Barack Hussein Obama Ratings DOWN Points Since January

Rasmussen Reports

His worst showing to date, and trending lower.

The numbers matter because:

1) The lower Obama’s numbers go, the less inclined less liberal Democrats will be to join Obama initiatives such as socialized medicine, and his other fascistic schemes.

2) The lower Obama’s numbers go, the less the “halo” effect is upon Democrats generally, which translates into more Republican pickups in the 2010 elections, and maybe a Republican take back of the House.

This is what makes no sense at all. The dems disapprove of his handling of the Economy and Foreign Policy, yet his job approval is still in the 60% range.

The translation to more Republican pickups in 2010, is a definite possibility.
The downside is that the Republican Leadership seems incapable of supporting candidates that are nothing more than the RINOs we are currently saddled with.
They, the leadership, talk a good game, but at the same time reject the viability of the Palins,Bachmans,etc..
The time is ripe for a second Reagan Revolution, but unless the Republican Leadership gets on board, it won't happen

This is the standard poll trends for an elected Democrat. Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, and Clinton. They all started with high media pumped numbers which fell the longer they Governed.

The exception was Clinton who because Gingrich was willing to cooperate with him was able to use the MSM to claim credit for the accomplishments of the best Congress in fifty years. Hopefully Gingrich has learned that when a liberal pats you on the back they are looking for a place to siid the knife in.

Either Scott Rasmussen or Robert Gibbs are lying. Maybe it's only that Rasmussen reads from Left to right where Gibbs is so far to the edge he can only read right to left. Hendrik Wade Bode could make it look good no matter how bad it is.
