Obama favorability below all living White House predecessors, poll shows

President Obama’s favorability is now below that of all his other living predecessors in the White House, including former Presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, according to a new poll.

Americans were split, 49 percent to 49 percent, on Mr. Obama, while 52 percent had a favorable opinion of Mr. Bush compared to 43 percent with an unfavorable one, according to results from a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday.

Mr. Bush’s rating was his most positive since April 2005.

Former President Bill Clinton and former President George H.W. Bush each had a 64 percent favorable rating, while Mr. Carter had a 56 percent favorable rating.

Mr. Obama’s job approval rating is also back underwater now as more Americans say things are going badly in the country compared to March.

Fifty-two percent of Americans disapprove of how the president is handling his job, compared to 45 percent who approve. In a March poll, 48 percent approved and 47 percent approved.

Similarly, 52 percent say things in the country are going badly, compared to 47 percent who say things are going well. In March, 53 percent said things were going well — the highest share of Mr. Obama’s presidency.

About time!!  Guess America is waking up...finally, course, we ain't seen nothing yet......bad numbers will just "upset" him more.....Gonna get much, much worse for all of us....before he is done!

I am sure obummers ratings are worse that what is being reported.

Also sure that influential members of the elite MSM are on the payroll of the "white house" war room.....Jarrett and her 1000 secret Czars....talking to them every day...suitcases of our money as their rewards. 

No matter what Obama does, 45% of the electorate, the utterly clueless, will always support him. Does not bode well for what little remains of this republic.

I believe it is more like 52%.

Dunno Sgt.....think a more accurate number is 40 for us....40 for them....and 20 need to be convinced.....think we can do the latter.....if so...we will win....as we did in the House in 10 and the Senate in 12......get the White House in 16!!!! Only mission left for us. 

John,

Hope you're right.......but I seriously worry about the millions of illegals BO is allowing to enter at the border and his orders to DHS to issue them citizen status (via whatever govt agency does that)....and one can imagine how they will be instructed to vote.

Then, factor in the 1000's of Syrian "refugees' (Muslims) BO has authorized.

If the Appeals court continues to deny his Immigration fiasco...think he is in big trouble for all of his policies, now in place. What is coming down now and in 16 on the U...ACA...another massive blow to his efforts. So, he/they will not give up, but the tide is finally turning in our favor....against them. 

well that 47%%%% still worries me that's 47%%%% stupid,,people who do not have a clue

I still think it is closer to 52%.

It should be below ALL other presidents!

I'm surprised that our liar in chief is still in office. If he were not black and liberal he wouldn't be. That is NOT meant as a racial statement. A bum is a bum no matter his color.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
