POLL: Obama a Hindrance on Fall Elections... Yes, Yes, Yes, It's from the Hated Fox News, OMG, it has to be biased and not factually correct


Well myself and many Americans do believe it's correct and the problems with the Gulf, Borders, Jobs, Illegals, wars, Health Care, New Black Panthers, Holders Justice Department, Suing States and flying your dog in a separate jet for your vacation and taking a vacation every month is getting really Old With Most Americans, That I Know.

It is very apparent Obama does not Give A F@@k about America and here is a poll from the dreaded Fox News. Please enjoy, 2012 can not come quick enough.
Fox News Poll: Obama a Hindrance on Fall Elections,
Voters will go to the polls this November with control of Congress at stake. Yet most voters say when they pull that lever, they will be sending a message to the White House, according to a Fox News poll.

The poll, released Friday, finds that 41 percent of voters will cast their ballots to register opposition to President Obama's policies. A third (33 percent) will vote to express their support. The policies of the administration will not be a factor for 20 percent of voters.

Most Republicans — 72 percent — describe their midterm vote as expressing opposition to the Obama administration. That's a bit higher than the 64 percent of Democrats who say their vote will express support. One in 10 Democrats will vote to express opposition to the president (11 percent).

Independents are nearly 20 percentage points more likely to say their vote will express opposition (41 percent) rather than support (23 percent) for Obama policies. Thirty-three percent of independents say the administration won't influence their vote.

If the election were held today, 41 percent of voters would back the Republican candidate in their congressional district and 37 percent would vote for the Democratic candidate. That's little changed from two weeks ago when the vote favored the Republican candidate by 42-40 percent (June 29-30).
Most Democrats (79 percent) and Republicans (83 percent) would support their party's candidates. In a turn-around from the last poll, independents are more likely to vote for the Democratic candidate by a 31 to 25 percent margin. Two weeks ago, independents favored the Republican by 7 points.

Almost all voters — 91 percent — are at least somewhat interested in the November elections. More Republicans (66 percent) than Democrats (52 percent) say they are "extremely" or "very" interested.

Among voters who are "extremely" interested, 54 percent say they would back the Republican candidate in their district. Half as many (27 percent) say they would vote for the Democrat if the election were today.

Voters who consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement would vote for the Republican candidate by a 68-11 percent margin.

By 50-36 percent, more voters think Democratic control of Congress and the White House for the last year and a half has been bad for the country.

By 43-36 percent, more think it would be better for the country if Republicans win control of Congress in this year's election. Fifteen percent don't think it would make a difference either way.

The national telephone poll was conducted for Fox News by Opinion Dynamics Corp. among 900 registered voters from July 13 to July 14. For the total sample, the poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Bill Clinton Has the Most Political Capital
Nearly half of voters (49 percent) would be less likely to vote for a candidate if President Obama campaigns for them. That's 10 points higher than the number that would be more likely to vote for that candidate (39 percent).

It's about the same for former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin: 51 percent would be less likely to vote for a candidate she backs and 37 percent more likely.

Former Republican presidential candidate and Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney also risks doing more harm than good: 31 percent of voters would be more likely and 39 percent less likely to vote for a candidate if Romney campaigns for them.

Only former President Bill Clinton receives an overall positive response. By 45-41 percent, voters would be more likely to vote for a Clinton-backed candidate, rather than less likely.

By 16 percentage points, independents are more inclined to vote for a candidate supported by Clinton (47 percent) than Obama (31 percent). Clinton also outperforms Palin among independents by 24 points.

Republicans Preferred On Most Issues
The new poll shows that voters see Republicans as better at handling more key issues.

By double-digit margins, Republicans are seen as the party that would do a better job on terrorism (+16 points), the size of government (+16 points), the federal deficit (+15 points) and immigration (+13 points). They also hold the edge, though by slimmer margins, on handling Afghanistan (+9 points), taxes (+ 8 points), and the economy (+5 points).

Voters favor Democrats as the party that would do a better job on energy by 9 points and by 3 points on job creation.

The issue of health care is essentially a tie: 43 percent say Republicans would do a better job and 42 percent Democrats.

A Third Political Party?
A 57-percent majority thinks it would be a good idea if a third national political party were formed to run against the Democrats and Republicans. Thirty percent think a third party is a bad idea.

Two out of three independents (67 percent) think a third party is a good idea, while half of Republicans (50 percent) and over half of Democrats (58 percent) agree.

When asked specifically about the Tea Party movement, nearly half of voters (46 percent) think it is good for the country, while 29 percent say it's bad for the country.

About two-thirds of Republicans (68 percent) and half of independents (51 percent) think the Tea Party movement is good for the country. Twice as many Democrats say it's bad for the country (50 percent) as say it's good (25 percent).

Tea Party Versus Unions
The Tea Party has more positive political capital than labor unions in the upcoming elections.

Nearly equal numbers of voters would be more likely (42 percent) than less likely (38 percent) to vote for a candidate affiliated with the Tea Party.

This is why I prefer to get my news outside the US. One may think this is going to be a cakewalk for the Rep's. Not so:


Confidence in Obama is at a new low but the poll found that his numbers are still higher than lawmakers of either major party four months ahead of the November congressional elections.

Asked how much confidence they have in Obama to make the right decisions for the country's future, 58 percent of respondents said "just some" or "none."

Sixty-eight percent expressed the same sentiments about Democrats in Congress and 72 percent said the same of Republicans.

The Post said problems in the housing industry, sluggish job growth and other economic issues may have taken a toll on Obama's approval rating.

Just 43 percent of all Americans, including a third of Democrats, now say they approve of the job Obama is doing on the economy, while 54 percent disapprove.

The survey also found wide anti-incumbent sentiment with 62 percent of voters saying they were not inclined to support their current representative.

I'm thinking that the Great Obama Health Care Threats and the Scam that the American people understood it to be has come home to roost with the democrats that so foolishly followed their Dear Leader.
Well,, Democrats, you can burn your candles to your idol Obama and Michelle all you want, they will not save you. I think it's more like this for most of you.


When most Americans only want to see this on the next new conference from the W.H.


I think most Americans are tired of our leaders having their HEADS:


I'm sorry, but you Liberals need to understand, Most Of America Is Sick And Tired Of Your Savior, Hell, He didn't even keep his promise to the Gay Community and I don't care if they marry or not, I only wish you happiness and the same rights.
The question is DOES OBAMA? I think you were a tool like the blacks that voted for him, he used you.
That's how I see it.

We have one chance to get it right in these elections.

Republicans and Democrats be damned!

VOTE OUT all the incumbents, and VOTE IN the least likely candidates...

Get rid of the entrenched deal-makers.

Sever the complicit body from the evil head, We've been taken over by
the military, industrial and corporate interests...we need new faces...


edit to add: Nothing in government happens by chance. It is very likely
we will see a STRONG response from the Republican voters and likely
majority rule will switch back to the Republicans.

We are being worked like a candy-maker pulling taffy. And we had better
recognize this sooner than later...

From now until November many would like to point out polls after polls to get those on edge about voting a particular way to follow the crowd.

For example the other member who pointed out another poll sort of on the opposite end in comparison to the one you have referred to.

But to really get a feel for the situation, one just has to watch the news and see the hosts on news media channels, those State Run Channels that Pray to Obama and then get shunned from reporting on the gulf...but continue to Pray to Obama. You can see on these channels the frustration being felt, especially toward members of the TEA Party and the movement as a whole.

One can see how they marginalized the movement in the past by making them out as a fringe element a while ago, to using profane words against them that includes POTUS, Biden, both Speakers, and Now the NAACP.

The hysteria being felt and seen in the coverage & their news reporting can show those who don't like polls that the Democrats feel the pressure. And not just only Democrats but Republicans also. Those Republicans who promoted Hype and Chains have already been taken out of the Primaries by the TEA parties.

The reality of this situation is, Polls are useless...just watch them squirm on T.V and use every ally in their circle to discredit those bringing real change this November.

I concur with you, VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

prionace glauca, I really like watching them Squirm, You are correct of-course there all always two sides to a story but I often find that the Liberal side Lies to much and distorts the facts a little more to try and cover for their poor decision making and following their Obama agenda.

But I do agree with you.
I just needed to post this and get it out there, I know the Liberal channels have been ignoring Obamas complete disregard for Americans and our problems.

I am complete agreement with your outlook on this. Also my post was more towards those who fight polls with different polls. The discussion just ends being "Oh Yea, look at this poll....Oh Yea, look at this poll".

So for those non poll believers I just say watch the real time action of body language & discussions. One can clearly see the desperation.

Mrs. of the POTUS had to make a special for help from NAACP because ACCORN is out of business, well not out of business exactly just in hiding.

KilrathiLG, what you'll find here is that all the Obama networks, CBS, Time, ABC, and other Obama networks have to show a positive approval rating.
You, see they sold their Souls to Obama, You remember that, I have a Tingly Sensation Running Up My Leg and all those women fainting for the networks? They put him in office, Obama is a Loser and a Socialist and they have to deal with it.

Your OK, it's just hard to understand why two poll reporting agency's report a negative for Obama and the others report a positive.
The positive reports are from the approved by Obama news networks. He is their Messiah, Their Christ, Their Savior of our World.
Polling Data for President Obama Job Approval.
Poll Date Sample Approve Disapprove Spread
RCP Average 7/7 - 7/16 -- 47.0 46.9 +0.1
Gallup 7/14 - 7/16 1547 A 47 45 +2
Rasmussen Reports 7/14 - 7/16 1500 LV 44 55 -11
FOX News 7/13 - 7/14 900 RV 43 48 -5
Time 7/12 - 7/13 1003 A 49 45 +4
CBS News 7/9 - 7/12 986 A 44 44 Tie
Bloomberg 7/9 - 7/12 1004 A 52 44 +8
ABC News/Wash Post 7/7 - 7/11 1288 A 50 47 +3

Don't worry, you're more than sharp enough, I'm sure you see the difference and hear the difference with each news network you watch and then the difference you actually see out in the REAL WORLD!
The LIE to Cover for Obama and his Minions working in Congress.

WE NEED TO VOTE THEM ALL OUT!

What do ya say, KilrathiLG, we going to vote'em out or not?

simple answer is WE need reform on a massive scale

again sorry for the tom clancy refrence its just the closest i could come to an example

tom clancy references


I read his books all the time, it just the part where it takes him 10 pages to explain a pencil or 15 pages to explain the height and weight of a person in his novel.

Sir, Respectfully, I have listen to and watched my fair share of news from alternate sources.
I have found them to also, lean towards the politician they adore and the policy's that fit their agenda as well.

They also, tend to shape the news to their followers and what their population wants to hear about us here in America and how it would effect their world according to their news outlet.
So, I tend to stick with American news networks and I filter out this and that.
I was really big on the BBC a few years back, but that changed over night.
Don't ask why, it was my way of thinking about our world and i still believe the way i do.

But I needed to Star you anyway.

First off please don't call me "Sir" I'm just another member like you. Your opinion is not worth less than mine. Common mistake here.

I have to disagree with this. Non-American sites don't remove or edit the facts that they don't want published. Unlike the MSM of the US.

That's because you are gathering news that suits you. Not what the news actually is. You need to expand on that. See what's REALLY going on.


But I needed to Star you anyway.


Thank you but if you hear what I'm saying I'll be happier.

Numerous investors, businesses and solar industry consultants involved or familiar with Chinese and other foreign investments in Arizona’s solar landscape declined or refused to comment on the nature of that financing and why many of the deals are kept private.

Seems China is taking part in ATS to Guohua. that is a Chinese name right. So what is your agenda?


Confucius Institute at Arizona State University
The Arizona State University Confucius Institute offers a sustained source of knowledge about China for Arizona citizens through the following programs:

* Faculty exchanges between ASU and Sichuan University

* Public, socially embedded Chinese language and culture programs

* Symposia and lectures related to China

* K-16 Chinese language programs

* Professional training programs for teachers of Chinese in Arizona

* Support for overseas study for graduate students

* An intensive Chinese language summer program in Chengdu, Sichuan

ASU CI extends connections to the business community and actively seeks partnerships with local business professionals and corporations to offer Chinese culture and language training.

Right-wing absurdly claims U.S. "apologizing" to China because of Arizona immigration law
May 17, 2010 7:19 pm ET by Kate Conway

Right-wing bloggers and Rush Limbaugh are pushing an absurd distortion of an AP report on a meeting on human rights to claim that the U.S. "apologized" to China over the Arizona immigration law. In fact, nothing in the reports indicates that the U.S. "apologized" to China.

I see my wife had already reply to you in another thread here at ATS that you posted the exact same thing on.
Your weird, you think A S U is the only University that does that.

Besides, if you'd had been a FireFly fan you would know, it's best to learn Chinese now rather than later.
