CNN Poll: President Obama Down to 41% Job Approval & a Mere 40% Say President Can Manage the Government Effectively

DOWN, DOWN, DOWN … AMERICA SUDDENLY FIGURES OUT A COMMUNITY AGITATOR HAS NO LEADERSHIP SKILLS …

According to the most recent CNN poll, Barack Obama’s approval rating is down to 41%, while 57% disapprove. This is an astonishing -16% mark for Obama in a CNN poll. But the terrible polling and Americans anger for Obama does not end there. The poll stated that only 40% think that Obama can manage the government effectively. OUCH, down 12% from June. But I would ask the question, what ever made Americans think that a community agitator with no management experience could manage the US government? Obama’s polling troubles don’t end there … 56% say he is not a person they admire, and 56% also say he does not agree with them on important issues. And wait, there is more, 56% say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. Other than that, things are going swimmingly for the President,[sarcasm intended].

Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.

According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.

“A lot of attention has focused on the President’s numbers on honesty in new polling the past three weeks, but it looks like the recent controversy over Obamacare has had a bigger impact on his status as an effective manager of the government, and that may be what is really driving the drop in Obama’s approval rating this fall,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.

President Barack Obama Dragging Democrats Down, They Have Lost 2014 Advantage Over GOP Because of Obamacare

Democrat’s Obamacare chickens are coming home to roost … Actions have consequences and Democrats are about to get hammered for backing the Obama lie.

Barack Obama and Democrats thought the 2010 midterm elections were a shellacking, 2014 might be even worse. According to a recent CNN poll, Democrats have lost all of their political advantage over the GOP for the 2014 elections. Republicans now hold a 49% to 48% lead in the generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates. Just last month Democrats held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot. This is a 10 point swing follows a political uproar over Obamacare, and Obama being caught lying to the American people that, “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD!” and instead 5 plus million people and counting have lost their healthcare coverage.

Obama_signing Obamacare

Look at all those gushing Dems as Obama signs away your healthcare coverage that you liked and wanted to keep

Guess what Democrats, I guess Americans are finally learning what was in the bill that Pelosi said you just had to pass along a partisan Democrat vote.

A new CNN/ORC International poll indicates a dramatic turnaround in the battle for control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections.

Democrats a month ago held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates.

That result came after congressional Republicans appeared to overplay their hand in the bitter fight over the federal government shutdown and the debt ceiling.

But the Democratic lead has disappeared. A new CNN/ORC poll indicates the GOP now holds a 49%-47% edge.

Gee, I wonder why Obama delayed the enrollment period for 2015 until after the 2014 midterm elections. It couldn’t be 100% based on politics now, could it? Sadly, with many individuals in America who really needed healthcare reform and affordable coverage, Barack Obama and Democrats just used that as an excuse for a political power grab and a way for the federal government to take over 1/6th of the US economy.

CNN Poll: Barack Obama’s Approval Rating Hits All-Time Low, 41% Approve, 56% Disapprove

Another poll and another new low for Barack Obama …

According to the most recent CNN poll, President Barack Obama has hit an all-time low with his job approval as only 41% approve of the job he is doing, while 56% disapprove.  This poll is just one of many recent job approval polls that have Obama hovering at 40% or under in the 30′s. Even more troubling for Obama is that he has lost the middle and women as the approval/disapproval is remarkably far apart:  Independents 32-63, Moderates 40-56 and Woman 40-53. Powerline makes an important point in that this is just the beginning of the slide as the real affects of Obamacare have yet to hit a majority of Americans. When 10′s of millions or greater lose their employer insurance plans, lose access to their preferred physicians and hospitals, “Poll numbers that look like a floor today will look like a ceiling in six months.” Yes they will.

And right on script, Obama looks to blame everyone but himself.

 Obama_handonforehead

As President Barack Obama’s approval rating hits another all-time low, a new national survey also indicates that Americans say the President has less power than congressional Republicans when it comes to shaping events over the next year.

According to a CNN/ORC poll released Thursday, 41% of Americans approve of the job the President’s doing in the White House, the lowest level for that crucial indicator in CNN polling. Fifty-six percent questioned say they disapprove of Obama’s performance, an all-time high in CNN surveys.

The President’s overall job approval rating is down three points since mid-October after being stuck in the mid-40s for several months in CNN polling. But it’s worth noting that Obama’s woes did not begin with the disastrous launch of the HealthCare.gov website in October, Holland pointed out.

“The real damage came in June, when reports about NSA spying and IRS treatment of conservative groups caused an eight-point drop in his approval rating – a far more significant change than what the numbers from October suggest,” he said.

How comical is it that  Rasmussen is the outlier poll that favors Obama the best at 43% approve, 55% disapprove?

UPDATE I: Hot Air takes a look at several of the cross-tabs of the poll, and they do not bode well for Democrats.

CNN Poll: 71% of Americans Against Obama Backed Military Strike Against Bashar al-Assad Regime in Syria

Bi-partisan support against Barack Obama’s military action against Syria …

As President Barack Obama sets out to do a media campaign blitz for a military strike against the Bashar al-Assad Regime in Syria  to win over the America people, a CNN poll shows that “We the People” resoundingly oppose it.  Obama has so miserably handled the run up to a military strike and Obama has failed to convince the American people that a strike is in our best interest. Americas are also  tired of war in the Middle East and fighting for people that hate us, that 71% of Americans oppose any military strike what so ever. Only 27% support it. Most people believe that Assad did use chemical weapons against his people; however, they want no part of any military action.

Obama has no International support, he has no domestic support … will Democrats be willing to defy the will of the people just to support this president and have him save face from his “red line” comments?

Obama_frown

As President Barack Obama presses his case for a strike on Syria, a new national survey shows him swimming against a strong tide of public opinion that doesn’t want the U.S. to get involved.

The CNN/ORC International poll released Monday shows that even though eight in 10 Americans believe that the Bashar al-Assad regime gassed its own people, a strong majority doesn’t want Congress to pass a resolution authorizing a military strike against the regime.

More than seven in 10 say such a strike would not achieve significant goals for the U.S. and a similar amount say it’s not in the national interest for the U.S. to get involved in Syria’s bloody two-year long civil war.

And if this fails in Congress Obama will not have the GOP to blame. Democrats in mass, including MoveOn.org is soundly against any military strike in Syria. Also, it shows a fail of leadership of this president as four 5 years he has done nothing but demonize Republicans. Now, Obama suddenly wants their support .

Thanks Barack Obama … 76% of Americans are Living Paycheck To Paycheck

How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya America?

Obamanomics has been an unmitigated disaster. The economy is a disaster and any reports that it is getting better is hogwash. A record number of Americans are on food stamps, the actual unemployment rate is much higher than the presently reported 7.6%.And then we have the real indicator that tells us how Americans are really doing. According to a CNN poll via Town Hall, 76% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck. For all the promises that Obama has made that he would make the economy better and in turn the lives of Americans. The joke is on you America. Obama may be an empty suit, but he has left 76% of Americans with empty pockets.

Empty_pockets

Roughly three-quarters of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, with little to no emergency savings, according to a survey released by Bankrate.com Monday.

Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all.

To make matters worse, in the past three days, Americans has lost countless money in their 401k’s with the DOW tanking after Fed chairman Ben Bernanke’s comments last week that they are going to taper back the flow of money and artificially supporting the markets. Bernanke said the economy is getting better. REALLY? 76% of Americans would disagree with you sir.

HOW IN THE HELL WAS BARACK OBAMA, THIS EPIC FAILURE REELECTED!!!

CNN Poll: Barack Obama Approval Rating Falls to 45% Amid Continuous Scandals

Don’t look now but Nixon’s Obama’s approval ratings are tanking amid scandals.

According to a recent CNN poll. President Barack Obama’s approval rating has sunk to 45% while 54% disapprove of his handling of his job. It is his lowest rating in a year and a half. So why the free-fall? Can you say scandals and the fact that the American people are being to not only lose trust in government, but specifically lose trust in Obama. The scandals are starting to catch up with Obama and how could they not? With Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen, NSA, the State Department and lest we forget Fast and Furious, it is simply amazing his approval rating is at 45%. Obama also go low marks on handling the economy and the federal budget. Also, as reported at the Politico, for the first time in his presidency, the poll also found less than half of respondents believed Obama was honest. In all, the poll showed Obama to be a complete failure.

Obama_Nixon

Full poll can be read HERE (pdf).

The president’s approval rating stands at 45%, down from 53% in mid-May. And 54% say they disapprove of how Obama’s handling his job, up nine points from last month. It’s the first time in CNN polling since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have had a negative view of the president.

“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

The president also dropped 10 points among independent voters, from 47% last month to 37% now, with Obama’s disapproval among independents jumping 12 points to 61%.

Snapshot of poll from Business Insiders:

General job approval is down from 53% in May to 45% now.
•Approval on the economy is down 2 points, to 42%.
On foreign affairs, Obama has fallen 5 points to 44%.
•On illegal immigration, Obama’s disapproval is up to 56%.
•49% of respondents say Obama is honest/trustworthy, a big drop from 58% in the last reading.
Among those aged under 30, Obama has seen a 17% (!) drop in approval.

More from The Politico, Obama losing support from Independents and the youth vote.

The drop in support for Obama was especially steep among young voters and independents. With voters ages 18 to 29, Obama’s approval numbers dropped 17 points, according to CNN’s polling director. Among voters ages 18-34, 48 percent approved of the job Obama is doing and 50 percent disapproved.

Independents’ approval of the president dropped 10 points, to 37 percent, and disapproval was up 12 points, to 61 percent.

CNN Poll: 54% Still Oppose Obamacare

Don’t look now but there is yet another poll with a majority against Obamacare.

A new CNN/ORC International poll shows that  54% of Americans oppose President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. This is about the same number of people who opposed the law back when it was first forced down the throats of Americans in 2010 by a partisan Democrat vote. Companies are already reducing workers hours and scaling back the number of workers to meet the exceptions to have to implement Obamacare. Now suddenly Democrats want to delay the medical device tax.  What, Democrats want to repeal parts of Obamacare? So they want to repeal a tax within a tax, eh? So how does Obamacare pay for itself? However, the full damaging effects of Obamacare have not even been experienced yet.

Obama_dr

According to the poll, 43% of the public says it supports the health care law, a figure that’s mostly unchanged in CNN polling since the measure was passed in 2010 by a Congress then controlled by Democrats and signed into law by President Barack Obama. Fifty-four percent of those questioned say they oppose the law, also relatively unchanged since 2010.

The survey indicates that 35% oppose the health care law because it’s too liberal, with 16% saying they oppose the measure because it isn’t liberal enough.

The wide partisan divide over the law remains. Nearly three quarters of Democrats say they favor the Affordable Care Act. That number drops to 16% among Republicans.

RCP: Tracking the approval/disapproval of Obamacare.

Nancy Pelosi has never been more right in her life and will forever be known for her comment on Obamacare, that “we have to pass it in order to find out what’s in it”.  No truer words were ever spoken and this is not for the good. Wake Up America reminds us that things are completely unraveling for Obamacare as Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama’s signature domestic legislation, referring to it as a train wreck. Also, Unions are now souring on Obamacare as well.

With even Democrats that voted for Obamacare attempting to distance themselves from their vote, expressing concerns and publicly making statements calling the implementation a potential “train wreck,” with unions who supported Obama and Obamacare now coming out against it and some calling for repeal, as well as reports showing premiums spiking and a seven foot high stack of Obamacare regulations, not to mention the taxes associated with the mammoth law, there is not much chance the polling numbers are going to improve in the near future.

THIS LAW NEEDS TO BE REPEALED, AND THE SOONER THE BETTER. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HEALTHCARE REFORM.

BOGUS CNN Poll has Race Tied Between Romney & Obama with a +11D Sampling

The final CNN poll has Romney and Obama tied at 49% apiece. But, is the Presidential race really tied? How exactly is a poll tied when Romney leads Independents by 22 points?

And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost every major indicator of President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney that was tested in the poll.

At face value, it looks like a tie and the meme that the liberal MSM wants “We the People” to believe. But, is the Presidential race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama really tied or is this just one big fabricated charade to make the election appear closer than it really is?

Good grief, after reading through the litany of data we have discovered this rather interesting tidbit from page 29 of the poll describing the methodology. If that is what one wants to call it. This poll has a +11D sampling.

Respondents who reported that they had already cast an absentee ballot or voted early were automatically classified as likely voters. Among those likely voters, 41% described themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.

WHAT A JOKE … in order to have the poll be a tie, CNN had to weight the sampling as a +11D. This is unreal and should be deemed criminal.

The poll claims that neither party has any advantage in the enthusiasm gap. An equal amount of registered Democrats and Republicans have described themselves as extremely or very enthusiastic about voting. Really, I guess that would be the case with a +11D skewed poll. Sorry, but as referenced at the Gay Patriot, with Romney ahead in so many polls with Independents, how is it a tie? We have been told all election season that Independents would decide the race, yet now when they are breaking for Romney … the line has been moved in the sand to over-sample Democrats.

What might be even more comical than the sampling is the fact that Romney still beat Obama in who would handle the economy better if elected. And we wonder why RCP has the polling a tie. Sorry, but RCP is doing no one any favors by including faux polls in their averages.

CNN Post VP Debate Poll … Paul Ryan Wins 48% to 44% over Biden

So who won the Vice Presidential debate … Paul Ryan 48% – Joe Biden 44%.

With no all due respect to CNN, we won’t call it a draw because if Biden had won your post debate poll, neither would you have. A majority of those polled both said that both candidates did better than they expected; however, by a 50%-41% margin, debate watchers say that Ryan rather than Biden better expressed himself. Maybe that is because Biden spent most of the debate attacking Ryan and interrupting him when Biden was not smirking and laughing. This is also why the Obama-Biden plan back-fired and Ryan won the likability vote over Biden 53% to 43%.

Forty-eight percent of voters who watched the vice presidential debate think that Rep. Paul Ryan won the showdown, according to a CNN/ORC International nationwide poll conducted right after Thursday night’s faceoff. Forty-four percent say that Vice President Joe Biden was victorious. The Republican running mate’s four point advantage among a debate audience that was more Republican than the country as a whole is within the survey’s sampling error.

Post Debate CNN Poll Has Romney With Landslide Win over Obama 67% to 25%

CNN conducts post Presidential debate pollROMNEY WINS 67% to 25% FOR OBAMA.

From start to finish of the 1st Presidential debate in Denver, Colorado, GOP Presidential challenger Mitt Romney was on the offensive and not only laid out his plan as to how be was going to get America back to work, grow the economy and make the United States energy independent, Romney lambasted Obama on his failed four years in office. At one point during the debate I thiought that Obama was going to throw in the towel as Romney KO’d BO. Barack Obama has had the past four years to make changes and has done little, what he has done has failed or made matters worse. Romney stated that more of the Obama status quo was bad for America.

It would appear that those watching the debates agreed with Mitt Romney as the early post debate, CNN polls have Obama winning the debate in a landslide. A CBS poll also had Obama winning big. How bad was it for Obama, even Chris Mathews after whining and losing his mind admitted Romney won.

“No presidential candidate has topped 60% in that question since it was first asked in 1984,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

While nearly half of debate watchers said the showdown didn’t make them more likely to vote for either candidate, 35% said the debate made them more likely to vote for Romney while only 18% said the faceoff made them more likely to vote to re-elect the president.

More than six in ten said that president did worse than expected, with one in five saying that Obama performed better than expected. Compare that to the 82% who said that Romney performed better than expected.

“It looked like Romney wanted to be there and President Obama didn’t want to be there,” noted Democratic strategist and CNN contributor James Carville. “The president didn’t bring his ‘A’ game.”

A CNN/ORC International poll of 430 people who watched the debate showed 67% thought Romney won, compared to 25% for Obama.

Romney’s strongest moments came in repeating his frequent criticism of Obama’s record, saying the nation’s high unemployment and sluggish economic recovery showed the president’s policies haven’t worked.

“There’s no question in my mind if the president is re-elected, you’ll continue to see a middle-class squeeze,” Romney said, adding that another term for Obama also will mean the 2010 Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, “will be fully installed.”

At another point, he noted how $90 billion spent on programs and policies to develop alternative energy sources could have been devoted to hiring teachers or other needs that would bring down unemployment.

Hot Air has numerous tweets of opinions of who won and impressions of the debate. Here are some of the doozies.

More tweets from CNN that show that Romney is a stronger leader than Obama.

and yet more tweets

EXIT QUESTION … Was Obama off his game or was he privy to new jobs numbers info that will come out tomorrow of first time unemployment claims for tehe week and on Friday, the September unemployment rate?
