RECORD LOW FAVORABILITY, EMPATHY RATINGS … 

By FITSNEWS || U.S. president Barack Obama received career low marks in favorability and empathy according to a new ABC News/ Washington Post poll – not a good sign for Democratic candidates as America heads to the polls on Tuesday.

According to the survey, only 44 percent of voters view Obama favorably – a record low for this poll.  Meanwhile half of all U.S. adults – and 53 percent of registered voters – view him unfavorably.  Those are potentially devastating numbers for Democratic candidates – as is the record-low 46 percent of Americans who believe Obama understands the problems they face (a.k.a. the “empathy” question).

Among likely voters that number drops to 44 percent …

Yeah … guess some people are finally realizing Obama isn’t the middle class hero he made himself out to be.

Astoundingly, 85 percent of black Americans still approve of the job Obama is doing … something we addressed last month in this post.  However that’s down nine points from January of this year – suggesting a flagging zeal among black voters that could compound Democratic electoral problems.

The ABC News/ Washington Post poll surveyed 1,204 adults between October 23-26.  The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.

It’s tough to be an intelligent black person. You’re considered a traitor to your race if you don’t support an incompetent black person.

Yeah, not to mention having to live around white people.

So you equate intellect with socioeconomics? How silly of you.

What can I say? I hate white people. Smart ones, *and* stupid ones. Rich ones *and* poor ones.

I make exception for liberal white folks, though… they “know their place,” if you get my drift.

You would, they’re there to preserve the plantation mentality. Wonderful people, the liberals, if you like your urban areas full of the shuck and jive routine.

The eastern world it tis explodin’,
Violence flarin’, bullets loadin’,
You’re old enough to kill but not for votin’,
You don’t believe in war, but what’s that gun you’re totin’,
And even the Jordan river has bodies floatin’,
But you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
Ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of an election.

What a great night Tuesday night will be for America. After the election on Tuesday night , since Obama was appointed dictator by the uninformed welfare leeches and perverts , the Republican Party has decimated the Democrat Party:

will have picked up 8-10 senate seats and control
will have picked up 70-75 house seats and control
will control a majority of governorships
will have picked up over 1400 seats in state races and continue to control BOTH the senate and house legislatures in a majority of states for the first time since the Civil War

Obama has destroyed the Democrat Party. You won’t hear it from the MSM.

“What a great night Tuesday night will be for America.”

Sorry Jim. I’m afraid the political kool-aid’s effect on you is now irreversible. Seriously, any Tom, Dick, or Harry that gets excited about his/her party’s election results is blinder than a bat. (notwithstanding party affiliation)

Do you think these “8-10 senate seats,” “70-75 house seats,” “majority of governorships,” and “1400 seats in state races” will actually make your life better? Do you think these politician’s give “two left nuts” about you? Do you discount the fact that you need to work for yourself to protect your own interests–that these self-glorified pompous, arrogant politicians are only interested in furthering their own wallets and egos?

I seriously fear for our country when I see so many ignorant fools still placing so much value and belief in such a government. This government is bloated with corruption. This corruption and this government are growing at unprecedented rates.

Yet—-you say, “[w]hat a great night Tuesday night will be for America.”

Wake up!!! Quit looking at the “R” or “D” after their name! Quit looking at the fancy suits, pretty white teeth, and always perfect haircuts. Quit looking at the fake hard-hats at construction sites. Quit looking at the fake acts of kissing babies and looks of “concern.” They don’t care about you. They don’t.

Yet—-you say, “[w]hat a great night Tuesday night will be for America.”

It’s like getting excited over the Bloods making your neighborhood their territory after driving the Crips out.

So the Republicans are Bloods and the Democrats Crips or is it the other way around?

The Republicans aren’t as principled as gang members, they eat their own… .with tea.

I take it you haven’t noticed Democrats throwing Obama under the bus lately to save their own asses. It happens in the sixth year be they an R or D.

Politicians – what did you think, that they’re altruistic…. like the libertarians?

I believe the other idiots said the same thing in 06, the 6 year itch for Bush, you remember when the gop went from control of house and senate, to being “decimated” same thing happens every 6 years on a two term president but please, my apologies for bringing facts to your delusion.

Color of skin doesn’t enter in to it. An incompetent president knows no color line. Obama proves that liberal policy and redistribution of wealth.. As well as fouling up a health care system beyond belief — all this and more
MAKES YOU A LOUSY PRESIDENT

ANY DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN WHO PULLED THIS SAME INEPT CRAP
WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED ASAP
NIXON DID FAR LESS & he resigned
