And in 1992 GHWB was riding an 80% approval rating. He seemed unstoppable. And again, we all know what happened to him.By May, Gallup gave Jimmy Carter a lead over Reagan of 49 to 41, higher than Obama today.
Carter suffered a landslide defeat.
What happened to both Carter and Bush was the same thing. The ECONOMY. And unless this current economy turns around a LOT, Mr Obama may suffer those same consequences. He will be fired.
He spent all his capital in his first two years not by growing the economy so jobs could be created, but rather by pushing through a health insurance plan the country did not want. Remember, it passed the House by only 5 votes. And 62 Democrats who voted for it were fired in 2010.
Everybody can claim this poll, that poll, but the American people will vote with their wallets, as they do every time.
