Pollster: Do you approve of the job President Obama is doing?

Tea Party (and racists, not NECESSARILY the same) NO!

Pollster: Why do you think he's doing a Bad job?

Tea Party & etc.: Because he's the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT!


Or some other equally vacuous remark. Or, more than likely, a blank & envious stare because the pollster seems more "educated"...

"So, in reality, 43% of respondents are too stupid to know what the definition of 'a good job' is. Most likely because they don't have one to begin with..."

agreed.

Obama Is First As Worst President Since WWII, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; More Voters Say Romney Would Have Been Better

"President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, 33 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Another 28 percent pick President George W. Bush.


Ronald Reagan is the best president since WWII, 35 percent of voters say, with 18 percent for Bill Clinton, 15 percent for John F. Kennedy and 8 percent for Obama, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Among Democrats, 34 percent say Clinton is the best president, with 18 percent each for Obama and Kennedy."
Soon Obama will be listed in most dictionaries...

"The scandal surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs health care system isn’t making Americans feel more confident about ObamaCare, a just released Fox News Poll finds.

Less than a third of voters believes that the government will do a better job with ObamaCare than the VA did managing care for vets (31 percent). Over half believe it won’t (55 percent).

Meanwhile, a majority regrets ObamaCare ever passed, and more voters than not say the country is worse off under the law.

CLICK HERE TO READ THE POLL RESULTS

By a 55-38 percent margin, people wish the Affordable Care Act had never passed and the 2009 system were still in place. That includes a quarter of Democrats (25 percent), a majority of independents (58 percent) and most Republicans (85 percent).

Over half of voters under age 35 (53 percent) along with a majority of those ages 65 and over (58 percent) regret ObamaCare passed.

In addition, by a double-digit margin, more voters say the country is worse off under the new health care law: 44 percent worse off vs. 29 percent better off. Another one voter in four says ObamaCare hasn’t made much of a difference either way (24 percent).

Independents are twice as likely to say we’re worse off under ObamaCare (49 percent worse off vs. 24 percent better off). Almost all Republicans say worse off (72 percent) or no difference (21 percent).

Among Democrats, a 54-percent majority says the country is better off as a result of the law, while 15 percent say worse off and 27 percent say it hasn’t made much of a difference.

Overall, 39 percent of voters approve of the way President Obama is handling health care, down from 43 percent last month.

A 58-percent majority disapproves of Obama’s job performance on health care. That’s near the record-high 61 percent who gave him the thumbs-down in November 2013."

"Kentucky's Democratic Senate Candidate Is Slamming Obama"

Of course. But she will end up being Mitch's worst "NightMare" rather than Obama's. And she will be the one to give Mitch the keys to his Old Kentucky Home. Most Kentuckians know when its time to send one out to pasture. And Mitch will bring a new meaning to the term "The Glue of the Commonwealth"...

After all the left-leaning that the eagle has been doing, it might fly straight! Actually, looking at the poll numbers, losing the Senate is not a definite foregone conclusion. Both sides have ample opportunity to screw up royally over the summer and early fall.

The VA is the only scandal. It precedes 2008 and was exacerbated by all the heroes coming home. The preceding Administration didn't have the problem of the huge influx of soldiers coming home as they were busy sending soldiers TO war and probably tended to think that soldiers returning from war was a cowardly act. The Cheney Macho Administration started wars and never planned for the implications of their actions.

At least Cheney will go down in history as the First Rooster that laid an egg!

Yup. We need a multi-party system, cause the s0-called two party, Dem/Rep parties are one and the same.....all crooks. Both are controlled by the Political/international banking cartel, and not by We The People. That is why the dems and repubs hate the Tea party and other third parties, because their control is diluted.

Latest (May 14) Gallup Poll Obama Job Approval:

48% disapprove, 46% Approve

Margin of Error + or - 3pts

Virtual tie. Seems Rove had another "Ohio Meltdown" (which got him fired from Fox) and insinuated that Hillary's bump on her head from a fall a while ago was comparable to mental illness. Now Reagan talking to his plants and his actual Dementia in his latter days in Office did not so "concern" Rove. Similar bites from Mad GOP Political attack dogs will only show the American People's own concern with those dogs' rabies...

"A nationwide USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll shows the strongest tilt to Republican candidates at this point in a midterm year in at least two decades, including before partisan "waves" in 1994 and 2010 that swept the GOP into power. Though Election Day is six months away — a lifetime in politics — at the moment, Democrats are saddled by angst over the economy, skepticism about the health care law and tepid approval of the president.

"People should start opening their eyes and seeing we're not on track," says Brenna Collins, 32, a small-business owner from Kasson, Minn., who was among those surveyed. "Not exactly saying Republicans are right but that things need to change."

By more than 2-1, 65%-30%, Americans say they want the president elected in 2016 to pursue different policies and programs than the Obama administration, rather than similar ones.

In the 2014 elections, registered voters are inclined to support the Republican candidate over the Democrat in their congressional district by 47%-43%. That 4-percentage-point edge may seem small, but it's notable because Democrats traditionally fare better among registered voters than they do among those who actually cast ballots, especially in low-turnout midterms."link to source

"This thread needs to be locked,..." It was true, the "lies" were the False Witness many Conservatives used against the president, like "thinking" he is Kenyan and calling him a "subhuman Mongrel".

Betcha didn't complain about that because you still "think" it is the truth!

goldseeker,
Did you notice WHEN this thread was started? Obama's poll numbers WERE that high at one point three years ago. This thread has tracked the descent since then, and always has been appropriately active. However, the OP title has become somewhat of a thorn in the side of Obama supporters as they deal with the general disappointment in the President.

A big three-year anniversary poll roundup is planned for next weekend. Bring your favorite burger and beverage!

"Gallup recently found that Barack Obama’s job-approval erosion had paused, but the White House gets worse news today in the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll. Obama’s job approval hit a new low, his issues approval ratings are cratering, and voters are looking to the GOP for answers as the midterm cycle approaches:


Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.

That is Obama’s worst job approval rating in his presidency in this series. Last November, he hit 42/55, a wider spread, but 41% is a new nadir on approval alone. His economy number was slightly worse in November as well, but the 42/54 today is among the lowest of his presidency, too.

It’s also clear that the happy talk about the supposed eight million enrollments in ObamaCare didn’t stick. In March, Obama’s approval on ObamaCare implementation rebounded to 44/54 from its November low of 33/63. A few weeks later, Obama’s back to 37/57, with the “stronglys” at 24/46. And Obama’s electoral advice to Democrats, urging them to run on ObamaCare? Er …


The Post-ABC poll found that 44 percent say they support the law while 48 percent say they oppose it, which is about where it was at the end of last year and in January. Half of all Americans also say they think implementation is worse than expected.

Last month, a Post-ABC poll found 49 percent of Americans saying they supported the new law compared with 48 percent who opposed it. That finding was more positive for the administration than most other polls at the time. Democrats saw it as a possible leading indicator of a shift in public opinion, but that has not materialized.

A 58 percent majority say the new law is causing higher costs overall, and 47 percent say it will make the health-care system worse. While a majority say the quality of the health care they receive will remain the same, a plurality expect it to result in higher personal costs for that care.

There ins’t much to like in those numbers for incumbent Democrats. The news is worse among independents, where support for ObamaCare is only 39/54. They rate his overall job performance even lower, 33/59, and on the economy it’s 34/61. The only reason Obama scores as high as he does in this poll is because of overwhelming support from Democrats — and that’s not going to save people not named Barack Obama on midterm ballots."link to source

"Passer, tell us why you are against the Keystone XL Pipeline."

Again, A1, you post false witness. I am not against the pipeline (and that is off topic here). If you go to its topic, all that I said is that the evidence is incomplete. The topic is foolishly titled "Fracking Doesn't Pose Health Risks". I know many Conservatives can't tell the difference between Opinion and Fact (that was a fifth grade unit in school) but the topic is titled like it was a fact.

In spite of what you want to believe, the title is only opinion, NOT fact and that was my argument. Conservatives these days, mistake their wishes for facts. On a National Level, that's why they tend to be losers.

Again, for those who have a bad fault of trying to make anyone they disagree with out as monsters, (ie extreme Conservatives):

I am not against the pipeline.

However, in the future, it MIGHT tend to have health risks that we are not aware of now.

I do, condemn your False Witness for political purposes though. Teacher Tim has never stooped that low and though I often disagree with him, I do have respect for him because he is honest!
