Gallup: Obama’s Policies are Unpopular


The poll is out. I find it curious, maybe even a little fascinating. “Americans Disapprove of Obama Policy on Nearly Every Issue — According to a Gallup poll, 42% of Americans approve of Obama’s gun policies while 54% disapprove. On taxes, 41% approve and 57% disapprove. On the economy, 39% approve and 60% disapprove. On ‘the situation in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians,’ 36% approve and 55% disapprove. And on the federal budget deficit, 31% approve and 65% disapprove.

“The only area in which Obama gains the support of a majority is on ‘national defense’ issues, but the poll was conducted before North Korea reportedly tested a nuclear weapon on Monday as Obama seeks to diminish America’s nuclear arsenal.”

So you have the North Koreans nuking up, the Iranians nuking up, under Obama’s watch, and we’re getting rid of ours. But, I mean, this is the Gallup poll. Let me give you the numbers again. I’ll just give you the disapprove numbers. People, Americans disapprove on practically every issue with Obama. Gun policy, 54 disapprove. Obama’s tax policy, 57 disapprove. Obama’s economic policy, 60% disapprove. Situation in the Middle East, Israelis and Palestinians, 55% disapprove. Federal budget deficit, 65% disapprove, yet the guy got elected and is running around acting like he was reelected with a supermajority and an accompanying mandate. He did get reelected.
