Poll Numbers Fall, Obama Job Approval at 39%, Not a Decisive Leader and No Longer Considered Honest & Trustworthy

Welcome to the Richard Nixon Barack Obama presidency … 

President Barack Obama’s poll numbers are in free-fall. A recent Quinnipiac University poll has Barack Obama’s job approval hitting an all time low of 39%. Also, For the first time in his presidency American voters say by a  52% to 44% that Barack Obama is not honest and trustworthy. Gee America, what took you so long, but welcome aboard?


American voters disapprove 54 – 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his lowest approval rating in any Quinnipiac University national poll since he became president, as even women disapprove 51 – 40 percent, according to a national poll released today.

Today’s results compare to a slight 49 – 45 percent disapproval October 1. President Obama’s lowest score before today was a 55 – 41 percent disapproval in an October 6, 2011 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

Today, disapproval is 58 – 37 percent among men, 91 – 6 percent among Republicans and 63 – 30 percent among independent voters. Democrats approve 79 – 14 percent. White voters disapprove 62 – 32 percent while black voters approve 75 – 15 percent and Hispanic voters disapprove by a slim 47 – 41 percent margin.

Gallup poll also has bad new for Obama and his minions. According to the Gallup poll, Barack Obama has taken a hit on the characteristics and qualities of a president like a decisive leader and being honest and trustworthy. So Obama isn’t a decisive leader, he is not considered honest and trustworthy and he has no clear plan for solving America’s problems … why is he president again?


President Barack Obama’s reputation with the American public has faltered in some ways, but not in others. Most notably, for the first time in his presidency, fewer than half of Americans, 47%, say Obama is a “strong and decisive leader,” down six percentage points since September.

Similarly, the share of Americans who view Obama as “honest and trustworthy” has dipped five points. Exactly half of Americans still consider Obama honest and trustworthy, but this is down from 55% in September and 60% in mid-2012 as Obama was heading toward re-election.

Have you seen Barack Obama’s average polling lately? Polls with him in the 30′s is not the outlier but the norm. From Real Clear Politics comes the following terrible polling for Barack Obama.

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Down to 39% Approval … Is America Fed Up With His Lies About Obamacare?

The Misleader in Chief sees poll numbers fall into the 30′s …

According to the most recent Gallup 3 day rolling average poll, President Barack Obama’s approval rating has dipped into the 30′s and 39%. Have the political tides finally turned against Barack Obama for good? Obama is in the midst of attempting to lie about a lie as he has been caught not once, not twice, but 29 times saying to the American people that if you liked your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! However, we now not only know that is not the truth, “We the People” know that Obama and the Democrats were well aware that BO was lying when he made these comments. They also knew that the costs would go up as well, even though Obama promised just the opposite.


 Just how low will Obama’s poll numbers go and at what point will Democrats who face elections, unlike Obama, split with this toxic president? Had Obama not “illegally” changed his own bill to delay the employer mandate imagine the number of Americans who would find themselves without insurance?

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Job Approval Sinking Like a Rock Following Obamacare Lies … 40% Approve – 53% Disapprove

It is all starting to crash down on Obama as his lies to the American people are finally catching up to him.

The most recent 3 day rolling average of Gallup polling for Obama’s job approval now at 40% approve, 53% disapprove. Which is pretty much in line with RCP’s average polling of Obama’s job approval as well. All of the scandals  like NSA, Benghazi and the IRS are starting to wear thin with Americans. However, Obama’s Waterloo seems to be in being caught knowing lying to the American people on one of the cornerstones of Obamacare in that “if you liked your healthcare coverage, you can keep it, PERIOD!”

The even worse part about this is that there is nothing to break the news cycle for Obama. He promised that the disastrous Obamacare website Healthcare.gov will be fixed by the end of November. However, most think that may be a pipe dream. But even if that is the case, once individuals log on they will face the sticker shock of what they thought was falsely promised as “affordable” healthcare.

Earlier today on ‘Meet the Press,’ former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney commented on Obama’s credibility, “I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.”

Gallup Poll: Americans’ Satisfaction With U.S. Gov’t Drops to New Low of 18% … 81% Dissatisfied

Imagine if People actually voted the way they felt rather than just for a party … With the record levels of American dissatisfaction with the current government, there is no reason why all incumbent politicians should not be primary challenged.

Can things get much worse for incumbent politicians? A recent Gallup poll has Americans at an all time low for government satisfaction as it drops to 18%. You have to try to get numbers this low. Across parties, Republicans have a 8% satisfaction rate, down 3%, Independents have a 15% satisfaction rate, down 11%, and Democrats have a 28% rate, down a whopping 26%. Of course I am trying to figure out who is the 18% who actually is satisfied with our government?

Eighteen percent of Americans are satisfied with the way the nation is being governed, down 14 percentage points from the 32% recorded last month before the partial government shutdown began. This is the lowest government satisfaction rating in Gallup’s history of asking the question dating back to 1971.

The real question that needs to be asked is whether this will affect the 2014 and 2016 elections and if incumbent politicians should be extremely concerned.

 This Gallup poll is right in line with the recent NBC/WSJ Poll, where 60% of Americans Say That Every Member of Congress Should Be Fired.

Gallup Poll: Barack Obama Approval Rating Drops to 41% … 52% Disapproval

According to the most recent Gallup poll, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to 41% with a 52% disapproval.

Could the government shutdown, the pain that Obama is trying to inflict on Americans like WWII vets, and the absolute disastrous roll out of Obamacare he the reason why Obama is seeing extremely negative job approval numbers? The RCP average off job approval polls has 43.7% approve and 50.9% disapprove. There is a reason why they call Obama a “community” agitator … and what he is doing now during the government shutdown is simply disgusting.


Here’s to you America!!!

It’s the Chicago way … Barack Obama and Democrats are trying to cause as much pain to Americans as humanly possible in this government shutdown and it may come back to bite them in a major way. More importantly, it better.  A Park Service ranger spoke out against what he called “disgusting” tactics.

“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

What a joke … 99% of Obamacare applications hit a wall.

It’s a batting average that won’t land the federal marketplace for Obamacare into the Healthcare Hall of Fame.

As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contains enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan, several insurance industry sources told CNBC on Friday. Some of the problems involve how the exchange’s software collects and verifies an applicant’s data.

“It is extraordinary that these systems weren’t ready,” said Sumit Nijhawan, CEO of Infogix, which handles data integrity issues for major insurers including WellPoint and Cigna, as well as multiple Blue Cross Blue Shield affiliates.

Gallup Poll: Most in U.S. Still Proud to Be an American, But 71% Say the Signers of the Declaration Would be Disappointed of What United States Has Become


On this 4th of July 2013, a recent Gallup poll says that most Americans, 85%, consider themselves proud to be an American. That number consists of  57% who are extremely proud and 28% who are very proud. But as compared to the early 2000′s, the number is still far below what it once was.  However, from this same poll, 71% say that the  signers of the Declaration of Independence would be disappointed by the way the United States has turned out.

Add me to that list as well. I posted in today’s Happy Birthday to America, that it is up to ‘We the People” to keep our elected politicians in line and that they provide a government of, by and for the people,  not against them. People must understand that we fought a War of Independence, not become dependent upon a government. Get involved and change the course, don’t just whine and accept it. Our government is supposed to be of, by and for the People, and deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

71% of Americans say that the signers of the Declaration of Independence would not be pleased with how America turned out. Well folks, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, YOU HAVE THE POWER!!!

Gallup_Declaration of Independence

As the United States celebrates Independence Day, most of its adult residents continue to say they are proud to be an American, including 57% who are extremely proud and 28% who are very proud. This high level of pride in being an American has varied only moderately over the past 12 years since the question was first asked, but has been lower since 2005 than it was in the years prior.

Americans Believe Signers of the Declaration Would Be Disappointed

Despite their widespread national pride, Americans evince a much more negative response when asked if the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be pleased or disappointed by the way the United States has turned out. Seventy-one percent of Americans say the signers would be disappointed, while 27% say they would be pleased.

Gallup Poll: NJ Gov. Chris Christie Most-Favored Republican Among Democrats

This should be all Republicans  need to know to never, and I mean NEVER nominate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as GOP presidential candidate.

WHAT A SHOCK. As reported by CNS News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker among Democratic respondents. Who could have seen that one coming? You mean RINO Chris Christie, Barack Obama’s best friend and the individual who helped Obama win reelection with his over the top embrace of Obama during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy? Why wouldn’t Democrats see Christie as the most favorable Republican seeing that he allowed himself to be the useful pawn and photo-op for Obama? As stated at Michelle Malkin, Hillary Clinton’s greatest threat for the Democrat nomination for president might just be Chris Christie.

Obama – Christie Bromance … They are not a political odd couple, they are the same person … Obama and Christie are all about Obama and Christie

According to a newly released Gallup poll, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the most-favored Republican recent newsmaker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the least-favored–among Democratic respondents. The poll sought to measure the favorable/unfavorable sentiments toward five Republicans Gallup believes may run for president in 2016. Conducted June 1-4. the survey asked: [P]lease say if you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of these people–or if you have never heard of them.” It then listed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

Chris Christie most beloved Republican by Democrats, what is John McCain going to say?

Talk About Hipocrisy … In 2006 Joe Biden Said, Don’t Trust a Spying President or Vice President, What Say You Now Joe? According to Gallup, Majority of Americans Don’t Either

Americans appear to be very troubled by the government spying on them. Hmm, so was Joe Biden when he was in the US Senate.  In 2006, then Senator Joe Biden said you can’t trust a spying president.

“If I know every single phone call you made I’m able to determine every single person you talk to. I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. The real question here is what do they do with this information they collect that does not have anything to do with Al-Qaeda? And we’re going to trust the president and the vice president of the United States that they’re doing the right thing. Don’t count me in on that.“

But of course now that Biden is VP and Barack Obama is President, things are different. NOT! The NSA surveillance program as morphed into an all encompassing, out of control data grab on ever single American and in the process completely shredding the Contribution and Bill of Rights. For something that Biden said, “don’t count me in on that,” he appears to be all in now. What’s the difference? Oh, he is in power. Talk about your convenient flip-flops and the height of hypocrisy. Now that Biden is VP, he must feel it is completely OK to shred the US Constitution and spy on law abiding American people. Because the rules don’t apply the liberals. How does one morph their opinion that you can’t trust a spying president simply by whether they are a ”R” or “D”? Especially when the Obama administration has already been caught in the IRS scandal where conservative groups were targeted?

As Liberty Unyielding opines, “aren’t you glad we didn’t elect an idiot like Sarah Palin to be one heartbeat away from the president?”

It would appear We the People” are not for a spying president either. According to a recent Gallup poll, a majority of Americans disapprove of the NSA Government surveillance program. 53% of Americans disapprove of the “Big Brother” watching them and violating their right to privacy. Weasel Zippers provides a similar CBS poll where 58% disapprove of the Government surveillance program. The only group who approves, are Democrats. Funny, weren’t they the ones that were up in arms during the GWB presidency that their library books were being reviewed?

More Americans disapprove (53%) than approve (37%) of the federal government agency program that as part of its efforts to investigate terrorism obtained records from U.S. telephone and Internet companies to “compile telephone call logs and Internet communications.”

There are significant partisan differences in views of the government’s program to obtain call logs and Internet communication. Democrats are more likely to approve, by 49% to 40%. Independents (34% vs. 56%) and Republicans (32% to 63%) are much more likely to disapprove than approve.

CNN asks, Was it OK for Snowden to leak secrets? The question is debatable as the jury is still out as to what his ultimate motive was.

Former President George W. Bush’s Favorability in the Positive for First Time Since 2005

George W. Bush, do you miss me yet?

According to a recent Gallup poll, former President George W. Bush has a higher favorable than unfavorable for the first time since 2005. When Bush left office in January 2009, he has a 40% favorably and 59% unfavorably. It was even worse than that one later. However, according to the most recent poll GWB has a 49% favorable and 46% unfavorable view. George W. Bush has pretty much stayed out of the public eye since leaving office and has remained quiet when it comes to politics and his successor. One has to wonder whether the current occupant of the White House will do the same. With the current state of affairs with the numerous scandals in the Obama administration, a continued poor economy, record number of Americans on Food Stamps, median household income down, and a Middle East that is on fire many Americans probably will pose the question to themselves, “Miss Me Yet?”

GWB did some things that were questionable in the eyes of conservatives and did escalate the US national debt; however, it was nothing compared to Barack Obama as he has skyrocketed the debt to out of control limits. Bush’s favorability is making a come back, but he has a long way to go. Many have said, history will be more kind to “W” as we look back on his presidency and realize he had to make many tough decisions that were important to protect America but was not popular for him.


Americans’ views of former president George W. Bush have improved, with 49% now viewing him favorably and 46% unfavorably. That is the first time since 2005 that opinions of him have been more positive than negative.

Bush has maintained a fairly low profile in the four years since he left office. However, he returned to the public eye this year with the April opening of his presidential library at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Bush left office with 40% viewing him favorably and 59% unfavorably in January 2009. That worsened to 35% favorable and 63% unfavorable in March 2009, but his favorable rating recovered to the mid-40% range by 2010.

CNN: America starting to remember “W” fondly.

Breaking it down further, Bush has seen improvement among independents and both political parties. Twenty-four percent of Democrats view him in a positive light, according to the new survey, compared to 10% in January 2009. Republicans saw a 14 percentage point jump, with 84% now having a positive opinion of Bush.

The biggest increase came among independents. While 29% gave him a favorable rating in 2009, that number now stands at 46%.

Hillary Clinton’s Favorability Slipping in Wake of Benghazi Scandal and Scrubbed Talking Points

Is Hillary’s approval rating tied to Barack Obama and his scandals, including her role in Benghazi?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finds her favorability ratings falling in wake of the revelations in the Benghazi scandal and State Departments efforts to change the Benghazi talking points following the terror attack that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. According to a recent Gallup poll, her rating fell slightly in June to 58%, from 64% in April. Clinton has garnered a high approval rating following the days of her husband’s presidency when she acted like she was a second president and told America “she was no stand by your man woman, baking cookies” (VIDEO).  Hmm, really? Turns out she was. Now, the Democrats darling and top choice for the presidential nominee in 2016 faces the aftermath of Benghazi where she failed those in her charge before, during and after. According to the poll, Hillary is way down with Independents from 63% to 52%. Look for these numbers to go down even further, the more and more that comes out. Also, with no one answering questions, and Obama rewarding Susan Rice with a promotion to National Security Adviser, if Hillary runs in 2016 she is going to have to explain herself in the Democrat primary and in the general election campaign.

Hillary Clinton said when she was grilled by Congress on the Benghazi attack, “What’s The Difference?” there are four dead Americans. Really Hillary? There are four dead Americans, the decisions made before during and after the attack were a disaster and she defiantly says, what difference does it make? Is this what we really need as Commander in Chief? Haven’t we had enough of individuals of an administration that would leave Americans to die as they begged for help and then tried to scrub the talking points to the point where they reflected nothing of what really occurred?

“What difference at this point does it make?” So we are to forget all that happened because it makes Hillary look bad for 2016.

Hillary Clinton’s favorability rating fell slightly in June to 58%, from 64% in April. That is the first sub-60% rating Americans have given her since 2008. Clinton’s unfavorable rating now stands at 39%, up from 31% in April.

This poll shows only slight changes in the public’s overall assessment of Clinton, with her unfavorable rating now marginally higher than at any time since 2008. However, there is no telling what the future might hold, as members of the House Oversight Committee have publicly speculated that Clinton may have to testify before the Republican-led committee again.

Although Democratic and Republican attitudes toward Clinton have been static over these past contentious months, independents’ views are now notably less favorable. A slim majority (52%) of independents hold a favorable opinion of Clinton, down from 63% in April.
