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."

      nothing good will come of us.
      Do you know Corparate Taxes paid this year are down 57% and taxes from us are down 24% so where is this money going to come from.
      Is he going to raise all our taxes or cut food stamps and benifits?

      2) you make the implied case that it isn't suprising that people are giving what you consider "dumb" answers to pollsters, since they elected Bush twice. Ever consider that it's ALSO the same country that elected Obama last November? They're not bright when they disagree with you, but evidently clever when they DO agree with you?

    • I'm not arguing for Obama. I'm arguing against your poll numbers. You do this every time, Stan. You say I'm doing something I'm not. I said your polls are useless. I said nothing about Obama being great. Nor did I say anything about me supporting Obama. I merely said you're upset because he hasn't fixed your mess.

      I never said, "dumb," so I don't know why you're incorrectly attributing that quote to me.

      "We put Obama into office and you're crying because he hasn't fixed your mistake yet."

      "We"? Sure sounded like a defense of Obama and an attack on Bush as well in numerous posts of yours.

    The latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll finds that only 28 percent of Americans approve of the job Bush is doing, a new low. He was at 30 percent last month. The pollsters said one big reason is deepening voter dissatisfaction with the economy, which is in a serious downturn.

You can claim that means nothing, but that would be expected, wouldn't it? As an Obama supporter you're happy to pretend that Obama being below 10 of the last 12 president means nothing, but it isn't a pursuasive argument.
