Safe Mode: On
Obama poll numbers continue to fall.

Some of the highlights from recent polls;

"Due largely to the low marks he received for his handling of the economy and health care, and his drop in support among independents, a new Quinnipiac survey finds President Obama's approval rating down to 50% --- his lowest since becoming president (July 27- Aug. 3, 2409 RV, MoE +/-2%).
At the beginning of July, Obama's approval rating was 57% with a 33% disapproval rating. His approval not only dropped 7 points, but his disapproval rating increased 9 points."


"A rather surprising finding from the newly released CNN poll. Question three on the national survey of 1,136 adults (which includes an oversample of African-Americans) asks, "Do you consider the first six months of the Obama administration to be a success or a failure?"

Thirty-seven percent (37%) said they believe the Obama administration is a "failure," while 51% consider it a "success" and 11% say it's still "too soon to tell."

An identical question was asked of the Bush administration in an August 2001 CNN/Gallup/USA Today survey. At the time, 56% said the Bush administration was a "success" while only 32% considered it a "failure.""


"Eighty percent (80%) of investors say Obama's policies have driven up the deficit, a view shared by just 57% of non-investors.

Not surprisingly, 88% of Republicans blame the president's policies, compared to 52% of Democrats. But 79% of voters not affiliated with either party agree. "


"The poll found that voters disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy by 49 percent to 45 percent. On his effort to overhaul of the health-care system, 52 percent disapprove of his handling of the issue while 39 percent approve."


"Obama, asked about the incident during a July 22 news conference, said police "acted stupidly" in making the arrest. In the poll, voters by 49 percent to 33 percent said Obama acted "stupidly" when he waded into the matter."
