Skip to comments.Obama Hits Lowest Approval Mark
Posted on 02/08/2010 12:43:15 PM PST by maddog55
Independent voters see Pres. Obama in a negative light by a nearly 2-1 margin, according to a new Marist College survey, while almost half of voters say he has failed to meet their expectations.
The poll, conducted Feb. 1-3, showed just 44% of registered voters approving of Obama's job as president. 47% disapprove. But among indie voters, Obama's approval rating sits at a terrible 29%, while his disapproval rating is at 57%.
Obama's 44% job approval rating is the lowest he has scored in any non-internet poll since moving into the WH, according to a review of data compiled by Pollster.com.
And while GOPers strive to avoid attacking Obama personally, for fear of offending voters who see him in a favorable light personally, even that aura of invincibility is wearing off. Independent voters view Obama negatively, too, by a 39% favorable to 52% unfavorable margin. All registered voters still see Obama favorably by a 50%-44% margin, but that's down 5 points in just 2 months.

The more we open the eyes of America, the more those numbers will plunge where the belong!
Remember, this is happening even WITH the MSM cheerleading his every move!
It is their failure as well!
By 2012, a ham sandwich will be able to beat him.
He can't change his policies, he will only change the rhetoric.
this reminds me of sarahs RNC speach.. “ the Presidency is suppose to be more than personal decovery”
Not the lowest; just the lowest so far.
One last time... Bush’s fault...?
Somewhere....Jimmy Carter is smiling.
By 2012, his ratings will be so low they won’t be worth flushing. Mark my words.
Lets HOPE this ISN’T the lowest rating for this fraud, impostor and liar.
At 90% off, are they cheaper than clay pigeons?
I can only approve of their use for bird-baths. :)
And, he still doesn’t get it & never will!
What portion of that half are those who were expecting the "Obama stash" to provide for their mortgage payments and other assorted freebies?!
And it doesn't take into account those from the other half who feel Obama *has* met their expectations, i.e., total failure!
I, for one, had very low (and negative) expectations of Obama, and I haven't been disappointed yet.
Possibly, considering he's a muslim.
LoL! 90% off L0L!
Let’s hope Barry maintains that downhill momentum.
In this household, Hussein has been holding steady at a 0% approval rating.
Who will be the first brave “mainstream” journalist to:
a. state plainly Obama is not up to the job?
b. state the true disconnect between Obama’s popularity among the general public and the black community?
c. state unequivocaly that Obama is indeed a socialist?
I dare say there are none that I am aware of other than conservative talk radio.
My brother got me one as a joke for my birthday last year. I used it for a White Elephant gift for Christmas. The “winner” is planning to use it as a clay pigeon...
I guess it won’t get recycled next Christmas!
No bird (except a s**tbird) would want to go near that.
The rhetoric never seems to have changed at all; he says everything and means nothing in nice sounding empty phrases. It’s all about him and his personal need to transform the nation to be about him.
Yeah, two more long years. What I don’t get is independents have a low approval of the bum, most of his base is dissatisfied with him and most of his own party is moving away from him and yet they all love the guy. Go figure.
Are they still naming schools after this bum? And of the ones they have, what are the graduation levels like?
