Obama's tanking


And the media and punditry, many of our own in fact, go on and on about our candidates?  Obama's numbers are below Carter's for crying out loud!  U.S. News reports:

President Obama's slow ride down Gallup's daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.

What's more, Gallup finds that Obama's overall job approval rating so far has averaged 49 percent. Only three former presidents have had a worse average rating at this stage: Carter, Ford, and Harry S. Truman. Only Truman won re-election in an anti-Congress campaign that Obama's team is using as a model.

Gallup show Obama stuck at 43%, but as the Washington Examiner points out, "buried down in the report is this nugget on trends since January 2011 when Obama had a much higher 49% approval rating."

Obama's approval rating has decreased among all six partisan/ideology groups Gallup tracks on a regular basis since January, but it has dropped the most -- 10 percentage points, from 40% to 30% -- among pure independents. These are the roughly 14% of national adults who neither identify with one of the two major parties nor indicate a leaning. Obama's approval rating has declined by nearly as much -- eight points -- among moderate/liberal Republicans, from 29% to 21%.

Keep it up, Mr. President...or should I say down.  When you constantly engage in class envy, riling up one citizen against another, divide and segregate Americans for any reason, much less for shear political gain and power, as with your re-election campaign's latest decision to abandon white working-class voters, emphasis on 'working', then it should come to no shock that you're losing support.  Yes, too many will fall victim to this conquest, but there's still enough Americans who see through the veil, who want the republic, its economy & its core principles to be revitalized & succeed, and who reject your Big Government one-size-fits-all statism.
