Obama’s Job Approval Numbers are In, and it Doesn’t Look Good
April 29, 2014 By Jennifer Burke

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll has been released and it doesn’t look good for Barack Obama. He is not only experiencing the lowest approval ratings on job performance since the beginning of his presidency, but even more Americans also believe that the country is headed in the wrong direction under his leadership.

According to the poll, 52% of Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job as president. An even higher percentage, 54%, disapproves of how he is handling the economy. In regards to the implementation of his signature legislation, Obamacare, 57% disapprove of how he is handling it.

Even more disconcerting for Obama is that fewer Americans trust him in finding the right balance between cutting government spending that is not needed versus continuing the spending that is. Among the respondents, 38% trusted Obama in this area whereas 45% trusted Republicans in Congress.

Americans also have a negative view of the economy under Obama with 71% describing economic conditions as ‘not so good’ or ‘poor.’ When asked if they believed the country was headed in the right or wrong direction, 66% said they believe the country is seriously headed down the wrong track.

While Obama has strongly encouraged Democrats campaigning for this year’s mid-term elections to embrace Obamacare and campaign on it, poll results show that such a move could spell disaster. With 48% opposing the changes that Obamacare has made to the health care system, such campaigning may be detrimental.

The poll took place by random sampling with 1,000 adults called April 24-27, 2014. The results have a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points. Although there was a random sampling taken, 32% of all respondents were Democrats compared to 21% Republican.

You know what's funny?   Obama is at a pathetic 43% approval rating today.

At this point in 2004, he was at a pathetic 44%. 

Ya gotta be honest here... He probably would win another term as POTUS if he could run in 2016.  After all the bitching, all the protesting, all the 7 years of dissing him on talk radio leading back to when he started campaigning, the horrible job he's done, the monthly "tax" known as obamacare...

After all that, he'd still probably win again.   Face it, the majority of americans WANT a lib socialist prez.

No. He would not win again. Even his base now is moving away from him. Even within his party, some are realizing how stupid he really is and on top of that people would rather replace him with another socialist pig.

But even if you happened to be right, which would be a miracle, he would still get nothing done. He hasn't achieved anything that benefited the country or that is memorable.

The only thing he got done was crapcare and that was with a democrat dominated Congress and that legislation has shown to be a failure. Sign ups don't mean jack. The evidence of that is in the approval numbers. If the law was so great, WHY HAVEN'T THE APPROVAL NUMBERS FOR THE JOKEINTHEWHITEHOUSE IMPROVED?

I don't think alot of people really realize just how much damage Obama has done to the Democratic party.

Okay granted the guy did win the 2008 and 2012 Presidency. And that means a ton, sure. He was able to get out people to vote twice for 2 highly publicized elections.

But look at the ripple effects. He took a Democratic Senate, I think 57, 58 seats and one point and likely turned it into 51, 52 Republican this November with a House that will likely either maintain its advantage or go even more right.

BUT BEYOND THAT, Democrats are getting TROUNCED, and will be getting trounced on the State, local level all over the country for at least a few more years to come. Real positions of power, with influence in peoples everyday life... Governors, State Senators, District Attorneys, Commissioners, Judges. As we've seen these States can make life very difficult for a President if they wield the power to do so.

And I cant think of one reason for this drubbing more than Barrack Obama.

So basically the U.S. elected a guy who had power for 2 years. Still somewhat relevant for a couple more then post 2012 is nothing more than a joke, the world over with almost zero power.

In 4 years, he's gone down ONE point in the approval ratings.

I'm not saying he's awesome, i'm asking who would beat him in 2016?   Hilary will be 71?  No way she could do it.  Especially because she's essentially the same on every position now.

Which repub would be able to stand up and say "I have more experience and skill than you, Obama!"

Rand?  Christie? 
Seriously, it sucks to face it, but Bill Clinton probably could have won a 3rd term easily too.  Reagan sure would have.  And in 4 years of constant hammering, Obama is just about where he was 4 years ago.  Crazy to realize that.

Correct.  But my point is, his approval is about where it was 4 years ago, when he was about to get his clock cleaned in mid-terms... and all we could talk about was how bad he was going to lose in 2012.

All the BS he did in the past 4 years... and barely 1 in 100 people shifted negative on him.  44% to 43%.   Unreal.

CNN Poll: Public upset over VA scandal; Obama remains at 43%
Posted by
CNN Political Unit

Washington (CNN) - Nearly six in ten Americans give President Barack Obama a thumbs-down on how he is handling the Veterans Affairs controversy, according to a new national poll.

But a CNN/ORC International survey released Tuesday indicates that the scandal at VA hospitals doesn't seem to be affecting the President's overall approval rating, which remains at 43%, identical to the last CNN poll conducted a month ago. The survey also indicates that Obama scores some of his highest numbers on the environment and terrorism, two other issues in the spotlight this week.

Read the full CNN/ORC International poll results

According to the poll, 58% say they disapprove of how the President's handling the VA scandal, with 37% saying they approve of Obama's actions.

The Veterans Affairs controversy has mushroomed since CNN first reported last November on allegations of alarming shortcomings within the VA medical care system that potentially have had deadly consequences in dozens of cases.

The most disturbing and striking problems emerged in Arizona last month, with sources revealing to CNN details of a secret waiting list for treatment. According to the sources, at least 40 veterans died while waiting for care at the Phoenix, Arizona, VA medical center.

Key races to watch in 2014

Republican calls for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign grew over the past month, and after the release last week of a damaging preliminary report from the VA's inspector general's office, a bunch of congressional Democrats also said it was time for Shinseki to step down. On Friday, the President announced that the secretary had handed in his resignation.

Nearly seven in ten agreed with Shinseki's move to resign, with 22% saying the embattled secretary shouldn't have stepped down. And nearly half questioned said the scandal made them angry, with another fifth saying it made them upset.

Obama's overall approval rating stands at 43%, with 55% saying they disapprove of the job he is doing in the White House.

Related: New low for Obama in key midterm indicator

"Obama's approval rating has not budged since March, when it hit 43%. That's par for the course for the President, whose job approval numbers have been stuck in the mid-to-low 40s for nearly a year," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

"The President doesn't get a majority approving of his track record on any of the 12 issues tested in our poll, but his highest scores come on terrorism and environmental policy, with 49% approving of how he is handling both of those issues," Holland added.

It should be noted that most interviews in the poll were conducted before any news broke of the controversial transfer of five terror prisoners from the U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in exchange for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive in Afghanistan by the Taliban for five years. And the survey was conducted mostly before news of Monday's announcement by the Environmental Protection Agency to dramatically limit carbon pollution.

"Given the administration's emphasis on environmental policy this week, it's worth noting that the number of Americans who say that the environment is the top issue has quadrupled since last year," added Holland. "But only 8% today name the environment as their top concern."

That puts the issue a distant fourth behind economic matters (40%), health care (19%), and the deficit (15%). According to the poll, more than six in ten disapprove of how the President's handling those three issues.

The poll was conducted for CNN by ORC International from May 29 to June 1, with 1,003 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.

Poll: Obama worst president since WWII
The Hill ^  | July 2, 2014 | Justin Sink with Peter Sullivan

Posted on ‎7‎/‎2‎/‎2014‎ ‎8‎:‎23‎:‎22‎ ‎AM by Cincinatus' Wife

President Obama is the worst president since World War II, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.

The poll finds that 33 percent of voters say Obama is the worst since the war, with George W. Bush trailing in second place at 28 percent.
The only other president in double digits, at 13 percent, is Richard Nixon, who resigned from office after the Watergate scandal.

The results raise the possibility that voters are choosing the presidents who are freshest in their memory. Or they could just think that this century has produced historically bad presidents.

Obama ran in 2008 as a change from the deeply unpopular Bush, but the poll finds that in a head-to-head matchup, more voters now think Obama is a worse president than Bush. Forty percent say Obama is worse than Bush, while 39 percent say he is better.

Obama won his 2012 reelection with a healthy 4-percentage-point margin over Mitt Romney in the national popular vote, but voters are now feeling some regret on that choice. Forty-five percent say the country would be better off if Romney had won, compared to 38 percent who say it would be worse.

That includes 10 percent of Democrats and 47 percent of independents who say they now wish the Republican nominee had won.

"Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.

"Would Mitt have been a better fit? More voters in hindsight say yes."

Following the healthcare.gov rollout, failures at Veterans Affairs and other problems, voters say the Obama administration is not competent to run the government, 54 to 44 percent.

The president is in negative territory on a slew of key issues, from the economy (40 percent approve) to foreign policy (37 percent) and healthcare (40 percent) to terrorism (44 percent).

The one issue area where Obama gets positive marks is the environment, where voters approve of Obama’s handling, 50 to 40 percent.

In another sliver of good news in an otherwise brutal poll for Obama, his approval rating ticked up from a low of 38 percent in December, to 40 percent.

More than half of all Americans, 51 percent, say Obama cares about their needs and problems, and voters are evenly split at 48 percent - on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy.

The survey carries a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

Obama's Terrible Approval Numbers Are Terrible
Yahoo ^  | July 2, 2014 | Abby Ohlheiser

Posted on ‎7‎/‎2‎/‎2014‎ ‎11‎:‎26‎:‎51‎ ‎AM by BradtotheBone

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 handful of post-war presidents who garner polarizing reactions from voters. Those presidents, roughly, are Kennedy, Reagan, and the three most recent: Obama, Clinton, and George W. Bush. When asked to choose the best post-war president, for instance, Ronald Reagan snagged 35 percent of voters. But 18 percent thought it was Kennedy. Clinton took 18 percent of voters, and 8 percent think it's Obama, putting him in fourth place. (George W. Bush, for what it's worth, had just 1 percent of voters on this question).

If you look at the political breakdown by party of who is saying Obama is the worst, it falls strongly along party lines, with a little bit of help from independents: 63 percent of Republicans chose Obama, while 54 percent of Democrats said George W. Bush. Independents voted "for" both: 23 percent said George W. Bush was the worst, while 36 percent chose Obama. On a similar question directly comparing Bush and Obama, the expected partisan divide is even stronger:

You were awfully busy posting the clown's numbers when they were in the 50s.

After 6 years of him shoveling horse shit on us... while getbiggers declared years ago "It'll be at 30% by the end of the month!" 

He FINALLY drops to 39%, with gas prices high and russia about to war, in the summer heat, with economy shitty - this nice summer perfect storm of events, and he FINALLY dips to 39%, and repubs are throwing a ticker tape parade like they just won 330 electoral votes lol.


Seriously, after the ball of crap we've had from him, 4 out of 10 of the people you see today still APPROVE of him.  And more than that would still vote for him. 

He was at 40% in 2012 and won by quite a few states over Romney.  Shit, I challenge anyone here to say "Yes, obama would LOSE the election in 2016 if he was allowed to run again!"

Does anyone believe that?  It's what americans do.  We already know how 94% of americans will vote in 2016.  Isn't that crazy?    So yea, let's all high five... it took 6 years of wiping ass on constitution and repub inaction, but by golly, he hit 39%!  Victory!

Oh, and he was at 43% just a few days ago.  Sad

I mean Obamabots (that includes you) always try and put a positive spin on the flood of negative news surrounding your Messiah. 

I have not called for his impeachment.  You're not calling for squat.  You're just tapping nonsense on a message board.  I doubt you even know what an impeachable offense is. 

And you voted for the man.  Plus you are one of the biggest Obama kneepadders on this board.  You liberals are funny.

I don't think he was born in the USA.   I feel he should be impeached for F&F. 

You buy into that phony birth certificate and you think he shouldn't be impeached for benghazi, F&F, etc.

LOL!  Why am I not surprised?  Anyone who believes we faked the moon landing, that Timothy McVeigh was not really executed, that the government carried the 911 terror attacks, etc., etc. would absolutely be gullible and naive enough to believe a mass conspiracy surrounding Obama's birth. 

You have no idea what the president specifically did that constitutes a "high crime or misdemeanor" regarding "Benghazi, F&F, etc."
