    MEDIA FAIL: OBAMA APPROVAL PLUMMETS TO 37% Disapproval Rating is up to 53%

    MEDIA FAIL: OBAMA APPROVAL PLUMMETS TO 37%



    by JOHN NOLTE 9 Oct 2013, 6:01 AM PDT 1133 POST A COMMENT
    In today's edition of polls the media will collectively ignore, a new AP-GFK polls finds that Barack Obama's job approval rating has plummeted to 37%. The President's disapproval rating is up to 53%. There is no good news in this poll for anyone, but if past is prologue, this is the number the media will pretend does not exist as they attempt to manufacture a reality in which only the GOP is in trouble over the shutdown.

    Video at the Page Link:

    While the poll shows that 62% blame the GOP for the shutdown and "[a]bout half said Obama or the Democrats in Congress bear much responsibility," here are other important numbers the media will ignore in this poll:

    Both Republican House Speaker John Boehner and Democrat Senate Majority Leader share a dismal 18% favorability rating.
    A full 52% of those polled believe, "Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with Republicans to end the shutdown; 63 percent say Republicans aren't doing enough to cooperate with him."
    Obviously, there is a pox on both houses happening here, but the headline of this poll from the AP and other publications distributing it, including the Washington Post, is "GOP Gets the Blame In Shutdown."
    As for the number showing the public blaming the GOP 2-to-1 over Democrats, that is way outside what other polls released as recently as Monday show. While the GOP are receiving most of the blame, other polls show the spread between Republicans and Democrats is in single digits.
    Republicans shouldnít dismiss the number in this poll. It could be an outlier, or a trend. The media have been shamelessly lying and carrying Obama's water in this debate, and it is possible that the media's propaganda is having an effect.

    Obama approval rating plummets to 37% but the AP buries it in their report

    Posted by The Right Scoop on October 9th, 2013 in Politics | 48 Comments

    The AP wrote an article entitled Poll: GOP gets the blame in shutdown and started the article telling us how the evil Republicans are getting the blame for the shutdown:

    Americans are holding Republicans primarily responsible for the partial government shutdown as public esteem sinks for all players in the impasse, President Barack Obama among them, according to a new poll. Itís a struggle with no heroes. Ö

    Overall, 62 percent mainly blamed Republicans for the shutdown. About half said Obama or the Democrats in Congress bear much responsibility.


    As we read down we learn that they Tea Party is far larger than the Democrats are making it sound with their demonizations:

    The poll found that the tea party is more than a gang of malcontents in the political landscape, as its supporters in Congress have been portrayed by Democrats. Rather, itís a sizable ó and divisive ó force among Republicans. More than 4 in 10 Republicans identified with the tea party and were more apt than other Republicans to insist that their leaders hold firm in the standoff over reopening government and avoiding a default of the nationís debt in coming weeks
    .


    Hello, you needed a poll to tell you that after 2010? Geez.

    And then about 7 paragraphs down they drop this bombshell:

    Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it
    . Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent
    .


    Wow. Iím sure the media will have a field day with this one! Theyíll be announcing it from the rooftops! And Iím sure Wolf Blitzer will be announcing this at the top of every news segment today just like he did in 2006 when Bush hit 36% (h/t: Rush Limbaugh):

    BLITZER, MARCH 13, 2006: Itís 4 p.m. here in Washington. So youíre getting the first look right now at our brand-new poll. The presidentís job approval rating has taken a downward turn again, falling to only 36%.

    [break] This represents his lowest rating ever in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

    [break] The presidentís poll numbers are pretty bad, pretty awful right now, rock bottom as far as the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

    [break] The presidentís Iraq problem and his new low point in the polls.

    [break] His approval and policies now are at new lows.

    [break] The presidentís job approval number in this new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, rock bottom, the lowest itís ever been.

    [break] Itís 5 p.m. here in Washington where President Bush takes a beating in our latest poll. His approval rating at a low ebb.

    [break] Our latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll just out in the past hour shows the president at an all-time low.

    [break] His job approval rating at a new low.

    [break] Thatís rock bottom as far as our poll is concerned.

    [break] Itís 7 p.m. here in Washington. The war in Iraq comes home to roost for President Bush. Our latest poll numbers showing his approval rating at a new low.

    [break] Also: President Bush hits a new low in the polls.

    [break] Now back to our lead story: President Bushís approval rating now at an all-time low.

    [break] As we noted, a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll shows his job approval rating at a new low.

    [break] President Bushís approval rating at a new low, 36%.


    Nah, nothing to see here because weíre looking at this backwards. Itís not whether the American people approve of the president that matters, but whether Obama approves of the American people.

    Ronald Reagan also said "As government expands liberty contracts." Have that saying posted on my refrig. He also was a uniter, not a divider which is what we have now.

    Imo with such low approval numbers for the current president the people are more informed than the lamestream media choses to report which is a good sign.

    Obama Approval Down to 37% and Republicans Still Think They're Losing?

    October 09, 2013

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: So Bo Snerdley walks into my compound here, broadcast facility, oh, I guess about an hour ago. And he's somewhat stuttering, trying to pay me a compliment. He says, "How did you... I mean, well, I know you know, but how did you... how did you..." I said, "What are you talking about?"

    "How did you know we were winning this?" He had just seen the AP story with Obama's approval rating at 37%.

    Grab sound bite number two. Barack Obama's approval rating at 37%. That fact is in an AP story. Would you like to hear the headline of that AP story? I have it right here my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. "Poll: GOP Gets The Blame In Shutdown." And then if you read the story, you find out that as an incidental item, the president of the United States' approval number is at 37%.



    This is before that insulting, juvenile, petulant, spoiled-rotten little kid press conference from yesterday, about which there was not one question asked about Obamacare and its rollout. Not one question in that presser yesterday. We have also learned that the Park Service and Obama okayed a pro-amnesty immigration reform rally on the National Mall that is closed to everybody else, including World War II vets. Nancy Pelosi and a number of Democrats, who are, I think, in a time warp, a bunch of them went over there and got arrested as though this is still the 1960s. John Lewis got arrested.

    Charlie Rangel got arrested, as though it's some badge of honor to get arrested. These people are totally tone-deaf.

    The president's at 37%. The shutdown is going on. Now we learn that five military families were insulted profoundly with the way the deaths of their service member relatives were treated. Folks, it is obvious that this administration is acting purposely to inconvenience and to harm people it considers its political enemies. Why in the world, in the middle of this, when you're losing, why call that press conference yesterday and why go out there and keep saying, "I'm willing to negotiate" and this sort of thing, why do that on the same day that you are permitting -- I mean, you talk about a thumb in the eye.

    You talk about almost being spat upon to allow the closed -- because of the shutdown -- National Mall to open up for a pro-amnesty immigration rally. The people allowed in there were illegal. They were not American citizens.

    Meanwhile, outside the fences, not permitted in, American citizens, World War II vets and their families are not allowed to go to the World War II Memorial. And the Democrats and the media and the president somehow think that this is adding up to their benefit? Here's Pelosi yesterday. Grab sound bite 13. This is Pelosi yesterday on the National Mall during a rally in favor of amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform.

    PELOSI: I want to join my colleague, uh, uh, who, uh -- thank the president for enabling us to gather here and also thank the president that the veterans were able to gather at the World War II Memorial.



    RUSH: They weren't! They weren't. It was shut down. They were not able to. The rollout of Obamacare continues to be an absolute disaster. Even the Washington Post and CBS News are now writing and broadcasting what a debacle the rollout of Obamacare is and that website. I've got an open letter that a 26-year-old female grad student from the University of Michigan wrote about how Obamacare has destroyed her future and the future of everybody her age.

    Meanwhile, if you are a conservative media guy inside the Beltway you're convinced that Obama's winning everything. If you're a conservative media guy inside the Beltway and you're subjected to that narrative each and every day, you think the Republicans are really getting shellacked. You think they're taking it on the chin. You think, as John Podhoretz writes in the New York Post today, Republicans are committing suicide. It's the exact opposite. It's the exact opposite of what's happening outside the Beltway.

    I want to go back, ladies and gentlemen. I want to go back to March 13th of 2006. This is from our all-time top five favorite audio sound bites. Wolf Blitzer, barely able to contain himself, March 13, 2006, CNN, The Situation Room, his show. Unable to contain himself. George W. Bush's approval rating had just hit 36%.



    BLITZER, MARCH 13, 2006: It's 4 p.m. here in Washington. So you're getting the first look right now at our brand-new poll. The president's job approval rating has taken a downward turn again, falling to only 36%.

    [break] This represents his lowest rating ever in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. [break] The president's poll numbers are pretty bad, pretty awful right now, rock bottom as far as the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. [break]

    The president's Iraq problem and his new low point in the polls. [break]

    His approval and policies now are at new lows. [break]

    The president's job approval number in this new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, rock bottom, the lowest it's ever been. [break] It's 5 p.m. here in Washington where President Bush takes a beating in our latest poll.

    His approval rating at a low ebb. [break]

    Our latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll just out in the past hour shows the president at an all-time low. [break]

    His job approval rating at a new low. [break]

    That's rock bottom as far as our poll is concerned. [break]

    It's 7 p.m. here in Washington. The war in Iraq comes home to roost for President Bush. Our latest poll numbers showing his approval rating at a new low. [break]

    Also: President Bush hits a new low in the polls. [break]

    Now back to our lead story: President Bush's approval rating now at an all-time low. [break]

    As we noted, a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll shows his job approval rating at a new low. [break]

    President Bush's approval rating at a new low, 36%.

    RUSH: None of those repeated. All of that was said in a three-hour stretch. Wolf Blitzer on March 13th, 2006, when Bush's approval number hit 36%.

    Today Barack Obama's approve number's at 37%, and they are not talking about it.

    The AP story in which that poll result is announced has the following headline: "Poll: GOP Gets The Blame In Shutdown." They have a poll that shows that 71% of the American people are blaming the Republicans for the shutdown. In the same poll, 50% are blaming the Democrats for something, but the media says, "Look, 20% spread, boy, the Republicans are really taking it on the chin for the government shutdown." But the poll does not say people are upset with the shutdown.

    But that's not the point. The point is, once again, there is no media, there is no news. This is the Democrat Party with activists disguised as journalists. Thirty-seven percent approval for The Messiah, "Barack Hussein Obama! Mmm! Mmm! Mmm!" And it's not some outlier poll. You have to read over halfway down into that story to learn that. I haven't seen it anywhere else. It's been on AP, but have you seen anybody else pick that up? It's just classic.

    BREAK TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: I just want to let you hear Wolf Blitzer and the way he dealt with Bush's approval number hitting 36%. I want to go back to March 10th of 2006 when Bush's approval number was at 37%, exactly what Obama's is today, in the same poll.

    And this is Ron Fournier writing for the AP, March 10th, 2006. " More and more people, particularly Republicans, disapprove of President Bush's performance, question his character and no longer consider him a strong leader against terrorism, according to an AP-Ipsos poll documenting one of the bleakest points of his presidency." That's how AP reported Bush at 37% back in 2006.

    That was after three years, maybe even six years, if you want to really add 'em all up. Let's just say three, when the Iraq war started. That was after three years of a daily, relentless pounding of Bush by the Drive-By Media.

    Daily characterizations of Bush as an idiot, as incompetent, as irresponsible, as stupid, as a buffoon. We were heading into a recession. It took 'em three years to get Bush down to 37%. And when they got to 37%, they celebrated.

    Here's more from Ron Fournier back on March 10th of 2006. "The poll suggests that most Americans wonder whether Bush is up to the job. The survey, conducted Monday through Wednesday of 1,000 people, found that just 37 percent approve of his overall performance.

    That is the lowest of his presidency. ...

    Republican Party leaders said the survey explains why GOP lawmakers are rushing to distance themselves from Bush on a range of issues -- port security, immigration, spending, warrantless eavesdropping and trade, for example."

    Those were the issues that the Republican Party, it was said by AP, was running away from George W. Bush: port security, immigration, spending, warrantless eavesdropping, which can't even hold a candle to what Obama has been doing on any of those issues. And then Fournier said, "Personally, far fewer Americans consider Bush likable, honest, strong and dependable than they did just after his re-election campaign." The headline was: "Bush's Approval Rating Falls to New Low." Obama's at 37% today in an AP poll, and the headline is: "GOP Blamed for Shutdown." It's journalistic malpractice, except it's not because it's not journalism. It's not what we're even talking about here.

    Shutdown Fallout: Obama Approval Rating Slides to 37 Percent

    Guy Benson | Oct 09, 2013




    A senior White House official told the Wall Street Journal that the administration doesn't really care when the shutdown ends because they're "winning" the <acronym title="Google Page Ranking">PR</acronym> fight against the GOP. While it's true that Republicans are absorbing more blame than Democrats for the dysfunction, the gap isn't especially wide, especially compared to the 1995 rout. Plus, voters are heaping opprobrium upon all parties involved in the squabble; most people are insisting on compromise -- which isn't helpful to Obama's "no negotiations" stance. The White House must ask itself if the presidentmay be"winning" in relative terms, but losing in absolute terms. A new Associated Press poll shows Congressional approval at five (!) percent, which is almost within the margin of error. The American people, needless to say, are disgusted by the spectacle playing out on Capitol Hill. Despite his efforts to play the role of an above-the-fray, frustrated bystander, Obama is also taking a hit from this mess. As well he should. Between his atrocious leadership on shutdown talks, which he's single-handedly blocked, and the ongoing Obamacare meltdown, Obama's overall job approval has sunk to 37 percent. For perspective, as he prepared to leave office in January of 2009, President Bush's approval rating was 34 percent. This ain't pretty:
    Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent. Indeed, anyone making headlines in the dispute has earned poor marks for his or her trouble, whether it's Democrat Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, or Republican John Boehner, the House speaker, both with a favorability rating of 18 percent.
    Nobody is covering themselves in glory here; the ebbing tide of public opinion sinks all ships. Other notable findings from the poll:
    - "Sixty-eight percent said the shutdown is a major problem for the country, including majorities of Republicans (58 percent), Democrats (82 percent) and independents (57 percent)." - "Fifty-two percent said Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with Republicans to end the shutdown; 63 percent say Republicans aren't doing enough to cooperate with him." - Just three in ten Americans support raising the debt ceiling, which is politically problematic for the president. A recent Bloomberg survey showed that a substantial majority opposes doing so in the "clean" fashion Obama demands. - More than 80 percent of Americans have felt no effects from shutdown.
    The first two bullet points aren't surprising. Nine days in, people oppose this shutdown and are unimpressed with the entire Beltway posse. A recent CBS News poll showed that more than three-fourths of the public want compromise to resolve the impasse. The debt ceiling stat indicates that people are profoundly and rightly concerned about our spiraling national debt, but don't necessarily understand the implications of not extending the government's borrowing authority. This combination of factors is most vexing for Obama, who is associated with debt in the public's mind, and has to convince people of why not hiking the debt limit could be cataclysmic while explaining why he won't negotiate over it. That last item may be the most important number in the whole poll. Despite the administration's appalling efforts (stay tuned for more on those later), the vast majority of Americans haven't experienced any shutdown-associated pain. At this point, the best play for Republicans may be to extract some concessions on the temporary budget -- as Boehner said yesterday, a "unilateral surrender" isn't happening -- then re-open the government with Democrats. These concessions could include a repeal of Obamacare's job-killing medical device tax and an up-or-down vote on the so-called Vitter Amendment. Or maybe something along the lines of Paul Ryan's "grand bargain" proposal, which disappointingly omits any mention of Obamacare. Some conservatives would surely see these as mere scraps and a capitulation, which is the dilemma Boehner and House leadership faces. But as I've been arguing for weeks, Republicans have some, but not much, leverage.

    Here's why striking a deal and re-opening the government would benefit conservatism at this stage: We're more than a week into the supposed apocalypse of partial federal shutdown, yet eight in ten Americans are carrying on with their lives, utterly unaffected. That may be because 83 percent of the government has remained open during the shutdown. Once resolved, Republicans could subtlely point out to their constituents that when the "DC disaster" struck, very little changed beyond the egregious stunts pulled by the Obama administration. Asking the public how the shutdown impacted them personally could underscore how over-hyped rhetoric from Democrats in Washington ("terrorists!") has little bearing on the everyday reality of ordinary people. In short, this episode could make average Americans more jaded and nonchalant towards these standoffs. Since the Left tends to lean most heavily on shrill predictions of doom and fear-mongering during budget confrontations, they stand to suffer most from an insouciant electorate. Allowing this shutdown to come...and go...with minimal actual impact may help the cause of limited-government conservatism in the long run. Democrats will squeal, and Americans will roll their eyes. They've heard it all before.
