Gallup Poll: Barack Obama, the Incredible Shrinking Job Approval President … Disapproval Rating Hits All-Time High of 55%
The Incredible Shrinking Job Approval President …
The latest Gallup poll has Barack Obama at a 55% job disapproval rating, the all-time highest of his presidency. His approval job approval rating, a mere 38%.OUCH!!! What is most damning for Obama is that many individuals still blame Bush for the economy. The closer we get to the 2012 Presidential election, the campaign for the White House and the continued poor economy, the more Obama will be held responsible.
“Don’t they know it’s Bush’s fault”
Barack Obama’s average job approval at RCP is an incredible 43.6% approve and 52.8% disapproval (-9.2%).
Recently Obama was given an all time low mark of 29% approval in a Rasmussen poll in handling the economy. Why is Obama’s numbers sinking faster than the Titanic, only 14% think the country is headed in the right direction. The rule of thumb for an incumbent is that they are in trouble if their polling numbers are under 50%. What does it mean when you’re approval rating is 38% and disapproval is 55%? That is hardly the polling numbers of a reelectable President.
Barack Obama has stated in the past that he realizes that he expects to be judged on the economy in the 2012 election. How then does The One expect to be nothing more than a failed One term President? At what point is the Democrat party going to build a fire line to try and save the Senate, knowing that the Presidency is gone?
