New Gallup poll: Obama job approval matches all-time low

by editor on April 17, 2011

We look forward to the day when the line charting President Obama’s approval rating crosses the line charting the unemployment rate. And at the rate we’re going, that day isn’t too far off.

obama-chin-up

His approval is down, but his chin is still up

The Los Angeles Times reports on Obama’s latest Gallup disaster:

It could be gas prices, the budget debate, or simply the usual ups and downs of public opinion polling. But President Obama’s approval rating has dipped to a five-month low in Gallup’s daily tracking poll, reverting to post-midterm election lows.

… Obama’s low approval rating is not the result of the major speech he delivered on Wednesday. Some of the polling took place before he delivered the speech. Rather, a Gallup official believes the results reflect broad public dissatisfaction with the economy.

Forget the obesity epidemic we supposedly have in this country. If 41% still think this guy’s doing a good job, what we have is a stupidity epidemic.

Looking at that picture all I can think about is Mussolini. I wonder if he looked at a lot of Mussolini’s pictures or something.

He does have that arrogant Mussolini look about him. He thinks he is above everyone else and the masses are all ignorant, wait till 2012 and may the voters show who has the upper hand!!!

A few questions for the swami, Mr. Administrator, or anyone else that can answer them. How does Gallup, Rasmussen, Zogby, any of these “polling” people, decide who to call for answers to their questions? They have never called me or anyone I know.

Who is so foolish as to belive a poll of 1000 “likely voters” means anything when we have over 10 million voters, according to the numbers when the Obummer was elected? I don’t think much of their numbers, they are not asking enough real, yes I did voters what they think now.

When are we going to see a poll of 1 million voters, not likely voters, so we peons can get a more realistic picture of what people think about any politician? When I see one I might think the pollsters are trying to get a real opinion instead of a percieved one.

Obama has a 41% approval rating? Bullshit. Don’t come to the vast, rural spaces of the southwest and spout that nonsense. His approval rating might match that of Congress but I doubt it. Come on down Gallup people! Do a real poll where the common man lives!

“Come on down Gallup people! Do a real poll where the common man lives!”

Wha!?!?!? Say wha?!?!?!? We’d have to get up off of our sorry asses and do some real work for that to happen. We do that and we miss blue margarita nite at Shakey’s Pizza, no way! We’ll stay in our comfortable offices and make twenty phone calls to people we’ve talked to before and call it a hundred and stack the numbers; a little number crunch here, a little number crunch there, and voi la, an opinion poll is born! Who needs facts? Facts are so bourgeois, pfffft, pfffft, ppfpfffffffffffffft, here try this man!

So what you are saying is, “No way that 41% of Americans are that effing stupid.” I hope you are right. BTW, I dont put any stock in polls either.

No, no, it’s just me being overly sarcastic and cynical. The pollsters never call me anymore because they already know what I’ll say. I answered a telephone poll some several years ago and the liberal chick on the other end of the conversation was trying to lead my responses by the types of questions she kept asking me. We finally agreed to disagree, she hung up and I went back to drinking my beer. I’m sure she was glad to get off the phone anyway. I made her work her little marxist-socialist ass off for every stupid question she asked me, and believe me, I could tell she didn’t like or even agree with most of my answers. I don’t think you can just ask a small sampling of people questions and ‘project’ your findings upon a larger canvas of the population. In theory, it might be possible, but I tend to believe that the so called science of sociology is less about science and more about smoke and mirrors, but then that’s just me.

Yeah, I had a census worker call me to ask me my color (even though I filled it out in time and all), I told him I was American, we argued for 20 minutes. He probably changed my answer but to what I’m not sure cause I don’t have a color I am a US citizen and thats all that matters. Call me green cause thats all the government takes from me is my green.

I filled out American, too. My cousin had someone visit him the last census and ask him his ethnicity, cause he put American back then, too. The police had to be called on the census worker who insisted that American wasn’t an answer they could accept. He said that was funny since he was born and raised in America, and followed American culture and social norms… How can that not be an accepted answer…

They had that one poll that was totally skewed libral… they only asked like 537 people. Where do they get a crackpot number like 537 and decide that that is enough for a accurate poll? That is that fuzzy math for you!

Folks once thought in great numbers that Obama had a vision for America. Slowly they are coming to realize that vision is known as “North Korea.”

Obama’s approval rating will plummet to 12% once gas prices hit $5.00 a gallon and inflation really kicks in this summer. He’s clueless and we’re paying the price of his incompetency.

He’s not clueless or incompetent. He’s doing exactly what he said he would do. His plan is working just fine.

sablegsd – sad but true. He’s doing zackly what he promised. I don’t think this was the kind of change people had in mind, though.

KimmyQueen

That is true. Only those that TRULY heard him know that this is true.

Collapse the system!

Yes you have to listen to what he does not say in between each statement. That is where the truth is hidden.

Unless he’s just promising to spread the wealth around or make the cost of energy necessarily skyrocket. We don’t need no NASA we can do it with windmills and solar panels – to the moon and beyond.

I don’t ever recall the Times or any other libtard media outlet saying that George W. Bush’s low poll numbers were caused by “the usual ups and downs of public opinion polling”. I’d bet the rent that the Demtards at the LA Times hated printing this story.

Want to see Obama’s amazing credentials at work? Look through Detroit. Want to see his amazing stimulus funds at work? Check your local big banker’s wallet. Want to see his much touted budget fixes? Check out the welfare office, and count the illegal alien to legal citizen ratio.

I agree with Trump. He’s the worst president ever.

I just don’t see the Reagan amongst the contenders. Herman Cain, I could see doing the job well. But will he run? Most likely not.
