President Barack Obama Poll Numbers Sinking like a Stone … Obama get Vote of No Confidence on Economy & Health Care


According to the Rasmussen Report Daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday, 7/26/09, Barack Obama has hit an all time low. The S.S. Titanic, otherwise known in the MSM as the Good Ship Obama is taking on water and sinking fast.

After six short months, America has Obama fatigue and is already tired of his policies. Think voters do not have buyers remorse? It is bad enough that voters question Obama’s handling of the economy, but his latest irresponsible comment regarding race and the arrest by Sgt. James Crowly of the Cambridge police of Harvard professor Gates has certainly opened some Obama voter’s eyes.

Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11. That’s the first time his ratings have reached double digits in negative territory


Only 29% of voters now strongly approve of The One’s job approval, while 40% strongly disagree. Even more damaging to Obama is that his overall approval rating is at 49–50 disapproval.

From the Gateway Pundit, there are Zogby poll numbers that are even worse as Obama Presidental approval ratings fall to 48%.

Why is this troubling and a concern to the Obama White House? Barack Obama beat John McCain in the 2008 Presidential election by a 53% to 46% margin. Check out the exit polls from the election and see if you think that Obama could ever get the Independent vote or any Republican, let alone Conservative vote. Does any one think that Obama could get 49% of voters making over $100,000 when all his plans do is tax them for all of his social programs?

In another Rasmussen poll, 54% of voters still blame George W. Bush for the bad economy, yet Barack Obama’s poll numbers are still sinking. However, as one can see from the overall Obama rating, Americans are sick of the excuse of inheriting a bad economy and look to Obama to man up and fix the mess. After all, that is one of the reason that he was supposedly elected. However, there is a bizarre twist in this poll. The survey found that 39% say the policies of President Barack Obama are to blame for the economy.

However, only 25% of voters believed that the $787 billion stimulus (pokulus plan) has helped the economy. First he claimed that the stimulus had to be passed immediately and it would save jobs and unemployment would never go above 8%. Then the reality set in when it reached 9.5%.Then Joe Biden says, they misread the economy. And it gets worse …

Yet, 53% of voters oppose the Congressional Health care reform known as Obamacare. Obama is getting poor marks on how he is handling health care. Barack Obama also receives terrible marks when it comes to how he is handling the economy, health care and the budget. It would appear that even though the voters might still blame GWB for the economy, they give Obama a vote of no confidence when it comes to being the steward of the economy. Everyone, including Obama, his VP and Cabinet knew what they were inheriting. Voters are tired of the excuses and want results. That is what was promised.

      His poor approval ratings have been low for some time. The media chose to ignore and not report them. Obama is a Marxist…he needs to resign.

      I am not surprised at Obama’s low ratings. He has to make v difficult decisions and put right a lot of wrongs. It is difficult and hard to accept by a lot of “I told u so” people. I know his policies will prevail and USA will be better for it
      SM: LOL, you might want to brush up on some economic courses.

      This President has done very little right. Maybe America needs to reflect for all those who voted for him and ask themselves how they defined “CHANGE”?

      If everyone was so behind his policies, The One would have a 60% approval ratings. No one, not even GWB after the hanging chad vote of 2000 had an approval rating this low at this time.

      America has suddenly realized they made a mistake and do not want this President to inflict any more hard upon the US.

      Look what happens when America actually wakes up and pays attention.

      Maybe the next time there is an election, “WE THE PEOPLE” will actually care enough to 1. understand what each candidate is about and 2. VOTE!

      Let’s start paying a little less attention to reality TV votes that will never impact you and more about votes that do.

      Maybe also, you can stop believing everything that the MSM tells you as if they do not have an agenda.

      Also, RNC … maybe you can provide a candidate that is actually a Republican and not Democrat-light.

      #2—So you say it’s “difficult” & “hard to accept” by those of us who didn’t vote for Obama….Trust me, by being able to say ‘We told you so” does not bring gratification.

      The only feel good many here will have collectively is when the rest of America wakes up, stops buying the chosen one’s rhetoric & BS, and realizes once and for all- that this man simply did not have the experience to run our Country through a very difficult economic time. Does he get any points for taking the difficult job and going at it? No, since he hasn’t been honest (oh, big shocker there) with the American people and has continually misrepresented and lied about many of his already broken campaign promises. The spending, OH GOD! The spending. Not happy at all that my children’s grandchildren will still be paying for this mess for years to come.

      Point is, the rants could go on and on—let’s again remember there is no solace taken in knowing Obama was going to be dangerous for our Country…..what concerns many still is that who do we have to turn to in 2012, #1- and #2-how battered will we be as a Nation by then to be able to bandage our deep wounds up and begin the climb upwards again?

      that MSNBC can’t get off of GWB long enough to tell the truth about Obama I can’t stand to evan watch that show Fox is my show!

    7. SUPER DAVE on July 27th, 2009 8:27 am

      #2: it’s difficult for us to accept that some of our fellow citizens actually were insane enough to vote for a non-American for president.
      especially one who has shown so little knowledge about our country and zero compassion.

    8. SUPER DAVE on July 27th, 2009 10:16 am

      obama has no other excuses to use except that he inherited this mess from bush. i believe when he was campaigning, he bragged and strutted like a banty rooster that he wanted it, could fix in in months.
      loud words and actions are usually for a weak cause barry !

      I am not surprised at Obama’s low ratings. He has to make v difficult decisions and put right a lot of wrongs.

      #2, please list for me the “wrongs” that The Won has righted. Then I’m going to ask that you list the “difficult decisions” he’s made.

    10. Scott on July 27th, 2009 12:16 pm

      The masses are actually LISTENING to what he is saying now and are NOT mesmorized by his the WAY he speaks anymore.

      A very very different person is in the White House then the one that was out campaigning; a true bonafide LIAR!

      Obama is one of the best president!!! He only sleep 6 to 7 hrs per day and work his ass off. CHEERS BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!!!! Any person between the age of 18~32yrs in here from any university? one more thing…..the president is a workaholic.
      SM: Maybe he should sleep more and screw with the economy and America less. BEST!!! Oh dear God go take your meds.

      Obama is a rank amature twit who is so far over his head. Welcome to the Carter Administration for the 21st Century.

      He can always be elected president of Kenya afterwards, being its natural-born citizen of over 35.

    17. cedric on September 8th, 2009 3:08 am

      just like i thought..this is another stupid republican website and my comment won’t get might don’t want the president to speak to the children but at least he cares more than the last one who just sat there with his tail between his legs while the building was being attacked and 1000′s of innocent people die..what a great president GB was…hahahaha you fools!!
      SM: Gee Cedric, another lunitic moonbat. Your comment is posted, to show all how foolish the LEFT truly is.

      That’s funny, I remember on 9-11 when GWB was talking to the children at a school when he was notified that he acted in a responsible manner. He did not worry the children by getting up and running off in a panic like BO would do.

      Maybe you might have better luck if you didn’t insult people. You have no idea who we are or what we believe. However, you are just one in the many of sad pathetic LEFTIES who like to insult and then bitch their your freedom of speech is taken away. Big talk from behind a key board!

      GWB did some things right and some things wrong; however, at least he was not a socialist.

      If anyone thinks that what wound up being Obama’s speech to the children was the same one that was intended, you are a fool.

      The President got this hand slapped by “We the People” again, just like he will in 2012. From The One .. to one and done.

      Hussein obama, the one timer. I am so glad to see fellow patriotic real Americans out here in America like myself speaking the truth about this fraud. But it is time to impeach the joke hussein obama. And also to get rid of pelosi, hell get rid of all liberals and demorats out for good. I am so sick of these o.a.k. people. Obama A$$ Kissers. Only reason they voted for him was because Hussein obama promised to hand out free tax payers money to all the worthless people in the country. The people who are to lazy to find a job or to get a job, to dumb, they just want to sit on there lazy obese butts and live off of welfaire cause hey, this is obama’s america where people can get paid by sitting and doing nothing. I am so sick of my tax dollars that I worked hard for being handed out to these worthless ghetto trash people who just hold there hands out and get free money, obama’s money, where you think he got the money? FROM MY POCKET! FROM MY WORKCHECK! I say, turn the ghettos into ash! and to all the o.a.k. people, well, I just do not know. Can’t kill them, so I guess, let them just keep making themselves look like jacka$$e$. Well the democrats are represented by the animal that is a donkey. So it fits them all very well. Bunch of Jacka$$e$. And if you think I am being hateful. NO, I am just speaking the truth! Impeach Obama!

      The manipulation of the polling datais interesting, When George Bush was president the daily polls only had one figure and that was his disapproval rating. Now that Obama is president the pools usually begin with segmented polling data that not even Obama can begin to understand. The public has no idea which end of the horse is being judged.

    20. Jay Wentworth on December 9th, 2009 6:09 pm

      The DNC manipulated Obama victory by busing in those worthless bums in the Ghettos! Look at Ohio, all the DNC victories were in the inner city areas and the rest of the state was all RED. The DNC was smart, they used the massive amounts of minorities to get victory with Obama as their front man. Just look at the election results, all the ghettos BLUE and top that with the free food, free rides and god knows what else the DNC did to get massive numbers of minorities to vote.

      Now that Obama is in, the masters to be are telling him how it is going to be. As you can see, his handlers have already forced him to back down on most all his campaign promises. Obama, good friends with Communist China, wants more trade with the Commies, yet, during his election promised American workers more effort to attract employers to do business in America, ha ha, yeah right.

      Obama, “Bring the troops home”, ha ha, 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan … despite warning from Russia that victory is impossible and they should know figuring they just about went bankrupt trying to achieve victory in Afghanistan during the 80s. When Russia pulled out, the CIA did too … leaving their “army” defenseless and angry at the West thus the Taliban was born.

      Obama, from a mother who slept around with the United Nations. Is Obama even a true US Citizen?

      Well, liberals, know this, Obama is a tool and you are fools for ever believing you can change a thing.

      The RNC and DNC, both corrupt and controlled by the same masters. The joke is on Americans that think they have choice. Ha ha. You are free if you THINK you are free, lol. Most European nations have 5 or more parties in elections and give equal time to all during debates. In America, you can only BUY you way into power thus democracy is flawed as it can be purchased! The USA Democracy was an EXPERIMENT per our Founding Fathers and the experiment failed because DEMOCRACY can be purchased.

      It is time for change, third Party alternatives for true patriots and those that fight the evil of liberalism. Wake up, take a stand today.

      USA is only a Millitary power thanks to the bushes . America lost its glory :) .

    22. Fred on January 28th, 2010 5:50 pm

      Obamaprompter and the Americans are just not on the same track; how much money does he think we can work for? his spending is out of control; his ideals are nothing but talk; let him make a health plan for ALL Americans ~ politicians included! And like Americans, their insurance expires when they are out of work.

    23. Fred on January 28th, 2010 5:55 pm

      Before Obamaprompter leaves office, I would like to schedule a “beer pacifying party” with Obamaprompter, BotoxBiden. They should have everyone over for a scheduled pacifying party ~ what a joke! And have Mrs. O go on TV, asking for our donations while wearing those lovely pearls and pearl? diamond earrings.
      What did they personally donate to Haiti? (just curious)

    24. Fred on March 14th, 2010 12:15 pm

      Strategic fit
      Resored our reputation
      Let me be clear
      Mak no mistake
      Signs of recovery
      Out of the loop

      How many times do we need to hear those words which do absolutely nothing.
