With just three weeks to go until the midterm elections, a significant national poll indicates that Barack Obama has lost almost half of his support base since taking office, and while voters are turning away from the Democrats, they are also still turning away from Republicans.

Bloomberg News reports that, according to their own scientific poll, more than 4 in 10 voters who say they once considered themselves Obama backers now are either less supportive or say they no longer support the President at all.

Obama’s approval rating is 47% according to the poll, while his approval amongst those who say they were previously supporters languishes at just 39%.

Overall, a total of 64%, almost two thirds, say the country is on the wrong track, with unemployment, the federal deficit and government spending as the major issues facing the country.

55% of respondents indicated that they believe the deficit is dangerously out of control and threatens the economic future of the US, with 6 out of every 10 voters stating that Obama has damaged the economy.

A majority of voters believe that Obama and Congressional Democrats have done more to harm the country than they have to help it.

A majority of 47% believe health care bill should be repealed, with particular opposition to provisions to mandate the purchase of health insurance and greater taxes on companies that provide cheaper insurance options. A minority of 42% stated that the bill should not be repealed.

A majority of 60% also pinpointed the war in Afghanistan as “a lost cause” with just half that number still believing it can be won.

Unpopularity for Obama and the Democrats is not translating into support for Republicans however, with voters describing them as “the lesser of two evils”.

Unlike the midterms of 1994 and 2006, when the opposition party gained congressional control as voter attitudes shifted to them and away from the incumbents, the Republicans are not gaining in popularity in 2010.

49% said they still had an unfavorable view of the Republicans, with Democrats still edging favorability, 47% to 45%.

The survey also indicates that if the presidential choice at this time were between Obama and Sarah Palin, 51% would vote Obama and just 35% would vote Palin.

The full set of results from the poll can be viewed here.

All of these figures indicate that the American public is turning away from both parties in droves and seeking another choice.

Neither of the two parties achieved a 50% score when voters were asked who they would like to see in Congress.

When asked to vote for Republicans, Democrats or “Other”, Democrats scored 42%, Republicans scored 40% and 18% chose the “other” option.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
