Skip to comments.WaPo: Obama polling is worse than its topline looks
Posted on 12/05/2013 8:51:59 AM PST by mandaladon
Over the last couple of weeks, weve looked at the various polls on Barack Obamas performance and noted the dramatic decline in approval on both policy areas and personal qualities. Today, the Washington Posts Aaron Blake and Sean Sullivan take a look at the former, and inform readers that Obama is in much bigger trouble than just dropping below 40% overall approval:
Recent polling from the Pew Research Center and Quinnipiac University has shown Obamas approval rating on almost all major issues plunging into the 30s below even his lowest-ever overall approval rating, which has stood around 40 percent in recent polls.
One might expect Obamas issue approval rating to be lagging on the economy, for example. And it is.
But even with an issue on which which the president appears to fall in line with a majority of Americans, hes struggling.
The Pew poll showed Obamas approval rating on immigration, for instance, was at 32 percent, with 60 percent disapproving, and Quinnipiac showed just 35 percent approving of Obama on that issue. The two wonder why Obamas job approval rating remains a little above his ratings on these critical issues. One of their theories is that his likeability may still be softening the blow, or that the collapse of his leadership approval numbers means that people believe he simply cant deliver. Id lean a little more toward the former, although we havent seen a poll on likeability in a while.

Independents are solidly behind ditching Obamycare
The American people now know 0bama is a liar; his credibility is shot forever. Time to hang 0bama around the necks of democrat candidates like a burning tire. A familiar concept in the 0bama family, I am told.
And at least half the Democrat True Believers are PO-ed that it’s not Single Payer. Boat is sinking.
With his approval in immigration at 32% then why pass any amnesty( anything Dems can accept on immigration?) ?
Media should ask Dems:"Wouldnt amnesty just INCREASE the WAGE GAP in this country?"
I guess his re-election hopes are dashed; he’ll have to find ... another way.
He’s a miserable excuse for a president.
Time to take control of the Senate and stop the madness
More likely to continue the madness. What do Republicans really stand for other than epic caving? Does anyone know?
Plan B. Time for a little chaos and mayhem maybe?
Sorry folks. There will be no more polls. Barack Obama
Media STILL promotes the LIE that Obama is “likible”, has “charm and charisma”, when in reality he is totally lacking in all of these areas.
He is repulsive, arrogant, snotty, belittling, aloof, distant, superior - I could go on for pages.........he is, in essence, the total opposite of all the media lies about him. The media’s trying to maintain these “positives” when he has lost all credibility is their last straw, their last attempt to redeem their savior who has not only let them down, but showed that he is just as against them (his greatest admirers) as he is all things conservative.
God is answering our prayers, and the truth is coming to light.
What has been revealed so far is but the “tip of the iceburg”.........
Obama's got the blacks (14%) and recent illegals 6%) That means among all other Americans 90% disapprove.
Go on and take a long nap until after the next election. What we don’t need are cynical cry babies.
Observing facts is not being cynical. The GOP is what it is.
Romney won the independents.
If facts are what you rely on, remember that a real fact is a fact no matter what your bias may be.
Listened to some numbnuts on a morning radio show that has wide listenership (18-24 demo) in our megablue city this morning. Two males and one female DJ trio said first about Kanye West’s remark about wanting to be “the Obama of clothing” - “Kanye is what now? The Black Liberace?” And then they replayed the West remark but as if the trio was asking him the questions. The female DJ says:” What? Obama? You want to over-promise and under-deliver, like Obama? You want to be a LIAR, like Obama? Have a fat wife without a job, like Obama?” Oh, how the bloom is off that rose.
“Obama’s got the blacks (14%) and recent illegals 6%) That means among all other Americans 90% disapprove.”
In New England there are millions of white Obamabots. Usually these brain-addled losers fit into the following categories:
5. Affiliated with any of about 100 universities/colleges that dot the landscape.
All are also lost causes. The Marxist has them and always will.
You left out Bill Ayers liberals. That is about 15-20%. You could put a gun to their head and you would have to shoot because they will not wise up.
