    Do you then believe that:

    -The latest Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll of US voters does NOT show The Obama dropping to minus 22 points?
    -This is NOT the lowest point so far for Barack Obama since taking office?
    -That, while just 24 per cent of American voters strongly approve of the president’s job performance, almost twice that number, 46 per cent, do NOT strongly disapprove?
    -That 65 per cent of voters do NOT believe the United States is going down the wrong track, including 70 per cent of independents?

    Do you have anything to back up any of these beliefs?

    You can whine about the partisan point of view of the author, but that he may be partisan in no way makes him wrong -- and if you cannot show how he is wrong, either in the fsacts that he uses to support his conclusion of the conclusion itsels, all you're doing is whining.
    POPs are pretty irrelevant anyways and the evaluation of laymen isnt exactly damming.

    There isnt any argument there beyond "He isnt doing well in the polls." Which, while true, is pretty irrelevant. The rest is just pointless ranting.

    Your actions here only reinforce the validity of this position.

    Do you agree with the stated reasons for The Obama's decline in approval? Why/Why not?
    If not, then how do you explain it?
    Yes, clearly it is every one elses fault, not your own . It's the fault of others that you posted a poll with a conclusion that many won't agree with, and poll options that are nothing more than propaganda. I can't imagine why people won't answer your propaganda.

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

    Since you didn't offer a 'none of the above' or 'his administration isn't in trouble' option, I can't really answer your poll.

    See:
    The stunning decline of Barack Obama: 10 key reasons why the Obama presidency is in meltdown – Telegraph Blogs

    The article gives 10 reasons for The Obama’s worsening popularity among the American people and all of the political woes that follow such a thing.

    Which of these items to you believe are the cause behind The Obama’s rising unpopularity? Why?
    Do none of these explain his decline? If not, then what does?
    Are there others that should be added to the list?

    He never stated he believed it. Actually, all of those reasons were from the article. He's asking if you agree with them. You sir, should not cast the first stone whenst thou knowest least.

    Sure he probably does believe it, and I would say that at least some of those are legitimate reasons. I know a lot of them hit on why I don't like his politics.

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

    Two reasons:

    He has had to make tough economic decisions which are always unpopular, not that he has yet mustered the balls for some austerity measures that the US desperately needs.

    Secondly, socialized medicine.

    As I said -- you, yourself, are simply reinforcing the validity of my statement -- even in this very post.

    Now, rather than try to turn the discussion towards me and away from something you know you canout substantively counter, maybe you'd care to actually address the issue at hand:
    Do you agree with any of the stated reasons for The Obama's decline in approval? Why/Why not?
    If not, then how do you explain it?

    Ah.... so you admit that your previous statement was wrong, and that there IS an argument in the piece.

    Good.

    Do you agree with the stated reasons for The Obama's decline in approval? Why/Why not?
    If not, then how do -you- explain it?

    Well, if you read the piece, you'll see there were 10 points given. The poll system only allows 10 options, so I was unable to provide a 'none/all of the above'.

    I did, however, include in the OP:

    Do none of these explain his decline? If not, then what does?
    Are there others that should be added to the list?
    This allows -you- to fill in the blanks, should you believe that none of the above explain said decline.

    So... since you apparently believe that 'none of the above' explain the decline of The Obama's popularity/spproval/public confidence numbers, what then does?
    What, in your opion, should be added to the list in place of the options given?

    or 'his administration isn't in trouble' option, I can't really answer your poll.
    You do not believe The Obama's administration is in political trouble?
    The article in the OP makes a substantive case that it is - can you substantively explain how is the author wrong?

    If not, then your response here is an attempt to dodge having to asnwer the poll - which, of course, you could have more easily done simply by not responding.
