Poll: 52% Say Obama Not Honest, 73% Want Mandate Delayed


by John Nolte 12 Nov 2013, 1:46 PM PDT

Brutal poll for President Obama Tuesday, this time from Quinnipiac. The president is upside down on approval, 39-54%. Quinnipiac notes that for the first time, Obama is seen as not honest and trustworthy by a not-at-all surprising margin of 52-44%.  In May, Obama was seen by 49% as honest, 47% said he wasn't. This ten point swing is almost certainly the result of the president being proven a liar with his "you can keep your insurance plan."

The president is also in the thirties on every major issue, except terrorism:

Obama gets a positive 52 - 42 percent approval rating for handling terrorism, with negative grades for handling other issues"

                38 - 53 percent on foreign policy;

                35 - 53 percent on immigration;

                32 - 62 percent on the federal budget;

                36 - 60 percent on health care;

                38 - 59 percent on the economy

ObamaCare is in equally dismal shape. Only 39% approve of the president's signature piece of legislation, a full 55% disapprove. Even women oppose the plan by a 51-41% margin.

Obama and ObamaCare have both dropped from 45% approval on October 1 to 39% today.

By a 73-20% margin, voters want the ObamaCare penalty/mandate postponed past the March 31 deadline. Only 29% believe the ObamaCare website will be fixed by the November 30 deadline, 61% do not believe it.

Only 19% believe ObamaCare will improve the American health care system, a full 43% believe it will make it worse. Basically, America has lost faith in the program.

As bad as things have gotten for Obama, he could always count on his personal ratings to defy gravity. Those days are over. His relentless lying about being able to keep your health insurance along with the launch debacle, have burst the media-created myth.

Obama hits lowest approval rating of presidency: Poll

President Obama has reached his lowest approval rating in any Quinnipiac University national poll since being elected president, with 39 percent of registered voters now approving of his job performance and 54 percent disapproving.

The numbers released Tuesday compare to a 45 percent/49 percent approval/disapproval split Oct. 1, before the partial government and problems with the rollout of his health care overhaul took hold. The previous low was a 41/55 split in October 2011 after that summer’s debt-ceiling standoff with Congress.



Nearly two-thirds of independents disapprove of the president’s job performance, and 91 percent of Republicans disapprove. Democrats approve by a 79 percent to 14 percent margin.

For the first time, voters say by a 52 percent to 44 percent margin that Mr. Obama is not honest and trustworthy.

“Like all new presidents, President Barack Obama had a honeymoon with American voters, with approval ratings in the high 50s,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “As the marriage wore on, he kept his job approval scores in the respectable, though not overwhelming, 40s. Today, for the first time it appears that 40 percent floor is cracking.”

“President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to the level of former President George W. Bush at the same period of his presidency,” Mr. Malloy added.

Voters oppose the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, by a 55 percent to 39 percent margin and are essentially split on whether Mr. Obama “knowingly deceived” the public when he said people could keep their health insurance if they so desired.

Almost three-quarters of voters also support extending the March 31, 2014, deadline for signing up for insurance without facing a penalty under the law.



The poll of 2,545 registered voters conducted from Nov. 6-11 has a margin of error of 1.9 percentage points.

Thirty-two percent of respondents identified themselves as Democrats, 26 percent said they were Republicans, and 35 percent said they were independents.

44% of Americans are either willfully ignorant or have cognitive dissonance.  Even if you support the guy, there is nothing honest or trustworthy about him.

Or, 44% of Americans have their heads entrenched inside of their anus.

I had to run errands this morning and had Wilkow on XM. He had only progressives who support Obamacare calling in.  We do have a LOT of woefully ignorant Americans.

The Progressives out there think any lie he tells that helps Single Payer come about is justified, and many of them don't think he has gone far enough.  Not ignorant at all...very dedicated to a specific cause.

Cognitive dissonance, then.  Willing to trust the liar, because they agree with the lie, and won't accept that it's really a lie since it's the truth to them.

It doesn't matter if Obama's support drops to 8% and it doesn't matter if 95% of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare.

The communists of the left will NEVER give this up, will NEVER concede defeat.

"Socialized medicine" is... well... the cornerstone of socialism.

It won't matter if there be lifeboats for everyone -- the 'rats will tie themselves to the deck rails and go down with their Titanic before they repeal ObamaCare, or permit it to be substantially changed.

This is everything they dreamed of for one hundred years.
Do you think they can give up that dream, now that they've won it?
