Do you approve of President Obama's job performance? (July 2013)
America has always been messesd up no matter who the president was/is.
The more things CHANGE, the more they stay the SAME.
Good question. For more good questions FOLLOW ME
Hey dems, how do you justify 81% of you approving of OBozo's job performance? Based on what TANGIBLE evidence other than " you like him" or you're going to "stand by your president"...those are lame non answers...so why? Why dems do you approve 81%?
69% disapprove. That is UP from last month! Barry is slipping!!! And it's going to keep getting worse for. King Obama!
Hey liberal morons! What has O done to help you lately? Did you get an Obamaphone??Will you be vacationing with the "royal" family in Martha's Vineyard? King Obama takes yet ANOTHER vacation! Did he invite you along?
Hey tea baggers, where can I buy a" I spend all my time hating Obama because I have no life " bumper sticker?
Do they sell them where you buy your crayons for your coloring books?
Yeah they're right next to the "I take zero responsibility for any of my actions" bumper stickers your party makes me buy then hands out to you and your unemployed parents.
Hey shady remember you're a Bagger too.... A douche bag!!!
I don't know, almost a week went by without a single bagger comment blaming Obama for their pathetic lives. Maybe they found someone else to blame?
Don't worry, you idiots will have Hillary Clinton to blame in 2016.
I wouldn't be too sure of that shady. Between the scandals and vacations and the lack of hope and change, it looks like your grand liberal victory back in 2008 is what has failed here. The real losers are the American people that voted for this jerk.
Whatever it is...it IS Obama's fault. It's a cloudy day... Obama's fault...stock market down ...Obama's fault... Lack of respect for our country in the world OBAMA'S FAULT...4 people dead in Benghazi ..... OBAMA'S FAULT....keystone pipeline not being
....built, OBAMA'S FAULT... fence on our southern boarder not completely finished even though it was properly funded....OBAMA'S FAULT....rules of engagement putting our soldiers at risk and emboldening our enemies...OBAMA'S FAULT...ETC...ETC...ETC...
You just can't defend this idiot of a president. He's a Democratic Party hack and has no experience relevant to running a country. He has learned NOTHING from his time in office. 2017 get here quick! This loser president has got to go!
All bullshít. This is the ignorance and stupidity of the extreme right wing. Which is why your party lost despite Obamas many faults. Fùck the pipeline. Means nothing for jobs or any but the oil company profits. Profits they don't invest in USA.
Did you credit the stock market going up to the president as well? Do you numbnuts even see your stupidity and hypocrisy anymore? How was Benghazi obamas fault?
Nevermind,its like arguing with a four year old.
I cant stand it that people voted for him because he's black
Im black and i dont approve of it!
Hell no, I disapprove, the Democrats think Bush created hurricane Katrina, well Obama created the oil spill. That's how stupid democrats are, they blamed a hurricane on the president.
31% of america likes being lied too
Of course Dems support him. Look at the Democrat senator who said printing a trillion dollar bill would get rid of our debt. That is the stupidity of his party and sheep!People actually believe his views, lies & they continue to accept his scandals.
can someone tell me why we still have an electoral college
Why, would you want it changed? I would say we probably couldn't agree to change it.
This is the only answer that is acceptable.
Oh great god! 81% of democrats approve. They need to get some data ????
But what else can they do? They can't admit that the bought the lies of the charlatan in chief!
I do not support him at all, I don't like debt
The debt has gone done under his watch...not up as it did under the previous president...duh!
But he's still my president and I will support him.
Okay, you support him...what is there to support him on? Immigration? fail. Transparency? fail. hope and Change? fail. Bengazi? BIG fail. Foreign policy? Fail. Egypt? Sending planes, tanks and weapons to the Muslim brotherhood? HUGE FAIL. Support? Ha
Jenna the lemming ... keep following the liar in chief right off the cliff. Don't you dare look up or think for yourself as it may hurt you.
Just because I'm going to support the man elected to run the country means I don't think for myself? I do. But honestly, what can I do right now? I'm a teenager. I have NO say so over the things going on in my country. I don't agree with the things..
He's doing or spending money on, but why call him a terrorist or talk about how he should die or other things like that? It'll get me nowhere.
Jenna ... I can't speak for anyone else, but I do not wish MrO harm. I just wish he weren't such a failure as a leader. His policies, and lack of leadership are causing our country great harm.
Jenna ... I assume your question is an honest one ... What can you do? The answer is that now is the time to educate yourself about the policies of MrO. By understanding the good and bad (mostly bad) then you'll be prepared when you get to vote.
Jenna ... As a result of MrO's policies more people are unemployed, more are on assistance, and the very people MrO promised to help are FAR worse off than when MrO came into office.
Look, I know he's doing bad things And I know I need to to educate myself before the next election because I'll be able to vote. But as of right now, there is NOTHING I can do about Obama being my president. And even when I can vote, my vote does...
Nothing. My vote doesn't matter. The electoral votes matter.
Think, his policies have not decreased jobs... That started in the previous presidents term with all the deregulation and welfare given to the wealthy who were supposed to create jobs n not send them aboard.
I voted yes to the poll about the occasional silly polls.
This, to me, is one.
Of course I don't.
Where is my hope and change? Answer: it was a lie to get elected....you might get an Obamaphone as a consolation prize though.........
Everyone who said yes is a racist. The majority of the world hates him, but stupid Americans still support him. Media-puppets.
The question is why would they say "yes?" If it is solely because he is half black the I would tend to agree with you. If not for the racist reason then how can anyone regardless of color say that they approve of this amateur's job performance?
Obama should be tried for treason.
I think the fact that only 81% of democrats voted yes was off. Whether that be because he hasn't gone far enough or that he isn't doing good at all I thought would be closer to 100.
Make opinions based on one's self and not a title. Ie. Liberal or socialist. Being superjudgementAl is wrong. There is too much politics in politics. Not obama's fault.
I reserve the right to pass judgement on this or any other president. It appears based on the quantitative gathered here that regardless of how Obama governs the brainwashed kool aid drinkers are going to vote for him favorably. Pathetic.
I liked his views at first, but he can't do anything. He is a crappy president.
He can't do anything because of the tea party who have voted against the middle class in every venue set before them. Not to mention against women and children and the elderly
I find it funny that the only group with a majority of approval is the democrat group. Meaning the the President's approval is largely based on party and not by all citizens as it should be.
That's probably with nearly every single president though. And probably has been that way for a long time I would imagine.
Kelan ... Ya gotta do what ya gotta do to live with yourself for making such a bad decision.
MrO is far worse than most - even Mr Bush!
GWBush? Ha! He took the economy from being in excess to being trillions in debt and it got blamed on the black guy...Brilliant!
Have you heard about the new legislation to abolish presidential term limits?? Does anyone have info on that?? Please share!
The republican boogeyman is fictional I agree BUT the boogeyman was constructed by the lies repeated over and over of Obama and his minions.
there is a handful of congressmen that run this through as a token bill. It has been shoot down several times
atleast that what I read on the internet so it must be true
A token bill? Why would anyone propose something so stupid?
This requires more research....
captain - Try the snopes article. It shows the same guy (a Dem.) has introduced the same bill every 2 years since 1997, regardless of who was President. Also, various others have proposed it since 1991. No proposal was brought to a vote.
Note that some Dems. have proposed during a Repub. Presidency; some Repubs. during Dem. Presidency.
Susan ... I'm not sure that it matters that much who has introduced the legislation.
I don't like the idea. Do you?
No, but i am sure if he was up for re-election today it would be another landslide win for him. Go figure.
He only won because he ran against Romney. Anyone would have beat Romney.
Yes, unfortunately the sheople would elect him again to be in vogue and to protect their government entitlements. Go figure.
He didn't run against Romney. Romney would have beat him easily in a fair contest. He ran against a republican boogeyman of his own creation, and frightened his supporters with messages like "they're gonna put you all back in chains."
Ummm... That was dumb ass Joe Biden that said that.
And who was it that picked crazy uncle Joe to be one heartbeat from the Oval Office? This goes to the inability of MrO to make a good decision!
little do most liberals that still approve of Obama know that the NSA is a part of the DoD an therefore answerable to the President...
Little do most conservatives know this was a program set up by bush and no matter who got elected in 08' and 12' this program was going to go forward with support from both parties.
Yes Abolitionist, but Obama was against these things as a Senator. What happened to him?
Yes Abo... What happened? And if it were set up by Bush why hasn't Obama moved to change it? What's that you admit? Oh that Obama is more guilty of the infractions of the NSA because he allowed it to continue through TWO terms? Yes EVERYTHING IN THE
PRESENT IS O's responsibility and he owns it lock, stock and Barrel. You can't credibly blame GWB anymore. O's "in charge" so EVERYTHING that happens on his watch is HIS fault. Did you get your 2 BILLION $ Obama phone Abo? Fraud, corruption and waste
He may be a better president than Bush, but my dog would make a better president than Bush, and probably Obama too.
He's turned out to be Bush on Steroids. Aside from the Big Brother/Government mentality, he's embarrassed our nation on the world's stage. Spent more money than we could afford and let Benny B print funny money like he's printing magazines.
O makes Bush look like a genius! At least Bush had experience running a state. O had no experience even running a business. His incompetence is more apparent everyday. Isn't that right Van Jones?
Hey, anti-Obama crew! Be thankful. He has given your collective heart a lot of exercise. Obama rocks!
Lame.... Like Obama!
piso you just like obama because you and him were in rev wrights down low club together.
Piso ... Yep and the jokes on you as you thought there'd be something there for you in O'DoesntCare! At least conservatives' hearts are getting exercise! Leftists are screwed as they've been comatose as MrO's been ruining the nation! Psych!!!
There's no point in these polls because there are so many crazy right-wing people on here.
We are automatically crazy and radical if we Disapprove of the president?
And there's liberals who sit here and comment on things like this all day instead of getting a job
Nick fails to realize how many right wingers are on unemployment, social security, and food stamps. Ah, ignorance is bliss
How do you know Abo? Where are your statistics? Oh, that's right, you're just pulling that out of your ass. It is common knowledge that those on welfare etc, are usually dems that will vote to perpetuate their handouts. Where's my Obamamaphone?!?
If you don't approve of Obama why did you reelect them
Because the other choice was Mitt Romney
Romney and Obama aren't that different
I had 4 years of Mitt Romney. Trust me, there's a difference.
That's a serious accusation to make against me.
I didn't vote for him.
My banner slogan was "Hope We Change"
I didn't vote for him either time.
BlueSkies ... we can compete against the illegals, felons and dead who all voted for MrO. The courts have now shown that MrO should not have been on the ballot in Indiana. He's a fraud.
Are all you dems really telling the truth or just trying to save face?
Maybe saving face, a lot of them don't want to admit he's a moderate republican that is to the right of Nixon on healthcare and to the right of Nixon on guaranteeing income. Obama is an oligarch like Reagan, Bush, and Clinton.
Abolition: Nixon was one of the most liberal presidents in US history.
Yes, we are telling the truth. We like him.
Do you also like root canal piso?
Got a couple days ago
(PAUL JOSEPH WATSON) -- As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass
events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.
I read that and see dead Russians.
This is nuts. Globalization is not in the best interests of our country!
And now he's backing away from his sole significant legislative accomplishment... Employer healthcare mandate got pushed back by a year. So the Dems don't get crushed in the midterms after everyone's health care is cancelled.
The top comment is this poll is a perfect illustration why the right can't win elections. Instead of criticizing Obama on reality and the facts of how his presidency hasn't been great, they make up glen beck bullsht with no basis in reality.
The top commenter was making a general statement. I think it's dead on.
What's dead on is Obama is a oligarch the same way bush, Reagan and Clinton was. So we can debate facts or GOP can embrace this boogey man image that no one can relate too cause it has no basis in reality. The latter loses elections, the former helps
From Screwu:"And now he's backing away from his sole significant legislative accomplishment... Employer healthcare mandate got pushed back by a year. So the Dems don't get crushed in the midterms after everyone's health care is cancelled. "
Benghazi, lack of transparency, can't live up to simple campaign promises, embarrasses us around the world when he speaks, corruption, waste like the Obamaphone program, cash for clunkers and this healthcare lie he managed to get passed in cong..etc
It's not about elections stupid. It's about effectively governing our country and maintaining a strong perception throughout the world. O has failed on both fronts.
I'm trying to do some math here... Because it seems like republicans overwhelmingly say ew... But without numbers of voters in each category this seems hard to figure out!
Tap the pie charts.
Disregard... Guess that went away.
Yah, I miss that.
There are legitimate and non-legitimate reasons to not support the president, however, in light of recent events it is hard to support such a president.
He'a not perfect but I like him so far. He's not the worst president we've ever had and he's not the best either. Everyone needs to chill with the Hitler references too.
He is the worst. Even Jimmy Carter looks good by comparison.
He is absolutely inept on foreign policy. We are a weak country with him as Commander in Chief.
His domestic policy is contrary to what made ( past tense ) this country great. He spits in
The face of what Americans want. Unfortunately too many Americans don't realize what he is up to.
Moon fire, finally some sanity on here! Please disregard the two comments before mine.
I MISSED THE OBAMA POLL!
It's hard to make a case that Obama has done a "good job"!!! I feel that he is the worst president since...well...our last president.
"Fox News will smiteth thee who say Obama does a good job" - Romney 6:19
In Colorado, it's 4:20
Screwu is a typical conservative, can't argue with facts so he ignores alternative viewpoints... lol ignore me, pansy, it still don't change the fact you're a moron.
Abolitionist, why so angry? Grab a few bumper stickers touting liberal ideas, and stick them on your car. You'll feel better. Lol
Why are you reverting to personal attacks? That does not make you look like the winner of the argument. Do better bro
Where are YOUR FACTS ABO ? Or as usual all you can do is call people names (which means nothing)?
Party loyalists should stop commenting. We already know what your going to say. God forbid you should start thinking for yourselves and realize that your party is deceiving you. STOP THE PARTY LOYALTY. It's killing our country.
This guy is a libertarian ex-Repub that got tired of the same old crap and I agree with you!
Lol. Every time this poll pops up, I prepare for the ignorant comments.
I do the same every time the POTUS or FLOTUS speaks, you know Mrs. O just said she is in prison, right? After POTUS is trying to tell Africa coal is good for them! My god what hypocrites!
Those of you that voted for Obama, we forgive you.
But learn that some people are phenomenal judges of character. When you were fooled by the facade, and couldn't understand why others weren't similarly mesmerized... Now you know why.
It's easy to claim that we just got it right on accident, but no. We got it right because we were capable of seeing right through the facade.
Then why you nominate John McCain/Palin and Romney as your presidential candidate? If you were so good at seeing through facades, why did the Conservative party nominate a Massachusetts moderate for president?
How did they get fooled twice?
Abolitionist, as a conservative, I wish I could give you an intelligent answer. Why we continue to put up mediocre candidates is beyond me.
If politics were sports, I would argue the fix was in.
We keep taking a dive.
I didn't say anything about the Conservative party, I said "we", meaning those of us that we're able to accurately judge 0bama's character before he ever took office.
Neither Romney nor McCain would have been nearly as disastrous, by the way.
If this is hard for you to believe, take into consideration the fact that's I'm a better character judge than you are.
As indicated by the fact that I correctly judged his character 4 years ago, while you needed to wait and see what he did before you could do so.
The Republican Party has been trying to capture independent votes by moving ideologically towards the center. Doing this, they lost much of their base. When the TEA party showed up, with real conservative values, they won a huge victory in 2010.
Hilary is never going to demagogue, attack and use dirty tricks like Obama does, and if the Dems put her up she will lose.
You guys seem to think the problem with the GOP is that it isn't conservative enough. That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Please stop watching Fox News and Glenn beck. It's false propaganda and you believe it. I pity you guys.
if you're suggesting it's too conservative, then the question is too conservative for what? Of course it's too conservative for the average lybril. But in terms of getting the conservatives out to vote, it is not conservative enough.
Key evidence for this is the fact that democrats recommend the GOP become less conservative in order to get more votes.
