Barack Obama won the U.S. presidency because of a majority of the black and Hispanic vote in 2008 and 2012 together with the twentysomethings, women, and an estimated 5-7 million white voters who stayed home. Now in the last sixteen months of his presidency Obama feels he can do as he pleases.
Thus, he side-steps Congress and enacts his ultra-liberal agenda that Americans do not want. The polling by the many polling organizations indicate, no matter how questions are framed, the American people are unhappy with all three branches of government, and the president.
Obama has no intention of allowing angry U.S. citizens to derail his prime concept of immigration change or other prime agenda matters. The president with the aid of zombie-like Democrat senators daily bypasses the Congress and issues his executive orders.
The president does so with assists from Harry Reid, in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House, as they stymie Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress.
Obama and the congressional Democrats fail to mention the impacts of massive numbers of illegal aliens on the ecology of the United States, including climate impacts resulting in environmental degradation. Nor do Obama and congressional Democrats appear to give one wit, for America’s decline in foreign affairs.
To this point, going completely unreported in the mainstream newsmedia is very recent Gallup polling data.
The latest Gallup polls reveal the angst in America. The persons seeking the 2016 presidential nomination of their party are failing to speak to what is of concern to Americans. The American voting population screams, Do something!
During June 15 through July 10, 2015, the Gallup organization asked Americans, should immigration levels be kept as present levels, increased or decreased. 38 percent of blacks said keep the present level, 30 percent said increase the level, and 31 percent said decrease the level.
33 percent of Hispanics said keep the present level, 36 percent said increase the level, and 29 percent said decrease the level.
Are you satisfied with the level of immigration? Gallup asked during Jan. 5-8, 2015 and all respondents answered, Very Satisfied 6 percent, Somewhat Satisfied 27 percent, Somewhat Dissatisfied 25 percent, and Very Dissatisfied 35 percent.
As of Sept. 9-13, 2015 Americans polled, 17 percent ranked dissatisfaction with government the major concern, up from 15 percent in July 2015; 15 percent ranked the economy in general, the major concern, up from 14 percent in July 2015, 12 percent ranked immigration problems the major concern up from 8 percent in July 2015.
On Sept. 18, 2015, 75 percent of Americans saw widespread corruption in government as bad. 50 percent of Americans said there is too much government regulation of business and 21 percent said too little regulation.
President Obama’s favorable rating is 44 percent approval and 55 percent disapproval by all voters as of Sept. 18, 2015.
What appears to be the catalyst for President Obama’s approval decline is the foreign affairs failures that are coming more and more often and more and more serious — the Iran nuclear agreement, North Korea’s ballistic missile threat, Russia’s movement of military forces into Syria and America’s bewilderment, ISIS strength and successes being underrated and altered, the Ukraine chaos, China’s naval build-up and man-made island construction in the South China Sea area, and the millions of Muslims immigrants about destabilize a feckless Europe.
Americans are concerned that President Obama’s lack of border control will accelerate the rush of Muslin immigrants to the United States.
Meanwhile, the Republican Congressional leadership still acts like they are the minority. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to use the nuclear opinion — 51 vote passage of legislation — that Harry Reid, as majority leader, used whenever he desired.
Speaker John Boehner seems unable to push through defined Republican legislation, and those legislative pieces that pass in the House, die in the Senate. Because the Democrats act in unison and McConnell refuses to play hardball.
In spite of Republican leadership faults, Americans opined that the Republicans were better able to mange America’s problems than the Democrats, 42 percent to 37 percent. While, the Republican congressional leadership is floundering and the rank and file Republicans Congress members are hearing from their constituents — Do something!
The Muslim immigrants flooding Europe believe they have a right to live in whatever country they choose and demand all the benefits of citizenship. They do not migrate to Russia, the Arab states, India, China, or Africa. That tells it all.
No matter how President Obama denies and refuses to acknowledge Islamic terror actions, Americans understand that the mass Muslim migration could pose a terror problem for the West.
The Democrats running for president and for other elected offices have reason to be concerned about the polls at this time — the polls show the clock is running.
