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.
Reversal of Fortune … Left-Wing Former Weather Underground Terrorist Bill Ayers Gives Obama a Failing Grade and Says Should “Absolutely” Be Tried For “War Crimes”
Add domestic terrorist Bill Ayers to the long list to those who have ‘Lost that Lovin’ Feeling’ for Obama.
From Real Clear Politics (VIDEO)… Left-wing domestic terrorist and Obama supporter says that President Barack Hussein Obama should “absolutely” be tried for “war crimes.” Go figure. In an interview with RCP’s Tom Bevan and Charlie Stone during ‘Morning Commute,’ Ayers noted how Obama is no better than former Presidents Johnson and Nixon. Ayers gave Obama a failing grade and stated he had blood on his hands. Really, just how bad is it for Obama when his buddy Bill Ayers gives the Obamamessiah a failing grade? Hmm, more individuals making the Obama, Nixon comparison. This is beginning to become a trend.
The Washington Times reports the following:
Former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers says that while he still likes President Obama personally, he deserves “a failing grade” on the presidency and should be tried for war crimes.
“With all due respect, you hold Johnson with disdain. You hold Bush and Nixon with disdain. But isn’t Barack Obama — as the sole authority for drone use — engaged in terrorist activity?” RealClearPolitics’ Charlie Stone asked Mr. Ayers on today’s broadcast of “Morning Commute.”
“Absolutely, absolutely,” Mr. Ayers replied.
“Do you think Barack Obama should be put on trial for war crimes?”
“Absolutely,” the activist answered. “Every president in this century should be on trial for war crimes. Every one of them goes into an office dripping with blood, and adds to it. And yes I think that these are war crimes, that these are acts of terror.”
OK, who sees the obvious hypocrisy here? Obama is guilty of many things, war crimes, not so sure. But that can be debatable. However, who thinks that Ayers should be pointing the “bloody” finger at anyone? Ayers actually having the audacity to claim anyone has blood on their hands. Really, does Ayers have amnesia? As we are reminded by the PJ Tatler, isn’t Ayers a former domestic terrorist who bombed the Pentagon? A bombing that he has no regrets for.
Ok, the every president has blood on his hands remark is debatable, but it’s a bit amusing that an unrepentant radical views Obama as a war criminal. After all, it’s coming from a guy who set off a bomb in the Pentagon. Yet, he’s an authority on what’s ethical and moral within the realm of international relations?
EXIT QUESTION … According to the LEFT, does this make Bill Ayers a racists?
So who won the Presidential debates? Rasmussen says Mitt Romney 59% to Barack Obama’s 41%. For those who think otherwise all one has to do is go to the polling date prior to the first debate. Mitt Romney won the first debate in a landslide over Barack Obama, as Romney shined and Obama seemed as if he could care less.
Most voters consider the three presidential debates at least somewhat important to how they will vote, and a plurality of those that watched thinks Mitt Romney was the overall debate winner.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds just eight percent (8%) of Likely U.S. Voters did not watch any of the debates. Sixty-three percent (63%) watched a portion or all of all three debates.
For those who think that Romney did not win the debate wars, in an election year where debates really mattered, check out the polling data before the debates. That means you Al Gore, John Kerry and Democrats. Prior to the debates, Gallup Tracking 9/27-10/3: +4 Obama, CNN/Opinion Research 9/28 – 9/30: +3 Obama, ABC News/Wash Post 9/26 – 9/29: +2 Obama and Rasmussen Tracking 10/1 – 10/3: +2 Obama
Following the debates, Gallup 10/18 – 10/24: +3 Romney, Rasmussen Reports 10/22 – 10/24: +3 Romney and ABC News/Wash Post 10/21 – 10/24: +3 Romney.
Drip, drip, drip …
WOW, the 7 day rolling average Gallup poll has Mitt Romney up by 7 points over President Barack Obama, 52% to 45%. The gap is widening and with a good debate this coming Monday, Romney could finish Obama off once and for all and break the election wide open.
It would appear that Obama just showing up and doing better than the first debate, which was not hard to do, has not affected the polling. Romney is starting to separate himself.
Hot Air reminds us also that Rasmussen now has Romney up by 2% over Obama in their tracking poll. It appears that their individuals polled were not impressed by Obama’s debate performance either.
Interestingly, Romney’s 49% is solid with or without leaners. Without leaners, Obama only gets to 46%. Among those “certain” to vote, Romney leads 46/44. Republicans now have an eight-point advantage on enthusiasm, 83/75, with independents nearly as enthused as Democrats at 72%.
Romney is starting to see a lot of polls in his favor as seen at Real Clear Politics. This is interesting, ABC News touts the Romney lead in the Gallup poll and in the process references their own recent poll that where an ABC/WAPO poll had Obama ahead of Romney 49% to 46%. Funny they should bring this up because in order to give Obama a three point lead over Romney, the hacks at ABC/WAPO had to provide a +9D sampling. Yea, that is believable. In Obama’s once in a life time election in 2008 Democrats had a +7 turnout. So ABC/WAPO thinks that Democrats are going to turn out even more? Not likely.

Don’t look now but another battleground state is trending to Mitt Romney.
According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama 49% to 47% in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This is yet another example of a state that Obama won comfortably in 2008, 53% – 47%, but is now trailing in 2012.
Mitt Romney now has a two-point lead in Virginia.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Virginia Voters shows Romney with 49% of the vote, while President Obama earns 47% support. One percent (1%) likes another candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The RCP poll has Obama with a slim 0.4% lead over Romney. However, this is including a highly suspect NY Times/Quinnipiac poll that has Obama with an outlier +5 and no description in the poll of what the sampling was. When you dismiss this poll, Romney is actually slightly ahead in the averaging of polls.
