Obama Approval Rating Drops To Record Low

Tyler Durden's picture


It seems like it was an eternity ago that Obama was doing his post-government shutdown gloating media tour, when day after day the world was bombarded with news of the GOP's record low popularity rating, paradoxically following their attempt to do what even the president is now desperate to achieve: delay Obamacare. Well, the tables have turned and now that the government shutdown is history, at least until January, and the public focus has shifted to where it should have been in the first place - namely the embarrassing ponzi scheme experiment that is Obamacare, and the epic failure surrounding its rushed rollout - it is Obama's turn to suffer a record low rating, which is precisely what happened according to a just concluded WSJ/NBC News poll.

The WSJ reports that "the popular discontent that engulfed Republicans amid the partial government shutdown has now washed over President Barack Obama, whose job approval rating has sunk to an all-time low. Americans just weeks ago heaped scorn largely on congressional Republicans over the dysfunction in Washington. But the new poll found a sharp turn against Mr. Obama, during a month in which lawmakers tiptoed up to a potential debt default and the White House fumbled the rollout of its signature health-care law.


Mr. Obama's job approval fell to 42%, with 51% of respondents disapproving of his performance as president. That marked a drop in his approval rating from 47% in early October and 53% at the end of 2012.


At the same time, more Americans now view Mr. Obama negatively than positively, for the first time since he emerged as a national political candidate.


In all, the poll of 800 Americans captured an extraordinarily deep and widespread public distaste for the two political parties, those parties' leaders and the state of politics in the nation's capital.

Elsewhere, it appears that Americans just have given up on the government system, whose increasing corruption and cooption by moneyed interests is now obvious to everyone:

Optimism about the U.S. system of government, at 30%, was at the lowest ebb in 40 years. Just 29% said their congressional representative deserved re-election—a new low—while nearly three-quarters said Congress was contributing to the problems in Washington instead of working to solve them.


House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, both Republicans, hit their highest negative ratings, as did Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.


"Americans are voicing their frustration at a Congress that cannot keep the government open for business and an administration that cannot get health care open for enrollment," Mr. Hart said.


Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducts the survey along with Democrat Fred Yang, described the findings as a "shock wave" that showed the depth of "anger and frustration with everybody in Washington."

Frustration... and yet nobody will dare to change anything for fear of losing their precious entitlements, which are unsustainable as is and like in Detroit will end up with pennies on the dollar, or for fear of infringing on their Dancing with the Stars TV time.

My dad always said he was too busy working for a living to make any money. Most of us just want to focus on the things we are good at that make us feel better about ourselves. I wonder how it feels to be a politician, who's only skill is playing on people's fears and weaknesses. I'm sure its empowering but how can you have any meaningful relationships if everyone is a muppet, including spouse and children? This is why so few will ever serve in positions of power that can do good for anyone but themselves. They are the shepherd and we are the sheep and ultimately it is still about the meat and wool.

There is no way back or out of the coming disaster that Obama and his sycophant friends, especially in media, are driving us toward. Everyone, from corporations to the poorest of poor are trying to game this mess and figure out a strategy of survival if not profit, and be it BTFD to gold bugs, most here are doing the same regardless of if it accelerates us towards our ultimate demise.

"Americans are voicing their frustration at a Congress that cannot keep the government open for business and an administration that cannot get health care open for enrollment," Mr. Hart said.

Mr Hart, you are either a fool or just another statist tool. 

The majority of Americans have consistently said, (and now more than ever) that they don't want .gov healthcare at all.  Having it "open for enrollment" is the last thing that is wanted.  And Americans are increasingly, though much too slowly imo, realizing that .gov is the problem and having it shut down is a better alternative to having it "open for business"; it is obvious that the "buisiness" of this government is to take away the peoples rights and enslave them to a rulling corpro-politico elite.

I waa going to add a hearty "Fuck you, Mr. Hart." but decided against it.

How can 42% still like this dummy?

I call Obama, and people like Blair 'marketing Presidents/Prime Ministers' because that's basially what they're all about, marketing (hair, skin colour, general looks, tell everyone what they want to hear, crappy and banal election slogans etc).

Of course the people lap it up, but then when they get into office they're FOUND OUT.

Why the rest of the world pays to hear people like Blair speak I don't know because he sure as hell doesn't show his face that much in the UK -  he knows that the UK now knows his game which is/was complete bollocks....

And it pains me to realise just how much Obama is going to make when he goes on the lecutre/speech tour. Again, how can people be so stupid and want to hear another word from this clusterfuck?

Listen to Obama's rap (pun intended) and you'll hear two very common themes threaded throughout: "it's not your fault, precious" and "the other guys are worse". Compare and contrast these with Repugnicant or Libertardian rhetoric and you'll see why he's still popular with people that have no idea how the economy functions (or doesn't, as the case may be). Would you rather listen to somebody tell you "you coulda been a contender" or "you're poor because you didn't try hard enough like my daddy's daddy's daddy"?

It pains me to realize that people waste energy getting mad at the puppets while the string-pullers get off scott-free and actually make a handsome penny off of your angst. From where I sit, that's like getting mad at the nice lady in the toothpaste commercial for smiling.

Is that the skill that most qualified him to be President? Or is it his eager willingness to CHANGE the United States into a coast-to-coast version of Chicago that most qualified him to be President? [Not that I'm picking on Chicago, mind you.]

True--but at least 42% of the rest would approve the job Boehner and the Republicans are doing  -there are just as many zombified dumbass Republicans as there are Democrats  -even the Tea party has a majority of morons who think someone like Sarah Palin is the answer. Ron paul was (and remains) right. The Fed will lead us to detruction and servitude. That is the Master plan. our Country is soooo F*cked.

From yesterday's bread and circuses, Succubelius caught bold face lying claiming the law prevents her from signing up for an Obamacare plan. That right there should tell you everything if she won't sign up for one. You'd think she would have been pre-signed up.

The website right here shows she is lying.

Just remember the analogy if a chef won't eat food he cooks at a restaurant but pimps it to everyone else like it is greatest thing since sliced bread. You probably don't want to eat there either.

I have worked with various entity structures over my career. The ONE true maxim I can create is REFORM always fails. Why? Firing the figure-head does nothing. It is the culture at the core that is wrong and it will not matter who you put in charge, the body beneath the head will still be in place and will NEVER change.


And that my friends is the problem

llusion of Democracy today.

People sponsored by the rich, make false promises to the masses to get elected. Distribute national wealth amongst themselves and their sponsors (Industrialists) and when that is not enough borrow money from rest of the world and continue the distribution process. The borrowed money has to be paid back by taxing the masses keeping in mind that tax rules are made such that the politicians and their sponsors pay minimum or no taxes.

End of political tenure, rinse and repeat till the whole system breaks down and the world wealth is cornered by a minuscule of the population.

The borrowed money will NEVER be paid back. That is the beauty of it. They never intended to pay back any of it. Not the principal, not the interest, none of it.

This was explained to me by a teacher in 1967. Governments don't die and can't go broke as long as they can print money. Therefore they can borrow and spend more money every year and never pay it back, just roll it over forever.

He explained this with a big smile as if it was the cleverest trick ever.

The politicians around the world are nothing more than auction items which can be sold to the highest bidder. They will do whatever they can for the lobbyist paying them the maximum amount of money or votes, be it the unions, the banksters, the richest corporations or individuals. They are in the power seat to extract maximum advantage for themselves in the small time frame they occupy the seat of power.

The rest of the population is least of their concerns. The only activity they do is pacify the majority of the population using false statistics and promises of a better future so that they do not lynch them and their masters while they are robbing the taxpayers.

Obama told the truth -- you can keep your policy.  He just forgot to mention that if there is any material change -- such as the size of the print on the policy -- you lose your policy.  It is called a lawyer's answer.  His underlings wrote the regulations. 

Why should anyone read the legislation before they vote on it?  Say the word Congress.  Why should anyone consider the effect of the regulations?  Say the phrase your leaders. 

Golf anyone?  Have a nice day.

The last chart shows the Tea Party is the only group that is confident that their position is correct. They stand on principle that can be defended.

Everybody else is looking for cover. They have abandoned all principle and stand for nothing.

That's more than the percentage of all voting age people that voted for him.  Makes no sense whatsoever. 

56mill voted for, approx 200 mill voting age not otherwise prohibited (mentally deficient, incarcerated, felons etc) = 28%.

These numbers are more corrupt than the final polling results where 115% of the registered voters voted for Obama, 100%.  

More proof that the media is complicit.

I'm sorry, but how can 37 percent STILL believe BarryCare can work?

And how is it possible he has never dropped below 42% in any poll, no matter what he's done?  Are they polling the same idiots over and over, fudging the data, or what?  He ought to be at Congress' famous 11% by now. If nearly half the country STILL likes him after everything, I guess we're hosed.

He's an Affirmative Action POTUS, which means when you adjust the numbers to make up for his being half-black, raised by his grandma, and growing up in an unfair, white man's world, his approval rating is actually 75%.

Grading a black man on the same scale as everyone else be raycisssssssss.  Get it?
