7 of 10 in All Age Groups Disapprove of Obama

The latest Harris Poll finds that Obama’s rating on the economy has fallen to its lowest level yet. The new data contains nothing but bad news for the Democrats as we approach the November 2nd elections.
73% of Americans now rate Obama negatively on the economy, compared to 71% in September, 68% in August and 64% in May. Only 30% of the public expects that the economy will improve in the next year, and only 22% believe that their own household’s finances will be better in six months time.
These are some of the results of The Harris Poll of 3,084 adults surveyed online between October 11 and 18, 2010 by Harris Interactive.
Other interesting findings include:
In addition to the large majorities of Republicans (92%) and Independents (78%) who give Obama negative ratings on the economy, fully 51% of Democrats do so, as well;
At least 7 in 10 of all generations give Obama negative ratings on the economy, including 70% of people aged 65 and over, the generation that usually has the highest turnout in mid-term elections.
Almost three-quarters (72%) of Echo Boomers (those aged 18-34) also give Obama negative ratings (and these were some of his strongest supporters during his presidential campaign);
While most people have very negative views on the economy, 30% think it will get worse — the same number as think it will get better –in the next year. 2 in 5 Americans (40%) believe that the economy will stay the same in the coming year;
Few people accept the official view that, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the recession ended in June 2009. Indeed, only 6% of all adults believe that the recession is over. A slender majority (54%) believes that the “recovery has started but the recession is not over” and 33% believe that the “recovery has not started.”

If there’s more ACORN multi-registered voter action and Demo-rats win, there’ll be trouble. If you’ve got anything you might want to buy, do it now before November 2nd (just saying).

This morning on Fox, (I didn’t catch who it was) was stating that 47% of Americans would vote for Obama again so Republicans are too soon in proclaiming victory. All we can do is pray. I’m afraid what might happen if Conservatives don’t take control of the House and Senate.

That would be the same 47% who don’t pay any taxes (what a coincidence, eh?).
