Dictator Obama approval drops to 43 percent

Election bump over, Obama approval drops to 43 percent: Reuters


Less than two months into his second term, President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped and Americans blame him and his fellow Democrats almost as much as his Republican opponents for a fiscal mess.

A Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Wednesday showed 43 percent of people approve of Obama's handling of his job, down 7 percentage points from February 19.

Most of that steep drop came in the week to February 26 when it was becoming clear that Washington was going to be unable to put aside partisan differences and agree to halt automatic budget cuts which started last Friday.

Confounding the White House's efforts to blame Republicans for the cuts, most respondents in the online survey hold both Democrats and Republicans responsible.

Obama shot out of the gate in January at the start of his second four years in the White House, promising gun control and immigration legislation as well as efforts to tackle climate change and expand gay rights.

But Ipsos pollster Julia Clark said the survey shows Obama's honeymoon is now over, partly due to the "sequestration" cuts which will likely curtail public services like air traffic control and national parks as well as funding for the Pentagon.

"People are seeing things are back to business as usual in Washington," she said. "They are reading about the immense fallout this is going to have in terms of how it's going to affect the military and individuals."

Wild Thing's comment..................

I am glad to see it going down, but IMO it should be a flat line ZERO percent that approve of this communist.

Still, the sheeple would elect him again. His first term performance would have gotten any past president thrown out of office but not him. He speaks with the powers of the Antichrist with his ability to mesmerize the sheeple.

I love the use of "flat line," "omamabo" and "socialist" in the same sentence!
