If the election were held today, President Obama would lose his bid for reelection.
A new Public Policy Polling survey released on Wednesday shows for the first time since July, Obama no longer leads Republican front-runner Mitt Romney in the 2012 election race. Romney has pulled into a tie with Obama at 45 percent.
More Americans now disapprove of Obama’s overall job performance at 48 percent than approve 46 percent.
The reasons for this should be obvious by now to everyone.
On Thursday, the Labor Department said first time claims for state unemployment benefits increased 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 418,000. A total of 7.33 million Americans are were claiming unemployment benefits.
According to GALLUP, Mr. Obama has had 10 consecutive sub-50% job approval quarters. One of the worst in modern politics.
President Obama’s terrible job approval numbers are, in my opinion, directly tied to his willingness to slash Social Security and Medicare in order to get a debt deal with the Republicans in the House.
An online poll on Ed Schultz’ webpage asked:
Would You Ever Vote for Anyone Who Cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid?
94% said No, while 6% said Yes. A no brainer. But President Obama can’t seem to wrap his brain around this central truth.
