Define irony? Barack Obama needs to hold a Democrat Senate and gain the House in the 2014 to further Obamacare and to finish the devastation that his administration and policies have brought upon America. However, his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, that may cost Democrats the Senate and lose more seats in the House. According to a recent poll, incumbent US Sen. Democrat Mark Pryor is in real trouble against his Republican challenger, Tom Cotton. The poll currently shows that Cotton leads Pryor, 46% to 42%. Obamacare is weighting down Democrats with an upset electorate.

A recent poll shows U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Dardanelle, gaining ground in his bid to unseat Democrat U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor. The poll results also show the Arkansas’ governors race to be tied up, and U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Little Rock, with an advantage in the race for lieutenant governor

In the U.S. Senate race, Cotton had 46% support from poll respondents and Pryor had 42%. This is a favorable shift for Cotton compared to an Oct. 24 Impact Management poll that had Cotton at 43% and Pryor at 41%.

The poll further shows that Barack Obama’s Obamacare is sinking Democrats chances in Arkansas to retain the Senate seat. Check out the Independents against Obamacare.

The race for Governor is a dead heat; however, in a midterm election if Republican voters are energized in their vote against Obamacare, that will tilt the balance in favor of the GOP candidate from its current tie, Democrat Mike Ross, 42, Republican Asa Hutchinson, 42.

Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Job Approval Rating Falls to Low of 38% … Obamacare at 34%, Handling the Economy 37%, Not Honest & Trustworthy 52%


According to the UK Daily Mail, a recent Quinnipiac poll has President Barack Obama’s job approval rating continuing to fall, down to 38% while a whopping 57% disapprove. Barack Obama’s poll numbers are reaching epically bad levels as there is no end in sight for Americans finding out further bad news regarding Obamacare and the 2000 unread pages in how it affects people’s lives. Americans continue to find out and realize that they were lied to and the impacts are directly being felt. Obama is seeing lows across the board in handling the economy, healthcare, foreign policy and is seeing support from key groups like Latinos and Millennials completely fall apart. But wait, there is one thing that Obama gets high marks in, 52% polled say that Obama is not honest or trustworthy.

Once a president loses the trust of the people, they are finished, #You Lie!


Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush’s following Hurricane Katrina.

The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 per cent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 per cent saying they disapprove.

The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 per cent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 per cent margin.

Worse for Obama’s fast-approaching legacy-building years, the public believes he is not ‘honest and trustworthy,’ by a 52–44 per cent score. A smaller majority, 51 per cent, said he lacks ‘strong leadership qualities.’
