There's a lot of overblown talk right now about how President Obama has righted
his political ship since the midterm election by helping to force through an
abundance of mostly liberal legislation in the lame duck congressional
session. A Rasmussen poll
released yesterday presents a very different conclusion. The poll shows that, by
a margin of 3 to 2 (39 percent to 26 percent), likely American voters who have a
strong opinion about Obama's performance strongly disapprove of his performance
– the exact same ratio (45 to 30 percent at that time) as on Election Day.
