HOW FRIGHTEN, MORE PROOF THAT LOW INFORMATION VOTERS RULE THE DAY … COULD THERE POSSIBLY BE A MORE WORTHLESS POLL?
File this one under the you have got to be joking category. In a Gallup survey released Monday of the most admired men in America, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump earning the same share of votes of admiration as did Pope Francis. HUH? Making this poll even worse and a sign of the times that we have truly reached a new low in the United States, Barack Obama was the overwhelming #1 and socialist Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sander was #4. Are you kidding me? And if that poll was not bad enough, Hillary Clinton was named most admired woman.
If we think that a president who has fundamentally transformed America for the worse and has shredded the US Constitution, an attention seeking billionaire and a self described socialist are 3 of the top 4 most admired men in America, we are doomed as a country. How could anyone put politicians at the top of their admired list?
Americans named Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama as their most admired woman and man in the world in 2015, with Donald Trump earning the same share of admiration as Pope Francis, according to the results of the latest Gallup survey released Monday.
On the list of most admired women, the Democratic presidential front-runner earned 13 percent and was at the top of the annual poll for a record 20th time, seven more times than former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Obama earned 17 percent on the men’s side, his eighth time atop the list, tying for second most with former presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower was named the most admired man 12 times.
Coming in second to Clinton on the list of women: 2014 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai with 5 percent, followed by Oprah Winfrey and first lady Michelle Obama tied with 4 percent. Below them is a range of political figures from around the world, from Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina to German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Myanmar politician Aung San Suu Kyi, all with 2 percent or fewer.
On the list of most admired men, Pope Francis and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tied for second place with 5 percent each. Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders earned 3 percent, with Bill Gates at 2 percent. A mix of religious and political figures, including the Dalai Lama and George W. Bush, rounded out the top 10, with 1 percent each. For Trump, this is his fifth finish in the top 10, the other instances coming in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2011.
Gallup Poll – Democrat 2016 Presidential Candidates: Hillary Clinton’s Favorability Continues to Fall as Socialist Bernie Sanders Rises
DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … HILLARY CLINTON’S FAVORABILITY RATINGS KEEP FALLING …
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%.
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?
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.”
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.
AMERICANS NAME GOVERNMENT THE #1 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.
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.
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.
