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.
Weiner Shrinks to 4th in Polls … Disgraced Prostitute Scandal Gov. Spitzer Says He Will Not Vote for Fellow Democrat Sexting Scandal Plagued Anthony Weiner
Could the Democrat Party get any more bizarre? Just curious, does purchasing the services of a prostitute trump sexting?
Weiners poll numbers in free-fall. As more and more sordid sexting details come out regarding NYC mayoral candidate and former disgraced US Representative Anthony Weiner, his poll numbers shrink. Following the stories that Weiner continued sexting young girls after he was caught in his first scandal,
Carlos Danger Weiner has now slipped to fourth place in the polls in the Democrat primary for NYC mayor. According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, Weiner has dropped to just 16%, down 10% from just five days. According to RCP, Weiner is pretty much done, put a fork in him. However, at this point Weiner is going no where as he is pot committed and his ego is going to make him stay in the race and lose as opposed to have yet another embarrassing presser explaining his withdrawal from the race.
New York City mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner has dropped to fourth place in a poll released on Monday, but Weiner has vowed to forge ahead nevertheless.
A new poll of likely Democratic voters taken by Quinnipiac University shows the disgraced former congressman trailing City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and former city comptroller Bill Thompson.
In addition, the poll shows that a majority of likely voters — 53 percent — think Weiner should step aside in light of recent revelations of another sexting scandal.
Quinn leads the Democratic pack with 27 percent, with 21 percent for de Blasio, 20 percent for Thompson, 6 percent for Comptroller John Liu and 2 percent for former Council member Sal Albanese, the poll finds. Seven percent of likely Democratic primary voters remain undecided.
Ha, Eliot Spitzer, the voice of the moral majority and ethics speak out against Weiner
But it gets even more bizarre, if possible. Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York who was forced to resign from office because of his prostitute scandal. Wow, talk about the pot calling the kettle immoral. So Spitzer says he will not support or vote for Weiner. Really? Does Spitzer even have the right to weigh in on anything that has to do with a sex scandal? Dude, last time I checked buying prostitutes as a governor (Client #9) trumps sexting. This might be one of the most hypocritical double standards ever. Spitzer is currently running for comptroller of NYC. What makes him think that he has the moral or ethical background for that position?
Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer doesn’t think Anthony Weiner should be mayor of New York City.
Asked by host Chris Matthews Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” who he would vote for in the mayoral election, Spitzer was hesitant to answer. Matthews pressed Spitzer, saying “You’re not going to vote for Anthony Weiner, can you just say that now? You don’t think he should be mayor of New York.”
“I think the answer is yes,” Spitzer said. “We have had a number of instances over the years where inevitably, of course, municipal employees, state employees have used computers and the like for improper purposes and there is an appropriate sanction for that and there should be.”
From CNN, comes the following comments from Spitzer’s opponent in the Democratic race for city comptroller, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer:
“It’s clear that Eliot Spitzer thinks there are two standards – one for him, and one for everybody else. His comments are the height of hypocrisy,” Stringer’s campaign said in a statement.
President Barack Obama’s job approval ratings are floundering as they are back in the negative as his administrations in plagued by multiple scandals and ineffective leadership. According to the most recent Quinnipiac poll, Barack Obama finds himself in the negative as the American people do not approve of the job he is doing. The poll states that 44% approve, while 48% disapproval of his job. One has to wonder how his job approval rating is this high with a continued bad economy, Obamacare imploding and the Middle East on fire.
American voters say 61 – 27 percent that it is not in the national interest to be involved in Syria and oppose 59 – 27 percent providing arms and military supplies to anti-government groups, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.
Republicans, Democrats and independent voters all agree that helping Syria is not in America’s interest and all oppose providing arms and supplies to rebels. Republicans and Democrats support drone/cruise strikes, while independent voters are divided.
American voters give President Barack Obama a negative 40 – 52 percent approval for the way he is handling foreign policy, his worst grade ever on that score. The president’s overall job approval is a negative 44 – 48 percent, little changed from a 45 – 49 percent rating May 30.
The president has lost support among women and independent voters – the folks who supplied the key votes for his re-election just eight months ago. In April, the president’s overall 49 – 45 approval rating included a 44 – 46 percent verdict from independent voters. Now he gets a negative 36 – 53 percent rating from the same group. Since April his approval among Democrats is down from 89 – 8 percent to 83 – 11 percent, while his negative 9 – 87 percent score from Republicans is virtually unchanged.
Quinnipiac Poll Shows that Majority of Americans Think NSA Leaker Snowden is a Whistle-Blower Rather than Traitor
As reported at The Hill, a recent Quinnipiac University poll finds that a majority of Americna now side with NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden. The Quinnipiac poll finds that 55% identify Snowden as a whistle-blower and only 34% consider him a traitor. This is a dramatic shift in opinion. The public opinion appears to be changing as “We the People” hear more and more as to how the NSA was spying on all Americans and much more than we were ever lead to believe.
The Quinnipiac University poll found 55 percent identifying Snowden, who disclosed classified information detailing the NSA’s secret surveillance of phone and Internet traffic, a whistle-blower. Thirty-four percent said he was a traitor.
By 45 percent to 40 percent, respondents also said the government’s counterterrorism efforts went too far on limiting civil liberties. That marks a turnaround from a January 2010 Quinnipiac poll which found the public saying the government’s national security policies didn’t do enough by a 63 percent to 25 percent split.
“The massive swing in public opinion about civil liberties and governmental anti- terrorism efforts, and the public view that Edward Snowden is more whistle-blower than traitor are the public reaction and apparent shock at the extent to which the government has gone in trying to prevent future terrorist incidents,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Institute director Peter Brown in a statement.
The Guardian reports, that Snowden never gave any information to Chinese or Russian governments.
A new Quinnipiac poll shows that the scandals are starting to take an affect on Barack Obama’s job approval rating.
Drip, drip, drip. President Barack Obama is taking a hit in his job approval rating as a result of the multiply scandals that are taking place in his administration in what was supposed to be the most transparent presidency ever. Obama does not face one scandal, not two scandals, but three scandals at the same time. That is correct, Obama is not facing just one Watergate, he is facing Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and Media-gate. Of which the scandal with the media has a part A and part B with the AP and the Fox News James Rosen scandals. Also, have we forgot Fast & Furious, how’s that Obama scandal going? According to the most recent Quinnipiac Poll, Obama’s approval rating is down to 45% approval, 49% disapproval. That is down from May when he was at 48% approval and 45% disapproval.
American voters say 76 – 17 percent, including 63 – 30 percent among Democrats, that a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate charges the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. President Barack Obama gets a negative 45 – 49 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 – 45 percent positive in a May 1 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, conducted before the IRS allegations surfaced.
The president’s biggest drop is among independent voters, who give him a negative 37 – 57 percent score, compared to a negative 42 – 48 percent May 1. He gets a negative 9 – 86 percent from Republicans and a positive 87 – 8 percent from Democrats, both virtually unchanged. Women approve 49 – 45 percent while men give a negative 40 – 54 percent score. Americans are divided 49 – 47 percent on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy, down from 58 – 37 percent, the last time Quinnipiac University asked the question September 1, 2011.
With all that has happened with this president and the scandals that has further made “We the People” trust our government even less, Democrats still support this president in lock-step. I wonder how they would feel if it were they who were targeted? It is truly sad that they cannot see the bigger picture and just follow Obama blindly and drink the Kool-Aid. However, what should be eye opening to Obama and Democrats is that Independents disapprove of Obama’s job by 20%. The most damning scandal for Americans is the IRS scandal. No one likes the IRS and the fact that a government agency has such power with no oversight to destroy Americans, no matter what their political beliefs and opinions may be, is frightening.
Support for an independent prosecutor to probe the IRS issue is 88 – 6 percent among Republicans and 78 – 17 percent among independent voters, 78 – 17 percent among men and 74 – 18 percent among women.
FOX News latest poll has Obama at 45% approval and 51% disapproval.
Reuters/Ipsos latest poll has Obama at 45% approval and 50% disapproval.
Still to come … the pounding that Barack Obama is going to take on the unpopular Obamacare and the IRS’s roll in establishing and enforcing it as the IRS scandal gets deeper and deeper.
