CNN Poll: 67% Oppose Obama’s Executive Agenda

Clear majority of State of the Union viewers want Obama to work with Congress

A CNN/ORC poll of viewers who watched last night’s State of the Union address found that 67% oppose Barack Obama’s plan to pursue his political agenda via executive orders.

During his speech last night, Obama unveiled a raft of executive orders and also promised to enact gun control measures “with or without Congress.”

However, viewers reacted negatively to Obama’s plan to bypass lawmakers. They were asked, “In general, would you rather see Barack Obama attempt to reach a bipartisan compromise with Congress on major issues, or would you rather see Obama take unilateral action without Congress to make changes in government policy that are not supported by Republicans?”

Just 30% said they want Obama to take unilateral action, with 67% opposing his executive agenda, which U.S. House Rep. Randy Weber last night described as the behavior of a “socialist dictator”.

Despite the Huffington Post spinning the poll as a “positive” reaction to Obama’s speech, the numbers show otherwise.

In all three reaction categories, positive, very positive and negative, Obama performed worse than any of his previous four State of the Union speeches. Obama’s “total positive” figure of 76% was the worst return for the last 14 years besides George W. Bush’s 2006 figure of 75%.

CNN was a little more honest, reporting that reaction to Obama’s speech was “less positive than previous years.”

The poll also showed that less Americans than ever before during Obama’s tenure are confident that his economic plan will succeed. In 2009, 80% of respondents thought Obama’s policies would improve the economy compared to just 59% after last night’s address.

Although still a majority, fewer Americans than ever before following an Obama State of the Union speech believe that Obama’s policies will move the country in the “right direction”.

Meanwhile, a clever new viral ad by the American Action Network released just before last night’s speech depicts Obama as an empty suit making hollow promises.

    The majority oppose the dictator’s agenda? So what? The power elites and Obama’s gigantic ego are what count here, not an opinion poll. I expect he will follow through and do exactly what she says he will do. Unless, like the people of France and the Ukrainians, we take to the streets. But you and I know that for now that isn’t going to happen. BTW, Fred Reed posted a great essay over at Taki mag tonight on the totalitarian impulses of the federal government and how they impact every aspect of our lives. Check it out.


  2. Excellent video!! I just subscribed as well!!

    His “magic” is gone and he “fools” increasingly fewer people.

    Now when does “critical mass” occur?


    • Now when does “critical mass” occur?

      There might be too many patriots on Prozac this time around.


      • True, Prozac Nation maybe “anesthetized” to the extent that many will be sleepy sheeple. One reason that I don’t expect great masses of support for real change. But that still leaves a small, but significant, bunch of folks that do understand what’s up. When they have had enough, you’ll see “critical mass”……:-)


        • The American Revolution was carried on by a very small percentage of the population. It can be done.


          • And it will be done. No one will walk into active participation until they have lost “enough”. Should we reach the point where enough have lost “enough”, they’ll have nothing to lose. That is part of human history.

            Some of us may already be there, but won’t willingly commit suicide…..The time is getting closer…..:-)

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
