Barack Obama Job Approval Poll Averages 44% in 3rd Year of Presidency … Only Jimmy Carter Was Worse


It would appear that Barack Obama was not the one that we had been waiting for, not by a long shot.

He’s going down, down, down, down … Barack Obama. The One is was at 69% approval on Inauguration Day, 57% in his first year, 47% in his second year and now … 44%.

According to Gallup, Obama’s job approval average for his third year in office was just 44%, second worst in history. Guess who was the worst, hold it, hold it … Jimmy Carter. That is correct, three years into his presidency and “The One” ha never been lower as Obama’s 44.4% polling average only tops Carter’s 37.4%. As we have said for quite some time, Obama’s presidency has been Carter’s second term.

President Barack Obama averaged 44% job approval for his third full year in office, which ended Jan. 19. His third-year average is down slightly from his second-year average of 47% and much lower than his first-year average of 57%.

Obama’s third-year average is based on approximately 175,000 interviews with U.S. adults conducted between Jan. 20, 2011 — the second anniversary of his inauguration — and Jan. 19, 2012.

Obama’s job approval rating during his third year in office had its ups and downs, peaking at 53% in May and falling as low as 38% in August and October.

As the Lonely Conservative says regarding Obama’s continuous low polling, they must all be racists. However, when a President promises hope & change and only provided no jobs, Obamacare, out of control spending, federal debt as far as the eye can see, what else would one suspect? That does not even include the partisan party politics Obama played by nixing the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have created the tens of thousands of US jobs and the expected high gas prices we will see in 2012.

      the polls only prove that 44% of those answering are idiots. That’s scary.

      According to the Rasmussen Report, “The One” is actually lower with a 22% positive approval rating whereas 39% strongly disapprove of his performance.

      What I’d like to know is, what exactly, are the 22% approving of?
