    AP Poll: Obama Disapproval Rises to 59 Percent, A New High.....

    Obama is starting to really take a dive. Even the World Opinion of the US under Obama. This is good news for the Election as the Dems could end up losing far more than they thought. Obama appears totally out of touch.....again! What say ye?





    Nearly six in ten Americans now disapprove of President Obama's job performance, with just 41 percent giving him a thumbs-up. That's the top line result of a new Associated Press national poll, representing Obama's worst performance in the history of the survey. Obama didn't fare any better on most issues, earning poor marks on his handling of the economy (39/59), the federal budget (36/63), immigration (38/61), and foreign affairs (40/58). The survey reveals a sharp deterioration in the president's personal favorability, which dropped to (42/51). Bizarrely, the AP appears to not have asked any questions about Obamacare, despite any number of news hooks -- including the impending (but extended) enrollment deadline.



    CBS News' latest poll did ask about Obamacare, however. It showed public approval of the health law underwater (41/53), the exact same margin as this week's brutal Morning Consult poll. That survey noted that undecided likely 2014 voters disapprove of Obamacare by a 40 point margin. Obama is upside-down on healthcare approval (40/56) in the CBS poll, in which respondents said the current healthcare sign-up process is going poorly by nearly a two-to-one margin. A fresh Fox News poll also contains unwelcome news for the White House, with Obama's overall job approval sucking wind at (40/53).

    A 52 percent majority of respondents say the US has gotten "weaker and less powerful" over the last five years, with only 17 percent stating that we've become "stronger and more powerful." The CBS poll also showed a 43 percent plurality agreeing that world opinion of the US has deteriorated under President Obama, with less than a third saying it's improved.....snip~

    It's no surprise to me that Obama's unfavorables are increasing. When Pelosi and other dimwits are turning up their rhetoric for November damage control, it's desperation time. I think we'll see more of a free fall in the summer when advertising will ramp up against Democrats.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You are completely correct. Up until now, the political right has pretty much been standing by and watching the left self-immolate.

    It may be time for Harry to see his doctor. I'm questioning his mental capacity.

    Yeah, I figure once Pero gets in he will check it out. He has been staying on top of polls and Senate races. I have been giving him something to check out too. Still the more and more Obama plummets. The more some of those House Democrats will start pulling away. Especially if they see stuff like now......Where it is Obama himself that is causing the drop.

    AP Poll: Obama Disapproval Rises to 59 Percent, A New High - Guy Benson
    Here is what RCP has.

    Overall approval rating:

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    on the Economy:

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval - Economy

    On foreign policy:

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval - Foreign Policy

    And the health care for/against polls:

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Public Approval of Health Care Law

    Each link has six or more polls. So let whomever make up their own minds as to which polls they want to take as fact. As I stated before, I like the RCP averaging. A skewed poll is averaged into the mix and the results are about as pure as one can get.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This must be what Obama meant by hope and change. Historically an unpopular president is a liability in mid term elections, this november is really going to sting for dems.

    1 FIVE ADDITIONAL CRITERIA FOR PREDICTION NOVEMBERS ELECTIONS BESIDES THE POLLS

    President Obama’s approval rating of below 45%: The president’s low water mark of 39% was hit in December of 2013. Since then his approval rating has rose slowly to 44% which was hit the last week of February. But as of today the president is at 42.6. The president’s approval rating is always a good indication on how well his party will do in the upcoming election. Anything at or below 45% usually means the party out of power will have huge gains in the upcoming election.

    ACA gap of 15 points in the against/oppose side over the favor/pro ACA side: Today the gap is 13.1. This is not quite where it should be to indicate any huge gains. But it is close enough to say the GOP will increase what they have in both chambers of congress.

    Generic congressional poll, the Republicans must have a lead over the Democrats of 5 points or better: Today the Democrats lead by 2 points 42-40%. This indicator pretty much says we will have a status quo election where either party can gain or lose 5 seats in the house. It contradicts the first two indicators.

    Party Favorability/unfavorability, the Democrats must be seen in a worst light than the Republicans. But today with all voters the Republicans have a 33% favorable rating vs a 61% unfavorable. The Democrats have a 42% favorable/53% unfavorable which seems to tilt the November election in the Democrats favor. But more important than all voter is how independent voters see the two parties. Independents make up 45% of the electorate. Among Independent voters the Republicans stack up at 31/60% vs. the Democrats at 30/61%. This gives us our second status quo indication for the upcoming election.

    Party affiliation/identification Republicans must have a 5 point lead as they did in 2010 when counting those who identify with each party plus those independents which lean towards each party: Today the Democrats have a 5 point advantage, down two points from last month.

    Identify as Democrats 30%
    Independents lean Democrat 17% Total 47%
    Identify as Republicans 25%
    Independents lean Republican 17% Total 42%

    Conclusion: with only 2 of the 5 criteria in place for the Republicans, 2 favoring a status quo election and the last one favoring the Democrats, do not expect another 2010 or whole sale changes in congress. Look for the Republicans to gain 3-4 senate seats, not enough to gain control. While the House stays pretty much with the same numbers it has today, 234 Republican, 201 Democrat.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line.

    Heya Pero .....you might want to see this. As I think it will help to push some out the door.

    Here Are The "Fixes" Democrats Want for Obamacare

    Writing in today's POLITICO Magazine, Democratic Senators Heidi Heitkamp, Mary Landrie, Mark Begich, Mark Warner, Angus King and Joe Manchin are outlining some of the ways they think Obamacare can be fixed. Notice how many of these Senators represent red states.

    First, we want to give consumers as many choices as possible when it comes to selecting their health plans. By providing a new, lower cost, high deductible option called the Copper Plan (in addition to the existing Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze-level options in the marketplace) we will give consumers more control over their own coverage, spur competition and, most importantly, increase affordability.

    We also propose directing state insurance regulators to develop models for their states to sell health insurance across state lines. These multi-state models will help us discern the benefits and challenges of selling health insurance in this manner, and determine if it is a means to increasing choice and competition among plans—potentially driving down costs while maintaining quality and value.

    Second, to ease the transition for employers, we want to expand the option for voluntary coverage for employers with fewer than 100 employees, about 98 percent of all businesses. This will enable small and mid-sized businesses to make their own choices for their businesses, and employees can shop for coverage on the individual marketplace.

    Finally, we simply want to make it easier for individuals and families to access quality health coverage by offering more than one way for individuals to enroll. We seek to provide a permanent path—in addition to HealthCare.gov—for consumers to seamlessly enroll directly through insurers, while improving access for the agents and brokers whom many families and small businesses trust and rely upon for help with these decisions.....snip~

    You can read the entire proposal here.....snip~
