By Dave Andrusko By now it’s hardly news that the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll would find President Obama’s job approval number at 40%, the lowest ever in the series. (Gallup has him at 41% today and 39% a few days ago.) Over half—54%–disapprove of Mr. Obama. After all Mr. Obama’s approval numbers …Continue reading "Obama’s job approval numbers hit new low in NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll"
By Dave Andrusko Reading some recent polling data, the question could fairly be asked: Will President Obama’s approval ratings permanently sink into the 30s before at least 60% of the public no longer believes he is capable of leading the country? Yes, his numbers are that bad, and getting worse. Let’s start with a …Continue reading "Obama approval down to 41%, 54% no longer believe Obama can lead the country"
By Dave Andrusko Tomorrow we will post on what is (to my mind) the single most bizarre story ever written (seemingly) in defense of President Obama. It appeared earlier this week in POLITICO and is as long as it is convoluted. A real head-scratcher. Wednesday got away from me so I am picking up …Continue reading "Obama unable to reach 50% approval on any of 12 issues, questions about competency grow more urgent"
By Dave Andrusko When the headline for the lead story in today’s Washington Post reads, “Post-ABC News poll shows Democrats at risk in November as Obama’s approval rating falls,” you know the results of this survey of 1,000 adults must have been ominous. And that conclusion is certainly borne out by Dan Balz’s and …Continue reading "Obama popularity craters in new Post/ABC News poll"
By Dave Andrusko A healthy-size snowstorm was enough to put me hours behind yesterday, which means I did not get to three stories that I wanted to post about. Here’s one (and I hope time permits me to get to the other two). It’s always tricky to try to figure out when—or if—a President …Continue reading "A Very Bad Day at the office for President Obama on two Sunday talk shows"
By Dave Andrusko At least every other week, we have another poll, documenting that President Obama’s popularity has sunk to a new low. The difference today is that the Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll was released hours after pro-abortion Democrat Alex Sink sunk in a match up against pro-life Republican David Jolly in a …Continue reading "President Obama’s popularity sinks to new low in Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll"
By Dave Andrusko It’s now official. What we expected would come to pass has. A Fox News poll released Wednesday found that only 38% of the public approves of President Obama’s job performance with 54% disapproving. According to Fox News’ Dana Blanton, last month Mr. Obama’s approval rating was 42%, just two points above his …Continue reading "Obama approval numbers drop to record low in Fox News poll"
By Dave Andrusko President Barak Obama’s approval ratings continue to sink to the point where they are “under water” (under 50%) across the board. To note just a few recent examples: · In the CNN poll released Monday the disapproval/approval numbers were 52%-45% · Yesterday NBC/WSJ released its poll, showing 50% disapproval to 45% approval …Continue reading "President Obama takes a beating in opinion polls"
By Dave Andrusko Thanks so much to those many kind readers who responded to ”Understanding where we are at by looking at five sets of numbers.” This post is a follow up with the same goal: to look for the truth behind the spin that favors pro-abortion President Barack Obama. The overall point yesterday (at …Continue reading "A Deeper—and Even More Encouraging—Look at the Results of the Washington Post/ABC News poll"
By Dave Andrusko The same poll that shows majority support for an exception for employers who have religious or moral objections to the Obama mandate requiring virtually all employers to pay for services they regard as morally objectionable also recorded the lowest level support ever in a CBS News poll for President Obama. An anemic …Continue reading "New York Times/CBS News Poll Finds Obama Job Approval down to 41%"
By Dave Andrusko If you are pro-abortion President Barack Obama angling for a second term, you take comfort where you can, for example, in the notion that Republicans have not coalesced around a candidate and that, economically, things could get better. That’s before you read the results of two new polls. Last May, 53% said …Continue reading "In a first for Associated Press poll, Majority Says Obama Shouldn’t be Re-elected"
By Dave Andrusko These two quotes, from Gallup and Rasmussen Reports, paint a grim picture for pro-abortion President Barack Obama. “President Barack Obama’s 11th quarter in office was the worst of his administration, based on his quarterly average job approval ratings. His 41% approval average is down six percentage points from his 10th quarter in …Continue reading "Obama by the Numbers"
