Gallup’s presidential approval rating tracker is currently the talk of the town, as Barack Obama’s approval rating fell to the lowest point in his presidency—a mere 39%. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering what planet those 39% are living on and/or how they’ve managed to get this far in life with such thick blinders on.
Regardless, it’s a step in the right direction. Plenty of Americans—particularly Independents—are awakening to the reality of our President’s failed policies, recognizing the enormous distinction between his record and rhetoric, and gearing up to hold him accountable. Take a peek at some recent indicators of election trouble for our Campaigner-in-chief come 2012:
**Rasmussen: 54% see Obama as more liberal than they are
**Gallup: Small-business owners’ revenue and hiring expectations down
**Rasmussen: 54% favor repeal of health care law
**CNN/ORC: Democrat support for Obama’s re-election fades as “support for Obama’s re-nomination has fallen 11 percentage points since June”
**Rasmussen: 67% favor finding spending cuts in all government programs
The real question is whether or not 2012 GOP candidates will do the tough PR work necessary to expose this President’s job-killing economic policies, foreign-policy ineptitude, complete and utter lack of leadership, and unparalleled efforts to expand the size and scope of federal overreach. Will they make it their business to articulate why this country is so exceptional and how our current Campaigner-in-chief is jeopardizing that? Will they tear the Left’s class-warfare nonsense to shreds while offering real pro-growth solutions? Will they vocalize why conservative principles—the complete antithesis of everything championed by this President—are key to getting us back on track, as they have been throughout history?
Americans are hungry for real economic recovery and bold leaders who aren’t afraid to call our President’s phony talk and flimsy slogans what they are.
2012ers, pay attention to the trends above. The people are on your side. Now get out there and make some waves.
