    Obama's Approval Rating Falls 15 Points



    US president Barack Obama's approval rating plunges 15 points from the original 83 percent in the first week of his tenure, a new poll finds.


    The Gallup polling firm which tracks president's approval/disapproval rating every day, says Obama began his administration with a 68 percent 'approval' rating.

    Despite a 15% drop, Obama still maintains good ratings falling only second behind John F. Kennedy, who had 72% approval rating on Feb. 15, 1961.

    Eisenhower equaled Obama's approval at 68%. Since Kennedy, Carter started with 66%, Reagan 51%, George H.W. Bush 51%, Clinton 58%, and George W. Bush 57%.

    That's right. When it goes below 50 percent and stays there, then people should pay attention.

    As high as the expectations have been raised it shouldn't take long to get there.

    His loony, bat shit, left worshippers are the first ones he's pissed off, like code pink. They're coming to realise he lied to them during his campaign. Wow... shocker there aye? :lol:

    And as this year grinds on with people still losing their jobs and the economy in the tank, his approval rating is going to 'dip' further yet. I wouldn't doubt he becomes almost as hated as GW.

    Obama was sold to the ignorant masses like a hip new energy drink. Brilliant advertising. I have to give it up to the media, from hollywood to the music industry. This man's whole campaign was nothing more than pop culture pushed, feel good, bullshit.

    He had nothing to run on that qualified him for president. Nothing.
