily tracking was 45%, with 47% disapproving, unchanged from January. Obama's job approval in February exceeds the lows seen last summer, when his monthly approval rating dipped to 41% from August through October. That followed a slide from 50% in May after the successful U.S. military mission in Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden. However, despite the recent improvement in his score, it has yet to recover to the level seen at the start of 2011, when 49% approved and 43% disapproved. Apart from...

With his approval rating sitting at an all-time low of 40 per cent amidst the debt crisis, tens of thousands of Americans unfollwed the President to avoid the deulge.

    An article in the Washington Post, entitled, "Bin Laden death helps Obama reposition in Virginia" attempts to calculate the impact of Osama Bin Laden's assassination on Virginian's perception of Obama. A random cell/home phone survey was conducted before and after Obama's announcement on Sunday, May 1st. Respondents were asked 34 questions that related to both Virginia State politics and National races. The polling data showed that Obama's approval rating increased by 8% when compared to results of the same survey conducted before the assassination. They also showed that Obama stretched his lead against the top five potential Republican Candidates. Unfortunately,...

    The Washington Post and ABC News have published their latest poll, and try as they might, they still have bad news for Barack Obama. The President has lost seven points off of their poorly-sampled approval rating from January with the latest even-more-poorly-sampled survey today. Despite giving Obama a ten-point advantage, he drops to 47% approval and hits new lows on the economy: Deepening economic pessimism has pushed down President Obama’s approval rating to a near record low, but he holds an early advantage over prospective 2012 rivals in part because of widespread dissatisfaction with Republican candidates, according to a new...

    Barack Obama presumably hoped for a bounce from Wednesday’s budget-reform speech, but thus far he’s only received the dead-cat variety at Gallup. Their daily three-day tracking poll includes one day each before and after the speech, and Obama went from 46/46 in last weekend’s surveys to 41/50 in their release today. The Los Angeles Times notes the drop in support: It could be gas prices, the budget debate, or simply the usual ups and downs of public opinion polling. But President Obama’s approval rating has dipped to a five-month low in Gallup’s daily tracking poll, reverting to post-midterm election lows.The...

    After a brief resurgence earlier this year, President Obama's poll numbers are back in the dumps. A new Quinnipiac Poll released Wednesday finds Obama's approval rating at the lowest point in his presidency, thanks in part to voter angst over the economy and his handling of the situation in Libya. Just 42 percent of those polled approve of the job Obama is doing, compared to 48 percent who disapprove, according to Quinnipiac. And in a bad sign for his upcoming 2012 re-election campaign, 50 percent of those polled say he doesn't deserve another term in the White House. In January,...

    As if the poll showing improved approval of Congress under partial Republican leadership wasn't discouraging enough, now comes a new survey showing President Obama's second-year job approval near the bottom of presidents elected in the last six decades or so. Heading into the president's crucial 2011 State of the Union address next Tuesday evening, Gallup finds that Obama's second-year job approval averaged only 46.7%. That really looks pathetic when compared to his predecessor, George W. Bush's second-year average job approval of 71.3%. Or to the next highest second-year postwar job approval of 66.8% held by -- oh, look! -- another...

It’s the first time in eight months that Obama has had a positive approval gap, since May’s 48/45. However, as the WSJ reports, the survey took place in the immediate aftermath of the Tucson shooting and memorial, which may make this rise transitory: Surges in presidential popularity are common after a galvanizing national tragedy, said Bill McInturff, a Republican pollster who co-directs the Journal/NBC News poll with Democrat...

    The Chris Christie bandwagon may have hit a speed bump - at least a small one - based on results from two new polls released today. The polls, from Quinnipiac and Rutgers-Eagleton, show Christie's approval rating in New Jersey slipping a bit, with significant majorities skeptical that he'd make a good president or vice-president. The polling shows that Christie is one of the most polarizing governors in recent New Jersey history, with more voters holding both a very favorable view of him and an extremely negative view. The slippage comes as his national profile continues to rise (his "60...

    Back in April of last year, when Obama's approval rating was at 61%, we ran a piece about the effect of the president's approval rating on the midterm election results (yeah, we were thinking about the midterms that early). The statistics show that just to avoid losing seats, a president needs a 65% approval rating. So with 61%, Obama was already headed for losses at that time. According to RCP, Obama currently has a 61% approval rating, and it's falling, with the most recent three polls in the high 50's. That puts The One in Bush (1990), Nixon (1970), and...

    According to a new Pew Research poll Americans are not happy, Jimmy Carter Might call it malaise. We don't like the way things are going maybe because the economy as the same poll says that 90% of Americans are not happy with the economy and two thirds feel that their personal finances are in the dumps. We don't like the way the Afghan war is going, we blame the President, and we still don't want our health care controlled by the government. Put it all together it and American sentiment is anti-Incumbent, we want to throw the bums out. All...

    Psst. Don't tell anybody, but Republicans would win control of Congress if the election were now, instead of next year. It's sure to remain the biggest political secret not in the news. Naturally, the media will ignore it; the polling company that produced the survey, Gallup, even buried it under a misleading headline. Maybe, to get some coverage, the Republicans could claim to have hidden somebody in a weather balloon, or something. The congressional election prediction is part of a one-two punch Gallup delivered Barack Obama's Chicago mob on Tuesday, albeit reluctantly.

    With massively failed economic policies, high unemployment, attempts to destroy the best health care in the world, and an absolute inability to perform as Commander-in-Chief to the nations armed forces, Barack Obama is seeing an historic slide in his approval ratings. Both Rasmussen and Gallup have polls out this week showing that Barack Obama has lost favor with the American people.

    The decline in Barack Obama's popularity since July has been the steepest of any president at the same stage of his first term for more than 50 years. Gallup recorded an average daily approval rating of 53 per cent for Mr Obama for the third quarter of the year, a sharp drop from the 62 per cent he recorded from April. His current approval rating hovering just above the level that would make re-election an uphill struggle is close to the bottom for newly-elected president. Mr Obama entered the White House with a soaring 78 per cent approval...

    Falling like a stone is an understatement. Stick with me on this because this isn't just another, 'hey look at this poll' situation. We are very rapidly approaching the utter collapse in support, which is one more sign the Democrats should be very afraid of the midterms.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) A majority of independent voters disapprove of how Barack Obama's handling his job as president, according to a new national poll. Fifty-three percent of independents questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday say they disapprove of how Obama's handling his duties in the White House, with 43 percent in approval. That result marks the first time in a CNN poll that a majority of independents give the president's performance a thumbs-down. Obama's overall approval rating of 53 percent is down 3 points from a month ago, and down 8 points from June. Forty-five percent of...

    He's 8 months in and Gallup has The One at 51% approval, the lowest of his presidency. All those stories you have read in the MSM about the record-breaking drop in popularity . . . oh wait, there haven't been any of those . . ., well you've been hearing it here, and they are true. In fact, at the rate he's going, we can probably look forward to Christmas books entitled, "The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama." Are we looking at the makings of the worst president in history? They have to start somewhere.

    Washington, DC -- More national polls are showing that pro-abortion President Barack Obama is hitting new low approval ratings. The polls come at a time when Obama's health care plan, which contains abortion funding and coverage as well as rationing, is the subject of fierce opposition from most Americans. http://www.lifenews.com/nat5384.html

    And the hits just keep on coming. Pew is the bearer of good news. Take your pick. You want to see the crash and burn trajectory of the support for the Democrats? They've got that. How about our silver-tongued president? Perhaps his hypnotic powers of persuasion are leading the masses to a Socialist utopia? Uh, not so much.
