    Poll: Most see Obama as a failure

    By Justin Sink - 10/07/14 01:07 PM EDT

    A clear majority of Americans describe President Obama's tenure as a "failure" according to a new poll released Monday.

    The survey from IBD/TIPP indicates that 53 percent of adults in the United States now characterize Obama's presidency as a "failure," while 41 percent chalk it up as a success. Half of the people who live in states won by Obama see his tenure negatively, as do 59 percent of those aged 25-44 years old.

    Some of the key groups remain solid in their support of the president, though. More than three-quarters of voters aged 18-24 see Obama's presidency as a success, as do 54 percent of single women.

    By contrast, only 32 percent of married women describe Obama as a success while 58 percent of independents see him as a failure.

    The survey also found that only 43 percent of U.S. adults say they would vote for Obama, who has been besieged by international crises, were a presidential election held today. Some 49 percent would favor 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    The slide in approval of the president seems to be primarily driven by concern over his economic record. While three in four Americans say they place a "high importance" on the economy and jobs when evaluating candidates, just 31 percent say Obama is doing a good job at growing the economy.

    At a speech last week at Northwestern University, Obama looked to reverse those perceptions, arguing it was "indisputable that our economy is stronger today than it was when I took office." Obama said progress "has been hard, but it has been steady, and it is real."

    In the address, Obama acknowledged that there were persistent frustrations with the economy, but blamed congressional Republicans for blocking policy ideas he argues would have helped the middle class reap more benefits from the recovery.

    "When push came to shove this year, and Republicans in Congress actually had to take a stand on policies that would help the middle class and working Americans — raising the minimum wage, enacting fair pay, refinancing student loans, extending insurance for the unemployed — the answer was 'no,'” Obama said.

    Republicans blasted back, saying Obama had killed middle class jobs through regulation and blocking construction projects like the Keystone XL pipeline.

    "What about Americans who work in industries that liberals in Washington don’t approve of, like coal?" Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said. "This administration has thrown a wet blanket over the economy with its focus on spending, borrowing, taxing and regulating, and those things clearly haven’t worked."

    I have a suggestion for Obama (and I know he's listening). I'll take a page from the liberals' playbook from a few years back.....

    I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, liberals, but Obama's approval rating is dismal. Couldn't you foresee this in 2008? Were you blinded by his "hope and change" mantra? Were you overwhelmed by the thrill up your leg?

    Well, anyway, Obama is dragging your entire party down. Democrats doing poorly across the country this election cycle can place a lot of the blame squarely on Obama's shoulders. Well... not just Obama. Of course their idiotic, liberal policies and beliefs have a lot to do with it, but that's fodder for another discussion.

    Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama like the plague. Not only has Obama been labeled the worst president since WWII, he will probably go down in history as one of the worst presidents... ever. Certainly worse than Jimmy Carter. Oh well, after November, his ability to do damage will be greatly diminished. It's his own fault, really.

    He wouldn't work with Republicans to get things done. The economy is still in a shambles and he's done nothing to repair it. He is responsible for the rise of ISIS. On the world stage, he's seen as a stooge. He was elected because of the color of his skin, nothing more. He's done absolutely nothing to help race relations; in fact race relations are worse today than when he was elected. His administration has been one of the most secretive in history and one of the most corrupt. He has bombed and killed innocent civilians including American citizens. He signed legislation authorizing him (or any future president) to incarcerate civilians indefinitely and without trial. Obamacare, his self-stated "achievement" is a failure.

    Corruption, war, ineptitude, a stagnant economy, malaise, racial strife, deceit and lies will be the hallmarks of his legacy.

    So bringing the unemployment rate under 6% a year and a half after Romney said that he would do it by the end of his first term, slashing the deficit, and a record stock market is a failure to the Right wingers. I see. Maybe there is just no way to ever appease you losers? Ya think?

    Economy is booming. So remind me just when Illinois managed to return its employment back to 2008 levels. OOPS, that's right. They have lost 300,000 jobs since 2008. OK, so when did the US (excluding Texas) employment get back to it 2008 level? Double OOPS here. They have not made it yet either. So how did the IOC get the unemployment rate down? Oh, that's right. The people got so tired looking for jobs that they left the work force. And why shouldn't they. They get unemployment forever, food stamps and welfare. They lose money if they went back to work.

    From Hope to Nope: Respect for Obama Plummets in Eyes of Americans

    By Cheryl K. Chumley, The Washington Times

    President Obama in the lead-up to November’s elections can’t shake the disfavor of the American public, and his numbers have dropped to all-time lows in at least one poll from ABC News and The Washington Post, released Wednesday.

    The title of the poll press release says it all: “Trouble Looms for Obama, Democrats With the 2014 Midterms Approach,” the ABC News/Washington Post Poll release stated.

    Only four of 10 Americans say they approve of his handling of his job. Fifty-one percent, meanwhile, give him thumbs-down for job performance, The Hill reported. And only 39 percent see Democrats in general in a favorable light — the lowest rating for the party since 1984.

    Fully half of voters say they’re going to cast a Republican ticket in November, while only 43 percent will vote Democratic, the poll shows.
