    CBS:Obama's Approval Rating Slips to 53%. Decrease Most Noticeable Among Independents

    We all know what to expect from Democrats and Republicans as far as the president's approval goes, but the steep downward trend among independent voters has got to be worrying the White House and the democrats in the House and Senate.

    CBS News Poll: Handling of Afghanistan Fuels Three Point Dip; Decrease Most Noticeable Among Independents

    (Excerpt)

    The president's approval rating has dropped seven points among independents. Forty-five percent of independents now approve of how the president is handling his job. Last month, a majority of 52 percent approved.

    Assessments of how Mr. Obama is handling the war in Afghanistan have become more negative since early October. Thirty-eight percent now approve of how President Obama is handling the war - but even more, 43 percent, disapprove. Disapproval has risen nine points, from 34 percent last month.

    Again, most of the change has occurred among independents. Last month, 44 percent of independents approved and 36 percent disapproved of the job Mr. Obama was doing on Afghanistan. Now, more independents disapprove than approve: 49 percent disapprove, and just 30 percent approve.

    Could be reason why Obama is revealing more and more of his radical true self. Playing to his base is about all he has left.

    Rassmussen has him at 49% approve 51% disapprove amongst likely voters while Gallup has him at 50-42.

    The shine starting to fade from the Democrat's star? Can this fall fast enough to stop the madness they are trying to force down our throats?

    Unless the country is in prosperity the President will have low approval ratings. It doesn't matter if the President can do anything about the state of the country or not.

    Obama really hasn't done a single positive thing since taking office in my eyes. Well, I guess him doing nothing or lagging could be considered a positive on some topics (health care).

    This president might not make it through his first term, much less win another term. When americans finally learn where this first 800 billion dollars went, or is heading, he may very well be impeached. They are now talking about yet another stimulus package, this counrty is broken, and when people finally wake up to this reality, I fear for the safety of all americans.

    Trend?

    Talk about desperate spin...

    Reread the story, Grim, and see if you can figure out specifically what they're talking about...

    Hint: It begins with the letter 'A' and rhymes with Lafghanistan.

    anybody in that god forsaken office won't beat a 60% average.
