- His approval rating drops below 40%
Americans are stating to blame everyone for the government shut down, however, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating just fell below 40%.
OUCH!!! According to the most recent Associated Press-GfK survey, President Barack Obama has a 37% job approval rating. The poll talks about the government shut down and who is to blame, but the eye popping data from this survey is that Obama’s approval numbers are now in the 30′s. However, as more and more Americans are seeing the arbitrary and heinous acts of the shut down, like closing the WWII Memorial to elderly vets in wheel chairs and stopping death benefits to our fallen soldiers … more and more people, including the MSM are starting to blame all, Democrats, Republicans and Obama for the shut down.
Asked if she blamed Obama, House Republicans, Senate Democrats or the tea party for the shutdown, Martha Blair, 71, of Kerrville, Texas, said, yes, you bet. All of them.
“Somebody needs to jerk those guys together to get a solution, instead of just saying ‘no,’” said Blair, an independent. “It’s just so frustrating.” It’s also costly: She’s paid to fly with a group to four national parks in Arizona and California next month and says she can’t get her money back or reschedule if the parks remain closed.
The poll found that the tea party is more than a gang of malcontents in the political landscape, as its supporters in Congress have been portrayed by Democrats. Rather, it’s a sizable — and divisive — force among Republicans. More than 4 in 10 Republicans identified with the tea party and were more apt than other Republicans to insist that their leaders hold firm in the standoff over reopening government and avoiding a default of the nation’s debt in coming weeks.
Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.

Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll Has Obama Job Approval Levels at Lowest Rating Since November 2011 … 45% Approve, 50% Disapprove
DOWN, DOWN, DOWN …
It is becoming a trend, President Barack Obama’s job approval ratings are sinking in multiple polls. The most recent is the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll that has Obama at 45% approval, 50% disapproval. The Hill is reporting that this is the lowest approval percentage for the president since November 2011. Obama has tried his hardest to blame GWB for everything during his presidency and now Obama has a direct comparison to W. The 45% approval rating is the same was former President George W. Bush had at the same stage of his second term. Ouch, how is the MSM going to spin that? Obama was supposed to be like Reagan, Lincoln and Kennedy … not George W. Bush.
A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released late Tuesday finds Obama with 45 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval.
Those numbers are down from the same poll taken in June when Obama had a positive 48-47 split.
It is the lowest approval percentage for the president since November 2011, when the poll found him with a 44 percent approval, 51 percent disapproval.
Obama’s rating matches the 45 percent approval former President George W. Bush had at the same stage of his second term. President Clinton scored a 56 percent approval rating at a similar point in his presidency, according to the Journal.
The Politico gleams an interesting nugget of data from the poll, support among blacks have fallen 10% from June and 15% drop from April. Could it be that even the race-baiting that Obama has participated in with the aftermath of the George Zimmerman murder trial where he stated that Trayvon Martin could have been him 35 years ago. However, in the end blacks are more likely focused on the fact there are no jobs, the jobs that do exist are part time and the promises that Obama made about Obamacare were simply lip service to get reelected.
The poll’s numbers reflect Americans’ assessment of how Obama is handling the economy: Forty-four percent said they approved and 51 percent said they disapproved.
Pollsters also pointed to a drop in support among African-Americans as a possible explanation for Obama’s falling numbers, as 78 percent approve of Obama’s work, a 10 point drop since June and 15 point drop since April.
The Real Clear Politics Obama job approval average has Obama underwater.
Sequestration Exaggerations Coming Home to Roost … Obama Job Opproval Drops to 43% in Reuters/IPSOS Poll
Buyers Voters Remorse …
It would appear the second honeymoon is now over for President Barack Obama as his job approval ratings are plummeting. In a recent Reuters/IPSOS Poll, Obama’s approval rating has fallen to 43%. Are the people finally fed up with this president and his same old, one trick pony political blame game? The people thought that a reelection of Obama would some how cause him to become a leader. Instead, his thin skinned attacks and blame game are as vocal as ever. The sequestration lies and misrepresentations from Obama are a double whammy for Obama. On one hand you have “We the People” sick and tired of the president and Congress unable to do their jobs. On the other hand you have “We the People” sick of Obama and his minions exaggerations and lies that the world will end if sequestration took place. Just last week Gallup had Obama’s job approval back into the 40′s.
Less than two months into his second term, President Barack Obama’s approval rating has dropped and Americans blame him and his fellow Democrats almost as much as his Republican opponents for a fiscal mess.
A Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Wednesday showed 43 percent of people approve of Obama’s handling of his job, down 7 percentage points from February 19.
Most of that steep drop came in the week to February 26 when it was becoming clear that Washington was going to be unable to put aside partisan differences and agree to halt automatic budget cuts which started last Friday.
Confounding the White House’s efforts to blame Republicans for the cuts, most respondents in the online survey hold both Democrats and Republicans responsible.
Jammie Wearing Fools have further issues that Americans have grown weary of from this president does everything to distract “We the People” as he des nothing to improve job growth.
Gun control, immigration, so-called climate change and gay rights do nothing to help our economy, which is why he’s using those as a distraction from his endless economic failures. For all the squabbling over piddling cuts in future spending, nobody seems to ask why his trillion-dollar sequester has shown zero results.
The ink is barely dry on the ballots cast in the 2012 Presidential election and it appears that Americans are having buyers remorse with Barack Obama. The most recent Gallup poll has Obama’s job approval rating back underwater at 49%. If America has an issue with Obama now, wait until they find out all of his campaign rhetoric was mere lies and then there is Benghazi-gate.
