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?
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.
