Barack Obama Pollster Says Reporters Should Stop Covering Polls in 2014 Because They Lack the Proper Context Only When Obama’s Approval Ratings Near 30′s
Barack Obama’s 2014 wish … The MSM does not report poll numbers …
How comical that Obama pollster only now does not want media to report on polling when BO’s approval rating is crashing and ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.
With President Barack Obama’s approval ratings in the low 40′s and heading for the 30′s, with Obamacare opposition at all-time highs and with Democrats now in serious trouble heading into the 2014 midterm elections, an Obama pollster now says that the media should not report polls in 2014. WHAT A JOKE. All of a sudden how the media reports polls is an issue as Obama’s job approval and trust polling has hid the skids. Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, wants the media to go a year without reporting polls, what else would he like the media not to report … the truth?
With Job Approval Numbers Like This, No Wonder Obama’s Minions Don’t Want Media to Report Them
After a year of seeing President Obama’s approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and pessimistic New Year’s resolution.
Reporters should go the next “year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy Group, said.
His comments were made to reporter Mike Allen, who published them in his daily “Politico Playbook” morning newsletter on Tuesday.
Interesting that the Rasmussen poll above is the outlier, I thought the LEFT said it was a right-wing partisan poll?
CNN/ORC International Poll: Barack Obama Ends 2013 With All-Time Job Approval of 41% Approve, 56% Disapprove
No wonder Barack Obama wants to get away …
The latest CNN ORC International poll has President Barack Obama at an all-time low job approval rating at year end. Obama’s job approval is at a dismal 41% approval and 56% disapproval. This polling numbers a disaster across the board as he has lost women, independents, moderates, every age demographic, including millennials, and those polled had or did not have a college education. What else though would one expect from a president who has been caught in several scandals and even worse, lied to the American public. Heading into 2014, Obama is damaged goods and nothing more than toxic as the American people know they can no longer trust Obama as he has shown on more than one occasion be dishonest. However, the lie of being able to keep one’s healthcare plan if they liked it, period was a lie too far.
The 2014 midterm election look to be another Democrat shellacking, if the establishment, RINO Republicans don’t manage to mess it up.
Full polling data HERE.
In the afterglow of his 2012 re-election victory, Obama’s rating stood at 55% in CNN polling in January. That number ranged from the upper 40s to the low 50s through May in CNN and most other national polling, but steadily declined in the following months as Obama dealt with one controversy after another, from NSA surveillance and IRS targeting of political groups to the disastrous startup of HealthCare.gov and the controversy over millions of Americans being told they would lose their current insurance plans because they didn’t meet stands mandated by the new health care law.
According to the poll, which was released Friday, 40% say they disapprove of the President because they say his policies and actions have been too liberal, with 12% saying they disapprove because he hasn’t been liberal enough.
“The growth in negative views of the President comes almost equally from the left and the right,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “Not surprisingly, the number of Americans who disapprove of him because he is too liberal is up six points since the start of the year. But the number of Americans who disapprove of him because he has not been liberal enough is up almost as much since January, indicating that his slide is due as much to disappointment as it is anger.”

How ironic that Jay Leno has never been funnier and NBC is parting ways with him …
Barack Obama is now the nightly fodder for late night comedy and the other night was no different. Jay Leno just shreds Obama’s falling job approval numbers and compares them to that of Ricard Nixon. OUCH! But wait, Jimmy Carter says, that’s not fair, if he had a 5th year, he is sure that he would be lower, ha, ha, ha!!! Many feel that Obama’s second term is Carter’s third term in office.
President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.
Obama’s approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50% — with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.
WAPO-ABC News Poll: Barack Obama Job Approval Rating 55% Disapprove, 43% Approve … He’s Fallen & He Can’t Get Up!!!
2013 is not over yet and neither are President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers falling … He’s Fallen and he can’t Get Up!!!
The Emperor has no close, and no approval ratings either. The most recent WAPO-ABC News poll is out and it is not good news for Barack Obama or Democrats. Across the board on key issues that are important to Americans like the economy, handling the countries problems and trustworthiness, Obama has either lost significant ground or the lead all-together to the GOP. Obama’s polling numbers are in disarray because the American people, who once gave him the benefit of the doubt, now see that he cannot be trusted. Obama has wasted all this time and lied about Obamacare, rather than focusing on the economy and jobs as he had promised as well.
Check out the comparisons from just a year ago … Had America known now what they should have been made aware of in 2012, Barack Obama would have lost the 2012 presidential election in a landslide. Obama can thank his lucky stars that the US Constitution does not provide for recall elections for the president.

President Obama is ending his fifth year in office matching the worst public approval ratings of his presidency, with record numbers of Americans saying they disapprove of his job performance and his once-hefty advantages over Republicans in Congress eroded in many areas, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
His position is all the more striking when compared with his standing a year ago, as he was preparing for his second inauguration after a solid reelection victory. That high note proved fleeting as the president faced a series of setbacks, culminating in the botched rollout of his Affordable Care Act two months ago.
Obama’s standing is of particular concern to congressional Democrats as they look to next year’s midterm elections. Parties that control the White House suffer — sometimes significantly — in midterm campaigns when the president’s approval rating is below 50 percent.
On several key measures, Obama has lost significant ground to his Republican opponents in Congress. On the question of who is seen as better able to handle the country’s main problems, Obama and Republicans are tied at 41 percent. A year ago, the president’s advantage was 15 points and at this stage in 2010 it was still five points.
Obama also has lost the lead he enjoyed on who could better deal with the economy. Today Republicans are at 45 percent to Obama’s 41 percent.
Any lead that Barack Obama and Democrats had over the GOP have all but eroded in 2013.

Barack Obama en el otoño político libre …
According to a recent Gallup poll, it appears that some one’s job approval poll numbers are in free fall with pretty much every demographic, and Hispanics are at the top of the list. Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are down with Latinos this year from 75% to 52%. ¡Dios mío … I guess me can expect an Obama mad rush for amnesty. However, that is not the only group that Obama has lost ground with. Obama has also lost Moderates (-16), 18-29 year olds (-15), Independents (-15), women (-14), Conservative Democrats (-14) , Democrats (-13), 30-49 year olds (-12), 50-64 year olds (-12) and even Blacks at -9. However, it appears that Legal Insurrection has found one group that has maintained their support for Obama, Conservative Republicans are only at -2, down from 7% to 5%. HA!
Not only does Obama not have coattails, he is now considered toxic.
Can we call this a total and complete loss of the America people? Imagine if the election was held today with the American people knowing the truth about many of Obama’s lies and the MSM was forced into not carrying the water 100% of the time for their leader?
President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in November, down 12 percentage points from 53% last December, his high-water mark since his first year in office. Hispanics’ approval has dropped 23 points over the last 12 months, the most among major subgroups, and nearly twice the national average.
Hispanics’ approval ratings of Obama have shown the most variation of any group’s ratings throughout his presidency. That means their views of him are less firmly anchored than those of other groups, which may help explain why their opinions of the president soured more than any other group’s in recent months. Despite the significant decline in their approval ratings over the past 12 months, a majority of Hispanics, 52%, still approve of the job Obama is doing.
A note to Republicans, namely Speaker John Boehner and the GOP leadership in the House … if you pass a BS amnesty bill you will collapse the Republican party forever. Hot Air correctly points out that the Democrats do not own the Latino vote. You have an opportunity to make real reform with immigration and deal with this issue in a common sense way. One of those is to actually uphold the oaths that all of you took and to follow the US Constitution and uphold the laws of the land. I have always believed that Hispanics were not a monolithic voting block and were interested in many things other than immigration (amnesty), like the economy, real healthcare reform, jobs and the truth.
If the first two months of ObamaCare could push him nearly underwater with Latinos, what will another year of rate shock and shrinking provider networks do? Without lifting a finger, the GOP may be back in play for this demographic — not so much that they’d win it outright, but enough that they could close the gap to, say 15-20 points instead of 40-45. In a tight election, that would be ruinous for Democrats.

“Young Invincibles” Turn on Obama in a Major Way … Harvard Poll: Millennial’s 18-29 Year-Olds Says 54% Disapprove of Obama’s Job Performance, 61% Disapproved of his Handling of Healthcare & 57% Disapproved of the Affordable Care Act
Millennial Buyers Remorse …
OUCH … 18 to 29 year-olds are in revolt against President Barack Obama, how he has handled his job, healthcare and Obamacare itself!!!
Hey Mr. President … the millennial’s just are not that into you anymore now that they know they truth and they have been lied to and used. Couple the healthcare lies with the NSA spying scandals and the youth that so supported Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections now learn that there is nothing “Hopey-Changey” about Obama. He is the same old, same old lying politicians. Maybe even worse. According to a new Harvard IOP poll, among the 18- 29- year olds currently without health insurance, less than 1/3 say they’re likely to enroll in the exchange. 13% say they will definitely enroll, 16% say they will probably enroll; 41% say they are 50-50 at the moment.
- 54% Disapprove of Obama’s Job Performance
- 61% Disapproved of his Handling of Healthcare
- 57% Disapproved of the Affordable Care Act
- 44% said they think the quality of their health care will get worse
The Millennials actually now look more like the rest of the voter electorate.
The trend is daunting for the White House but not necessarily surprising,” said Pew Research Center Director Michael Dimock.
“Younger folks are part of Obama’s base … but the rollout confirmed concerns that were already in their minds.”
A poll released Wednesday by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics found that more than half of 18- to 29-year-olds disapprove of ObamaCare and believe it will raise their healthcare costs.
Even more troubling for the administration is that less than one-third of uninsured young people said they plan to enroll in coverage.
Without a large number of young, healthy people in the insurance exchanges, it could create a “death spiral” of high premiums that could threaten the long-term viability of the marketplaces.
The White House appears to recognize the growing threat, and is making outreach to younger people a major focus of its ObamaCare relaunch.
The president began the effort on Wednesday with a youth summit at the White House where he urged audience members to spread the word about the new healthcare exchanges — and think hard about their own health risks.
It would appear that lying is worse than smoking crack …
Just how bad is it for Barack Obama? The crack smoking, foul mouthed, bizarro Toronto mayor Rob Ford actually has a higher approval rating than Barack Obama. Kind of amazing. Barack Obama is at all-time lows in every single major media poll, including a CBS poll that has Obama’s job approval at 37%. But then again, if you Ford told the truth and admitted to smoking crack, Barack Obama lied through his teeth to the American people and took away their health insurance with Obamacare.
Rob Ford, the crack-smoking mayor of Toronto, has a higher approval rating than Barack Obama, according to a survey.
A Forum Research survey of 1,049 Toronto voters found that 42 per cent approved of the job Mr Ford has been doing as mayor of Canada’s largest city.
Although it is a two point drop from two weeks ago, it is up from the 39 per cent approval rating he had before he admitted smoking crack cocaine.
By comparison, earlier this week Mr Obama’s popularity slumped to an all-time low, with only 37 per cent of Americans approving of the job he is doing.
The result suggests that Mr Ford could still be competitive in next year’s municipal election, although only 33 per cent of those polled said they would vote for him in 2014.

MSNBC: Every Single Major National Media Poll Has Barack Obama’s Poll Numbers at All-Time Lows … Impacting Democrats Across America
Barack Obama … the incredible shrinking president …
On Friday, even the panel on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ had to admit what that Obama’s poll numbers were in free-fall across the board and hitting all-time lows in every single major national media poll. Obama’s tanking poll numbers were also dragging down Democrats up for reelection in 2014 across America. Recent Senate polls in Montana, Colorado and North Carolina where Democrats who were either close or ahead a month ago are now finding themselves either even or behind. The Obamacare lies and fiasco are shredding Democrats. Look for more and more Democrats to jump ship.
- ABC News/Washington Post
- Quinnipiac University
- PEW Poll
- FOX News
- National Journal Heartland Monitor
- NBC News/Wall Street Journal
- CNN poll
- CBS News
What is the Democrats answer to the lies, misrepresentations and fabrications they have told “We the People,” why make Obamacare even more political than it already is and extend the enrollment period until after the 2015 midterm elections.
CBS News Poll: Barack Obama’s Job Approval Down to 37%, 57% Disapproval … He’s Fallen and He Can’t Get Up!!!
It’s official, Obama’s job approval ratings are in complete free-fall …
According to the most recent CBS poll, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has crashed to 37%. YIKES!!! This is a -20 point job approval. Obama poll numbers have officially fallen and they can’t get up. The president’s poll numbers have hit that threshold where they are in complete collapse. Obama’s job disapproval is now at 57%, the highest yet for the Obamamessiah with CBS polling. Obama’s overall job approval rating has declined among many demographic groups since last month, including independents (a 12-point drop), men (down 9 points), and women (a 10-point drop). What might be most remarkable is that women now disapprove than approve of the job Obama is doing as president.
Support for Obamacare has fallen drastically as well where even many Democrats have lost faith in it and although a majority of Dems still support it, Obamacare has dropped 16 points from last month, from 74% to 58% . More from Powerline and Obama’s Free-fall. Just how low can he go? President Obama sank to a new low when he and fellow Democrats knowing lied to the American people with every facet of Obamacare and what it would do and now he is paying a political price as Obama sinks to new lows. However, his ultimate low was his personal promise to “We the People” that they could keep their healthcare, now Americans are scrambling as what to do as they never dreamed they would be canceled.
Things are only going to get worse, as tens of millions lose their existing health insurance and a large majority of Americans, in both the employer-sponsored market and the individual/small group market, find that the cost of health insurance is rising.
President Obama’s job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency, according to a new CBS News poll released Wednesday, and Americans’ approval of the Affordable Care Act has dropped it’s lowest since CBS News started polling on the law.
Thirty-seven percent now approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, down from 46 percent in October — a nine point drop in just a month. Mr. Obama’s disapproval rating is 57 percent — the highest level for this president in CBS News Polls.
A rocky beginning to the opening of the new health insurance exchanges has also taken its toll on how Americans perceive the Affordable Care Act. Now, approval of the law has dropped to 31 percent – the lowest number yet recorded in CBS News Polls, and a drop of 12 points since last month. Sixty-one percent disapprove (a high for this poll), including 46 percent who say they disapprove strongly.
Republicans are nearly unanimous in their disapproval of the law, and now more than two-thirds of independents agree. Almost six in ten Democrats continue to support the law, but their support has dropped 16 points from last month – from 74 percent in October to 58 percent today. Support has dropped 11 points among independents and five points among Republicans.
Check out the average polling job approval numbers at Real Clear Politic. However, note their average stops at the Quinnipiac poll. Add in the National Journal and Pew Research polls and you have a president with average job approval numbers in the 30′s.
Barack Obama is only left with his liberal buddy Bruce Springsteen serenading him with, I’m Going Down, down, down … The lies and scandals have finally caught up to this president. Take a good look at what would have happened in the 2012 presidential election had Obama actually told the truth, the MSM done their job and the American voters had done theirs.
UPDATE I: From The Hill, Obama and Democrats hit new lows and are in complete panic. The lies and Democrat support of the lies have finally caught up to them. There is going to be hell to pay for defrauding the American people.
WAPO/ABC News Poll: Buyer’s Remourse – Mitt Romney Would Beat Barack Obama if the Presidential Election was Held Today, 49% to 45% … Poll Numbers in Free-Fall
DOES ANYONE REALLY WONDER WHY OBAMA LIED THRU HIS TEETH ON OBAMACARE AND YOU CAN KEEP YOUR INSURANCE PLAN IF YOU LIKED IT? DO YOU REALLY WONDER WHY THE MSM NEVER BOTHERED TO ASK QUESTIONS?
It is the great fraud perpetrated on the American People …
As reported at The Politico, there is more disastrous polling numbers for President Barack Obama as a recent WAPO-ABC News poll shows that if the 2012 presidential election was held today, Mitt Romney would beat Obama, 49% to 45% among registered voters. Talk about your “buyer’s remorse”. This is a much different outcome than the 2012 match-up where Obama beat Romney 51% to 47% to win a second term. My how times have changed. What a difference the truth makes. What a difference it makes when the MSM decides to actually report on the numerous scandals of the Obama White House.
Making matters worse for Obama, Independents go for Romney 49% to 39% over Obama.
The WAPO/ABC poll also has Barack Obama’s job approval rating at 42% approve, 55% disapprove.
As more bad poll numbers continue to pour in for President Barack Obama, a new survey finds that if the 2012 election matchup were held this month, Mitt Romney would hold the edge with the voters.
Romney topped Obama 49 percent to 45 percent among registered voters in the Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Among all Americans, the 2012 rivals would be tied, at 47 percent.
Obama beat Romney 51 percent to 47 percent a year ago to win a second term.
The poll also found more bad news for Obama: His approval was down to 42 percent, a fall of 6 points from a month ago. Fifty-five percent disapproved.
Other ratings of the president’s performance have tumbled as well. He’s at career lows for being a strong leader, understanding the problems of average Americans and being honest and trustworthy – numerically under water on each of these (a first for the latter two). His rating for strong leadership is down by 15 points this year and a vast 31 points below its peak shortly after he took office. In a new gauge, just 41 percent rate him as a good manager; 56 percent think not.
This poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, finds that the president’s personal image has suffered alongside his professional ratings. Fewer than half, 46 percent, see him favorably overall, down 14 points this year to the fewest of his presidency. Fifty-two percent now view him unfavorably, a new high and a majority for the first time since he took office. It may matter: Personal popularity can provide a president with cushioning when the going gets rough. Losing it leaves the president more vulnerable.
ACA – Skepticism about the Affordable Care Act looks to be the driving force in Obama’s troubles. Americans by nearly 2-1, 63-33 percent, disapprove of his handling of implementation of the new health care law. And the public by 57-40 percent now opposes the law overall, its most negative rating to date, with opposition up by 8 points in the past month alone.
RCP Average Polling – Complete carnage, almost under 40% as an average.
EXIT QUESTION: How does everyone think that the 2012 Presidential, House and Senate elections would have turned out if IRS-gate was reported on, if Benghazi-gate had been reported on, if AP-gate had been reported on and if, Barack Obama had told the truth and said that 5-10 million individuals with private healthcare plans who liked their insurance would lose it? How about if he told those with employer insurance coverage would lose theirs as well and it would be worse? Hmm?
