Looks Like Obama Needs His Own ‘Mike’s Nature Trick’ To ‘Hide The Decline” In Approval

I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.” — Phil Jones, junk scientist.

Looks like Barack Obama needs his own equivalent of Phil Jones and Mike’s Nature trick to hide the decline of his dwindling support.

Can’t Hide the Decline: Obama Hits New Polling Lows
Posted by Tom Bevan

Excluding the Rasmussen and Gallup overnight tracking polls, there have been seven major national surveys released this week. President Obama has recorded an all-time low job approval rating in six of the seven:

Quinnipiac 46%
Marist 46%
CNN/Opinion Research 48%
Ipsos/McClatchy 49%
CBS News/NY Times 50%
Bloomberg* 54%

Only one poll – FOX News/Opinion Dynamics – showed in increase in President Obama’s job approval rating over the last month. In the current survey, FOX has Obama at 50% approval, up from his all-time low of 46% recorded in last month’s poll.

The net result, of course, is that Obama has also reached an all-time low approval rating in the RCP National Average at 48.9%. Obama initially dropped under the 50% for the first time over Thanksgiving – he spent three days at 49.9% between November 25 and November 28.  After ticking up back over 50% right after the holiday break, Obama went under 50% again on December 4th and has remained there for seven straight days:

I don’t know why Real Clear Politics would exclude Rasmussen and Gallup.  They both say the same thing.  Rasmussen has Obama’s approval at 47% as of December 11.  As does Gallup.

When a president sinks below 50% in the polls, he is no longer speaking for the people.  He loses influence, loses relevance, and loses the ability to lead.  Not that Barry Hussein ever actually had the ability to lead to begin with.

As Dennis Miller put it, Obama has “smaller coattails than a naked midget.”

Obama – the Messiah of the whole wide world – is officially the lowest rated first-year president in American history, according that latest poll by Gallup.

Obama is probably so popular amongst the socialist-redistributionists of the world because they think that Obama will break his nation’s back by agreeing to pay “America’s share” of the $10 trillion wealth redistribution handout to the countries that hate us most in the name of “climate change.”

We already know that the man who said, “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” is yearning to impose an additional $200 billion per year tax on the American economy, and an additional $1,761 a year tax on American families.

More and more Americans are waking up and realizing that Obama’s hoax and chains actually means freezing in the dark.

They are realizing that the president of “God damn America” wasn’t just speaking in exalted metaphors when he said, “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”  He truly wants to undermine our lifestyle while he “fundamentally transforms” America.

Meanwhile, ObamaCare just keeps getting worse and worse.  The health care “reform” that was supposed to lower the cost of health care and save the system is going to cost $234 billion more (even in the first ten years, when we tax for ten years, and pay benefits in only six) and will literally cause 1 in 5 hospitals to go broke.

Everywhere you look, Obama and the Democrats are failing.  They are making things worse.  And I mean “Depression” worse.

I’m reminded of something I wrote just before the 2008 election:

Right or wrong, this is how I feel: I actually hope that if Obama wins, Republicans lose HUGE.  You know how, when you realize that your professional sports team won’t make it to the playoffs, you come to start hoping they lose so many games that they’ll receive a high draft pick?  I’m kind of there in my politics, given an Obama win.  The fewer Republicans there are to blame for the disaster that is going to overtake this country, the better.  The whole charade that has led to such anti-Republicanism has been due to the demonization by Democrats and by the overwhelmingly biased liberal media.  Let Republicans be so utterly rejected that liberals have no one – and I mean absolutely no one – to blame but themselves so that their ideas and their candidates can be vilified for the next fifty years or so.

And the American people are regretting their choice.  Last year, George Bush was reviled as the worst president in history.  But now, only 50% would rather have Obama as president than Bush, and 44% would prefer Bush to Obama.

Which is to say that George Bush is looking better and better (at least compared to Obama), and Barack Obama is looking worse and worse (even when compared to Bush).

Maybe Obama can get global warming scientists to say that the president’s approval is a matter of settled science, and the debate is over.

    I miss Bush. He may not have always done things I agreed with, but at least you knew for sure where he stood on issues, and he would do everything he could to make sure the issues he cared about were on teh forefront.

    Obama’s approval rating here seems like it’s about 110%. It’s frustrating, it’s like he is above reproach.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    Obama is in for a tough ride down. Reagan was in a similar situation, but he was (when his Democrat-controlled Congress let him) doing the right things. Obama is doing all the wrong things. The employment situation is not going to improve because employers are afraid of what Obama will do.

    Afghanistan is going to drag him down – and he deserves to hang on his own petard, after his attacks against Bush. His own base is angry with him, but he’s trapped by his own campaign rhetoric (making Afghanistan the “good war” to demonize Bush/McCain about Iraq as the “bad war”). We’ll see how good a war Afghanistan is, won’t we?

    Bush did what he thought was right, he had the courage to stand by his convictions, and he had what was best for the nation at heart.

  3. J.W. Wartick Says:

    I seem to recall Obama saying he’d be pulling troops out, not sending them in. I might be wrong, but I thought that was something he had explicitly promised.

    Dear Michael,
    I wanted to bring this info from Michelle Bachmann to your attention in the event you have not seen it.
    Thanks for all you do.


  5. Michael Eden Says:

    Obama made Afghanistan “the good war” so he could make Iraq “the bad war” without sounding like the same sort of cut-and-run coward that liberals have demonstrated themselves to be since Vietnam. It was John Kerry’s trick, too. So Obama demonized Iraq while saying that Afghanistan was the war that had to be won at all costs. He said that we needed to massively commit to Afghanistan, “the real war.”

    The thing is that we are now beginning to see the wisdom of the Bush administration. They kept Afghanistan in check, while concentrating on a significant region – Iraq – where they could truly achieve a victory. And in spite of the most despicable tactics on the part of Democrats, Bush succeeded. But now we will begin to see that Afghanistan is a completely different nut to crack. And Obama is going to flounder there.

    If Obama stays in Afghanistan, he will fail, and be shown to be a failure according to his own rhetoric. If he pulls out, he will a liar and a hypocrite according to his own rhetoric. And no president has ever deserved to hang on this petard than our Demagogue-in-Chief.

    I feel bad for our soldiers, having this pathetic incompetent make simultaneously self-serving and stupid decisions about their missions and their lives.

    I wasn’t able to get through the entire interview, but what I heard sure was scary. You’d think the country would be done with a wicked organization like ACORN. But apparently the Democrats are fine with an organization that has no problem helping to exploit young women (i.e., helping import 13 underage Latin American girls to be sex slaves).

    And that bailout bill is un-American.

    Michelle Bachmann is a dynamo who works for the people and works for conservative/traditional values. I’m glad she’s fighting, and wish there were a lot more like her in politics.
