Slip Sliding Away - Obama Poll Numbers

CBS is polling the president at 46% approval rating. Another interesting stat from CBS is that only 36% approve of Obama's handling of the healthcare debate.  

Rasmussen has the President at 46% approval rating. 26% strongly approve and 40% strongly disapprove -14 approval index rating.

A 2 to 1 margin believes that the bailouts hurt the economy.

55% disapprove of the healthcare reform bills before Congress.

The President's ratings are falling on a continuous basis.

I am a Obama supporter who thinks healthcare overhaul is a huge mistake. I want to help the poor afford groceries too, but I don't want the gov't to overhaul the food distribution system.

They're having to sell this by saying the gov't can take care of the average person's healthcare expenditures better than people can do individually. That goes against some of the basic principles of the US, IMHO. The ave person needs to take care of himself and do a little to help people less fortunate. The ave person should not need or want gov't handholding.

I have to steal that line about the groceries. It is a great one.

You are 100% right. There are plenty of other things that we can do to help the needy without turning our great healthcare system into yet another big government program that doesn't work.
