CNN/ORC Poll Just Out Confirms Low Approval Ratings for President Obama...

Fifty-six percent questioned say they disapprove of Obama's performance, an all-time high in CNN surveys.

It just doesn't seem to be getting any better for the embattled President. Nice guy that he is, passionately concerned about finding that silver limning in the clouds for ALL Americans, it appears at this point in time credibility (and honesty) still remains important to the American people. Given the President's recent credibility gap (rightfully so) he certainly does have much work to do. It is looking like a Republican House, AND Senate may be within the realm of possibility following the 2014 mid term elections.

From recent CNN/ORC International polling.

Washington (CNN)As President Barack Obama's approval rating hits another all-time low, a new national survey also indicates that Americans say the President has less power than congressional Republicans when it comes to shaping events over the next year.

According to a CNN/ORC poll released Thursday, 41% of Americans approve of the job the President's doing in the White House, the lowest level for that crucial indicator in CNN polling. Fifty-six percent questioned say they disapprove of Obama's performance, an all-time high in CNN surveys.

The President's approval rating has now reached new lows or tied his all-time lows in polls released over the past three weeks from CNN/ORC, CBS News, ABC News/Washington Post, Quinnipiac University, National Journal Heartland Monitor, and NBC News/Wall Street Journal. And the CNN survey is the fourth non-partisan live operator national poll released this week to put Obama's approval rating between 40% and 42%. A CBS News survey released Wednesday showed the President's approval rating at 37%.

Geography appears to play a role in the President's falling numbers.

"The drop in Obama's approval rating comes entirely among suburbanites," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Compared to the October CNN poll, positive views of Obama held steady among people who live in big cities and rural areas. But in the suburbs, his approval rating was 45% a month ago but has dropped to just 37% now." {Read More }

Credibility Mr. President, credibility. Honesty goes a VERY long way in establising AND maintaining credibility Mr. President.

    Not great, but not as bad as Reagan's 35% approval rating at one time in his presidency. And that dismal rating didn't hurt Mr. Reagan one bit, did it.

    Gloating over a low approval rating makes people feel good, but this president has 3 more years to go, and that's an eternity in politics. I wouldn't be spiking the ball in the end zone just yet.

    Remember Reagan's 35%! And he's considered one of America's most beloved president..

  2. Who's spiking? Who's gloating? I just reported as it stands at present.

    I'm ambivalent.

    But it appears the left may be worried.

  3. It doesn't matter. Obama is in his last term. He now can fill the courts, thanks to the Senate. This is good news. He can do some good things yet and it doesn't really matter whether people appreciate right now or do not.

  4. Polls merely record transient mood swings of the public; I don't take them seriously.

  5. True (O)CT(O)PUS, we will just wait and see how much the rollout snafu and the President's misleading statements become entrenched in the minds of the American people.

    The President doesn't face re-election, many democrats do. Mid term election 2014 should be interesting, if nothing else.

  6. I approve. With some caveats, but he is certainly better than Mittens would have been... of that I am positive. If it were not for Republican obstruction I'm also positive that his approval rating would be a lot higher.
