    Obamas ratings dropping like a turd from a tall pony! The people don't trust him!


    President Barack Obama’s job rating remains upside-down -- no big change there. Yet for the first time in a Fox News poll, more than half of voters find Obama unlikeable.

    In addition, only about a third of voters say they trust the federal government, and most want Congress to continue to investigate Benghazi, the IRS, the government’s electronic surveillance program and the Justice Department’s monitoring of journalists.

    The new Fox News national poll of registered voters was released Tuesday.

    More voters disapprove than approve of Obama’s job performance on every issue save one: terrorism (on that the president receives positive marks -- 52 percent approve, while 41 percent disapprove).

    In contrast, majorities disapprove of his handling of the deficit (63 percent disapprove), the economy (58 percent), gun control (57 percent), health care (55 percent) immigration (53 percent) and foreign policy (50 percent).

    Voters are also unhappy with the president’s handling of the National Security Agency’s surveillance (61 percent disapprove) and the treatment of conservative groups by the IRS (55 percent).

    Overall, Obama’s job rating is underwater by eight percentage points: 43 percent of voters approve and 51 percent disapprove of his performance. That’s close to his previous rating of 44-50 percent in mid-June. A year ago the president’s rating was in positive territory: 48-43 percent (June 2012).

    Approval of the president has rarely been lower among Democrats (78 percent) and liberals (73 percent). And Obama’s 31 percent approval among independents matches previous lows established August and September 2011.

    The president’s personal popularity is down to 47 percent favorable. And at 51 percent unfavorable, this is the first time more than half of voters have had a negative opinion of Obama.
    The negative sentiment carries beyond the White House: 71 percent think the government in Washington has too much power, and 62 percent say he can't be trusted!

    • Yes, first the faux noise political network propagandists tried the 24/7 attack with "Fast and Furious" to no avail, and then switched to the "Benghazi orgy" in order to 'try' to sway voters in the 2012 election, but the only ones that swallowed this highly-partisan attack, were the fox parrots! No Faux parrots talk about the loser
      Ryan or the most loved, Hillary. "Thirty-four percent of registered voters said they view Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., favorably; 36 percent view him unfavorably".
      How soon you fox/rush parrots seem to forget that this was your ayn rand boy with the mormon cultist YOU picked for 2012, and I just don't see anyone else in the GOP with anything close to Hillary's popularity!
      Hint: Instead of incessant attacks on Hillary Clinton, you republicans need to find a candidate that has at least a little charisma for 2016, and none of the far-right tea potty extremism turning off voters!

    • Soi, some of the losers are waking up.. Good, but prolly not enough..
