Business Owners Not Big Fans Of Obama

Is it any wonder? Obama trots out his “you didn’t build that” quote and has been trying to saddle them with higher taxes, as well as being largely dismissive of the private sector economy (via The Lonely Conservative and Hot Air)

(Gallup) U.S. business owners’ approval of President Barack Obama fell in the second quarter of 2012 to 35%, essentially tying farmers and fishers for the lowest approval among major occupational groups. Overall, professional workers remain the most approving, at 52%. …

Obama’s job approval ratings by occupational group clearly relate to election preferences. Gallup previously found that Obama does best compared with likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney among voters who are professionals and service workers. Romney does best among voters who work in farming and fishing or construction, or are business owners.

In the overall average for the second quarter of 2012, 47% of working Americans approved of the job Obama is doing as president, and 47% disapproved. This is slightly improved from 45% approval and 48% disapproval in the first quarter.

On one hand, Obama is doing a tiny bit better overall, but, clearly it is not because of Obama doing anything himself (he didn’t build that), but having a stable Republican controlled House keeping the economy from falling off the cliff.

59% of business owners disapprove of Obama. In fact, out of 11 categories, Obama gets negative ratings in 8 of them.

    Bull
    . In the electoral college vote, Rasmussen has Romney with 167 votes and Obama with 180. The rest of the votes and states are in play.

    More and more states are starting to lean toward Romney or at least be brought back into play. States that were once thought to be impenetrable strongholds for Obama such as Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, and North Carolina are getting more attention as the voters aren’t thrilled with Obama.

    Traditionally, the candidates will see a bump from the conventions. The Republicans will be behind Romney. His announcement of a VP will bring more excitement and votes to him.

    Obama, on the other hand, will be dogged by questions of “where are the Democrats?” and “oh God, not Biden again!”

    Last year at this time, most people thought Obama would walk away with this election. Now his lies, his record and (lack of) performance is catching up to him.

    I may not be a huge Mitt fan, but he is better than Obama any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

    What the!?!??!

    Who are these idiots who think Obama has done any good for them? Who are these idiots who love red-tape and taxes and a decreasing customer base?

    I got a feeling this was skewed highly. 40% of the business owners CANT still believe in this administration (EPA, ICE, CIA, DEA, Dept of Energy, and Obama himself).
