Gallup: Obama disapproval in the 60s on the economy, budget deficit

posted at 2:21 pm on August 16, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

A little over two weeks ago, Gallup found that the most important issues on the minds of voters are the economy, jobs, and the federal budget deficit.  Today’s Gallup poll shows Obama more than twenty points underwater on all three issues, and above 60% disapproval on two of them:

Three months before the election, President Barack Obama gets good marks from Americans for his handling of terrorism, fair marks for education and foreign affairs, but poor marks on immigration and three big economic issues: the federal budget deficit, creating jobs, and the economy generally.

Historically speaking, this is bad news for Obama’s re-election efforts:

Obama’s ratings on the economy are significantly worse than all three prior successful presidential incumbents at this same point in their first term, according to the available Gallup trends. His 36% approval rating on the economy is well below George W. Bush’s rating in August 2004 (46%), Bill Clinton’s in August 1996 (54%), and Ronald Reagan’s in July 1984 (50%). Still, in terms of comparisons to presidents who lost, Obama’s economic rating is substantially better than that of George H.W. Bush in July 1992 (18%). Gallup did not measure Americans’ approval of Jimmy Carter on the economy in 1980.

Reagan was, however, at 48% on job creation at that time as well as 50% on the economy, and 52% overall in job approval rating.  Carter was at 37% overall and Bush 41 at 32% overall approval, the only two presidents since Ford to be under 50%.  Of all the predictive indicators, this one might worry Obama most, currently at 45% and dropping.

The low marks on the most vital issues at this time, though, show the difficulty for his campaign to run on his record, or even new ideas … if Obama had any.  His campaign hasn’t even yet articulated a second-term agenda except to continue the policies that have him at 36/60 on the economy and 30/64 on the federal budget. Even the Associated Press has given up pretending that today’s economic conditions are expected and cyclical.

Small wonder that the entire Obama/Biden strategy this week has been Seamus the Roof Riding Dog and a dog-whistle reference to slavery.  Meanwhile, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan continue to focus on jobs, the economy, and budget deficits — the most vulnerable place to hit the Obama/Biden ticket.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Vice President Joe Biden will be President Barack Obama’s running mate in the upcoming election, putting to rest any speculation about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stepping into the number two spot.

Carney was asked by Ed Henry of Fox News to “settle” the issue “once and for all” and say whether or not Biden will remain on the ticket.

“Yes and that was settled a long long time ago,” Carney said. “And while I appreciate, I have great admiration for and respect for and a long relationship with John McCain but one place I would not go for advice on vice presidential running mates is to Senator McCain.”

McCain picked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 election against Obama. On Wednesday McCain said it “might be wise” for Obama to drop Biden in favor of Clinton.

According to the daily public presidential schedule, Obama met with Biden and Clinton together on Thursday.

Quick! Time for another diversion, and it’s dog related, too:

Obama Narrowly Avoids Being Beaten To Death After Suggesting Family Dog Bo Has More Charisma Than His Mother-In-Law…

President Barack Obama could be in the doghouse with his mother-in-law after suggesting Bo, the family pet, has more charisma than her.

He was quick to correct his Freudian slip in a campaign speech he made yesterday in Davenport, Iowa.

After his wife Michelle addressed the crowd, Obama took the podium and said: ‘Let’s face it, on the charisma rankings in my household, you’ve got her (Michelle), the girls, Bo and then my mother-in-law and then me.’

While Bo the Portuguese water dog has been a very public fixture at the White House, Obama realised what he had said and was quick to say his mother-in-law Marian Robinson was actually more charismatic than the dog.

He said: ‘Actually my mother in law is before Bo, obviously.

‘I love my mother-in-law, too – that’s where Michelle got her looks from.’

Mrs Robinson lives with the family in the White House after Obama became the first American president to appoint a ‘First Grandmother’ in 2008 to look after his daughters.

Which one do you suppose is the winning strategy? I honestly don’t know but I would be much happier to be talking about the economy right now than discussing the Romney pet or hiring a deputy director of gaffes to follow Biden around.

This is an economy election. I wonder how much longer the few undecideds are going to abide by fluff interviews and meaningless “issues” designed to distract from jobs and the economy.

Charlemagne on August 16, 2012 at 2:28 PM

Good luck getting anyone to ask that. I don’t even think Obama knows. I assume he’s referring to the Bush tax cuts, but that begs 2 questions:

1) Why did he extend them for 2 years?

2) Why didn’t raise taxes immediately when he took office? Theoretically that would undo all the damage they did, right?

I personally don’t think anyone who intends to vote is ‘undecided’ at this point. My opinion is that the ones Chicago Jesus needs to fear are those who voted for him last time and sure as hell won’t make that mistake again, and those who are voting for the first time who see how rough Obama made the lives of them and their families. Plus, there are those who voted for O the first time but are now disillusioned but refuse to vote Republican no matter what. They’ll sit home, which is a loss to Obama.

I won’t predict how the election might turn out, but it sure seems the crest Obama rode in 08 has crashed on the shore, leaving him mere flotsam.

Obama’s 36% approval rating on the economy is his “real” number, not the inflated one that’s in the mid to low 40s.

When a pollster asks someone if they just “approve” of Obama, the media has set the narrative that you’re asking if a person hates black people or not.

I genuinely do see a race that looks tight, but Obama gets blown out of the water. At some point, these races always turn on the economy, and it’s the worse I’ve seen in my lifetime.

If we had an honest media, the polls would be Romney 60, Obama 40, with the margin widening.

The media, a monolithic black vote, and a large Hispanic vote are the only things keeping this race close.

The conventions will be interesting. R2 should come out of the RNCC with a great deal of mojo. Obama-Biden will have a flat convention and will come out entirely spent.

The economy, the deficits, and the debt are huge. But being able to hang the enactment of $716B of Medicare cuts around Obama’s neck is a gift. Obama really blew that much time and political capital just to screw seniors?

Romney is the perfect candidate to have our caucus as unified as possible for the event as well.

Barack is going nuts trying to hurt Mitt’s character and the American people are not gonna buy the Barack Obama lightworker story again and look ONLY at the opponent.

The more he attacks Mitt’s character the more likely it is people will study who he really is.

The more people KNOW Obama the better it is for us.
