  • Gallup: Obamacare popularity in free fall, reaches lowest rating in poll’s history

    Just after President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, the health care reform law which bears his name as its sobriquet was, according to Gallup, at least somewhat popular. GallupÂ’s findings in November, 2012, bucked a trend wherein the majority of pollsters determined that the law was still unpopular. The Real Clear Politics average of polls in this month found the Affordable Care Act was underwater by 5.4 points, but GallupÂ’s results showed the ACA rebounding to 3 points above water with 48 percent approving of the law and only 45 percent disapproving. That popularity boost did not last...
  • Gallup: GOP Congress More Popular Than Obama

    Not soon after his media-enabled reelection, when President Obama's poll numbers almost immediately began to crater, the media narrative shifted to the steady drumbeat of, "But the approval rating for Congress is much lower." That spin was obviously directed at Republicans, who controlled Congress. Although "congress" can mean both the Democrat-controlled Senate and the House, this was a nifty rhetorical trick the media used to argue that the GOP was in worse shape than Obama. That lie was not only laid bare in last week's midterm elections, where Republicans at every level of government crushed Democrats (and their media cheerleaders)...

    Most African American youths believe President Barack Obama is a "deadbeat" leader, says Paul McKinley, a member of Voices of the Ex-Offender, a grassroots group of former inmates. "Every time they question the president about the black community, he's apologetic or embarrassed. Half of the time, I would say 97 percent of the time, he doesn't even want to say the black community exists," McKinley said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "A lot of the young people are seeing this double standard that the president has." McKinley says black Americans have identified with the Democratic Party...

    It was pretty ugly back in 2006. War fatigue and the sharp political divisions over Operation Iraqi Freedom combined with residual fallout over the federal response to Hurricane Katrina. President Bush’s popularity had steadily declined, partly also due to his base’s disgust with him pushing amnesty for illegal aliens. He watched his Grand Old Party get massacred at the polls, losing control of both houses of congress in the mid-term elections that November. Democrats were elated. The preceding several years of humiliation and defeat were over, and they sensed their continuing resurgence. Sure enough, they parlayed their catbird seat all...

    Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown told the New York Times that the best and only place for Democrats to deploy President Barack Obama heading into the midterm elections is with black voters. "I'd have Obama on an evangelistic schedule of black churches all over the country," said Brown. "I think he really should go to the black base. I don't think there's any other place I would trust he wouldn't create an adverse reaction rather than a positive reaction."

    Iowa is where it all started for President Obama. It's where he won twice in a general election. But he's no longer Mr. Popular there. Obama's average approval rating in Iowa was 38 percent during the first half of the year, according to new data from Gallup, five percentage points below his national average. Since notching a second straight win there in 2012, Obama's numbers have gone steadily downhill, as the following Gallup chart shows... What's also notable is that throughout his first term, Obama's numbers in Iowa were mostly stronger than they were nationwide. That hasn't been the case...

    Barack Obama is not a huge fan of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In 2011 Obama reportedly whined to then French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, “You’re tired of him; what about me? I have to deal with him every day.” Israel National News reported: U.S. President Barack Obama opined in a New York Times interview that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is too popular at the moment to make territorial compromises with the Palestinian Authority.

    The recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll surely doesn’t bode well for the Obama administration, which promised hope and change on a platter back in 2008. Seventy-one percent of Americans feels that the country is going in the wrong direction. President Obama’s job approval has dropped to 40 percent–and only 42 percent approve of how he’s handling the economy. Approval on foreign policy, an area where this administration polled somewhat strongly, fell to 36 percent among Americans. Regarding the economy, Carol Lee of the Wall Street Journal said earlier this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that “there’s a total...

    Polls which ask voters for their thoughts on how the last election should have shaped up a year or two years after the fact are pretty much meaningless. The latest CNN/ORC survey which asks voters that question is no exception to that rule. Nevertheless, with just 100 days remaining before the midterm elections, this question is an instructive measurement of voter satisfaction with the president. If voters had it to do all over again, 53 percent would support Mitt Romney over the 44 percent who would continue to back Barack Obama. The president’s remaining coalition is what you would...

    Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they'd overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor's bid. That's just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released Sunday, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That's an even larger spread than CNN found in November, when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent.

    According to the poll, which was released Wednesday, the President's approval rating among Americans stands at 42%. That's not great, but it's basically unchanged since March. Only 42% believe that Obama can manage the government effectively. Again, nothing to celebrate, but it's virtually unchanged from the 43% who felt that way in March. The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International from July 18-20, with 1,012 adult Americans questioned by telephone.

    I don’t get it. According to Rasmussen, 47 percent of likely voters approve of the job President Obama is doing. They called Ronald Reagan the Teflon president but the title now belongs to Barack Obama. Nothing sticks to him. Not Fast and Furious, not the trouble associated with ObamaCare, not Benghazi, not the IRS scandal, not the deal for Bergdahl, I’m betting not the border crisis and not anything else, including his less than forceful response to Mr. Putin for Russia’s role in the Malaysian plane disaster.

The same revealed that for the first time since his term began, Americans consider former President George W Bush to have done a better job than President Obama. The poll also provided Obama with some of the worst approval ratings of his presidency, and an overwhelming number of Americans believe the nation would be better off had Mitt Romney won the election of 2012.

    Wow, it’s finally happening. Democrats are catching on and turning on President Obama, at the moment off-the-record, but that won’t last for long if another midterm “shellacking” takes place in early November. Daniel Halper reports in The Weekly Standard. CNN's John King reports that Democrats are privately calling President Obama "detached," "flat footed," and "incompetent." If King is hearing about it, then it isn’t completely private. Maybe “off the record” and “not for attribution,” but not private when a journalist gets wind of it.

    WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama is getting a number of critical report cards on his foreign and domestic policies lately. Here at home, Janet Yellen, in her first monetary policy address as the head of the Federal Reserve Board, said the labor markets were still weak, and that it will likely take two years or more before the U.S. fully recovers from its recession. Ouch. If Yellen's forecast proves right, this means it will have taken Obama's administration nearly eight years to lift our economy out of its long and painful lethargy. She expressed grave concern that the economy's 6.7 percent...

ABC's Diane Sawyer noted that "for the first time in his presidency, a majority of American voters – 52 percent...say President Obama is not honest and trustworthy." Both evening newscasts reported these numbers as they led into their coverage of former President Clinton's recent word of advice to Obama on his health care law – that "the...

    Suddenly, all the shutdown nastiness and intense anti-Republican sentiment seems like a distant memory. Obamacare has been front and center for weeks, and public opinion has adjusted accordingly. Pew produced some very negative data for the president late last week, and now Quinnipiac confirms the undeniable downward trend. One upper-cut to the jaw after the next: (1) President Obama's overall job approval rating is deep underwater at (39/54). It's not pretty across the board: Independents (30/63), women (40/51), Hispanics (41/47), and young voters (36/54). The telling right track vs. wrong track number stands at a miserable (21/78). (2) On issues,...

  • Five years in, Obama and Bush poll numbers nearly identical (Bush one point ahead)

    When President Obama first ran for the White House in 2008, it was with the promise to turn the page on the presidency of George W. Bush. But for all their political differences, it turns out the American public pretty much view the two men in the same light, according to new polling data. In the first week of November in the fifth year of their presidencies, Obama and Bush have nearly identical approval numbers, according to the latest Gallup polling. The Gallup daily tracking poll for November 5th 2013 puts Obama’s approval at 39 percent, with 53 percent disapproving...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 26, 2013 | PAUL BEDARD |
    Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama has put himself in a horrible position with the failed Obamacare website and indefensible spying on foreign allies. "There is no positive spin for the president this week. A weak jobs report and record numbers out of the workforce. “Plus the worst imaginable rollout of a website in the history of website rollouts. Am I correct that the U.S. paid $600 million for [its] Affordable [Care Act] web presence? At least the $400 hammers and $600 toilet seats worked, I presume. “Listening in on German Chancellor...

    In today's edition of polls the media will collectively ignore, a new AP-GFK polls finds that Barack Obama's job approval rating has plummeted to 37%. The President's disapproval rating is up to 53%. There is no good news in this poll for anyone, but if past is prologue, this is the number the media will pretend does not exist as they attempt to manufacture a reality in which only the GOP is in trouble over the shutdown. While the poll shows that 62% blame the GOP for the shutdown and "[a]bout half said Obama or the Democrats in Congress bear...
