Obama’s Mandate
by

According to this Washington Post poll, it’s much less intimidating than I would have thought. Asked, “Do you think Obama has a mandate to carry out the agenda he presented during the presidential campaign, or should he compromise on the things the Republicans strongly oppose?” more Americans said he had a mandate, but only by a margin of 50 percent to 46 percent. Given his high approval ratings and Democratic control of Congress, Obama is pretty much going to get what he wants. However, this poll reminds us how tenuous the mandate is even for a tremendously popular president. Obama understands this, which is why he is eager to get Republican support that he doesn’t need. For Republicans, there’s no need to strengthen Obama’s hand by giving him bipartisan cover for a bad bill that will balloon the deficit without helping the economy.
