The truth about Obama’s dismal poll numbers

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

According to the results of a new AP-GFK poll, President Obama’s approval rating has reached a mere 37%, and on radio this morning, Glenn explained the implicit meaning of such numbers.

“That’s a stunning, stunning number. “This is a president has a 37% approval rating and the press is telling everybody, ‘He’s great. He’s fantastic,’” Glenn said. “So, what’s happening? The President’s numbers are falling as they should because the game is over. The game is over.”

The honeymoon may be over for this President, but that doesn’t mean the battle is won.

“Everybody can see that he is spiteful and vindictive with a 37% approval rating. I warn you, if you continue to let this go on and you have nobody watching the door for you, you have no one watching the Constitution, what you are seeing now in spite and in vindictiveness is only going to get much, much worse,” Glenn explained. “We’re now in full fledge shove, and the next step is shoot. It’s very bad.”

“Don’t tell me that it won’t happen in America. Tell me then about the internment camps that were done by a progressive president. Don’t tell me that we wouldn’t round up American citizens because we’ve done it two times before,” he continued. “We’ve enslaved a whole race of people. Don’t tell me we won’t do it. What did we do to the Indians? So, please, give it a rest. It happens over and over in global history. That’s the way people are if you don’t have checks and balances.”

But President Obama’s approval rating isn’t the only thing slipping. The Republican Party as a whole is facing a similar situation. According to a Gallup poll released yesterday, the Republican Party’s favorability as sunk to an all-time low of 28%.

“Now, the Republicans… they have never been this low before… Why? Because they are shutting down the government. No. That’s not why they have a 28% approval rating,” Glenn said. “Yes, it is a disaster for the GOP. Yes, the Republicans are despised almost universally so. And I believe the Republicans, if they keep going the way they are going, they are going to have a 15% approval rating. Good. As they should.”

“Here’s why their numbers are going down: The people don’t believe in [the Republicans] at all. You see, the people who are actually supporters of the GOP actually believe in something more than an Obama phone,” he continued. “They believe in something bigger. They believe in truth, justice, and the American way. They believe in the Constitution. And when you have a group of people that will not hold up the Constitution they say they will, of course, their approval ratings are going to go down. We’re not dirt bags. We actually do believe it. We do believe it. And so that’s where they are losing all of this power. That’s why their numbers are going down. And it should be this way.”

    Obama is a ruthless, pathological sociopathic narcissist who has no feelings for anyone; this has been established time and again in his time in office. Honestly, why does anyone still hold he will have the least bit of mercy on anyone when his desperation hits the breaking point?

    And for the record, that point is closer than most anticipate.

    Obama is vindictive, childish, hateful, spiteful, corrupt, arrogant and by his actions doesn’t seem to like our country much and what we stand for.  He has in the past voiced some disdain for our Constitution, calling it a document of “negative liberties” which limits what government can do.  The worst president ever, hands down.  I’m surprised his poll numbers are that high.  But, of course, if they are polling the takers and users then that may account for it.

    Obama is losing altitude. So is America. If he’s lucky, he won’t be president as the American plane crash lands. America is coming in for a crash landing. The only question is will the landing wheels be deployed or will the sparks be flying during America’s belly crash.

    In November 2008, Bush had a 25 percent approval rating. Obama still has a ways to go to reach that depth. 

    And oddly, the right wing polls are given Obama higher rankings than the poll Beck is quoting. Fox News currently has Obama at 45 percent, and Rasmussen has him at 51 percent.

    Muslims have no mercy toward your enemies. I think people need to understand that is what he believes. He was taught this in the Madrassas he attended as a boy. This kind of indoctrination does never go away. This is not the acts of a Christian he purports to be.

    Unfortunately for all you Glenbots, Obamas poll numbers are larger than the combined total of all the house Repubs. I know thats an awfully low bar but….    I wonder what the good wizard Glen has to say about that.

    You have to use Obama numbers.  37% X 2  -1     In California  it’s X 3 + 1  ( I know the numbers don’t add up right – It’s California)
    In Obama land everything is great.

    On the lighter side, Pres Obama’s poll approval has finally reached the 1/2 value of what he typically shoots on the fromt 9 every weekend….and Thursday afternoons….and Monday mornings….and Wednesdays at around a 10 AM tee time.

    I believe that people are just getting sick of Washington altogether. That is why these dismal figures. People are losing faith in Obama, but the GOP has no better reps for the job. With the latest poll, 35% of people don’t even vote. That means if the right person comes up, he/she could handily win majority approval.

    I hate to break it to you, but they don’t believe a word of it is true AND they still think he’s better than George Bush. I’m considered the conservative wing nut in my community. They all think I’m a conspiracy theorist who has drunk the kool aid. It’s very very frustrating to battle on with fact after fact and still get laughed at. But, for the sake of our country, I’ll never give up trying.

    The Republicans are at 28%, the Democrats are at 43% and the President is at 37%.  Let’s see – the presidents approval rating is lower than the Democrats.  Hmmm!  The president is 6% below the democrats and the republicans are only 9% below the president.  Hmmm!

    Glenn, I believe what you have said. Only thing is that obammy has told the world that the GOP is the one that started this mess. Not TRUE. He started it. obammy has brain washed the people so much that they believe in him. The rag media is always on his side and they pump him up and say all of these bad things about the GOP.  USA PEOPLE WAKE UP AND SMELL YOUR COFFEE OR THE ROSES. Look at what he has done to the veterans. It has reminded me of  the terrible Benghazi affair. He blames everything on every one else. He doesn’t take any blame that he has caused.  He is a dictator, ruthless, pathological sociopathic narcissist and he has no feelings for anyone. He hates the USA and he wants to destroy us. He wants a one party system like Hitler had.  Look around and see where the jobs are at and see your neighbors out of a job. A lot of those jobs are over seas in different countries. If he wins this mess that we are in and then we will have the Socialist obammycare, we won’t have a nation. Are you going to be one of the people that will go from 40 hour week or more to a 29 hour week only. The Demo’s are the ones that voted for obammycare, the Republicans didn’t. The Supreme Court said that O.Care was a TAX. Now, then it will be easier for him and his militia to come to each home and take your guns, your ammunition and food. Then there is the FEMA camps that you will be rounded up to. Is that the America you want??????? I DO NOT WANT IT. I LOVE MY FREEDOM AND I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

    The media didn’t do anything about it. I wrote to many T.V. stations and newspapers, but they didn’t do anything. I could tell them where to look for all of the information I gave them. The media thinks that he was a God, but he is the son of satan. I am proud to say I didn’t vote for him on anything. I think he is a liar, cheater, dictator and more. He is a Muslim, jihard, socialist/communist. His cabinet is the same as he is. They all hate the USA.

     You are making a fool of yourself. Snowleopard is a lot wiser then you are.

  • mspatdev

    I agree with you. If the media or the different people taking the polls have lied about the numbers. He has changed a lot of our laws. If he doesn’t like them he has gone in and changed them. obammycare was signed by the demo’s about 3 1/2 years ago and he keeps going in and changing the words and making it worse for the people. He has changed abortions, same sex marriage and a lot more that he had no right to.

    For one thing, the Prez (and to a certain extent, the Dems) have a cheering section in the LSM.

    They don’t, usually, have very many kind things to say about the Reps. 

    On the other hand, the Reps. have a very poor record in getting their message out.  (See: last

    two elections.)  And they can, surely, do better in their pick of candidates for POTUS.  Thinking

    esp. of Dole and McCain, who both may be good men, but just because they have

    EXPERIENCE, doesn’t mean that the old dudes ”deserve” to be selected to run.  The Reps.

    really don’t have a ”leader”, as such, at this point.  Don’t know who that would be, but it should

    be someone who could articulate what the Reps. value,  ie: the US Constitution, integrity, love

    of the country, pride in what our nation has done for freedom.  There are more, but the hour is

    late, I’m getting tired.  You can fill in the blanks.

    President Obama is staying true to the oath he most likely took in secret when he became president. Which has nothing to do with constitutional by-laws. The public are outsiders, we always have been. That’s the hierarchy of America. We are useful for voting people into power and they give us just enough so we won’t start a revolution. After that usefulness is gone we’re pretty much expendable. So it doesn’t much matter what WE think about the leaders. The numbers that matter are the ones he gets from Congress and the people he put in as officers of the club this time around.

    I keep trying to tell people that Obama was ELECTED BEFORE the election !  George Soros and his hackers controled the Electoral votes. Remember,if the NSA can go in on our e-mails,phones,know where we live,know what we’re doing,then they can control votes on the ELECTIONS. We need to go back to PAPER BALLOTS

    I feal sorry for all the people that are praising this FAKE, because,in the end they will be cast aside when they’re no longer are needed for his AGENDA to be Fulfilled. When he puts Sharia Law into effect,many of these same people will be slaughtered,put in camps, tortured,raped, because Muslims don’t believe as they do. And you know who I’m talking about, I don’t think many in DC will be needed either.

    I do not believe the 28% is directed at the WHOLE group of legislators that call themselves “Republicans”. I believe the 28% is mostly directed at the quisling RINOs.

    Sara you might be right.  If the Democrats win the midterm election in 2014, we sure know that something is amiss.  But, if we know it why are the Republicans in Washington DC not able to figure it out?  It seems they always get outmaneuvered!

    It’s time to vote both the Republican and 
    Democratic bums out of office.  People
    are finally starting to wake up.  We must
    for sure vote all the Democrats out of
    office.  The majority are Socialists.  They
    have a so called progressive agenda.
    We cannot vote for Hillary Clinton.  She
    talked to her cronies at a meeting and said
    she has  progressive programs.  All of
    you please tell your family and friends.  It
    is the Democrats more than the Republicans
    who are ruining America.  We have to vote
    for someone who loves America.  The American
    people have taken from the trough for far too
    long.  They have to start working.
    I would advise all of you to watch the October 9,
    2013 Senate hearings.  You will find out what
    will happen to all of America if we don’t stop
    spending when we have no money to pay our
    bills.  It is actually extremely scary.  We must
    stop the Democrats.

    First stanza lyrics are right on – should become thought of as  “The Obama Voter’s Lament”

    “I am just a poor boy
    Though my story’s seldom told
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
    All lies and jests
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest

    Lie la Lie…”
