Some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 20% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 42% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –22.
  • Overall, 44% of voters at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance while 55% at least somewhat disapprove.
From a USNews article, by Paul Bedard, “President Obama's slow ride down Gallup's daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.”

That was only a matter of time. Congratulations, President Obama. Obama’s job approval rating, according to Gallup, is currently 43%. Carter’s, three years into his presidency, was 51%. Jimmy Carter’s arguable legacy as America’s worst president in modern history has just been challenged by eight entire percentage points worth of even less approval by the American people.

Here are some past approval numbers from Gallup of other presidents one year before re-election:
  • Harry S. Truman: 54%
  • Dwight Eisenhower: 78%
  • Lyndon B. Johnson: 44%
  • Richard M. Nixon: 50%
  • Ronald Reagan: 54%
  • George H.W. Bush: 52%
  • Bill Clinton: 51%
  • George W. Bush: 55%
I’m not sure what Barack Obama intends to run on for re-election. He hardly has one leg to even stand upon. His first three years have clearly been deemed unsuccessful by the numbers above. He will more than likely further distract and blame. It’s all he has. And nearly half of this country will buy it. One set of numbers I always rely on to define exactly how divided this nation is shows that only 53% of Americans paid income taxes last year. Under the leadership of Barack Obama, what will happen when that 53% becomes 49% or 45%? 40%? How does a government function if 60% of its people are not even paying taxes, yet feeding with savage hunger off its teat? It makes no sense. This image is not America and Barack Obama deserves every bit of contention he has earned to be America’s new worst president in modern American history.

698.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day92.
