Barack Obama Down to 45% Approval in Rasmussen Poll … PPP: More People Think GWB Did Better Job with Katrina than Obama with Oil Spill
How low can he go?
If Obama’s handing of his first year and a half in office was not bad enough between the economy, unemployment, record budget deficits, no job creation, continued government spending and Obamacare … now he is faced with the image that the American people have that he has no leadership skills with the BP oil spill crisis.
According to the latestRasmusseen poll, President Barack Hussein Obama is at a 45% approval and a 54% disapproval rating. Only 24% of American voters strongly approve of the jobs that Obama is doing. How is that “Hopey, Changey” thing working out for you America?
Now comes the most damning poll for Obama in some time. For Barack Hussein Obama his entire presidency has been based on the premise that it’s George W. Bush’s fault. Obama has made it a cottage industry to blame Bush for everything while provide no leadership to issues. Enter, the Left leaning PPP poll and a doozy of an analysis and commentary on Barack Obama. Imagine this, according to Public Policy Polling, more Louisiana folks think that GWB did a better job handling Hurricane Katrina than Barack Obama has done with the BP Oil spill. OUCH, THAT’S GOING TO LEAVE A MARK!
LET US REPEAT THAT FOR PEOPLE WHO MIGHT HAVE MISSED IT, MORE PEOPLE THINK GWB DID A BETTER JOB OF HANDLING HURRICANE KATRINA THAN OBAMA HAS WITH THE BP OIL SPILL.
Full polling results HERE.
Our new Louisiana poll has a lot of data points to show how unhappy voters in the state are with Barack Obama’s handling of the oil spill but one perhaps sums it up better than anything else- a majority of voters there think George W. Bush did a better job with Katrina than Obama’s done dealing with the spill.
50% of voters in the state, even including 31% of Democrats, give Bush higher marks on that question compared to 35% who pick Obama.
Overall only 32% of Louisianans approve of how Obama has handled the spill to 62% who disapprove. 34% of those polled say they approved of how Bush dealt with Katrina to 58% who disapproved.
For those polled, Obama’s actions have gone from bad to worse. Not obly has Obama shown a complete inability to lead and grasp the importance and severity of the issue, The One has made matters even worse by putting a moratorium on platform offshore drilling that is causing even further economic devastation to an area already in crisis.
One thing the oil spill has not done is created a spike of opposition to offshore drilling in Louisiana. 77% of voters still support it with only 12% against. Only 31% say the spill has made them less inclined to be in favor of drilling while 42% say it hasn’t made a difference to them and 28% say they’re now stronger in their support.
Maybe Barack Obama can go play a round of golf and think about the BP oil crisis in the Gulf some more. Look for Obama’s avergae job approval polling mumbers ar RCP to go into the red.
