Now, a new Gallup Poll finds, Obama's public approval rating has suddenly fallen to the worst level since he took office however many years ago that seems. He was right around 70% in January of 2009.
Today, Gallup reports, the ex-senator has plunged to a 46% approval rating.
Today, even more disapprove of his presidency, 48%. That seems right down there in the Sarah Palin neighborhood.
True, Obama's approval ratings had dropped faster during his first year in office than any recent rookie president. They had hovered around the 50% level the last couple of months.
But in recent days Gallup found Americans suddenly souring even more until more disapprove than approve.
The only possible reason to explain this drop is the public does not like the president's NCAA tournament picks. Or maybe the fact that the administration's $787 billion economic stimulus plan has stimulated unemployment up to 9.7%.
Unless this dramatic poll drop perhaps has a little something to do with Obama's determined drive to....
...push through/down/up/over/into the $940 billion healthcare legislation that seems to have dominated virtually every moment of his public thought and talk for months.
