It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama’s high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced.

Polling data show that Mr. Obama’s approval rating is dropping and is below where George W. Bush was in an analogous period in 2001. Rasmussen Reports data shows that Mr. Obama’s net presidential approval rating — which is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve — is just six, his lowest rating to date.

1) Media needs to report the facts as facts rather than continuing the leftist pipedream of a Dem President w a halo around his head as some sort of savior
2) After recognizing the low polls, Pres Obama needs to first address them
3) President Obama needs to be seen as reigning in the far left leaders of his party who control Congress; to be seen reigning in the people who are spending millions of dollars to study shit (“human waste study earmark put forth by Dems from Wisconsin).
4) actually STOP spending instead of just talking about it

Failure to recognize, address, and correct the factors that are lowing his poll numbers must be done asap.
