That's fine with me! I think he's doing a great job, and he's not running again anyway. An intransigent congress will always bring down a president, and that is the Republican's goal. The only fly in the ointment for them is he got reelected!!

Now the Republicans are doing their best to get Hillary elected!

There you go again. It's the Republican's fault because your guy is doing so badly!! IT's the Democrat's way, never take personal responsibility for anything.

Can you post where you got that number?

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove"

Great numbers, Achigan, thanks! It's interesting that WHL doesn't see any correlation between a do-nothing congress and the president's popularity. Many people will hold the president responsible for the do-nothing congress, but it's obvious that Americans really see the game that Republicans are playing here. "Our goal is to make Obama a 1 term president"!

I heard it on Fox an then googled it to make sure I heard it right. Just google it and you will find links.

Of course you think Obama is doing a good job, NB. I don't think there is any awful thing he could do that would make you think he wasn't wonderful. And there is nothing to make you stop saying that all Obama's problems are caused by the Republicans. I am hoping that you just keep saying it and don't really believe it. That is the Dems motto-if you lie to the people enough, they will believe the lies.

I did google it and I got what I posted in my above post. If at all possible (and don't get upset) could you post what you googled and got.

I don't think it's appropriate for an Administrator to insult other members personally, WHL. If you're not really an Administrator then you should remove the title under your forum name. Your personal demeanor toward others who don't agree with you is biased and not fitting for an Administrator. You should also be able to take criticism in your official position, and I'm more than happy to give it to you. I have no requirement to be objective since I'm not an officer on this forum!

You call that an insult? I thought it was just a simple fact. After all, every post on here regarding Obama reveals that in your mind he can do no wrong.

So at this point it comes down to whose demographics do you believe, Gallup or Rasmussen.

I think Obama's job approval rating has gone up slightly in the past few weeks. Not much, but it has gone up.

Just found this from Rasmussen:



Positive views on President Obama’s economic leadership continue to improve after reaching a year-and-a-half low last month.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters now give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of economic issues. That's up from a low of 32% in early December and Obama's highest positives in this area since October. Slightly more (41%) still rate the president’s economic performance as poor, but that's down from a recent high of 48% early last month. (To see survey question wording, click here).

This is what I found for Friday. Here is the whole thing:


Friday, January 17, 2014

Positive views on President Obama’s economic leadership continue to improve after reaching a year-and-a-half low last month.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39% of Likely U.S. Voters now give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of economic issues. That's up from a low of 32% in early December and Obama's highest positives in this area since October. Slightly more (41%) still rate the president’s economic performance as poor, but that's down from a recent high of 48% early last month. (To see survey question wording, click here).

As has been the case throughout his presidency, Obama fares slightly better when it comes to national security. Forty-two percent (42%) of voters rate his handling of issues related to national security as good or excellent, while 34% believe he’s doing a poor job. This is generally consistent with surveying for the past few months.

Fifty percent (50%) of the Political Class give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of economic issues, while 51% of Mainstream voters rate his performance in this area as poor. LINK Fifty-six percent (56%) of Political Class voters give the president positive marks for his national security efforts, compared to 32% of those in the Mainstream.

Most voters continue to believe the U.S. economy is fair to women, blacks and Hispanics, but more voters than ever view (66%) view the economy as unfair to the middle class.

Confidence that the United States today is safer than it was before the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, has fallen to its lowest level since the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

(Want a free daily e-mail update? If it's in the news, it's in our polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

The national telephone survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports on January 13-14, 2014. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 2 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

The president’s monthly job approval rating rose two points to 47% in December. That’s up from 45% in November, the president’s lowest monthly approval in two years, but still down nine points from December 2012’s recent high of 56%.

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Democrats like the job the president is doing with the economy. Seventy-seven (77%) percent of Republicans and a plurality (41%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party do not. When it comes to national security, Obama earns good or excellent marks from 71% of Democrats and poor marks from 66% of GOP voters. Among unaffiliateds, 36% say good or excellent, 34% poor.

Older voters rate the president more negatively on both the economy and national security than younger voters do.

Blacks overwhelmingly think the president is doing a good or excellent job in both areas. Whites and other minority voters tend to think he’s performing poorly, especially when it comes to economy.

The president has declared income equality to be his number one issue this year, but 53% of all voters continue to rate economic growth as more important than economic fairness. Only 38% think the U.S. economy now is at least somewhat fair to people who are willing to work hard, a new low.

Voters strongly believe that radical Islam remains a threat to the United States, and 36% think the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have only made the problem worse.

Additional information from this survey and a full demographic breakdown are available to Platinum Members only.

The bottom line from Rasmussen is that Obama's job performance rating is 50%.

You can pick and choose the lowest of the sections like the economy and that's Ok with me. His performance rating which is the one that counts with me is 50%.

The 39% that you are talking about is the economy and not his overall performance.

Your first post said: "Obama is not doing any better. 39% approval." It was hard to understand what that meant...approval for what...how he looks maybe???

I guess I just don't see where it says his overall job performance rating is 50%?

I just read this from Fox News, your favorite news media:
 
"Fox News poll: Voters give 2013 a thumbs up, feel optimistic about economy

For the first time in years, people feel positive about how things went for their family this year.  In addition, a slim majority feels optimistic about the economy next year.  That’s according to a year-end Fox News poll released Monday.

Just over half of voters -- 51 percent -- feel 2013 was a good year for them.  That’s up from 42 percent who felt that way at the end of last year, and up significantly from 34 percent who felt good at the end of 2009

Just to end the misinformation. Obama does not have a 50% job approval rating.

According to Real Clear Politics, Obama has a 42% approval, 53% disapprove. RCP is a polling average from many sources including Rasmussen. Rasmussen is CLEARLY out of line with all the other polls. No doubt why that was the one poll referenced here.

Rasmussen 47% approve, 51% disapprove.

I think 47% is probably the "mean" or "average" value of his approval rating. It's hard to pin it down when there are different polls.

That is what you think? Really?

The RCP average is the AVERAGE of all the polls. Why would you think the Rasmussen Reports poll was the average when the results fell clearlly outside the curve?

Oh wait never mind...I understand why you would think that.

I don't really know what it is. It's somewhere between 40 and 50. If you want to pick 39 then it's OK with me.
