The honeymoon is over for President Barack Obama as his poll numbers continue to fall and more Americans become dissatisfied with his job performance.
In a potentially alarming trend for the White House, independent voters are deserting President Barack Obama nationally and especially in key swing states, recent polls suggest.
Obama’s job approval rating hit a — still healthy — low of 56 percent in the Gallup Poll on Wednesday. And pollsters are debating whether Obama’s expansive and expensive policy proposals or the ground-level realities of a still-faltering economy are driving the falling numbers.
This is actually a good sign for the country, but it might not be the opening the Republicans will need. They need to shape up their image as much as Obama and the Democrats need to.
It is clear that over the past 10 years the American people have become feed up with the two-party system because they realize that both will abuse the power given them once in office. So what comes next? It’s hard to say, but these numbers against Obama are a good start.Published in
