More Than Twice as Many Americans “Strongly Disapprove” of Obama as “Strongly Approve”

Americans Have Lost Faith

Polls have previously shown:

  • Congress is less popular than zombies, witches, dog poop, potholes, toenail fungus, hemorrhoids, cockroaches, lice, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams, used car salesmen, Genghis Khan, Communism, North Korea, BP during the Gulf Oil Spill, or Nixon during Watergate

A new Gallup poll shows that more than twice as many Americans “strongly disapprove” as “strongly approve” of Obama:

President Barack Obama's Approval Ratings, by Intensity

The poll also shows that almost twice as many Americans strongly approved of Obama in July 2009 as do today … his “strongly approve” rate plummeted from 32% to 17%.

Why is Obama so unpopular?

Because – as horrible as Bush was – Obama is worse than Bush in favoring the super-elite, bailing out the big banks, protecting financial criminals, targeting whistleblowers, keeping government secrets, trampling our liberties and starting military conflicts in new countries.

Obama is even worse than Bush in redistributing wealth from the American people to a handful of fatcats and spying on Americans.

Obama is also worse than Bush in appointing cronies to powerful government positions.

Americans now realize that Obama is not following the will of the people.

Moreover, having a sell-out president Obama after a sell-out president Bush has shown the people that neither mainstream parties represents them.

Indeed, both the mainstream Republican and Democratic parties are virtually identical regarding core issues including:

Any apparent difference is just a scripted show.

Under both Republican and Democratic politicians, both the rule of law and free market capitalism have been trashed.

In reality, we no longer have free market capitalism. Instead, we have socialism for the rich and sink-or-swim capitalism for everyone else.   Conservatives see the socialism half of this equation, and liberals see the laissez faire free market half. Both liberals and conservatives hate crony capitalism. Look here, here, here.

People have lost faith in the 2 party system.

    Please. Don’t you have to pretend to believe something you don’t in order to be a sellout? I don’t recall Bush doing that. We all knew he was going to do atrocious things when he got elected. Bush didn’t sellout. He did exactly what was expected of him. That’s not selling out. That is carrying out the wishes of his party’s constituents. Obama, on the other hand, did exactly the opposite of what he promised. Now that’s selling out. Big time.

    • Bush did promise during the 2000 election to make sure decent police officers get the pay and respect they deserve while holding the bad ones accountable, but I don’t believe he ever did that once he was elected.

        Yeah. I agree with the rest of the post. I don’t know why Washington Blog keeps making these, albeit minor, false equivalencies between Democrats and Republicans. It is important not to do this. It obscures the scope of the Democratic party’s betrayal of its constituency epitomized by Obama.

    This needs to be posted on every site possible. Send it out to alternative media sources so that people wake up. Both parties suck, and our only hope is to come together on some stuff. United we stand, Divided we fall. The mainstream media and government thugs tried to use Furgeson to start a race war, when in actuality there were plenty of white people marching too and the video’s are being posted. So if we want to defeat the criminal government we need to come together. We need to realize most of us want the same things. Opportunity and opportunities for our children. We do not want to be in perpetual war. We want our tax dollars spent at home repairing schools and infrastructure not building more weapons or funding CIA excursions to topple governments, assassinate people, start revolutions and civil wars. And last but not least to traffic narcotics back into the country to keep supporting the police state that imprisons people in the phooney War On Drugs. I think we are all big kids now and it is past time to do a little house cleaning. I don’t want any bullshit that they can not release the 9-11 information they are withholding. All of these gifted technology people could start working on things to help us, not destroy us. The States can come together to make changes, it is a safe guard. Our time to use that option is closing fast though.
