Ouch!… Failed President Obama 42% – Any Republican 46% in Latest Poll

Obama’s approval index is holding at -16 points.

Failed president Barack Obama trails the generic Republican candidate by 4 points in latest poll.
Rasmussen reported:

A generic Republican candidate now holds a four-point lead over President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election matchup. It’s a fifth week in a row that the GOP candidate has been ahead and the widest gap between the candidates to date.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds a generic Republican candidate earns support from 46% of Likely U.S. Voters, while the president picks up 42% of the vote. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and nine percent (9%) are undecided.

    This is the only poll that I will half way believe! The rest of the polls are rigged to make their kenyan fraud look good!


    the only poll I want to see is a landslide repub victory Nov. 2012

  • Dan

    I am really going to enjoy watching the news media on election night tearfully report that their messiah Obama has been defeated by the head Momma Grizzly.

  • Ella

    #1 American – it’s coming. It’s going to be worse, much worse, than last November. Start saving up for a good bottle of champagne for that wonderful night in November 2012 when we collectively and overwhelmingly throw that freak out.

  • jainphx

    What could 42% of the polled be thinking, don’t they have eyes? With all the modern ways to educate ones self, 42% chooses to remain ignorant.

  • forest

    Incumbent pulling 42%. Brutal.

    58% have decided they don’t want to vote for this guy. Doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll vote for the Republican either, but that’ll be tough for the Regime and the MSM to overcome.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    You have got to realize how bad this really is for Democrats given that the media is in overdrive propping up the failed presidency of Barack Obama by burying any news which is unfavorable and hyping the falsity that the Obama Administration is doing a wonderful job and everything is rosy (else just blame Bush!). Moreover, such polls are greatly skewed by polling a large number of confirmed diehard Democrats and a small number of wishy-washy fence-sitting RINO’s.

    I’d wager a goodly sum that this index is actually TWICE what it’s showing.

  • theBuckWheat

    Jimmy Obama

  • Mark

    These numbers are scary. It means nearly 40% of your fellow Americans are idiots.

  • jeff

    Yes that’s what’s needed: another Republican in office because, afterall, it worked out so well last time. What a Jerry Springer nation this country is. Land of the idiots and home of braindead.

  • Bruce

    Hope and change

  • the wolf

    Shouldn’t that headline be: “How Can 42% Of Voters Be So Stupid?”

  • Kingslayor

    No this idiot will sell the rest of the Americans out right before the election by giving the illegal aliens amesty!!! Then they’ll have their vote for the next election in 2016. By that time the country will be called Amexicana the 1st north American banna republic!!

  • FurryGuyJeans

    Too bad Jimmah Cahtah didn’t know and use the proven Chicago Techniques of stealing elections.

    The election fraud that will happen in 2012 will be a large obstacle for whoever is the GOP candidate to overcome.

    I remember all the headlines, US and International, asking virtually the same thing about 53% of US voters when Bush won reelection in 2004.

  • gus

    By ANY STANDARD Obama is a miserable failure. What the fuk did any of you expect. His past is hidden, and his accomplishments in life add up to Rezko, Wright, Ayers, Pfleger, and Khalidi.

    QUICK, name an associate of friend of Obama’s that isn’t a commie.


    @#10….and just what do you propose???? or are you an undercover mooslime odumbass suporter…like the other brain dead A-holes that elected him….move along troll…nothing to see here

  • RedBeard

    Post #10 is just a sign that the useful idiots on the left are worried.

  • Teddy

    The only tactic the #10 types have. Arguing the past. A totally worthless waste of intellect and time.

    Libs can’t argue the present or the future because their messiah turns out to be a Chicago Thug that doesn’t have the brains to be interested in being president or have the smarts to do so, anyway.

    I’d take Boehner over Obama in a battle of wits any day. A generic GOP has a statistically significant lead over an incumbent pres. What’s not to like?

  • gus

    Yeah that last Republican was awful 5% unemployment, robust economy no commies in office
    Terrible times those were.

  • gus

    Teddy if Obama and Boehner had a battle of wits, they’d be 2 WITS short of a battle.
    Boehner DOES NOT……..GET IT.
    Obama is not honest. Expecting him to be honest is like expecting the SCORPION not to sting you. In fact Obama is EXTREMELY DISHONEST.
    Boner needs to be SAYING THAT. This needs to be about Obama and his IDEOLOGY. Not about how difficult the negotiations are. LIBTARDS don’t want prosperity, they want IDEOLOGICAL TALKING POINTS to get re-elected on.

  • jeff

    #10 here again to respond to the moronic replies to my earlier one. First off, I am neither a Republican or a Democrat and here’s why: there is no difference. Anyone who thinks otherwise is an uneducated fool successfully manipulated by the media. Obama didn’t fool anyone, he was put into office by people more powerful than him, the people in the shadow government: the C.O.G. (Continuity of Government for those of you who do not know what that means). Wake up sheeple. Do you die-hard GOP followers realize that the largest fascist move in the history of this country happened under GOP rule? I’m talking about the so-called $700 billion bailout. $700 billion in your taxpayer money that went to banks and insurance companies and it did NOTHING except make them buy up smaller firms to consolidate their power. That scam was sold as a bailout to you but it was nothing but theft. That’s what I was referring to when I said you are idiots if you think getting GOP leadership back in the White House is going to resurrect this kamikaze course this country is on.

  • Chisum


    Moronic, huh?

    In the first place, GW Bush left $350 million of TARP for BO to allocate.

    In the second place, according to the Treasury Dept, 99% TARP has been paid back.


    Unlike the TRILLION DOLLAR stimulus. The monies have never been tracked nor accounted for. There will be no paybacks. The money is GONE!

    Now that’s “unprecedented”!

  • Valerie

    Obama bought into that “never waste a crisis” philosophy, presumably because he was told that, even if the economy did not turn around in 18 months or so as promised, things would definitely be rebounding by November 2012, so he wouldn’t even have to worry about the interim numbers. We are almost a year and a half away from that point.

    He has shown some insight into the value of the economic advice he has followed, by observing that “there is no such thing as a shovel-ready project,” but he has given no indication of having larger questions about the consequences of his fiscal policies.

    The foundation for the Republican and Tea Party viewpoint is an understanding that economic purchasing decisions are most efficiently made by the actual consumer, who is also paying for the goods or services very near the time of use.

    People who believe in Big Government action tend to discount the inefficiency involved when someone other than the end user is making purchasing decisions 18 months or more in advance of actual use. They honestly think that intelligent planning by people working for the government will result in better decisions than those made by ordinary citizens.

    The Russians tried this for decades, with a series of 5-year plans, because they simply could not comprehend that Russian peasants, on their own, without co-ordination or a plan, could make their own economic decisions better than their government could do it for them.

    In the United States, we have, among other things, a Congress that thought it could make lending decisions better than banks, and technology choices better than investors.

  • tommy mc donnell

    42% of the people are in complete denial.

    the place where america was really bad when bush was president was in the media.

  • No Man

    Merely confirms the fact that 42% of the US are freaking morons . . .

  • jeff

    #23…Moronic yes. Bush didn’t leave $350 million on the table for Obama it was $350 billion (but I’m sure that was just a typo). Still, the $700 billion “emergency” bailout was constructed and implemented under a GOP administration.

    Anyone who believes that 99% of the TARP money is paid back probably also believes that a guy in a cave in a third world country was able to confuse the most sophisticated military in the world and pull off 9/11 with his donkey-riding soldiers!

    Do a YouTube video search for “Donald Rumsfeld $2.3 trillion Sept 10, 2001”. The day before 9/11, Rumsfeld was being questioned about $2.3 trillion dollars that was missing – yes missing – from the Pentagon budget that couldn’t be accounted for. He had no answers but fortunately for him, the next day a Boeing commercial jet supposedly slammed into the very office that had the financial records (although there’s never been any video footage of a Boeing or Boeing wreckage found) and the whole issue has just gone away…$2.3 trillion dollars of our money. Don’t get pissed off at me, the messenger, pointing out corruption. All I am saying is people need to stop falling for the false left/right rhetoric that is there to deliberately distract you from the real crimes that are happening.

  • Chisum

    I see. So the Treasury Dept report I referenced, even though it is detailed, isn’t acceptable.

    Not one word in response about my points in regard to the stimulus.

    Then you start ranting about Rumsfeld and tell me to search for“Donald Rumsfeld $2.3 trillion Sept 10, 2001″. Which I did.

    And guess what? It’s a FREAKING MYTH.


    Yet you come here and call US morons.


  • jeff

    Chisum, excuse me for overestimating your intelligence. The link you mention about “99%” of TARP funds being paid back is in reference to only 6 of dozens – dozens – financial and insurance institutions which received the cash (please reread). You also haven’t mentioned (or aren’t aware of) the $500 BILLION of TARP money that our Fed Chairman gave out to foreign banks…with no oversight. That is also on YouTube. That $500 billion will NEVER be paid back…as it was never intended to be paid back.

    Lastly, for you to cite a “9/11 Myths” link as your rebuttal shows how little you know about disinformation. Are you aware that three buildings fell on 9/11 yet only two were hit by airplanes? Imagine that: a 47-story steel skyscraper that was not hit by an airplane fell down to the ground in a neat pile in 6 seconds (www.wtc7.net). That is not a myth, it’s a fact…and the leaseholder (Larry Silverstein) paid $14 million 6 weeks before 9/11 and collected $4 billion+ in claims after 9/11. Not a myth. Follow the money, it always leads to the criminals…the real criminals. Not the criminals CNN and Fox told you about.

    Stop watching CNN and Fox News, you are polluting your mind with nonsense.

    I will not be responding anymore to this so have at it…but do your homework next time.

  • RedBeard

    Oh, brother. Jeff drops a steaming pile of 9/11 conspiracy manure, then runs away from the discussion. How typical.

    What’s next, a discussion of Karl Rove’s Hurricane Machine that he used to destroy New Orleans?

  • Chisum


    Let me make sure I read you right.

    I post links to credible websites, backing up my assertions.

    You direct me to…youtube.

    Then you wrote this:

    Stop watching CNN and Fox News, you are polluting your mind with nonsense.

    Yet you direct me to…youtube.
    (No “disinformation” there. Oh no.)

    You need to take your sorry truther self and take a long hike. I expect it’s too late to improve your IQ but it might improve your disposition. And maybe even help you to capture some self awareness.

    Seriously, you are silly.
