Worst. President. Ever… Obama’s Approval Numbers Sink Below Carter’s


Another record!
Obama’s approval rating officially dropped below Jimmy Carter this week.
Via US News and World Report:

President Obama’s slow ride down Gallup’s daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.

Since March, Obama’s job approval rating has hovered above Carter’s, considered among the 20th century’s worst presidents, but today Obama’s punctured Carter’s dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama’s job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter’s 51 percent…

…What’s more, Gallup finds that Obama’s overall job approval rating so far has averaged 49 percent. Only three former presidents have had a worse average rating at this stage: Carter, Ford, and Harry S. Truman. Only Truman won re-election in an anti-Congress campaign that Obama’s team is using as a model.

    There is a huge difference between President Truman and the illegal alien potus in training pants. President Truman had a sign on his desk that read “the buck stops here.” He took some spectacularly unpopular actions – and he took personal resposibility for them. Iapitpants can’t spell responsibility and runs like hell from accepting any.

    not recorded as low enough yet—about 30% to hi; wake me when it gets to 13%


    let’s correct the headline.


  • He’s double-down on breaking records…………………Next re-election i predict alot of dead-voters raising from their graves and voting twice……………..Mickey Mouse will have to bring Minnie along………….

    Democrats are praying Hillary will throw her lying hat in the ring. What another disgrace that will be. There hasn’t been any scrutinizing of her no matter what the pundits on the left tell you.

    And for Obama, the one, the messiah, hope and change, if America continues on this path we will be done. Homelessness is at an all time high. Unemployed is too. Scandals, Spending, Ignoring illegals, we ranked low on education, Obama care is unconstitutional and will cost us more for great health care, International we are losing are friends, Military underfunded, Socialism and spreading the wealth, Campaigning every day while waiting for another downgrade by S & P, Holder fast and furious disgrace and so much more.

    Yes, this nation has a national debt of 15 trillion thanks to Obama. So, as I see it Obama has never had experience to lead and he was placed on a pedal by the liberals who hated Bush and new that his being black would be an asset. No one could touch him or they would be a racist.

  • myohmy

    Don’t forget to bring your teleprompter when you leave.

  • Patty

    I wish that Congress would stop allowing this monstrosity of a president to stop blaming them.

    Obama’s poll number should be worse than theirs. Seem everyone in Washington is sitting on their has and there are no leaders. They really need to stop using Christie to say what we all are thinking and they need to stop lolly gagging and do the work of the people.

    Obama is toast but the Congress is worse in polls. So, he will continue to campaign against them unless the do the work that this president isn’t. And quickly.

  • Patty

    correction: sitting on their hands. absent.

  • owsk1108

    43% are braindead.

  • #8 bigL: I’m with you. For me, that number isn’t low enough! Not nearly low enough. Who can possibly STILL support this guy?

  • Redwine

    Exactly, Patty. Everyone should be careful what they wish for. If Shrillary steps in, the devastation of this great republic will continue unabated.

  • BarbaraS

    I still find it amazing that he has a 43% rating. What’s wrong with the American people? Are they completely blind? Or is that 43% the group getting support from the rest of us and do nothing for themselves?Then again, I have no confidence in polls, especially the ones run by dims this far from the election season. They are recruiting vots as we speak.

  • he couldn’t care less.

    It’s nothing to brag about, but this subprime errand boy turned out to be every bit as bad as I thought he would be.

    But if you’re union or black, he’s the greatest president of all time. And your union-slug teachers are indoctrinating your children into believing that.

    P.S. See Drudge for the black school administrator in Philadelphia who got almost a million bucks in severance and applied for unemployment compensation. There’s your Obama lover. Even with a million in the bank, they’re still parasites.

  • JPeden

    Carter only advanced to his progressively rancid Communist mentality much later on. With Obama, it was Progressively much earlier. He’s a Head Start quick “learner” = a permanent dimwit. And dimming progressively faster, as in a very bad disease. [mmm…mmm…mmm]

    But hey, Obama does have the best latte’ brain flatus evah! and the best cocktail parties, which is what counts among the likewise progressively effete Progressives! [mmm…mmm…mmm]

  • mercador

    And people are worried about the cain stories? This guy makes Cain an alter boy. This is the guy that is toast, not Cain.

  • JPeden

    What is Obama building under the WhiteHouse?

    Hopefully it’s a spaceship to get him and his “people” back to his Planet of The Pod People, like “The Thing” was trying to do back in the ’50’s.

  • Hacker 69

    As much I believe an approval ratings in single digits is too high for this idiot, its not something to wish for. The more his approval numbers sink the greater the pressure for him to be replaced, pushed out, primaried, or a brokered convention, by a Hillary or a dem without as strong negatives.(which in my book is none of them). Let him swim with his high 30’s low 40’s approval rating in the cesspool of his own making. Getting re-elected with those numbers is highly unlikely.

  • Objective Analysis

    Nothing escapes me for this Usurper and Imposter in office of POTUS. I am wondering how low can you go?

  • JPeden

    “Him”, from Outer Space! He sure doesn’t have much inner space.

    One big difference between Truman and the Subprime Blowhard: Truman dropped atomic bombs on Japan; Blowhard has dropped a left-wing neutron bomb on America. It kills businesses and taxpayers and savers, but leaves the parasites standing.

    Obama Abandons the Working Class

    An opening for Romney, if he’s smart enough.

    []The timing may be a little embarrassing, appearing as it does on the eve of Mr. Obama’s visit to Scranton. Still, the authors are probably correct. For all of Joe Biden’s nostalgia about the blue-collar virtues of his home town (where he hasn’t lived since the early days of the Eisenhower administration), the coal mines shut down years ago and many in the white working class have been drifting to the Republican Party.

    The authors therefore suggest that Mr. Obama’s best demographic bet for 2012 lies in holding white college graduates. They are also up front about the vulnerability. Mostly they phrase it politely—”the perceived inability of the Obama administration’s policies to spark real recovery”; “serious doubts about Democratic stewardship of the economy”; or “disenchantment on the economy.”

    That shouldn’t be a hard sell in places like Scranton, where the 9.7% unemployment rate is the worst in the state. When the Obama stimulus came, Lackawanna County spent nearly half of the $39 million it received on education, which means teachers. The city has been deemed “financially distressed” for two decades, and just this month the mayor released a new budget that includes a 29% hike in property taxes.

    If these citizens weren’t bitter before, they sure have reason to be now. For the white working class, the private sector was what gave them jobs and propelled them into the middle class. Yet whether it’s drilling for oil or putting up a shopping mall, today’s Democratic Party seems opposed to most of the private-sector jobs that deliver opportunity to those without a college degree.]

    Manufactured Racism Hurts Blacks More Than Real Racism

    Oh, the reminiscences. When stationed in North Carolina during my service as a U.S. Marine, a black mayoral candidate was caught spray painting racist graffiti on his own home, probably conspiring for cheap campaign publicity. Later, while attending Miami University, the Center for Black Culture and Learning was strewn with racist and anti-homosexual fliers. Students, ever seeking something to protest, promptly shut down the main thoroughfare.

Considering that you’re all racist pigs and you want black people neutered, it is not surprising in the slightest that you think he’s “truly a miserable piece of crap President.”  

    No doubt, you thought he was a “piece of crap” before he even started.

    Whose are these 43%? 13% of the US population is black. Plus another 3% Muslims and then add majority populations of other third world minorities which gets you to say 25%. Then you have the liberals in new York, Californian and college liberals….

  • Some Black Chick

    First and foremost, not all ELIGIBLE voters belonging to various minority groups will support Obama, unconditionally. His lavish vehicle deemed ‘hope and change’ has run out of premium gas. Therefore you can scrap this stupid theory of another instance where the Anointed One receives approximately eighty percent of minority’s feul to boost him into office to serve a second term. Put your irrational drivel aside for a moment to answer the following questions? 1) If Obama Bin Lying already has the “minority vote” in his presidential pocket, then why is he wasting millions of dollars by creating several outreach programs to acquire support from his so-called voting blocs? Sure, there will be blacks (among Latinos, Asians, natives, etc) casting their ballots for Barack next year, but the turn-out will be less than that of 2008. Nothing has changed for me, I personally didn’t fancy him THEN and certainly don’t fancy him RIGHT NOW. Like an X amount of black Americans, I’ll probably sit on my hands come November.
