AOL decided to jump into the “Obama’s poll numbers are falling off a cliff” bandwagon with a small article the site posted up yesterday. In addition to the article they gave readers the opportunity to offer their opinions on six different questions regarding Obama’s job performance and as of 10:30 pm CST 7-21-09 each query had well over 200,000 votes.
(July 20) — Is the honeymoon over? Six months into his presidency, a new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows approval ratings for President Barack Obama’s handling of health care, the economy and the budget deficit sliding.
As he starts a major push for health-care reform legislation, approval for Obama’s handling of the issue dropped to 49 percent, down four points from a month ago….
I guess the Washington Post/ABC people limited their polling to Washington DC, Detroit and Berkeley CA because the little unscientific (you know, the kind where everyone has a shot at having their say) AOL poll after the article shows Obama just-getting-his-ass KICKED!

Looks like all those wild eyed racists in the Republican party are the only ones aware of this AOL poll. Yeah, that would have to be the explanation. It couldn’t possibly be the result of the horrible job this clearly way in over his head community organizer has done in only six months in office now could it?
