A pair of new polls find that with less than four months until the midterm elections, Americans’ confidence in President Obama’s handling of the economy continues to crater.
A new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that just 43 percent approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, with 54 percent disapproving. The poll also shows waning confidence in Obama overall, and Republicans creeping ahead in the generic Congressional ballot.
These results are further confirmed by a CBS News poll, with 40 percent saying they had confidence in Obama, and 54 percent saying they did not.
This puts Democrats in a tough spot, because there are now only three employment reports left between now and the midterm elections, so there really aren’t that many opportunities for new data to emerge that show improvement in the labor market.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
