Obama's approval rating

56 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s handling of his job as president, compared to 41 percent who disapprove.

I'm wondering who those 41% that disapprove of Obama's presidency, and the reasons why?

@cicerone imposter,
I think it is pretty obvious the reasons people dislike Obama.

- Obamacare
- Immigration amnesty
- Push for gun control
- Support for same sex marriage
- Prosecution of people expressing religious liberty
- Weakness in foreign policy (e.g. the red line in Syria and inaction in the Crimea)

I am sure there is more... but I just want to point out that we have a politically divided country. The 41% is actually surprisingly low.

1. He wanted to cut Social Security through most of his presidency. He only changed his mind recently.
2. His military adventures rival those of GW Bush. Those two guys radicalized more Muslims than anybody in history.
3. I don't approve of the TPP trade bill.

I have other criticisms to make, but I am too tired to get my thoughts straight just now.

@cicerone imposter,
Did Everyone in the US submit to this poll?
Nope - You read/heard it somewhere, and accepted it as fact.

Go to trough, and drink.

@mark noble,
The same could be said about any poll taken at any time for any reason. The last few polls taken from different pollsters have had the same results.

Absolutely! So it's a false/misleading piece of donkey-bollux awarded you by your 'controlled' media...?

@cicerone imposter,
Intuition.

Show my the 330 million US signitaries in your poll - I'll reconsider my stance.

You know how uncertain-mindsets attach themselves to popular (majority) consensus...?
Polls direct them there.

Go watch my 'This is a frikkin madhouse' link.
It's all explained.

I suspect at least 50% of that group disapprove of his presidency because he's black. Nothing more complicated than that.

@mark noble,
You ask for the impossible, then say you'll reconsider if I produce it. You know where you can put your demand.

@cicerone imposter,
Not sure where you got your 56% from.

I saw 48%% vs 41% just this evening. This is an improvement for him.

Given that our choice for the next president is between Trump and Clinton, I'm not surprised that he's looking better to some.

Calumny is rarely complicated. Rarely true, rarely complicated.

It's a poll. These things are done so many times daily that they have become worthless. The Trump/Clinton polls change almost every half hour!

Add to that, that polls are random samplings and many who are asked:

a)decline to participate
b)give false responses

again, polls mean gobloshidy.

Need more proof of the failure of polls? Take a look over across the ocean at the United Kingdom and the Brexit vote, where the polls kept showing that they'd be remaining in the Euro-Union.

If you place your money in polls, you'll be on your way to the poorhouse in record time.


As to those who disapprove of President Obama, the reasons are many and vary from person to person.

Additionally, was the polling done only of Democrats or were Republicans and those of other parties included as well? If people other than Democrats were included, I would venture to say you know why there is a disapproval level.
