Obama showed up to support Lt. Governor Anthony Brown who is running for Governor. "You've got to vote," Obama repeated over and over at a rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington. A steady stream of people walked...

    Republicans believed a Mitt Romney win would seal Obamacare's fate. Democrats - or rather, the lonely two-fifths of Americans who support the president's beleaguered healthcare law - believed an Obama win would secure its future. Both sides were kidding themselves.Romney may have pledged to repeal the law, but his positions on Obamacare had the life span of a rainbow. He supported an identical law when he got the credit for signing it as governor of Massachusetts. He then opposed Obamacare when that's what GOP primary voters wanted to hear, and later endorsed parts of it when he thought that's what...

    A new poll that came out on Thursday shows the merged Likud - Yisrael Beiteinu party taking a big hit mostly for the benefit of more right wing parties. The reason behind the shift is likely dissatisfaction with the cease fire. A new Israeli poll released this morning, and conducted following the cease-fire with Hamas, announced yesterday after 8 days of fighting, shows a significant drop in public support for Israeli Prime Minister Netanayhu. The poll which was commissioned by Israelís Knesset website and conducted by the Panels Institute shows Netanyahuís joint list with Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, named Likud-Beiteinu...

    Democrats wary of their unpopular presidentBy Thomas Ferraro | Reuters Ė 5 hrs ago WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four years ago, Senator Claire McCaskill was one of Barack Obama's biggest boosters in his presidential campaign. But when he recently visited her state of Missouri, she did not have time to join him. Many of McCaskill's fellow Democrats in Congress may also decide they are too busy to be with Obama, whose approval rating of about 40 percent as the economy struggles threatens to be a drag on their own reelection chances next year. "You may see a number of Democrats say...

    A highly unpopular U.S. Congress returns to work from a month-long recess next week facing a crush of challenges -- from creating jobs to expanding U.S. trade to finding another $1.2 trillion or so in spending cuts. With voters demanding more compromise and less fighting in Washington, lawmakers may try harder to find common ground with Democratic President Barack Obama on these and other matters, such as taxes, regulations and disaster aid. The Democratic-led Senate returns on Tuesday and the Republican-led House of Representatives convenes on Wednesday with a dismal popularity level. Opinion polls taken in the aftermath of their...

Ms Gillard said today the polling was a result of her plan to put a price on carbon, and that while it was a tough reform "it may get even tougher, before it gets easier". ďI believe that once carbon pricing is in place people will see how the system works and the benefits of it,Ē the Prime...

    PRINCETON, NJ -- President Barack Obama averaged 46% job approval the week of Feb. 28-March 6, his lowest weekly average since mid-December. Obama's weekly approval rating had steadily improved from mid-December to late January, peaking at 50% during the final two weeks in January, before dropping below that mark in February. Trend, November 2010-March 2011: Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president? Obama is now essentially back to where he was in the immediate post-election phase of 2010. The decline could be due to a number of issues the administration is...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 9, 2011 | Staff
    When the first OPEC oil shock hit the U.S. in 1973, President Nixon encouraged Americans as a voluntary gas-saving measure to drive 55 mph on the interstate. Not long after, the infamous "double nickel" became mandatory as Congress made states choose between adopting the lower speed limit and losing millions in federal aid. For two decades, most Americans voted with their gas pedals and flagrantly ignored the federal speed limit. It had become the least respected law since Prohibition by the time President Clinton repealed it in December 1995. Now, as we learn more about Obamacare, the odds are good...

    The November Kaiser Health Tracking Poll shows that President Obama's health care overhaul has now hit a lower level of popularity than at any previous time in his presidency. Kaiser writes, "Just a quarter of the public (25 percent) now says they expect their own families to be better off under the health reform law, which is the lowest share since KFF [Kaiser Family Foundation] began tracking this question." Kaiser notes that it began tracking the question in February of 2009, just weeks after President Obama's inauguration. The survey also confirms that "health care voters" were central to the Republicans'...

    The left has collapsed. Its political support has collapsed. Public opinion polls point to a historic repudiation of the president and the Democratic party this fall, something on the order of a 60-seat Republican gain in the House. The GOP has an outside shot at taking the Senate as well. Its claim to intellectual integrity has collapsed. Paul Krugman, Ivy League professor, New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate (the holy trinity of the liberal establishment), has humiliated himself with a startlingly dishonest attack on Paul Ryan's budget proposal. Krugman, called out by Ryan, rebuked by honest analysts and unwilling...

    My friend Bill Otis responds to John's post, which expressed surprise that President Obama is talking about immigration, given the unpopularity of the administration's position on that subject. Bill writes: My view is that Obama is starting to talk about immigration because, although he surely knows it's a big loser, it's less of a loser than the items from which he hopes the immigration yacking wil distract attention, to wit, that the oil catastrophe continues apace while he is helpless and inert, and that there is a tepid recovery, if any, with a pitance of private sector jobs. Indeed, we...

    For years, Iíve heard supposed libertarians pontificating about low-taxes, on the one hand, while supporting welfare-dependent drug addicts, on the other. Which begs the question: Are the mediaís favourite libertarian thinkers, Alzheimerís victims or fifth columnists? Take Reason magazine Ė and letís revisit 2008. Before the last election, Peter Bagge a Reason contributing editor was asked which way he was swinging. The libertarian-minded elitist pontificated: If the polls in my home state are close: Obama (McCain is simply too incompetent these days to be president). If not, Iíll make a protest vote for Barr. And how did that work out?...

    So the Rasmussen poll now has the President's Approval Index rating at -19% with 22% of the nation's voters strongly approving of his performance and 41% strongly disapproving. The overall numbers are 45% approval, 54% disapproval. Rasmussen reports the Approval Index rating is at the lowest level seen only one other time in this presidency: December 22, the eve of the last health care push in the Senate; pre-Scott Brown. According to Rasmussen, only 39% support the President's health care plan, 58% are opposed. Still he plans to unveil it tomorrow. In front of the cameras (finally). It will be...
