Wonder what you would find if you frisked some recent polls regarding President Obama?
Answer: Maybe people didn’t hate George W. Bush as much as they thought.
Once again… Just an awful week for President Obama in the polls. Check this one out, because I guarantee it’s a stinger:
Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama’s declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they’d rather have his predecessor. Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that’s somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country’s difficulties.
I normally don’t use this expression, but here we go… Oh snap! I did NOT see this one coming at all, mainly because Barack Obama played off the hatred a lot of people had toward George W. Bush during his 2008 campaign. If you told me 10 months ago that these would be the poll numbers in December, I probably would of laughed at you. Don’t worry though, I’m not done. Here’s another shocker:
Finally 20% of voters, including 35% of Republicans, support impeaching Obama for his actions so far. I’m not clear exactly what ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ they are using to justify that position but there may be a certain segment of voters on both the right and the left these days that simply think the President doing things they don’t agree with is grounds for removal from office.
Now granted, President Obama will not be getting impeached over anything he has done so far, but it still goes to show how much he’s decline in less than a year. After all, back in January he was almost like the second coming of Jesus to some people. I guess Americans are finally starting to metaphorically crawl out of bed and awake to his extremely radical views and policies. Thank you Real Jesus.
Side-Note: Hmm… I wonder if Robert Gibbs will publicly attack Public Policy Polling too for this recent poll. Any bets?
