BHO's poll numbers are in the tank with just a 3% approval rate, the lowest poll numbers to date.

"
56% TOTALLY APPROVE

35% STRONGLY APPROVE

"

Looks terrible...

What you're calling "3%" is actually the "Presidential Approval Index" up 3+ from Jan. 21.

This is a tough time and people are scared and confused, especially folks who'd been hoping for a sitcom-style quick wrapup to the financial crisis.

Default I'm sure this was an error and not misleading on your part.

I'm sure this was an error on your part and you weren't purposely trying to mislead. Your reading the wrong column, its up by +3.

According to Gallop poll his ratings are up to 69%. Again, i'm sure you knew that as well.

I'm sure your post was an honest mistake. His total approval rating is 56%. Still not good as this is a continued errosion from his January 65%.

Overall on a graph chart....his approval rating continues to slowly slide, and this after only a little more than two months in office.

Looks like a good deal of buyers remorse out there!

You have so distorted the results of the poll - I don't know where to start laughing.

This should be a lesson to everyone... nNever post unless you are sober.

Or maybe it's just a case of 'wishful thinking' distorting and twisting reality...

Another contributor said something about the Obama's continued approval slide and "buyer's remorse". Gee I wonder what side they're on? Anyway, who ****ing cares? There is a great deal of delusion out there. And like it or not, we are not in a sitcom. Should we truly rebound economically speaking, it will be from a gradual and long term plan. In the meantime, this administration will be scrutinized and criticized with every move, or non-move.

Five symptoms of sour grapeitis...
- Hunt for anything negative
- Twist/misrepresent data/facts to suit whim (usually deliberate and conniving but a variant has shown presence of some honesty in that the victim takes things very seriously, latter being a more serious form of the issue)
- Serve it on a silver platter
- Call it facts
- Feel good

As it should be with all administrations until we are no longer a democracy.

Agreed. What a stupid thread.

He can not read because his hatred for Obama blinds it

So sad.
