Gallup Poll – Democrat 2016 Presidential Candidates: Hillary Clinton’s Favorability Continues to Fall as Socialist Bernie Sanders Rises


According to a recent Gallup poll, the presumptive nominee for the Democrat party Hillary Clinton’s favorability ratings continue to fall. In contract, the self-proclaims socialist Senator from Vermont and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders continues to rise in the polls. Hillary Clinton’s rating has slipped to 43% from 48% in April, while her unfavorable rating has climbed to 46%, worst since December 2007. Maybe it is only taking some time for individuals to remember what a lying, dishonest, untrustworthy, non-transparent shrew this woman truly is? Between Benghazi and her insincerity when it comes to her emails on her personal server when she was Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary is losing favor with the American people. In some cases, other polls even have Hillary now losing in battleground states to her GOP rivals.


What difference does my unfavoability make?

However on the other hand, socialist Bernie Sanders has doubled his favorability rating in the Gallup poll since his initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12%. What does that tell us of what the Democrat party has become … the rise of the socialist. Sanders also has a way to go on the upside as he is still not known to many. However, Hillary is a household name where the only people who don’t know who Hillary is may not know their own name. There is a reason why Clinton makes herself scarce to the media and the minions, the more people get to know her, the more they hate her. Take for instance her condescending tone the other day and scratching of the chalkboard with your fingernails like voice yesterday when she blamed the heat on inaccuracies with her email scandal. Watch the VIDEO and listen to her voice if you dare. Really Hillary, you mean it wasn’t a right-wing conspiracy?

Honesty, if Hillary Clinton has any kind of issue in the Democrat primary running against the likes of current US Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, what does that say about Hillary? Also, shame on the Democrat party for not having another viable candidate to vote for. Or does this party really have no prospects? Its Hillary or bust.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ favorable rating among Americans has doubled since Gallup’s initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12% as he has become better known. Hillary Clinton’s rating has slipped to 43% from 48% in April. At the same time, Clinton’s unfavorable rating increased to 46%, tilting her image negative and producing her worst net favorable score since December 2007.

Sanders’ increased favorability reflects the broader increase in the public’s familiarity with him since March. Overall, 44% of Americans are able to rate him today, up from 24% in March. Not only has the percentage viewing him favorably increased, but also the percentage viewing him unfavorably has risen, up eight percentage points to 20%.

Clinton’s Inauspicious Rivals

Clinton maintains a higher absolute favorable rating from Americans than any of her official rivals for the 2016 Democratic nomination. In contrast to the relative prominence of numerous candidates on the Republican side, she remains the only Democratic candidate known well enough by a majority of Americans for them to rate her, which helps Clinton maintain a higher overall favorable score.

Sanders is still an unknown to a majority of Americans, with just 44% able to rate him compared with Clinton’s 89%. Total familiarity drops still further among the other three announced Democratic candidates: to 23% for former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at 22% and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee at 17%. With slightly more Americans viewing each of these candidates unfavorably than favorably, their favorable scores reach no more than 11%.

Gallup Poll: Smaller Majority “Extremely Proud” to Be an American

On the eve of the 4th of July, America’s Independence Day … The LEFT is ruining this country.

According to a recent Gallup poll, only 54% of people say that they are “extremely proud” to be an American. This is down sharply following the 911 terror attacks in 2001 and the 70% who stated that they were extremely proud to be an American in 2003. The poll also showed that 27% say they are “very proud,” 14% say they are “moderately proud,” 4% are “only a little proud” and 1% state that they are “not at all proud.” The South is the most proud at 61%, then comes the Midwest, East and West at 55%, 50% and 46%, respectively.

Remember what Michelle Obama said in 2008, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country …”

So what is the reason why so many Americans are no longer extremely proud to be Americans? One would think that it could be a result of Barack Obama being President and his efforts to change America. But in looking at what parties say they are extremely proud to be an American. it is the Republicans at 68%, Independents at 53% and the Democrats bringing up the rear at 47%. So why are Democrats not proud? Is it because the Democrat party now resembles more socialism that the Democrat party of JFK?

Gallup_2015 Proud to be an American

As Independence Day approaches, most in the U.S. say they are proud to be an American, including a slight majority, 54%, who are “extremely proud.” The percentage saying they are “extremely proud” is slightly lower than in recent years and down from peaks at and around 70% between 2002 and 2004, after 9/11.

In addition to the 54% who are extremely proud to be an American, 27% say they are “very proud,” 14% say they are “moderately proud,” 4% are “only a little proud” and 1% state that they are “not at all proud.”

Gallup_proud to be an American2

What is most telling of this Gallup poll is the age breakdown of those who say they are most proud to be an American. The younger the age demographic of this poll, the lower the level of being proud to be an American. With those who are 65 years of age and older, they are 64% “extremely proud” to be American, while the 18-29 crowd is at 43%. What else should we expect when they have been continually told be the LEFT, the liberal MSM, politicians, race-baitors and liberal politicians and educators that America is bad?

Once again we should send a shout out and a sarcastic thank you to the public schools and the liberal indoctrination that has passed for the education of children over the years. The liberals have successfully made the young not be proud of the country that provided them liberty and freedoms that they could never comprehend.

Gallup Poll: Americans Continue to Name Government as the Biggest Problem Facing the United States


Americans are fed up with the increasing and oppressive government. In a recent Gallup poll, Americans named the government as the biggest problem facing the United States. For the past 4 months, the government has been named the biggest problem facing “We the People”. They are correct.  Even with such issues as terrorism, healthcare, race relations and immigration are extremely important problems facing Americans, the government, the economy and unemployment have been at the top of the list for the past year. In the end, it is our lawless government that refuses to follow the US Constitution,  our government that fails to adequately deal with border security, our government that makes the Middle East worse, our government that continually regulates us in a way that our Founding Fathers never intended and our government that spies on us and treats law-abiding, legal US citizens as a greater threat than terrorists.

Americans have grown weary of a government that could care less about the people and only about their power. Every day we are witness to a Democrat president who shreds the Constitution and a gutless Republican Congress who is too cowardice to defend it.

Gallup Poll_Government biggest problem

The Politico:

The government is America’s most important problem, according to a new poll.

In a Gallup poll released Thursday, 18 percent of Americans named government as the biggest problem facing the U.S.

The economy trailed closely behind as an important problem with 11 percent, followed by “unemployment/jobs” at 10 percent.

The poll shows a slight increase in those who are dissatisfied with government. In February, 17 percent answered that the government is the most important problem. Americans also seem to be optimistic about the economy. Last month, 16 percent of Americans said that the economy was the most important problem — nearly tying with government. That figure is now down 5 percentage points.

Major survey finds record low confidence in government.

Americans’ confidence in all three branches of government is at or near record lows, according to a major survey that has measured attitudes on the subject for 40 years.

The 2014 General Social Survey finds only 23 percent of Americans have a great deal of confidence in the Supreme Court, 11 percent in the executive branch and 5 percent in Congress. By contrast, half have a great deal of confidence in the military.

As Ronald Reagen profoundly stated so many years ago, “Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.”

Ronald Reagan also said so many years ago, “We are a nation that has a government. Our government has no power except for that granted by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.” WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Gallup Poll: In Wake of the 2014 Elections Obamacare Hits an All-Time Low at 37% Approval, 56% Disapprove … Grubergate Not Really Reflected Yet in Poll

Remember when Barack Obama said prior to the midterm 2014 elections that all of his policies were on the ballot (VIDEO) and Obama even reminded voters that Democrats looking to distance themselves voted with him.

Obamacare is as unpopular as it ever was. Since Barack Obama’s policies were on the 2014 midterm ballot, I think we can understand why the Democrats took such a butt kicking on November 4th. According to the most recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation is at an all-time low of 37% approval and 56% disapproval. Eight percent of Republicans approve of Obamacare, while only 33% of Independents approve as well. Meanwhile, 74% of Democrats approve of the ACA, hmm, could these folks be who Jonathan Gruber was speaking of?

As the Affordable Care Act’s second open enrollment period begins, 37% of Americans say they approve of the law, one percentage point below the previous low in January. Fifty-six percent disapprove, the high in disapproval by one point.

The current 37% reading comes on the heels of last week’s midterm elections, in which Republicans won full control of both houses of Congress. Already, party leaders are discussing efforts to repeal the unpopular law.

Repeal is highly unlikely, given Obama’s veto power, but the law’s new low in approval — and new high in disapproval (56%) — could potentially have an impact on its future. The president himself has acknowledged he will consider modifications to the law, which could include repealing the tax on medical devices.

Even more bad news for Obamacare. The Gallup poll was conducted Nov.6-9 and surveyed 828 adults. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. This means that the poll was taken prior to the VIDEOS coming out of Jonathan Gruber stating that Americans were mislead and exploited. Also, prior to the new enrollment period of Obamacare where the premiums in many states have skyrocketed.

Gallup Poll: Democrats Plunge to Record Lows Following the 2014 Midterm Elections


According to a new Gallup poll,  the favorability for the Democrats has hit a record low following the disastrous loses in the 2014 midterm elections that saw them lose more House seats, lose control of the Senate and lose more governorships.  Only 36% polled had a favorable view of the Democratic party, that is a 6% point drop from before the midterms. I think we can now understand why many of the races were not as close as projected and some races like the Senate election in Virginia was even close at all. The polling trend was against the Dems and it showed on election night.  The GOP standing with 42 percent favorability, it is the first time since 2011 the Republican party has had a higher rating than the Democrats.


Chart – Gallup

After the midterm elections that saw the Democratic Party suffer significant losses in Congress, a record-low 36% of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of the party, down six percentage points from before the elections. The Republican Party’s favorable rating, at 42%, is essentially unchanged from 40%. This marks the first time since September 2011 that the Republican Party has had a higher favorability rating than the Democratic Party.

These results come from a Nov. 6-9 Gallup poll, conducted after Republicans enjoyed a breathtaking sweep of important contests throughout the country in this year’s midterms. The party gained control of the Senate and will likely capture its largest House majority in nearly a century. Additionally, the GOP now controls 31 governorships and two-thirds of state legislative chambers.

How low can they go? Following the recent video revelations by Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber admitting they deliberately deceived the American people and called them stupid, look for Democrats poll numbers to fall even further.

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.

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Ties All-Time Low Job Approval at 38% … 54% Disapprove


According to the most recent Gallup poll, three day rolling average, Barack Obama has tied his all-time low for job approval at 38%. At some point though, Obama’s job approval numbers have to sink even lower as we look around and nothing, I mean nothing is positive for the United states or Americans, both in domestic and foreign policy, in the disastrous Obama presidency. As Obama’s poll numbers continue to shrink, the MSM-Democrat state run media complex refuses to report the news.

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.

Gallup_Obama Poll 082814


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.

Barack Hussein Obama Highest Approval Rating Among U.S. Muslims

Imagine that, Barack Hussein Obama gets highest approval rating among U.S. Muslims …

From the Politico comes a new Gallup poll that shows President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group. What is some what perplexing is the fact that American Jews give Obama high marks, although down from 2009, even as Obama has shown in the last 6 years that he is no friend of Israel. Although, not surprising at all that those with no religion also sing the praises of The One.

Barack Obama: “My Muslim Faith”

President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.

According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.

Mormons were the least approving religious group, with 18 percent of Mormons approving and 78 percent disapproving of the president. Mormons in the past have ranked as the most conservative major religious group in the U.S.

The survey underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval — Obama is more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians.

Gallup: U.S. Muslims Most Approving of Obama, Mormons Least – Relative rank order of religious groups stable throughout his presidency.

Seventy-two percent of U.S. Muslims approved of the job President Barack Obama was doing as president during the first six months of 2014, higher than any other U.S. religious group Gallup tracks. Mormons were least approving, at 18%. In general, majorities of those in non-Christian religions — including those who do not affiliate with any religion — approved of Obama, while less than a majority of those in the three major Christian religious groups did.

Gallup Poll: Obama’s Job Appoval Falls to 40% Approval and 55% Disapproval Amid Disasterous Domestic & Foreign Policy Failures and Scandals

Could this be the true beginning of the end for Barack Obama’s job approval ratings?

The most recent Gallup 3-day rolling average of Barack Obama’s job approval numbers have him at a disastrous 40% approval and 55% disapproval, or -15%.  Have the Obama failures in foreign and domestic policy final caught up with him? The US still has an anemic job recovery and now Americans are seeing the Middle East fall apart as ISIS takes more and more cities in Syria and now Iraq.  Add the all too numerous scandals, including the recent Friday revelation that the IRS lost Lois Lerner’s emails, of the Obama administration and we have an Obama administration that is as toxic as ever. Let us not forget the VA scandal.

Look for Obama’s numbers to crater even more as the lost Lerner emails are looking way too much like the lost 18 1/2 minutes of the Nixon tapes.
