Obama Approval Rating 37%, Congress 11% In New Harris Poll

Can you hear the crash? It sounds similar to a grand piano hitting the ground after the pulley gives way. It sounds a lot like two vehicles colliding in slow motion after one runs through an intersection. It sounds like my son when he fell and broke his arm. A Harris Interactive poll puts the Obama approval rating at a mere 37% just days before he’ll be handed a massive electoral defeat at the polls.

Within the poll you’ll find the usual, 90% of Republicans or Conservatives view the President unfavorably; what isn’t usual is that over one third of Democrats and liberals view the President unfavorably. Can you hear it?

The Harris Poll does its best to spin the results. Like throwing in the educational makeup of those polled. It turns out that those who favor the President most are those who have had more formal education. Post graduate and college educated individuals gave President Obama the highest marks while those with only high school educations or lower gave him a low grade as President.

Also within the poll, the fact that most Midwesterners and Southerners viewed the President in a negative light; what we’re to take from this is that those uneducated folks who live in the Bible Belt and in flyover country are too stupid to understand just what a great man we have leading our country.

Nevertheless, Obama’s approval rating of 37% is the worst he has garnered since coming into office nearly two years ago. It even took that rube George W. Bush a good six years before his approval numbers went sub-forty.

Not to be outdone, Congress only managed an 11% approval rating in the same poll. The MSM spinsters are hard at work.
