WHEN IT ALL ENDS OBAMA WILL BE THE WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY …
According to the most recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama’s “strongly disapproval” rating is more than double that of his “strong approval” one. Republicans have gone from 58% strongly disapprove in 2009 to 75% strongly disapprove in 2014. However, the real story may be in the disillusionment of Democrats. In 2009, 65% of Democrats had a strong approval of the Obamamessiah but in 2004 that percentage has dropped to 38%. It would appear that Barack Obama was not the one that they had been waiting for.
Americans are more than twice as likely to say they “strongly disapprove” (39%) of President Barack Obama’s job performance as they are to say they “strongly approve” (17%). The percentage of Americans who strongly disapprove of Obama has increased over time, while the percentage who strongly approve has dropped by almost half.
In the first year of Obama’s presidency, the percentages of Americans who had strong views about the job he was doing were essentially tied, but the strongly negative responses now significantly outweigh the strongly positive ones. The largest segment of Americans today, 39%, strongly disapprove of Obama’s job performance, while 14% moderately disapprove. Another 27% moderately approve, while 17% strongly approve.
Strong disapproval of the president’s job performance has been within 30% to 39% the four times Gallup has asked the question — in 2009, 2010, 2011, and now this year — but has risen by five percentage points since 2011, and by nine points since the first month Obama was in office. At the same time, strong approval has fallen by nine points in the last three years, and by 15 points since January 2009.
