Holy friggin’ moly. Obama approval rating plunges to new low after healthcare vote

Just yesterday, Democrats were saying that the healthcare vote would cause their approval numbers to soar. Hmmmm. Might be time to rethink that theory.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of men Strongly Disapprove along with 39% of women. Most African-American voters (58%) Strongly Approve while most white voters (53%) Strongly Disapprove.

Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans Strongly Disapprove as do 52% of unaffiliated voters. Forty-seven percent (47%) of Democrats Strongly Approve.

For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. That negative rating had never topped 42% before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55%) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.

In the words of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, happy trails to you, President Obama, ‘til we meet again.

What I find interesting is that only 44% ‘Somewhat Approve’ of Obama. That’s a minus 2 to those that ‘Strongly Oppose’. That can’t be good.

Obama lied to the people of America.
Soros is the puppet master pulling the strings, and Obama is the puppet. It’s time for someone to go to jail or worse.
I have had it with Congress and the Senate. Nov. 2010 can’t get here fast enough.

Obama is a frontman, he sings the songs, he works the crowd…
But he does’nt write the songs, because he can’t. While he is a true believer, he’s not able to write the songs he sings.

He really did’nt lie to America, he is who he is, & the information about Obama, & those who have surrounded him during his life is out there. But the MSM refused to cover him because they were/are heavily invested in his sucess. The MSM were/are the liars, more so then Obama, & when he fails, the MSM will fail as well.

Really, only talk radio, FoxNews, Drudge, Breitbart & a few investigative reporters/authors have reported the truth about Obama & dug into his backround & connections. I have my $h!tl!st when it comes to MSMers I will hold accountable for this mess. I look forward to the rest of America to catch up & start asking questions.

Little wonder that Obama’s ratings are falling. Turning healthcare over to the government makes as much sense as dialing 911 for beer.

now these assholes have written into the bill that it can never be changed-and they think that will make it past SCOTUS….they are really beyond my wildest imagination. I just hope that this president and the douche bags on the hill realize that if they pass this durge, the revolution will immediately begin. They can’t be that stupid.

I don’t think it’s a matter of them being stupid. I mean, for the most part, the people that we’ve elected are very bright. The problem is that they have, on both sides, become so friggin’ disconnected from reality and the people they represent. And for the Dems it’s even worse, as it’s become clear lately that not only are they disconnected, they just don’t care what we think. They know best, it’s for the greater good, and we’re too stupid to know what we need. And even THAT attitude is a failing facade for some of them, who have demonstrated such elitism lately that it turns my stomach.

The idea of revolt (and I can’t deny that it’s valid) worries me…a lot. We’ve been peaceful protesters so far, but it’s not working, and the next logical step scares the hell out of me. Because all it’s going to take is for one small group of “right-wing tea-bagger extremists” to take up arms and we’ll all be under military rule and the game will be over for real.

That is the thing elitist like Mitchell say things like well these people dont know what is good for them so we just have to do what we have to do regardless of what they say and that is EXTREMELY dangerous talk, much more dangerous than a revolution by the people who so far has been peaceful. Yes there are of course extreme right wing people that can take it too far, but that is where we come into play the ones that have our heads screw on right. We need to stop being so silent now.

Oh yes, the Liberal Left can be that stupid (and more, Climategate for example). We can only pray for a peaceful revolution through “real” education and use the ballot box to get those dam bums out of office. Look at their poll numbers sinking like the Titanic:) Their ship is sinking and they are on deck busy at arranging the deck chairs…….

Yes, I believe they are that stupid and think that majority of Americans idolize Karl Marxs, Sociaism/Progressive/Communism just like they do. What they fail to realize is that a majority of Americans grew up in the U.S.A. not the U.S.S.R.
