Americans, apparently unhappy with President Obama insulting Asian allies by twice postponing his long-planned trip there this week, have turned against the Democrat in a major poll.Had Mr. Obama actually paid attention at the beginning of last summer, he'd not be in this hole. Of course stupidly pursuing something that is as unpopular of the government taking control of the health care system in this country wasn't very smart either. After all, when normally rather docile American voters begin to agitate against a stated policy in ever growing numbers most politicians are intellingent enough to heed the warnings. But not Barack Obama. He must have the most incompetant advisors in our history...
Now, a new Gallup Poll finds, Obama's public approval rating has suddenly fallen to the worst level since he took office however many years ago that seems. He was right around 70% in January of 2009.
Today, Gallup reports, the ex-senator has plunged to a 46% approval rating.
Today, even more disapprove of his presidency, 48%. That seems right down there in the Sarah Palin neighborhood. [It seems that only Palin is less popular than Obama, ed.]
True, Obama's approval ratings had dropped faster during his first year in office than any recent rookie president. They had hovered around the 50% level the last couple of months.
But in recent days Gallup found Americans suddenly souring even more until more disapprove than approve. [but it couldn't possibly be about wasting his entire 1st year on seizing control of the health care industry could it? All emphasis is mine, ed]
He's appointed the brother of one wavering Congressman to the 9th Judicial Circuit. Promised another that he would be appointed as head of NASA, and yet another would be appointed to be the Ambassador to NATO...when you combine that with all the bribes in the Senate (GatorAid, Louisianna Purchase, CornHusker Kickback), as well as the latest plan to "deem the bill to have passed" by voting for a "rule change" leads me to believe that this administration has no idea just how angry the electorate is becoming with this whole sham.
To exascerbate matters, now Congress, the Democratic leadership is held in the lowest esteem since polling this issue began.
Oh, speaking of Congress, the new Gallup Poll also finds that barely 16% of Americans approve of its job while 80% (as in eight out of every ten Americans) now disapprove of the work being done by both bodies and their Democratic leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Both of whom are up for re-election in November.It doesn't get much lower than that, does it?
