    Lowest ever: Obama job approval sinks to 39%, as even Democrats' support melts away

    Lowest ever: Obama job approval sinks to 39%, as even Democrats' support melts away.

    Nearly 7 in 10 likely voters say the country is on the wrong track...

    ...most ominous for the president is that he's now losing support among his own party people. His approval plopped nearly 10% in just one week, from 78% down to 72% in Zogby's latest read.

    And, oh, my! Lookee here! Obama has... a statistical tie with none other than Sarah Palin...

    His 35% approval rating on the economy is the lowest of his presidency.

    The question is, will he run again?

    People point to Clinton post midterms, but Clinton did two things:

    1. He signed a lot of Republican legislation, including welfare reform... which he swore he wouldn't. (Clinton being who he is, tried on its 10th anniversary, to take credit for its huge success.)

    2. He started a stealth campaign on TV in southern states that was under the radar; a brilliant tactic from his mastermind Dick Morris.

    Obama won't likely do enough of the first, and the second trick was a one-time only performance, just like Obama's bait-and-switch. Neither are gonna work this time around.

    PS. It's the economy Stupid.

    It would seem that 39% of the people are not yet paying attention.

    It's not surprising, really. Obama has been one of the most divisive presidents we've had.

    Obama's rhetoric to the during his 2007-2008 campaign was inspiring. The problem is, he had nothing to back it up and now supporters are disappointed, independents are disinterested and conservatives are saying "I told you so". He was a great idea that just could never materialize because it was all talk. Obama reminds me of the snake oil salesman promising everything will be better with the purchase of just one bottle.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    "Hope," "change," and "transparency" come to mind as examples. Too bad none of those happened.

    Um, not to rain on anyone's parade (and Obama's diminishing presence pleases me as well), but last time I checked the new math, 78-72 was 6... which is hardly 'nearly 10'

    I'm just sayin...

    I know full well that Stewart critiqued Obama. It is good to know not all of them are of one mind.

    You're the third; frankly, I enjoy it. The metaphysical mind is not the physiological brain; we cannot see all aspects of everything intangible within our minds, so there are things that exist that we cannot see. The fMRI does not show all intangible aspects. (I'm planning to start researching more deeply that issue.)
