Remember that big election a little over a year ago?
Remember all the desire for “hope and change?”
Remember all the chants of, “Yes we can, Yes we can?”
Remember all the Bush Derangement Syndrome, how low Bush’s approval rating had gotten and how badly people wanted to get rid of Bush?
Yeah, not so much.
In addition to finding that Obama is barely eking out a net approval rating, 49% to 47% unfavorable, the latest Public Policy Polling poll finds another interesting bit of information:
Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama’s declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they’d rather have his predecessor.
Can you hear the “oh, shit!” coming from the White House?
Let’s see, the fitting close line for those previous shouting “Yes we can!” should be:
“The grass is not always greener,”
“Be careful what you wish for”
“I told you so!”
