If Washington’s tone has changed, this is why

Here’s what President Obama’s job-approval numbers look like, from Sept. 1 to today, as compiled from major polls by RealClearPolitics:

rcpaverage

—————————–

It’s also interesting to look at the polls individually. Here’s a list of every major survey conducted in the month of January on the question of job approval. As you’ll notice, one of the numbers is not like the others:

rcppolls

Every poll but one reports an eight-to-12-point differential between job approval and disapproval. I won’t mention the identity of the outlier.

And finally, we have this, which helps to explain why, despite passionate promises to the contrary, the Republicans will not be pushing the government into default or shutting down the government anytime soon:

And we can, if you wish, break it down by party:

“Do you approve or disapprove of the way the Republicans in Congress are handling their job?”
CBS/NYT: Approve 19%, disapprove 73%
ABC/WashPo: Approve 24%, disapprove 71%
Pew Research: Approve 25%, disapprove 67%

I hardly think those numbers disprove my thesis, but make of them what you will.

Jay, the chart I want to see overlaid on top of Obama’s approval rating is the rate of weapon and ammunition sales…

Did you see the recent Onion headline that said something to the effect of “62 Year Old With Gun Only Thing Standing Between American People and Full Scale Government Takeover?”

It’s sad that plenty of decent folks are trapped in quickly-shrinking alternative realities built by the house-of-cards “logic,” rhetoric, and paranoia coming from the Network That Shall Not Be Named.

While the mainstream press routinely reports that President Obama is riding high and that Republicans are reeling, Gallup tells a rather different story about the popularity of our newly reelected president. Across Gallup’s entire history of presidential job-approval polling — dating back to 1945 — every president but one has had a higher job-approval rating in the January following his reelection than Obama has. No president has had a lower rating than Obama’s.

Gallup shows Obama’s average approval rating so far this January as being just 52 percent. President George W. Bush’s average approval rating in January 2005, immediately following his reelection, was also 52 percent. This can hardly be a source of satisfaction for Obama, who ran against Bush not once but twice — without Bush’s being on the ticket either time.

But it gets worse. President Clinton beat Obama by 8 percentage points, as Clinton’s average approval rating in January 1997 (immediately following his reelection) was 60 percent. President Reagan beat Obama by 11 points, as his average approval rating in January 1985 was 63 percent. President Nixon beat Obama by 7 points, as his average approval rating in January 1973 was 59 percent. President Eisenhower beat Obama by 21 points, as his average approval rating in January 1957 was 73 percent. And President Truman — who barely beat Thomas Dewey— beat Obama by 17 points, as Truman’s average approval rating in January 1949 was 69 percent.

So, out of the seven postwar presidents who won reelection — a test that only Presidents Johnson, Carter, and George H. W. Bush failed (as President Kennedy was killed in office and President Ford was never elected in the first place) — Obama is currently tied for last place in popularity. Moreover, Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, and Clinton not only all had higher approval ratings at this stage of their presidencies than Obama does, but their approval ratings dwarfed Obama’s — beating his by an average of 13 points.

By historical standards, Obama can hardly be viewed as entering his second term as a strong, popular, and well-respected president.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

They want to give them a path to legal citizenship for those that have been here for years and hold jobs.
But they also want to crack down on the companies and people hiring undocumented workers.
So, if they all get fired and can’t get work, how do they continue to support themselves and their families until they get documented from their path to citizenship.

The most interesting part of the poll chart is the startling difference between Fox News’ numbers and the rest of the polls.

Obama’s numbers arguably SHOULD be better than they are – just off re-election and a State of the Union address. But he is in the enviable position of not having to care what his poll numbers are.

I think Obama has precious little political capital (even while Congress has virtually zero) and he will need to choose his battles carefully.

No party can fight against the free money offered by government entitlements and people are more than willing to give up freedom in return for a free ride. When people find out they can sit and do nothing and still get what they need, why work? Way more people than you think are catching onto this and why not? Even the Con’s are starting to understand there is no reason to work, especially the older ones.

But the opinion “segment” of fox is what whips up the ridiculous viewpoints that the “real” journalists can then report on. Hannity, Doucey et al get into a frenzy saying that Obama is a socialist. They say it so much and have such a following that then the journalists say “well this is a story, we have to investigate!” So they go on air saying “there is a growing movement of people [thanks to our network's talking heads] who believe Obama’s policies are socialist. Let’s investigate that claim — giving CREDENCE to the claim that Obama’s a socialist.” And it works as “journalism” because in a postmodern age “socialist” can mean anything you want it to mean!

Incredible….the republicans problem is simple, people don’t like your policies – period! Paul ryan is a wuss! Coming out with pure fantasyland statements about hillary would’ve fixed the economy, who believes that kind of krap and what of the person spouting it?

Patriot, if I understand your question correctly, LV means a poll of likely voters, RV means a poll of registered voters and A means a poll of all adults.

Uh Huh....Obama, Mr. Popularity

From members of the party of “personal responsibility”-

“Its not our fault nobody likes us! Its the media’s fault for exposing only our lies! Its Obama’s fault for being too likeable! Its the people’s fault for being too stupid to recognize our brilliance!It has absolutely NOTHING to do with our history of failure, our infantile party-before-country behavior, and blind adherence to discredited dogma! Its not fair! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
