Why Is Obama Still Popular With The American People?
Only One Reason:
The Republican Party!
President Barack Obama’s administration has had lapses of administration failures and frustration during his early days as President, just as all new Presidents have experienced. Time is the greatest teacher for Presidents and their administrative staffs, the same as in all past administrations. This President, however, has taken America and our policies on a sharp left-hand turn in policy. During a once in a lifetime economic slowdown, this President is attempting to re-write much of the American success story. The American media in general is not reporting this hard policy shift, instead dealing with major issues like the first family’s new dog or the latest fashion trend offered by our new First Lady. Errors in judgment are quickly reported and then dropped from all future discussions. The hard right-wing conservative media sources are screaming to their listeners about this overt shift in policy to the far-left with expected results.
The President’s popularity numbers have of course dropped from the inauguration initial numbers, since the President had roughly two full months of nothing but positive news reporting from the election until inauguration day. This policy shift has taken his popularity down but not to the devastating levels that would have happened if any other President of recent history had tried such a sudden shift in governing principles. Yes, the President’s popularity numbers are down, but they are still in a very strong positive all things considered. Why is this? That is the question you must ask yourself.
Why is President Obama still so popular? Several reasons for this popularity are obvious.
