President Obama has been steadily declining in popularity for the past 12 months, according to a new CNN poll.  One year ago, Obama held a 76% approval rating but has slipped by 27% over just one year, to only 49%.  Conversely, the President’s disapproval ratings have been on the rise.  From an initial disapproval rating of just 23%, this inexperienced President now has fully 50% of the population disapproving of his performance.

The winds of change are already blowing against President Obama for his re-election bid in 2012.  52% of Americans think he does not deserve to keep his current job.  In one year, it is likely that more than 75% of the country will be eager to see President Obama retire from office, rather than seek re-election.

It is no wonder that President Obama is becoming increasingly unpopular with Americans:  In his first year in office, he has shattered the previous spending records of all first-year Presidents by $3.5 Trillion dollars.  Of course, this spending increased our National Debt by about that same amount (how will it be paid down?).   There does not seem to be any effective accounting of where thousands of millions of dollars went.   Unemployment was at about 7% in January 2009, when Obama was sworn into Office; in just one year of his leadership, the National Unemployment Rate is now more than 18% and rising. 

President Obama is having difficulties in leading America’s war against the attacking Muslim Jihadis in Iraq and Afghanistan; his indecisiveness, pondering and overly restrictive Rules of Engagement (ROE) have killed many Americans and have shown the enemies that America is a weak, paper tiger (in their eyes).  As a result of that perception, Muslim terrorist attacks and attempted attacks are on the rise in America.  We are told that the passengers of the commercial airliners are a part of the National Defense strategy of this President.  Obama expects a family flying together on the way to Orlando, Florida is going to thwart a Jihadi terrorist attack (because Obama does not want to offend Muslims with behavior-based ‘Threat Profiling’ at airports).  Not much confidence in our President results from this attitude.

In the coming 12 months, it is foreseeable that President Obama will continue to fall in popularity among the people and Democrat members of Congress.  Likely, several members of Congress will distance themselves from President Obama’s shadow, as they strive to keep their $174,000/yr. jobs in the November elections, less than 10 months away.  It is possible that fewer than 25% of Americans will give President Obama a favorable mark next January.  If that is the case, perhaps the President will take that as a C-L-U-E and retire from the Office, instead of going on to an embarrassing defeat in 2012.  Now, there is ‘Hope’, after all.

    If it weren’t for all of the damage to America that Obama is doing, I would almost feel sadness for him, working as he is: out of his league and all. Obama has financially damaged America far more than the 9/11 Muslim Terrorist attacks did.

    I read that 600,000 people lost their jobs in December, 2009, thanks, President Obama.

    I just read that the big battle going on in Afghanistan is badly affected by the rules of engagement and the higher chain of command not allowing soldiers/Marines to use effective weapons on groups of Muslim Talibandits. And, the Taliban are using villagers as human shields. Obama must stop dithering.

    Thanks for the article. Makes me mad but I am glad that someone is writing this stuff down for others to read.

    Oh how the left love to bring up Bush’s approval numbers when they see their ephemeral leader tanking. True, Bush’s approval numbers were lower when he left office than Obama’s current approval numbers, but only after 8 solid years of vicious, leftist agenda-driven bashing by NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, NYT, WaPo, LAT, and other enmeshed members of the Press CORPSE (just using poseur Prez parlance). Can you imagine what Obama’s poll numbers would be if it weren’t for the Marxstream media’s continuous fawning, trumpeting, defending, excusing, glossing over, “white” washing, ignoring, and propping up of this missed-al-dente-by-30-minutes noodle?? The MSM is Obama’s personal PR quack cheerleading squad and they’ve been doing their very best to put a rosy outlook on EVERYTHING Obama touches, from purposely destroying the economy (so totalitarianism can save the day), to out-of-control spending and debt (again, so totalitarianism can save the day), obsequious (or rude if dealing with allies) foreign relations and policies (so other totalitarians can rule the day), suicidal Islamofascist appeasement (so totalitarians can rule the world), I’ll-get-to-it-when-I-get-to-it handling of the wars (see Islamofascist appeasement), sickening disembowelment of our healthcare system, countless “well-deserved” (and taxpayer funded) 5 star resort vacations and high-flyin’ date-nights and swanky soirées replete with Kobe beef and fois gras doggy birthday party cakes, to his union “negotiated” work schedule. Any sane, objective person would have to say the apples and oranges ain’t mixing here.

    Good article. Like Saints comment. WE NEED CHANGE IN GOVERNMENT. Wake up people out there, can’t you see the writing on the wall of what BO is doing to our country. Lets get back to the basic what our originial FATHERS wrote in making our country in 1776. Hopefully, we can turn our country around with new people in office. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. Get these lemmings out, particularly in CA.

    This so call president is a joke and needs to be impeached!!! The job for him is way over his head and he has no understanding of what’s going on. He needs to go back to community organizing, that’s where he belongs!!

    With all the crimes against the American people, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights he has committed since in office, why are we letting him stay there? He is obviously a communist with communistic ideals and communistic supporters appointed by him in the White House. Why are we not calling for his impeachment? Why are we not demanding he answer to the American people for his lies and tyranny right now? Why do we continue to allow him to be in office when he refuses to document his right to be in the White House in the first place, while working continually to take away the rights of the American people? Why do we take the risk that he might fix the election in his favor, by passing laws allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote? Why is it that he continues to destroy relations with allies and build relations with enemies and we let him stay? WHY IS HE STILL THERE? WHAT MORE DOES HE HAVE TO DO, AMERICA? Are we so afraid to let go of our dependency on the government that we refuse to take back the Constitution and our Inalienable Rights of freedom? Please, somebody explain this to me.

      Lori, Thank you for your comment. Barack Obama will stay in office until the House of Representatives impeaches him (can not happen right now, the House is majority Dem and supports all Obama does) or in 2012, at the next Presidential election. Contact your Congressman and put pressure on them, that is the only way to get things done.
