CNN Poll: Half the country disagrees with Obama on issues


Speaking of Polls, this one comes from CNN (evidently, one of the “real” news organizations unlike Fox News) and usually leans liberal. The O-man’s numbers suggest that 51% of the American people now disagree with him on the issues that matter most to them. Don’t count on him caring any time soon, though. Another day, another issue.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – For the first time since he took over in the White House, Americans don’t see eye to eye with President Barack Obama on the important issues, according to a new national poll. But the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey does indicate that a majority approve of how Obama’s handling his duties as president.

According to the poll, which was released Tuesday, 48 percent of people questioned say that they agree with Obama on the issues that matter most to them, with 51 percent saying no. That’s a switch from April, when 57 percent said they agreed with the president on important issues, with 41 percent disagreeing.

“Obama is facing crunch time on a number of controversial issues, from health care to financial regulation to cap and trade to Afghanistan,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “The fact that most Americans no longer agree with him on important issues makes his task harder.”
