6 % believe Stimulus created jobs......who are the stupid 6%????heh

FAIL… Just 6% of Americans Believe Obama’s $787 Billion Stimulus Created Jobs

In December the Obama Administration announced they had “saved or created” 1.1 million jobs.
In January the Obama Administration announced they had “saved or created” 2 million jobs.
Too bad for Obama that Americans aren’t buying his “saved or created” nonsense.

Just 6% of Americans believe the $787 “stimulus” boondoggle created any jobs according to a recent New York Times/CBS poll.

I'm sorry I mean for this one to be posted in this thread ....so :

They've spent the last year talking about Obama being a secret socialist who wants to kill grandmother, who wasn't born in the United States, who is making common cause with the terrorists because he wants to destroy America.]

If I would do a poll and only ask republicans and "independents" if they approve of Obama then I would expect the numbers to not be that great. the bottom line is they are polling him every day and for the republicans to ask why this president hasn't stayed in the high 60% approval rating is absurd....
Considering that he was actually naive enough to waste time on bipartisan pandering instead of getting hard liberal legislation passed is beyond me....
Howard Dean Mr Obama needs you man.....

[bold]Obama hits an all-time low in poll[\b]

President Obama's approval ratings have taken a sharp turn for the worse, with more Americans than ever unhappy about his job performance and an overwhelming majority fearful the country is headed in the wrong direction, according to a poll released yesterday.
Obama's approval rating plummeted 5 percentage points from early last month, down to 45 percent, according to the Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll of 1,000 voters.
For the first time since he was elected, more Americans disapprove of Obama than approve -- with 48 percent giving him a thumbs-down. Only 45 percent approved.
Less than half -- 49 percent -- rated Obama as having "strong leadership qualities," an 8-point drop since January and a 21-point plunge from when he was first elected.

Do you have an opinion? (That's kind of what we do here in the forums ... we post opinions and/or questions
seeking opinions ... NOT just copy and paste.)

I've never cared one way or the other what some poll says.

Where is the proof that those polls are in any way without prejudice?

Anyone in here ever been polled?

How many people do you know who have been polled?

Her opinion was that in less than 2 years his approval ratings have plummeted
(at least for those who care). And they keep dropping... and dropping... and dropping...
I myself have never been polled on the question, but If I were, it still wouldn't help his
numbers any.

Ahh Polls, you got to love them.

Telling stupid people what to think since 1824.

This would apply to anyone that actually thinks that 1000 people not so randomly selected and who have nothing better to do than answer polling questions speak for the entire population of the US.

There is nothing more to read.

No background on the poll data or even a link to the cross tabs.

Thus again concluding that most people will affect this junk with out even questioning how they where able to come to the conclusions.

this is the back up for the Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll of 1,000 voters. it give age race and some other statistics about the people they polled. There are even some other poll questions.
I was told that there are 3 or 4 other polls with almost the same numbers. If i remember correctly Gallup and Rassmussen were 2 of them.

Ah, yes, polls.

I remember both Kerry and Gore leading in polls very close to the presidential elections they lost. Here in WV Obama was supposedly well ahead of McCain shortly before the election, but lost this state by a landslide.

So to put much weight in Obama polls more than two years away from an election he may or may not even compete in doesn't hold any value to me at all.

In fact, one of the reasons I voted for him was because I thought he'd be more likely to make decisions based on what he thought was right and best for the country and world from the perspective only someone in his position can have rather than based on what the average joe thinks who only knows what headlines and pundits say to base their approval or disapproval on.

How many of you based your vote on how either candidate would respond to the largest oil spill in our country's history?

I made clear before the election that I vote based on my best interpretation of how a candidate will react to inevitable challenges we can't predict when casting our votes, not so much where they stand on the issues of the moment when I'm voting.

I don't agree with everything Obama has done so far, but I'm not sitting where he is, and there remains much I do agree with. If the election were to be held again today he'd still get my vote.

I think I have a faint memory of that former poster Calisto.... I think she like most other tea party,anti-immigration but excusing the people who attract them here by paying them low wages.....lover of the good ole days pre 1964 america had a picture of her and her lovely cats...claimed to be an independent voter who voted for Bush twice...
whatever happened to her....she was the master of polls and getting people exiled who confronted her skewed polling and anti-obamaism.....

Ah, yes... the "Democrat" who never voted for Bush or Obama, but opposed everything the Dems did and defended everything the Reps did. It was always "interesting" how things "seemed" to her...

I like to believe in polls... especially after taking classes that explain how they work... I get that they are accurate only to about 5 percentage points... or are they?

Some polsters only call land lines... meaning they get callers who are more wealthy, white, old, and female...

Others call everyone... which gets them poorer, minority, young, and female people more often than anyone else...

The first real question is... how much does this affect polling... if the polster knows, and has no agenda on schewing the results... then they must find that and adjust it...

The second real question is... did they adjust it right?

Polling on the president now is kind of pointless... there is still a full year and a half before it really matters. As a liberal, I sort of hope that the Tea Party elects a few crazy republicans this year, and that they make such a loud noise ugly enough so that democrats get excited for the next election. Beyond a dark horse, nobody can beat Obama in 2012.

GM debacle? Who is upset that GM was saved? I never hear anyone upset about that in real life... and I'm in GA! a redist of red states!

Undoing Rice's years of work??? bad... no... Even people here is GA like Clinton as Secretary of State... she's never been more popular... heck if Obama tanks... She might actually have a chance in 2012 if President Obama had to resign for some crazy reason

lol... keep dreaming right-wingers... you are your own worst enemies... if you win... you loose

So how many records of Bush Will Obama break... It took GW about 5 years to start dipping below the 50% mark.
I wonder how many other presidents had average disapporval ratings of over 50% in less than 2 years with them still falling.

RCP Average 7/13 - 8/9 -- approve 44.7 disapprove 50.1

One Bush record that is near impossible to break is his plunge from amazingly high approval ratings after 9/11 to his mid-20's approval ratings at the end of his presidency.

there is still a full year and a half before it really matters.

Yes, the poll that matters is in 2012. My prediction is that Obama will win a second term, but if a Rep gets elected, he will not improve things much, if at all. AND at that point he will be able to blame the Obama administration for making things so hard to improve.

Kinda makes me realize why the Reps ran such a poor campaign in 2008...

GW started sliding sometime after he won his second term. That means it took 4 years for him to slide that much, over twice the time of Obama so far.

Darth Vader has better odds of being elected than Obama has at reelection.

No, I'd put Obama over Cheney any day of the week.
