Obama's Numbers Continue to Tank

Jim Geraghty's Morning Jolt email this morning discusses John Fund's Wall Street Journal article entitled Obama Girl is No Where to be Found. Geraghty's daily email is a light hearted look at the morning's headlines, or at least items that would likely be of interest to conservatives. The poll numbers indicate that Obama is losing support for every component of his job and Fund could not have provided a better lead in for Geraghty:

"Democrats will be gulping this morning at the Quinnipiac Poll's latest results. For the first time in the survey's history, Americans believe by a 48% to 40% margin that President Obama doesn't deserve re-election. Almost as stinging, a plurality believe the country would have been better off if John McCain had beaten Mr. Obama in 2008. The Quinnipiac Poll is pored over by political observers because it has a good predictive record and because its large sample size of nearly 2200 people implies a much smaller margin of error than most surveys -- around 2 percentage points."
Look at all of the things that Obama has wrought on this nation in the last 18 months (and it is quite a bit) and one can only come to the conclusion that Geraghty suggests, that the last era of totally liberal control (the early 90's) were the good ole days.

Another clip from Fund's break down of the Quinnipiac Poll:

Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, says the warning signs for Mr. Obama include the fact that voters now turn thumbs-down on him on all major aspects of his presidency. Only 39% rate him positively for his handling of the economy, only 43% on foreign policy, a mere 30% on his illegal immigration stance and only 41% like his Gulf oil spill policy. Even his pick of Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court is approved by voters by only 46% to 34%.

Obama knows what he is doing. He has said he would rather accomplish his agenda and be a one term president than get re-elected, and he knew that he would likely have only two years to do it. That is why the push for Obamacare the first year. He knows that once things like Obamacare and crap and tax are enacted that repealing them will be significantly difficult. That is what makes this year's election so important.
