CNN Poll: Barack Obama Approval Rating Falls to 45% Amid Continuous Scandals


Don’t look now but Nixon’s Obama’s approval ratings are tanking amid scandals.

According to a recent CNN poll. President Barack Obama’s approval rating has sunk to 45% while 54% disapprove of his handling of his job. It is his lowest rating in a year and a half. So why the free-fall? Can you say scandals and the fact that the American people are being to not only lose trust in government, but specifically lose trust in Obama. The scandals are starting to catch up with Obama and how could they not? With Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen, NSA, the State Department and lest we forget Fast and Furious, it is simply amazing his approval rating is at 45%. Obama also go low marks on handling the economy and the federal budget. Also, as reported at the Politico, for the first time in his presidency, the poll also found less than half of respondents believed Obama was honest. In all, the poll showed Obama to be a complete failure.


Full poll can be read HERE (pdf).

The president’s approval rating stands at 45%, down from 53% in mid-May. And 54% say they disapprove of how Obama’s handling his job, up nine points from last month. It’s the first time in CNN polling since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have had a negative view of the president.

“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

The president also dropped 10 points among independent voters, from 47% last month to 37% now, with Obama’s disapproval among independents jumping 12 points to 61%.

•49% of respondents say Obama is honest/trustworthy, a big drop from 58% in the last reading.
Among those aged under 30, Obama has seen a 17% (!) drop in approval.

More from The Politico, Obama losing support from Independents and the youth vote.

The drop in support for Obama was especially steep among young voters and independents. With voters ages 18 to 29, Obama’s approval numbers dropped 17 points, according to CNN’s polling director. Among voters ages 18-34, 48 percent approved of the job Obama is doing and 50 percent disapproved.

      Tyrannical organizations only care about their own hierarchy
      to the exclusion of non-members. That essentially leaves the
      bulk of citizens out-of-the-loop of considerations in the end
      game. To gain total control, the ‘tyranny organizers’ must pay
      off the walking dead (think useful idiots that cannot see what’s
      coming down the road) with their own wealth. The victim idiots
      are unable to extrapolate this outcome until it is too late.

      Time’s almost up. Obama has lost serious ground in nearly every aspect of that CNN poll from earlier this year. At the rate he’s fading he’ll be in the low 30′s by Labor Day.

      It is the 45% that still thinks that he is doing a great job…. no he is not going any where, he still has a long way to go to destroy America. I went on Debbie Wasserman’s website and it is like a shrine……. all his devoting followers. They are so ignorant and they cannot see through her lies. Everything is the GOP and the Tea Parties fault. I had to laugh at all the nonsense she posts on her website. Can you imagine Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wassermann for 2016……… God forbid us!!!!!!!!!

      here is what obamacare brings wife has been a nurse at her clinic for 16 years. last night,a new graduate doctor saw a young girl, very sick young girl. she was taking 100 breaths a minute. doctor discharges her with a cold, girl collapses in the parking lot after my wife advises her mother to take her to the nearest children’s medical ctr. my wife confronted both doctors who then proceeded to lie with every breath.
      had my wife not advised this mother to take her daughter to the emergency room, this child might have died. many will die under obamacare and this is their plan. we have murderers running our country now so protect yourselves as the government continues it’s war on real Americans.
