Obama Receives Lowest Job Approval Rating Of His Administration

November 2, 2010 by  

Obama receives lowest job approval rating of his administrationIn a sign that doesn't bode well for the Democratic Party heading into today's midterm elections, the approval rating for President Barack Obama has reached its lowest level since he was inaugurated 21 months ago.

The latest Harris Poll reveals that 67 percent of Americans have a negative opinion of the job Obama is doing, while 89 percent of those surveyed do not approve of the performance by the Democratic-led Congress.

Most citizens who gave the President the highest ratings were those with a postsecondary education. Approximately 48 percent of those with a post-graduate education gave Obama a positive review, while 47 percent of those with any college background approved of the commander-in-chief.

Meanwhile, nine in 10 Republicans gave Obama negative ratings, seven in 10 independents and six in 10 moderates agreed with conservatives. The majority of nonpartisan voters who disapprove of the President and Congress strengthens the notion that Republicans will gain control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

Some Democratic candidates for Congress are distancing themselves from the President in an effort to help their cause on Election day. Politico.com reports that West Virginia Senate candidate Joe Manchin said he may not endorse Obama if he runs for reelection in 2012 unless he sees significant strides.

"Things have got to change. People will have time to evaluate and make a decision over the next two years and four years," Manchin told the news provider. "I just think there's a lot of correction, a lot of changes, a lot of things that need to be fixed before I would say anything about anybody running for office."

    if his rating is above the rock from which he crawled from under thats still to high.

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    Obama without his teleprompter is like a TV and a lost remote. Both still function but not as well. He refers to those who disagree with his politics as ‘the enemies’. Wow! Even if he thought that and said it in his inner circles, saying it aloud and televising that message coast to coast was and will be costly to him. I guess you could say, ‘ he spoke stupidly’. If anyone wonders why his approval ratings are continuing to drop, then they simply are not listening!

    • Terry

      Regrettably, BHO is not a unifier. His rhetoric is divisive. He thrives in an atmosphere of class warfare. He will do well when he is returned to Chicago in two years. But as President, he clearly doesn’t get it.

    • 45caliber

      I have noted one thing about him. His “enemies” are those in the US who disagrees with him. They are NOT anyone who threatens the US. Those he ignores.

      And here is why his friends will also have to go with him.

      http://www.redstate.com

      By Moe Lane

      What a title: “Grim Democrats await huge House losses.”

      Not nearly as much as we are, of course: but they’re frantically counting up their likely losses, and forecasting fifty to seventy (which means, obviously, that we need to increase that to seventy to ninety).

      At this point, the consensus seems to be among a variety of remaining-nameless professional Democrats that everyone in the House within the margin of error is going to lose to the Republican nominee.

      These people are on the verge of watching a large percentage of their client list – and in many cases, friends and members of their social circle – be thrown out of work right in the middle of one of the most toxic employment environments in recent history. And they’ve been fighting it for a year and nothing worked.

      Now, some of you (more of you, I suspect, than are willing to admit it) read the paragraph above and then started to feel … pity. Or empathy, because it happened to you in 2006 and 2008. Or merely a natural desire to not kick someone when they are down. And those are laudable impulses to have.

      But before you act on those impulses with regard to these professional Democrats, please remember this:

      These people told their clients to say that you hate African-Americans.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate Latinos.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate gays.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate women.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate Jews.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate Muslims.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate the poor.
      These people told their clients to say that you hate America.

      Shall I continue?

      These people told their clients to say that you were fascists.
      These people told their clients to say that you were theocrats.
      These people told their clients to say that you were stupid.
      These people told their clients to say that you were uneducated.
      These people told their clients to say that you were hatemongers.
      These people told their clients to say that you were insane.
      These people told their clients to say that you were violent extremists.

      I can keep this going for quite a while, you know.

      These people told their clients to call you unpatriotic.
      These people told their clients to call you cowards.
      These people told their clients to mock you at every opportunity.
      These people told their clients to deliberately use a sexual slur when referring to you.
      These people told their clients to trivialize and dismiss your concerns at every opportunity.

      And now these professional Democrats are sad because they’re going to lose.

      Well, they deserve to lose, because they are bad people and because the entire point of the United States of America is to make sure that bad people lose.

      So GO VOTE today and make as many bad people as possible lose.

    • http://naver sook young

      I agree with you. We’ve been praying for this country every night. This reminds me of something my husband told me about freedom:

      “It is religion and morality, alone, which we can establish the principles upon which freedom can surely stand.”

      John Adams
      2nd U.S. President

      The religion in question is Christianity and our faith in God and Jesus. For freedom is only granted to us by God and not men. This would also mean that this administration is against what John Adams says in this quote. It is highly immoral and cannot establish the principles of freedom, due to it’s lack of direction, leadership, and taking us farther away from God, it cannot stand and our freedoms are in peril. Thank you.

        Faith in God plays a big part in how we live and the freedoms we enjoy. But our ancestors had to shed their blood so we can have freedom. The day may come when we will have to shed ours if there is no other way. I like to be optimistic about the elections but how do we know the person we voted for hasn’t already been corrupted. We don’t.

          Thank you, fellow patriot! I hope you voted today, because we did. We arrived about 6:30 this morning. I had a little trouble at the registration table where we vote, because it was my wife’sfirst time voting and they wanted me to prove she was my wife. Why? Maybe the person was a lib, but being the good soldier I came prepared. I brought a copy of our marriage certificate for I.D. After they were satisfied, they let her go and vote. She was so excited that she literally ran to the voting booth. Now, we’re just waiting to see if the one’s we voted for have won. Let’s keep up the good fight, fellow patriots! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    It is not only our Leaders failed policys in which have turned the American people agianst him, it is his character. A person is judged upon his actions and whom he associates himself with. Our President has choosen in poor taste in both these aspects throughout his life and it shows in his decisions as a leader. The American people as well have responsibility for is their duty to investigate who they put in that position before hand. Yes, our President has failed us in many ways with his lies, failed policies, his treasonous acts against our constitution and his associations with his known terrorist and appointed Czars. So, I do not need a bias media telling me I am racist or only picking on him because he is inheriting a failed administration from the former President…THIS President has nobody to blame for his faults but himself. We are accountable for our actions and I think it is time he be held the same.

    • 45caliber

      It seems to me that one of his biggest “actions” is inaction. In other words, is a problem comes up, he tries to get someone else to handle it rather than doing anything hiself.

  • minnie

    In Texas it is 7:51 a.m. and I was the first one that voted in my precinct. I voted straight Republican, because I am voting against obama. I know he is not in the ballot but its the same thing because all the democrats voted for obamadeathcare. Obama said that he can because he is the president, he forgets that not everyone voted for him. Instead of him trying to change my opinion of him he proved to me I was right about not voting for him. I have VOTED AGAINST NO. 1 HIS OBAMACARE that HE KNEW we did not want it but did not care. NO.2 VOTED AGAINST his policy that KILLS JOBS, HE KNEW but did not care. NO.3 VOTING AGAINST obama STEALING OUR TAXPAYERS MONEY to payback criminals FOR VOTING FOR HIM. NO.4 ALL THE STIMULAS MONEY HE SPEND THAT WAS NOT HIS, VOTED AGAINST MICHELLE OBAMA TAKING VERY EXPENSIVE VACATIONS ON OUR DIME, WHILE AMERICANS HAD VERY LITTLE FOOD BECAUSE not everybody that qualified for food stamps applied, some people refuse to apply for food stamps so it is very irritating seeing news on t.v. that michelle obama was out spending our money to prove a point to her husband so she decides to go to another country and spend OUR AMERICAN DOLLARS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, did not even spend them here in AMERICA. WHILE OBAMA IS SAYING we need to spend this stimulas money how is it going to help if he spends it in another country NOT HERE. But we know that even a stupid LAWYER knows that IF YOU WANT THE GRASS IN YOUR YARD GREEN YOU DO NOT WATER YOUR NEIGHBORS YARD INSTEAD. EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE he has done on purpose, MEAN SPIRIT, EVIL. One-half the trouble of this life can be traced to saying yes too quick, and NOT SAYING NO SOON ENOUGH. The demoncrats have said YES to everything obama wanted, WHEN THEY SHOULD HAVE SAID NO. During this administration it is better to say NO!!!!!!!

    • 45caliber

      I’ll vote this evening but I plan to do the same thing.

      Notice how the article already called us stupid. By searching and searching for something positive they came up with the demographic that those with college degrees had the highest regard for him. Kind of a back handed way of saying what Obama thinks of us Bible and gun toten regular unwashed masses. If everyone was a college graduate we wouldn’t hate him quite so much.
      Or is it saying something about the socialist brainwashing that goes on in America’s universities??

    Obama does not care about securing our borders, especially in ARIZONA. BECAUSE OF HIS ACTIONS OR INACTIONS MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE OR BE KILLED by those criminals, trying to bring all those drugs to our country determine to kill anyone that gets in their way. I thought about that also when I voted REPUBLICANS.

  • a progressive nightmare

    How could anyone at this point see OBLAMA’s rating do anything but Tank? He has crammed his progressive-marxist socialist agenda down our throats without ANY regard to our constitution even though we CLEARLY said not no but Hexx no! He seems to confuse the presidency with being a KING or a dictator or a god.

    Hopefully today will be the beginning of REAL change back to some common sense solutions to our ever increasing list of problems created by a bunch of foolish power hungry people we currently have in office. It’s time to get these jack-booted self-appointed MARXIST THUGS sent back to the holes they crawled out of and then RESTORE the REPUBLIC.

    I voted this morning at 7:15 and if those that I have placed my trust in are elected, then they have ONE term to prove their loyalty to WE THE PEOPLE within the boundaries of OUR constitution. I will hold their feet to the fire and if they do not force OBLAMA to veto the repeal of this dumb OBLAMACARE, and enforce our immigration laws, and reduce spending, and drastically reduce the size and scope of the federal government and restore constitutional government, then, it will be a VERY short stay in Washington for all of these newly elected SERVANTS.

They either don’t know or don’t care about the damage BHO has done to America over the past 21 months. And of course there are so many drones and leeches who could care less about our national debt, as long as it means government handouts to them.

    Obama has done catastrophic damage to America and continues to do so. On one count alone, border security, he is endangering our country every single day. A list of the other crimes he’s committed would take too long. It is my belief that he should be impeached and tried for treason along with his henchmen.

  • Hans Brinkhuis

    I Think that Michelle & Barack Obama are better off t go back to Kenya,When Michelle was there she said it is great to be in our native country,it might be better for tem t move in with his own people . I Learned from my sister who lives in Kenya for many years
    and husband died there he was an AirFrance Manager,but my sister said
    that Kenya is very corrupt and nothing is woprking anymore,they can go toyour property and take just a pece of land away I even told my sster to sell her houe and property as soon as posible and move to us in the USA before it is to late .That’s why I say it is bette for Obama to move there he might be more happy overthere.
    If he does we do not want to give him his pension from the presidency of the USA so we can pay off te debt he created for us and if he wish he can take his whole adminstration with him it would save a lots of money for the USA. Thank You

    You can almost guarantee that the rating will be lower from one day to the next. He continues to drop in ratings more than any other President I’ve ever seen.

  • Mark

    In this hussein obama’s way of thinking, those that still support him are the enemies of the people of the United States. he never has been a president and he sure as heck ain’t my commander-n-chief, more like imposter-n-thief. The easy way out of this mess is to simply eliminate those that follow this fool, game over. he deserves a negative rating. And for destroying America by bowing to other countries leaders he deserves the sentence of treason and the end of a short rope on a tall tree, next to robin carnahan, pelosi and the rest of the thiefs from hell.

      Chris darling … many of us agree with you … that’s why we are sending conservatives to replace many of them!!! Stay with us now and let’s compare our CHANGE to obama’s change.

    Four questions for Republicans…and four answers for undecided voters:

    Questions:

    1. What was the average monthly private sector job growth in 2008, the final year of the Bush presidency, and what has it been so far in 2010?
    2. What was the Federal deficit for the last fiscal year of the Bush presidency, and what was it for the first full fiscal year of the Obama presidency?
    3. What was the stock market at on the last day of the Bush presidency? What is it at today?
    4. Which party’s candidate for speaker campaigned last weekend with a Nazi reenactor who dressed up in a SS uniform?

    Answers:

    1. In 2008, we lost an average of 317,250 private sector jobs per month. In 2010, we have gained an average of 95,888 private sector jobs per month. (Source) That’s a difference of nearly five million jobs between Bush’s last year in office and President Obama’s second year. Source: http://www.bls.gov/data/#employment
    2. In FY2009, which began on September 1, 2008 and represents the Bush Administration’s final budget, the budget deficit was $1.416 trillion. In FY2010, the first budget of the Obama Administration, the budget deficit was $1.291 trillion, a decline of $125 billion. Yes, that means President Obama has cut the deficit — there’s a long way to go, but we’re in better shape now than we were under Bush and the GOP. Source: http://www.cbo.gov/ftpdocs/119xx/doc11936/SeptemberMBR.pdf
    3. On Bush’s final day in office, the Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 closed at 7,949, 1,440, and 805, respectively. Today, as of 10:15AM Pacific, they are at 11,108, 2,512, and 1,183. That means since President Obama took office, the Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 have increased 40%, 74%, and 47%, respectively. Source: http://finance.yahoo.com
    4. The Republican Party, whose candidate for speaker, John Boehner, will campaign with Nazi re-enactor Rich Iott last weekend. If you need an explanation why this is offensive, you are a lost cause.

    The moral of the story is this: if you vote Republican, I hope you enjoy Election Day — because you’re not going to like what comes next.

      Did you factor in who had control of the Senate & Congress in your 2008 calculations or did you forget about Pelosi’s “100 days of change” back in 2006. I guess you too believe the President of the United States and the Republicans had complete control of the country in 2008.

      Personally, they setup the country for failure so that a full Socialist control of the US could be established. Notice I didn’t say Democrat control.

      I don’t like either party, I really don’t trust “progressives” who are just socialists masquerading as democrats. This country was a Republic until it was sold down the river in 1913.

      You failed to mention that Obama was a Senator at the time that Bush was President and all bills passed thru congress the last year of Bush’s administration. Who may I ask passed those bills??? Who held the majority seats in Senate??? Yes the democrates, so before you start pointing fingers at Bush again you need to remember that Obama himself was on the senate seat that passed those bill that helped us end up in our economic fall! Why don’t You get in the back of the car for a while for he needs to be held accountable for his treasonous acts!

      What is all this horror at someone playing a Nazi in a re-enactment? In every re-enactment (or other drama,) someone has to play the good guy and someone has to play the bad guy. Without a bad guy, you have a parade, not a re-enactment.

      During WWII, the freedom-loving actor Conrad Viedt (remembered as playing the thoroughly dispicable Nazi, Major Strasser, in the movie Casablanca) took great pride in portraying Nazi characters as unsympathetically as possible. This was his own contribution to the war effort.

      Just because a person puts on a Nazi uniform for a performance doesn’t make him a Nazi sympathizer.

    I say lets give him a bigger microphone he will need it to speak around that foot in his mouth. Every time this guy goes off the prompter he creates a bigger gaff. So let him preach all he wants the more people hear what he really thinks the futher his numbers drop. By 2012 he should have turned even his base off to the point where it will guarntee conservitives a victor. :) Mike L.

    It’s still higher than that budget buster Ronald Reagan’s was at this point in his presidency!

      Give him time it will be if he keeps insulting the american people the way he does. And a point about Regan. Destroying the communist reign in Russia wasent popular at the time but I never herd him call the american people the enemey if they didnt agree with him.So I will still rate him historically miles above Obama.

    One thing Obummer does very well, is to fly all around our Great Nation in “The People’s AF-One”, spending millions in taxpayer dollars to campaign for his cohorts instead of doing what we elect presidents to do: Stay in Washington, DC, and try to make our nation better for ALL Americans…not just the members of his own party!!

    • a progressive nightmare

      Yep, and he has a 10 day trip planned to India and is taking over 3,000 people on 40 jets at a cost of $200 MILLION per day for a total trip cost of about $2 BILLION!

      The audacity of progressive-marxism never ceases to amaze me. We have 10% unemployment, 13 TRILLION in debt, 125+ Trillion in unfunded liabilities and he continues to spend our grandchildrens money like a drunken fool.

    From the history books in 2050: “Much fanfare was made of B.H. Obama being elected as the first Black President, yet within a couple of years he became as inconsequencial as Chester A. Author.”

    Since democrats always worry about the global warming , mass transit, and minorities. This will be their parting massive stimulas project. First go to all black and heavely minorities population centers, plant lots of big viney trees, smaller cities will just have 100′ wide tree zones for blocks on end. It will be all free mass transportation with no fares or maintance. The minorities can return to their hertitage of the vine transportation of tree to tree. It would keep them in shape and to keep moving have chitlens every twenty trees with tacos and raisin jack juice, until they reach their desired weight

    After scanning comments on this topic, I saw only 3 responses that came from a progressive. It may be a bit early, but I sense that progressives who usually infest this website are out trolling for dead voters to do their ‘thing.’
    I don’t have a functioning crystal ball, but it seems safe to conclude that Americans are much more than just ‘mad’ at the scumbags who make up the current administration. Make this election count, America. And when the dust settles, remind the new faces in Washington that they didn’t get sent east to become slaves of the RNC. Up the rebels!

    We keep hearing about our employed civil servant who was hired under the name, “Barack Obama.” But who the heck is this guy? Who is he working for? Yes, he’s living in our prepaid government housing on Pennsylvania avenue. And yes, he’s been spending all…and I do mean “all”….of our hard earned tax money without consideration to his employers who have earned and own it. But, as a responsible, competent employer, aren’t YOU the least bit interested in knowing this employee’s real name and where he was born? Don’t you think you’ve earned the right to know? Aren’t you curious to know if he is actually qualified to perform the job duty’s for which he was hired? Indeed, most employers find out who their job applicants are BEFORE they are hired…..not when it’s too late and the business is bankrupt. Just a thought.

    OBAMA AVOIDS BIBLE VERSES !

    Here are some Bible verses that Pres. Obama avoids:
    Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): “It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury – how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!”
    Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under “a servant who becomes king.”
    And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: “let thy words be few…a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”
    Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he’s destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
    Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!

    67% negative?? It’s finally closer to where it should be!! Of course it’s pathetic that people didn’t realize this before they made such a foolish mistake in the 11/4/2008 election. We can blame the lame stream media for its bias, which made BHO look like a moderate while hiding his radical ideology and leftwing mentors. If everyone had listened to Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, et al, and read websites like this and CNSnews, they would’ve known what a didsaster BHO would be, and he could’ve been defeated. I always try to encourage friends and family members to read your site, and I can’t believe their ignorant responses. I also tell them to listen to (conservative) talk radio hosts, as they can learn a lot more than they learn by listening to those rinky dink FM music stations!!

    Why when everyone knows the truth that he is not a American Born citizen with two American Born Parents why he is still in the White House, is everyone afraid of him?

    Welll…I’m college educated, with a Bachelors degree in Computer science with minors in Art and Math. AND I was offered a full ride for my masters working as a GA. No I didn’t finish as I was offered a good job which I took. See, I earned my BS at age 50. I may be a little slow, but I ain’t stupid. Obama’s budget and those singing its praises are throwing a line of pure BS so deep I don’t think hip boots would save us.

    At-any-rate, they missed me on the survey as I certainly do not approve of Obama’s performance, nor that of the Democrats (Much as I hate to admit it I voted for him) …or the Republicans who cave to big government and raising the debt ceiliing.
