Only half the people in the country prefer having Barack Obama as president instead of George Bush.
This is the most startling result in a new poll, done by Public Policy Polling, a liberal group!
Allow me the pleasure of quoting: "Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama's declining support is that just 50 percent of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44 percent saying they'd rather have his predecessor."
They try to spin the results with this: "Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that's somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country's difficulties instead of giving him space because of the tough situation he inherited."
This last is getting a bit tiresome. Do you ever remember the media bemoaning the horrid mess Ronald Reagan inherited from the little pipsqueak from Georgia?
The bottom line is that it appears the highly praised and hugely overrated Obama will soon be the second choice of voters, behind the scathingly libeled Bush. How's that for hope and change?
