CNN Poll: Obama’s Receding Popularity and Falling Poll Numbers
By Joyce Singha
Newsmax reports that President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped a shocking 8 percentage points over the last month, one of sharpest, fastest plunges in his presidency, according to a newly released CNN poll. For the first time in Obama’s time in office, more than half of the public doesn’t feel that the president is honest and trustworthy. Specifically, Obama’s approval rating stands at 45 percent, down from 53 percent in mid-May, CNN reported. A shocking 54 percent of respondents told pollsters they disapprove of how Obama is handling his job. That was up 9 points in just a month.
Could it be possible that scandals of Benghazi, IRS, snooping on media (Fox and AP) and the most recent one of government snooping through its NSA surveillance program – are finally coming around and showing up in his greying hair and receding popularity? Here lies the conundrum of Obama, plain and simple. There are scandals, lies, cover ups, deceit, zero transparency from his administration, poor performance as a president, an economy in doldrums, high unemployment and sky rocketing national debt, yet he managed to show some unbelievable numbers, more than half of America still believed in Obama! The President in return maintained a demeanor of innocence and no-knowledge. Somehow those plunging poll numbers have finally broken through the wall of impregnability that Obama had succeeded in building around him. Could that stress of lying and deceiving be the cause of changing colors and plunging numbers?
