Hopey-Changey Health Summit: Obama Bombed


There are two elements in this:

Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. That is the lowest level of total approval yet measured for this President. Fifty-five percent (55%) disapprove. The President earns approval from 76% of Democrats while 86% of Republicans disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 38% approve and 61% disapprove. The President earns approval from 37% of men and 49% of women.

Data for these updates is collected via nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, just two-thirds of the interviews for today’s update were collected following the President’s health-care summit. Tomorrow morning (Sunday) will be the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the summit.

I'm not surprised. 1) When Obama dumped all over McCain, it provided an emotional negative which was significant. 2) And anyone who watched Ryan's 6-minute firebombing of ObamaCare has the rational negatives.

The combination was deadly.

Too bad.

The stoneface temperament didn't help him at all. It was very unleaderlike

He acted more like a schoolteacher.

Simply put, he acted like a community organizer. Nothing more, nothing less.
