Description

"The president's national numbers look bad, but his polling in battleground states is even worse, and the debt limit standoff hasn't helped him." So writes columnist Josh Kraushaar in the latest edition of The Atlantic magazine. The headline above Kraushaar's article reads: "If the election were held today, Obama would lose in a landslide." Extending his remarks, Kraushaar says, "President Obama's job approval rating in the latest national polls has been in the danger zone, ranging from 42 percent (Gallup) to 47 percent (ABC News/Washington Post), with every survey showing him with higher unfavorables than favorables. "Needless to say, it is not a good place for a president to be, especially since his numbers have worsened over the last two months."
