President Obama hits record lows

I guess it was only a matter of time before Obama’s poll numbers dipped below 40%. Oh, how I long for the good old days when presidents poll numbers plummeted because of a self-inflicted scandal – not because our country was being destroyed.

Gallup Daily Tracking Poll

President Obama?s approval rating has sunk to 39 percent in the latest Gallup daily tracking poll, the lowest point of his presidency.

The survey, based on a three-day rolling average, also found that 54 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama?s job handling, a new high.

      So was GW Bush. What does that tell you? It tells me one is not correlated with the other.
      Something even more interesting is President Obama has an approval rating of 45% and disapproval rating of 49% in New York!

          An example is how he failed to listen to the Tea Party people attempting to talk to him while he was shaking hands. He didn’t have to agree with them, but he surely could have listened for at least a minute without blowing them off. How else were they supposed to talk with him anyway? He has plenty of time to listen to the union boss that was in his office almost daily, but I am sure none of these people would have been granted such a chance. I do not agree with those who said that those people were being disrespectful either. The office of the President deserves respect; this particular president by his own actions does not.

            Well, respect is mutual. If they are not even trying to listen to a thing that he says, is he simply supposed to roll over like a whipped dog and say “Ok, I will do everything that you want?” PPffftttt…..

              I never said that O was supposed to “roll over” and do what they wanted. Actually, all they wanted was for him to explain why Biden referred to Tea Party people as terrorists. After all, he is on a listening tour – yeah, right. And since when has Obama had one iota of respect for anyone who disagrees with his positions on anything?

      What’s too bad is that the Republicans didn’t put up a viable candidate, but doubled and tripled and quadrupled down on the ticket that everyone knew would not work. It was almost as if they set out to lose that election!

      Let’s see if they can get it right this time.

      I guess that if you’re a South Dakota voter, your vote for President really doesn’t matter anyway. You don’t have enough clout to influence the Republican primary and not enough electoral clout to influence the general election. South Dakota is, by default, electing any Republican chosen by the states that really count in Presidential elections.

    G.W.JR was sure a winner to.Thanks to him Obama got elected.I find it hard to beleive that MCain and Palin were leading but look how bright she was, nobody wanted her as a vice.

    For the first time I agree with Moses. The GOP did a HORRIBLE job fielding an opponent against Oblabla. I would have voted for Doogie Hauser if he would have ran.
