Description

A year after his sweeping election victory - and ten months after he was inaugurated amid widespread public optimism - the new president's support is slipping in the polls, faith in his policies is vanishing, and the opposition is smelling blood. But what's actually most remarkable about the trajectory of Obama's numbers - and of his presidency - is how closely it hews to the model of Reagan's first term. And if it's the Reagan path that Obama is following, then Republicans might want to re-think their giddiness.
