Mr. Obama’s job approval ticked down to 41% in March from 43% in January, marking a new low. Some 54% disapproved of the job he is doing, matching a previous high from December, when the botched rollout of his signature health law played prominently in the news. The latest survey also showed the lowest-ever approval in Journal/NBC polling for Mr. Obama’s handling of foreign policy.
Shocking? Hardly. And it shouldn’t be.
Since its terrible roll out, Obamacare has been beset with one issue after another, which took a toll on President Obama’s approval ratings last December. And now month after month, and in poll after poll, more Americans say they are skeptical of Obama’s leadership skills.
Just two weeks ago we learned that nearly a quarter of Democrats asked said they are totally disappointed with President Obama.
The ever-downward spiral of Obama’s approval ratings should come as no surprise to anyone who is willing to be intellectually honest with themselves about who Barack Obama is.
He is a man who was so blatantly devoid of any political or professional accomplishment. He was the young, black, liberal the American media fell hopelessly in love with. And they willingly crafted his character as capable of commanding the world’s largest economy and its most powerful military.
Obama is a myth. And when you strip away all of the undue adoration and all of the irrational reverence the media conferred on him, you can clearly see the real Barack Obama — a bewildered politician trying to hold up a failed ideology.
His depressing poll numbers are a mere reflection of what happens when the lofty promises of progressivism buckle, inevitably, under the pressure of economic reality.
The results of Obama’s affirmative action presidency, reflected his poll numbers, are merely validating that reality.
