    POLITICS JUNE 23, 2010 Confidence Waning in Obama, U.S. Outlook
    By PETER WALLSTEN And ELIZA GRAY

    Americans are more pessimistic about the state of the country and less confident in President Barack Obama's leadership than at any point since Mr. Obama entered the White House, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

    The survey also shows grave and growing concerns about the Gulf oil spill, with overwhelming majorities of adults favoring stronger regulation of the oil industry and believing that the spill will affect the nation's economy and environment.

    Sixty-two percent of adults in the survey feel the country is on the wrong track, the highest level since before the 2008 election. Just one-third think the economy will get better over the next year, a 7-point drop from a month ago and the low point of Mr. Obama's tenure.

    Amid anxiety over the nation's course, support for Mr. Obama and other incumbents is eroding. For the first time, more people disapprove of Mr. Obama's job performance than approve. And 57% of voters would prefer to elect a new person to Congress than re-elect their local representatives, the highest share in 18 years.

    really now.........do the RCP Averages that liberal board members like to fall all over themselves to post up really matter at this point? But knock yourselves out if you must!!!

    Republican support? GONE

    Independent support? GONE

    What is astounding is that at this point, even committed liberals are starting to jump ship.......and who ever thought we'd see that??:eek:




    OK..........so if you are chief advisor to Barak Obama, what are you telling him to do politically moving forward to slow the bleeding?

    Ah yes. They surveyed every single person in the United States and came up with those numbers. I mean, its the only way they could safety say Republican and Independent support was gone, in all caps.
