Even the poor are asking themselves if they are better off today than they were before Barack Obama.
President Barack Obama even failing with his job approval with the poor. According to a CNS report, Obama’s approval among the poorest Americans dropped to an all time low of 48% last week. This presents Obama with quite a perplexing situation. He now is under 50% job approval with all income classes.
Each week, Gallup publishes the president’s average approval rating for the previous week among four income brackets: those who earn $2,000 per month or less, those who earn between $2,000 and $4,999 per month, those who earn between $5,000 and $7,499 per month, and those who earn $7,500 per month or more.
For the week of April 4-10, Obama’s approval rating was 48 percent among those making $2,000 or less per month, and 46 percent among those in each of the three higher income brackets.
Think this has any thing to do with Obama’s new class warfare in proposing taxes on millionaires and billionaires, even though it means any one who makes more than $200 K. Barack Obama is in for quite a tough run in 2012.
