    Barack Obama’s legacy may be under attack by President Trump — but he still has bragging rights as the most admired man in the world, according to a new Gallup poll. The poll found 17 percent of people questioned named Obama the man they admired most, a drop from 22 percent last year. Trump took second place with 14 percent, while Hillary Clinton was named the most admired woman for the 16th year in a row, with 9 percent of mentions, Gallup found. Obama has now been named the most admired man 10 times in a row, trailing only Dwight...
  • (Vanity) Obama's New 51%.Anyone Smell A Rat?,75% Of Americans Are Mad Or Near Broke!

    And just look at the timing of that poll. And another reason to be wary of the poll. Many credible pollsters do not wanna mess with the Obama Regime by telling the truth. If they reported the actual results, does anyone actually believe that Obama has a 51% approval when most Americans are hurting financially? For all we know, it's probably closer to 38/39%. Did someone warn of all those pollsters to keep it over 50% Or Else!

  • Historic poll: Obama is nearly twice as popular in Cuba as he is in the U.S.

    Barack Obama is a pretty popular guy in Cuba these days. So much so that nearly nine out of 10 Cubans hope he’ll be the first U.S. president to visit their island since Calvin Coolidge did in 1928. A new Bendixen & Amandi Poll for Univision Noticias – Fusion in collaboration with The Washington Post shows that 89 percent of Cubans think the U.S. leader should swing by for a visit now that the two countries are trying to make nice. Obama also enjoys an 80 percent favorability rating on the communist-led island. The poll suggests that Obama is nearly...
  • Working Class Gives Up On Obama, Fears Job Losses [opening for Republican Party]

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | March 10, 2015 | JOHN MERLINE,
    In what could be a significant opening for the Republican Party, working-class Americans have largely abandoned President Obama and rejected his economic policies as they continue to suffer from the historically weak economic recovery, a new analysis of IBD/TIPP Poll data finds. By wide margins, this group is more likely than any other income class to say the country is headed in the wrong direction, the economy is getting worse, and they fear losing their jobs. Just 36% approve of the job that Obama is doing, compared with 43% overall, and vast majorities say his policies haven't helped the middle...
  • Poll: Americans reject Obama's immigration order, want illegals out of schools, jobs

    Despite the media’s gushing over support for President Obama’s executive order on illegal immigrants, a poll just published finds that the public is rejecting his move, with overwhelming majorities demanding that illegal children be barred from schools and illegal adults from jobs. A new Economist/YouGov poll said that the public opposes the president’s order, 45 percent to 38 percent supporting it. In fact, only a majority of Democrats support the president’s action. “The president’s plan for executive action on immigration clearly does not sit well with many Americans. Democrats support the president’s decision to use an executive order to delay...

    With six years down and just two left in which to build a legacy, President Barack Obama has posted his lowest-ever average annual approval rating. A Gallup poll finds that Obama, in the one-year period between Jan. 20, 2014, and Monday, posted an approval average of just 42.6 percent. During their sixth year in office, Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon showed their lowest approval rating as well, with the sixth-year approval rating of every president since 1945 averaging just 45.5 percent, Politico notes. President George W. Bush tapped out the lowest at 37.3 percent, while President Bill...

    President Barack Obama has struggled with sagging approval ratings over the last year, but the commander-in-chief's numbers may have dropped further among active-duty troops. Just 15% of active-duty servicemembers gave Obama a thumbs up in the annual Military Times survey and more than half -- 55% -- say they disapprove of Obama's job as commander-in-chief. Troop morale has slumped during the Obama administration, falling to 56% this year from 91% who were satisfied with their quality of life in 2009.

    For the last nine years, the Military Times newspaper has surveyed an average of 2,300 active-duty service members. Their latest poll has just been released and concludes that “Obama’s popularity — never high to begin with — has crumbled, falling from 35 percent in 2009 to just 15 percent this year, while his disapproval ratings have increased to 55 percent from 40 percent over that time.” Much of the opposition to Obama has come from military members who believe he has been an inconsistent and flawed leader in foreign policy — for example, his 2011 removal of all troops in...

    John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, as well Valerie Jarrett and Barack Obama, should take heed. By a commanding 17 point margin, Americans want Congress to take the lead, according to a new Gallup Poll (hat tip: Bloomberg and Instapundit): Following the midterm election that some have termed a Republican wave, the majority of Americans want the Republicans in Congress -- rather than President Barack Obama -- to have more influence over the direction the country takes in the coming year. This is a switch from early 2012 when a slim plurality, 46%, wanted Obama to prevail in steering the nation....

    Just weeks after President Obama's approval rating hit record lows in the liberal bastion of California, a new survey shows the president in trouble in another deep blue state: New York. Only 39 percent of registered New York voters surveyed in a Marist College poll said Obama is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, the lowest level for Obama in the poll since the beginning of his presidency. Sixty-one percent of survey respondents judged Obama as doing a "fair" or "poor" job in office.

    Fox News panelists A.B. Stoddard and Steve Hayes argued Wednesday that Obama brought on his plummeting approval ratings by giving Americans the impression that he has given up on his job.In a new Quinnipiac poll, Obama came in first as the worst president since World War II.“The president is giving Americans the sense that, as he gives up on Congress, he’s kind of giving up on his job,” The Hill’s Stoddard said. “They know he’s bolting from the building to go to Starbucks and Chipotle. He’s getting bored in the cocoon, he’s planning his post-presidency.”Free Beacon editor Matthew Continetti made...

    with new numbers that are depressing to an already deflated White House, Zogby on Wednesday found that most don't believe that Obama can lead the country and he compared the president to Bill Clinton following the Democrat's sweeping 1994 Congressional loss and when former White House Correspondent Brit Hume asked if Clinton was even relevant. Obama finds himself in the uncomfortable position where every age group, independents, and whites all agree that the public has given up on his ability to accomplish anything before the end of his term,” said Zogby in releasing his latest numbers. “In short, we see...

    When asked a question often discussed with dread at family Thanksgiving dinners, a plurality of voters — 33 percent — believe President Obama (or "Nobummer," amirite?) is the worst president since World War II. In second place on the same question was George W. Bush with 28 percent. These are the numbers you will read in several headlines today. The thing is, the "worst president since World War Two" results aren't really the worst numbers for the president in the Quinnipiac poll from which they're drawn. Let's address the headlines first. In the Quinnipiac poll, Obama finds himself among a...

    Poll after poll shows President Obama’s approval rating dipping recently, and one new Quinnipiac University Poll finds that voters say Mitt Romney would have been a better choice in 2012. With Mr. Obama deploying military troops to Iraq, failing to find compromise with Congress and seeing major defeats in the Supreme Court, voters continue to sour on him. Quinnipiac found 45 percent of voters say the country would have been better off if Mr. Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, had been election, while just 38 percent say Mr. Obama remains a better choice. Even Democrats aren’t so sure — just...

    There's little good news for President Barack Obama or the rest of U.S. government, according to a new Gallup poll. When asked about their confidence in the president, only 29 percent said they had confidence in Obama in his sixth year. That's down 7 percent from last year, and is a 22 percentage point drop from his first year in office. It's also lower than George W. Bush's rating in his sixth year (33 percent) and Bill Clinton (53 percent). It was during Clinton's sixth year in office that he was stuck deep in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

    With the rest of the bad news this week, we’ve missed its impact on the electorate to some extent. Two new national polls this week show Barack Obama’s approval rating sliding back toward historic lows, and the economic news this week might make it even more difficult to reverse the trend. Yesterday, Gallup reported that Obama’s weekly approval rating had skidded to its lowest point in a quarter, coming close to a personal low for his presidency: The situation in Iraq seems to be taking a toll on President Barack Obama’s public standing. His weekly job approval rating is...
