Obama's numbers and Dems' generic congressional ballot both drop By Thomas Schaller There's a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll out. The numbers are grim for Democrats and Barack Obama, but more to the point, the country continues to express a general and very real disgust.

Chuck Todd, Mark Murray, Domenico Montanaro, and Ali Weinberg of NBC's First Read summarize the major findings this way:

In the poll, Obama's approval has dropped below 50% (to 47%); his party faces its first net-negative fav/unfav since Sept. 2007; and one-third think he has the right goals and priorities to fix the economy....

I have the answer. Pass a radical public option healthcare bill that nobody wants.

Do they care about poll numbers?....No and hell no.

They will all be flushed in the next election and they know it. They don’t care. They will ramrod as much socialism thru as they can before defeat.

Forget the polls. Just observing the Obama administration at work should send chills up the spine of any intelligent Democrat (not an oxymoron, but close.)

That demographic is the ONLY group in which ‘bammy has actually improved his approval rating since January, from 90-91%.

I would love to know his current numbers on Manhattan's Upper West Side. I wonder how the "middle-finger" crowd in this YouTube video feels today . . . not that they'd give a truthful answer.

I wonder what Fauxbama has promised all these d-RAT Senators? He must have promised these knuckleheads something, because they’re not answering calls from their constituents, and their mailboxes are full, as if to say, scr*w you, your call is just not that important to us.

1/3rd think that nobody actually works, and that there's a big ole bucket o money out there that you can just scoop out all you need and it never goes empty. Course, the money class hasn't helped by scooping everything out of the bucket to cover their bad bets.

Sarah Palin’s fav/unfav is 32%-40%, up a tick since her book tour. And the Republican Party’s fav/unfav is 28%-43%. Indeed, the anti-Washington sentiment is so strong that the conservative, libertarian-leaning Tea Party movement has a net-positive fav/unfav, 41%-23%.

Funny, they don't mention the Dem fave/unfav, it must really be tanking.

Isn't it a pity that we don't have an opposition party as dedicated to preserving the Republic and adhering to the Constitution as the Democrat party is destroying it?

2010 and 2012 are going to be smashing Republican victories. That is as long as conservatives stay in the party and don’t try to start up another.
