How his approval rating isn’t in the 30s is beyond my comprehension.
Pundits examining daily poll numbers to gauge the impact of current scandals on President Obama are missing a bigger trend. Even before recent revelations of misconduct by his Administration, Obama’s approval ratings have been declining throughout the year. On Monday, Rasmussen reported that 47% of likely voters approved of Obama’s handling of his job, while 51% disapproved. This is a massive 20 point negative swing since the first of the year.
What do you mean, beyond your comprehension?
Obama is down to his bedrock 47%, that’s all. It won’t go any lower, or he’ll have to get tough and start kicking a few people off the dole, as an example for the others.
