No it isn't.   Roll Eyes

getbiggers, do you know ANYONE that watches cable news daily - that hasn't already chosen which party they'll vote in 2016?

Seriously, how many fox viewers say "hey, I still might give the dems a chance in 2016"?  LOL
How many avid MSNBC viewers are telling their buddies on DU "I might give this Rand guy a chance in 2016"?  LOL

Most who watch mainstream media news are informed and already know who they'll vote for.

The only real exposure the swing idiot voters get are the debates right before the election.


media, media, media... Maybe you can tell us why "the media" couldn't stop the 2010 tea party awesomeness, but somehow manage to keep obama so popular today (all while losing viewers each year).

If it wasn't for the fact the lib media coudln't stop the 2010 landslide, I'd believe you.

it would be really dumb to say "100% of obama voters are poor".  I mean, if you take that literally, i'm sorry you read it that way.  I'm aware of the fact some others support him too.

youre missing my bigger point - more poor people benefits obama.  Most on food stamps & welfare aren't going to beg for president romney lol.   once you get someone on that govt teet, the dems have them.

Tea party has low approval rating because it get the opposite of the obama treatment in the media. They get smeared non stop on virtually every outlet, and when they are right (virtually always) the media is silent. Their numbers and popularity are much better on the ground level than those numbers would indicate

if they get the opposite how do you explain both numbers declining?

Isn't fox news the most watched network by a nice margin, aren't they sympathetic to the tea party? the apologists if you will.

Also, to the last point, couldn't I use this argument for Obama, or for anyone for that matter, that the numbers are better on the ground level?

True.  The media didn't really do squat about Grayson comparing the Tea Party to the KKK.  The media provides the president with the same kind of cover.

Why was the liberal media unable to stop the tea party in 2010 when they were trying heir hardest, but the TP is at dismal lows today, despite the fact the liberal media barely mentions it?

MSNBC tried everything in 2010, and tea party smashed them in the mouth.  How can we blame msnbc (rarely mentioning the tea party) when we have Boehnner on TV, TODAY, bashing the tea party and far-right elements of the party

Tea party is stronger today than it was then.  Back then it was opposed less than it is now by the msm, and it had the support of the establishment GOP. It wasnt taken as seriously back then by the libs and their media, and the GOP jumped on and supportedit, and it was a brand new thing, hence the higher 'approval'.

Today, the TP has been mercilessly torn into by the Left and their media, with ZERO positive coverage even when they have beenproven right, and the GOP has turned on them with as much hatred as the dems. The more they are vindicated, the more the established parties see them as a threat, the more they both turn their guns on them. Given the 100% negative non stop covrrage they get, its surprising that their 'approval rate' is still as high as 30%.

And once again, lets not pretend that just because Fox has the best ratings of the major news channels, that somehow outweighs ALL THE OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS COMBINED Roll Eyes and Fox doesn't just praise the TP anyway, they support the Vichy republicans at least as much.

in that case, the GOP would have to be the stupidest possible party in history. 

Boehnner is crapping all over the tea party and far-right ideals.  It's like he's purposely trying to hand 2014 and 2016 to dems.

ABC Poll: Obama Popularity Plummets to Lowest Level
Tuesday, 17 Dec 2013
By Melanie Batley

President Barack Obama's job approval rating has sunk to the lowest levels of his presidency in a dramatic reversal of his the commanding lead he held over Republicans in the wake of his reelection victory of just a year ago, a new poll has found.

According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted Dec. 12-15 , approval rates of both parties in Congress continue to be worse than the president's, but Obama's approval numbers have plummeted the most as the public pins more blame on him for the country's policy setbacks, including the botched roll-out of Obamacare.

Forty-three percent of the 1,005 adults surveyed approve of the job Obama is doing, while 55 percent disapprove. At this time last year, the numbers were virtually reversed with 54 percent giving the president a positive job approval rating compared to 42 percent who disapproved.

Obama's  slump "is all the more striking when compared with his standing a year ago, as he was preparing for his second inauguration after a solid reelection victory," the Post said in reporting the poll.

"That high note proved fleeting as the president faced a series of setbacks, culminating in the botched rollout of his Affordable Care Act two months ago."

In similar polls, every other two-term president since World War Two had an approval rating of at least 50 percent in their fifth year, with the exception of Richard Nixon who was embroiled in the Watergate scandal, the Post said.

Obama's plummeting figures are already triggering alarm among Democrats who fear the party's fortunes could suffer in the 2014 midterm elections. They worry they could lose control of the Senate and fail to pick up seats in the House.

Obama and Republicans are now tied on who is seen as better able to handle the country's problems at 41 percent. One year ago, the president held a 15-point advantage on that question.

Obama's lead has also eroded on who Americans believe is more capable to handle the economy, with 45 percent saying it's congressional Republicans compared to 41 percent who believe it's the president.

"Preference for the GOP approach over Obama’s in handling budget cuts vs. maintaining needed programs has risen since the shutdown by 18 points among independents and also by 18 points among adults younger than age 30, customarily a strong Obama group but one in which he lost ground sharply last month," ABC said in its report of the poll.

On the question of who is better placed to protect the middle class, Obama's lead has dropped by 20 points, from 26 percent to just 6 percent.

The findings hold true across all the key groups who were instrumental in the president's electoral successes, including women, liberals and the under-30s.

Meanwhile, approval of the job congressional lawmakers are doing continues to remain at near historic lows at just 16 percent. Disapproval of Congressional Republicans is only marginally worse than a year ago with more than seven in 10 people saying they disapprove. Congressional Democrats get similar ratings with six in 10 saying they disapprove.

The poll also found that voters are evenly divided on which party they would support in the 2014 races for the House. The eight-point advantage Democrats held in the wake of October's government shutdown has eroded to just two points, standing at 47 percent, compared to 45 percent who say they would back the GOP.

By way of comparison, Democrats also had a two point lead just before the 2010 midterm elections which saw an influx of Republicans elected to the House.

The president has, however, managed to reverse his negative ratings on key personal attributes, in particular, whether he understands the problems of everyday Americans and whether he is honest and trustworthy.

At the height of problems with the roll-out of the Obamacare website, small majorities gave the president negative ratings on those subjects. In the current poll, Obama draws slim positive ratings.

And even five years into Obama's presidency more Americans — 50 percent compared to 38 percent — blame his predecessor George W. Bush for the country's economic woes than point the finger at him. 

Nonetheless, disapproval of Obama's handling of the implementation of his signature healthcare law stands at 62 percent while disapproval of his handling of the economy is at 55 percent. Both figures are largely unchanged from a poll last month, though overall opposition to Obamacare has decreased from record levels of opposition.

The poll also found that almost half of all Americans think Obamacare will result in an overall worse standard of healthcare in the country, and six in 10 believe it will mean higher overall costs. Still, roughly six in 10 say they expect the quality and coverage of their own care will likely be about the same as before the new law.

Fox News Poll: More voters like Bush than Obama (& even more like Clinton)
By Dana Blanton
Published December 19, 2013
FoxNews.com

More voters have a positive opinion of former President George W. Bush than President Barack Obama, according to the latest Fox News Poll.  But former President Bill Clinton is liked best of the three.

The poll finds 50 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Bush, while 47 percent have an unfavorable view. 

By contrast, Obama has a net negative rating:  46 percent have a favorable opinion of him, while 52 percent have an unfavorable opinion.

Views of Clinton are far more positive:  70 percent favorable vs. 26 percent unfavorable.  That gives him a huge net positive rating (+ 44 points). 

The two former presidents and President Obama attended the memorial service for South African leader Nelson Mandela on December 11, and Bush joined Obama on Air Force One for the flight to Johannesburg. 

Obama’s favorable rating has been more positive than negative for almost his entire presidency.  However, in the last few months, during the botched health care roll-out, opinion of Obama has reversed.

At the end of Bush’s second term he had a 34 percent favorable rating (December 2008), but that’s been increasing the last few years during his retirement.

There’s a large partisan gap in views of Obama and Bush; for example, there’s an 80-point difference in Obama’s favorable rating among Democrats and Republicans.  And there’s a 60-point gap in Bush’s positive rating from the two parties. 

Eighty-five percent of Democrats have a positive view of Obama, while just five percent of Republicans feel that way.

Likewise, 85 percent of Republicans have a favorable opinion of Bush, while just 25 percent of Democrats agree. 

Fully 93 percent of Republicans rate Obama negatively.  In contrast, Bush’s unfavorable drops to 74 percent among Democrats.

Presidential Job Performance Comparisons

President Obama ends his fifth year in office under water on his job rating by 12 percentage points: 41 percent of voters approve of the job he’s doing, while 53 percent disapprove. 

President Bush ended his fifth year in office in negative territory too, by nine points:  42 percent approved of his job performance and 51 percent disapproved in the Fox News poll conducted mid-December 2005. 

Obama’s average approval rating for 2013 is 44 percent, just slightly below the 2005 average approval of 46 percent for Bush.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,027 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from December 14-16, 2013.  The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

The problem  for Obama is no one believes a word he says any more and the health care bills are starting to hit everyone.  All of Obama's lies are finally coming to light - even though most of us knew he was a con man and a liar from Day 1.

Fox News poll: Obama's approval hits new low
By Dana Blanton
Published March 05, 2014
FoxNews.com

President Obama’s job approval rating hits a record low this week, as a majority of Americans say his administration has mostly failed at growing the economy, creating jobs, improving health care and the country’s image.

That’s according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten -- 38 percent -- approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).

CLICK HERE TO READ THE POLL RESULTS

Approval of Obama among Democrats stands at 71 percent, near its 69 percent record low (September 2013). For independents, 28 percent approve, which is also near the 25 percent all-time low among this group (July 2013). And approval of Obama among Republicans hits a new low of five percent.

Overall, a 59-percent majority thinks the White House has mostly failed at creating jobs, up from 52 percent who said the same in October 2012. Likewise, 56 percent feel it has failed on growing the economy. That’s also up from 52 percent.

The greatest erosion is on improving America’s image around the world -- something Obama vowed to do once in office. In 2012, by a four percentage-point margin, voters felt the administration had failed to improve the country’s image. In the new poll that’s now a 26-point margin: 33 percent say mostly succeeded and 59 percent mostly failed.

Obama also promised to have the most transparent administration in American history. Voters are again unconvinced: 59 percent believe Obama has mostly failed to run a transparent administration.

On health care, 36 percent say the administration has improved it, while 57 percent think it has failed to do so.

The best of the issues tested for the White House is homeland security: 41 percent think the administration has mostly succeeded at making the country safer. That’s down from 52 percent who felt that way in 2012. More -- 48 percent -- think the Obama administration has mostly failed in this respect.

Sixty percent or more of Democrats feel the Obama administration has mostly succeeded in each of these areas except transparency -- on that issue it falls to 47 percent.

Majorities of independents say the White House has mostly failed in every area tested, including 68 percent who feel that way on improving America’s image.

As the crisis in Ukraine escalated, the poll finds by a 33-56 percent margin, most voters disapprove of the president’s handling of foreign policy -- a new low for Obama on this issue. In December, 39 percent approved and 52 percent disapproved.

On health care, 36 percent of voters approve of the job Obama is doing, while 59 percent disapprove. He receives an almost identical 36-58 percent rating on the economy.

Meanwhile, just over half of voters continue to say it feels like the economy is getting worse: 51 percent feel that way, down from 55 percent who said the same in February 2013.

For 34 percent it feels like the economy is getting better, up from 31 percent last year.

Finally, the poll asks if things are better since Obama became president. Just 34 percent of voters think the country is better off compared to five years ago, while most -- 60 percent -- disagree. In September 2012, some 45 percent thought the country was better off compared to before Obama took office.

Fifty-seven percent of Democrats say the country is better off today, down from 81 percent who felt that way in 2012.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,002 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from March 2 to March 4, 2014. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for the total sample.

Poll: Obama’s disapproval rating hits a new high
BY AARON BLAKE
March 26

Negative views of President Obama have hit a new high, according to a poll.

The AP-GfK poll shows 59 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama -- a point higher than the previous high set in December.

Obama's approval rating stands at 41 percent. That's the second-lowest figure the poll has ever found.

Part of Obama's problems appear to be related to foreign policy: The poll shows Americans disapprove of his handling of the situation in Ukraine 57-40 and disapprove of how he handles relationships with other countries 58-40.

In January, Americans were evenly split on Obama's diplomacy skills.

The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday.

Poll: Two-Thirds of Veteran's Disapprove of Obama's Job Performance
April 18, 2014
By Craig Bannister

Two-thirds of veterans (66%) disapprove of the job Pres. Obama is doing, according to a new survey by Concerned Veterans for America (CVA). Likewise, 68% say the country is "on the wrong track."

"Dysfunction in Washington" is the top issue facing Congress, 23% of veterans and current military members together said, followed by government spending/debt (19%) and economy/jobs (17%).

About three-fourths (73%) of those polled agree with former Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen that the national debt is "the greatest threat to our national security." Mullen has repeatedly issued this warming since his days with the Joint Chiefs.
