Barack Obama Slips to a New Low of 47% in Gallup Poll


Christmas is the season of giving and Barack Obama continues to give away job approval percentage points. In the most recent Gallup poll (Dec. 4-6 polling), President Barack Hussein Obama has slipped to a new job approval low of 47%. It is starting to become a consistent trend across all polling that The Chosen One is now under 50% for job approval.


How Low Can He Go

Barack Obama’s presidential job approval rating is 47% in the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update, a new low for his administration to date. His approval rating has been below 50% for much of the time since mid-November, but briefly rose to 52% last week after he announced his new Afghanistan policy.

Any slight bump in support Obama received coincident with his new Afghanistan policy proved to be very short-lived, as his approval rating returned to below the majority level by the weekend, and slipped further to 47% in Dec. 4-6 polling.

If we take only December’s Obama polling averages from Real Clear Politics, Obama finds himself at 48% approve, 48.7% disapprove. This is the first time that the average job approval rating has been a negative, RUT-ROH!

Obama finds himself at -11 in the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking poll, it is the 19th straight polling day in a row that The One is in negative double digits. With Obamacare polling at 51% disapprove and 41% approve, The Obamamessiah and Democrats continue to force the unpopular legislation down the throats of Americans. Obama will also go to Copenhagen in the midst of Climate-gate and act as if there is no scandal in an effort to praise man-made global warming. All these most unpopular efforts will cause Obama’s poll numbers to crater even more.

At some point Democrats really need to ask themselves why they are going out on a limb for a President hovering near 40% approval.

      …and where was he (and the msm that follow his coattails) on Pearl Harbor Day?

      Did he say anything or address the few remaining survivors of America’s Greatest Generation?

      God bless America and those who fought and sacrificed for our rights and freedoms, one of them being the freedom and right to cast a vote on 2010 and 2012 to elect someone that knows what they are doing.

      Shame on the leader of the free world, President Obama, for not addressing the American people to pay homage to the brave men and women of this day in history. That is really low class.

      For all the ballyho that he used during the primaries and election about his grandfather, he pushed him to the side once he got elected. Shame, again.
