Written by Gary North on October 29, 2014

From all the medias coverage, you might imagine that Obama’s approval rating is at an all-time low. That would be incorrect. In mid-2010, it was lower: 41%. It is 42% today.

Obama’s rating stayed in the 42% range until late 2011. Then it started to rise, peaking in the high 50’s in November 2012. Then it began to sink again.

  1. If you believe anything at all that comes out of the MSM, including fake popularity polls, you should sign up for Obamacare and avail yourself of the mental health services.

  2. Incumbents approval ratings are like the unemployment figures. No matter how bad the economy gets, the jobless numbers always hover just under 10%. It’s amazing!

  3. You have got to be kidding! Whose poll are you into or who's statistics?

  4. The joys of the Grand Illusion and the Great Pretender combined

  5. Looks like bullshit. How can tot tell anything besides a trend to disapproval by that jibberish graph?
