Political Pendulum Headed Back to the Right
Thanks to Mike's America at Flopping Aces-
Disapproval of Obama on Sharp Rise-
Mike's America has been keeping a sharp eye on Obama's approval ratings on this chart.
Mike wonders how long it will be before the lines cross and the disapproval line is higher than the approval. "We may be on the threshold of that moment".
While Obama remains popular personally, approval of his policies continues to plummet as voters wake up and realize this isn’t what they meant by change.
The trends suggest that Republicans need not have any fear in opposing Obama. In fact, the greater danger for Republicans is to fail to take advantage of this opportunity to highlight their differences with Obama and lose what little support they have left among the conservative base of the GOP.
Example- Dick Cheney's favorable/approval ratings continue to climb and in fact are higher than Nancy Pelosi's since he has been publicly defending the Bush administration for defending the country since 9/11/2001 and challenging Obama's claims of prior torture and abuse.
