With this President it just goes from bad to worse. It is getting so bad, one wonders if there is a bottom to depths this man is willing to drag the country.
Rasmussen reports Obama’s poll numbers are the lowest yet, with 56% disapproving. At RCP where they average major polls, Obama is backed by 48% while 47% disapprove. Either way, it is a long steady decline since inauguration when 64% approved, and only 20% disapproved.
The essential explanation is simply this: most voters thought they were getting a slightly left of center intellectual who would form coalitions here and abroad to reverse what they perceived negative in the Bush years.
