Obama Hits Lowest Approval Mark
NationalJournal.com ^ | February 8, 2010 12:58 PM | NationalJournal.com

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.

But, but, but, he was the Answer. The Hope. The Change. Da Man. What went wrong? Oh, my, my, my. From top dog to outhouse in one short year. Sad thing is we still have to put up with the loser for another 2 plus years.

Keep fighting!

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!

His ratings are only going to get worse.

He can't change his policies, he will only change the rhetoric.

By 2012, his ratings will be so low they won’t be worth flushing. Mark my words.

So 44% are still hugging their Obama collector plates? Slow to wake up, are they?

" ...while almost half of voters say he has failed to meet their expectations."

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.

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?

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!

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.
