Sunday, March 11, 2012

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19 (see trends).

Scott Rasmussen's new syndicated column takes a look at The Real 'Entitlement Mentality' That is Bankrupting America. It has nothing to do with greedy taxpayers looking for a handout and everything to do with a small group of people who believe they are entitled to rule over the rest of us.

For the third consecutive day, Mitt Romney leads President Obama by five points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. It is still, however, too early to tell if these results reflect a lasting change in the race or are merely statistical noise. Today's numbers show Romney at 48%, Obama at 42%. That matches the largest lead Romney has ever enjoyed over the president. Matchup results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. EasternRead More>http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll

Great numbers, but it's still way too early. If King Barack continues to slide in the coming months, I might take more interest in the polls since that might show a trend.

Realistically, considering what a disaster obama has been, I can't imagine why he's still a contender. His numbers ought to be scraping the bottom. That he's still statistically within a few points is unbelievable.

Nice trend but it still shows we have a bunch of morons that are clueless regarding O Blah Blah.

We're running the JV's because none of the Varsity wanted to play, or were asked not run to this time.

We've got a pretty sorry crop this go round. That, I think, is the only reason Emperor Hussein is still close, or leading depending on which poll you read.

At least so far in the race Romney hasn't said Obama is a good president but he would make a better one, I've been expecting it.

At this point in 1980 Carter had a 43% approval rate and 45% disapproval rating.

At this point in 2008, Hillary and Barry were still calling each other names.

All systems "GO" for Republican takeover in November.:adoration:

no sitting Pres has won reelection with >49% approval rating at this point in the race and Only GWB (49%) won with >60% I believe

I just hope that if he does win, the nation does also. I still don't trust him. Of course I'll go with the potential negatives of Romney before I'd vote for the proven fails of the current Usuper In Chief.

I can't find where any sitting President exceeded his approval rating in the percentage of votes. Usually, their approval number are greater than their voting percentage.

Example: Bill Clinton. Nov, 1996......Approval 58%; got 49.23% of the votes
G W Bush. Nov, 2004.......Approval 55%; got 50.73 % of the votes

I think -and this is only my opinion - what happens is that an awful lot of people sit it out in spite of having an opinion. In 2004, I think an awful lot of people rose up to vote against John Kerry. I know I did.

The Real Clear Politics average approval number for Mar 10 for Obama is 48.6%.

Life is good. Today.:smile-new:

This thread is giving me hope. Theoretically, if Hussein floats in the mid 40% range, then November could be a slaughter with him getting in the low 40% range.

Nobody deserves a whipping like that more than him. I wonder if his overinflated ego can handle it?

Around here, a few of the obama supporters seem to have amnesia. They don't admit voting for him any more.

That's the way it looks at this point, and he is busy accumulating piles and piles of cash because he knows his only hope it to try to bury his opponent in negative ads.

Which brings up a very important point: Negative ads don't work very well against Romney. For some reason, the negative ads bounce off Romney and they stick to Santorum and Gingrich.

I think that's because just about everything there is to say about the guy was said 4 yrs ago. I think somebody posted something about Romney somewhere on this board that was done by the McCain camp or someone in 2008. There wasn't much. It's as if squeaky clean obama is going up against squeaky clean Mitt.

Except that obama isn't squeaky clean. There's a lot of dirt on his back trail, if the GOP has the guts this time to dig for it.

I just dont understand how the polling can be so high FOR the StinkMaster. That media kool aid has got to be some powerful stuff.

Then of course we have a party who has a noticeably distinct record for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory to contend with too. Now I understand a top Mitt Romney adviser, Harvard economist Greg Mankiw is advocating $2.00+/gal gas tax hike. Is there anybody from Harvard that is able to find his ass with both hands, with a map and a flashlight anymore?

We arguably have the worst and definitely the most dangerous CIC in US history. Is this why the GOP (elite) insists we must only enter the ring gagged and with one hand tied behind our backs? Can you imagine the damage these clowns (the GOP leadership today) would have wrought had they been around when we were trying to gain our independence? I mean... its bad enough the extreme left has all the levers of power, so why in the world does the GOP want to coddle them? They must be destroyed!

We dont need a variety pack of left... with another left here, and another left there. And then a diff left. And then a harder left, and then a softer left. On top of the leftist left, we now have rightist left. And on and on and on to the left we go! Where the hell is the opposition? The contrast? The opposite? The principled? The constitutionally representative right in leadership?

This is sickening. I dont trust these poll numbers as far as I can spit. The man/child king should not even approach anything like 50%. And he prob wouldnt if the GOP would just stop manipulating our side for their own personal benefit/power regardless of the consequences to the country. And there will be consequences. I am pissed. Oh well... /rant.

And then stop and consider where the so-called center is today.

If we had a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being socialism, today the 'center' is about a 9. We need to get some tough, really hard corps people in office and swing this country back to about a 4. We've got them in Congress, but there are too many RINO's, too many weaklings and too many afraid to rock the boat and do some cutting and slashing of government. Too many who think more about losing an election than bringing America back to where it should be.

In Arlington, VA I've seen a number of Obama 2012 bumper stickers. But this is a DC suburb, with a lot of upper-middle class, government employed blacks, who seem to be the only ones that I see with those stickers. As the campaign begins in earnest, I think that Obama's support outside of his base is going to erode. Remember that the more time that Obama spends in front of the public, the less people like him.

You are absolutely mad my friend.

You never defined what 1 is, but we are surely closer to there. No politicians anywhere in the US even dares to question Capitalism, there is no substantial criticism of US capitalism as a system at all in our public debate.

I don't even know where to begin on this one so let's take it one by one. Please give examples of how we are a socialist country.

I'm starting to wonder if you are just throwing these terms out with definitions you've made up yourself, or if by watching Fox News and listening to right-wing radio all day you really believe it. I watch right-wing media too, I know how often the term "socialist" is thrown around.

I think you're right here.

Chuck58, why do you feel that America is socialist or right on the cusp of becoming socialist? What does "Socialist" mean to you and what are the indications that we are there or almost there?

Keep in mind that I may disagree, and you're free to believe whatever you please, but I am curious as to how you came to your conclusions here.

Actually, thinking on it, progressivism fits better than socialism, although both are just about locked at the hip.

I see it as a cancer that began around the turn of the last century or a little before. The ultimate goal is the destruction of capitalism and individual liberty. We're seeing it happen. General Motors is partially government and union owned. Banks, commerce, virtually everything is under the thumb of one or the other government agency. States rights are ignored, subverted and challenged.

Government is growing and becoming more intrusive. The Constitution is being circumvented. Citizens in the 4 border states have lost some of their 2nd Amendment privileges. Buy more than 2 firearms and Uncle Sam is notified as to what, along with the serial #s. By any name, that's registration - under the excuse that the guns, above .22 caliber might be smuggled into Mexico, that rationale from the very government that did that very thing. And, don't think if they get away with it here in the border states, it won't become national.

They're using the unions, illegal aliens, the unemployed, the underemployed and those who are simply unhappy, dissatisfied or who think they are to achieve their goals.

Since when has "criticism" of Capitalism become synonymous with actual or practiced Socialism?

I don't even know where to begin on this one so let's take it one by one. Please give examples of how we are a socialist country.
Government health care,
Massive government expenditures on entitlements for nearly 50% of Americans,
Government owned mortgages,
Government controlled/paid pharmacy,
Government Motors,
Government Education,,,

I'm sure if you feed your brain some facts once in a while, you might have a moment of clarity whereby you accidentally realize your government is not the same limited size and scope that is was originally, or as it was originally intended.
