AP poll: Disapproval of Obama hits 59 percent

By Mario Trujillo

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama's job performance in a new poll by The Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire.

According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama's job performance while 41 percent approve.

A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved.

Other recent polling has found Obama's disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent.

In the AP poll, only 40 percent approve of Obama's handling of international relations, a new low. The newswire notes that Obama's handling of foreign policy is usually neutral. 

Fifty-seven percent dislike his handling of the situation in Ukraine, where the Crimean region of the country voted this month to gain independence and join Russia. Russia later annexed the region after increasing its troop presence there.

Fifty-four percent said they dislike Obama's interaction with Russia.

The Obama administration has imposed sanctions on a number of Russian and Ukrainian officials who it found violated the sovereignty of Ukraine. Obama has also signed an executive order authorizing sanctions on some sectors of the Russian economy.

The president is in Europe this week as he makes the case for continued condemnation of Russia's moves, which the United States has described as a violation of international law.

About nine in 10 people support sanctions against Russia for its annexation of Crimea. The public is split on whether the sanctions should be strengthened or are about right.

Most people have no opinion on providing monetary aid to Ukraine. Twenty percent support it, while about 30 percent oppose it.

The poll surveyed 1,012 people in online interviews. It contains a 3.4-percent margin of error.

2% less of the folks that get government entitlements. Let's not forget the gift Obama gave of the Pigford entitlements. People getting huge checks for growing a sunflower in their yard. For past, black reparations of farming grants.  They will support Obama/dems, even if Obama announced he was lucifer himself.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Well, that describes roughly 25 to 30 percent of the population. But, when you factor in rampant voter fraud, an incredibly biased media, and a feckless Congress, thats really all Lucifer needs.
 
I don't know. Obama doesn't strike me as Lucifer. He seems to be more of a puppet doofus. No. Obama is not Lucifer. But he may very well be Lucifer's messenger to America and the world. He is here to show everybody what is waiting on the dark side. They either take the message, or they don't.
 
No one can now say, they were not warned.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
