According to a Rasmussen poll, more voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats to handle the economy, by a margin of 45-39
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.
Gallup poll also confirms that the president’s 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.
As it becomes clearer that the deficit caused by spending has landed us in a new economic crisis, entirely of Obama’s own making, his popularity and job performance are likely to drop as well.

No, anon :14, it doesn't make me happy. It does however make me hopeful that voters see that choosing a leader isn't all about flowery words and wordy whimsical speeches. I hope with the worsening economic climate that voters start to really understand that you can't get out of debt by creating more debt. I hope that the next election will bring forth a leader with experience in foreign policy, national security, as well as some business experience.
Your pp has me wondering if you are new to this section of Cafemom, or if you just haven't been comprehending what is under the fundamental difference of opinion on the subject of Obama.
