Will the Real Obama Supporters Please Raise Your Hands?

News from a Quinnipiac University poll released today:
  • Since July, one in eleven American voters have decided they no longer like Barack Obama's job performance. [Added: That's a thumbs-down from about one in five of the voters who gave his job performance a thumbs-up in July.]
  • That change brings the percentage of Americans who don't like Obama's performance to an all-time high: 55%. 
  • Four out of five American voters have noticed that the economy is in recession. Half of those figure the economy is heading downhill.
  • Two out of every five American voters still cling to the belief that Obama is doing an okay job.
  • And three out of ten think the economy will improve if Obama gets four more years.
The 2012 stampede for hope and change isn't going to look quite the same as the 2008 version. I won't be surprised if the Dems start insisting on installing voting booths in soup kitchens.



  1. Have you seen that 180 documentary by Ray Comfort? It just clues you in to how stupid people actually are. As in they don't have the mental horsepower to read this or any blog like it, they just say, yeah to whatever a pollster says.

  2. @mother -- I thought it was bad when young people stopped being able to identify Ben Franklin or Isaac Newton. But to never have heard of Hitler!!!

    Cicero observed, "Not to know what has been transacted in former times is to be always a child. If no use is made of the labors of past ages, the world must remain always in the infancy of knowledge."

    These infants are intended to be Eloi.

  3. I would not be surprised if they use Marshall Law to try and stop the elections.

  4. @Trestin -- I don't know. . . . Now that they've unleased their enfants terribles, they might want to avoid getting them p.o.'d in their direction. There's always the unexpected. . . .
