Obamas Poll Numbers Are Doing Great. Keep It Up President Obama.

A pair of polls released today show that the electorate continues to sour on Barack Obama and his agenda after the State of the Union address.  Quinnipiac’s survey of over 2600 registered voters produces a 45% approval rating with a 46% disapproval, the highest yet from Quinnipiac.  Trust in government has plunged as well:
American voters remain deeply divided about President Barack Obama’s job performance, giving him a 45 – 46 percent job approval, but disapproval of both Democrats and Republicans in Congress tops 2-1. This could explain why only 2 percent trust government to do what is right almost all of the time, and 16 percent trust government to do right most of the time, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
While President Obama’s ratings on the economy and job creation remain low, voters strongly support the steps he has proposed to put Americans back to work, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University survey finds.
American voters still disapprove 54 – 35 percent of Obama’s health care reform plan, but they say 52 – 44 percent they want Congress and the President to keep trying on health care reform rather than giving up and moving on to other matters.
But how exactly do people want Obama and the GOP to continue working on health-care reform?  Rasmussen’s survey of likely voters says a wide majority wants to shred the current ObamaCare proposals and start from scratch:
President Obama this week called for a televised bipartisan summit to get his health care reform plan back on track, but 61% of U.S. voters say Congress should scrap that plan and start all over again.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds just 28% who think it is better to build on the health care plan that has been working its way through the House and Senate.
Support for and opposition to the existing plan remain at the same levels they’ve been at since just after Thanksgiving.
The Rasmussen numbers on ObamaCare look about the same as Quinnipiac, 58-39 opposed.  Majorities in every age and income demographic support starting over from scratch, as well as 66% of independents.  Democrats support building on current proposals, but only by a 53/35 majority.
The internals of Obama’s approval ratings look increasingly desperate.  Independents disapprove 40/49, as do middle class voters 41/51 ($50-100K) and 43/54 ($100K-250K).  He has now lost Catholics, 41/52, while Jewish voters split evenly 49/49 — which are two big red flags among- usually loyal Democratic groups, especially the latter.
Obama has now gotten two bad days of polling news, and one thing is clear: attempting to pose as bipartisan at the House Republican Caucus meeting and in the State of the Union speech did Obama no long-term good at all.  Voters still dislike Obama’s policies, and his demand for Republican cooperation hasn’t rallied anyone to his standard.  Republicans apparently managed to win the long-term argument from those appearances — which should give them confidence in standing their ground and continuing the debate.


  1. Nobamas Big Problem is HIS Agenda is NOT Citizens Agenda and there LIES His Biggest Hurdle. After a Year Of Saying One Thing and Then Doing Another It Has Caught UP to Him With Citizens! Excuses That That All that is Wrong is BUSHES Fault Has Also Worn Thin.

    He Does Seem to Be Pivoting a WEE Bit But with His Record and The Far Left Getting Really HOT over His Actions Hes in a BOX Where He PUT Himself!

    Voters Have Got His Attention and He Now KNOWS there AINT Know Coat Tails BUT More Importantly SO Do The Demoncrats WHO Will Have Alot of SPLAINING to DO Come November! All of a SUDDEN Bi-Partisan Ship is ON the Table at Least with Health Care! Conservatives SHOULD Insist on Starting That BAD Legislation Over From Square ONE and Less Than 2000 Pages! See Hes NOW Going to MAKE Decision On Terrorist Trials,Which is What Should Have been Happening From Day One!

  2. I see Hypocrats have given the big middle finger to bipartisanship. Republicans worked with Hypocrats on the "jobs bill", and now Reid has pulled the ol' bait and switch, replacing his bill with what was proposed.

    If this is what the Hypocrats mean by "bipartisanship", they are in for a rude awakening. Republicans have hopefully learned their lesson, one that they should have learned long ago, that Hypocrats cannot be trusted.

    Harry Reid, with that one maneuver, makes Obummer look even more like a chump. These Hypocrats are self-destructing, trying to be smug and clever, but they are revealing themselves to be the complete buffoons that we all knew them to be. ROFLMAO ... and meanwhile Gibbs is still trying to wash the "hope" and "change" ink off of his hand, LOL

  3. Tom Price gives it to Obummer. I love it. These Hypocrats made their bed and now they are loathe to sleep in it. What a debacle. Even FAILk can't comment on the Hypocrat's spectacular, epic, fail. In fact, if I didn't love calling them Hypocrats so much I would start calling them Failocrats. Maybe I will mix it up a little. teeheehee!

    Now Obama Discovers GOP Health Care Proposals?

  4. So what? If he gets us out of the wars his approval ratings will go back up. I have to say I'm not too happy with everything I've seen him do. I don't like his spying on Americans with Google and cell phones.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
