My faith restored! Well, some of it, perhaps. Maybe Americans still do care about the Constitution. Musty old document written by men with more knowledge about history, philosophy and human nature in their ingrown toenails than most of our politicians, including former Constitutional professor/lecturers, have in their entire goopy reservoirs of grey matter.
The Fox News poll finds that 74 percent think end running Congress through executive orders is “not the way our government is supposed to work.” This includes 93 percent of Republicans, 80 percent of independents, but also, surprisingly enough, 54 percent of Democrats.
Meanwhile, a plurality of voters, 24 percent, give Obama an F on the economy. Only nine percent give him a A, while 22 percent give him a B, another 22 percent rate him a C, and nine percent say he gets an “incomplete.”
Voters continue to be pessimistic over the future of the economy. Fifty eight percent think the worst is yet to come. That’s up from 52 percent a year ago, and it’s the highest level recorded since April 2009.
Obama is also failing at what he says is the issue nearest and dearest to him, decreasing income inequality. Sixty percent of voters think federal policies during Obama’s presidency have increased the income gap – a number that included 52 percent of Democrats.
Oh, and 51 percent of voters voted for Obama in 2012. Go figyah.
