Yet he keeps saying things like, "They vote with me." It's like he can't stand being unpopular, to the point that he doesn't care that he's undermining Dems midterm chances in swing states.

I wonder if Obama pines for the days when this thread started and he had a 60% approval or if he just wishes it was January, 2017 already?

Obama's poll numbers will qualify him for the next edition of Profiles in Courage.

The Tea Party will be remembered for their new book, "How To Throw Your Opponent Off A Ledge While Your 'Party' Cheers" by Michael Grimm.

. Pres. Obama's job approval rating sags when compared to NOTHING... but as soon as an EvilBushie opponent is named, his approvals will SOAR in comparison... just how much will depend on who is named...

. And Pres. Obama's Approval Rating will transfer to some extent onto the next Democrat candidate for president... also depending on who is chosen...

Threw Reuters in there because I haven't seen a -19 point spread since the FOX poll of 9/7-9/9.

Rasmussen has it being only a -6 spread.

Not much movement, regardless of what he does. It appears from other polls that Obama's numbers are slipping in "deep blue" states where Democrats are getting discouraged at his leadership. Dem pols would rather have Michele Obama serve school lunches at their events than be seen with the President.

Passerand Maryanne,
After six years of Obama, it's getting pretty desperate to keep blaming either Bush or Clinton. It's like saying the current President is totally ineffective and without any responsibility. Everyone KNOWS that is not the case, but it certainly does raise questions about his effectiveness or lack thereof.

Funny how everyone seems to be hawkish on Syria now. Don't we ever do LONG-RANGE intelligence anymore? It would appear that our foreign policy consists of reacting to whatever other countries do to us and our allies, rather than anything constructively proactive.

Curious about the Russian natural gas dustup with Poland. Do we have anything on that?

Cheney and his sidekick, Bush tried for years to get Bin Laden with 'decisive' words like "Mission Accomplished". What part of his dead body is still elusive to you? Perhaps the GOP will sue Obama or impeach him for exceeding his authority in killing Bin Laden if they take over the Senate and totally lose all Cruz Control???

The only hurtful part is Obama's constant promises and lack of follow-through. I would certainly feel betrayed by him if I were here illegally and could be deported at any time.

Republicans, and everyone else, learned the hard way when Reagan granted amnesty on the understanding that the border would be secured as part of the deal. When that didn't happen, somewhere between eleven and twenty million MORE came to America illegally and had children here. Republicans and most sane people realize that granting amnesty again would have the same result UNLESS THE BORDERS ARE SECURED and immigration laws are enforced. I and most Republicans would agree to a path to citizenship if the border was secure, but like the old adage "Fool me once..." it won't happen without guarantees that rescind the path to citizenship if the border is not secured. No "shame on me" for requiring those guarantees.

"Will delaying Immigration Reform help or hurt his and Dems' numbers?"

Hurtful question. The truth is, it will hurt his numbers but help some key Democrats.

The House Republicans have already lost all support they could possibly lose already because most thoughtful Americans know that they have put their own interests ahead of the country's as opposed to the Senate Republicans.

"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...

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!

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."

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"...
