Obama Approval Rating at Record High … Among Muslims

Obama’s approval rating has tanked. In fact, he’s less popular than Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter ever were—and, of course, even the much-maligned George W. Bush was a superstar by comparison. But, according to a new poll, there’s one group of people who couldn’t be happier with Obama—Muslims.

That’s right, of all religious groups in the United States, Muslims love Obama the most. Seventy-one percent of Muslims are happy with Obama, in fact. And it’s not that hard to determine why:

  1. Obama just might be a Muslim.
  2. Obama’s foreign policy gaffs have been most beneficial to the Muslim cause abroad.
  3. Obama’s weakening of America greatly increases the chances that jihad and sharia law will be effective here.

Among other religious groups, Obama didn’t fare as well:

Catholics, on the other hand, have only a 44 percent approval rating of Obama, compared with 51 percent disapproval. Protestants and other Christians are more critical, with 37 percent approving and 58 percent disapproving.

Friday’s findings are in line with Gallup results on religious groups’ approval ratings of Obama since the beginning of his presidency — the relative rank of the groups have not changed in the six years Obama has been in office. The president’s approval rating in every group for the past six months has dropped 5-7 points from the average of his entire presidency.

Elections have become a popularity contest, so it’s no surprise, given Obama’s rising status as Pariah in Chief, that other Democrats are distancing themselves from him this election cycle. But are the American people waking up? I don’t think so.

It seems that most people are convinced that we’re stuck with whoever we get—that we don’t have a choice any more. No matter how low approval ratings get for Congress, the Supreme Court, and the President, Americans are still chugging along like slaves under a bad master. That saddens me.
