Obama’s Approval Drops to 41%

Friday, April 15, 2011


The latest Gallup Daily tracking three-day average is more bad news for President Obama. His job approval has sunk to an anemic 41%. This ties his low as president, which he registered three times previously — twice in August 2010 and once in October 2010.

July 2009-April 2011 Trend: Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president? % Approve

Gas prices now above $4 a gallon in many markets and analysts forecasting $5 a gallon by the Memorial Day, coupled with Obama’s decision to involve the U.S. in the Libyan civil war, and unemployment near 10% are all likely factors for Obama’s declining approval ratings.

    No one from the progressive side seems to have the stomach for a challenge, and the coillection of ignorant children on the other side are funny, but utterly hapless. Plus, the PResident can now lay the blame for a lot of this at the feet of the Rushpubliscums, and he will; he may be a study in medicrity when it comes to governance, but he’s a first-class campaigner.

    I’ve given up on unseating him. My attention will be focused on who is running down the ticket from him.

    “mediocrity.” I type like I think-poorly…

  3. Tiny Dancer says:

    Obama’s job approval numbers will be in the high 20’s by the end of 2011 and the teens by the 2012 election.

    He’s a terrible president. A DINO Democrat and a tool of Wall Street.

    Remember back, back, back to 2004 and the reason cited for why voters gave George W. Bush a second term?

    “He should be given a chance to finish what he started.”

    Maybe IQ tests should be required to vote? ;-)

  5. Mets Fan says:

    I think Debbie raises a valid point.

    When you look at some of the nomcoms we’ve elected president, from Nixon (twice) to Reagan (twice) to Poppy Bush, and Bush II (twice), it makes me question the intelligence of the American people? Obama doesn’t deserve a second term but sadly, I’m sure he will get one and by the end of his eighth year, gas prices will be $7.50 a gallon and the nation’s unemployment will still be at 9%.

  6. The job of president is thankless. No question about it. But, no one forces a man or woman to run.

    If you view Obama from a strictly meritocratic perspective, he’s done a less than stellar job as president and the polls reflect this. He doesn’t, in my opinion, deserve to be reelected.

    Obama will be in Bush territory by year’s end.

    The gas prices will sink his reelection. This all began with Libya. But Obama can count on the support of Chevron and Exxon-Mobil in 2012. He’s transferring sums out of the US economy to Big Oil in numbers that must make Bush and Cheney grin from ear to ear.
