Harvard Poll: Millennial Voters Turn on Barack Obama and Democrats, Young Voters To Vote GOP over Dems 51% to 47%
Millennial Voters Abandon Barack Obama and his lies of “Hope and Change”.
My how times have changed, especially when Millennial finally realized they were duped by Barack Obama who has done little for hope and change, transparency or to change anything in Washington, DC except make things worse. Barack Obama and Democrats have lost the “Millennial Vote”. A shocking Harvard University poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds showed that they will be“definitely be voting,” 51% want the Republicans in charge, while 47% are favoring Democratic control. According to the poll, Democrats are even losing ground with Hispanics as well. How bad is it for Democrats when Millennials abandon Democratic sinking ship.
And you wonder why Democrat candidates are avoiding the “toxic” president and can not even find it in themselves to even say they have voted for him, when they obviously had. If all of this polling does turn out to be correct, the Democrats could be experiencing a colossal disaster election eve.
Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever.
A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.
The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out, “How did the Democrats and Obama screw this up?”
Because the numbers are close, however, Harvard said the kid vote is “up for grabs.”
Still, it is a huge shift from the last IOP midterm poll. In 2010, younger voters kept to their historic trend with 55 percent favoring Democrats, 43 percent Republicans. That is an eight-point change, very good news for the Republicans who had feared that the Obama generation would show up at the polls and in knee-jerk fashion simply pull the Democratic levers.
The shift away from Democrats is likely fed by the millennial dissatisfaction with Obama. The poll from IOP, located at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Mass., found their approval of Obama near the low-water mark, at just 43 percent. It dipped below, to 41 percent, just once.
Harvard University Institute of Politics: More damning poll numbers for Democrats from one of their core constituencies.
President Obama’s Job Approval Rating Decreases, Nears Low-Water mark.
Overall, President Obama’s job performance among America’s 18-29 year-olds has fallen from 47% (April 2014) to 43 percent (53%: disapprove), the second-lowest rating in the IOP polls since he took office (41%: November 2013). Among 18-29 year-olds saying they will “definitely be voting in November,” the president’s job approval rating is 42 percent, with 56% saying they disapprove.
Hispanic Support for President Obama is Weakening.
Support for the president among young Hispanics, who just two years ago supported Obama over Mitt Romney by 51-points (74% to 23%), appears to be weakening. The president’s job approval rating among Hispanics now sits at the lowest since the IOP began tracking the administration in 2009, with only 49 percent saying they approve (46% disapprove) – a significant drop from six months ago among the young Hispanic community (60%: April 2014) and a sharp slide from five years ago (81%: November 2009).
State Department Memo Shows Barack Obama Administration Going to Move Non-Anmerican Ebola Victims to United States
As reported at Special Report, FOX News obtained a State Department memo showing the Obama administration is planning on moving infected Ebola patients to the United States. UNBELIEVABLE. This joke of an administration would bring Ebola infected patients to a country that had no Ebola and had no real policies and procedures in how to deal with it? Exactly who is Barack Obama the president for and what oath of office did he actually take? How could anyone allow non-Americans into the United States to be treated? Haven’t they told us that the only way to protect America was to handle it over there?
OBAMA, YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, NOT THE WORLD!!! THIS MAN IS LITERALLY TRYING TO RUIN AND BANKRUPT THIS COUNTRY. WHO KNEW OBAMACARE COVERED HEALTHCARE FOR NON-AMERICANS.
A memo obtained by Fox News indicates the Obama administration has been considering allowing non-American Ebola patients into the U.S. for treatment – though a State Department official on Tuesday denied any such plans.
The document was obtained by Fox News from a Capitol Hill source, who said it is a memo prepared by the State Department. The top of the document is marked “sensitive but unclassified – predesicional (sic).”
The “purpose” of the memo states: “Come to an agreed State Department position on the extent to which non-U.S. citizens will be admitted to the United States for treatment of Ebola Virus Disease.”
The document goes on to discuss – and advocate for — devising such a plan. The memo recommends that “State and DHS devise a system for expeditious parole of Ebola-infected non-citizens into the United States as long as they are otherwise eligible for medical evacuation from the Ebola affected countries and for entry into the United States.”
SNL Mocks Barack Obama & His Ebola Czar Ron Klain: Some People Want to Criticize how We have Handled Ebola. It was no way as Bad as How We Handled ISIS Situation …
For years SNL protected Obama and claimed there was nothing funny about him, not any longer … “This whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments …”
Last nights Saturday Night Live opened with a skit ripping President Barack Obama’s handling of the Ebola virus and his pick of political operative Ron Klain as Ebola czar. The reality is, the skit was reiterating facts and the audience laughed as if it was a punchline. You know it is bad for Obama when even the libs at SNL are mocking him for his clueless ineptitude of handling Ebola and then even referencing other screw ups like the IRS and NSA scandals and the Obamacare website roll out debacle. However, this joke has been a reality to many who have been affected by these scandals. Interestingly enough, SNL did not quite mention all scandals like Fast & Furious and Benghazi-gate where Americans actually died. I guess that wouldn’t be funny, would it?
Welcome to the joke that is the Obama presidency … six years later, it is not very funny to most Americans.
“I assure you, it was nowhere near as bad as how we handled the ISIS situation. Or our various Secret Service mishaps. Or the scandals of the IRS and NSA and I don’t know if you guys remember, but the ObamaCare Website had some pretty serious problems, too. In fact, if you look at all the stuff that’s happened in my second term, this whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments.”
A journalist next pressed Klain to admit “you have no actual medical training or background in dealing with infectious disease.”
Later in the skit, Obama introduces his political operative Ebola czar Ron Klain, who had some words of wisdom for the worried Democrats ahead of the midterm elections for those who may or may not be affected by Ebola.
“The Ebola virus actually flourishes in warmer climates,” so “if you live in a southern state, such as Louisiana, Arkansas, or Kentucky, you actually may want to avoid any large public spaces like, say, a polling booth.” An “exception, however, is that we believe Latinos in red states may actually have an immunity to Ebola.”
YAWN … My how the mighty have fallen, it would appear many folks have lost that Obama Luvin’ feeling and are just bored to tears with Him.
Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington for Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for governor. Ever wonder why President Barack Obama has been AWOL from the campaign trail in 2014, well wonder no more. As Obama begged the audience for their vote, a steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke. OUCH, That’s going to leave a mark. Walking out on the Obamamessiah, The One? Hmm, weren’t there articles just wrote on the importance of the “black” vote in 2014? If energizing the base means the audience leaving as Obama speaks, voting turnout may be a real issue in 2014 for Democrats.
The American Thinker makes a very important point, “There is no recovery possible from boring. Once you are tuned-out, you have lost the possibility of revival.” After a while, with the same old false promises, Obama just sounds like Charlie Browns teacher, even to his biggest supporters.
President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.
With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.
Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.
Barack Obama Weekly Address: What You Need to Know About Ebola … Good Grief, Community Organizer Compares Ebola to the Flu
Barack Obama tells America in his weekly Address what you need to know about the Ebola … “If you like your Ebola, you can keep your Ebola.”
This is what happens when you elect a community organizer, a divider and a person who makes everything political, including the safeguarding of America president. Barack Obama has been a failure with the economy, failure with reducing the national debt, failure with Obamacare, failure with foreign policy in the Middle East (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Egypt and Iran to name a few), failure in dealing with Russia, failure in securing our Southern border with Mexico, failure to improve race relations in the US, failure with ISIS and has had so many scandals that Richard Nixon looks like a choir boy. The scandals include Fast and Furious, Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, AP-gate, James Rosen-gate, Eric Holder perjury. Its reads like an Obama scandal list from A to Z.
Now we are supposed to trust Obama and his cronies with Ebola. Maybe they can do better than the role out of the Healthcare.gov website. During his Weekly Address, this fool actually made the comparison of flu deaths to Ebola. Obama stated, “As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu. Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu.” Wow genius, really? You would dare reference Ebola and the flu in the same breath? However, Barack Obama is failing to mention that the death rate in the Ebola epidemic has risen to 70%, up from 50%. But Obama wont talk about those facts.
The World Health Organization (WHO) made the announcement at a news conference in Geneva, where officials said there could be up to 10,000 new cases of the virus every week within two months.
Weekly Address Transcript: [comments below in blue, editorial notes]
Today, I want to take a few minutes to speak with you-directly and clearly-about Ebola: [From the president who brought us, if you like your doctor and healthcare plan, you can keep your doctor and healthcare plan, period!] what we’re doing about it, and what you need to know . Because meeting a public health challenge like this isn’t just a job for government. All of us-citizens, leaders, the media-have a responsibility and a role to play. This is a serious disease, but we can’t give in to hysteria or fear-because that only makes it harder to get people the accurate information they need. We have to be guided by the science. We have to remember the basic facts. [When has the Obama administrations ever cared about the facts?]
First, what we’re seeing now is not an “outbreak” or an “epidemic” of Ebola in America. [No, we have two infected nurses and one dead individual from Liberia and too many others who have been exposed to these 3 people]. We’re a nation of more than 300 million people. To date, we’ve seen three cases of Ebola diagnosed here-the man who contracted the disease in Liberia [and was sent home from the hospital the first time], came here [a Liberian man, Thomas Eric Duncan, who lied on his flight questionnaire and came to the US knowing he had been exposed to Ebola]. and sadly died; the two courageous nurses who were infected [one was blamed by the CDC director for not following protocol, the other was allowed to get on a plane with a low grade fever by the CDC and thus exposing others to the disease]. while they were treating him. Our thoughts and our prayers are with them, and we’re doing everything we can to give them the best care possible. Now, even one infection is too many. At the same time, we have to keep this in perspective. As our public health experts point out, every year thousands of Americans die from the flu. [Are you kidding that this moron is making comparisons between the flu and Ebola?]
Second, Ebola is actually a difficult disease to catch. It’s not transmitted through the air like the flu. You cannot get it from just riding on a plane or a bus. The only way that a person can contract the disease is by coming into direct contact with the bodily fluids of somebody who is already showing symptoms. [BS ... Ebola is not AIDS. You can get Ebola from bodily fluids like sweat and saliva left on a plane or bus seat, railing, surface. Also, if some one coughs, sneezes or slits and fluid comes out] I’ve met and hugged some of the doctors and nurses who’ve treated Ebola patients. I’ve met with an Ebola patient who recovered, right in the Oval Office. And I’m fine. [Obama, you are far from fine, but that is a whole other story. Maybe we should make Barack Obama the official greeter at the airport for all peoples coming from West Africa Ebola riddled countries?]
Third, we know how to fight this disease. We know the protocols. [Really, then why did the CDC just change the protocols?] And we know that when they’re followed, they work. So far, five Americans who got infected with Ebola in West Africa have been brought back to the United States-and all five have been treated safely, without infecting healthcare workers.
And this week, at my direction [me, me, me, me], we’re stepping up our efforts. Additional CDC personnel are on the scene in Dallas and Cleveland. We’re working quickly to track and monitor anyone who may have been in close contact with someone showing symptoms. We’re sharing lessons learned [How in the hell did they not have lessons learned from treating Ebola in West Africa?] so other hospitals don’t repeat the mistakes that happened in Dallas. The CDC’s new Ebola rapid response teams will deploy quickly [You mean we already did not have one like in the movie, 'Outbreak'?] to help hospitals implement the right protocols. New screening measures are now in place at airports that receive nearly all passengers arriving from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone [The same similar screenings that would have still allowed Thomas Eric Duncan into the United States]. And we’ll continue to constantly review our measures, and update them as needed, to make sure we’re doing everything we can to keep Americans safe.
WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble
HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?
According to the most recent WAPO-ABC News poll, Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with an approval rating at 40% and a 51% disapproval. Actually, it is curious as to why it is not even lower. Among Independents, Obama only has a 33% approval. Under Obama’s watch, everything is a colossal disaster. Nothing is going good in the United States or around the world.
The US economy is a floundering mess, illegal immigration, ISIS is on the rise and now we have the October surprise of Ebola in the United States. Barack Obama polls poorly on all major political issues as we are week’s ahead of the November midterm elections and early voting has begun in some states.
Can you say EPIC FAILURE!!!
Heading into the final weeks of the midterm campaign, the political landscape continues to tilt in favor of the Republican Party, with President Obama’s overall approval rating at the lowest level of his presidency and GOP voters signaling greater likelihood than Democrats that they will cast ballots, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Americans are looking to November and beyond with dissatisfaction about the state of the country and the political leadership in Washington. Two-thirds say the country is seriously off-track. And while more than 6 in 10 say the president lacks a clear plan for governing, …
See all polling data HERE.
The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.
Barack Obama and his political party are heading into the midterm elections in trouble. The president’s 40 percent job approval rating in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll is the lowest of his career – and the Democratic Party’s popularity is its weakest in polling back 30 years, with more than half of Americans seeing the party unfavorably for the first time.
The Republican Party is even more unpopular. But benefitting from their supporters’ greater likelihood of voting, GOP candidates nonetheless hold a 50-43 percent lead among likely voters for U.S. House seats in the Nov. 4 election.

YES IT IS NUTS … Salon Interview Compares Death of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown to the Symbolic Killing of Barack Obama
This might be the most colossally ignorant, foolish and ridiculous conclusion ever …
An author schilling his book in a Salon interview, whose name and title of book will go unnamed for obvious “moonbat” reasons, stated during an entirely too long diatribe that some how the killings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were some how a symbolic killing of Barack Obama. HUH? The dimwitted individual said the following, “But I don’t think it’s nuts that in a certain way, when that cop killed Michael Brown, and when George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, they were killing Barack Obama.” Wrong Keebler, it is not only NUTS, it is frigging INSANE. The intellectually challenged author claims that there has been a rise in racism because of Obama being called names and how he was treated. I guessed he must have missed the George W. Bush years when he was called everything from stupid to Hitler. You also must have missed the 2006 movie, “Death of a President,” where Bush is assassinated by a sniper after making a speech in Chicago in October 2007. Hmm … what would you call that GENIUS?
The LEFT continues it’s lame defense of Obama as racism.
But with Barack Obama, racism has become ordinary discourse since his election in a way that it wasn’t before, and the contempt and the ridicule with which Republicans treat him. Not even Bill Clinton, who they felt they could disparage because they thought he was a dumb white cracker, not even Bill Clinton has been treated the way Barack Obama has been treated. He’s been treated as if he’s an impostor, an interloper and as scum.
I mean, the things that have been said about Michelle Obama, the way she’s talked about on Fox News, you know, forget about Twitter or comments on news stories or anything like that where all the morons live, but the way she’s been talked about, can you imagine Laura Bush ever being talked about that way? Laura Bush actually killed somebody. But that was never mentioned, that was never talked about, because it was impolite to bring it up.
Anyway, don’t let me go on like this. But, yeah, yeah. And when you look at the things … when you look at the murder of Trayvon Martin, when you look at the murder of Michael Brown, when you look at those situations, it’s not unrelated to Obama being president, but it’s more the way in which the country has reframed itself or rewritten itself since his election, with all kinds of people saying to themselves, maybe never putting it into words, just feeling it, “There’s a f*cking n—er in the White House? Well f*ck you, n—er, whoever you are.” And an inchoate loathing and hatred that seeks out its targets.
I’m not a psychiatrist, I haven’t sat down and interviewed George Zimmerman or the cop who shot Michael Brown, I don’t know what their motives are, I don’t know what kind of people they are, what kind of childhood traumas they have experienced. But I don’t think it’s nuts that in a certain way, when that cop killed Michael Brown, and when George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, they were killing Barack Obama.
EXIT COMMENT TO MOONBAT AUTHOR … It would appear that a majority of Americans think Barack Obama is a failure, many of which most likely voted for him in 2008 and 2012. Even USA Today’s Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page stated over the weekend on “Face the nation’ that “a lot of Americans have that the world is not only a dangerous place but that government is not competent to handle it. […] I think that is a very dangerous thing for President Obama. The sense that his administration is not competent to protect the American people that is the most fundamental job of a US president. I think it is a big factor in the midterm elections.”
MORE FROM THE MOST TRANSPARANT WHITE HOUSE EVER: What a shock, The Obama White House knew … Let’s add one more scandal to the Obama presidency.
Courtesy of the WAPO, the White House told us prior to the 2012 election that there was no one involved with the WH advance team involved in the prostitution scandal in Colombia in 2012. we were told it was just Secret Service and military individuals involved. White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member. It gets even better, the lead investigator into the Secret Service prostitution scandal told Senate staffers that he was directed to delay the release of the report until after the 2012 election.
Jay the Carney states to media that there was no evidence of misconduct by White House advance team, hmm … really?
As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that anyone from the White House was involved.
The information that the Secret Service shared with the White House included hotel records and firsthand accounts — the same types of evidence the agency and military relied on to determine who in their ranks was involved.
The Secret Service shared its findings twice in the weeks after the scandal with top White House officials, including then-White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler. Each time, she and other presidential aides conducted an interview with the advance-team member and concluded that he had done nothing wrong.
Meanwhile, the new details also show that a separate set of investigators in the inspector general’s office of the Department of Homeland Security — tasked by a Senate committee with digging more deeply into misconduct on the trip — found additional evidence from records and eyewitnesses who had accompanied the team member in Colombia.
The lead investigator later told Senate staffers that he felt pressure from his superiors in the office of Charles K. Edwards, who was then the acting inspector general, to withhold evidence — and that, in the heat of an election year, decisions were being made with political considerations in mind.
“We were directed at the time .?.?. to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.
Nieland added that his superiors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”
Former Defense & CIA Director Leon Panetta Says … From Beginning, I Thought Benghazi Was a “Terrorist Attack”
Former Defense & CIA Director Leon Panetta in an interview with NBC Today stated that from the beginning, he thought the attack on the Benghazi consulate on September 11, 2012 was a “Terrorist Attack”. But of course that did not go along with Barack Obama’s reelection narrative that Al-Qaeda was on the run. Instead, Obama and his minions would blame the attack on a video. Lately, Panetta has been highly critical of Obama. It is just too bad he did not speak up or resign at the time out of principle. But as Panaetta’s buddy Hillary Clinton says, “What difference does it make?”
“You know, I didn’t have any specific information but, the fact was, when you bring grenade launchers to a demonstration there’s something else going on. And, I just from the very beginning sensed that this was an attack. This was a terrorist attack.”

Judge Jeanine Pirro Opening Statement on Ebola In The US … “Really, Another Countries Economy is not the Criteria as to Whether We Put Our Families ar Risk”
I agree with Judge Jeanine 100% …
From ‘Justice’ with Judge Jeanine, this is a much watch VIDEO commentary. Judge Jeanine is at her best. Who at this point really trusts out government to be honest with us? When will this president understand that it is his job to protect Americans, not the world! Who trusts our government when they say the chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States is low? As Judge Jeanine Pirro aptly states and reminds us, right, and you can keep your doctor and healthcare plan too, Al-Qaeda is on the run and ISIS is not Islamic.
Ebola, what a mess.
No one, and I mean no one should be allowed to enter the United States from any West African nation ravaged with Ebola. And any American citizen who goes there and wants to come home needs to be quarantined for 21 days until we figure out what we are doing.
Hmm, pretty amazing that the WAPO failes to mention that Obama was asleep at the switch. How long have we known about Ebola?
Shaken, he flew back to the United States on Aug. 31 and immediately briefed President Obama by phone. The window to act was closing, he told the president in the 15-minute call.
That conversation, nearly six months after the World Health Organization (WHO) learned of an Ebola outbreak in West Africa, was part of a mounting realization among world leaders that the battle against the virus was being lost. As of early September, with more than 1,800 confirmed Ebola deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, there was still no coordinated global response. Alarmed U.S. officials realized they would need to call in the military.
Obama eventually ordered 3,000 military personnel to West Africa; about 200 had arrived by the beginning of this month. They will be joined by health workers from countries such as Britain, China and Cuba. Canada and Japan are sending protective gear and mobile laboratories. Nonprofit organizations such as the Gates Foundation also are contributing. But it’s not at all clear that this belated muscular response will be enough to quell the epidemic before it takes tens of thousands of lives.
