As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Approval Rating in Free Fall

President Obama’s approval rating is falling fast and still looking for a bottom, declining below 40 percent for the first time in more than two years in the Gallup daily tracking poll.

Americans, apparently, care about being lied to by their president. And they are seeing the skepticism they’ve long held about Obamacare confirmed as the program crashes on the launch pad.

Obama’s approval rating is at 39 percent today, while his disapproval stood at 53 percent. His approval was at 46 percent as recently as October 8.

The last time Obama was below 40 in the Gallup survey, which averages polling over the previous three days, was in October 2011. His numbers then started to rise as he headed toward reelection the following year.

  1. And may his numbers continue to drop, drop, drop as he and Jay Carney-barker spin those words to the point that only the most loyal progressives can stand to be at his side.

  2. Well, he’s already killed Bin Laden. Not sure what he can do that’s comparable and jack up the numbers. Time to create a disaster or crisis….

    • It’s amazing to me to hear how many Obama supporters supported him because they wanted to be in on the trend to elect the country’s first black president. So, um, does that REALLY qualify someone for being the President of the U.S.? That’s he’s the first black man?

      • BUT it does remind me that after the 2012 election, I had a call from my favorite lib. Her first words: “I can’t believe Romney didn’t have a person of color on his ticket.”
        Why go for quality? Competence? Experience? Nah, the fist and only thing is skin color. After that, gender.
        This well-meaning, do-good person is among the most racist people I have ever met. She just has a differentt race in mind? Or something.
        Sigh.
        She’s still at it, awarding AfAms who have suffered the most, and also gone out to high schools and preached the gospel of victimhood. AND she collects good $$ from foundations who are very busy working on this goal.
        Maybe I should be grateful that this year (at least), they’re not doing/funding the religion of peace. They’re all doing the religion of victimhood.

        And you gotta understand here: she’s white, but one of those who can’t wait to abandon, and indeed jump into the next cutlure/wave.

  3. And if he hadn’t withheld information and lied about Benghazi, the IRS, and Obamacare his numbers would never have risen and he might even be gone by now. This is one corrupt SOB.

    • I have no doubt he would be gone by now. Wonder if the ‘lies’, especially the Big Lie, could be considered ‘election tampering’. At this point, all we can hope for is a mid-term vote of ‘no confidence’ and a legacy of epic failure. I still believe impeachment is within the realm of possibilities,

  4. There are only 2 things that can save his rating.
    1. A major terrorist attack that he responds to with overwhelming force
    or
    2. Republicans pass comprehensive amnesty.

  5. I CANNOT BELIEVE ALL THE TIME THAT IS BEING WASTED ON WHETHER OR NOT OBAMA LIED.
    WHEN WILL AMERICA REALIZE WE HAVE ELECTED A SOCIOPATH AS OUR PRESIDENT !!!!
    OBAMA FITS EVERY CRITERIA OF A SOCIOPATH HIS STRONGEST ASSET BEING HIS “CHARM” !!!!!!!!!!
    WAKE UP AMERICA, OBAMA IS A SOCIOPATH AND AS EVIL AS ONE CAN BE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
