Does Barack Obama presently maintain strong approval ratings? The answer is yes as Rasmussen shows a 58–40 approval rating. However, as seen at the Rasmussen Reports Obama’s Presidential Approval Index is down to 8%, the lowest that it has been ever (see trends). That is down from 11% just last week.
Is Barack Obama misreading the tea leaves that the United States wants to become a socialist government? The answer is also yes. This is hardly the change that America voted for, even though many uninformed people were warned what the real Obama was like.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 38% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty percent (30%) Strongly Disapprove to give Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +8.
As Power Line also states, “there is strong evidence that the American people are not excited about the Dems’ leftward lurch.” Upon talking to America and introducing his first budget, his approval rating went down. So have the Stock Markets. There is a reason why every time Obama offers up a plan of change, the markets tank. Today, March 2, 2009 …The Dow Jones Futures fall below 7000.
CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN … collapse of the markets because of no confidence in Obama’s policies and a shift to socialism.
While the main stream media still swoons over every word and style of presentation from The One, Americans and the economy focus on much different things like the massive increase in taxing and spending. As pundits in the media make ridiculous comments like, “listening to Barack Obama give a speech is like sex.” Wait until these same people feel the actual economic effects of Obama’s socialist speeches, it will feel like a colonoscopy.
Obama and his minions say that they were elected because America wanted change. However, where did America say that they wanted the change to be a socialist government? Democrats feel that can make this leap to the left because they know they can get away with it for the moment. However, the people will have their say in 2010 whether they appreciate socialism and House and Senate Democrats will have hell to pay.
