Its tumbled based on realtime experience not skewed MSM polls or a change. The reality of what Obama has done to this economy is starting to cause a lot of pain for the people. Obamacare alone is causing that number to fall very quickly. The low info voter is getting a tough dose of reality right now.

I cannot remember a time in my entire life when I had more uncertainty and apprehension about what the government might do to all of us next.
