Barack Obama Falls to New Low in Gallup Job Approval Poll at 42%


Barack Hussein Obama’s job approval numbers keep falling … Gallup poll has Obama at new all time low of 42% approval and 49% disapproval.  Just one year ago Obama had a 54% – 39% job approval. Keep in mind the 42% approval rating comes before Obama’s Friday comments regarding the mosque in NYC and his subsequent back-peddling on the issue over the weekend.

Obama is rated poorly by Americans on the major issues. Economy & jobs are rated as the top issues among Americans, Obama rates dismally.

  1. Economy:  Approve 39% - Disapprove 59%
  2. Taxes:  Approve 41% - Disapprove 54%
  3. Health Care:  Approve 40% - Disapprove 57%
  4. Immigration:  Approve 29% - Disapprove 62%

  6. Situation in Iraq:  Approve 41% - Disapprove 53%
  7. Situation in Afghanistan:  Approve 36% - Disapprove 57%

Obama’s average job approval rating at RCP is -5.2%. What will Obama’s mosque comments do to further destroy his job approval ratings.

      Who on earth are the 39% that approve of an economy where the real unemployment rate is between 16% and 21% when you count those who have given up looking for a job.

      Could it be those who have lived off the public teat all their lives so they don’t notice any difference?

      Katablog you are right on the mark. We have about that percentage of welfare recipients in the country. Some are now 4th generation. Of course they are going to approve.

      Our founders warned of this type of behavior and thanks to the Democrats, we are now faced with the problem.

      I believe in helping people in real need, but four generations is beyond the pale.

      The only way to really put a stop to this is to take away the privledge of voting if you stay on welfare in any form longer than two years. An exception could be made for people over retirement age that worked and paid social security.
      If you take away the vote from these people, the politicians will stop pandering with our tax dollars for their votes.
