    Telling.....

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's approval ratings have sunk to the lowest level of his presidency, so low that he'd lose the White House to Republican Mitt Romney if the election were held today, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

    The biggest reason for Obama's fall: a sharp drop in approval among Democrats and liberals, apparently unhappy with his moves toward the center since he led the party to landslide losses in November's midterm elections. At the same time, he's gained nothing among independents.

    "He's having the worst of both worlds right now," said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion at Marist College in New York, which conducted the national survey.

    "As he moves to the center, he's not picking up support among independents and he's having some fall-off among his base. If his strategy is to gain independents and keep the Democrats in tow, it isn't working so far."

    The poll was taken from Dec. 2 through Wednesday, as the president proposed a two-year freeze on federal civilian workers' pay and cut a deal with congressional Republicans to extend expiring tax cuts — even those for the wealthy, which he'd opposed.

    Overall, just 42 percent of registered voters approve of how he's doing his job, while 50 percent disapprove.

    Obama's standing among Democrats dropped from a month ago, with his approval rating falling to 74 percent from 83 percent, and his disapproval rating almost doubling, from 11 percent to 21 percent.

    Among liberals, his approval rating dropped from 78 percent to 69 percent and his disapproval rating jumped from 14 percent to 22 percent.

    His position among independents remained virtually the same, with 39 percent approving and 52 percent disapproving. A month ago, it was 38-54.

    The president's continued failure to rally independents could ruin his bid for re-election. A hypothetical 2012 matchup showed him getting the support of 44 percent of registered voters and Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, getting 46 percent.

    OL'BO's numbers don't mean anything right now. Hell. He's still got 2 years to turn things around.

    If the Reps starts real cuts in spending and get the ecoomy turned around then Barry Boy will get the credit.

    If all this happens then he could probably win re-election.

    i'm not your sweetie and you don't know me. thanks.

    and it's clear to most normal people that he won with 365 electoral votes.

    any more rightwingnuttery you care to spew?

    so far, in your limited time here, you haven't been very impressive. at least try.

    Romney has a shot. Probably moreso then any Republican out there.

    But not if he pulled what he pulled in the last election.

    IF he got through the primaries he WOULD have a shot. But they won't let him get past the primaries... you have the tweeting twit out there who wants it.

    Ah, still stuck in 2008 I see? Makes sense, it's obvious you people are becoming an increasingly small, oblivious minority, so yall are barricading yourselves in the past.

    Continue that marginalization by clinging to his election on racism, white guilt, and out and out lies, 3 things that were probably your only reasons for voting for him.:lol:

    All those posts, and still apparently clueless, sad......
