Anytime an incumbent is below 45% in approval ratings, that incumbent should hire a real estate agent because his time is up. This polling should trouble Mssrs. Axelrod, Obama and Plouffe:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney earning 50% of the vote and President Obama attracting 42% support. Four percent (4%) would vote for a third party candidate, while another three percent (3%) are undecided.
This is terrible news for President Obama. It’s one thing to be trailing at this point. It’s another thing when 60% of likely voters are rejecting President Obama’s message and his ‘accomplishments’.
I haven’t seen numbers this bad since George H.W. Bush ran for re-election. We know what happened that year, don’t we?
This polling is tied directly to President Obama’s unpopular policies and President Obama’s ‘accomplishments’. President Obama knows that he can’t win if the conversation is about O’Care, the stimulus, the failed economy and the regulatory overreach by the NLRB and the EPA.
If that’s what we’re talking about this September and October, Michelle Obama will be thinking about where she, President Obama, Sasha and Malia will live the rest of their lives.
