New polls show support for ‘selfie’ shooting POTUS as low as 38 percent
December 11, 2013
While the president laughed his way through the Nelson Mandela funeral, shaking hands with dictators, taking ‘selfies’, and flirting with the leader of Denmark, he also managed to hit new all time low approval ratings at home.
As MSNBC was forced to admit in the clip below, a brace of polls show that Obama’s approval level continues to sink at a rapid rate, mostly due to the disaster that seemingly has no end – Obamacare.
A Quinnipiac University poll shows that a massive 57 percent of Americans now disapprove of the President, with just 38 percent saying they approve of the job Obama is doing – a new record low for the Narcissist in chief.
A similar poll produced by NBC and the Wall Street Journal also found that 54 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama, while only 43 percent of voters approve of the President – still record highs when discounting the Quinnipiac poll.
Meanwhile, according to the figures, only 28 percent rate the president highly when it comes to achieving what he set out to do. That figure is down 16 points from January. The survey also found that just 37 percent believe Obama is honest and straightforward, down 5 points from June, while 44 percent say he is effective in handling a crisis, down another 5 points since June.
“These are tough and sobering numbers for the president and his administration,” said Democratic pollster Fred Yang, one of the principal conductors of the survey.
“A rousing chorus of Bah! Humbug! for President Barack Obama as American voters head into the holidays with little charitable to say about the president,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
The Quinnipiac poll also found that 50 percent now believe Obamacare to be a “bad idea”, with only 34 percent saying it is a “good idea”.
A majority of Americans, 52 – 44 percent, say Obama is not honest and trustworthy, while 51 – 47 percent of voters say the president is not a strong leader.
The poll also found that Obama is dragging down the Democratic party, with a majority of Americans saying they’d like to see Republicans take full control of Congress in the 2014 Midterm elections.
That is startling, given that American voters currently disapprove 74 – 19 percent of the way Republicans in Congress are performing.
“President Obama could be pretty lonely during his last two years in office if voters decide they want Republican majorities in the House and Senate.” Malloy noted.
