    Poll: Obama's approval hits new low

    The beginning of the end for Hussein Obama

    Poll: Obama's approval hits new low - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.com

    By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 3/30/11 7:57 AM EDT

    President Barack Obamas approval rating and prospects for reelection have plunged to all-time lows in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

    Half of the registered voters surveyed for the poll think that the president does not deserve a second term in office, while 41 percent say he does. In another Quinnipiac poll released just four weeks ago, 45 percent said the president did not deserve reelection, while 47 percent said he did.

    The decline in support for a second Obama term comes as his approval rating has dropped 4 percentage points since early March, landing at 42 percent a record low in the poll released Wednesday. His disapproval rating has risen from 46 percent to 48 percent.

    Polls, schmolls.

    Unfortunately, I have no faith in the American electorate. They'd vote for a mule if it had a nice smile and promised change.

    On topic.

    I place no faith in polling. Even if it supports a position of mine. I find them incredibly unreliable.

    And both sides only use them when its convenient, and then toss them to the wind when its inconvenient.

    There's only one poll that matters.

    Gallup still has his approval at 48% while approval is 45%. It's been pretty constant for a long while.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    How can anyone say this guy deserves another term? Even lefties are saying he hasn't been a good President.

    Mellie. Next year the issue won't be is Obama a good president or not.

    The question will be whether the Republican candidate will be any better.

    That is the real question.

    Man, I sure hope that American's don't keep Obama in just because they dislike the repub ticket as well. That would be pretty dumb.

    Technically it was, just like 2 years ago was the beginning of the end....Unless you think Obama will just abolish elections and declare himself supreme ruler or something.

    Why would that be dumb? Sometimes the lesser of two evils is the only choice.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
