    How clueless is John Berman? On the one hand, the CNN anchor trumpets the fact that Melania Trump is the first First Lady to leave the White House with a net-negative approval rating. On the other hand, his own sneering remarks are a perfect illustration of the kind of negative coverage that Melania has received during her years as First Lady which contributed to her negative ratings. During this morning's 6 am hour of New Day', Berman teased the upcoming report on Melania's ratings, saying: "Here's a pop quiz for you. Who's the only First Lady to leave the White...

    President Donald Trump's net disapproval rating has slumped by six points since the end of July, but has remained steady over the past month as the coronavirus has continued to spread across the U.S. According to the FiveThirtyEight presidential popularity tracker, 52.9 percent of Americans disapproved of Trump's record in office on average as of Wednesday, while 43.7 percent approved. But back in the end of July, the president's disapproval rating was almost three points higher as 55.8 percent of U.S. adults told pollsters they were unhappy with the commander-in-chief.

    The Federalist ^ | April 10, 2020 | Molly Hemmingway
    After failing to censor President Trump's press conferences, media are working on a new plan of pressuring him to remove himself from his press conferences. For years, the media complained that President Donald Trump wasnÂ’t holding enough press conferences. Now, as the mediaÂ’s poor performance in his daily coronavirus press conferences is on worldwide display, theyÂ’re begging him to leave his own press conferences, and leave them alone to craft their anti-Trump storylines. When March polls showed Trump receiving unusually high marks for his handling of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the media receiving their traditionally low marks for it, many...

    EurActiv ^ | 10 January 2014
    Belgium, Denmark, Germany and Luxembourg are the only EU countries where citizens approve the European Union’s leadership with a clear 50% majority, according to a recent poll by Gallup. Approval ratings in nearly all other member states have dropped dramatically since 2008, especially in the crisis-hit south. The approval of the EU leadership is lowest in Greece (19%), Cyprus (21%) and Spain (27%), according to Gallup poll released on Wednesday (8 January). Other countries with critically low approval ratings include the United Kingdom (29%), Sweden (30%) or the Czech Republic (30%). The EU is still backed by a majority of...

    Heading into a congressional election year, Americans hold Congress in strikingly low regard, and nearly two-thirds say they would like to see their House member replaced, a new poll finds. Even though Americans are feeling somewhat better about the economy—and their personal finances—elected officials in Washington aren’t benefiting from the improved mood, the Associated Press-GfK poll found. President Barack Obama’s approval rating was negative: 58 percent disapprove of the job he’s doing as president, while 42 percent approve. …

    President Barack Obama's approval ratings have fallen to a new low, with only 36 percent of Americans saying that they approve of the way he is handling his job overall, according to a new poll from the Economist/YouGov. A majority of Americans - 56 percent - disapprove of the president's performance. Even more concerning for the president may be the news that top Republican candidates have moved within striking distance in head-to-head matchups. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney trails Obama by just a 44 percent to 43 percent margin, while Texas governor Rick Perry trails 46 percent to 42 percent....
  • Gallup: Obama’s Approval Hits All-Time Low Among Men

    CNS News. com ^ | September 22, 2011 | Terence Jeffrey
    The percentage of American men saying they approve of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president hit an all-time low of 36 percent in the Gallup poll last week. That is down from a peak of 64 percent approval among men that Obama received in the seven-day period that ended on Jan. 25, 2009, the week he was inaugurated. After his first week in office, Obama’s approval among men as measured by the Gallup poll never again matched that 64-percent peak. Obama’s approval among men first dropped below 50 percent in the last week of August 2009....

    A new poll released Thursday morning shows President Obama's approval rating is dropping in Virginia -- a battleground state the Democrat took from Republicans en route to winning the White House in 2008. These new numbers show the president’s disapproval rating has spiked in Virginia to 54 percent. The Quinnipiac University Poll is based on telephone interviews with 1,368 registered voters between September 7-12. The results mirror other polls that show a continuing slide in the president’s popularity in a slow, troubled economy. Fifty-one percent of those surveyed say they do not think President Obama deserves to be re-elected. That’s...

    AP POLL SAMPLE SKEWS TO DEMOCRATS BY 17 POINTS Giddy Democrats and their sock puppets in the media have been crowing about Barack Obama’s post-bin Laden 60% approval rating ever since the results of last week’s AP poll were released. And there’s more good news from AP for the president, you say?On the economy, 52% approve of the way Obama is handling it, while only 47% disapprove? He’s up 54% – 46% on ObamaCare of all things? Seriously? The approval rating on his handling of Libya is 57%? You’re messing with us, right? And he’s only down 47% to 52%...

    The Politico ^ | March 29, 2011 | Andy Barr
    Bill O’Reilly said Monday night that Sarah Palin only has herself to blame for dropping approval ratings. The Fox News host who has butted heads recently with Palin said the former governor has avoided direct engagement with the media, hurting her image. “Her favorability among Republicans and independents has dropped four [percentage] points in a month,” O’Reilly said during a segment of his television show. “The reason I think it’s dropping is because she is not engaging directly.” O’Reilly then pointed directly to a recent interview he had conducted with Palin in which she accused him of interrupting her after...

    President Obama's average job-approval rating for his second year in office was 47 percent, down 11 points from the 58 percent he enjoyed in 2009, according to Gallup. But another way to illustrate that drop is to look at his approval rating by state, and Gallup's surveys show that Obama tumbled by 10 points or more in 31 states. His biggest drops were in Vermont (15.2 points), Arizona (14.5 points), Kentucky (14.2 points) Missouri (14.1 points) and Utah (14 points). Obama had carried Vermont in 2008 by more than 2-to-1 but lost to John McCain in the other four (although...

    A new Gallup poll released yesterday of President Barack Obama’s half-year approval ratings shows he garners the most support in Washington, D.C and Hawaii. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Obama’s approval sinks the lowest in Wyoming and Utah with a 56% gap between his highest rating (85%) and his lowest (29%). Overall, Obama averaged a 49% approval rating nationwide during the half-year time frame. He received at least a 50% approval in 15 states and the District of Columbia, in four states he had an approval rating of 60% or higher. Nine states put Obama’s approval below 40%...

    Is anybody in the White House listening? American Voters don't think so. The latest installment of the Rasmussen tracking poll reports that President Obama's approval index has sunk back down to its lowest level ever -21. Just nine days ago on March first that index was at -12. Only 22% of Americans strongly approve of the way Obama is handling the presidency 43% strongly disapprove and the numbers are only that positive because amongst the Democrats 42% of Democrats strongly approve (72% of Republicans strongly disapprove). The real danger for Obama is that independents are at a -28, 17% strongly...

    Here is the best evidence that America is losing confidence in Barack Obama, one of the Progressive Democrats "big guys" James Carville and his group Democracy Corps ran a poll and it showed that America is not happy with the POTUS and the Progressive Democrats running congress. The national mood continues to sour, with the share who see the country headed in the wrong direction moving up 4 points since mid-January, up to 62 percent, the highest mark in a year. The survey also shows concerns about the economy continuing to grow. And even though the Republican brand remains badly...

    Constitutional Guardian ^ | 2/7/2010 | Nancy Tengler
    I am sorry. I just have to ask. How can it be that President Obama's approval rating (this according to Rasmussen) can fluctuate so widely following the State of the Union? On January 23rd, prior to the speech, his Presidential Approval Rating hovered at a career low of -19; 24% strongly approving of his performance, 43% strongly disapproving. Overall, his approval was at 44%, overall disapproval at 55%. For my part the January 27th speech was exceedingly disappointing. No new ideas, no acknowledgement of past errors. Rather, the president appeared arrogant, defiant, petulant; in short, he looked like an unrepentant...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 23, 2010 | Ralph Alter
    Apparently it has never occurred to our political pollsters that Barack Hussein Obama is the Bradley Effect personified. While our floundering POTUS continues to garner approval numbers hovering in the 50% range, his policies are judged much more harshly by polled Americans. The Real Clear Politics average, for instance, reports B.O.'s job approval average at 49.4%. His hand-maidens in Congress however, receive only 24.5 % approval and of those asked about the direction in which our country is going, only 35.9 % believe we are headed down the right path. Just exactly who do they think is holding the steering...

    Democrats believe that Rasmussen, who is acknowledged as one of the more accurate political pollsters, is either inaccurate or the purposely biased. They whine that Rasmussen's polls constantly report numbers that are about 5% lower than other polls,which is generally true because Rasmussen measures likely voters, other pollsters measure all adults. Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency. The pointed attacks reflect a hardening conventional wisdom among prominent liberal bloggers and many Democrats that...
