Some stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 23% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 44% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of -21.
  • Among Democrats, 44% strongly approve while 75% of Republicans strongly disapprove. Among those not associated with either major party, 18% strongly approve and 42% strongly disapprove.
  • Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Barack Obama’s performance and 55% disapprove.
  • Among American voters, 57% favor the repeal of health care law.
  • Generic Congressional ballot: Republicans 44%, Democrats 38%.
  • Generic Republican candidate 47%, Obama 41%.
These are some of the lowest numbers Obama has endured in his entire presidency. Even left-leaning pollsters have Obama at a substantial disadvantage. These polls fluctuate often but Barack Obama has been snowballing down a steep hill for weeks now. Leading up to August 2 and the suspenseful result of how America’s debt ceiling will finally be addressed, I rule out nothing as far as antics, posturing, and the general absurd go. Last time Obama’s numbers plummeted to levels like these he appeared on our televisions late on a Sunday night and informed us that Osama Bin Laden was dead and sinking to the bottom of a sea.

The next day his approval numbers began rising. I’m not suggesting our president played that card like an ace up his sleeve, although it may have appeared that way, but coincidence is rarely ever that timely and opportunistic.

So, if at some time between now and August 2 some bizarre event happens, something odd and monumental enough to distract an entire nation and place favor where it was not just a day before, then keep in mind the odds of lightning striking twice in the same place, although perhaps it could be coincidental, I suppose.

1,099.7 miles to go.
