CNN poll: Obama drops 10 points in 100 days

posted at 12:15 pm on August 6, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

It appears that the second 100 days of the Obama presidency didn’t go as smoothly as the first 100 days.  CNN’s new polling corroborates the remarkable decline in Barack Obama’s job approval numbers, although CNN apparently uses their own scale.  They show Obama with a 56% approval rating, but have to use the least predictive model to get it:

As President Barack Obama approaches 200 days in the White House, a new national poll suggests his approval rating has dropped seven points since the 100-day mark in April. The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Thursday morning also indicates that, while just one in five Americans say that the current economic conditions are good, the number who feel the economy is in very poor shape is dropping.

Fifty-six percent of those questioned in the poll approve of how Obama’s handling his duties as president. Four in 10 disapprove. The 56 percent approval is down five points from June, and represents a drop of seven points from the president’s showing in late April. The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation figures are in line with numbers from most other national polls out the past few weeks.

“Since April, Obama’s rating has stayed steady among white women, but he has dropped 14 points among white men. A majority of white men supported him at the Hundred Day mark, but now most white men disapprove of how he is handling his job,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “Obama has also slipped among non-whites, but he still gets support from over 70 percent of that group.”

CNN did not publish the partisan composition of its sample, but perhaps it doesn’t need to do so.  Instead of using a normal predictive model of likely voters (Rasmussen) or even registered voters, CNN opted for “American adults,” the least predictive model — and the one most likely to benefit Democrats.  Not only did they do that, but their disclaimer at the top directly relates to the ethnic demographics that CNN emphasizes in their report:

Interviews with 1,136 adult Americans, including an oversample of African-Americans, conducted by telephone by Opinion Research Corporation on July 31-August 3, 2009. The margin of sampling error for results based on the total sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Did they correct for that oversample?  Did they weight the responses?  CNN’s polling data doesn’t explain at all, which leads one to the conclusion that they kept the oversample in the final data.  Given CNN’s conclusions in the polling, it seems likely that a properly-balanced poll would result in lower approval numbers for Obama.

Nor is that the only strange thing about this poll.  One of the questions asked, “How do you personally feel about Barack Obama being president?”, has the following options for response: Thrilled, Happy, Don’t Care, Unhappy, Depressed, No Opinion.  Depressed?  CNN offers two kinds of responses for happy, one for unhappy, and one that asks people to diagnose themselves with a clinical disease.

Even with the friendly sample, 65% of respondents think Obama has tried to take on too much, too fast.  Despite CNN’s spin, the difference of people who think the economy is poor was a single percentage point — 79% now, 80% in April.  Optimism declined by three points, with April’s poll showing that 61% expected a better economy a year later, compared to 58% now.

Friendly samples can’t hide the political problems Obama has caused himself with free-spending policies, statist demands on the economy, and a lack of any real result from his first six months in office.

Not surprising. He won a large majority of the high school dropout demographic. No doubt he also did fairly well with the demographic including those who sat in the back of the classroom, rolled their eyes and constantly asked, “When are we going to need to know this?” These groups that so strongly want him to take care of them are not likely to be reading anything (unless it concerns ‘John & Kate’ or American Idol). Ignorant masses are his gold mine.

Nor is that the only strange thing about this poll. One of the questions asked, “How do you personally feel about Barack Obama being president?”, has the following options for response: Thrilled, Happy, Don’t Care, Unhappy, Depressed, No Opinion.

Let’s review:
Thrilled = very positive
Happy = positive
Don’t care = neutral
Unhappy = negative
Depressed = need medical attention
No opinion = neutral

How exactly is ‘don’t care’ different from ‘no opinion’? I guess it makes a difference in that CNN can add the ‘don’t care’ to the positive column, in order to get Barry above 50%, because I guarantee that he is in the 40′s now.

I’m just wondering how that phone call went down, in determining the skin color of the person interviewed.

“Hi, are you a brutha or a sista?”

“Hey, you sound black, are you?”

“Hello, do you know the words to “What’s Going On?”

Or maybe CNN has two sets of phone books, one for ebony, one for ivory. Racists.

by using campaign tactics as president, it is my contention that he is hurting himself more than any of his opponents could possibly do, this “organizing for america” outfit and his latest email to rally supporters to counter protest will only plunge further down his approval numbers, those “independants” who thought he was going to be as classy as bush and govern as a “centrist” have woken up to the reality of having a “community organizer” in charge of the executive branch (as well as the legislative, and judicial to a somewhat lesser degree).

Friendly samples can’t hide the political problems Obama has caused himself with free-spending policies, statist demands on the economy, and a lack of any real result from his first six months in office.

They also can’t hide the fact that The Precedent is truly nasty, thin-skinned jerk who acts more like a petulant 7 year old than a normal adult, or the fact that his desire is clearly to push this nation to the brink of civil war, or the fact that he is the most brazen liar ever to occupy the White House, or the fact that he is as dumb as a box of rocks, or …

There’s far too much about The Precedent for anyone to be able to hide and almost nothing decent the moron has ever done, or even tried to do. The hate of America that exudes from The Precedent is stinking up the nation and, while his supporters can pretend that he’s not farting in the elevator, they can’t sell that to anyone.

During the Bush years, the Left (including Obama) spent so much time exaggerating the power that an American President has–trying to convince America that with the Bush presidency, Hitler’s Germany had returned–that they themselves started believing that American Presidents were all powerful. Wasn’t true with Bush, and it’s more clear now that it’s not true with Obama either.

The Washington junta is running a con that has gone bust and they have no way of getting away from it. Look for them to sink as low as is humanly possible in order to force this con to the end. Think of Saddam Hussein intenttionally dumping 40,000,000 barrels of oil into the gulf and lighting just about every single oil well in Kuwait on fire – all as he was being allowed to retreat in one of the most humiliating defeats in all of human history … that’s what we have to look forward to from The Precedent and the Washington junta.

There is no way that they can reverse this trend. The idiot in the WH is going to gown down as a bigger failure than Carter and he will not be able to take it.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving narcisscist

BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II, aka BARRY SOETORO:
WORSE PRESIDENT EVER

I think he will meltdown soon too.
The racism stuff isn’t working so now they are on community organizing.
That won’t work either. Obama is not personally strong. He will fold.

Obama has created or saved hundreds of approval points.

I agree and wonder what the coming days will be like. Is he going to live in denial over his popularity and what does that mean for us?

Stockades and chains. We’ll pay for this. We shall be victorious.

The important statistic, in the event of civil war, is which side starts the killing spree. They are the bad guys.

I’d caution everyone about getting too excited about a meltdown. I’m fully expecting him to be able to use his online army to get poll numbers stable enough to ram something through in September. This is no time to coast.

Since April, Obama’s rating has stayed steady among white women, but he has dropped 14 points among white men.
