Zimmerman Has a Higher Approval Rating Among Republicans Than Obama

obama zimmerman

If someone walked up to you and asked, ‘who has the higher approval rating, the President of the United States of America or the man who gunned down an unarmed teenager’, what would be your answer? You’d probably opt for former versus the latter, but that means  you’re probably not a Republican.

A new Fox News poll of Republicans voters showed that Republicans actually have a higher opinion of George Zimmerman than President Obama. Only 18 percent of those polled have a favorable opinion of the man the majority of Americans elected twice to lead this country, while a whopping 79 percent of Republican voters have an unfavorable opinion of him.

Contrast that with vigilante George Zimmerman who, after being acquitted of k!lling Trayvon Martin, has a 45 percent favorability rating among Republicans. Only 27 percent of respondents have a negative view of Zimmerman.

This seems to go to the heart of the reactionary nature of American politics, meaning if  Democrats are against something, then Republicans are for it, no matter what it is. In this case, the Republican hostility toward Obama is so high that they’re willing to place an admitted k!ller ahead of Obama where likeability is concerned.

If Zimmerman ever declares himself a supporter of all things Obama, there’s little doubt that Republicans would change their assessment of  the self-appointed neighborhood watchman. This is, of course, also a product of right wing media, which went to bat for Zimmerman after Obama said, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” Once Obama said that, the gloves came off and Republicans took Zimmerman under their protective wing.

It has nothing to do with race. Zimmerman was acquitted of murder by a jury of his peers - that is America. Obama is still being investigated for multiples scandals and will not tell the truth. That pisses me off frankly. I don't want a President who is taking away my rights as an American citizen and giving more rights and privileges to an illegal breaking the law!

Only the republicans would give a mental with a gun a higher approval rating because they are one of the same. I followed that case from start to finish, and every time the prosecution mentioned his "Mental State", zimmerman' eyes would blink uncontrollably. He is crazy and he is legally carrying a firearm. Only in ThisCountry. :( Sad very sad.

You'll notice that the hateful words and race-baiting of many Republicans has become stronger in the last year.  I contend that the reason is the real fear that they won't win any important elections soon, and they are not attracting any new believers.  Many elected officials have made fools of themselves with their lies about President Obama.  Several Republicans have been approached to run for various offices, and they have refused.  They don't think they can get enough votes to beat a Democrat.  I have a solution: stop your racist talk and try to include all Americans in your party.

I don't know why anyone would be surprised.  This is a fact to wash the faces of Republicans with when they claim not to be racists.

Then after rating Zimm higher than Mr. President for killing an innocent boy, what next?  The next would be your mother murdered or your son. And you should continue rating him? When the wicked is on the throne, evil spills. And no wicked must go unpunished.

Any Republican r Democrat, that would support or praise a individual like Zimmerman, obviously has a heart of ice, which echoes on the outside by their actions. Of course, there specific reason is that there hearts are full of racist hate for Obama because he is considered by these low class morons to be classified as black. Whats so sad is a lot of these racist have black blood in them and don't even know it as Obama has white blood in him as well but the roots of hate runs so deep in these sick racist pigs , they attempt to over look  this fact, especially Republicans, where the majority of low class racist pigs can be found, it must be a a generational curse in their genes from one generation to another in so many of their off spring, if not a equal ratio is taught by race hating infested parents, who are directing their children in how to loose their souls upon death to the Devil in Hell being a racist sinner.
