Gallup Shows Dear Leader's Honeymoon is Over

Sliding Slowly into the Forties

Gallup now shows what other polls have already indicated, that Obama's popularity is dissolving faster than a snowman in a sudden warm spell.
Of the post-World War II presidents, Obama now is the fourth fastest to drop below the majority approval level, doing so in his 10th month on the job. Gerald Ford dropped below 50% approval during his third month in office, and Bill Clinton did so in his fourth month. Ronald Reagan, like Obama, also dropped below 50% in his 10th month in office, though Reagan's drop occurred a few days sooner in that month (Nov. 13-16, 1981) than did Obama's (Nov. 17-19, 2009).

Given this fellow's amateurish efforts up to now, especially his dithering over troop decisions and abrupt reversals of stated policy goals [missile sites in Poland, etc.], don't expect his job performance to improve in the near future.
