Remember this joke Colbert made about W, to his face?
I was reminded by it reading this morning tweet
To be sure, Andrew Malcolm has his own image at the link – and it has nothing to do with W
and mind you, this is not a Rasmussen poll that O’s dismiss off the bat. No, it’s a Zogby – who has been an O himself.
From Malcolm’s snarky piece
President Obama has passed the Big 4-0 — going the wrong way.
Turns out voters were not simply satisfied to spank the Democrat and his party in the Nov. 2 midterm elections with historic losses in the House of Representatives.
Obama’s job approval rating as calculated by the Zogby Poll has now sunk to 39%, a new low for his 22-month presidency that began with so much hope and excitement and poll numbers up around 70. As recently as Sept. 20, his job approval was 49%.
A whopping 60% now disapprove of his job, up from 51% disapproval Sept. 20.
Obama now trails in hypothetical 2012 matchups against Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and the next Bush, Jeb.
That last one really scared me. Of course, the most amusing part for Malcolm is the tie with Palin that came out of that poll
But for me, the cherry on top is the awakening of the O’s
But, Zogby notes, perhaps 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.
Obama, John Zogby writes, “is failing to please more than one-fourth of his own party’s voters. This is a perilous position for the President.
“Conventional wisdom calls for him to reach for the center and assume that Democrats will stay with him in 2012. But as we saw in the mid-terms, Democrats can’t win without strong turnout from the young and minorities, both of which are demographics that need more motivation than others to vote.“
Time to reopen Camp Obama. And stock it with targets with Palin’s pictures on it.
