Boy, you really have to be a zealot to vote for something the public disapproves of by huge margins:
As the Senate prepares to vote on health care reform, American voters “mostly disapprove” of the plan 53 – 36 percent and disapprove 56 – 38 percent of President Barack Obama’s handling of the health care issue, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Voters also oppose 72 – 23 percent using any public money in the health care overhaul to pay for abortions, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.
American voters also disapprove 51 – 44 percent of President Obama’s handling of the economy and disapprove 56 – 37 percent of the way he is creating jobs.
Goodness, these Democrat Lemmings are determined to show the American people how stubborn and dumb they are (‘they’ being Democrats). As I noted yesterday, the 2010 elections will be a wipe out of the Dems, since they clearly require the 2×4 across the forehead to get the message about We The People – and all that stuff.
Update: Also as I said yesterday, President Obama is heading to be a classic one term disaster, like Carter before him:
Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) now disapprove.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Democrats approve while 88% of Republicans and 62% of unaffiliated voters disapprove.
These numbers might bounce around but I would wager they are about to set into cement for the coming years. The fact independents now disapprove of Obama (the most popular of Democrats) by 62% means they are now around 2 to 1 against the President. And once they decide to oppose him they will not be coming back. That is the way independents are.
