    He ain't doing well with the independents. I'm not one to put much faith in polls, things can change big time in 4 months. But I'm not seeing any reasons to believe the economy is gonna do much better any time soon.


    snippet:
    The percentage of Americans who approve of Obama's job performance dropped from 50 a month ago to 47, matching his mark in early January. The number who think the country is on the wrong track rose 6 percentage points in a month to 63 percent.
    The doubts about Obama's leadership helped Romney pull to within 1 point of the Democratic president in the White House race - 45 percent to 44 percent - among registered voters with less than five months to go before the November 6 election. Obama led by 7 points a month ago.
    .
    .
    Romney now leads Obama 46 percent to 43 percent among all registered voters on the question of which candidate would be stronger on jobs and the economy. That reversed Obama's 2 point edge on the question last month.
    .
    .
    Obama's approval ratings took their biggest dip among independent voters, who could be crucial to the ultimate outcome of the election in November. Approval for Obama among independents fell from 48 percent to 35 percent.

    The verdict is in.

    Obama couldn't run an Ant Farm.

    What did you Expect lol. Can't talk right out your ass like he did the other day, and continue to say it's Not my Fault, It's not my Debt, It's Not my Economy, Blame Bush, and expect Positive Results.

    Another Poll Says 61% of Americans believe Obama will take any Position, and Do or say just about Anything, to Get Re-elected.

    Any Credibility he had with anyone out side the Far left is quickly going away.

    If his Big Economy Speech tomorrow is filled with nothing but Blaming Bush, and the Same old tired Ideas, He will take another big hit in the Polls.

    I'd prefer a likely voter poll, with an 08 or 10 election polling data set...... I think ras has one but they are to be disregarded...;)

    I'd bet my last dollar Obama will blame the repubs in Congress, the recession in Europe, and Fox News for everything that has gone wrong during his presidency. I know damn well there are plenty of far lefties around here who will.

    I don't see why it took so long. He's been an obvious stuttering clusterfuck of a failure to anybody who's been paying attention for the last 4 years.
