As Obama’s Gallup approval hits 38, Allahpundit quips that he’s one golf photo away from the magical Bushian 35 percent mark.
Take a look at this chart (sorry; I can’t seem to upload it here) tracking the ups and downs for Obama during his term as president. You will note that in early July an unprecedented decline began for Obama. As Allah points out, it’s the economy (stupid). It’s been in the dumps too long, with no end in sight.
Many of Obama’s former supporters have given up hoping that things will change, and/or trusting that Obama knows what he’s doing on that score. Some of the recent decline in Obama’s popularity seems to be from liberals who hate Republicans even more. I’d say that the most Obama’s opposition can hope for from them is that they stay home on election day 2012.
[ADDENDUM: I just noticed that, with this article, the number of posts on this blog tagged "Obama" has reached 736. I need to get out more.]
