Former President George W. Bush Has a Greater Favorability Rating Than Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama
MISS HIM YET?
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.
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.
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.
IMAGINE THAT, HILLARY CLINTON IS NOT HONEST OR TRUSTWORTHY …
According to USA Today, the people do not view Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee for 2016, as honest or trustworthy. Say it isn’t so. They point two two polls, a CNN/ORC and ABC News/WAPO, where both show that more and more people believe she cannot be trusted. For the first time since declaring her 2016 run her unfavorable rating is now higher than her favorable. And you wonder why she refuses to answer the media’s questions or meet with We the People, without first having them cheery-picked. Could this be problematic for Hillary going forward as her credibility rating continues to go down? The story also discusses Jeb Bush’s polling issues as well; however, he is not the far and away front-runner of the GOP.
Hillary Clinton and die hard Democrats would say, what difference does it make, but Independents in a general election might have another thing to say when deciding their vote for an individual who obviously has trust issues, see Benghazi-gate, private email-gate, private server-gate and Clinton Foundation-gate, just to name a few.
Scouts honor, I am truthful. Ok, I lie, but what difference does it make.
A CNN/ORC poll (pdf HERE) shows that Clinton — dogged by questions about missing emails and big-money contributions to Bill Clinton’s foundation — has seen her numbers drop on such issues as trustworthiness.
“A growing number of people say she is not honest and trustworthy (57%, up from 49% in March), less than half feel she cares about people like them (47%, down from 53% last July) and more now feel she does not inspire confidence (50%, up from 42% last March),” CNN reports.
An ABC News/Washington Post survey shows similar problems for the Democratic front-runner.
“She’s slipped underwater in personal favorability for the first time since her unsuccessful run for the presidency in 2008,” ABC reports. “She’s deeper in the hole for honesty and trustworthiness — down 5 points in just two months and 12 points in the last year.”
REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.

40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
CNN Poll: Majority of Americans Back the Construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline as Barack Obama Vows to Veto It if Passed
Shocker, Barack Obama once against doing something against the will of the American people …
A recent CNN poll shows that a majority of Americans are in favor of the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. A resounding 57% are in favor of building the 1,179 mile Canada to Texas pipeline, while only 28% oppose. Of course you already know what side of the fence Barack Obama takes on this matter. Obama continues to pander to the environmental wackos and facing no more elections, once again goes against the will of the American people. No matter how many jobs, permanent ones, part time or otherwise are created by this oil pipeline project, the fact of the matter is that jobs will be created. This is a bad thing how? But Obama will tell you he wants to create jobs for the American people. Really? Even though Americans are overwhelmingly in favor of the building of the Keystone XL pipeline, the House has passed the construction of it, Obama has vowed to veto the bill. Yeah, he really cares about putting people to work.
Poll Question: Based on what you have read or heard, do you favor or oppose building the Keystone XL pipeline?
A majority of Americans favor the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline — a result that could give Republicans a boost as they move toward a showdown with President Barack Obama over the project — a CNN/ORC poll has found.
The 1,179-mile Canada-to-Texas pipeline is backed by 57% of the 1,011 Americans surveyed on Dec. 18-21. Just 28% oppose it, while 15% say they are unsure.
The controversial project has become the subject of a battle between liberal environmentalists who argue it would contribute to global warming and conservatives who say it would create jobs and help the United States break away from Middle Eastern oil.
President Barack Obama has threatened to veto a measure that the Senate is set to vote on as soon as next week, which would end the State Department’s six-year-old review of the project and authorize its construction immediately. Obama has said he objects to the decision-making process being removed from the executive branch.
Not only do 57% back the construction of the pipeline, in the same CNN poll, as reported at The Daily Caller, “a majority of those polled, at 57 percent, say global warming will not pose a serious threat to their way of life,” and that only 43 percent “expect global warming to threaten them.”
A new CNN poll just one week before the 2014 midterm elections shoe that 68% of voters are angry, not unhappy, angry with the direction of the country. The poll also states that 53% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance. Both of these poll issues do not bode well for Democrats. However, CNN also brings up a very key point from the polls which is the reason why the 2014 elections do not appear to be a “wave” election, as they should be. Voter turn out and enthusiasm means everything, especially in a midterm election. According to the CNN poll, 36% of Republican voters said they are “extremely” or “very enthusiastic,” about voting this year, as opposed to only 26% of Democrats. The 10% difference sounds good, doesn’t it, but is it really?
Back in the 2010 midterm elections when the GOP was swept into control in the House … a shellacking for Democrats, the enthusiasm gap was 54% to 34% in favor of Republicans. Wonder why the GOP is not sealing the deal to take control of the Senate and pick up 6, 7, 8 or even 9 seats during a time of a majorly unpopular president? Republicans have campaigned on nothing and have ignored their base. If they fail to gain control of the Senate, they will have no one to blame but themselves.
Nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance, two troubling signs for Democrats one week before the midterm elections, a new CNN/ORC International Poll shows.
Democrats are battling to try and save the Senate majority, while hoping to prevent more losses in the House, which the GOP controls by a 234 to 201 margin.
In the Senate, Republicans need a net gain of six seats, and several state polls in the past month of contested races show that Democrats are in danger of losing control of the majority, and thus Congress. Currently, Democrats control the Senate by a 55-45 margin with two of those seats held by independents that align themselves politically with Democrats.
The CNN/ORC poll shows that 30% of Americans are “very angry” and 38% are “somewhat angry” about the way things are going in the country, while 31% expressed “no anger” at all. CNN Polling Director Keating Holland notes the 31% of “very angry” Americans matches the mood of the country in 2010 when Republicans took back control of the House.
