At last, there is convincing evidence that Obamas poll numbers may be descending to earth. While his approval remains high and his personal favorability is even higher the underlying numbers suggest that a decline may be in the offing. Even as he stands on his pedestal, the numbers under his feet are crumbling.
According to a Rasmussen poll, more voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats to handle the economy, by a margin of 45-39. Scott Rasmussen notes that this is the first time in over two years of polling that the GOP has held the advantage on this issue. Last month, he had the Democrats holding a one-point lead, but they lost it in Junes polling.
And the Democratic leads over Republicans on their core issues are also dropping. Particularly interesting is the Democratic decline over healthcare, from an 18-point lead in May to only 10 points now.
A Gallup poll also confirms that the presidents personal ratings are high, but the underlying data less so. While 67 percent of voters give Obama personal favorable ratings and 61 percent approve of his job performance (Rasmussen has his job approval lower, at 55 percent), they give him much lower ratings on specific issues.
Gallup shows Obama getting only 55 percent approval on his handling of the economy (down from 59 percent in February) and finds that only 45 percent approve of his handling of federal spending while 46 percent approve of his treatment of the budget deficit.

Thanks for the heads up. I heard that interview with George Will. It was a great one.
We can especially thank 40 years of public skook educayshun...
And you had better believe you have to pay property or income taxes or be a veteran to vote in the new Republic.
Fix this one problem and virtually all the other ones will fix themselves.
And that is happening fairly rapidly. Gas is already approaching $3.00/g in many parts of the country, and that has happened in just a few short weeks. This, at a time when prices traditionally recede between Memorial day and July 4th.
When the Kenyan Usurper, 0sama0bamadingdong gets hot and heavy with this healthcare-for-illegals fiasco in the coming weeks, expect him to start seeing his road to hell! He already had his "I don't want to Socialize medicine" event yesterday, which sounds to me like the sentiment in the White House is not to healthy right now! This guy won with 52.9% of the vote. I would bet my next $1 million in earnings that at LEAST 3% of those who voted for this non-natural U.S.-born President have asked themselves "What the HELL..??!" by now!! (my guess is at least 7-10% have arrived there by now!)
Obama is like a car thats rusted out so bad only the paint is keeping it together.
And all everyone wants to do is keeping it painted white and shiny.
But under the glossy coat is crumbling flakes of corrosion that will bear no stress or load.
And although the engine still runs the car loses some of its structure with every bump in the road, every day another piece falls off, and soon all of a sudden it will collapse in upon itself and kill its occupants.
And America is paying the insurance.
“more voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats to handle the economy”
Can I vote neither of the above?
Remember, Dick Morris, Democrat Reprobate, was joined at the hip with Obama in the scandalous Odinga campaign in Kenya. Odinga is a jihadist, and a marxist. Please never forget that in the aftermath of The Obama, Odinga, Morris Campaign, Christians were massacred, churches burned, and a civil war threatened.
The Dick may also be under the aegis of George Soros to help scope out opposition to the Magic Marxist POTUS. Don't believe a word the guy says.
And Sean Hannity, that goes double for you, me fine broth of a lad. What were you thinking of doing with this left-wing scumbag besides helping him sell his book?
