    Obama is mainly failing because he is ignoring and in some cases insulting people on the right. He has been very partisan and divisive. Whether one agrees with any one side or not, they are still Americans who's positions on the issues should be taken into consideration. Having a temporary majority should not mean the Dems can do what ever they want. Many people in America hold conservative opinions, and to ignore those people means political doom.

    The debt, deficit, increased spending (with limited results), taxing issues, health care debate, border security, immigration division, slowing economy, and high unemployment do not help either.

    Re: Why is The Obama’s administration in trouble?

    What is it with these retarded one sided polls?

    Anyways, I won't vote for your poll because its stupid, however I think Obama's biggest misstep is the order in which he is doing things. Specifically, focusing on healthcare right now was a very bad idea. Had he shown improvement on the economy first I think more people would have been receptive to it. I think it is something he should have concentrated later on in his presidency.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    There isnt really an argument there, it's just someone re-hashing all the same tired rants Conservatives have been throwing around for two years.

    I mean, the author starts in about Obama's speeches, criticizing his use of a teleprompter when every president since the technology was available has used one.

    Ranting is not argument.

    There's no argument establishing The Obama's political troubles? Did you read the article? There's even links to substantiate the claims.

    To wit:
    The last few weeks have been a nightmare for President Obama, in a summer of discontent in the United States which has deeply unsettled the ruling liberal elites, so much so that even the Left has begun to turn against the White House. While the anti-establishment Tea Party movement has gained significant ground and is now a rising and powerful political force to be reckoned with, many of the president’s own supporters as well as independents are rapidly losing faith in Barack Obama, with open warfare breaking out between the White House and the left-wing of the Democratic Party. While conservatism in America grows stronger by the day, the forces of liberalism are growing increasingly weaker and divided.

    Against this backdrop, the president’s approval ratings have been sliding dramatically all summer, with the latest Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll of US voters dropping to minus 22 points, the lowest point so far for Barack Obama since taking office. While just 24 per cent of American voters strongly approve of the president’s job performance, almost twice that number, 46 per cent, strongly disapprove. According to Rasmussen, 65 per cent of voters believe the United States is going down the wrong track, including 70 per cent of independents.

    The RealClearPolitics average of polls now has President Obama at over 50 per cent disapproval, a remarkably high figure for a president just 18 months into his first term. Strikingly, the latest USA Today/Gallup survey has the President on just 41 per cent approval, with 53 per cent disapproving.
    There's the 'He is in trouble' argument.
    Can you refute what the author says here, or not?

    I'd say the bulk of it is probably the ****ty economy. If unemployment were at 4%, nobody would give a **** about anything in the OP.

    It's a poll asking if you agree with the reasons given for The Obama's political troubles.
    By its very nature, it is one-sided.

    Anyways, I won't vote for your poll because its stupid...
    This is due to a lack of understanding on your part, not any defect in the poll.

    however I think Obama's biggest misstep is the order in which he is doing things. Specifically, focusing on healthcare right now was a very bad idea. Had he shown improvement on the economy first I think more people would have been receptive to it. I think it is something he should have concentrated later on in his presidency.
    You appear to agree with at least two of the poll options -- why is it again you wont vote in the poll?

    Again, it's ranting. "Ruling liberal elites"? Wtf? What does that even mean?

    The fact that this article is calling the teabaggers a "rising and power political force to be reckoned with" tells me whoever wrote it is WAY out of touch with politics.

    The author is dancing the dance of the partisan rant, there's no argument there.

    The Tea Party IS a rising and power political force. Their message hits to the core of the conservative Americans, as well as many Americans with conservative opinions.

    Combine that with the fact his popularity at this point in his administration is not all that unknown for presidents, and we have almost the whole story.

    The whole "Messiah", "The Obama" stchick has got to be one of the most retarded things ever. The concept that being an ass is somehow making a point is hilarious.
