Hey, cheer up. Rasmussen still gives him "44% of voters [who] say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance."

Squeeze Aggies!

Tim said...

Not low enough...I'm still betting that 95% of those who voted for him in '08 are too dumb to have learned any useful lessons from this exercise in gross voting negligence.

MarkG said...

Imagine how low it'd be if he was a white guy from Texas instead of the jug-eared Jesus.

Great job Althouse:

First you put him in charge, and then you castrate him.

What are we supposed to do with him now?

edutcher said...

Rasmussen's approval index is at -24 (lowest ever). I wonder when the Demos say, "He's got to go".

-30, perhaps?

bagoh20 said...

I predict he becomes a white guy if this gets much worse.

Tiger Wood's tan has been fading too.

Paul said...

Who gives a whope about Obama's polls?

He is in the process of making Jimmy Carter GREAT!

Shouting Thomas said...

OK, Obama's still got garbage and Alpha on his side.

Where's the rest of that 38%?

Fess up, motherfuckers!

Pasture?

So what?

IF obama can't win? Then, as a surprise, a candidate will come out of the woodwork next June.

The GOP's candidate? Go ahead. Predict. I think the GOP goes first in terms of conventions.

Will it be 1968 all over again?

Isn't the democrapic convention gonna be down south?

In any case ... I never underestimate the power of the "schlemiel."

Underdogs in America tend to win, if they make you laugh.

"I predict he becomes a white guy if this gets much worse."

Well, that's one way for the far left to rationalize abandoning him.

Heart_Collector said...

38% Is a high estimate.

America's Politico said...

ALL POSTERS:

HEAR ME NOW AND BELIEVE ME LATER.

OBAMA WILL WIN EVERYWHERE IN 2012. HIS VICTORY WILL BE OVER 60%.

THE DAY AFTER GOP DEFEAT THERE WILL BE CALLS FOR A NEW-GOP.

GOP CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

I had to laugh last week when the media started using a 3 day moving average to keep his approval above 40%. It looks like they'll need even more creativity this week.

sane_voter said...

If there was any doubt that AP was truly a conservative moby, that last post eliminated it.

Sue D'Nhym said...

He still has the Morgan Freeman vote locked up, so he has that going for him.

DaveW said...

It is amazing it is as high as that with over 9% unemployment going into his 4th year.

Who are all these people that approve of him? More than his family obviously.

Bitter clingers I guess.

madAsHell said...

I can hardly wait for the post-Labor Day speech. That's the day his tele-prompter quits, and gives him a 3 word speech:

"I got nothin'"

...and then he ping-pongs from one teleprompter to the other, and it goes blank.

Crunchy Frog said...

I can't believe I'm about to do this, but...

Carol: The Dem convention next year is in Raleigh, NC. Purple state, one of the ones Obama needs to secure reelection, right? Only one thing they overlooked:

North Carolina is a right-to-work state.

The AFL-CIO is not pleased, and is threatening to withhold its funding for the event (traditionally about 25% of the total).

Oops.

Sixty Grit said...

Crunchy Freedom, you better tell the people in Charlotte that they now live in Raleigh.

Carol Herman, you illiterate fuck, it is spelled "shlemiel". KAPISH???

WV: sputti - what's her brain made out of? 'Sputti.

YOU ALL ARE CLUELESS. THE GOP IS WALKING INTO A TRAP BY THE POTUS.

REMEMBER (AGAIN, Nth-TIME):

POTUS OBAMA PLAYS THE END GAME. HIS TEAM *KNOWS* HOW GOP THINKS.

YOU ARE A TOAST. GOP LOSES 2012 MASSIVELY, SO MASSIVELY THAT IT WILL BE LIKE AN ASTEROID/COMET (e.g., what happened to dinosaurs).

THERE IS NO ESCAPING THE TRUTH: THE TOTAL DEFEAT OF GOP IN 2012.

WHY WILL THIS HAPPEN?

GOP FOCUS ON PERRY, PALIN, AND BACHMAN (OR GOP HATRED TOWARDS ROMNEY AND HUNTSMAN).

GOP LESS FOCUS ON NURTURING LEADERSHIP (MORE RYANS, DANIELS', CHRISTIES).

GOP IGNORANCE OF DIVERSITY AND DELIVERABLES.

ETC.

AllenS said...

38%? For the life of me, I can't understand why his approval is so high.

AllenS said...

How bad is it? America's Politico is starting to use all caps to make his point.

madAsHell said...

I say we continue to ignore AP.

Let's see how long it takes him to discover BOLD!!!

w/v:spinsupe - The spin supervisor!

avwh said...

YELL LOUDER, AP.

It makes your argument SO much more persuasive than your prediction of the GOP slaughter last fall.

Chuck66 said...

There are those that say he is giving up trying. He is just going to enjoy the perks of being president and let the Democrat activists carry his water for him.

See multiple vacations and golfing during a very trying time.

AllenS said...

obama uses golf carts, with a contingent of secret service agents, and doesn't spend any money on a caddie. What a cheap fucker. I'll bet that him and his wife, don't hardly ever tip. Ever.

edutcher said...

avwh said...

YELL LOUDER, AP.

Rasmussen has lowered Herbert's approval index to -26.

Time to scream, AP.

DaveW said...

When I want to scream and shout I use bolded italicized all-caps. Much more effective. I know that way people will hear me.

Roger J. said...

who can forget jug ears notorious speech about the planet healing and the oceans cease to rise--Ummm: ask the Tsunami victims in Japan about rising oceans, and ask the north east including Washington DC about the planet healing--Looks like mother gaia is fucking with jug ears.

PatCA said...

Mr. Gallup needs to be removed by the board of directors.

showbiz111 said...

Next media app for Obama's approval:

Hide the Decline!

Big Mike said...

Professor, do you have an "Obama is like Nixon" tag? Because if this keeps up he'll be down around Nixon's approval rating just before the guy resigned.

Trooper York said...

Hey he has garage mahal what more does he need?

Don't you get it? If you don't for him you are a racist.

Trooper York said...

He looked really Presidential while playing golf as the Washington Monument was about to fall over because of an earthquake.

I thought the President controlled Natural Disasters. Isn't that how W destroyed NOLA because he hated black people.

America's Politico said...

THESE GALLUP POLLS ARE ALL LIES.

I JUST HAD HAPPY-HOUR AT THE OVAL ROOM WITH SUPER, REALLY SUPER, K-STREET CONSULTANTS.

THEY TELL ME THAT GOP ARE SMOKING SOMETHING, REALLY, BAD.

I WAS TOLD TO RELAX NOT TO STRESS: POTUS OBAMA CAN WIN AGAINST NOT ONE GOP BUT ALL GOP CANDIDATES.

SO THERE. GOP IS FINISHED.

One Big Ass Mistake America!

AP says:

Yeah, and the DNC is a a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Can't figure you guys out at all! Party of nuance and all that, except when it isn't.

Joe Schmoe said...

@Curious George: Awesome link. Laughed my butt off.

Good one, Curious George. Of course not as funny as AP, but then what is

Obama's campaign theme song is going to be Aerosmith's "Love In An Elevator": "Living it up while I'm going down..."
