“LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD” IN A WORLD OF HURT … 

Even before the near-collapse of a U.S.-backed regime in Iraq forced the administration of Barack Obama into all sorts of ridiculous foreign policy contortions – the “leader of the free world” had lost the support of his people.

According to a new NBC/ Wall Street Journal poll, only 37 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s handling of U.S. foreign policy – an all-time low in the survey.  Conversely, 57 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s handling of foreign policy – an all-time high.

Ouch …

By a 44-30 percent margin, Americans also disapprove of Obama’s controversial prisoner exchange with the Taliban – a raw deal that resulted in several ranking terrorist leaders being returned to the wild (all so a former deserter could be “rescued”).

Overall, Obama’s approval rating is 41 percent – which is tied for an all-time low in this survey.  Meanwhile a whopping 54 percent say he is “unable to lead the country and get the job done.”

“This is a bad poll for President Obama, and not a good poll for anybody else,” GOP pollster Bill McInturff said, noting that Republicans also fared poorly in the survey.

The NBC/ Wall Street Journal poll surveyed 1,000 adults nationwide between June 11-15.  Its margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percent.

Like he cares about his poll numbers.
He’s going to do what he wants to further the grand Democratic agenda.

Not necessarily the Democratic agendas, (potus) and the cockroaches who tell him what to do are only using them to steamroll their plans.

Higher than I expected. I have met few that, actually, approve of him. Personally, I have him lower than whale chit.

If you think those numbers are bad, check out the numbers for Congressional Republicans in this poll.
25% approval rating for the GOP
22% approval rating for the Tea Party

Those numbers are meaningless from the perspective of the two major parties (and the TP as well, I suppose). Our idiotic electorate gripes and moans about aggregated politicians (parties, Congress, etc.), yet routinely sends the incumbents back at rates above 90%. Stoooooopid people.

Approval ratings from the poll:

The Democratic Party …………………………………. 38
Barack Obama …………………………………………… 41
Joe Biden …………………………………………………. 32
The Republican Party…………………………………… 29
The Tea Party Movement …………………………….. 22

Exactly. His numbers are bad and by all accounts he shouldn’t have won the last election, yet, he did. His numbers are higher than anyone else’s in Washington. Polls, unless it’s from Nate Silver, they are useless.

This won’t phase him. Reality is a stressor only for those in touch with it.

You’re right, as long as he’s (sorta) black it will be completely racist to try and slow his roll.

Most politicians try to deal with reality, but its hard from Washington and getting everything third hand. Is the GOP in touch with their 25% approval rating?

The only group with consistently lower approval ratings than Obama are the potential candidates for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Hey now, be nice.

The only pole numbers I’m interested in are ones over 6 but under 10, as I’m still breaking that area in.
