A recent poll from ‘The Hill’ newspaper shows voters in a very pessimistic mood about Obama and his policies. Is it time to bring back the ‘misery index’?
Tom Hanks, George Clooney, and Elle McPherson can glow on and on about their magnificent boy prince all they like, but they aren’t affected by the price of food, oil, an economy in the tank and devastating unemployment.
As for normal Americans….
On economic issues, 62 percent of voters say Obama’s policies will increase the debt, while 25 percent think they will cut it, and by a 48-percent-to-38-percent margin, voters believe those policies will increase joblessness rather than put people back to work.
On energy, 58 percent say Obama’s policies will result in gasoline prices increasing, while just 20 percent expect them to cut prices — and by a 46-percent-to-36-percent margin, voters believe they will cause the United States to become even more dependent on foreign oil.
The thing that always amazes me about these polls are the 20-25% that answer contrary to the majority opinion. What about Obama’s policies would make you believe that the result will reduce the debt or decrease energy prices and our dependence on foreign oil?
What color is the sky in their world? People this ignorant should not allowed to vote. Unfortunately, it’s their right, much to our national detriment.
