Gallup: Obama approval down to 38 percent

Here’s the latest graph by Gallup showing Obama’s approval is down to 38%:



Looks like a downward trajectory to me. Perhaps he’ll finally get the “Bush treatment” by Wolf Blitzer tomorrow on CNN. Rush likes to play this 2006 montage of Blitzer almost falling all over himself to keep mentioning Bush’s approval rating falling to 36%, all from the same show. The last time he played it was just a few days ago when Obama’s approval hit 39%. Here is a redux:

I’m sure that Obama will get a bump in the polls once the media has time to effectively praise Obama for the triumphant job he did in keeping America safe from Hurricane Irene. Ugh, I think I just threw up in my mouth.

  2. Lol I won’t be happy until it’s 0% them my nickname for him “zero” will have new meaning

  4. By the time 6 Nov. 2012 gets here.. Obama’s approval ratings will have only one place to go, up.. as 0 is as far as he can go down.. unless he slides into the minus area.. which has never been done.. yet.. and with Obama, that is a good possibility..

  5. I just love a ‘take charge’ kinda guy like our illustrious leader. And since he is our intellectual superior, I’m sure he saw this coming and has a plan??!!! I mean who coulda seen this coming??

    Ladies and Gentlemen our tax dollars at work!!

    If this isn’t the biggest clusterfark I have witnessed in awhile, I’m not sure I want to see what is coming for the next year and a half while this moron is in charge!!!

    1. “he is our intellectual superior”. What was his GPA again? Oh right, his academic records along will all his records are sealed. Part of that transparency the Totus had boasted he would bring.

      His GPA probably was “PRESENT”.

        1. Thanks!!! – I’ll remember this.

          I have followed Pat Robertson for over 20 years (have heard him speak in person). Although I may not agree with everything he does/says there is NOTHING “…Ayatollah” about him.

  6. 38 % ? Ha ! …. more like 18 % . Don’t believe any polls people when it comes to obama’s approval polls . Even when Fox displays his polls , don’t believe it .

    1. I have never answered a poll in my life. I don’t have time for that. I say, huh? Bye. Is it possible that only welfare recipients and rabid liberals answer polls? Aaaaahahahaha.

      1. Have you noticed that he isn’t getting the red carpet treatment as much as usual? I think that the media is shifting the public for a regime change.

        1. I wouldn’t go that far. They are just not offering him a pillow, now. He isn’t with a light-year of getting the standard treatment they save for Palin, Bachmann and Perry. For example, do you see ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN raise “questions” about his “faith?”

          1. It may be a bit early to determine who the media will support. I think that the people who fund the winners of presidential elections probably know that Obama’s political capitol is running a deficit, so when I see so much criticism, I tend to think that they are ratcheting him down. Maybe not.

            1. It’s a matter of degree. They may be rachetting Obama down from Deity to Mortal – and they have to not to appear insane. But they still have every Republican lower, and every conservative lower than dog doo.

  8. The striking thing is the disapproval number. once you have pissed off over half the people, your chances grow slim.

    The thing to keep working towards is to getting us a candidate that is a real conservative, not a RINO, or a Buckley baby.

    We need to keep sowing the seeds of discontent in “politics as usual”.

    We need to take the GOP machine over from within, letting the old guard know the status quo will not be tolerated any more.

    Go TEA!!!!!

  9. I should never eat dinner before coming to this site. Ah, after the news this morning about the stupid, ungrateful, selfish, incompitent and spoiled people in this country, I can believe there are still 38 percent of the people who still think dear leader is good for America.

    1. They don’t pay real attention to the issues. They are predominately ignorant and don’t think for themselves.

  10. I remember that montage. Wolf Blitzer cracks me up! You can just hear the excitement in his voice when he reports these HISTORICAL polls. I remember Rush did another montage of Wolf when Castro was going to speak from a long time with the same excitement. (And I thought Chrissy “thrill up my leg” Mathews was bad)

    But the real question is…Why isn’t it down any farther?!! I know its in the 50’s of disapproval rating’s but the rest of the 40% is what scares me! Are they really that blind????

    1. Frustrating, huh? BHO has only one thing going for him, his likeability. Yeah, I know, we righties find that hard to believe but it’s the truth. Most people like the president, they’re just not happy with his performance. Also, a lot of people in this country have all their credibility invested in this man. Hope is all they got left and they’ll be made foolish with a chorus of “I told you so’s” if they abandon him.

      He will crack. There will be a moment when he lets it all out and the people will turn. His true character will reveal itself when he is at his lowest. Probably when Sarah Palin is leading him by 10 points and climbing 6 weeks before the election.

      Pass the popcorn, please.

      BS

      1. What’s with this “like him” B.S.? You can’t like him and your country at the same time. This idiot is trying to bring our country to it’s knees and some people say that he is likable? He has revealed his true character already numerous times, pretty much in everything he says ,does or doesn’t do.
        If some people have their credibility wrapped up in him then too bad, take a good deep breath and admit that he hoodwinked you. Don’t continue to hold up this traitor to American values, admit the facts and swallow your pride and do what has to be done to reverse the downward spiral he put us in.
        Learn from this mistake. Learn that anyone aspiring to be our President has to be looked at, not through the rose colored glasses of fancy phrases that mean nothing, but through a good hard look at who they really are and what they stand for.
        Like him? How can you “like” a pathological liar? Trust is the basis of all relationships and he is not trustworthy.

        1. I never said I liked him. Reread my post. I think he’s an arrogant %[email protected]*!?#&$. Hoodwinked me? I smelled his socialism a mile away. I don’t know how you can deduce from my post that I ever, in any way, shape, or form supported BHO.

          I said the American people, in general, like him. Look at all the polls, that’s what I’m going by.

          NYGino, keep a clear head. We’re on the same team.

          BS

          1. BSScoop, sorry for the misunderstanding. Your post is very clear that you are talking about “most people” and “a lot of people” not yourself. I didn’t mean to infer that I was thinking these are your thoughts and beliefs, far from it.
            I know we’re on the same side of the line scratching our heads wondering how so many people can say they like him and can feel a growing embarrassment and frustration that they were taken in in so many ways. Thanks for the opportunity to clear this up.

        2. Agree. And IMO, “like” him will mean nothing come election day to millions of voters who got drunk on poisoned Kool Aid, have woken up with worse than just a bad hangover, and can’t believe who they got in bed with.

    3. Different voter sample, slightly different question. I believe Gallup is registered voters, Rasmussen likely voters. Gallup uses a 2-choice answer, Rasmussen uses a 4-choice answer.

      My personal spin, Rasmussen is more accurate. Anything below 40% now is illusion, liberals disapproving he is not being liberal enough. They won’t ever vote Republican. At 40%, he’s lost nearly all the few self-described conservatives that voted for him, and most of the centrist.

  11. Go, go, go, go!!!

    Come on President Hussein, you can do it! I dare you, become the worst president in history. You can beat Bush, its easy. Just keep doin what you’re doin.

    BS

    1. BSScoop. Ever see the finish of the 1973 Belmont Stakes when Secretariat won by 31 lengths? That’s his margin of victory, he already won.
