Obama Sinking in Public Opinion

From the Quinnipiac poll, "Obama Approval Dips Below 50% For First Time" (via Memeorandum.):

President Barack Obama's job approval rating is 48 - 42 percent, the first time he has slipped below the 50 percent threshold nationally, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Support for the war in Afghanistan and approval of President Obama's handling of the war also is down in the last month, and Republican support for the war is more than twice as strong as Democratic support.

American voters say 48 - 41 percent that fighting the war in Afghanistan is the right thing to do, down from 52 - 37 percent in an October 7 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. Voters disapprove 49 - 38 percent of the President's handling of the war there, down from 42 - 40 percent approval in October.

What this poll says to me is that there are still far too many of the couch-riding dumbMasses that are still way too far behind the learning curve to make much difference when it will matter the most, and that time is less than twelve months hence.

Wake the Hell up, you American Idol worshipers and Entertainment Tonight amoebas!
