Obama’s Approval Rating Mirrors 2010
Weekly Standard, by JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

Original Article

Posted By:rightwingkevin, 9/27/2012 5:41:23 PM

For all of the wishful thinking in the mainstream press about President Obama’s positioning 40 days before this election, Obama’s approval rating looks remarkably similar to what it was on this date in 2010 — shortly before his party lost a historic 63 House seats and 6 Senate seats. On September 27, 2010 — exactly two years ago — Rasmussen Reports showed Obama’s net approval rating among likely voters to be minus-3 percentage points (with 48 percent approving and 51 percent disapproving).

Comments:
Very interesting.

Romney and Ryan can jump way ahead by trouncing Obama and Biden in the debates - which they can easily do - they mustn't mess up this golden opportunity.

Why is Obama spending so much time in Ohio if he's up by 10 points? Answer: He's not up at all; the race is neck-and-neck, and that's never good for an incumbent.

So, same numbers before the Poseur was shellacked two years ago. I think that, the Economic malaise, CONTINUED 11-12% Real Unemployment, Health Care driving costs UP, Gas twice the price, Manufacturing on fumes and the 1.3% GDP numbers revised DOWN, Again, should tell you something.

If Independents aren't supporting the Marxist after 4 YEARS, they certainly won't in 40 days.

Nobody in the Obama administration, or the Media, is talking about 2010. They're talking about 2008! Guess What..all of those voters in 2010 are still out here and they're more motivated than ever. Add to them the disenchanted and the Independent voters and you have Romney winning, hands down. I'm sure NONE of the Pollsters are using 2010 as their model and that's where the surprise is going to come in. Obama is going down!

This is another reason I have been citing to friends when I try to keep spirits up (my own included) about what I believe will be a Romney landslide on Nov. 6. Media was caught so off guard at the nationwide GOP landslide in 2010. There are no mentions of those elections during the run-up to the November election. And nothing in the economy, foreign policy, etc. of the nation has changed since then, except perhaps becoming worse. Why in the world would voters attitudes change from what they were in 2010?

In Wisconsin, especially, they went through 2 years of upheaval, retained their governor by a wide margin in a recall effort, and then last week saw the courts nullify one of that governor's most popular acts. I'm certain Wisconsin voters are ready to vote overwhelmingly for Romney in November even tho the current polls don't show it.

#1 - You just gave me an idea for a rally sign.... TEA Party Express is coming to town again this Sunday - same day Barcky shows up here for THREE DAYS - speech/lecture at a local school (of course), then ''debate prep'' at a posh hotel NOT on the Strip....but surrounded by expensive homes and a man-made lake. No housing crisis to be seen out there....

But the sign I'm thinking of is this:

My Obama Approval Rating: -2012

But my favorite is of a coiled snake, a la Gadsden 'Don't Tread on Me' flag, looking angry and ready to strike, with caption: You Were Warned!

As for 2010, the air feels EXACTLY THE SAME now as it did then - maybe even more intense. Here's my metric: My son, in the military, actually talks POLITICS with me now - and he tells me lots of interesting things - nothing at national security level or any level of secret, but about the attitude and morale he's surrounded by. The good guys all want out if Obama is re-elected. That will leave our military - and the big toys - in the hands of the Affirmative Actions and their perfumed princes.

We are 40 days out - let's follow that one pastor's idea and try 40 days of prayer, beginning today...... ? We need a miracle...

All well and good--but remember--it's all about turnout. In 2010 nobody was paying much attention--midterm elections have lower numbers voting. THIS time turnout will be much higher--and women have bought the "Romney will outlaw birth control" nonsense in droves. EVery poll shows women still voting for Obummer overwhelmingly. UNLESS MEN SHOW UP AND STAND IN LINE IN DROVES Obama will win again--based on the electoral college, not popular vote.....

I wonder if CNN "conservative" strategist Alex Castellanos is still so sure of "The Chosen One's" ultimate victory on November 6?

By the way, with those cheesy moustaches of theirs, don't Alex Castellanos and White House lackey/henchman David Axelrod look like longlost brothers?

Heck, they might even try starting a comedy act like the Smothers Brothers someday. (I'll leave it to you as to whom would portray the dim-witted Tommy and the thoughtful Dicky Smothers in THAT comedic tandem.)

What worries me is that s very small segment of the country will decide this election and the future of our country. Within the swing states, there are crucial counties. That's what keeps me up at night. I can do all I can in my state, but its already going for Romney. Ohio and Florida... crucial. And whats with the military ballots?? anyone hear anything about those yet? Are they being sent out.

Rasmussen poll surveys usually have a Republican lean, but it seems to have gotten stronger in the last few weeks. It has also been stronger in some years than others. Rasmussen got reasonably good results in years like 2006 and 2008 when their polls were close to the consensus. However, their polls were the least accurate of the major polling firms in 2010, when they had an especially strong Republican house-effect.

I am going to be a poll observer on election day. Went for training the other day. There are so many volunteers on the Republican side that they are going to have a hard time finding a place for everyone. (In 2008 they had about 50.) It's the first time I've ever volunteered for anyone's campaign. The anger and distrust on our side is so deep that I was uncomfortable in that room with all of them. The worst thing is that if the governor is a democrat (our is until November 6!), then the poll chief judge is a democrat. That judge is the one who decides to rule on anything we find suspicious. I'm a little concerned.

Obama is going to get >90% of the Democrat vote, Romney is going to get >90% of the Republican vote, and most of the independents (I'm betting >60%) are going to vote for Romney. Whichever side gets a bigger turnout of their base will win the election.

If we had a much better candidate on the top of the ticket, I think we could reasonably have expected a Republican landslide election similar to what occurred in 1980, 1984, 1994, or 2010. As it is, I think the best we can hope for is a repeat of 2004.

All of the MSM polls currently anticipate that the Democrats will have a much better turnout than they did in 2008, which is nothing more than a liberal fantasy.

I live in Colorado Springs but just visited Aspen, to view the Aspen changing colors. While enroute to/from Aspen and while in Aspen/Snowmass, I saw Romney bumper stickers and yard signs everywhere. I saw ONE (1) Obama bumper sticker and it was on a Missouri tag - probably travelers.

Aspen is a Hollywood/Jet setter community but I didn't get an Obama sense while there.

Reports say Colorado is an Obama swing state. If you discount the Denver metroplex and Boulder, the rest of the state is solidly red for Romney. BTW: Ryan is loved by the Repubs here.


Denver station KHOW seems to think Obama's got it in the bag. I don't think so. Nov 6th will be a whitewash for Romney.

@#22: Chris Wallace is highly overrated. He is merely echoing the MSM polls for story effect. Wait until his Sunday program where he`ll hammer the GOP talking head of the day with the skewed polling. He`s creating controversy where none exists. That`s why Fox is not all it`s cracked up to be. They are leaning more and more left every day an once you begin hiring liberals they wreck everything so don`t expect Fox to be a cheerleader for Romney/Ryan.

I can't help but thinking back to 1980 and worrying why Jimah was going to swamp Reagan, say, how did that election turn out? Next, I personally am thrilled with the MSM reports, Sure it will be an O landslide, except that just maybe, his folks knowing that it is a landslide for the anointed one, will stay home, it is in the bag, no sense wasting time and effort. We of the Conservative SPRING are so motivated, we will turn out, we do not have any option.

I hope #14 is right about the "feel" this year, but several Tea Party friends and I don't feel it. Add to that that this is a general election, and the turnout profile will be very different from 2010.

Kudos, #25. Every precinct must be watched, especially in swing states like NC. This election has been set up to be stolen.

We must be very concerned, and do whatever we can to avert what seems to be on the horizon.

I live in Aurora, a suburb of Denver. My current avocation is to watch and count bumper stickers when I'm out driving. I rarely see Obama bumper stickers. The ratio about 1:1 on bumper stickers--oddly hardly anyone does have them this year.

However, I had to go downtown yesterday and did see about 5 Obama stickers down there. In 2008 it would have been about 50.

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed.

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.
