Barack Obama is on track to have the worst jobs record of any president in the modern era. He is presiding over the weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression — not to mention the first credit rating downgrade in American history, the longest stretch of high unemployment since the Great Depression, chronic unemployment that is worse than the Great Depression, a housing crisis that is worse than the Great Depression, a standard of living for Americans that has fallen further and more steeply than at any time since the government began recording it five decades ago, and a record increase in the number of people who are in poverty.
Yet Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll reports that 47% of voters say they somewhat approve of the president’s job performance. So how many of the 47 percent are still not paying attention, and how many are just plain stupid? Obviously, if they are not paying attention by now, they are stupid.
