Obama's 47 Percent Approval Lowest of Any President at This Point

Quote:
President Obama's job approval rating has fallen to 47 percent in the latest Gallup poll, the lowest ever recorded for any president at this point in his term.

Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and even Richard Nixon all had higher approval ratings 10-and-a-half months into their presidencies. Obama's immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush, had an approval rating of 86 percent, or 39 points higher than Obama at this stage. Bush's support came shortly after he launched the war in Afghanistan in response to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

He still hit 47%, and made history, and I'm sure he will hit the next low milestone soon enough.

I am beginning to think that if you do not watch the top rated most watched news channel Fox that you must not have a clue because all the people IN THE KNOW seem to watch Fox News.

Change we can believe in!

Impeach the pig and his deport his followers so we can have our country back.

Obama is breaking all kinds of records, the biggest drop ever, most foreclosures and bankruptcies in the first year of anyone in ever in office, the list goes on and on.

I see his ratings dropping to below 45 in the next few months. Another record!!

Obama, the gift that keeps on giving.

The end of liberalism in America is neat thanks to the un-gifted one named Barry Obama!!

Keep it up Barry so we can get rid of your sorry butt as fast as we can.

Can you say "impeach the piece of crap!"

Maybe you should add in the liberals best shows, the shemale freak Maddox and the twice fired Oberman who did not get 1 million combined on any of those days. Everyone with brains was watching Fox of course.

Maybe Obama had those viewers cable cut off for not sending in the get cable free cards.

This is the 4th thread created on this topic
:merge request:

Hey Wapasha (and the others in this thread), Im wondering why you guys keep re-creating this thread after it leaves the front page? The last one had nearly 100 posts in it, so I KNOW you all saw it. The one before had probably 50.

Likewise, HOW IS A 47% APPROVAL RATING WITH A 3% MARGIN OF ERROR SO HORRIBLE WHEN YOUR LAST CANDIDATE LEFT OFFICE WITH A 27% APPROVAL RATING?.

Likewise, his approval dropped because he lost PROGRESSIVE SUPPORT, not because liberals are turning conservative. If you think those progressives will vote Republican in 10 or even 12, I have a bridge in brooklyn to sell you.

You are all aware that 47% + 3% (MOE) = 1/2 of the country. Obamas approval was never higher than 15% above that. He dropped 15% in a year, when Bush dropped 40% in that same amount of time.

When you guys keep blatantly touting useless claims like this, it only makes you look silly and unappealing to moderates. Trust me on this.

Someday you all are going to believe me when I tell you Obama's the new Reagan and, God willing, will be admired just as well. Until then, you will continue to salivate over your arch nemesis (Obama) and forget the identical history of your hero (Reagan).

Yes. That is Reagan's approval rating down there by 40%. Yes, that was Reagan who watched unemployment rise well over 10% for almost 3 years of his presidency. And, yes, that was Democrats making the same "worst president ever" remarks about Reagan back then.

The Democrats were wrong then and so are you today.



Pollster.com: Obama as Reagan


Quote:
With a bit more than 10 months of approval data on Obama, we can now make a more meaningful comparison than was possible at the first 100 days look.
The similarity of approval trajectories is striking for Reagan and Obama. Reagan started lower, but since the 3rd month of office the two have moved along quite similar paths.
Of the ten post-war presidents in the chart, Reagan and Obama currently stand as the two lowest at this point in their first term. (Clinton fell lower early, but was recovering at this point before another decline and rise.) Reagan finished as the second lowest just before his midterm in 1982, ahead of only Truman.
