President Obama’s Disapproval Rating Reaches a New High

14 Sep



President Obama hasn’t quite felt the benefits of his recent jobs speech.  A new CNN/ORC poll has found that 55% of Americans disapprove of the job that the president is doing.  Also, the percentage of Americans who think that the president is a strong leader has dropped to 48%, a new low.

Another trend that continues is that while Americans are not fans of President Obama’s leadership, they continue to like him personally.   Roughly  8-in-10 Americans say that President Obama is likeable.  They also believe that he is compassionate, hard-working and has a vision for the future.

A concern for the Obama Administration is that Americans do not feel that he is equipped to deal with unemployment.   Only 39% approve of how he is handling the jobs crisis, and only 36% approve of how he’s handling the economy.

Other facts:  Only one out of 10 Americans think that President Obama’s policies have helped the economy and 39% give him credit for preventing the economy from being worse than it is right now.  About 37% believe that the president has made economic conditions worse and 15% believe that he has had no effect.

Overall, a total of 55% of Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job as president.  This beats the 54% disapproval rating from last month.

    I think President Obama is doing as good if not a better job than most would, given the same set of circumstances. This man has saved the country from the brink of financial
    destruction which no one wants to acknowledge. If the truth is to be told, the criticisms of our President has nothing to do with the jobless rate or the economy, but rather about the man himself who happens to be a black man.
    I look forward to helping President Obama get reelected.

      You are correct in saying that, “Obama is doing a good job if not better than most, given the same set of circumstances.” When Obama took over as President we had hit the bottom of a downward spiral, and he managed to keep it from going further into the abyss. He has not had enough time or cooperation to be able to begin to bring America back into an upward spin. I do believe that in his second term we will begin to see his vision and America can begin a long, but steady recovery period back to the America we used to be.

        There are a lot of helpful programs coming from this administration. But there are conflicting polls out there, some same approval has dropped, and some say approval has increased since the jobs speech/proposal.

      I will to help him get reelected. I also like the way he do not reply to the GOPs because in Proverbs 20:3 it says

      It is an honor for a man to stay out of a fight. Only fools insist on quarreling.

      So on that note thanks Mr. Obama for showing me that u are not the fool everyone want u to be.

    For only having two years of putting out Bush’s Eight year fire, President Obama is doing a GREAT job. Cannot make everybody happy, they got upset with Jesus, attempting to save them, not happy. We need to count our BLESSINGS on what President Obama saved from destruction such as the banks, car industries, health care, loans for college, killing of a man Bush searched for many years could not find: which President Obama found and eliminated, helping people to save their homes, etc. We need to learn how to be grateful. I am hurting just like a lot of people; I am working with my elected leaders to make things better for other and me. It takes time for a cake to bake in the oven.
