    POTUS approval rating dive

    Real Clear Politics Poll
    Obama
    Job Approval
    46.9
    Disapprove
    49.1

    Lowest I have ever seen it - are American's waking up?

    At least 5 scandels going on, prominent Dem politicians and liberals calling for Holder to resign or be fired. The administration is on the defensive and Obama
    having trouble pushing/promoting any of his 2nd term agenda. I hope many in government get canned or even prosecuted for their actions, (but unlikely), so
    will be happy if Obama is neutered and ineffective his 2nd term. 2nd term presidents usually become Lame Ducks, but it looks like Obama is getting an
    early start at it.

    Hope you're right. But I actually want to see Prez Obama go even farther out on his limbs with some of his agenda. Going to take a lot to really get some people out of their stupor.

    And lib blindness to what the rest of us really think and want makes it likely, imo.

    He's got a ways to go, yet, to catch up to Truman, Nixon, Carter, Bush I & II, even Clinton.

    I wouldn't hold your breath on the waking up part. :-/

    In addition to the scandels, I think by the end of this year when Obama Care really gets going and the full reality of how bad it is and and cost hits individuals, there will be a lot of really upset people.
    We are also seeing some Dem defectors on it, who are thinking of their future and unhappy voters. Should have thought of that when they voted for a bill none of them had read or knew what was in it.

    CL I know others have had bad ratings, but I am only comparing him to him and his ratings are taking a significant tumble. We don't need everyone to wake up, just another 10-20%. Most never will.

    I know, Buckshot. I'm just depressed that if we haven't woken up by now...

    Cl, I thought about it I think just another 5-10% alone would make a big difference. 10-20% is probably asking for too much.

    This doesn't really display our snoozing countrymen in a favorable fashion. No wonder freedoms have suffered so greatly if such high percentages need to awaken to staunch the onslaught of liberal socialist tyranny....Just think if they had paid attention all along as a preventive measure.

    Others have hinted about it: To me this indicates that we should be more concerned about the remaining mass of our fellow citizens who still won't accept that this bunch has no respect for the structure of governance given to us by our Constitution. Should we also be concerned that these stubbornly unobservant/unaware fellow citizens may also hold our Constitution in similar contempt?
