So in the MSM and certain blogger’s minds that must make 50% of Americans raaaacists.
Last week’s jubilant signing of the health care overhaul, Obama’s signature domestic initiative, seems to have given the president little boost. Instead, his standing on four personal qualities has sagged, and 50% of those surveyed say he doesn’t deserve re-election.
In the survey last Friday through Sunday, the president gets tough treatment:
• Obama’s standing on four key personal qualities, including being a strong and decisive leader and understanding the problems Americans face in their lives, has dipped. For the first time since the 2008 campaign, he fails to win a majority of people saying he shares their values and can manage the government effectively.
• Twenty-six percent say he deserves “a great deal” of the blame for the nation’s economic problems, nearly double the number who felt that way last summer. In all, half say he deserves at least a moderate amount of blame.
• By 50%-46%, those surveyed say Obama doesn’t deserve re-election.
Obama’s approval rating on handling the economy, foreign affairs and the federal budget deficit hasn’t significantly changed from February. It has risen a bit on health care, though he doesn’t get majority approval on any of the categories.
Can you imagine the numbers without the MSM cheerleading squad?
