Good News, Bad News from Gallup

The Good News

The latest Gallup Poll has Obama’s approval numbers falling to the lowest he’s ever received, dipping below 40%, at 39%. (74% of Democrats, 36% of Independents, 9% of Republicans approve of Skippy.)
The even better news is how Obama compares to his predecessors at the same juncture in his presidency. Only Jimmy Carter had worse ratings than Obama:

The Bad News

Gallup’s first measure of the 2012 congressional elections shows Democrats leading Republicans, 51% to 44%, in registered voters’ preferences for which party’s candidate they would support in their district “if the elections for Congress were being held today.” Worse still, twice as many voters say Tea Party endorsements are a negative rather than a positive.

Take heart, friends! Remember these words of George Washington, in his letter to James Madison, 1786:

“No morn ever dawned more favorable than ours did; and no day was ever more clouded than the present! Wisdom, and good examples are necessary at this time to rescue the political machine from the impending storm.”

  1. aaaahhhhhh read my lips no more obama…..

     
  2. What scares me is the lack of wisdom (ie my mom) amongst the voters. That and the fraud.
    Yet we must have hope that Skippy will be out in 2012!
