These are not good times for the Barack Obama. Everywhere he looks his support is sagging and failing. More than this, an oddity seems to be hanging over his head that can best be described as his 55 percent problem. The figure 55 percent is killing his career.
Consider the 55 percent problem that he has:
Poll: 55 percent of Americans Say Obama One-Term President:
A new ABC News/Washington Post poll found that 55 percent of Americans believe Obama will lose and be a one term president.
Poll: American Jewish Committee finding:
The AJC survey of Jewish voters found that while last year 55 percent of their respondents approved of Obama’s economic policies, now a stunning 60 percent disapprove of his handling of the economy. Last year, 55 percent of respondents approved of his policies toward Israel, now 53 percent disapprove.
Gallup Poll: Obama’s approval among Hispanics down to 55 percent:
The latest Gallup Poll of Hispanics reveals that Obama’s support has fallen from 66 percent in 2008 to 55 percent today.
In the September 13 special election to fill the vacant New York 9th Congressional seat, the Republican Bob Turner won with 54 percent in a district Barack Obama won in 2008 with 55 percent.
A Pew Poll from July said:
Among 18 to 29 year old voters Obama’s support is down to 55 percent approval versus 37 percent disapproval. While this sounds comforting, this 18 point spread is down from the 30 point spread Obama enjoyed at the start of the year. Last November the so called “Youth vote” went 55/42 for Congressional Democrats but was not able to stop the Election Night blood bath.
Rasmussen Poll on banning offshore:
Last spring a Rasmussen survey found 55 percent of likely voters oppose Obama’s 7 year ban on offshore oil and gas exploration and drilling.
A CNN poll:
Last month a CNN/ORC (Opinion Research Corporation) reported that Obama’s disapproval rating among all respondents has climbed to 55 percent the highest this poll has found thus far.
This man must see the number 55 percent in his sleep.
When Obama gets crushed next year, it will probably be a safe bet to play the number 055 with your local bookie. Clearly, 55 percent will be the death of Barack Obama’s presidential career.
