Is the narcissism of Mr. and Mrs. Sociopath so pathological that they have lost touch with the real world? Despite their rapidly sinking approval numbers, they seem oblivious or just plain disdainful. Instead of changing course, Obama is determined to further alienate the American people by endorsing the Conquest Mosque at Ground Zero.
Terence P. Jeffrey of CNS News reports on August 13, 2010, that new Gallup Poll data indicate that even the poor (defined as those earning less than $2,000 per month) are abandoning Obama. Although the Sociopath had enjoyed a majority approval from “the poor” in every week of his presidency, the Gallup survey of August 2-8 found that now only 49% of this group approve of the job he’s doing. That 49% figure is a precipitous fall from the 76% approval among this group as recently as May 4-10.
In fact, for the first time since he was inaugurated as president, Americans in all four of the income brackets reported in Gallup’s weekly survey of presidential approval gave Obama less than 50% approval. Self-anointed King Barack XIV is now approved by only:
Happily for Obama, he is not alone in his declining popularity. He has the company of his wife, Michelle Antoinette.
Whereas 64% of those surveyed by the Journal/NBC in April 2009 said they had a positive impression of Mrs. Obama, today, the number is 50%. Michelle’s 50% personal approval is only marginally better than her husband’s personal approval figure, which stands at 46% in the new poll.
Michelle Antoinette’s personal popularity is lower than former First Lady Laura Bush’s ratings in the same poll by the same pollsters. In December, 2001, 76% of those surveyed had a positive opinion of Mrs. Bush. In February 2005, that number was 65%. In October 2006, with her husband’s job and personal approval ratings plummeting, Mrs. Bush’s personal approval rating was 56%.
Michelle Sociopath received the first negative press of her time in the White House in recent weeks during her vacation trip to Spain. Critics questioned why she chose to go to a glitzy, high-priced resort at a time when unemployment is high and many Americans are suffering economically. The White House pushed back, first giving reporters the story that Mrs. Sociopath made the trip to comfort a friend who had recently lost her father. When that didn’t fly, the White House insisted that Michelle is so popular that she will be in great demand by Democrats campaigning for House and Senate seats this November. Alas, the new Wall Street Journal/NBC numbers put the lie to that piece of fiction.
