Obama Gallup Third Quarter Approval Rating: Slip, Slip, Slipping Away … Down to 53% … Largest Drop for an Elected President


Barack Obama … You’ve come a long way baby … largest second to third quarter approval rating slide in elected Presidential history.

The MSM is always praising Obama for being the first black President and for being the first sitting President awarded the Nobel Peace prize. They can now praise Obama for yet another first as a President of the United States.

According the the Gallup Daily tracking, Barack Hussein Obama is the proud winner of having the largest second to third quarter drop of any elected president in history. More hope and change that we can believe in. Let’s repeat this so that the LEFT can comprehend what their Obamamessiah has just accomplished. The largest drop, -9%, of any US elected President.

Will “Blue Dog’ Democrats be so willing to back a President’s policies with this terrible approval rating trend?


PRINCETON, NJ — In Gallup Daily tracking that spans Barack Obama’s third quarter in office (July 20 through Oct. 19), the president averaged a 53% job approval rating. That is down sharply from his prior quarterly averages, which were both above 60%.

It is safe to say that the American people are dissatisfied and do not agree with Obama’s policies on the economy or healthcare. Obama’s approval rating continues to slide as Obamacare is rammed through the political process against the majority will of “We the People”.


The honeymoon with the American people is over. As Obama’s ratings plummet, the White House becomes more and more thin skinned and small in their attacks on Fox News and warnings to other media outlets to not follow Fox’s lead. Yet, Obama cannot make a decision on Afghanistan with troops, the stimulus plan was a failure, unemployment is nearing 10%. It is safe to say that the bloom is off the rose and Obama is in some serious trouble. So are Democrats that face elections in 2009 and 2010.

Even in Obama’s Europe, they are reporting that Obama’s approval rating drop is the worst in 50 years. Obama’s present approval rating of 53% approval rating is down from April’s 62% and down from his 73% when he entered the White House.

      Obama has created this slide to the bottom. Does he really care? You Bethcha ! His attempts to silence FoxNews. New Health care TAXES down the public’s throats, and freedom of choice taken away.
      Obama forgot he won on no more wars bring the troops home. He cannot get out of Iraq, and he has increased the body count in Afghanistan.

      I love it how people on the right say “Obama’s ratings are lower”….well, yes they are lower. Nobody can maintain a polling score above 70% forever. But that’s all the Right cares about….polling numbers!

      Here’s a fact SM. Obama is polling nowhere near Bush, Cheney or either houses. Got that?!!

      Not one person on the Right can poll near Obama. You guys are leaderless and are desperate for Fox News or Limbaugh to tell you who your next leader is. Keep on sailing that captainless and rudderless ship! Fox will take you just where you need to go. Sounds like the Titanic….

      Let’s be completely truthful here. Yes, the Gallup does show O’s approval rating at 53% and slipping BUT, the Gallup also likes to survey more Democrats than Republicans so their poll if often not really the face of the nation.

      In this case, Rasmussen who doesn’t monkey with skewing the polls shows O’s approval rating:

      Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.

      Are you that stupid? The man has shot hiomself in the D**k! His approval rating is 19% lower than George W. Bush’s was at this same point in time. He’s sinking and he knows it.

      #2 Jason,

      You poor delusional individual.

      News Flash: GWB actually had a higher job approval rating at one time following the 9-11 terrorists attacks.

      Dude, have ya ever heard of a trend? Obama has managed to lose his job approval rating in less than a year. You are comparing GWB’s after 8 years.

      But God forbid you let the facts get in the way of you Bull $hit.

      You delusional Libs are in for a rude awakening come 2010. No Dem is going to want Obama to campaign for them as he will be a liberal anchor.

    8. Scared Monkeys on October 22nd, 2009 9:58 pm

      Hey Libs, at this rate you are lucky that Obama will not be confronted in a Democratic Primary like Jimmy Carter was for his re-election.

      Can you say Hillary Clinton?

      I am writing here to let people know that we’ve long passed a 10% unemployment rate. I know this just by being observant of my neighbors. There is atleast one person layed-off in almost every home in the town I live in. In some houses there’s more than one person layed-off. I think they aren’t counting the people who’ve exhausted their unemployment, or the people who can’t draw unemployment.

    10. PA Mom on October 22nd, 2009 11:38 pm

      The biggest reason Obama is losing in the ratings is because there are no jobs. Health care is fine and jim dandy, but it doesn’t feed your children.

      Jason – dude..pull head out of Obama’s a$$; wipe the **** from your eyes….LOL…you are seriously delusional….

      Have you been paying attention? He’s slipping and the American people are making it heard.

      All you do is come on here and spout your usual, typical and boring liberal talking points…yawn….

      Gee, I wonder why FoxNews ratings have increased 20-30% since Obama declared war on them? Hmmm….

      Why have INDEPENDENTS (mainly white people who got Obama elected) have MOVED away from Obama?

      I bet you are just some 20 something punk who thinks you know everything and are being brainwashed into thinking Obama’s administration is actually accomplishing anything?

      What has he done? Name one thing; besides sucking the **** of every dictator and those who hate us and mind you long before ANY Bush took office….do some research moron!
