AP poll: Disapproval of
Obama hits 59 percent

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Mario Trujillo

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/26/2014 7:13:35 PM

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

Comments:
With all the lawlessness of Obama I can´t believe it´s not higher. I don´t know whether to not believe the polls or believe there are so many lo-fo voters that it keeps it higher. Again I say, they never call me! They would get an ear full!

He is even losing some of the 47%! But what it has taken to open people’s eyes.

It´s hard to believe that 41% of the American people are that stupid. Don´t they understand that if our country goes under they will go with it? There have been enough countries throughout history that were on top, before they crashed. Most of them for the same reasons we are dealing with today.

Don´t get cocky. Many of those who disapprove are on the far far left who are mad he hasn´t nationalized "big business" like he has medical and auto companies, or completely opened our borders (which he is on the verge of doing).

IOW, it ain´t what it seems.

Maybe we´re seeing the beginning of a preference cascade (hattip: Timur Kuran) take shape. Because of Obama´s half-blackness, people were fearful of saying anything critical of the president, but once people started noticing a lot of other people feeling the same repulsion towards the president´s leftist policies, the disapproval is beginning to snowball, especially since they learn that elections have real-life consequences.

Watered-down Marxism is 100% of what the so-called Democrat party now stands for. Therefore, any Democrat politician should always receive a disapproval rating of 100%. Actually, there should not even be any Democrat politicians to disapprove of, because watered-down Marxists should not be getting elected - to anything - in the US of A.

Its the Associated Press. They pack their polls like the socialists pack their polls. I believe zippy´s popularity is as substantive as his foreign policy. Nobody likes to admit they´ve been the only one duped, but as more people begin to hear the voice saying the emperor has no clothes they will join the mocking.

Its time to start laughing.

If people can´t put two and two together by now and realize that Obama´s policies are the source of their misery, they are clueless. People are sick and tired of being sick and tired. It´s time for the renewal of Reagan´s morning in America. With each increase in Obama´s disapproval rating, comes hope.

I have a racist poll I´d like to conduct.

First the respondents need to take a test:

1) How many branches are there in the federal government of the USA?

2)What are they?

3)What primary role do they play?

4)From whom did the US gain its independence?

5)In what year did the US declare its independence?

6) In what decade was the US Civil war fought?

Now lets count the scores then see how the same poll results look between those who got a 100% on the test and those who did not.

Yup, many folks ARE that ignorant. They have no idea how economics really work and many of them will never succeed because they don´t. They think you get ahead because someone hands you something and they are waiting around to get theirs. They figure that BO will give it to them. Many expected free housing and cars to go along with free education, free food, free health care, etc.

The reality that most people get success by EARNING it is beyond their understanding.

However, there is another group that believe fervently in liberal/Socialist ideology and BO is their best bet to get it enacted. The fact that liberal policies don´t work is incomprehensible to them, as it is to BO. Rather than blame their ideas for failure, they blame circumstances and implementation. Eventually, when they have a new liberal in place, they will say that BO screwed up. But not now.

The 41% is made up of a ratio of 65% minorities, union members...15% msm, Hollywood , college professors... 20%, who don´t know for sure where they are. Harry Reid would qualify for that group.

When you can´t do anything right and you can´t make anybody happy with anything you do, one would think that the disapproval rating would be close to 100%, with the difference being those too clueless to know what reality is on the other side of the bottle. One would think.

Not to worry. Notice how negative feedback has almost no effect on Obama? He probably took a class specific to this topic, in his preparation for being a mole, "How to Handle Daily, Substantial Criticism You Will Receive as a Result of Working to Destroy Your Host Country".

The first chapter would advise, "Stay away from any news channels, esp Fox. Watch sports. Do not have press conferences. Surround yourself with like-minded people. Stay out on a golf course for extended periods. Travel, extensively, turn off audience mics at State of the Union. Only make speeches to cherry picked audiences, preferably at liberal colleges like Berkely. Say ´Forward´ frequently. Only appear on talk shows like ´The View´(make sure it is RECORDED, so it can be edited for inevitable flubs, gaffs, negatives from audience). Double tint your limo windows so you do not seeall the birds by citizens."

"Finally for your own safety, take an entourage of nine-hundred with you overseas of mostly armed SS agents to thwart enevitable attacks by those who know exactly what you are up to".

Of the 41% who still approve of Obozo, they fall into two broad categories. One is that group that #13 pointed out. That is those who sit around a expect a handout from the government. Paid for by taxing "the rich" of course. The second group are those that never read, watch, or listen to a news story. They are completely oblivious to what goes on in the world except for that that personally affects them. They are completely wrapped up in their own world and just don´t have time to think or worry about anything else. As stated before, those two groups are going to have a very rude awakening in the not to distant future if they don´t wake up and smell the coffee.

It is natural for any normal human to perceive others possessing a thought process equal to their own. Those on this site don’t realize how different we really are.

We debate, share thoughts and ideas, and apply logic to decide our positions based on the facts, life experiences, and plain old common sense. Because of our choice of environments, most of our encounters with the left are with people that have a reasonable thought process but different views. The use of statistics is subjective, i.e. - most welfare recipients are white – larger percentage of black population are receiving it. Their steadfast loyalty to their beliefs is frustrating, and we think that they are the obstacle we need to overcome by winning them over, they aren’t.

Who’s the 41%? We have a multitude of people who hate businesses because of jobs going overseas, they shop at Wal-Mart and want the minimum wage raised. We have union workers that complain about their leadership but still vote as they are told. They include the minorities that accuse the police of not providing protection in their neighborhoods and then protest the police for harassing them. There are groups demanding that the government stay out of their sex lives while lobbying for laws promoting gay rights and free birth control. We have people willing to be paid to vote. And there are those who want to talk about race relations as long as you don’t bring up any minorities’ behavior.

Together they make up our opposition by voting for what they can get for themselves, we vote for liberty and what’s good for the entire country.

Carole King, in her song “Smack Water Jack”, got it right – “You can’t talk to a man, when he don’t wanna’ understand”.

So many of us are wondering at the mental deficiencies of the 41%, but the fact remains, it´s not close enough for the democrats to cheat. They´d need a fleet of car trunks full of votes to balance out real voters. A gift horse´s mouth worthy of gazing at maybe, but I prefer to see this as delicious news. My democrat son-in-law even laughed when I said that Carter will always be Obama´s most grateful fan, for taking him off the worst president evah pedestal. Carter only gave away the Panama Canal, Obama gave away the internet and Eastern Europe. I´ll make a republican out of him yet.

Reading these comments makes me make one point. We employed persons are NOT paying for all the persons who are living off the Federal Government. NO ONE is paying for it as it is ALL deficit, borrowed money. Not a penny will ever be paid back, leading to the destruction of our country. Monopoly money if you will, in reality counterfeit money as it has never been budgeted. Just paper printed on 14th Street in NW Washington.

WESLACO - BCFS Health and Human Services on Wednesday withdrew a proposal to turn a Weslaco hotel into a facility for young illegal immigrants. A media release from the group of non-profit agencies cited "negative backlash caused by information misreported to the public" as the reason for walking away from the project. BCFS last week submitted a request for a conditional use permit to relocate its facility from Harlingen to Weslaco. The agency had agreed to use $3.8 million in non-government funds to buy the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites on FM 1015. BCFS sought to turn the hotel into

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

Last night on Fox News´ Special Report, Kirsten Powers made the case that the kids arriving on the border shouldn´t be treated as illegal immigrants but as refugees. Powers apparently went to the border and talked to some of the kids there and reports they had some harrowing stories of the reasons they made the dangerous journey through Mexico to America. I suspect Powers is right that if more Americans could hear the stories these kids are telling fewer of them would clamor for these kids to be sent home. President Obama probably miscalculated when he refused to go to

Virtually every key House Republican, from Speaker John Boehner on down, has vowed to oppose a conference committee with the Senate´s immigration bill passed last year. And lawmakers working to craft legislation to address the tens of thousands of children streaming across the southern U.S. border say it won´t touch citizenship for illegal aliens, increased visas, or any other topics than border security. But a key veteran of the immigration wars on Capitol Hill is warning that legislation to amend a 2008 law being cited for cumbersome, years-long deportations would theoretically open the door to a conference committee on the controversial

President Obama’s defiant emphasis on executive action reveals a larger failure looming for his legacy: His inability to work with Republicans means that he’s unlikely to score even one significant legislative achievement over the final years of his presidency. Unless Democrats win back the House and hold onto the Senate in November, a scenario dismissed by most political analysts, Mr. Obama has said goodbye long ago to his biggest accomplishments in Congress. They occurred back in 2010, when Democrats controlled the House and Senate, and Mr. Obama signed into law Obamacare, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform act and a two-year extension

Warren said this on the Senate floor while defending the Democrats´ deceptively titled “Women´s Health Protection Act.” “Remember last year´s government shutdown that nearly tanked our economy?” Warren asked. “That fight started with a GOP effort to hold the whole operation of the federal government hostage in order to try to force Democrats and the president to let employers deny workers access to birth control.” Um, no, sorry.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
