The polls numbers just continue to slide for President Obama.
One has to wonder if it even matters to him.
Sure, we know all about "no drama Obama" -- the man who acts like Mr. Cool. He wants to transmit the message that nothing really gets to him. He's The Unflappable One.
So, even in the midst of our current calamity (and his unartful side in the polls) he can slip away to an island playground for the rich and powerful. No bother. No mess. It'll be just fine.
But let's bring it all back to show biz for a second, OK? A performer may be smooth and slick and totally professional. He or she may have the best act in the business. But if nobody's coming to see the show anymore -- if it ain't selling tickets and the house can't at least break even or make a small profit, that show's gonna close.
Well, the latest Rasmussen Reports presidential tracking poll shows that only 19% of the nation's voters strongly approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. But 45% now strongly disapprove That means that Obama has what they call a "presidential approval index rating" of minus 26. This is the lowest approval index rating yet measured for President Obama.
Translation: They ain't buyin, Mr. President. They just ain't buyin.
