BOs approval rating a new low?

Obama's job approval ratings from the three latest polls:

NBC News: 51 percent
Gallup: 52 percent
Rasmussen: 49 percent

According to the Real Clear Politics two-week average: 52.0 approve, 41.4 disapprove.

Just seven months into his presidency and Americans are already getting tired of him. You have to admit, that takes talent.

This emperor has no clothes

  • "It's better than Bush's final approval rating of 22 % "

    It took Bush 8 years to achieve that. Everyone says "Give Obama time". At this rate, he will reach 22% within another 6 months. LOL

  • So he's hovering in the 50's which is about where President Bush was at this time in his presidency (then 9/11 happened and his approval rating skyrocketed).

    Looking for Clinton stats.

  • Apparently Clinton and Reagan both had some of the lowest numbers of the first year...

    (I purposely chose Gallup, since libs don't like Rasmussen--when it's not in their favor! LOL)


    And Regan started off "rough" because of Jimmy Carter, who exited with a 34% approval rating after FOUR years tying wiht GW Bush after EIGHT years!  Obama will EASIY replace those numbers in his FIRST YEAR if he continues as he has been! LOL
