CNN: Obama doesn’t get to 50% approval … on anything

posted at 10:01 am on June 4, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

That analysis comes from CNN’s John King, who notes that Barack Obama has had some, er, problems connecting with the public in his second term. In the poll released yesterday, CNN asked respondents for opinions on twelve issues, and Obama didn’t get to 50% on a single one — but had majority disapproval for all but two:

In fact, his overall approval rating in the CNN series has barely budged from the announcement over a year ago that the IRS had targeted Obama’s political opponents in Tea Party organizations. It’s also about the same time that whistleblowers emerged to dispute the White House/State Department narrative on Benghazi, too. At that point, CNN had Obama’s job approval rating at 53/45, roughly where it had been since his re-election. It hasn’t been above 45% since.

Only on environmental policy did Obama register a positive reaction, but it’s mighty thin at 49/45. He scored 49/49 on terrorism, but most of the poll was conducted before Americans found out that Obama released five of the most dangerous Taliban figures from Guantanamo Bay — and did so illegally. Don’t expect that number to remain balanced for long, in other words. On issues closer to the midterm focus, Obama performs abysmally:

  • Economy – 38/61, down from 43/56 in September
  • Health care – 36/63, was 42/55
  • Foreign affairs – 40/57, same
  • Helping the middle class – 40/58, was not asked in September
  • The VA – 37/58 (new)
  • Ukraine – 38/53 (new)

The economy will be the real danger area for Democrats in the midterms, especially those running in red and purple states, and so will health care. Those are the top two issues respondents named for the most important issue in the country, 40% and 19% respectively — and they used to be Democratic Party strengths. The White House wants to talk about the environment and immigration, but neither of them even reach double digits on the priority list CNN gets from its survey.

This is the price of incompetence, and this was before the Bergdahl disaster. It’s left the White House and its Democrat allies no room to pivot anywhere. As King and his panel conclude, it’s not so much disagreement on the issues as it is a vote of no confidence in the man who’s implementing them.

Too high in my opinion..

Electrongod on June 4, 2014 at 10:02 AM

Health care – 36/63, was 42/55

At some point, party loyalty has to crumble.

I mean, it has to right? These people aren’t that dumb…

JohnGalt23 on June 4, 2014 at 10:04 AM

So many racists in this country. With regard to the economy, that may be the one good thing(if you can even call it that) with the VA and Bergdahl scandals dominating the news. That -1% GDP report seems like ancient history already. Of course, if the next quarter is just as bad, we’ll officially be in a recession and even his sycophants in the press will have to at least mention that.

If so, Obama would be setup as the lone hero standing against the evil racist Republicans.

This is what you get after half a century of leftist indoctrination instead of education.

As to the polling… I want to see what the polling looks like on the Traitor for Terrorists swap. That’s not going to be pretty… The inevitable Obama stark raving mad bunker rant public meltdown could happen at any time…

You and I know that the actual number could be -5% growth but the initial release will be positive something… then revised down later. Unemployment and economic releases from The Regime are for propaganda purposes only, they aren’t factual. And don’t need to be with a Praetorian Press Corpse.

Darn and here the administration is fresh out of POW/deserters and VA Secretaries. Too early to pull the trigger on amnesty, I guess it’s time to throw another gay or female issue on the fire.

ConstantineXI on June 4, 2014 at 10:11 AM

Two problems with that. When GDP is that bad, even the fudged initial number won’t look good(like the 0.1% figure). And eventually the bad, real number will find its way out there.

Also, if the 2nd quarter GDP number(the real one anyway) winds up being negative, that officially puts us in a recession. That cannot be spun positively by the media. They’ll certainly try, but I’d love to hear them try to explain how a recession is nothing to be concerned about without sounding like a bunch of Debbie What-a-dumb Schmucks.

Midas on June 4, 2014 at 10:37 AM

OT- Guess what is wrong in this statement from Chuck Schumer.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, countered that no amendment is absolute — not even the First Amendment. He said restrictions on pornography or libel are part of a balancing test.

“I think if Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Bill of Rights, were looking down on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute,” Mr. Schumer said.

This is the caliber of Congresscritter we have today. We are no longer sending our best and brightest to DC. Just ignorant lazy shills like Obama and Schumer (to name just two).

Happy Nomad on June 4, 2014 at 10:39 AM

locomotivebreath1901 on June 4, 2014 at 10:13 AM

Why would it? Most Democrats are profiting very handsomely from this current state of affairs. The ones suffering most from the problems with the recession, the VA, the IRS, etc are the middle class and Republicans who largely don’t support Obama.

An opposition party would be able to put the pressure on, but right now we don’t have one of those – the Republicans are covering for Obama as best they can.

That won’t last long, once the public catches on to the fact that Obama’s new idiotic EPA regs are going to destroy U.S. jobs and make our energy prices go through the roof, while doing absolutely nothing to curb global carbon emissions (the ostensible purpose of the regs).

Dumb doesn’t apply though many of them are as stupid as Obama. It’s the single issue voters in the very divisive society created by the left. Screeching horrible women who don’t give a damn about anything but their birth canals. Gays who don’t give a damn about anything but forcing their lifestyle choice on societal institutions. Hispanics who only want to get amnesty for the relatives living in their basement. And, of course, inner-city parasites, who are merely looking for more welfare in all its forms.

If he’d not been born mentally inferior and had been raised to be semi-competent instead of “show up and get prizes!” he would have half the nation loving him to pieces. And the other half would have already started an armed revolt while the ashes of their churches were still smoldering.

The bias is built into the sample.

For example, if I wanted to skew a report on average house temperatures in the summer, rather than measuring at the thermostat of each house, depending on what sort of result I want (the bias), I would measure either in front of the air-conditioning vent or on the windowsill of the southwest corner in the afternoon.

No one said that I had to inform anyone of the methodology, I let the reader of the poll assume that I was honest and let them eisegete what they want into the skewed results.

That’s what it will take. Half the left hates this country with a passion. The other half are convinced that they have to oppose conservatism because it’s cool and popular to do so–like teenagers trying to impress each other by disobeying commonsense advice from their parents. Only when the roof caves in will that second half realize that they were wrong.

AS a consolation prize he did get to an astonishing +5 today on Rasmussen, single handedly (again) skewing the RCP average by almost 2.5 pts in Obama’s favor. Big gift there. They usually only skew the average by 1-1.5 pts.

So, you know, even if CNN wants to twist things to try to make Obama look bad in their polling, Rasmussen Reports will be there to give him hugs and cuddles and make him feel better no matter how mathematical improbable the daily swing.

Lord, hear my prayer: kill all of my enemies with a vengeful, flashing sword.
There, now my opinion can be dismissed as coming from a ‘Krister’.

I’ve had no confidence in this fascist creep since 2007. I really wish people had got off the whole race thing and listened a bit to the facts, but then again, we’d have mclame as president. Would it have really been any better?

Sigh….

I hate Johnny Mac with every bone in my body, but still I am certain he would have made a better president than Barky.

Still way too high.

It really con’t get much lower. We are approaching the dhimocrapt constituency level. And since nothing can be dumber than a dhimocrapt, they can’t go below nothing or zero IQ. If everybody else gives zero approval, we are still stuck in the 30% approval range.

This is the price of incompetence, and this was before the Bergdahl disaster. It’s left the White House and its Democrat allies no room to pivot anywhere.

*whew!* THAT’S a relief…there’s a Dramamine shortage in my local WMT and my Handy Dandy Little Giant Squirrel Eliminator (Deluxe Version) is all out of buwwets…

AS a consolation prize he did get to an astonishing +5 today on Rasmussen, single handedly (again) skewing the RCP average by almost 2.5 pts in Obama’s favor. Big gift there. They usually only skew the average by 1-1.5 pts.

So, you know, even if CNN wants to twist things to try to make Obama look bad in their polling, Rasmussen Reports will be there to give him hugs and cuddles and make him feel better no matter how mathematical improbable the daily swing.

I saw that too. The approval numbers at Rassmussen rose during the VA scandal and now rose even more during the Bergdahl scandal. If the administration can just arrange a few more scandals, Rasmussen will have the President on Mount Rushmore.

It’s amazing how so many millions of people, who weren’t racist before, have suddenly become racist in the last few years. Must be something in the water.

No they’ve always been racist, they just didn’t have a national symbol to collectively freak out about. On the plus side they are mostly the oldest generational cohort, so a few more years and the problem sorts itself out…

Why are his numbers this high? What is WRONG with people? I keep picturing dumb looks on these lefties faces whenever their city is burning down due to a Taliban attack. What will it take to make these morons realize what a disaster Obama is?

neyney on June 4, 2014 at 11:26 AM

You really think the Taleban is going to launch an attack on the US that will burn down cities don’t you? And you complain about other people being out of touch with reality?

Irony

Yeah, and the attack on the Twin Towers was expected…we were all just standing around taking bets on it as to when, as well as Pearl Harbor, right?

Go soak your head.

I think he’s going full commando and letting his real hatred and beliefs out in the open. No more hopeychangey…Hussein’s running out of time…so the real American-hating muslim fascist has emerged from the chrysalis to speed up the process.

Indeed – it’ll be a dandy first-aid for black eyes and fat lips until he gets home.
