Skip to comments.GALLUP: ONLY 39 PERCENT HAVE POSITIVE VIEW OF AMERICA
Posted on 01/22/2013 1:34:34 PM PST by SMGFan
When people say that Barack Obama is the worst president since Jimmy Carter, theyre not kidding; a new Gallup Poll taken between January 7-10 shows that when Americans were asked whether they had a positive view of the country, only 39% agreed.
This is the lowest percentage since August 1979, when Carter was president, inflation was out of control and the economy was hurtling toward the abyss. The percentage of those who believe that things will be better in five years is only 48%, the lowest since that same time period under Carter.
Another 40% said things will be worse. When they were asked whether the United States stood five years ago, 55% said things were better, indicating their belief that the more they have seen of Barack Obama, the worse they have felt. But even that figure is revealing in other ways; the 55% number is the most negative number since 1991. In contrast, at the beginning of George W. Bushs first term, in January 2001, a whopping 73% of those polled were positive about America.

America made a mistake on Nov. 7th. Now, we ALL pay for it.
Guess there are liberals/ progressive who do not view America positively because she has not changed enough, yet.
Carter was a prince compared to this Jackass Muslim.
Exactly. They keep electing him and America is tilting Left fast and hard.
I’m tiring of general poll questions being used to make a point. People might have a negative view of America because it isn’t Socialist enough.
America is done. It’s on the edge of the toilet bowl, ready to fall in, and take it’s rightful place.
America is a nation of takers, and corruption. A place where group status matters more than anything. A place where competence and success is hated. A place where reality stars are valued more than real leaders. A place where not following the communist line will cause a public shunning of the offender.
I hate what this country has become.
So how did he “win” then. s/
Do not know if you saw it or not, but this guy’s administration just appointed a “Muzzie” to be the Safety Director for AMTRAK; the nation’s railroad passenger carrier. What a selection!! I cannot believe the people of this country and what they are thinking; or not thinking. You hit the nail on the head.
I never thought I'd live to see a worse president.
Precisely, but if so many people have a negative view of America and Hussein 0bama, it further sparks suspicion that the election was stolen.
Cahtah, as bad as he was, wasn’t a rigid, committed Marxist ideologue!
America B. O. or America A. O.?
Thats right poll a 100 people, selected people, and say thats what all americans believe..
DUuuuuuugh!... Any that believes this Bull Squirt needs to be eye poked..
It also speaks to how lame the last two GOP nominees have been.
The mistake was made long before Nov 7th, it happened at the GOP primary.
Nor was Jimmeh a jihadist sympathizer.
Or was he....???
He certainly had no love for Israel...
Then how, or why, did the Kenyan socialist win? Ballot box stuffing?
I'm sure there were shennanigans, but Romney was an unacceptable candidate. I voted for George Washington and kept my dignity. The guy was more liberal than Bill Clinton !!
America the modern reality? Not so much.
“America is done. Its on the edge of the toilet bowl, ready to fall in, and take its rightful place.”
I agree, yet the Marxist media keeps showing his mug on TV and
and proclaiming him to be the most popular in history, as if he were the second coming of the messiah.
I am sick at the sight of him and instantly cut the TV whenever he pops up on the screen or on my computer.
I am so thankful not to be in Obozoland.
“Cahtah, as bad as he was, wasnt a rigid, committed Marxist ideologue!”
You are right. Jimmah was just a simple peanut brain.
Sounds like a bunch of underemployed Liberal Arts Majors /Obama voters answered their phones to respond to this survey.
In a speech laden with the usual Marxist-Leninist "wooden language", spurting out pro-socialist and Communist Party rhetoric, Ceauşescu delivered a litany of the achievements of the "socialist revolution" and Romanian "multi-laterally developed socialist society". He blamed the Timişoara uprising on "fascist agitators."
However, Ceauşescu was out of touch with his people and completely misread the crowd's mood. The people remained unresponsive, and only the front rows supported Ceauşescu with cheers and applause. Eight minutes into the speech, some in the crowd actually began to jeer, boo, whistle and utter insults at hima reaction considered unthinkable for most of Ceauşescu's rule. Workers from a Bucharest power plant started chanting "Ti-mi-şoa-ra! Ti-mi-şoa-ra!"a chant that was soon picked up by others in the crowd. In response, Ceauşescu raised his right hand in hopes of silencing the crowd; his stunned expression remains one of the defining moments of the end of Communism in Eastern Europe. He then tried to placate the crowd by offering to raise workers' salaries by 100 lei per month (about 9 US dollars at the time, yet a 510% raise for a modest salary) and student scholarships from 100 to 110 lei while continuing to praise the achievements of the Socialist Revolution. However, a revolution was brewing right in front of his eyes."
That’s correct, under the present Administration, what the public thinks means absolutely nothing. This is particularly true among the Democratic Party mainstream news media, which is breathless from telling us how wonderful Obama is.
Let me qualify my own statement by saying... I have a positive view of most of America’s history, but I certainly am not happy with the history of the last 20 years or so. The last 4 years have been absolutely terrible.
