Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is widely considered the front-runner for the Democrat nomination for President in 2016 and many believe the next President of the United States. However, the same could be said to be true in 2008 when from out of no where an unqualified, novice Senator from Illinois defeated her in the primaries. A new WSJ/NBC poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers have slipped a bit as 46% view her positively and 33% view her in a negative light. Her positive rating is down 10% from April. As Obama’s poll numbers plummet, Hillary’s appear to be sliding as well.
What difference does it make that I failed on the International stage in Benghazi and four Americans died?
Hillary Clinton’s public image has slumped in recent months, with younger voters, Democrats and independents taking a less enthusiastic view of her, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows.
Overall, 46% registered a positive view of the ex-secretary of state, compared to 33% who expressed a negative opinion. As recently as April, 56% saw Mrs. Clinton in a positive light.
Mrs. Clinton has not yet declared her intentions in the 2016 presidential race, but if she runs she would be the solid front-runner in the Democratic field, public polling has shown.
From The Politico, Hillary Clinton is losing ground with young voters.
The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.
Obviously Hillary Clinton is the front-runner for 2016 as she has the greatest name recognition; however, she does face several obstacles that could be her undoing.
- Because Hillary Clinton has such name recognition and is a known commodity, very few are going to have no opinion or not know they name so she has very little upside in undecided individuals.
- Hillary Clinton is considered part of the “Washington establishment” and by the time 2016 rolls around the American people may be beyond completely fed up with Washington “insiders”.
- After 8 years of Barack Obama and an exasperated America, the voters may just be exhausted of having a Democrat in the White House.
- If Obamacare continues to be the disaster that it is and implodes as the model is pretty much unsustainable the Americans are going to be in no mood for Hillary Healthcare either.
- Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi … when the truth comes out and it will come out, it will be damning for Hillary Clinton. She is going to rue the day she made the comment, “What difference does it make … “ She is going to be savaged in the debates and going to have to answer for Benghazi and why she turned a deaf ear to warnings and requests for more security.
- Obama Fatigue and he may be so unpopular and toxic at that point that it taints her run.
- The outcome of the 2014 elections.
- If the economy continues to stink, pathetic job growth, low employment participation rate, record federal debt and record food stamp participants, America is going to want a change of parties at the top.
- Did we say Benghazi?
- Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016 and is there that young Democrat candidate that we have not even heard of yet that will steal her thunder as Obama did in 2008?
How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.

Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
Obamacare Operator Erling Davis Fired After Taking Call From Hannity … Operator Says No Really Likes Obamacare (Update: Hannity To Pay Her a Year’s Salary)
Looks like some one has finally been fired for Obamacare and its not HHS Sec. Sebelius. Obamacare operator fired for being honest with Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity …
Sean Hannity called in to the Obamacare call center and after several minutes of waiting got through to an Obamacare operator. Hannity spoke to Erling Davis for nearly 10 minutes about Obamacare and got some surprisingly honest answers. When asked by Hannity whether she had got anybody on the phone that really likes Obamacare, she responded, “Umm, no, not really”. It looks like there is consequences in the United States for “free speech” as for her efforts, operator Erling Davis was fired for her actions.
It is actually phenomenal to think that Erling was the only person fired after all the glitches, tech problems and failures of the Obamacare website. Rather unreal if you think about it, isn’t it? So thanks to Obamacare, another person has been added to the unemployment line.
HANNITY: They’re really telling you to tell us to check back in on the website in off-hours. Does that mean that I should go on at like three in the morning?
OPERATOR: It was saying early in the morning and late at night, but some people say they do that and still can’t get in.
HANNITY: So people are reporting to you the real deal?
OPERATOR: Yes sir, they are.
HANNITY: Have you ever got anybody that really likes it yet?
OPERATOR: Umm, no, not really.
Tonight Sean Hannity had Erline Davis on his television program.
He offered her a check to cover her salary for a year.
He also set up a hotline to help Earline find another job.
If you want to help Erline Davis get a job or give her well wished email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Barack Obama, the food stamp president, it appears the program is rife with fraud.
CAN YOU SAY FOOD STAMP FRAUD? Isn’t this special, as the United States has record number of people on food stamps it appears that many are turning the government hand out and your tax dollars into a way to make some quick cash on Craigslist. Food stamps are not supposed to be transferred or resold, and the Craigslist’s policy actually lists them among the items that are not allowed to be sold or bartered on their web site. However, unless some one flags them, they claim they can do little. Seriously? A web site does not even monitor itself? One can imagine that the fraud and abuse is rampant withing this government hand out program if individuals are so brazen to sell them on a public website like Craigslist. But the question is, how can something so easy to be researched not being cracked down on by the feds? One can only imagine why individuals want cash for something that is intended to by food. How about Congress pass a law that says the punishment for reselling food stamps in 10 to 15 years in prison? I bet that would stop a lot of this nonsense.
Imagine the amount of money that the American tax payers could be saved if the feds actually went after fraud and abuse?
Food stamp recipients are turning the government handouts into quick cash with ads on Craigslist, despite efforts to stem fraud.
The federally-funded grocery assistance coupons — which are issued by states in the form of debit cards under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — are being sold on the online bulletin board as well as auction sites like eBay. FoxNews.com found several offerings at Craigslist sites around the country, where the sellers offered the welfare benefits at large discounts from face value.
“If you need food. This is not a gimmick or game,” read one posting from Philadelphia. “Please let me know, I have food stamps for sale….. Serious Replies only!!!”
“I have $500 worth and it costs $350 cash. No I will not do half!” read another posting from the Atlanta area. “I don’t need to sell. If you would like to get an extra $150 to $175 in grocery and pay no taxes and can see the benefit that you will still be saving then email me or call me and we can arrange the whole deal as soon as you like.”
EXIT QUESTION: How about the government actually crack down on fraud and abuse rather than always asking for an increase in taxes?
CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo Says ObamaCare Forcing America to Become a Part-Time Employment Country as Businesses Shift to Part-Time Workers
The heck with the Obamacare website glitches, Obamacare has much worse consequences on America and Americans … Obamacare is a full-time job killer.
CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo said on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that “ObamaCare is forcing businesses to shift to part-time workers.” She went on to say that America was “becoming something of a part-time employment country.” However, no one in the MSM wants to address the fact that Obama’s signature piece of legislation is causing American workers to lose their full-time jobs. Isn’t that special, in order for a small minority of people to have access to insurance, all Americans are forced to buy insurance or else pay a tax, and workers are losing money in their pay checks as businesses shift to a part-time work model. Thanks Barack Obama.
Intentional or irony … Obama’s signature piece of legislation kills FT jobs and affects the middle class, the very people he claims to be for? Is it any wonder why Obama is the worst jobs president in modern times.
Maria Bartiromo is sadly100% correct. Check out Zero Hedge, where of the 953,000 jobs created in 2013, 77%, or 731,000 are part-time ones. Many businesses are are now only hiring PT employees in order to avoid Obamacare or are shifting those that were full-time to part-time. Who didn’t see that coming?
Tavis Smiley: ‘Black People Will Have Lost Ground in Every Single Economic Indicator’ Under Barack Obama
Finally some one in the liberal black community is admitting the truth, Barack Obama has been a nightmare for blacks.
During an interview on Fox News’s ‘Hannity,’ PBS’s Tavis Smiley said the following, “The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category” There you have it, blacks who voted for Obama 95% in 2008 and 93% in 2012, have been sold a bill of goods and received nothing for their vote but food stamps. So why would African-Americans have voted in such large numbers for a president who has failed them incredibly? Could it possibly be that the liberal MSM and black leaders have refused to tell them the truth that Obama has been their worst nightmare? What would the liberal media be reporting if blacks had lost ground in every single economic indicator, if the president was white?
From News Busters:
SEAN HANNITY, HOST: My last question to you. You often do these seminars with the state of black America. I’ve watched them on C-Span and different channels, right?
TAVIS SMILEY: Right.
HANNITY: Are black Americans better off five years into the Obama presidency?
SMILEY: Let me answer your question very forthrightly. No, they are not. The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category. On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible.
But here’s the other side. I respect the president. I will protect the president. And I will correct the president. He’s right on this government shutdown. Republicans are thwarting the rule of law with the Constitution. If they let this debt go into default, they’re trampling again on the Constitution.
When will minorities ever wake up, but that’s right, it’s all Republicans fault.
Obamanomics: People in Poverty Up 6,667,000 … Record 46,496,000 Now Poor … Median Income Down Nearly 5% to $2,627
Hey America, hoes that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for you?
Thanks to President Barack Obama and his disastrous economic policy, median income is down 4.89% or $2627 and poverty is up to a record 46,496,000. But Barack Obama will tell you he is for the little guy and the middle class. Sure he is. What a disaster this man has been to the United States and its people. It is going to take decades for this country to undo the damage he and Democrats have done. It is mind boggling how he was ever reelected with such a totally epic failure of the economy, jobs and, unemployment.
During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to data released today by the Census Bureau.
The record total of approximately 46,496,000 people in the United States who are now in poverty, according to the Census Bureau, is more than twice the population of Syria, which, according to the CIA, has 22,457,336 people.
In 2008, the year Obama was elected, real median household income in the United States was $53,644 according to the Census Bureau. In 2012, the last full year of Obama’s first term, median household income was $51,017. Thus, real median household income dropped $2,627—or 4.89 percent—from 2008 to 2012.
Please wake the hell up America and vote
Illigal Immigrant “Undocumented” Los Angeles County Parents On Pace To Receive $650M In Welfare Benefits
Are you serious … doing the jobs that Americans are just unwilling to do …
Simply incredible and no one cares … Undocumented Los Angeles County parents on pace to receive $650M in Welfare Benefits. It is only going to get worse when they open the flood gates of amnesty of illegals. This represents just one county in California, can you imagine what is going to happen when they are all made legal? As stated at Powerline, such a massive influx would bankrupt the welfare system and most likely America.
A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced the latest figures from the Department of Public Social Services, which showed more than $376 million in CalWORKs benefits and food stamps combined have been distributed through July to illegal alien parents for their native-born children.
Approximately $54 million in welfare payments are issued each month, consisting of nearly $20 million in CalWORKs and $34 million in food stamp issuances, according to the data.
An estimated 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid in Los Angeles County, according to Antonovich, who said this year’s projections — up about $1 million from the nearly $53 million in total benefits issued in July 2012 — underscore the economic impact of the nation’s immigration debate.
Another Defeat for Obama … Larry Summers Withdraws Name from Consideration as Chairman of the Federal Reserve
Larry Summers, Barack Obama’s preferred choice to head the Federal Reserve withdraws his name for consideration for Fed chair. Former U.S. Treasury Secretary and Harvard President Summers called President Obama to announce the withdrawn his name for consideration to succeed Ben Bernanke as Federal Reserve chairman. Obama accepted his resignation.
For Lawrence H. Summers, President Obama’s preferred candidate to lead the Federal Reserve, the messy debate over a military attack in Syria was the final sign.
After weeks of opposition to his candidacy from an array of progressives, the president’s inability to rally Congressional Democrats on Syria persuaded Mr. Summers that his most important audience — the Senate, which must confirm a Fed chairman — probably could not be won over.
He concluded that the White House was also unlikely to overcome opposition to his candidacy from many of the same Democrats, who view him as an opponent of stronger financial regulation, according to supporters who insisted on anonymity to describe confidential conversations with him.
“Clearly Obama couldn’t bring his own most enthusiastic supporters to back him on an issue of national security,” one supporter said. “How was he going to corral them for Larry?”
And like with a military strike on Syria, it was not the GOP that doomed Summers with his chances to become FED chair, it was the Democrat opposition. Summers got no love from Democrats and even less support from Obama who failed to convince Congress that Summers should be the next Fed chair.
Larry Summers on Sunday withdrew his name from consideration as chairman of the Federal Reserve, a defeat for President Barack Obama — who could not convince members of his own party to shelve their opposition to his former top economic adviser.
Summers, who previously served as Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, director of the National Economic Council and president of Harvard, notified President Barack Obama of his decision with a phone call Sunday morning
Another Disasterous Obama Jobs Report: Only 169,000 New Jobs Created in August …Jule & July Revised Down by 74K Jobs … Black Unemplyment Up to 13% … Labor Participation Rate Falls to 5 Year Low of 63.2%
No wonder Barack Obama wants to start a war in Syria … have you taken a look at the miserable jobs report from yesterday thanks to Obamanomicis and Obama’s failed jobs recover?
Yesterday’s jobs report for August 2013 could not have been more miserable. The unemployment rate fell from dropped from 7.4% to 7.3%, but for all the wrong reasons. A pathetic 169,000 jobs were created in August 2013, but it was the 35 year low of the labor participation rate that actually caused the unemployment rate to drop. Americans are literally giving up and have stopped looking for jobs and no longer counted in the unemployment numbers, To make matters worse, the jobs data was revised downward by a total of 74,000 jobs for June and July 2013. The numbers for teenagers, blacks and Hispanics are a disaster. Among teenagers, the unemployment rate is 22.7%; for African Americans, it’s 13%; for Hispanics, 9.3%.
Obama and Obamanomics has been an “Epic Failure”. But if you want to be on welfare and food stamps, he’s your man.
America, you voted this failed President back in for a second term, why?
“The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for June was revised from +188,000 to +172,000, and the change for July was revised from +162,000 to +104,000.” That means we added 74,000 fewer jobs than we thought in June and July.
CNS News: 90,473,000: Record Number Not in Labor Force–Up Almost 10M Under Obama.
The number of Americans who are 16 years or older and who have decided not to participate in the nation’s labor force has pushed past 90,000,000 for the first time, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS counts a person as participating in the labor force if they are 16 years or older and either have a job or have actively sought a job in the last four weeks. A person is not participating in the labor force if they are 16 or older and have not sought a job in the last four weeks.
In July, according to BLS, 89,957,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force. In August, that climbed to 90,473,000–a one month increase of 516,000.
Bureau of Labor Statistics report report (age, gender, race, etc.) the unemployment rate among blacks increased the most – almost a full half-point, from 12.6% to 13%.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men(7.1 percent), adult women (6.3 percent), teenagers (22.7 percent),whites (6.4 percent), blacks (13.0 percent), and Hispanics (9.3percent) showed little change in August. The jobless rate for Asianswas 5.1 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
Other disastrous jobs data from the worst president ever. Obama claims he is for the middle class, yet has only benefited the top 5%. The very people who voted for Obama, blacks and young voters, have been the most adversely affected by his poor economy policies.
