59% of Americans Disapprove of Obama


Don’t think Two Ferns can fix this.

Negative views of President Obama have hit a new high, according to a poll.

The AP-GfK poll shows 59 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama — a point higher than the previous high set in December.

Obama’s approval rating stands at 41 percent. That’s the second-lowest figure the poll has ever found.

What’s interesting about the AP poll history is not just how the negative numbers grow, but how the positive numbers trickle from Strongly Approve to Somewhat Approve to Lean Approve.

During the election, 30 percent strongly approved of Obama. Now only 14 percent do. Lean approve went from 5 percent to 16 percent. This indicates a shift among  Democratic voters who are no longer all that enthusiastic about Obama.

Preference for having the Republicans win control of Congress has risen from 32 percent in January to 37 percent now, narrowly beating out the Democratic Party, an important warning that Obama’s ruin is not the same as the GOP’s favor.

    My biggest worry is the 41% who still approve of this Marxist clown.

    There was only one silver lining to Obama’s reelection as president. Four years was not enough to clearly demonstrate his incompetence and inexperience. Eight years of Obama should convince 100% of Americans about the folly of voting for politically correct candidates.

    It is competency that counts – not skin color or gender.

      There is a core constituency for the Left made up of blacks, gays, government workers, general parasites, leftists and single women who couldn’t tell you the name of the nation’s capitol. They stick with him for the handouts, or because they’re racist, rigid ideologues, lazy, or stupid.

      It is very disturbing that he can do no wrong for so many of these selfish dummies.

      So then you are bigoted toward competency. Not everyone has had a good education through no fault of their own. Ageism, sexism, etc., yours is competencism. Bigotted in a different direction but a bigot nonetheless.

        A person cannot be “bigoted” toward a learned skill.

        Yes, when you go into surgery I am sure you won’t care if the doctor is competent or not. After all, it is not his or her fault.

        What to they teach in schools – that name-calling is the only thought process one needs?

    The lower his numbers go, the more his narcissistic rage will drive him to punish those who won’t accept his agenda and worship him. We are in for a rough ride.

    How big is the growing disapproval by those losing enthusiasm for Obama because he doesn’t seem leftist enough? There can be two groups of “disapproval” from different sides. I’ve seen some grumbling from the far left.

      it’s an interesting question

    Not to worry. Team Obama will just steal some more elections. This guy is fit to scrub toilets.

    I think 59% is understated, I have a hard time believing 41% of Americans are stupid and ignorant!

      The fact that Obama was reelected ought to be proof enough that a sizable portion of our society is dumber than a box of rocks. That or we now have proof zombies exist.
