Obama's Current Approval Rating Is The Ugliest Since Nixon


quote:

President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.


quote:

Obama's approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50% — with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.

His approval rating is low because he is a terrible POTUS and people are suffering because of it.


Pretty easy to understand.

Obama's approval rating is getting down to just his base number of core supporters, i.e., people who would vote for a Democrat for president under almost any circumstances. Not good for the prez. Oooh, do I wish the midterm elections were closer.

What has he done to get support from 42% other than being a democrat and black?

It has to mostly be core supporters that have fully bought into his lunacy.

As much as I disagree, the budget battle seems to have been conceded to keep Obamacare in the forefront. If the employee mandate hits before Nov. of next year, this will be more of a clusterf**k than it is already. When employers start dropping employees by the thousands, people are going to lose their mind.

This is a most unsettling question. How can 4 out of 10 people approve of what's been going on in the Oval Office?

Obama's AR will never fall to 29%, though. There are groups who are emotionally invested in Obama to a degree that neither Nixon or Bush 43 ever experienced.

I would guess that Obama's low-water mark would be about 35%. The msm will never turn on him like they turned on Nixon or Bush, either.

Nearly?



Romney was right after all. 43% have made up their mind and a republican can't win them over.

I can't believe we live amongst 43% of stupid people. Despite what you think of the man or the office itself, who in their right mind would think he is doing a good job with a trainwreck for a country?

43 out of a 100 approve of this douche...really?

We could have done better if Congress and the President just stayed home for the last 5 years.
