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.

    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.

    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.

    correction: sitting on their hands. absent.

    #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.
