Gallup Poll: President Barack Obama Down to 42% Approval Rating


GALLUP POLL: 42% Approval Rating!

President Barack Obama is watching his presidency and reelection bid crumble before his very eyes. His handling of the economy has been nothing short of a disaster. Obama promised jobs and he come through with butkis. In fact, the unemployment rate has been increasing. Obama had no problem wasting America’s time passing Obamacare; however, when it came time for job creations … Obama has been an unmitigated disaster.

Enter the debt ceiling debates and President Obama showing his true liberal colors and trying to scare old people by saying that he was not certain whether social security checks would go out. How sad that Obama would turn to the oldest game in the Democrat playbook, scaring old people.

The result is that in the latest Gallup poll, Barack Obama has a 42% approval rating, while 50% disapprove. Hey Barack, you’ve come a long way baby from the 2008 Presidential election where you won with 53% of the vote.  Who really believes that after Obama’s first four years in office, anyone is going to vote for him again in 2012 like they did the first time around? “Hope & Change” has been replaced with a track record of failure.

UPDATE I: Gallup now at 44% approve – 49% disapprove.

      “Who really believes that after Obama’s first four years in office, anyone is going to vote for him again in 2012 like they did the first time around?”

      You will be amazed at how many idiots there is left (and I might add still coming across our southern border, out of their graves, etc…) that will still vote for Hoax & Chains. God help us because we’re going to need it.
      SM: You make a very good point. I should have been more specific, I completely discount liberals, progressives and Obama Kool-Aid drinkers. I speak more of the “Independents” who were duped in 2008. As The Who sings, “We Won’t Get Fooled Again”.

      Sadly, I have a highly, educated cousin who is independently wealthy and always votes Democrat. At a loss to why, but she’s all for that and would probably only vote Republican or otherwise with a gun to her head (maybe). Plenty will vote party lines, but my prayer is that many more will not! The independents hold quite a lot of weight in this one. I’m independent myself and have not voted for a Dem except in some local elections (like our sheriff who is just great…joke is he’s a closet Republican :) , but did vote for Perot years back and his votes put the worst guy in office. I was so unhappy with both major party choices, and I always vote! What else could I have done other than not vote (and I was young thinking that guy could pull it off)?

      What I AM hearing that gives me hope is talk around here that many who voted for Obama are simply not going to vote because they’ve been disappointed. That could mean a lot if his former supporters stay home. WE can only have “hope for a change” this next election. Right?

      [...] Liz Cheney states the obvious and can explain why President Barack Obama finds himself with a 42% approval rating. Barack Obama is out of step with America and what he is presenting to the American people, is not [...]
