For first time, Q-poll shows Obama now viewed as more dishonest than honest

Just gearing up to punt the ball to Team Red, where the whole cycle will repeat itself, and more liberty will be lost.

What's in a fib? For first time, Q-poll shows Obama now viewed as more dishonest than honest

President Obama's poll numbers have been tanking for weeks now, amid his administration's incompetent rollout of the Obamacare siign-up website and, more recently, his fib that under the law "you can keep your insurance. Period." (He should've just promised that people could keep their political dysfunction).

Now, Quinnipiac University's polling institute has found that it has cost Obama dearly.

"For the first time today, American voters say 52 - 44 percent that Obama is not honest and trustworthy. His previous lowest marks on honesty were May 30, when 49 percent of voters said he was honest and 47 percent said he wasn't," Quinnipiac reported.

"American voters are divided 46 - 47 percent on whether Obama "knowingly deceived" the public when he said people could keep their existing health insurance plans if they wished...

"American voters disapprove 54 - 39 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, his lowest approval rating in any Quinnipiac University national poll since he became president, as even women disapprove 51 - 40 percent, according to a national poll released today.

"Today's results compare to a slight 49 - 45 percent disapproval October 1. President Obama's lowest score before today was a 55 - 41 percent disapproval in an October 6, 2011 survey.."

And it gets worse for the president. Compared to Obama, Republican slightly edge him (by an inside-the-error-margin amount) on handling: Health care 42-43; the economy 41-45; immigration 40-41%, and the federal budget 40-45.

Only 43 percent say Obama's administration is competent compared to 53 percent who say it isn't.

Maybe these are outlier results.

But his approval rating really isn't. Gallup's tracking poll yesterday already found Obama's approval rating index at near record lows, -14 percent. And now Quinnipiac finds it at -15.

Normally, we don't blog every national poll. But this is significant.

Since Florida often reflects the nation, these numbers probably look similar just in the Sunshine State.

I'm not ready to give up. When we are stuck with just two to chose from we have to go with the lesser of the two evils.

This country can't afford another disaster like obama. There is no way a Republican could have been worse.

As bad, I think.

Just in different ways.

Voting for or supporting a lesser evil, is, of course, still supporting evil.

I almost agree. We are stuck with no choice.
