BAMMY’S NOT DOING WELL IN THE POLLS
Posted by Andrew Roman on May 20, 2010
Not that he will care, of course.
He will write it off as some right-wing connivance meant to derail his attempts to finally make America a more perfect union. He’ll dismiss it all as being the result of angry, manipulative AM radio talk show hosts who dispatch daily marching orders on how to react to the otherwise benevolent and admirable metrosexual from the Windy City. He’ll say he doesn’t care about the polls, that he is there to do the work of the American people, blah, blah, blah.
Still, the numbers aren’t good … and they haven’t been for a long time.
There was no boost when ObamaCare was passed, like they thought there would be.
There has been no boost as the administration continues to blast the new Arizona immigration law … and there won’t be.
The fact is: the Messiah ain’t doing too well.
According to Rasmussen, the Presidential Approval Index has dropped back to -19 – the lowest it’s been since March 20th. (Barack Obama hasn’t had a positive Presidential Approval rating since June 29, 2009).
From Rasmussen, via Weasel Zippers:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19.
In other poll news: Rasmussen finds that 55% of all Americans are in favor of an Arizona type immigration law being passed in their own states, while only 33% are opposed.
A whopping seven in ten Americans believe a police officer should be required to verify the legal status of anyone stopped for any sort of violation if that person is suspected of being in the United States illegally.
The 12% of Americans who remain unsure about whether or not they’d like to see an Arizona-type law enacted in their own states would almost certainly flip to the “yes” column – in this humble blogger’s opinion – if they were aware that the law is not about racial profiling.
Earlier reports suggested that the Arizona law would allow police to stop anyone they suspected of being an illegal immigrant. The law as it stands, however, applies only to situations where someone has been lawfully stopped for some other violation.
Of course, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and probably a whole host of Obamacrats, haven’t read the law yet …
And China and Mexico hate the law …
