    Even as Wall Street appears to be stabalizing, Obama's approval numbers continue their steady declines. Rasmussen's most recent poll shows yet another 2-point drop for Obama, and when compared to just two weeks ago, it appears clear a significant amount of "buyers' remorse" is taking hold across America.

    One must assume though that if the economy continues to show signs of recovery, so to will Obama's approval numbers - numbers that still remain above 50%. Perhaps the most immiediate question will be if the upcoming election cycles will play out in favor of the Republicans vs the Democrats. Polls show the vast majority of non-union workers do not favor the Democrat/Union desire for card-check. (Meaning these workers do NOT want to unionize) And yet another poll shows the vast majority of Americans do not favor another stimulus bill even as Nancy Pelosi hints another such bill will in fact be happening in the near future. (Perhaps more San Francisco swamp mice to save?)

    Is there some reason that you feel the need to say this every day when nothing's changed??

    it's bad enough when people are wingnuts, when they're wingnuts AND liars??? sheesh... just boring.

    Reality: STILL:

    RCP Average 03/03 - 03/10 -- 60.8 30.2 +30.6

    :cuckoo:

    Obama was elected with 52% of the vote? Even if people mostly like him, how far above 60% do you think he's going to stay, nutter?

    And yet Bush had 92 percent at one time and had a higher percentage at this point in his presidency than Obama has now and he did not even have the popular vote according to the records. And Bush maintained over 70 for months.

    Don't forget that Bush's eary poll numbers reflected fair minded Democrats giving the new President a chance while Obama's early poll numbers reflect the vindictive Republican Party of NO!

    See the Obama's decidedley more positive spin in the news cycles now.

    He is quite aware of the downward trend of his polling - particularly the rise in negatives.

    The language is starting to prove far more pro-business/tax cuts than just a few weeks ago - a remarkable shift in such a short time that shows more than a bit of concern from within the White House. I give them credit for this change as it at least shows the ability to digest public sentiment and change course accordingly.

    Sadly, the Democrat Congress remains oblivious...

    That's it, any day now Obama is going to renounce all his ideas and adopt the failed theories of Reagan.

    I wonder if the stimulus package and the budget bill both with earmarks, in the first 50 days had anything to do with the poll numbers?
    Fair minded democrats, and vindictive republicans geeze, that's rich.

    So, Dubya I., It was those "fair minded democrats" with all the lies crying for Bush to fail? That's what I meant about "rich"..idiot.
    It's what's known as politics, and is expected that there will always be opposition to the other party. But, don't go touting that dems are fair minded, and the repubs are vindictive. You show your lack of knowledge.
