Obama’s Approval Numbers at Their Lowest Ever

Wednesday, March 30, 2011


If President Obama thought attacking Libya for “humanitarian” reasons would help him with his job approval numbers then he’s in for a major wake-up call.

According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, the president’s job approval numbers are at their lowest level ever.

• American voters disapprove 48% – 42% of the job the president is doing

• Even more troubling for the White House, 50% say Mr. Obama does not deserve to be re-elected in 2012

Both numbers are all-time lows, according to Quinnipiac.

Regarding Libya, support for President Obama’s unconstitutional military mission splits along party lines, with 48% of Democrats approving. Only 40% of Republicans and 38% of independent voters voice support.

    Opportunities abound for Democratic, Republican and independent challengers in 2012. The prevailing wisdom that says Obama is unstoppable just don’t hold water and I think we may be entering an new era in US politics where one-term presidents are the order of the day. Maybe the tradition of the presumed two-term model is broken anyway?

    As a retiree, I can tell you going two years with no Social Security COLA and trying to pay for big increase in food and gasoline has created a hardship for me and I blame President Obama. I’m so tired of his supporters blaming Bush for his shortcomings that I could scream. For my money, the buck begins and ends at the White House and I can tell you that if I’m still alive in 2012, I will not be voting for Barack Obama again. He doesn’t deserve another term. If it’s between him and a Republican, I’ll stay home.

  3. Feminazi,

    I’m with you. I wouldn’t vote to reelect Obama if you gave me the keys to a house in Malibu and paid the property taxes for a decade.

    I don’t reward failure to lead and I don’t vote for DINO Democrats.

  4. Tiny Dancer says:

    Libya has transformed Democrats into baby Hawks.

    Never in my life have I seen so many Democratic Obama supports cheer his decision to attack Libya. All the vegan Hippies are suddenly he-men and he-women! It’s bizarre.

  5. Peace Nick says:

    I just wish this president would devote a 10th the energy to jobs that he squanders on wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and now, Libya.

    The American people would be much better off.

  6. CriticalEyes says:

    I personally would like to see Obama lowered into the ground. I had enough of him a year ago!

  7. Critical Eyes,

    Millions of Single-1 filers are discovering when they go to H&R Block or use Turbo Tax that the tax cut Obama is trumpeting as one of his accomplishments isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be.

    Single-1 filers are finding they OWE for 2010 thanks to what Obama’s done to the deduction schedule.

    I’ll be blogging on this during the weeks to come. We’ve got to replace him in 2012.

  8. mauigirl says:

    I’m not in favor of this action in Libya. But let’s just make sure if he is replaced in 2012 it’s not with Michelle Bachmann or some other nutjob.

  9. Rachel says:

    It’s interesting you brought up taxes. I file single-1 and last year, I got back $219. I do my own taxes and this year, I owe the IRS $688. My salary is slightly more this year and I mean about $2,000 more for 2010 versus 2009. My brother says we should all be filing single-0. Something just doesn’t add up with Obama’s claim that we’re paying less federal taxes. I blame the debt and the three wars.

  10. Jolly Roger says:

    Unless the Rushpubliscums bring someone with a functioning brain forward, we’ll get jammed up again in 2012. And I am pretty confident that the Rushpubliscums won’t find anyone with a brain, because they’ve already run those people out of the party.

    Concentrate on the downslate. A milquetoast weakling like Obama can be pushed in the correct direction, if we bring forth enough legislators to push him.

  11. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    My expectation is a push to reinstate the military draft on Obama’s watch.

    He’s a busy boy with grand designs on Pakistan and Iran. Believe me, if Obama turns control of the Libya mission over to NATO and things go bad, US ground troops will be there within a week, further stretching an already burdened military.

    All of this costs bucco dineros. It’s little wonder to that people are getting hit with a larger tax bill. Obama is the sneakiest president I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen then all the way back to Nixon.

    No wonder 50% of people polled say Obama shouldn’t be reelected.

  12. Jolly Roger says:

    I’d LOVE to see a reinstatement of the draft. That is the only way these wars are going to end. As soon as the Young Rushpubliscums partying down at the college have to do more than put a yellow magnet on their Daddylacs, there will be a whole bunch of new pacifists.

    Oh, and I just found out about this. The President’s popularity is much higher according to the Apologist Press, who always tilt to the right.

    No way on the draft, Jolly Roger. Not sacrificing my kids for some power monger in D.C. with visions of empire dancing in their heads.
    Let those who favor wars, or humanitarian bomb dropping, put their asses on the line.

    But just like Maui girl said…. we may be stuck w Obama as the “lessor evil” than the other choices– like Newt Gingrich, Huckabee, Romney, Donald Trump or the Tea Party crazies like Bachmann or Palin.

    As much as I have long list of contentious items about Obama, all of the above options are even worse. I refuse to vote for a spoiler that would let the above candidates take office.

    Canada is looking better all the time.

    LMFAO @ IDIOTS LIKE “JOLLY ROGER”! “Al-Qaeda doesn’t exist anymore” “Obama is never wrong” “Obama is He-Man! He’s the Master of the fucking Universe!” “He could NEVER do ANYTHING wrong!” *applause* LMFAO Do you, “Jolly Roger”, and people like you, “CONVENIENTLY” forget one of “His” biggest points while still running?
    “I’m going to bring the troops home!” *more applause*………………………………………………… and then………………………………………… as soon as he’s elected……………………………………………………… “Well, maybe that’s not such a GREAT idea right now?”
    AS IF HE HAD SOME SORT OF INSIDE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THINGS OUT EAST………. and then, after he’s elected……. when he REALLY DOES have “inside knowledge”………. he sends MORE troops? Is not that a HUGE fucking wake up sign to anyone who voted for him? It’s SO fucking sad to see how FEW people REALLY understand politics. People being branded as “Rushpublicscums” in EVERY post….. Then white kids being branded as “natural” racists…. At least some of us “RUSHPUBLISCUMS” actually WENT to college. Oh, and let’s reinstate the draft….. since you’re too fucking old and worthless to be a part of it! Let’s talk shit about going to war, but insist that people that don’t agree with it be a part of it! How cute!
    And let’s insist that WE THE PEOPLE have ANY influence on a person with no morals and values, other than what HE believes, himself! Let us agree with “EVERYONE” that we’re not allowed to eat or drink certain things “because it’s bad for you!” On THAT note, I’ll be DAMNED if I let someone tell me I can’t buy a Happy Meal for my son because SOMEONE ELSE decided that “it’s not good for him!” Let’s go the route of Russia over the past 40 years and have lines over a mile long for a piece of BREAD. Let’s go the route of Libya or Egypt or plenty of any other fucking 3rd world middle eastern countries and just start killing everyone who doesn’t agree with what YOU have to say!
    Seriously; I’m not saying what happened in Libya or Egypt was right, but, still….. people like you turn it into a fucking joke when you try to make everyone else relate to it, and try to FORCE “us”, through false accusations and propaganda, to believe that YOU are in the right! I’m all for people deciding how to live their lives….. and it’s fucking HILARIOUS how people like you try to defend that right, but then want to dictate HOW they have a right to live how they choose.
    And sometimes “they” CHOOSE to be ruled…… and then, that’s STILL not good enough for people like you! I wish you could see how hard I’m laughing and how big I’m smiling right now…… Oh well. Just picture Obama earlier tonight during his press conference about the budget “disaster” being averted, with his shit eating grin and FAKE “comforts” to “the American People” about NOTHING.
    “Uhh, well, I’d like to inform you, that, uhh, well, you can go camping this weekend…. if, uhh, that’s what, uhh, you like to, uhh…. do?” lmfao Like anyone who doesn’t know anything didn’t know that our government would take care of stupid things like this before it was too late.
    And let’s NOT forget that leftist Democrats want everyone to be “equal”. Which equals Socialism. Gee, I wonder why folks are complaining paying MORE than usual on their taxes? Hmm….. Could it be because democrats are ACTUALLY sneaky and work to make it so that every one pays the same amount in taxes? No, that couldn’t be, cause all they do is work for tax cuts for “the poor” right? Right. I forget that the wealthiest people basically pay for everything “poor” people get for free! How cute is that? lmao
    In closing, I’d just like to state that I’d rather have Clinton’s dumb ass back in office over someone who CLAIMS to “genuinely care” for the American people, only to kick us all in the crotch and laugh as he does it!

  15. Mynd Control says:

    btw, I also meant to make a point of the name calling and branding as something that liberals do to conservatives all the time. “As racist as a white kid in Tennessee?” Wow. That’s not conservative based republicanized racism, right? lmao
