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.

Obama_Worst President

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).

Jeb Bush Says Barack Obama ‘Incompetent’ on Ebola

JUST HIS INITIAL RESPONSE JEB?

Former Florida Governor and noncommittal 2016 GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush is calling our Barack Obama saying that his initial response to Ebola was “incompetent”. Jeb Bush made this comment as he was speaking in Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University on Tuesday. One might first say, what response? Second, one would say, just his initial response Jeb, Obama continues to act incompetently when it comes to Ebola and the risk he is putting America and Americans at. Third, isn’t it par for the course, pardon the pun, for Barack Obama to act incompetently? That has been the theme to his presidency.

Why was there no policy or plan in place to deal with Ebola?

Obama_misleader

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is calling President Barack Obama’s initial response to Ebola “incompetent.”

“It looked very incompetent to begin with, and that fueled fears that may not be justified,” Bush said during a discussion at Vanderbilt University, according to The Tennessean. “And now you have states that are legitimately acting on their concerns, creating a lot more confusion than is necessary.”

Bush said the president was not “clear and concise” about his plans to combat Ebola, and described an incident in which anthrax was mailed in 2001 to a Florida-based tabloid, The National Equirer, during his time in office as an example of a better approach to addressing public fears.

“We gave people a sense of calm, what the plan was,” Bush said. “We talked in plainspoken English. We were totally engaged.”

EXIT COMMENT: Who finds it ironic that Jeb Bush is calling Obama “incompetent” when for years it was Democrats who called Jeb’s brother, President George W. Bush stupid?

They’ve Lost that Luvin’ Feeling … Democrats Walk Out on Obama During Campaign Rally in Maryland

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 Appoints Political Hack and Spin Doctor Ron Klain as Ebola Czar … The Divider in Chief Strikes Again, “It’s a Political Move from Beginning to End”

SERIOUS SITUATIONS CALL FOR SERIOUS PEOPLE … NOT COMMUNITY AGITATORS PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS.

The Divider in Chief is at it again. Barack Obama announced that he was appointing partisan bureaucrat and spin doctor Ron Klain as Ebola Czar. As only a community agitator could do, Obama has taken a very serious situation and turned it into partisan politics as Liberals think it is a great idea while conservatives are do not and are much more skeptical. With no medical or public health experience experience what-so-ever, Ron Klain is a Washington insider hired more likely to help the Obama administration message, a.k.a. spin, Ebola and the debacle in hoe the Obama administrations handles it running up to the 2014 midterm elections.

President Obama’s choice of veteran Democratic politico Ron Klain to serve as Ebola czar stunned many Republicans. Their first objection is that Klain has no experience in public health or infectious diseases. But in a larger sense, GOP critics see Klain, a former chief of staff for Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, more as a political operative than a potential leader of the fight against Ebola.

What qualifies Klain for the job, the formal title of which is Ebola Response Coordinator? First, the White House makes no claim of any expertise in health matters. Instead, officials point to Klain’s impressive Washington resume — the jobs with Gore and Biden, plus chief of staff for Clinton administration Attorney General Janet Reno and top positions with Senate Democrats.

Charles Krauthammer’s made the following comments  during an appearance on Special Report with Bret Baier, where he called the Klain appointment for what it really was, a public relations move.

“I don’t think it’s going to make any difference one way or the other. Its a PR move from beginning to end. It gives the appearance of motion; this is what Obama specializes in. If you have a VA scandal, an IRS scandal, a Secret Service scandal, you fire the guy at the top so you have the appearance of motion; here you’re putting a guy in who’s supposedly going to coordinate.”

“There’s a quote in the New York Times about what Klain would do, and he said his job is ‘messaging.’ So we have a virus on the loose that turns your organs into liquid, and the answer is to appoint a guy to do the messaging.

UPDATE I: White House Ebola Czar Was ‘Key Player’ In Solyndra Scandal.

Oh wait, here is a qualification to be Ebola czar … was a “key player” in praising Solyndra to Obama and Biden, despite the red flags from auditors. Solyndra is now bankrupt. Can we really afford to have some one in charge of Ebola with such a lack of judgement?

Ron Klain, the newly appointed White House Ebola response coordinator, was one of the senior White House officials who advised that President Obama should visit solar power company Solyndra in 2011, despite an auditor raising red flags about the company’s finances.

According to The Washington Post, Klain was one of the “key players” in the scandal while he worked for Vice President Joe Biden: “Ron Klain, then Biden’s chief of staff, dismissed auditor’s concerns about Solyndra’s solvency, reasoning that all innovative companies come with risk.”

Another Solyndra email, reported by Fox News, indicated that Biden’s office were all fans of Solyndra, and that the staff “about had an orgasm” at the prospect of an Energy Department loan.

UPDATEI I: Can this appointment become any more of a joke? As it appears, Ron Klain will be reporting to former U.N. ambassador and current National Security Adviser Susan Rice. Yes, that same Susan Rice who lost all credibility by going on five network Sunday shows and lied that the terrorist Benghazi Consulate attack was the result of a video tape.

Barack Obama Plays 200th Round of Golf as the Second Ebola Case Emerges in Texas with Healthcare Worker Who Treated Thomas Eric Duncan

THIS PRESIDENT JUST DOES NOT GIVE A $HIT … 200th ROUND OF GOLF AFTER EBOLA PHOTO-OP.

As ‘We the People” of the United States of America learned that there was a second case of Ebola in Texas and the first ever transmitted case of Ebola in America, Barack Obama went golfing. Yup, after Americans learned that a female nurse who cared for and has extensive contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the individual who traveled to Dallas, Texas from Liberia who died from Ebola, had tested positive for Ebola … The Golfer in Chief once again went golfing for his 200th round since he became president. UNREAL. Obama just doesn’t care. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS MAN? Is he really that detached from reality that he does not comprehend that it is his role to protect America and Americans, not play golf?

Americans are wondering why flights to the US from Liberian are not being banned, nurses and healthcare workers are wondering why they are not being properly trained, I am wondering why those testing positive with Ebola are not sent to specific healthcare facilities that deal with Ebola and Obama plays golf.

Obama_golf2

After hearing the news shortly after midnight early Sunday morning that a second Ebola case had been diagnosed in a Texas Presbyterian Hospital nurse, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings stayed up through the night putting together an action plan.

In contrast, President Barack Obama’s response is being criticized as not adequately prioritizing the crisis. As Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren tweeted, Obama made a phone call to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and then “headed out to play golf.” CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller had posted that the press corps had been escorted to vans in the presidential motorcade to go to the golf course, but then were led back to the White House for a photo opp of Obama on the phone with Burwell that “lasted only 40 seconds.” Knoller tweeted several photos of Obama wearing a casual windbreaker, sitting at his desk in the Oval Office while speaking on the phone.

Knoller also reported shortly after 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time that Obama has arrived at Fort Belvoir Golf Club for “his 200th round of golf as President.” The Golf Channel confirmed that this was the 200th round of golf for Obama — or, as they dubbed him, the “First Duffer” — since he became president.

CBS ‘Face the Nation’: USA Today’s Susan Page Says American People Sense That Obama Administration “Not Competent” and Will Factor In November Midterm Elections

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION NOT COMPETENT ENOUGH TO PROTECT AMERICANS …

During this morning’s CBS “Face the Nation’, USA Today’s Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page stated to the panel that the American people sense that the Obama administration is not competent enough to protect them from things like ISIS, Ebola and even the recent Secret Service incompetence this will have a major factor in the 2014 midterm elections in November.

“You know, both of these stories, the Ebola virus and the threat from ISIS are feeding into a sense 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.”

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.”

SNL Mocks Barack Obama on ISIS and His Underestimating of the Terror Group … “Could I Throw One Particular Person Under the Bus … James Clapper”

Saturday Night Live mocked Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS and the continual Secret Service screw ups at the White House. After throwing James Clapper under the bus, in the spoof, Obama then went on to inform Steve Kroft what the “I” in ISIS stood for. They always say that there has to be a little truth in humor to make it funny. The reality is in the SNL skit below, the entire thing is pretty much a rehashing of what actually happened and people in the audience laughed. Guess what America, the joke has been on you.

Steve Kroft: You made the point  that ISIS and the Islamic faith are in no way connected. Do you still believe that?

Barack Obama: Actually, I am beginning to think there is some connection. For example, did you know that the first “I” in ISIS stands for Islamic, I mean who knew?

Barack Obama Blames Intel Officials for ISIS … “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria.”

Barack Obama … The Buck always Stop with somebody else other than me …

It did not take long in last nights CBS ’60 Minutes’ interview for President Barack Obama to blame some one else for his not having a strategy or a clue in how to deal with ISIS. Barack Obama threw Intel officials and James Clapper under the bus and stated they underestimated ISIS. Who underestimated ISIS, or did you just not want to see what they were doing?  I could not have said it any better than Instapundit, When things go well, it’s always “I, me, mine” with this guy. When things go badly, it’s always “they” who screwed up.

But wait a minute, didn’t FOX News report Obama given detailed intelligence for a year about rise of ISIS?

President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News.

The official — who asked not to be identified because the President’s Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president — said the data was strong and “granular” in detail.

60 Minutes – Barack Obama interview

The Hill: Obama – Intel officials underestimated ISIS.

President Obama largely blamed the United States’ intelligence community in an interview broadcast Sunday for giving an incorrect assessment of the capabilities of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama said on CBS’s “”60 Minutes.”

Obama said ISIS, also known as ISIL, went “underground” when United States forces fought al Qaeda in Iraq in the last decade.

That, along with Syria’s civil war, allowed ISIS to regroup and recruit fighters from all over the world, including Europe, the United States, Australia and the Muslim world, Obama said in an excerpt from the interview. The full interview with Steve Kroft will air Sunday night.

“And so this became ground zero for jihadists around the world,” Obama said of Syria.

Jim Geraghty at NRO says, oh contaire … “How Many Times Was Obama Warned About an Islamist Takeover of Iraq?”

Isn’t this what all of those allegedly horrific warmongering Bush administration officials warned about? Didn’t we have an entire 2008 presidential campaign debating the consequences of a “precipitous withdrawal”? Didn’t Obama and his team assure us, over and over again, that they would manage the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq responsibly?

Vice President Cheney, November 21, 2005:

Would the United States and other free nations be better or worse off with terrorists like Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi running Iraq? And would the United States be more or less safe with Iraq ruled by extremists intent on its destruction?

A precipitous withdrawal from Iraq would be a victory for the terrorists, an invitation to further the violence against free nations and a terrible blow to the future security of the United States of America.

President Bush, July 12, 2007:

I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.

Even The Daily Beast is calling Obama on his comments … Why Obama Can’t Say His Spies Underestimated ISIS.

Still, other senior intelligence officials have been warning about ISIS for months. In prepared testimony before the annual House and Senate intelligence committees’ threat hearings in January and February, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the recently departed director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said the group would likely make a grab for land before the end of the year. ISIS “probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria to exhibit its strength in 2014.” Of course, the prediction wasn’t exactly hard to make. By then, Flynn noted, ISIS had taken the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah, and the demonstrated an “ability to concurrently maintain multiple safe havens in Syria.”

Flynn was not alone. Clapper himself in that hearing warned that the three most effective jihadist groups in Syria—one of which he said was ISIS—presented a threat as a magnet for attracting foreign fighters. John Brennan, Obama’s CIA director, said he thought both ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, al Qaeda’s formal franchise in Syria, presented a threat to launch external operations against the West.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said February 4 that because of areas of Syria that are “beyond the regime’s control or that of the moderate opposition,” a “major concern” was “the establishment of a safe haven, and the real prospect that Syria could become a launching point or way station for terrorists seeking to attack the United States or other nations.”

Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll: Republican Joni Ernst Leads Democrat Bruce Braley 44% to 38%

Des Moines Register’s new poll numbers are making Democrat Senate candidate  Bruce Braley squeal like a pig …

The Republican party needs a net pick up of six US Senate seats in the 2014 midterm elections. It appears now that they may have many different ways to gain that number, including a pick up in Iowa. The latest Des Moines Register Iowa poll has Republican Joni Ernst leading Democrat  Bruce Braley 44% to 38%. How bad is it for the Democrats and Braley in Iowa, Braley is not even winning his home district. Also, 2/3 of likely voters believe it is a problem that he missed a large percentage of Veterans Affairs Committee meetings in the U.S. House and 59% think his role in crafting Obamacare is a problem. Braley is also polling poorly with rural voters as only 15% support him compared with 58% for Ernst.

First debate between Iowa U.S. Senate candidates Bruce Braley and Joni Ernst

Facebook: Joni Ernst for US Senate

The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is 6 points behind his GOP rival, Joni Ernst, according to The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll of likely voters.

Ernst leads 44 percent to 38 percent in a race that has for months been considered deadlocked. She leads nearly 4-1 with rural voters, and is up double digits with independents.

“Very interesting, and good news not just for Ernst but also for the GOP’s chances of taking the U.S. Senate,” said national political prognosticator Larry Sabato of “Sabato’s Crystal Ball.”

Just seven months ago, political analysts considered Braley almost a shoo-in for a seat held for 30 years by liberal Democrat Tom Harkin.
