One thing President Obama has held onto throughout his long descent in the polls is his likability. News stories always took pains to point out that, though Americans believed he was performing abysmally on the economy, etc., they still, for unfathomable reasons, found him personally appealing.
Now, according to this Washington Post-ABC News poll, the president's mysterious charms have worn thin. Back in April, when asked whether they had favorable or unfavorable impressions of Obama, 33% of those polled had strongly favorable feelings and 32% had strongly unfavorable feelings. Now, to borrow a phrase from Mr. Eloquent, a "whole buncha folks" like him a whole bunch less: 22% strongly favorable, 31% strongly unfavorable.
Maybe they've gotten tired of his angry, hectoring demeanor.
From another poll, more bad news for Obama:
For the first time since President Barack Obama took office, a majority of Americans believe he deserves at least some blame for the country’s economic troubles, a new poll Wednesday shows.Well, he did say, "Give it to me!"
According to the USA Today/Gallup survey, 24 percent of Americans say Obama deserves “a great deal of blame” for the state of the economy – a 10 point jump since 2009. A majority of Americans, including six out of 10 independents, think the president deserves “a great deal or moderate” amount of blame.
