Americas Trust in Obama Plummets

Sphere: Related Content

Ten, count 'em ten different issues and The One has cratered in all:

WASHINGTON (CNN) – For the first time since he took over in the White House, Americans don't see eye to eye with President Barack Obama on the important issues, according to a new national poll. But the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey does indicate that a majority approve of how Obama's handling his duties as president.

According to the poll, which was released Tuesday, 48 percent of people questioned say that they agree with Obama on the issues that matter most to them, with 51 percent saying no. That's a switch from April, when 57 percent said they agreed with the president on important issues, with 41 percent disagreeing.
His personal numbers still are over 50% in most polls, which is odd given the country doesn't agree with the prez on, well, just about everything as this chart from Moe Lane shows:

National security is down eight points, education is down eight points, abortion is down (?) and government ethics is at 29%. That's a tailspin and it all occurred in one single month.

He's essentially lost the majority of the nation on every single issue we care about and his dithering on Afghanistan will only add to the morass we're feeling. In short, things ain't looking good in Obamanation. I blame Bush of course (when does the statute of limitations run which the previous prez is blamed?).

Note this is a CNN poll so there's bound to be some bias but even the last-place network can't spin it and put lipstick on it. Imagine what the numbers would have been in this WaPo poll if they actually played it straight.
