Obama Barely Edges Zimmerman in New Poll

Posted by on Jul 25, 2013 at 8:19 am

Just give it a little more time and George Zimmerman will be far more popular than the whiny failed president. Another speech or two should do the trick.

Fox News just released a nationwide poll in general in keeping with many others, finding voters are unhappy with the economy and want Obamacare repealed.

But what’s truly eye-opening are the comparisons of partisan opinions of President Barack Obama and George Zimmerman, who was acquitted July 13 of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges for shooting unarmed Miami Gardens 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.

Republicans have a more-favorable opinion of Zimmerman, a figure of sympathy to a number of conservatives, than Obama. That’s right: The Democratic occupant of the White House is held in less favorable regard by Republicans than the guy who shot an unarmed teenager and successfully pleaded self-defense.

Specifically: Republicans are two-and-a-half times more-likely to have a favorable opinion of Zimmerman than Obama. And they’re almost three-times more likely to have an unfavorable opinion of Obama than Zimmerman.

Republicans, with independents siding more with them, also agree with the verdict more than Democrats (who disagree with it). There’s also a clear racial divide, with blacks disagreeing most-strongly with the verdict than whites. African-Americans are more likely to see race as a major factor in the case.

Asked for whether they rate these people as favorable or unfavorable, here’s how GOP respondents answered the pollster:

Obama: 18-79% favorable-unfavorable

Zimmerman: 45-27% fav-unfav

But independents aren’t far behind Republicans.

Among them, Zimmerman’s fav-unfav: 28-34%. Obama: 30-60. So while independents narrowly liked Obama more, they disliked him by an even greater margin.

Overall, Obama beat out Zimmerman with a 50-46% rating for the president, thanks to strong Democratic support (88-11%). Overall, Zimmerman’s fav-unfav is 28-43%, due largely to extreme Democratic dislike (his fav-unfav among them: 14-64%).

The only thing preventing Zimmerman from besting Obama is the huge support from the braindead Obama zombies. Meanwhile, the exalted racial healer Obama has continued to make race relations worse.

    The degradation of virtue in the U.S.A. is clearly evidenced by the fact that a non-trivial fraction of its electorate views B. Obama as a better person than G. Zimmerman. Anybody with a brain who is not bamboozled by MSM spew can see that George is a better man than Baruck.

    “That’s right: The Democratic occupant of the White House is held in less favorable regard by Republicans than the guy who shot an unarmed teenager and successfully pleaded self-defense.”

    A very stupid line. It should have read “… the guy who shot a teenager who was sitting on him, punching him in the face while slamming his head onto the concrete …”

    Look, with these incomplete and inaccurate discretions, even Fox is contributing to the racial divide.

    This could be en excellent assignment. I’m curious about the grading criteria, though. Do you get an ‘A’ for writing good propaganda, or for refusing to help the Nazis and martyring yourself, or for leaving the country?

    Let me plant another small seed for someone with the connections to get it going. Why not figure out how to arrange a world wide “Egyptian Army” appreciation day on the internet. We know they are killing obambi’s friends the mooselimb Bro’hood and I think we should show the Egyptian Army some deserved appreciation from the American people, nay the world, for doing the good job our elected officials won’t. Also we get the added bonus of the Egyptian Army possibly killing some of the good friends of Huma Weiner and Shillary. Who could ask for more?
    After all, “What difference does it make?”

    I definitely trust zimmerman more than obama. I also like the idea of one poster to show our appreciation of the eqyptian army (I would add in the egyptian demonstrators that drove the army to do it as well) for toppling the muslim brotherhood.
