Barack Obama, You’ve Fallen a Long Way Baby: Drop in Gallup, NBC News/Wall Street Journal, Rasmussen Job Approval Polls


Barack Obama, You’ve Fallen a Long Way Baby …

The most recent Gallup Daily Obama Job Approval poll has The One at a 53% approval, Obama_Hype39% disapproval rating. That certainly is a long way from the once 70%-11% rating back in February 2009. His job approval rating has slipped 3 points from the previous week, and 3points from the week before that. Since early May, Barack Obama has lost 13% points  in his job approval.

There is obviously a direct correlation between the $787 billion Stimulus bill having no effect on stopping unemployment and the debacle that is Obamacare. Obama’s Health care is tanking. With the health care votes being pushed back to October, one wonders how irate the American people will be with this Obamacare the more they find out about the specifics.

In the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, Obama has slid to a 53% approval ratings. However, the real story is despite the Obama White House’s all out media campaign for Obamacare, only about 40% of voters approve of how he is handling the health care issue. What does this mean for The One? Not only is Obamacare an unmitigated disaster and the people are starting to figure it out, Barack Obama has failed to use his speech, charm and teleprompter to persuade Americans that he is up to the task with regards to health care.

Despite his public-relations blitz over the past two weeks to promote his plans to reform the nation’s health-care system — including holding two town halls on Wednesday — President Barack Obama has lost ground on this issue with the American public, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Pluralities now say that the president’s health care plan is a bad idea, and that it will result in the quality of their care getting worse. What’s more, just four in 10 approve of his handling on the issue.

It has become the ultimate Catch-22 and Obama cannot escape it.

[Thomas Frank of the Wall Street Journal] might need to contemplate the fact that Obama’s personal popularity is falling precisely because of the “reforms” Thomas Frank endorses. It’s a nice catch-22. Socialized medicine needs Obama to be popular in order to pass, and socialized medicine is making Obama unpopular.

Support Slips for Obamacare.

In mid-June, respondents were evenly divided when asked whether they thought Mr. Obama’s health plan was a good or bad idea. In the new poll, conducted July 24-27, 42% called it a bad idea while 36% said it was a good idea.

Among those with private insurance, the proportion calling the plan a bad idea rose to 47% from 37%.

Only two in 10 people predicted the quality of their own care would improve under the Obama plan

In the Rasmussen Presidential Daily Approval Index, Obama still in negative double digit numbers.

      The saddest part is that Mr. President just doesn’t get it. Over 40% of us DO NOT WANT his “reform” to pass. How loud does America need to scream before he hears us???

      Health care is his waterloo.

      obama is now resorting to scare tactics to force Americans to accept his healthscare reform.
      this reminds me of street gangs that strong arm
      business owners in their hood to pay protection
      what we have is nothing more than a gangster in obama using the same tactics.

      It’s hard to hear people screaming when you have your fingers in your ears and you are singing “La la la la! I can’t hear you!”

      Why do any of you think that the Cupcake Meister (yes, he told us yesterday that his “tax cut” allowed Americans to “buy cupcakes and other necessities)cares one wit about what we want/don’t want? Clue train: he doesn’t. He and his minions are planning to pass government health control no matter what we think, say or do. After all, we are merely the chattering class.

      it’s all for the illegals and blacks.

      I’m a Canadian who is alive today because of our health care system. I’m a 45-year old woman who was diagnosed with lung cancer six years ago. I received the finest health care possible and did not even have to have radiation or chemo and I’ve been given a clean bill of health. Public health care works.

      #10 – yeah right. I call BS! Then why are THOUSANDS a day coming over the border to get operations they can not get in Canada or Britian or any other socialized medical country? Why? Explain it! It’s been PROVEN by FACTS that socialized medicine is a KILLER and does not work. End of life decisions made by the government. I’m sure the treatment you got was denied to a 75 year old with the same illness.

    12. A Texas Grandfather on July 31st, 2009 3:27 pm

      People, this healthcare bill is all about government control of the population. The health portion is a distraction or misdirection so that the real “meat” of control is not exposed.
      We need to send most of the Social Democrats home in the elections of 2010 and a few of the liberal Republicans with them.
      This is easier than you think. The answer is DON’T VOTE FOR ANY IMCUMBENTS. These idiots made the mess we are currently in and they need to be fired.
