Obama Approval Craters....

Sure, Republicans’ numbers are cratering worse.

But we’re used to being hated. Obama isn’t.

How does it feel, chump?

AP poll: Obama at 37% approval



by Ed Morrissey
October 9, 2013






Readers have to get halfway into the Associated Press report on its new AP-GFK poll to find this out, but Barack Obama’s job approval numbers have cratered in the shutdown. His overall job approval is now 37/53, and a majority want Obama to start cooperating more with Republicans, as 63% want Republicans to meet Obama part-way, too:


Americans are holding Republicans primarily responsible for the partial government shutdown as public esteem sinks for all players in the impasse, President Barack Obama among them, according to a new poll. It’s a struggle with no heroes. …

Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.

Indeed, anyone making headlines in the dispute has earned poor marks for his or her trouble, whether it’s Democrat Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, or Republican John Boehner, the House speaker, both with a favorability rating of 18 percent.​

The amusing headline in this instance is “GOP gets the blame in shutdown.” However, the data shows that plenty of blame is being heaped on all sides, by all sides:


— Sixty-eight percent said the shutdown is a major problem for the country, including majorities of Republicans (58 percent), Democrats (82 percent) and independents (57 percent).

— Fifty-two percent said Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with Republicans to end the shutdown; 63 percent say Republicans aren’t doing enough to cooperate with him.​

Only 30% approve of raising the debt ceiling, clean or otherwise. And despite the best (that is to say, most malicious) efforts of the National Parks Service, more than 80% have had no impact from the government shutdown. That’s not exactly the kind of momentum Obama and the Democrats hoped to generate for pressure on Republicans, and their “no negotiations” stand is practically designed to backfire, if this poll accurately reflects public temperament.

Shh...., The Lame Stream Media does want we lowly Americans to know this. According to AlterNet, Snopes, and KOS Obama's approval rating is still above 50%. Wouldn't Bernays and Goebbels be proud of their propaganda theories that continue in Progressive Journalism.

Don't use the AP/GFK outlier poll as evidence, because that allows others to use the Rasmussen poll which has Obama at 50% as evidence. If you use just one poll, you can probably find one to say anything you want. Better to use the RCP average to show how unpopular Obama is which has him at a -6% margin.

Hot Air certainly lives up to the name. Interesting how they took the lowest outlier number and ran with it like it is somehow news, speaking of propaganda.

Rasmussen has Obama's approval rating at 50%, Gallup at 44%, and The Economist has him at 48% today. Everyone gets different results, but it is interesting that you took only the lowest number and hold it as gospel whilst accusing other groups churning out propaganda.
