President Obama’s Gallup approval rating found a new bottom floor today, dipping for the first time to 38 percent, one point below the record of 39 percent he set last week.
According to Gallup, some 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the job he is doing.
Looks like the decision to vacation in Martha’s Vineyard and tour of the Midwest in the big, scary bus has not helped the president’s popularity.
Obama needs to do three things. They’re very simple. And they might get him reelected.
1. He needs to propose a serious plan to reduce the budget deficit over the long haul by reining in entitlement programs.
2. He needs to propose lasting tax cuts that businesses and consumers know they can rely on while paying for them by closing some loopholes and cutting discretionary spending.
3. He needs to spend his Christmas vacation at a Holiday Inn in Topeka, Kansas.
There it is. The Obama reelection strategy. Do this instead of campaigning 14 months before Election Day and attacking and blaming Republicans and you might have a chance, Mr. President.
