President "I Will Not Rest" Obama's Approval Rating Hits Record Low

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Nearly 80% of Americans have lost faith in the American political system, according to a new Wall Street Journal poll. Despite record highs in stocks (and consumer confidence?) - and a President proclaiming that as victory - 60% of Americans are dissatisfied with the economy and 70% believe the nation is heading in the wrong direction. Who is to blame for this? President Obama's overall approval rating has collapsed to a new low at 40%, with only 42% approving of his handling of the economy. "Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world," and 57% are pissed off enough to carry a protest sign. But don't worry, as President Obama has reiterated during his tenure, he "will not rest..."

 

What Republicans would protest...

 

What Democrats would protest....

 

What President Obama will do...

 

On the bright side, Obama is 10x more popular (among Americans) than Putin...

A small segment of people I thought were imbeciles 30 years ago, I now just consider average Amerikans.

No immigration into the US from 1924 thru 1964- then the "Great Society" began that allowed the critical mass of idiots on the dole.

All he has to do to get back above 50% approval is hand out MOAR FREE SHIT!!  Why else would anyone think this asshat is doing anything remotely close to a good job, unless you are getting some freebies from him?  Its the FSA that keeps him from sinking to near 0%, he'd more likely be closer to tracking the 10 year treasury at 2.5%.

I don't buy the 40%.  Even with the public as stupid as they are, and that's quite stupid, I still think the 40% figure is 'adjusted' to account for items such as extremely cold weather, western drought, illegal aliens who will eventually cross the border, or perhaps even the ebola virus.

You do have to massage the numbers a bit to get a more accurate read on the situation.  I see it like this: 35% of the population is going to "approve" of him even if he were caught fondling small children and drowning puppies on a regular basis and 35% would "disapprove" even if he pooped gold bricks, cured cancer, and miraculously healed all blind people.  Truncating the sample, you get a 16.7% (5/30) approval rating.

I HIGHLY doubt obama is 10x more popular to Americans than Putin is at this point.  Not when getting a colonoscopy is 10x more popular than obama is. 

obama is only 10x more popular than Putin when you pole elitist, globalist, sociopath, bankster, and politi-scum. 

That's the demographic Putin is pissing off these days.

This is starting to sound a lot like a flip of the coin to "it's all Bush's fault". I think just as striking, though not the headline of this article, is the abysmal 14% congress approval rating.

The whole system needs to be cleaned out, remove all of the folks in and around politics today and replace them with fresh blood. No one cares about elections anymore because they know the problems go deeper than one or two politicians.

Nice. The inference is so you can shoot them? Bravo. This is the real problem with our country, the disunity. Trust me, you have more in common with an American democrat than you do with anyone else in the world, we should all remember that. The only people that benefit from disunity are the people already in power, bigger chips to play in the same game. You're better off having a drink with a Dem and figure out how to solve this than pining for a day of false reconing.

I feel an urge to remind you of Plato, the old Greek.

He basically said, anyone who actually craves power is self evidently unsuitable for the job.

So leaders must be recruited in a complusory way from the ranks of scholarship etc., and have a short tenure.

The above mentioned cravers will do everthing in their power to overthrow such a system, and so they will , with regret, have to be ,  how you say?  eliminated.

...So leaders must be recruited in a complusory way from the ranks of scholarship etc., and have a short tenure....

So the sociopaths will just go the academic route, which is exactly what they do now? I don't think that's helping.

So I'll adjust it in a way that works, because Plato was a "leader" and therefor, a self-indicted sociopath...not to mention pedophile. Anyway. He got his and right so.

Corrected:
So leaders must be recruited in a complusory and random way from the ranks of tax paying registered voters of natural birth etc., and have a 2 yr tenure. The gig shall be part time, 6 months out of the year with 6 months present in home district required. Salary will be set by state legislators.

Really. Even the most strident supporters would admit he should and could have left a force behind to keep and enforce the peace in Iraq. He chose not to. In fact he could not go there because for him it was always about the politics of the Iraq war and never the ending result. The same is going on in Afghanistan a war he further intensified. Look at the result now in Iraq. ISIS is now taking over major portions of Syria, Iraq, and are now on there way to Lebanon. We will disagree I know and quite frankly that's ok with me.

That's just rasist. How can we get away picking on the Tranny in Chief who is destroying the United States of America? Thank goodness the FBI Is going to rate future news stories. 

The American terrorist cells have to be isolated to complete the transformation

"Nearly 80% of Americans have lost faith in the American political system"

Pffft. Americans in 1775 "lost faith" in their political system.

Americans in 2014 have just become distracted by the September 9th Apple iPhone launch and/or the new Fall TV lineup announcements.

obomber will not be impeached. He will be arrested, tried and prosecuted as a traitor. Along with the rest of the lawless FEDGOV. Debauching the currency is a crime. The FEDGOV have gone far beyond the debauch stage, they have willfully and intentionally DESTROYED the currency along with the lives and futures of all law abiding American citizens. Add to that a loooooong list of other felonious high crimes and the case for immediate arrest is a no-brainer. All of them go to jail, their assets seized, family's expelled from the US.

There is simply not enough desire for that just yet. Has anyone arrested Jon Corzine, Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, etc. and none of these people even show the least bit of remorse or shame? Should I go on? It's not going to happen until the entire system collapses and we are not even close to that just yet.

Yeah I hear you man but someone HAS to say it out loud in conversation. If the MSM was hammering for arrest things would be different. Because they are not, I am. Who knows, it might eventually develop some momentum.

Zerohedge seems more and more biased these days.  Headline: Obama extremely unpopular.  What will Obama do?  Obama taking too many vacations.  What is democrats plan?  Yet your own infographic shows republicans in Congress are even less popular, but not a word about Republican issues or Republican problems.  I know your answer "We don't support Republicans or Democrats, because they are the same.  I don't participate in politics because everyone is the same."  That will never bring about change.

Depends on your definition of 'participate' to paraphrase a former impeached, disbarred, NEARLY imprisoned, fined, disgraced, abuser of power, william feffferson clinton. 

To our great misfortune, nothing the voter who participates--- peacefully, in this sham of a democratic republic----can do will bring about positive change for the 99%.

Nothing.

The only things that will bring about change, are incapable of being accomplished.  

Since the threat of hanging the politicians---- who have brought about or been co-conspirators with---the corruption of all our institutions, the gradual destruction of the middle classes who bear ALL the burden of taxation, the export of jobs to foreign countries, their unwillingness to stop illegal immigration,  the entire panoply of grievances, all legitimate but futile complaints we have made, since they are no longer worried about being assassinated either individually or en masse, our greatest power has been rendered impotent. 

There's no bias reflected in such things as knowing and accusing them of it, that Al Queda is bent on the 100% destruction of all western institutions for the greater glory of a mythical prophet and some 15yr old virgins, or that there have only been Jews at the head of every important financial institution in the world including our FED, for going on 40 yrs.  That's a fact jack.

Obama's true rating is significantly lower. Liberal/Progressive/Democrats are as disgusted with this pathetic twerp as the rest of us but are unable to admit it as their own racism has them in a box of their own making. 

Having argued that Obama is opposed only because of the color of his skin, they can't admit his incompetance without confronting their own enormous bigotry.

I'm inclined to think you're right but so far there is not a whole lot of evidence supporting that assertion. People on the left are deathly afraid of the race card being played on them because most are simply too shallow in their own beliefs or convictions.

I worry more about what's gong on overseas at this moment and the President's actions. ISL is the best funded Islamic Army since Saladin. It is funded by Qatar's young, new and virulently extreme Emir. Saudi Arabia, more covertly continues funding as well. 

ISIL has now vast armaments donated by President Obama's non-action to destroy a massive American weapons facility in Mosul where State Department personnel, while there, reported that ISIL was coming and perhaps two days away. The president did "Nothing" allowing BILLIONS  of dollars of advanced armament and munitions to fall into ISIL's Hands. 

ISIL, once well provisioned, has take ownership of massive oil revenue as well. Abu Bakr al Baghdadi head of ISIL has begun annihilating our one real ally in the area, the Kurds. Our President Obama watches and does not give the air power HE PROMISED.  Christians are being killed raped and plundered from lands occupied since Christ!! WHERE IS OUR PRESS?  

Baghdadi's long range plans are clear and he has stated them in detail. he plans to create a new "State of Levant." In historical terms that area today includes: Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and other parts of the Middle East. He has also said many times he will kill the great Satan. His last comments before going from GITMO was "I'll See You In NY,NY!

The Emir of Qatar blatantly supports this while housing Mullah Omar the head of the Taliban (Omar Was responsible for more American deaths than any other in this Middle East battle). Mullah Omar resides now in the Qatar capital. Omar still heads the Taliban that just killed an American general. Omar has bragged that he will rule Afghanistan in less than 6 months after Americas fleeing With their tail between their legs. Omar is currently also leading the Guerrillas in Pakistan a Nuclear armed nation! WHERE IS OUR PRESS?

President Obama handed Omar his general staff back from GITMO to prepare for that eventuality. 

President Obama continues to sell deadly weapons to Qatar. reportedly the latest was combat attack helicopters! IS he really doing that? Where are our TV or newspaper coverage of this???

 Abu Bakr al Baghdadi has made it clear that he will attack America, the great Satan and he's already taking steps. WE NEVER HEAR OF THIS IN ANY DEPTH!!

Could it be our wide open southern border? Border guards, threatened with dismissal and jail if they speak have leaked! On Lou Dobbs show some reports of Arabs coming through have been rumored! WHERE IS OUR PRESS?

Where is the Press?! Our country is under the greatest threat since Japan & Germany invaded!  9/11 was a small wake up call! This Baghdadi has a country and wealth with a fast growing military ARMY!! Why was NSA invented? Not to look at us! Why hasn't President OBAMA used the air power he promised?

Why does he seem so friendly with the source of funds to this ISLAMIC ARMY?      WHY ISN'T THERE DETAIL IN THE PRESS?

WHERE IN HELL IS THE PRESS? Are they frightened children? Our just graduates from Columbia School of Liberal journalism?

The banking mafia are destroying the American economy. First they ofshored all the jobs that could be offshored and now they are driving down the wages of the jobs that need to be based in the US. In the beginning increasing the supply of labor like this to drive down wages made the oligarchs of the banking mafia richer without obviously crashing the economy but over time as the middle class is gradually wiped out and the mass of the population get poorer the oligarchs **kill domestic demand.** Eventually no one has any money to spend except the banking mafia.

 

(This is in addition to  their suppressing domestic demand through the effect of money-lending for consumption and debt.)
