It’s the economy stupid …
President Barack Obama continues to slide in the polls of the most important issue of the 2012 election, the economy. According to a recent CBS poll, only 34% approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, while 60% disapprove. OUCH! This is a record low for Obama. Or a record high of those who disapprove depending on how one looks at it. How does any president win reelection when 6 in 10 Americans disapprove of how a president handles he economy? Overall, Obama’s approval rating was at 43% with 47% disapproval. Among the all important independent vote, only 39% are satisfied with Obama’s job as President.
President Obama’s ratings on the the most important issue for his re-election — the economy — have posted the weakest showing of his presidency, according to a poll released Friday by CBS News.
About 60 percent of voters said they disapprove of Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy, the highest on record. Just 34 percent approve of the job he is doing on the matter.
His overall approval ratings are just 43 percent, while 47 percent disapprove of the job he is doing as president.
Just recently, the Obama administration postponed the decision on the Keystone XL pipeline until after the 2012 election that could have created 20,000 jobs. However, the president who claimed he was all about job creation chose partisan politics over the US economy and jobs.
Sorry, but there is no way if 60% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the economy he can win reelection. Hmm, wonder why he has embraced the class warfare Occupy protesters?
