Obama's Gallup Aproval On New Lows

  1. Now, just 45%. If one filters Blacks and Latinos out of the sample his "white only" numbers are around 30%. He's imploding with independents who supported him decisively over McCain. Keep in mind that despite the "race card" rebuttal, Obama ran 3-7 pts ahead of Gore and Kerry among whites. Even if quite a few polled whites opt "disapprove" based on racial prejudice, one can equally assume Obama's +95% with Black respondents is based on race too.
  2. Nothing unusual but its interesting how you try to paint it into something else.

  3. Who is painting it into something else?

    1. Carter wasn't re-elected and I'd compare him-politically speaking-to Obama. Both were elected by an extreme "anti-GOP" backlash and despite both Presiding with decisive Democrat Congressional majorities, neither maintained voter traction after being elected.

    2. Even though Reagan beat Carter handily, most American's in the early 1980's were registered Democrats. Just like today. Hence it didn't take much disappointment with Reagan's economic policies to tank his favorability rankings. Unlike Reagan's first year, when Treasury and stock markets were imploding-Obama's numbers should be improving along with the economy. Why aren't they? Because the economic gains have not been widely distributed and because American's are now more sophisticated when judging deficits as the catalyst of improving economic data. In other words the average voter realizes that being issued a credit card to purchase unaffordable items doesn't improve ones long term economic standing-it only helps one get through today. And as Greece is teaching the World-the mailbox will be delivering a quite finite number of future credit cards.

  5. Yes, but consider how good the numbers would be if one were to filter out the morons...
  6. Hello


    You have a valid point there, if you were to remove all the democrats his approval would be at zero.

    Barack Obama has Awakened a Sleeping Nation

    "Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America's future. He is the best thing ever.

    Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America's resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

    That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America.

    Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

    Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips - they've gotten off the fence. They've woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven't seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

    Think of the crap we've slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and "disabilities." Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage e the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts.

    We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

    But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

    In the time of Barack Obama, Black Panther members stand outside polling places in black commando uniforms, slapping truncheons into their palms. ACORN - a taxpayer-supported organization - is given a role in taking the census, even after its members were caught on tape offering advice to set up child prostitution rings. A former Communist is given a paid government position in the White House as an advisor to the president. Auto companies are taken over by the government, and the auto workers' union - whose contracts are completely insupportable in any economic sense - is rewarded with a stake in the company. Government bails out Wall Street investment bankers and insurance companies, who pay their executives outrageous bonuses as thanks for the public support. Terrorists are read their Miranda rights and given free lawyers. And, despite overwhelming public disapproval, Barack Obama has pushed forward with a health care plan that would re-structure one-sixth of the American economy.

    I don't know about you, but the other day I was at the courthouse doing some business, and I stepped into the court clerk's office and changed my voter affiliation from "Independent" to "Republican." I am under no illusion that the Republican party is perfect, but at least they're starting to awaken to the fact that we cannot sustain massive levels of debt; we cannot afford to hand out billions of dollars in corporate subsidies; we have to somehow trim our massive entitlement programs; we can no longer be the world's policeman and dole out billions in aid to countries whose citizens seek to harm us.

    Literally millions of Americans have had enough. They're organizing, they're studying the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, they're reading history and case law, they're showing up at rallies and meetings, and a slew of conservative candi dates are throwing their hats into the ring. Is there a revolution brewing? Yes, in the sense that there is a keen awareness that our priorities and sensibilities must be radically re-structured. Will it be a violent revolution? No. It will be done through the interpretation of the original document that has guided us for 220 years - the Constitution. Just as the pendulum swung to embrace political correctness and liberalism, there will be a backlash, a complete repudiation of a hundred years of nonsense. A hundred years from now, history will perceive the year 2010 as the time when America got back on the right track. And for that, we can thank Barack Hussein Obama."
  8. Yep..100 years from now we will thank Obama the same way the Jews thank Hitler for getting them Israel back. Or the way Americans thank King George for freeing us from England 200 years ago.

    Obama will go down in history as the weakest most submissive president to all the world leaders, but a menacing tyrant to his own citizens.
  9. Can any Jews confirm?
