Former President George W. Bush Has a Greater Favorability Rating Than Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama


According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, former President George W. Bush has a greater favorability rating than both Barack Obama and 2016 Democrat wannabe president Hillary Clinton. GWB has a 52% favorably and 43 unfavorable … Obama has a 49% favorable and 49% unfavorable rating and a job approval of 45% approve, 52% disapprove. George W. Bush even polls better than the presumptive Democrat 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are sinking as American attitudes about the nation’s progress have taken a turn for the worse, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

A majority of the public once again say things in the U.S. are going pretty badly and disapproval of Obama’s job performance has climbed back above 50% as well.

In fact, former President George W. Bush is more popular than Obama.

According to the poll, 52% of adults had a favorable impression of George W. Bush, 43% unfavorable. When Bush left office in 2009, only about one-third of Americans said they had a positive opinion of him. This new poll presents a notable shift as Bush’s overall favorability has remained well below 50% for much of his time as a presidential alum.


Miss Me Yet?

Overall, 47% say things in the country are going well, 52% that they’re going badly. That’s a reversal from March, when 53% said things were going well, the highest share to say so during Obama’s presidency. The shift comes across partisan and demographic lines, with no one group’s opinions driving the overall change.

Obama’s approval rating has suffered a similar blow.

While it’s dropped since April, going from a near-even 48% approve to 47% disapprove split to a negative-tilting 52% disapprove to 45% approve, the rising disapproval ratings come across party lines, from both men and women, from whites and non-whites.

WAPO-ABC News Poll: Obama Hits News Low with 40% Approval Rating … Only 33% Among Independents … Democrats in Serious Trouble


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, …

The overall job approval rating average is not much better for Obama. According to RCP, only 42.0% approve, while 52.4% disapprove.

UPDATE I: Trouble Looms for Obama, Democrats with Election Day 2014 Approaching.

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.

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama 39% Approval – 56% Disapprove … Obama Dragging Down the Democrats Ahead of the 2014 Elections


Democrats have more to worry about than just voter turnout for the 2014 midterm election. The Obama wave that swept the Democrats into power is also going to be the tsunami that destroys them. Don’t look for President Barack Obama to be campaigning in any of the 2014 Senate battleground states from now until election day. According to the most recent Gallup poll,  3 day rolling average, Obama’s approval rating is at 39%, disapproval stands at 56%. It is not just one poll that has Obama in the 30 percent approval range, it is one of many including Reuters and Fox News. Is it any wonder why no Democrat candidate in a close race or any red state Senate Democrats want him any where near their campaigns?

Senate Democrat candidates in Alaska, Louisiana, South Dakota, Montana, Iowa, Arkansas, West Virginia, and Colorado find themselves in serious trouble with Obama no where to be found. Those Democrats that were swept into office on the coattails of the BS myth of “hope & Change” now find themselves at its backlash.

CNN – State of the Union: Former White House Press Secretary & CNN Commentator Jay Carney says “It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats”

Former White House Press Secretary, now CNN commentator appeared on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ with Candy Crowley and stated,  ”It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition.” The majority of the panel agreed that the GOP had the advantage in this upcoming 2014 midterm of taking control in the US Senate.

The Republicans need a net pick up of 6 seats in order to gain control. My person opinion is that because of the nature of the seats held by Democrats in red states being up for election and Obama’s poor job approval polling in those states, the GOP will most likely get to a +6, but it will not be a wave election. Too many establishment Republicans are nothing but Democrat light and the establishment still attacks its base as they run on ideas that are no part of the GOP platform.


“It’s not going to be a good year for Democrats by definition,” Carney said. “The sixth year is always particularly bad for a president’s party. You couple that with the fact so many seats are defended by Democrats in red states where Mitt Romney did very well against the president, double-digits in most cases, and there’s no outcome in November that anybody could say would be great for Democrats, except for barely holding onto the Senate.”

Carney added that this by no means meant the GOP was in the clear. “The problem for Republicans if they win is Americans begin to think that ‘we hate Congress’ and it is now clear that one party is in control of Congress.”

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama’s “Strong Disapproval” Double His “Strong Approval”


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.
