Every Day Fewer People Are Fooled by Obama

Progress (from Daily Caller):
 Fewer and fewer Americans capable of comprehending Obama's greatness -- You were doing fine there for a while, America. You bought the hype. You were charmed by the smile. You were hypnotized by the mellifluous voice. Why did you have to go and ruin everything by paying attention to how the guy's actually doing in office? TheDC's C.J. Ciaramella reports: "President Obama's job approval hit a new low today, according to the latest Gallup poll. How low? Lower than a snake's belly in a wagon wheel rut. Only 26 percent of Americans approve of Obama's handling of the economy, to be exact. The new low is a drop of 11 percentage points since Gallup last measured it in May and well below his previous low of 35 percent in November 2010. Obama earned similarly low approval for his handling of the federal budget deficit (24 percent) and creating jobs (29 percent). His approval ratings on Afghanistan and foreign affairs also sunk by 15 points and 9 points, respectively." Back in the old days -- 2009 -- Obama's high approval ratings were proof he was right and was doing a good job. Which means his low approval ratings prove... nothing, of course. Polls are racist. Isn't it about time for a federal ban on pollsters?
What's curious is that despite that 26% number Obama would still get at least 40% of the votes if the election were held today. People will say they disapprove and yet still vote to give the guy another four years. Dumb.
