Obama Approval Rating Plummets

U.S. President Barack Obama’s approval ratings have fallen off a cliff … dragged down by the disastrous rollout of a hugely unpopular law.

According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll – released this week – 54 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s job performance compared to only 39 percent who approve. That’s a huge swing from the school’s October 1 poll, which showed Obama’s approval rating at 45 percent and his disapproval at 49 percent.

It’s also Obama’s worst poll performance ever, at least according to Quinnipiac’s data.

“President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to the level of former President George W. Bush at the same period of his Presidency,” Quinnipiac pollster Tim Malloy said. “Any Democrat with an 11-point approval deficit among women is in trouble. And any elected official with an 8-point trust deficit is in serious trouble.”


Driving Obama’s decline? Widespread disapproval of Obamacare – his socialized medicine law. According to the poll, only 39 percent approve of the new law compared to 55 percent who disapprove (numbers which mirror Obama’s ratings).

“President Obama’s misstatement, ‘If you like your health plan, you can keep it,’ left a bad taste with a lot of people. Nearly half of the voters, 46 percent, think he knowingly deceived them,” Malloy said.


That’s putting it kindly …

Quinnipiac surveyed 2,545 registered voters nationwide from November 6-11. Its poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.9 percentage points.

Those idiots at Quinnipac have been calling me for a week. I guess this is why.

I never have understood the point of a poll like this. Reminds me of elementary school. Do you like Suzie Jones? Circle yes or no.

The fickle mob didn’t get their free shit as easily as was promised, could anyone expect any other result of such a poll?

Thomas November 13, 2013 at 3:19 pm


If you think this poll is stupid, it is. The Clinton’s have been polling Hillary vs Christie since his reelection in NJ. MSNBC’s Matthews has been non-stop talking about the election results from two weeks ago. The 2016 elections are three years away and she is already fundraising and polling! LoL.

The ashen faces on Democrats tell the story that Obamacare will turn the masses away from them. The fact that adjudicated liar WJC is trying to help the current Democrat liar in the WH is revealing. LoL

The negativity of an incumbent President seen in these invasive polls are harbingers of how the 2014 mid term elections next year will pan out…

The Colonel November 14, 2013 at 7:36 am

Of course she’s fundraising – President Obama spent almost 3/4 of a billion dollars (the “official number” is $640,000,000) to win the preidency in 2008.

CL November 13, 2013 at 3:38 pm

While I am glad more and more of my fellow Americans are waking up to just how bad Obama is at his job, I do feel an element of schadenfreude towards those angry about losing their policies. Any sentient creature could have told you at the time that Obama was lying about being able to keep your policy and that millions of policies would get canceled. It is hard to work up too much sympathy for those crying about the cancellations at this point. As Mencken said, “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

elijah November 14, 2013 at 7:14 pm

the dumb Obama sheep got it hard all right the problem is so did every one else!!!! be careful what you vote for you mite get way more then you was wanting!!!! nothing comes free there is a price to pay for every thing!!!

Yoda November 14, 2013 at 10:21 pm

I knew he was lying all along, and now I am losing my policy. WHat the H could I do about it? As a republican who never backed obummer, I find it a little disappointing that you use the word schadenfreude. Really? You are happy that EVERYONE is losing their insurance and paying the price? For shame.

CL November 15, 2013 at 9:01 am

Not everyone, just those that voted for Obama or could not be bothered to show up and vote for Romney. As I said, my satisfaction relates to those who believed the President’s lies.

Heck, if he continues to fall in the polls he may become as unpopular as Congressional Republicans and the Tea-nuts.

tomstickler November 13, 2013 at 9:23 pm

The 7-11 November Gallup Poll says that Congress has a 9% approval rating — no breakout on Ds vs Rs vs TPs — so Obama is still ahead of the east end of Pennsylvania Ave.

idcydm November 14, 2013 at 9:54 am

The irony of using a 9% approval rating to make someone else look good is obviously lost on the faithful.

You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you can’t fool all the people all of the time. Abe knew what he was talking about.

And if you actually read the entire poll and go all the way to the bottom you’ll find out that while 46% do believe he deceived them – you’ll also find out that 47% do NOT believe that he knowingly deceived them . . . last time I checked that would mean that most people do NOT believe that he knowingly deceived them. Did I miss that somewhere in your article, FITS?

Sandy Burglar November 13, 2013 at 9:23 pm

That’s the same 47% of the dumbasses in this country that Romney was exactly right about…idiots who are too ignorant or too stupid to know they were being lied to and all they want is their “free” shit at somebody else’s expense. Must be part of the crowd you hang out with, Blues.

SCBlues November 14, 2013 at 7:43 am

Ahh – so you voted for the LOSER, Romney, huh? Losers attract losers – guess that’s why Romney got your vote, Sandy. And for the record, my insurance plan has not been cancelled – obviously President Obama did not lie to me. Suck on that for awhile, Loser.

And Sandy the Loser – when you are talking about all that free shit, do you mean like free emergency room care? Well, Loser, the crowd I hang out with are all fortunate enough to have good health care so we do not have to go to the emergency room for all that free shit – is that the free shit that you like, Loser? And might not want to bring up Romney when talking about Obamacare dimwit – it was modeled after Romneycare, Loser.

Amelia November 14, 2013 at 11:22 am

Yes, Lindsay seems to have her head in the right place for her future. Though I think that’s between her boyfriends legs. Here are some more deep thoughts from this brain trust. I’ll bet she was a runner up for Ms. South Carolina.

“Does it ever seem like conservatives were the cool kids back in high school, the tall, buff, good-looking, heterosexual ones who lettered in real varsity sports (football, basketball and baseball), drove great cars, dated the hottest girls, got good grades effortlessly, had the best clothes, threw the best parties and were looked up to by everybody?

Does it also seem like liberals were the short, overweight or underweight kids who didn’t play sports, never got invited to parties, played board games and never dated and are now bitter and trying to take it out on all of us?

Is that the way it seems to you? Scratch a conservative, and you’ll find a prom king; scratch a liberal, and you’ll find a kid who never had a date in high school!”

OK, who’s up for hiring Lindsay; outside of the porno or personal services industry, of course?

Summerwood Eh? November 14, 2013 at 4:13 pm

You’re correct, Lindsay, as right on cue several brain-dead, idiotic Obamazombies show up to trash you! Better yet, I’ll bet they’re part of the 47% who didn’t think Barry Soetoro lied to them and the country. Bunch of pathetic fools they are.

Mary November 14, 2013 at 3:03 pm

So Tea-nuts can dish it out, but can’t take. I guess I would expect Republican men to come to the defense of Lindsay. She is their type. Republican men do not like women smarter than they are, and those are sometimes hard to find.

Whats it matter at this point? Obama carefully worked this healthcare law to take hold AFTER his reelection. You think he cares about having low approval ratings after he is guaranteed another 4 years? No. If republicans don’t have a decent candidate in 2016 these approval ratings won’t matter again. It is sad but true. All of the things he said wouldn’t happen, have happened…and no one can do anything about it. All the while congress is exempt. Republican or democrat… this should disgust you.

Christopher Poulios November 14, 2013 at 10:53 pm

And he is still at what I would consider to be at a relatively high 39%? Looks like Mitt Romney’s 47% self-entitlement parasites was not that far off the mark after all.

Ezra November 15, 2013 at 1:18 am

What does it matter. Obamas little sheep will support and believe him no matter what happens. He’s been caught in so many lies but they still think nothing is his fault. He could tell them that 1 + 1 = 3 and they would just take his word for it

Jessie November 15, 2013 at 1:30 am

Could we actually start an intellectual debate using proper grammar and not reverting to name calling? Regardless if you’re a democrat or republican, a lack of correct spelling, sense of grammar, and calling someone a name who has a different opinion than you just shows illiteracy and a inability to cope when in defeat.

ObamaTrippin November 15, 2013 at 9:38 am

When are we going to mature as a country and focus our efforts to fix the problem? If we keep fighting about Republican/Democrat being the issue then the phonies in D.C. will keep us preoccupied fighting each other and NOT holding them accountable. Look, I don’t consider myself a Republican and I’m definitely NOT a Democrat, but I believe in fundamental rights of our citizens and that Big Brother has overstepped his bounds with us on many levels…for instance the patriot act, wire tapping laws, and for goodness sakes we all get a pat down at the airport now a days and it’s for our “own protection.” Come on people WAKE UP!

They argue on a stage and then go out and have dinner together and keep raking in the money, we continue to argue this fairytale of Left vs Right and they continue to use the media to pump us full of lies. Nothing in this world can be given to you by the government without the government going first and taking it from someone else. When government gets too big it will collapse and if Detroit is any indication of where this country is headed with the current party in office you can count me out!

I don’t pretend that it was ever any better when Bush was in office either, for all we know the same puppet master has been behind the scenes since the first Bush entered the white house.

Admit when the guy in power is full of crap and when the system as a whole is broken, are you really better off today than you were before Obama? Are we better off today than we were before Bush? Hell no to both of them, but we are significantly worse off after Obama than we have ever been in the history of this nation. He has shown complete incompetence and disregard for the opinions of his advisers, but even more he has shown a complete and utter disregard for the American people. I think the whole hierarchy of Hogs need to be slaughtered. It’s time this “Animal Farm” gets correct and it starts at the top.

My take is any sort of universal healthcare is going to raise the cost of everyones healthcare and they never should have alluded to the fact that “If you like your plan you keep it.” If that is true, then how are we going to “magically” pay for everyone else? Do you think insurance companies or the government is going to foot that bill? And if they do, how do you think they are going to offset those additional costs? Why you and I the tax payer or insurance buyer.

Any way you look at it the plan is a tax or a penalty, it’s just a matter of semantics. If you expect the government to cover the additional people it will be a tax to raise revenue to cover the gap. And if you expect the Insurance providers to cover the difference you can expect insurance costs to go up across the board in order to cover the additional people, most of which are “bad bets.”

In all honesty all Obama had to do was put in place a law that limited how much information an insurance company could get from us for insurance quotes and make it illegal for anyone to be refused insurance coverage. Then, what would happen is it would anonymize us all and then the insurance companies would be left to spread the additional costs amongst all of its insured on an annual basis. But, everyone would be covered and he would avoid the whole mandate thing and calling it a tax.

The insurance game would still be free market, but they would spread the losses amongst themselves and the winners would be the American people. Anything the government runs is full of waste and excess fat…a private company cuts fat to survive.
