It’s far too late for them to do anything about it, but young Americans are finally realizing the extent to which U.S. President Barack Obama is full of sh*t.

Obama’s standing among Americans under 30 years of age plunged by 17 points from May to June – part of a broad decline in support for the scandal-scarred leader of what used to be the free world. According to a new CNN/ ORC International survey, Obama’s approval rating dropped by a whopping eight percentage points from last month – falling from 53 to 45 percent. Meanwhile his disapproval rating climbed nine points – from 45 to 54 percent.

Among independents, Obama’s approval rating plunged from 47 to 37 percent – while his disapproval rating spiked from 49 to 61 percent.

That’s one of the sharpest public opinion shifts in Obama’s presidency – and the first time since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have disapproved of his job performance. Also, for the first time ever Obama’s trustworthy rating dipped below 50 percent.

“The drop in Obama’s support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition,” CNN’s top pollster Keating Holland noted.

In 2008 Obama blistered “Republican” presidential nominee John McCain among young voters by an astounding 68-30 percent margin.

What’s driving this decline?

“It is clear that revelations about NSA surveillance programs have damaged Obama’s standing with the public, although older controversies like the IRS matter may have begun to take their toll as well,” Holland said.

Hmmm … no wonder the Obama administration chose not to reveal the IRS scandal when it first learned last summer that the agency was targeting limited government groups.

Anyway, like we said … any broad public recognition of Obama’s true nature is too little, too late. Also, it’s not like so-called “Republicans” in Washington, D.C. are offering much in the way of an alternative.

I could care less about these faux scandals. Issa is a clown and the guy can’t help overreaching. I am, however, one those folks that’s lost confidence in Obama. He has no agenda. He has no balls.

Oh, but I congratulate Jay on throwing out the same, tired ass teleprompter inanity. Way to keep it real, bro. Real dumb.

Please clarify, you “could care less” or you “couldn’t care less”? The former is a grammatical error that caught on.

Can you now explain to us how we can all get real? Your legal scholarship on the Martin case was riveting. I especially liked the part where you warned all the white folks to hunker down and prepare for the black mobs. I can only guess what your thoughts on America “getting real” will do for us dumbasses.

Obama polls are MEANINGLESS since he cheated and lied to get re-elected.

ALL that matters is: GETTING Bigger numbers in Congress, and taking the Senate. The more elected officials working against Obama, the better for America…

on the Prize,…and the prize is rejecting ALL-Obama…ESPECIALLY Obama-Care, and getting a responsible ENERGY policy…And getting Americans back to work…

Obama, through his astronomical gas prices and HealthCare Disaster is laying waste to American Families… He – and his misery campaign- MUST be stopped…

The NSA participates in a public worldwide effort to design and evaluate secure software called theCommon Criteria Evaluation. The NSA’s expertise led to the creation of at least one ultra secure operating system that has protected U.S. troops overseas, ensures that the complex systems found in commercial jetliners are reliable, and keeps vital infrastructure safe from attack. What exactly is the scandal there? Nothing much.

Immigration and NSA stories are topping the headlines currently. The real story, the one that all Americans can relate to, the IRS and Bengazi scandals, are being ignored by the media and the Administration hoping the voters will forget about them. Here’s a call to Congress to not let it happen!
