    In your opinion is this a good thing or a bad thing? Why?

    It speaks for itself. It is neither good or bad. It illustrates that he and his policies are not as promised and/or failing.

    I am thankful that his extreme left wing socialist agenda has been identified for what it is and the American people are seeing it with eyes wide open and voicing their displeasure with it.

    Don't get too excited. I was thinking about this yesterday and we have a real catch 22 on our hands.

    If the economy does not recover in the next 3.5 years, where will we be as a nation? (if we still are a nation by then) If it does recover in the next 3.5 years, Obama's approval ratings will rise faster than a 12 year old with a playboy. That would surely mean 4 more years of him trying to destroy what's left of America.

    Would the same hold true then for any recent President who had both high and low approval ratings during their administration. I refer not only to he who must not be named, throw Clinton in and every other President going back to the start of modern polling practices. Polls are just a snapshot in time. They mean very little. History is a better judge than a couple thousand phone calls on any given day.

    Let's not let Chicken-Little run rampant here. The US economy has a LONG way to go to get to the likes of the Carter administration. I remember the gas lines. Knock on wood there is no inflation....there are some signs of recovery....we just need to keep the political fingers out of the damn cookie jar.

    If the American public will keep up the pressure and take it to the next level of voting the current class of poiticians out of office....things should improve....hopefully.

    True enough.

    History is being written as we speak and the first words written are the polling above.

    Weren't the first words the poll in January?

    It is the final words that will count, though.

    All else aside. Carville's 1992 "Its the economy, stupid" rings a bell.

    Polls go up and down and the American people tend to bend with the prevailing winds.

    Sure there will be changes in 2010, but the sky is not falling. Not now, not then.

    Cruise missile attacks on Afghanistan helped Slick Willie with Monicagate. Maybe our Dear Leader should lob a few cruise missiles himself to overcome ratingsinthedumpgate.

    subroc, you didn't mention one of the best parts ...

    Twenty-nine percent (29%) are confident that Congress knows what it’s doing when it comes to the economy. If Americans could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, 57% would throw out all the legislators and start over again. Just 25% would vote to keep the Congress.
    I do wonder about that first 29%, but that 57% might turn out to be a good omen.
