Poll: Most want John Boehner ousted
Politico, by Lucy McCalmont

Original Article

Posted By:congaree53, 10/21/2013 10:31:59 AM

As anger toward the Republican Party grows, a majority of Americans say a GOP-controlled House is bad for the country and want Speaker John Boehner replaced, according to a new poll out Monday. Fifty-four percent of those surveyed say it is a bad thing that Republicans control the House, up 11 percentage points since December 2012, while 38 percent say it is a good thing, the CNN/ORC poll shows. This is the first time a majority is unhappy with the GOP controlling the House since the party gained control of the chamber in the 2010 midterm elections. Sixty-three percent of respondents

This could be result of liars in the media telling less than astute listeners that Obama did not threaten a veto, Harry Reid did not demand his way or no way ... along with a lot of name calling.... .. dems refused to vote for anything except their way etc etc
I would suggest tyhe poll be taken from Lucianne readers, Limbaugh listeners and anyone else that can answer who the Speaker is without telling them.

Last poll I saw even college students didn´t know the name of the Speaker of the House.

This just tells me that the leftmedia did a good job in blaming the Republicans for the shutdown, and the Lo-Fo´s bought it.
If the media would be objective and factual for even a week, Obama would be tarred and feathered.

I assume the pollsters failed to ask the same questions about Harry Reid. Therefore the validity of the poll is incomplete and the analysis dishonest.

The "polls" also show that an overwhelming majority, 68%, think the country is on the wrong track. The "polls" also show Obama´s popularity is crating. The "polls" also show that support for Obamacare is at an all time low, that people are disgusted with BOTH parties and Congress.

Gee #5, political junky that I am, I guess I am a lemming too. John Boehner is a gutless wonder of a Vichy republican who should never have been re-elected to the Speakership. He knew all about the IRS scandal and stood by while the dems did the dirty work. He is a rank coward.

Just because I am one of the millions who don´t like the Speaker please don´t assume I am a lemming. I am a voracious reader who keeps up with the news.

I like how the RAT infested media whores use polls saying Congress has a 11% or whatever favorable rating to compare it to Obama´s dropping-like-a-rock approval rating (remember how CNN´s beared guy spent hours promo´ing Bush´s 36% rating but zilch when dear Obama hit 37%?).

Of course, the inference is that Obama is more popular than those evil, racist, homophobe, terrorist, extortionist, arsonist, wife-beater, jihadist, teabagger, conservative, did I forget racist?, Republicans!

Well, fuggedabotit. If the CNN/ORC poll had asked me, I´d have (1) said Congress isn´t doing its job because DEMOCRATS in the Senate, especially Dingy Harry Reid and Dear Leader(US) Obama, refuse to negotiate with the House and Senate Republicans. As much or more of the blame goes to the Democrats in Congress who have deep-sixed almost every bill coming from the House.

Yes, Boehner and McConnell (who did get his dam dam) need to go. But the problem is the unwilling and unable to negotiate, govern or lead Democrat party from Obama on down.

And why the media won´t do its job. Well, until a Republican/Conservative stands up and talks. And tries to present his case.

We can´t have that in Obama´s America.

When one has retired from the ranks of American domestic political consulting, as I have, you are not really allowed to just quit. You become emeritus, of counsel, senior status and God knows what. Basically your role becomes one of trying to talk active participating democratic consultants to not, as current politics would have it, “jump off the bridge.” There appears in both public and private to be more than usual pessimism and gloom about Democratic chances in 2014. Allow me to point out the following facts — yes, facts, not opinions. Last week’s Washington Post/ABC News poll found that fewer than

   

 



 
CNN/ORC Poll: Majority say

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama´s approval rating has edged up a bit since the end of last year, according to a new national poll. But a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates the number of Americans who hope that his policies will succeed has dropped 12 points since last year and a majority now predicts that his policies will fail. According to the survey, which was released Monday, 45% of the public gives Obama a thumbs-up on the job he´s doing as President. That´s up from 41% in November and December, when the President was at or near all-time lows

GOP ready to surrender

House Republicans are getting ready to surrender: There will be no serious fight over the debt limit. The most senior figures in the House Republican Conference are privately acknowledging that they will almost certainly have to pass what’s called a clean debt ceiling increase in the next few months, abandoning the central fight that has defined their three-year majority. The reason for the shift in dynamics in this fight is clear. Congress has raised the debt limit twice in a row without drastic policy concessions from President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats, essentially ceding ground to Democrats.

Less than a week before President Obama gives his State of the Union address, the president’s job approval rating is mixed: 46 percent approve, and about the same percentage, 47 percent, disapprove. Over the past year, his approval rating has mostly hovered in the mid 40s and has not hit the 50 percent mark since February of last year. His 46 percent approval is up four points from December (42 percent) and up from his all-time low of 37 percent in November. As the president begins his sixth year in office, his approval rating is slightly higher than that of

He ended one war and kept us out of any other,” is the tribute paid President Eisenhower. Ike ended the Korean conflict in 1953, refused to intervene to save the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1954, and, rather than back the British-French-Israeli invasion, ordered them all out of Egypt in 1956. Ending America longest wars may prove to be Barack Obama’s legacy. For, while ending wars without victory may not garner from the historians’ the accolade of “great” or “near great,” it is sometimes the duty of a president who has inherited a war the nation no longer wishes to fight.

The Republican Party’s uphill path

A recent conversation with a veteran of GOP presidential campaigns raised this question: Which, if any, of the recent battleground states are likely to become more Republican by 2016? The consensus: very few. That reality highlights one problem Republicans face as they seek to regain the White House after six years under President Obama. Lots of factors affect elections: the quality of the candidates, the state of the economy, the effectiveness of the campaigns. But in a country whose demographics continue to change, Republicans will begin this campaign with one significant disadvantage. Over the past three decades, the political leanings of

Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they

The most charitable thing you can say about the Republican Party is that it has an image problem. Even if you support its policies, no clear-eyed observer can deny that on any given day the GOP looks clueless, heartless, and gutless. Just take today. For all of President Obama´s problems and their correlation to the future of the Democratic Party (see: lack of credibility and competence), it takes just four stories to see how much worse things are for the GOP. "Invisible Child: Dasani´s Homeless Life" is a wrenching New York Times portrait of girl stuck in poverty in the shadow of Manhattan's opulence. More than that, it's the story

In a new interview with ABC, President Obama concedes that the disastrous rollout of Obamacare has taken a toll on his approval ratings. But he believes the public´s opinion of his work will rise again. "I´ve gone up and down pretty much consistently throughout," Obama said. "But the good thing about when you´re down is that usually you got nowhere to go but up." That certainly sounds comforting for the president and his supporters. But is it true? Actually, there´s no reason Obama´s approval ratings might not continue to slide. In fact, for more than a year, Obama´s ratings have

Americans support the nuclear deal with Iran brokered in Geneva by a two to one margin, according to a new poll. The Reuter/Ipsos survey shows that 44 percent of Americans are in favor of the six-month interim agreement reached in Geneva on Saturday, while 22 percent are opposed to it. Under the temporary agreement, Iran will receive $7 billion in sanctions relief over six months in exchange for accepting restrictions on its nuclear development program. But although the agreement has been touted by the administration as a diplomatic breakthrough, critics have said it could pave the way for Iranian nuclear

On Tuesday, I mocked the Hurricane Katrina/Obamacare comparisons. Hurricane Katrina, after all, killed more than 1,800 people. Obamacare´s Web site isn´t working well yet. Ron Fournier, among others, defends the comparison, arguing that of course the crises themselves aren´t similar. The analogy is really about "the ways that Bush and Obama handled their crises, and [how] those actions changed the public´s view of their presidencies." But that´s precisely the point: The political fallout is driven by the nature of the crises. Or, to put it more starkly, reality drives politics — politics doesn´t drive reality. Start with the basic premise of

WASHINGTON — Despite the disastrous rollout of the federal government´s healthcare website, enrollment is surging in many states as tens of thousands of consumers sign up for insurance plans made available by President Obama´s health law. A number of states that use their own systems, including California, are on track to hit enrollment targets for 2014 because of a sharp increase in November, according to state officials. "What we are seeing is incredible momentum," said Peter Lee, director of Covered California, the nation´s largest state insurance marketplace, which accounted for a third of all enrollments nationally in October.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
