Public Policy Polling Has More Terrible Polling for Obama … New Job Approval Lows of 45%


The hits keep on coming for the job approval ratings for President Barack Hussein Obama, or should we say the lack thereof.

According to the most recent PPP, Public Policy Polling data, Barack Obama’s job approval rating has reached an all time low of 45%. How low can he go. Just 45% of voters approve of the job Obama is doing while 52% disapprove. Like so many polls before Obama is struggling with White and Independent voters. They have all but left the Obama “hope & change” reservation.

Barack Obama’s hit a record low in PPP’s monthly national polling on his approval numbers. 45% of voters approve of the job he’s doing while 52% disapprove. This is the first time he’s topped the 50% disapproval mark in our surveys.

There isn’t any one smoking gun to point to in explaining Obama’s diminished standing. In the last month he’s seen small increases in the number of voters disapproving of him among Democrats (from 13% to 16%), Republicans (84% to 88%), and independents (55% to 56%) alike.

The two most troublesome things for Obama in his numbers at this point are his standing among white voters and independents. Whites now disapprove of Obama by nearly a 2:1 margin, with 62% giving him bad marks and only 35% saying he’s doing a good job. With independents his approval is just 40% and 56% disapprove of his performance.

Not to worry though Barack, its not as though it was these independents who got you elected in the first place.

The PPP poll is just one in a continual trend that has shown that the American public confidence has all but left Barack Obama. Poll after poll repeat the same data … Obama and Democrats in some serious trouble.

      Rasmussen has the President at 50% approval…..time to use the PPP poll.

      Only a partisan hack (and not a god one at that) would say “the American public confidence has all but left Barack Obama” when citing a 45% poll number. After all, when the number is extrapolated it equals: 150 million people approve.

      150 million people approve of the President = public confidence has left? Only in teabag logic.

      Your intellectual dishonesty is appalling….oops, I forgot, you’re a teabagger. Correction: Your dishonesty is appalling.

      No matter what poll you use, yoyo, Mr. Obama’s job approval rating is poor to failing. And rightfully so: the guy has NO CLUE what he is doing. It’s just taken some people longer than others to face reality…the good news is that America is finally waking up!!

    3. Steve Holloway on July 15th, 2010 10:12 am

      #1 yoyo Your supporting this usurper is just as appaling and could be treason.

      If you would do a little digging for youself into who O is, you would run to the tea party screaming for forgiveness.

      The tea party has all colors in it because we are just AMERICAN’S concerned about our freedoms and our country becoming lost forever.

      And once again its not about race, black or white (O is both)its the policies and actions of this man.

      Hey YOYO, the truth is I am appalled the idiot has as high a rating as he does. If it wasn’t for deadheads like you his rating would be so small you would need a microscope to find it.

      This idiot and Nancy Polluted and Harry Reid need to disappear from our political arena after the dis-service they have perpetrated on this country.

      Polls can be skewed by how the questions are asked. However, because of his performance and those of his administration, his numbers continue to drop.

      When you are an empty suit, there is just nothing there to provide good results.

      Campaigning and governing require two different skill sets and Barry’s governing skill set is ZERO.

      In order to govern one needs real world experience not just community organizing experience and serving on boards of radical organizations.

      Poor YoYo just can’t accept that his boy is a failure.

      Boo Hoo

      Go cry somewhere else loser….

    7. yoyo muffintop on July 15th, 2010 2:03 pm

      Supporting the President of the United States is now treason? Jesus christ you folks are whacked.

      Newest poll today from Time:

      * 71 percent blame the Bush for the “balky economy,” 27 percent blame Obama.

      So….”we the people” know who f-ed up this economy.

      And back in 1982, around this same time, Gallup had this:
      * Walter Mondale 52%, Reagan 40%
      * Sen. John Glenn 54%, Reagan 39%

      How did the 1984 election turn out?

      Please Steve – the teahadist’s are old white republicans. You know, I know, everyone else knows it.

      But you can thank them for giving Reid back Nevada.

    8. yoyo muffintop on July 15th, 2010 2:07 pm

      Steve – why don’t you tell me who “O” is. I love to read what you’ve dug up.
      Let me guess – you will be too embarrassed to write it so you’ll tell me to look myself. Am I about right?

    9. Michelle Smith on July 15th, 2010 2:22 pm


      Wrong again. Liar

      Check out the facts if you dare.

      Try again loser

    10. yoyo muffintop on July 15th, 2010 5:37 pm

      #9 – Thanks for the link that proves me correct.

      Doesn’t surprise me #9…racists such as yourself never are the brightest.

      Love it #9…you expose yourself as the racist piece of shit you are then have the nerve to call someone else a loser. Lol. Of course in a racist’s mind such as yours, that’s probably about par for the course.

      Michelle Smith on July 8th, 2010 2:54 pm: It ain’t whitey that’s shooting up the hoods; it ain’t whitey have all these babies they can’t feed; it ain’t whitey that don’t want to work and live on welfare. They don’t try to improve their situation, instead they want to point the finger and blame hard working folks for their downfalls.

      Michelle it is YOU who is the loser. Oh…and you are a straight up racist as well.

    11. Steve Holloway on July 15th, 2010 5:47 pm

      You best learn some manners and some facts …

      Every poll has Obama under 50%. Try not to be such an idiot, or does it just come so natural. I think you are a tea bagger seeing that you have such a fascination with it.

      BTW, since when has this site not referenced Rasmussen, CNN, WAPO/ABC, CBS, PPP, Gallup, Zogby, etc? Pay attention or is that asking too much?

      Rasmussen Daily Presidental Index: Obama -17

      Rasmussen Job Approval: Obama approval 45 – disapprove 54%

      CBS Poll: Obama 44% Job approval

      WAPO/ABC poll: check out that trend line … down, down, down & America has no confidence in this President to do the right thing

      Here’s Yoyo idiots 50% Rasmussen poll … 50% of Americans think Onama doing a poor job with teh economy.

      Our personal favorite poll … did we forget to mention that it is from a Democrat poll by firm run by James Carville.
      55% of Likely Voters Think “SOCIALIST” is accurate way to Describe Barack Obama

      Yea … Obama just doing great. Obama is the biggest failure of a President since Jimmy Carter.

    13. super dave on July 16th, 2010 7:11 am

      the obamunists have sunk to a new low. their racist and black hate agenda have them using the race card daily. this excuse is a dead horse except for them using it toward the whole country.
      their plan to have their thugs infiltrate the tea party gathering in DC and yell out racial slurs to the black politicians shows their yellow streak.
      those same black politicians knew it was a setup and so did pelosi with their smug smile.
      democrats are cowards, same as liberals.
      yoyo, your president and eric holder support the black panthers in their agenda to murder innocent white (crackers) and their children and you want to use your poor ass racism excuse. that is the biggest word in your limited vocabulary. go back to school girl.

      Here it comes america!

      We are supposed to say “Yippee, the feds are enforcing the immigration laws!” and then be upset at the people that wanted the laws enforced when the fed recources are stretched to the fullest and they “have to” release the most dangerous illegals back into society.

      They are already “hinting” that will be the case in the same article as the one reporting the increase in immigration arrests. At least wait until the “have to” release the criminals to lie to us.

      Commie 101; overload the system and demoralize the populas.

    15. Rusty Bridges on July 16th, 2010 9:05 am

      the feds are doing their job, yipee! here is a link;

    16. Terryd270 on July 16th, 2010 9:09 am

      Fool me once shame on you, but how many times has Obama lied to us and those that keep supporting him are his enablers.. So again there will always be those that allow one to achieve an end; especially : one who enables another to persist in self-destructive behavior. I just hope we can last another two years with Obama..

    17. Michelle Smith on July 16th, 2010 11:19 am


      You are so retareded dude. I posted a link to the Rasmussen site showing you that Obama is not at 50% as you claim. You need to lay off the crack pipe.

      Again with the racist crap..Not going to work, it’s been misused & abused.

      Nice try though.

      BTW the quote you posted is just the truth. Black people keep blaming white people for their troubles when it’s black people that are keeping the black people down.

      You sir, just love using the race card when you don’t have any facts to back up your lies.

      You need to take your head out of Obama’s arse so you can see the truth.

      Obama is a failure.


    18. Rusty Bridges on July 16th, 2010 2:02 pm

      This is my favorite radio talk show host. Give a listen and see why.

    19. yoyo muffintop on July 16th, 2010 6:09 pm

      #12 – LOL. You ever hear of the concept called “margin of error” keebler?

      You only post the polls that facilitate your preconceived narrative of the day…blind hate of the President of the United States.

      #17 – you can try to blame away your clear racism, but by anyones standards YOU are a racist. Doesn’t surprise me that you don’t see it – most racists such as yourself don’t. It always end up coming out doesn’t it #17. “I’m not racist, I’m not racist” then BAM…you write black people don’t want to work but live off welfare, black people don’t want to better themselves, etc etc…..That’s RACIST crap straight from Aryan Nation/KKK/whateverwhite supremistgroupyouwanttoputhere. It’s pathetic that you don’t understand that and just shows that racism is alive and well.

      But thanks again for posting that link that backed up what I wrote – 50%.

    20. yoyo muffintop on July 16th, 2010 6:16 pm

      “You are so retareded dude.”

      Next time you attempt to call someone “retarded” #17, you might want to learn how to spell the word correctly. It makes you look…retarded.

      Epic fail at an insult #17.
