LMAO,
You guys are arguing with yourselves, or with someone else, but not me.
I've only posted poll numbers here.

Um, actually, Obama is half-Jewish...

And raised a Muslim. And claims to be a Christian.

Sounds like religiously, he's just like he is politically.

Voting "present" and completely undecided about anything...

"rac·ism

the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior."Passer, sure seems to me that the definition, is appropriate from Teacher TIm...

Of course, they can always turn on him now, cause he is half white...

It's 93%, not 98%.

Fifty nine percent of whites votes for Romney. They voted for him because of his skin color, right?

Seventy one percent of Hispanics and 73% of Asians voted for Obama. They voted for him because of his skin color, right?

"Thirdly, since 98% of blacks voted for Obama, doesn't that make them racist. They voted for him because of the color of his skin, right?"

You don't seem to understand racism,tt. The first Democrat or Republican candidate who is Jewish will probably have over 95% of the Jewish vote. THAT DOES NOT MAKE THEM RACISTS! If a Christian believed that Jews used Christian blood as part of their Jewish ritual, THAT would make the "Christian" racist.

The Right has a lot of trouble understanding the difference between the two examples above, but to over simplify it, the former was something positive. Jews (or Blacks, or anyone for that matter) tend to be overly proud at the chance to vote for someone of their heritage if, in the past, they were discriminated against in the past (especially if they were brought to this country in bondage -- which did not violate your bible, in fact, quite the contrary, it was Biblical to have slaves).

So voting for Obama by Blacks is not "racism" (except to the uninformed and the Tea Party, but I repeat myself...). Having police of YOUR (and my) race, shoot blacks when they probably wouldn't have shot a white in the same situation IS!

In another one hundred years you will understand that. The younger generation, already does!

First of all, he is half white and half black, not black.

Secondly, are you attributing his failures to the color of his skin?

Thirdly, since 98% of blacks voted for Obama, doesn't that make them racist. They voted for him because of the color of his skin, right?

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.

Latest (May 14) Gallup Poll Obama Job Approval:

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

Holy Toledo, that LATimes link, Buzz was exceptional.

"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!
