01 Sep The Obama Slide
David Brooks open-ed in the NY Times:
“The result is the Obama slide, the most important feature of the current moment. The number of Americans who trust President Obama to make the right decisions has fallen by roughly 17 percentage points. Obama’s job approval is down to about 50 percent. All presidents fall from their honeymoon highs, but in the history of polling, no newly elected American president has fallen this far this fast.”
Fascinating article that mentions the rise in independent voters and the Administration’s need to stymy their downturn in popularity. Are the days of two party pleading over?
