More bad news for Barack Hussein Obama.
The President's overall approval rating continues to fall dramatically.
Is this good news for the country, or bad? IMO, it does make me feel that the citizens of the United States are slowly beginning to believe that they have made a mistake in electing this President (twice). The President's rating continues to fall in most every category...among Democrats, as well as, Republicans and Independents.

Perhaps President Obama's handling of Putin in the current Ukrainian crisis will alter these ratings for the better, but, thus far, this seems doubtful. How LOW can President O GO?; Time will tell...but it doesn't look good.



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).


ACTUAL POLL: www.foxnews.com...



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.

Crazy to think our last two presidents will have served TWO full terms and, unless Barry-O turns this around, both will have finished with under 50% or even 40% approval ratings.

The founding fathers are rolling over in their tombs.

Seeing how it's a FOX poll I'm surprised he rated that high. Other polling sites give a higher number.

Gallup is still at 42%
Rasmussen Has him at 46%
RCPHas him at 42.5%

Everyone except FOX has him at over 40%.

Don't they have a margin of error of - or + 3%?

My first reaction was "this is old news" thinking it was an old poll.

I guess he just keeps on hitting rock bottom over and over and over and over....

I am amazed it is that high.

He makes Jimmy Carter look tough.

What happened when George Bush's rating hit rock bottom?
Anyone remember a little thing called 9/11? Followed by an invasion of a sovereign country without a legitimate pretext( I'm mocking John Kerry folks),and Bob's your uncle...everyone forgets about the ratings and things are all happy in fantasy land.
Obama needs something to get the American people to rally behind him.
Hey, a good old war usually does the trick...all we have to do is wait for Russia to do something that protects their interests in the region and we call it an act of war. Then America rolls in like the good guy and saves the day.Obama's ratings go up, Hillary
eats a few more babies to get back to full health and they ready us for her election in 2016.

Factor out the people who lied about their true feelings just so they didn't feel "racist" (The Bradley Effect) and Barry's real approval is in the 20's.

False flag events with intent to start wars aren't put into motion by anyone who cares about what the general population thinks about the Pres.

Fox may just be a couple weeks ahead of the curve. Lets see what the other polls do then. In any event he is certainly nearing GWB's polling at this time in his presidency perhaps with the goal of equaling Richard Nixon.

You could be right...but it doesn't hurt.

I recently finally found a reason to actually like the guy. At least since he is such a weak, indecisive, impotent leader he may not get us in any more trouble than he already has. Even he must be aware at some level how badly he has failed at everything, and whether he will admit that or not, I hope it will be an incentive to keep him from taking any more chances to lower that rating even more dramatically.

Conversely, Vlad's ratings from Pravda (Truth
)at 67.8%...continue to impale Barack's!




Putin's approval rating in Russia sets new record



The approval rating of Russian President Vladimir Putin remains at the highest level during the last two years for two consecutive weeks - 67.8 percent, a survey conducted by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM) said.

Sociologists noted that Putin's rating has been growing against the backdrop of the worsening political situation in Ukraine and the Crimea, successful completion of the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and preparations to the opening of Paralympic Games.

VTsIOM stressed that over the past two years, Russian citizens have expressed approval of the work of the head of state on the level above 60 percent.

Previously, the maximum value of this index was reported in May 2012 (68.8 percent), immediately after Putin's inauguration as president.

This shouldn't surprise anyone really... He and his administration are utter failures on almost every level.

Executive order after executive order. Power abuse at its finest.
