Backfire: Obama Approval Plummets During Gun Push


Backfire: Obama Approval Plummets During Gun Push

Just a week before the New Year, Obama enjoyed his highest approval ratings of 2012. According to Gallup, 58% of Americans approved of the job Obama was doing. Survey results released today by Gallup, though, show Obama’s approval rating has plummeted to just 49%. It is a dramatic drop, especially coming over a holiday period when people traditionally pay little attention to politics. Four years ago, at his first inauguration, a full 69% of Americans approved of Obama.

The drop in Obama’s approval from 4 years ago is understandable, given the sluggish economy and the hope American’s had as his presidency began. The considerable drop from just a few weeks ago is more puzzling. According to the media, he was the “winner” of the fiscal cliff negotiations, getting most of the tax hikes he campaigned on and avoiding spending cuts.

Also according to the media, he has deftly exploited the Sandy Hook tragedy to make a renewed push for gun control. This is supposedly popular with the American public and Obama has been all over the airwaves pushing his proposals. He even orchestrated a back-drop of children from across the country to release his proposals to the public.

    What does he care? He didn’t even need real votes for either “election”

  • CommonSense

    If it was ZERO, he’d still be happy & president of the Left-Wing Socialists Party

    Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star
    general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that
    would even come close to military leadership. He hadn’t even so much as led a
    Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon. So he
    is made the “Beloved Leader” of North Korea . Terrific!

    Oh crap! I’m
    sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing. We took an arrogant
    community Black African American organizer from Chicago, who had never worn a
    uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief. A guy, who had never had a real job in
    his life time, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN voter
    demonstration, and we made him President of the United States – – – – TWICE !!!

    I’m sorry I brought this up. Never

          • Nadine

            HAAA! Hardly!!

          • wminaz

            I bet he sticks the used gum under the Resolute Desk.

          • Nadine

            Does he even KNOW what that desk IS!!! Doubt it!

  • Buck

    Isn’t it just amazing how hypocritical Obama is, and the mainstream liberal media, who attacked the NRA for their commercial depiction of the hypocrisy of Obama for denying armed guards for public schools for the proctection of the children of common people, while his own children attend a school which has 11 armed guards, not counting the armed ‘Secret Service’ personell also assigned to guard them, by condemning the NRA for including Obama’s children in this debate over banning guns, while Obama uses children in the backdrop of him signing the 23 ‘Executive Orders’ that infringe on the 2nd Amendment rights of the people to protect themselves, by going the poor route of not hiring armed guards, like the ones paid for by the federal government to protect Obama and his family, but buying a gun and arming themselves, for the same protection that Obama gets for free. Where was the mainstream liberal media when Obama used those children to advance his unConstitutional agenda against the safety and security of those people who want arms to protect themslves, for the same reasons all the elite federal government elected officials are given that armed protection pro bono. Even Valerie Jarret, Obama’s personal advisor has been given a contingent of armed Secret Service personell to protect her. This nation has become a nation of ‘Haves and Have Nots’, but not in the sense of the ‘Rich Versus the Poor’, but more like ‘those In Government and those Not In Government’, which is much more prevalent and perversive than just the simple ‘Rich Versus the Poor’.

      Yes indeed, R-131, you have just illuminated the “new” American aristocracy–government bureaucrats, their ilk, the offspring of that ilk–people that seem to be so above us ordinary mortals. We are fit only to stand and serve, and to pay for their maintenance and upkeep–as well as their protection. We have no further use.

  • tt82

    the polls are wrong. It’s much lower than that.

    • violater1

      I think there is an article forthcoming of a 4 year study bye an animal protection group! The study results showed that his popularity is lower than whaleshit, located at the bottom of the ocean! Study also concluded that his personal make up was not human but is in fact defication of unknown origin thus his halfbreed coloration!!!!!
      If you should happen to have the misfortune to step in a pile resembling his color clean it off immediately and pour bleach on it to prevent others from evolving like the rest of his left wing followers for it seems that they all evolved from these piles! The white ones are from lying in the sun too long thus bleaching out their color match!

  • wildeagleone

    Obama doesn;t care what the hellhe American people think of him as he has enough self love for a lifetime, the narcisstic bastardo

  • billofrights

  • bhudda

  • Jay

    Who needs popularity when they’ve got power?

    • violater1

    I think every conservative should request a paper ballot in the next election and boycott the rigged digital voting machines! The stacks and stacks of paper ballots would be a lot harder to get rid of than digital 1’s and 0’s.

  • foxxybey

    Maybe people will remember Hitler and what he did and realize that another hitler was just elected and won’t live up to his oath of office, to protect the Constitution. A real dictator-in-chief.

  • gypsy314

    Who cares about polls our children are being killed in gun free zones because of cowards targeting gun free zones. Stop supporting liberal gun control idiots tell your elected leaders get rid of gun free zones so our children can live and we as parents can protect our children and self. I trust another parent before I would any more gun control laws and liberals.

      Read my previous post to Randy131, then ask your congressperson to pass only the part of the 23 items that gives budgeted money to law enforcement to put armed officers in schools!Better yet have yours write another one in the name of Wayne LaPierre giving money to law enforcement money for them to put officers in our school just like the existing School Resource Officers that exist in many middle and high schools in the South!
      ! Put them in all schools as well!
      Then write to and join NRA as a thank you gesture for his idea that will work! !!

  • Vic Bailey

    Bama’s Zombies would follow him off a cliff, they are all like Deer when the headlights hit them! All they can do is chant O BAM A over and over! Totally in a daze, unknowing what he has in store for them! Poor lost souls! Semper Fi.
