The right question is, why they aren't crashing more?
A new day brings a new poll with bad news for the president. The Wall Street Journal-NBC poll pegs his approval at 45 percent (statistically tied with his low of 44 percent), with 50 percent disapproving of his performance. That puts him where George W. Bush was at this point in his second term. That’s not all. In this poll, for the first time, his disapproval rating in foreign policy matches his approval (46 percent). And voters disapprove of Obamacare by a 13 point margin (47 to 34 percent). It is worth noting that the sample for this poll reflects a 10-point win for Obama in 2012; the actual number was closer to 3 percent.
So Obama is tied with Bush for this point in the second term despite having the largest free public relations campaign - provided by the mainstream media - working for him rather than against him?
That speaks volumes.
