Obama’s numbers continue to tank

If anyone wants to know what the rush is on passing health care legislation, look no further than Obama’s slipping poll numbers on the issue – among others.

Heading into a critical period in the debate over health-care reform, public approval of President Obama’s stewardship on the issue has dropped below the 50 percent threshold for the first time, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Obama’s approval ratings on other front-burner issues, such as the economy and the federal budget deficit, have also slipped over the summer, as rising concern about spending and continuing worries about the economy combine to challenge his administration. Barely more than half approve of the way he is handling unemployment, which now tops 10 percent in 15 states and the District.

As unemployment rises, Obama’s numbers are sure to continue their downward trend which means the window of opportunity for Obamacare to pass is closing – but it’s not shut.  Keep up the pressure.  Melt the phones!
