New York Times reported Obama's reserve of good will among the public is running dry and that two polls reported a majority of Americans no longer trust the president or believe that he is being honest with them.

USA frequently posts dumb comments and never knows when to step away from them.

Of course, how would you know this as you tried to support someone saying the Tea Party protests Military Funerals yesterday so anything is believable to you.

Step away from Daily Kos and try reading a few news articles on Yahoo a day.

You're an idiot, the Rasmussen poll showed a one point lead, as well as Gallop, for Romney which is in the margin of error. Many polls showed ties with just a few having Obama at +3. All were in the margin of error.

Learn something about polls, skippy! That was dumb!

Botched ACA Rollout Hammers Obama; Job Disapproval Reaches a Career High

The president’s job approval rating has fallen to 42 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, down 13 percentage points this year and 6 points in the past month to match the lowest of his presidency. Fifty-five percent disapprove, a record. And 70 percent say the country’s headed seriously off on the wrong track – up 13 points since May to the most in two years.

ACA – Skepticism about the Affordable Care Act looks to be the driving force in Obama’s troubles. Americans by nearly 2-1, 63-33 percent, disapprove of his handling of implementation of the new health care law. And the public by 57-40 percent now opposes the law overall, its most negative rating to date, with opposition up by 8 points in the past month alone.

LOL, that is like saying nanner, nanner.

USA saying "must suck to be you" showed her/his age. I was making fun of the use of the term and the usual opening it leaves.

Try to keep up.

Same reason the 'rats do.

You have a lot of learning to do. Both parties rely heavily on polls and polling numbers. Polls ARE reality to politicians.

If you think they don't, you're even more ignorant than I thought, ma'am.

You mean like Amy Fried's Pollways?
Like it or not, Rasmussen is a respected, scientific polling site. Only far left progressive groups would question their data.
Scott Rasmussen left Rasmussen Research in July 2013...since then, the Rasmussen poll has become the major poll most supportive of Obama....

Polling companies cannot predict how many of the likely voters they speak with and survey will actually get out and vote.

It's not brain surgery, though to you it probably looks like quantum physics.

DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif.— This financially troubled city declared a fiscal emergency Tuesday in an effort to avert a second federal bankruptcy filing.

The City Council voted unanimously to declare the emergency as the city grapples with a $6 million gap between revenues and spending.

Interim City Manager Bob Adams has said declaring a fiscal emergency would enable the city to negotiate with contractors and labor groups to cut expenses.

If no action is taken, the city of 27,000 people near Palm Springs will run out of money by March, officials said.

The city previously filed for bankruptcy in 2001 after a legal judgment.

Three other California cities sought Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection last year in the aftermath of the economic downturn, pension costs and the loss of state redevelopment funds.

Desert Hot Springs, a modest bedroom community known for its boutique spas and hotels, expects to take in nearly $14 million in revenue during this fiscal year while spending $20 million. The city has already slashed its non-sworn workforce by 66 percent in the past eight years but has been overspending for several years.

"If significant action is not taken, the projected depletion of the city's reserves to meet the city's financial obligations would cause the city to file bankruptcy," Adams said in a staff report.

If the deficit lingers, it's unclear how Desert Hot Springs could remain a viable city, the report said.

This is only going to get worse when people take a close look at their new plans.

The DC plan excludes coverage for hearing aids, routine eye-care, dental care for adults, bariatric surgery, cosmetic surgery (no excepts listed for reconstructive) and infertility treatment.
