Barack Obama sees worst poll rating drop in 50 years


www.tel egraph.co.uk

Gallup recorded an average daily approval rating of 53 per cent for Mr Obama for the third quarter of the year, a sharp drop from the 62 per cent he recorded from April.

His current approval rating – hovering just above the level that would make re-election an uphill struggle – is close to the bottom for newly-elected president. Mr Obama entered the White House with a soaring 78 per cent approval rating.

The bad polling news came as Mr Obama returned to the campaign trail to prevent his Democratic party losing two governorships next month in states in which he defeated Senator John M

Just in from the Telegraph.

I wonder why this isn't on CNN, NBC and CBS?

My guess is that a number of factors contributed including:

-2,700,000 jobs lost since his Stimulus.

-Recent administration war on Chamber of Commerce and Fox.

-lack of positive action and leadership on health care.

-constant bullying of businesses and blaming Bush.

-hypocrisy and opulence.

If a girl gave you VD most would blame her not the lover that gave it to her. Bush gave Obama and the world VD.

Obama is just getting the blame for a disease he inherited..

This excuse has been used for the last 9 months. I think it's time to own the situation for what it is now. He has had 9 months to do what he campaigned for and he hasn't. The people that were blinded by "change" are starting to realize the only "change" was the person in charge.

"yes we can" take bush and his bff cheney off the pedistool. "yes we did" end the idea that america is still racist and now we are attempting to lead the world back to peace. but because none of what obama says matters until after a year until he gets enough presidential experience and because obama's working with the same guys that made bush into a clown,"now we're screwed"

That is such a stupid statement. He is doing nothing but making things worse, he is picking up where Bush left off.


Hes not trying to fix anything, hes trying to impose global governance, WAKE THE F UP.

Obama sure is letting a good many of the people who voted for him down. Many of the independent voters, young voters, and cross over Republicans are already fed up with the Administration's trail of broken campaign trail promises and not just more as business as usual inside the Beltway, but even more bsuiness for big business and big government that costs a lot and does little.

The reality is Obama doesn't have anything on the books that is going to increase his poll standings since all his policies are simply leading to more debt, and more socialization and nationilization and more expensive and more intrusive government that progressively takes more and more and returns less and less of anything of tangible value to the people.

Still the mood was ugly in the nation before the election with Bush's approval ratings at around 20% and the economy tanking.

If it weren't for an election where "Hope and Change" could be offered up as a notion of a immediate remedy on the spot things might have gotten very ugly.

The White House admits it won the contest off of youth voters and black voters, and it could be argued one voted for him not knowing any better, and the other did so out of pride and solidarity.

The reality is if you took the pride and solidarity out of it and just made it about good governance and leadership his approval ratings would be at about 35% and dropping fast.

That's why the media has to put a happy spin on things still to encourage the lemmings to not go the critical thinking route.

Eventually he will loose a large portion of the pride and solidarity feelings as people realize that the grocer will not take pride and solidarity at the register and the landlords and the banks won't take pride and solidarity as a form of payment either.

When we hit a true 35% to 30% approval rating whether the media reports or admits it or not we are very likely going to see pockets of civil unrest in communities throughout the country.

One of the reasons is that Obama played a very risky and dangerous campaign of promising people who had just about lost hope, that they could believe in "Hope and Change".

When the majority of the people realize that it's no longer safe to believe any politician to the left or the right when they promise "Hope and Change" because everyone in their recent memory who has, has lied they aren't going to any longer believe their is any "Hope" at "Changing" things at the poll.

When that becomes the public mood and it is rapidly becoming the public mood, brace yourself for one bumpy ride.

A better analogy would be Bush gave Obama VD, but Obama started spreading his VD instead of getting the proper treatment

Obama is nothing more than a G. W Bush clone.

#1. - In three months Obama DOUBLED the currency supply. the effect of this is the dollar has lost its status as a "hard currency" We will not see the major problems this is going to cause for a while. However when the bankers are finished doing their fractional banking magic a dollar will be worth a 2008 dime. link

#2 - Obama and Congress are trying to ram the "food Safety" con job link down our throats. This removes independent farmers from their land and leaves the USA with nothing but commerical farms owned by tyson, smithfield and the like. Say good bye to a cheap food supply.


The democrats and republicans are nothing but different sides of the same coin. the CFR and CED actually run this country. The following Excerpt shows how their influence has ripped apart our communities and placed our food supply in jeopardy. We now have no food reserves because the grain traders want crop failures to drive up prices.... going forward even small crop failures are going to drive grain prices to record levels. As an investor, we continue to find these long term trends...very attractive.”



....This transformation was the result of organized plans developed by a group of highly powerful – though unelected – financial and industrial executives who wanted to drastically change agricultural practices in the US to better serve their collective corporate financial agenda. This group, called the Committee for Economic Development, was officially established in 1942 as a sister organization to the Council on Foreign Relations. CED has influenced US domestic policies in much the same way that the CFR has influenced the nation's foreign policies.

Composed of chief executive officers and chairmen from the federal reserve, the banking industry, private equity firms, insurance companies, railroads, information technology firms, publishing companies, pharmaceutical companies, the oil and automotive industries,...

Their plan was so effective and so faithfully executed by its operatives in the US government that by 1974 the CED couldn't help but congratulate itself..

The human cost of CED's plans were exacting and enormous.

CED's plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers' lives ended in suicide [6], not unlike farmers in India today who have been tricked into debt and desperation and can see no other way out.

CED members were influential in business, government, and agricultural colleges, and their outlook shaped both governmental policies and what farmers were taught. Farmers found themselves encouraged to give up on a farming system that employed minimal outsourced inputs and capital and get “efficient” by adopting instead a system that required they go into debt in order to purchase ever more costly inputs,...

Wow, I'm shocked that his approval rating is that high. Of course, its just a daily average and nothing to be alarmed about.

Oh, how quick some folks were to blame 911 on Bush, while others were quick to blame 911 on the previous administration. Meh. Different face above the podium with the seal of the POTUS on it, the same people behind the curtain pulling the levers. Gee, what would cause Obama's poll rating drop so low? Um......Continuance of Crap! It's all okay though. We are in a "jobless recovery".


It's normal for some folks to blame something wrong going on, on the last person who left. And, likewise, it's normal for others to blame whatever is happening on the new guy. I've seen this for years on many jobs and in the military CYA! Put the blame wherever it can go so long as it can't be placed on, or near, yourself. Deflection. That is a common tactic.

Can you guys seriously lay back in the cut and blame Obama for anything that's happening now? He didn't take the guns away and it was Bush that let millions of illegals into this country. OK? Those are the BIG issues right?

Before Bush left office he bailed out all of his corrupt buddies


Obama had to do what he had to do with the cards he was delt, Bush simply did what he wanted to do.

BIG DIFFERENCE

I'm sure he has some miracles to preform near the end of his first term so it looks like things are coming together.
Lets vote him out next time around and get someone in there that wants to make us a great country again.

They both suck!
He is marching us toward total government control just like his predecessor. Regardless of blame, no matter how people try to make it look like there is no other way, it's all bull to be debated while they keep us going into the direction they want.

People are seeing this now and hopefully they will vote him out when his term is up and vote someone in that will make a difference.



government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I would not be surprised if his approval ratings go even lower then what GWB's were in fall 2008 by the midterm elections in 11/2010.

I know it's always going to be at least 13% with the support of the Blacks - as a whole the Black population will always support Obama due to their race based politics. Throw in the far left, the Pelosi, Reid, and Schumer crowd and he will be lucky if his approval rating is 25%.

I recommend reading the recent thread about George Soros being Obama's handler. Do a search on Esparanto.
This background is crucial to understanding the complexity of whom to blame.
It's very complicated by design.
