But it probably is worth emphasizing anew that Barack Obama is not a popular President:
President Obama’s job approval numbers will dip below 50% for the first time today in Gallup’s daily tracking poll, according to a Gallup official.
“Gallup Daily tracking results just in. Obama will be below 50% for the first time when we update our numbers at 1:00 p.m.,” wrote Gallup.com managing news editor Lymari Morales on Twitter.
His approval numbers have bounced down to the 50% mark several times, driven by weaker support from independents and Republicans, but hadn’t crossed it.
The man in the White House is no longer a political dynamo. Maybe he will become one again, but for now, he’s just an ordinary politician, fighting to make sure that people like him.
Just like all other politicians, as a matter of fact.
