The latest PEW Research poll looks much like many of the other polls that Obama and his minions want you to disregard.
PEW Research poll has President Barack Obama’s job approval rating falling to 47%. This represents an 8% fall from his reelection to a second term and his December 2012 approval ratings. As The Daily Caller astutely points out, and as we learned from the 2012 presidential elections, the polls are always correct. There is going to come a point where Obama’s numbers crater for good. The American people are tired of being tired, and frankly growing weary of Obama’s promises. George W. Bush can no longer be blamed for the economy and the fact that the unemployment rate is going down has nothing to do with job growth. It has to do more with individuals leaving the work force. Look for the 2014 midterms to be a final choice by America whether they want to be a once proud country on the principles that our Nation was founded, or whether they want to be Western Europe and Cyprus.
Barack Obama’s job approval rating has tumbled since shortly after his re-election, as the public’s economic expectations for the coming year have soured. Despite substantial public awareness of recent gains in the stock market and rebounding real-estate values, the percentage saying economic conditions will get worse over the next year has risen to its highest point in nearly eight years.
Obama’s job approval measure has fallen eight points since December, from 55% to 47%. His rating is comparable to George W. Bush’s (45%) at the same point early in his second term and is much lower than Bill Clinton’s 60% rating in February 1997.
Who was that again who said Presidential debates do not matter? Oh yea, the bias in the tank liberal MSM for Obama. President Barack Obama is learning the hard way that they certainly do. In the latest of post debate polls, the PEW poll has GOP candidate Mitt Romney now in the lead over Obama, 49% to 45%. Romney has erased ab 8% prior debate deficit and now leads by 4%, a 12% swing. 89% of Republicans believed that Romney won the recent Presidential debate and more importantly, 72% of Independents did as well.
In turn, Romney has drawn even with Obama in the presidential race among registered voters (46% to 46%) after trailing by nine points (42% to 51%) in September. Among likely voters, Romney holds a slight 49% to 45% edge over Obama. He trailed by eight points among likely voters last month.
Fully 66% of registered voters say Romney did the better job in last Wednesday’s debate, compared with just 20% who say Obama did better. A majority (64%) of voters who watched the debate describe it as mostly informative; just 26% say it was mostly confusing.
Check out at Hot Air the change in the demographic vote of men and women toward Romney, Mitt is now tied with Obama for the women vote.
What a difference a debate makes and more importantly, what a difference it makes for Romney to introduce himself to America and be juxtaposed to Obama and allowed to present his own ideas rather than being falsely dictated by Obama attack ads. America saw for themselves that Romney was intelligent, rational and had ideas to fix the economy and work with others to do it. America saw an” empty chair” in Obama as he failed miserably.
Global Approval for International Rock Star Barack Obama Declines Drastically Since The One Became President
The International Rock Star has fallen …
According to a recent Pew Research Center poll, Barack Obama, the International rock star President is no longer.Global opinion of Obama was declined in 21 countries. As reported at the Politico, approval of Obama’s international policies has dropped from 78% to 63% in Europe; from 34% to 15% in Muslim countries; from 40% to 22% in Russia; and from 57% to 27% in China.
Some countries remained confident in Obama, but others like Muslim countries did not. Hmm. You mean that Obama apology tour and the outreach by Obama to the Muslim world no longer calling it a “global war on terror” but instead an “overseas contingency operation” did not work? Go figure. Barack Obama also likes to tout the drone strikes to show how tough he is on terrorism, even though Obama inherited it from GWB. It would seem that in predominantly Muslim nations, American anti-terrorism efforts are still widely unpopular.
Global approval of President Barack Obama’s policies has declined significantly since he first took office, while overall confidence in him and attitudes toward the U.S. have slipped modestly as a consequence.
Europeans and Japanese remain largely confident in Obama, albeit somewhat less so than in 2009, while Muslim publics remain largely critical. A similar pattern characterizes overall ratings for the U.S. – in the EU and Japan, views are still positive, but the U.S. remains unpopular in nations such as Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, support for Obama has waned significantly in China. Since 2009, confidence in the American president has declined by 24 percentage points and approval of his policies has fallen 30 points. Mexicans have also soured on his policies, and many fewer express confidence in him today.
Occupy protesters … THEY ARE THE 31%!!!
According to the Pew Research Center, not even the Barack Obama endorsed Occupy protesters can change the fact that Americans look upon socialism as negative and capitalism positive. Even with all of Obama’s rhetoric and railing against capitalism (VIDEO), he loses the battle. Socialism was looked upon negative by 60% and favorable by only 31%. Meanwhile, capitalism had a 50% positive rating and a 40% negative one.
The recent Occupy Wall Street protests have focused public attention on what organizers see as the excesses of America’s free market system, but perceptions of capitalism – and even of socialism – have changed little since early 2010 despite the recent tumult.
The American public’s take on capitalism remains mixed, with just slightly more saying they have a positive (50%) than a negative (40%) reaction to the term. That’s largely unchanged from a 52% to 37% balance of opinion in April 2010.
Socialism is a negative for most Americans, but certainly not all. Six-in-ten (60%) say they have a negative reaction to the word; 31% have a positive reaction. Those numbers are little changed from when the question was last asked in April 2010.
As stated at Weasel Zippers, looks like Newsweek was wrong, we are all not socialist now. Imagine that, Newsweek was wrong again.
YIKES, talk about a trend and probably not one for the better ...
The marriage rate in the United States for those over the age of 18 has hit an all-time low 51%. This is compared to a 57% rate in 2000 and 72% in 1960. The average age of those marrying has risen slightly; however, the most alarming aspect of this data might be that nearly 40% of those polled say marriage is becoming obsolete.
Marriage rates in the US have hit an all-time low, as economic forces and social shifts have pushed couples to delay or avoid matrimony, according to an analysis of census data by the Pew Research Center.
Just 51 per cent of people over age 18 are married today, compared to 57 per cent in 2000 and 72 per cent in 1960, with trends pointing toward wedded couples becoming a social minority within a few years.
“Public attitudes about the institution of marriage are mixed,” the report said. “Nearly four-in-10 Americans say marriage is becoming obsolete,” yet most people who have never married say they would like to some day.
With the economy in the tank, individuals finances at risk, 401K uncertainty, more and more college grads returning to live home with mommy & daddy, and employers now covering live in boyfriends and girl friends on insurance plans, the institution of marriage has taken a hit.
Barack Obama poll numbers are in free fall. Just 41% of those polled in a recent Pew Center Research poll stated that they wanted Obama reelected. Even worse for “the Chosen One” is that a meager 31% of Independents want him reelected. Overall, Independents have all but abandoned Obama in the job approval polls. It’s hard to believe that Obama won 52% of the Independent vote in the 2008 Presidential elections against John McCain. Without the Independent vote Obama has no chance and the numbers continue to trend downward.
The sizeable lead Barack Obama held over a generic Republican opponent in polls conducted earlier this year has vanished as his support among independent voters has fallen off.Currently, 41% of registered voters say they would like to see Barack Obama reelected, while 40% say they would prefer to see a Republican candidate win in 2012. In May, Obama held an 11-point lead.
This shift is driven by a steep drop-off in support for Obama among independents. The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted July 20-24 among 1,501 adults and 1,205 registered voters finds that just 31% of independent voters want to see Obama reelected, down from 42% in May and 40% in March. Where Obama held a slim 7-point edge among independent registered voters two months ago, a generic Republican holds an 8-point edge today.
CNN references multiple polls, all that show that Obama’s poll numbers are cratering. Wow, couldn’t happen to a more deserving one term President.
