Let us not forget the mess the repubs put us in after mostly republican control during and after Reaganomics in the 80s and thereafter leading up to the "Great Recession"! Aside from Clinton's signing of Bush Sr.'s republican congress and senate "NAFTA", the repubs should take full credit for the mess are United States is struggling through. Call it Bush bashing or whatever, credit should go to many years of republican control leading up to this mess, but please "do not forget" who's to blame, especially during upcoming elections! Corporate lobbist is not what our forefathers intended our representatives to represent! "We the people", must one day soon take a stand and demand our country back! Tea baggers, coffee drinkers or whatever should be fighting for "We the people", must demand that corporate lobbing be illegal!

I must admit that I don't believe in all the polls but some are pretty consistant with their numbers. I also am amused by the constant Bush 2 bashing STILL going on. When does this President start taking responsibility? When something good happens it's because of him, conversely, when things go bad the finger gets pointed at Bush. By the way, the $1.3 trillion dollar deficit that Bush left, you might want to remember that $700 billion of that was TARP, which Sen. Obama supported. He must accept partial responsibility for that as well as the other unfunded spending that has occured on his watch which has eclipsed the spending that occured under Bush even with 2 wars being fought simulaniously.

You can not predict specifically any election results from some polls. However, in this case, the clear indication is that if the pres election was held today, Obama would lose big in both electoral votes and popular votes. The indication is that even in those States were he leads, he has lost considerable voter percentages, And the results are consistent throughout.

I would have expected his polls to continue to decline...with no jobs, healthcare, wrong side of Arizona 1070, a poor job with the oil spill, Sestak and Romanoff, and his cold shoulder to Isreal, I really think impeachment is just around the corner for him. He had a great opportunity but after 18 months to prove himself it's all gone down hill.

Republicans blocking every effort.... John, does the term "opposition party" ring a bell. We are teetering on bankruptcy, although some economists say we have already turned the bend are are diving headlong into bankruptcy, and spending wildly will only accelerate the trip. If President Bush was taking us to financial ruin on a freight train, President Obama is doing it on the Concorde. I do not believe President Obama is doing so on purpose, but rather has let his ideology guide him in the face of reality showing otherwise.

Much like Cicero, in the Golden Age of the Roman Republic, the President is an orator without peer, but lacks any hint of administrative wherewithall and appears clueless in a crisis during which voting "present" doesn't count for much.

The Presidential polling will continue at or slightly below these levels.
Compare how Obama acts and reacts to a situation compared to say....Mitt Romney
It will be painfully obvious that the President does not have the instincts
that someone that KNOWS how to lead has.
I only ask you to observe and make your own mind up.
But I will tell you this ...if someone like,for example, Mitt Romney WAS President ,the oil may still be leaking but it may have been contained better and you can bet the farm that the economy would be better and unemployment would be lower.
In my mind ,it is all about confidence and credibility.....I have yet to see any of this from the present administration.

John...Do you not recall that approval for those wars came with support for both sides. In regards to being bailed out of our economic woes, that might be news to many, especially those still unemployed.
