NYC Letter: On The Fail Trail -- Little Things Add Up IV
Day 1,190 of CHOPE
Mr. Obama has improved in the polls.
OBAMA 13TH QUARTER APPROVAL UP TO 45.9%
Remains Below The Averages Of
Presidents Who Were Re-Elected
POLL April 20, 2012 (Gallup)
Can he string this out till November?
We pick up Mr. Obama's epic re-election bid here.
April 13, 2012 (CNBC) - The renowned former General Electric CEO chided the president for blaming others for economic woes. Jack Welch:It was the insurance executives in health care. It was the bankers in the collapse. It was the oil companies as oil prices go up. It was Congress if things didn’t go the way he wanted. And recently it’s been the Supreme Court. ... Surely his supporters must think this particular tactic is effective, but there can be no denying that the country is more polarized than when Obama took office.
Mr. Welch is a one percenter, so he will be eaten and won't be heard from again. How about the less digestible 99 percenters?
POLL April 25, 2012 (Rasmussen) - Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters say the country is heading in the right direction, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken the week ending Sunday, April 22.
This finding is up two points from last week and back to the level found for the previous three weeks.
Looking good, looking good. A mere 63% think America on the wrong track. A huge two-point improvement. Let's move on to Mr. Obama's base.

Ba-ba-Boston of the bluey blue state Massachusetts? Isn't that the home of the Ted Kennedy Senate seat?

April 20, 2012 (NYT) - President Obama’s re-election campaign is straining to raise the huge sums it is counting on to run against Mitt Romney, with sharp dropoffs in donations from nearly every major industry forcing it to rely more than ever on small contributions and a relative handful of major donors.
... With big checks no longer flowing as quickly into his campaign, Mr. Obama is leaning harder on his grass-roots supporters, whose small contributions make up well over half of the money he raised through the end of March, according to reports filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission.
Campaign Barry is "leaning harder" on the base for money to win back that same base. Good luck with that!
At least his party is solidly behind Mr. Obama.
April 19, 2012 (National Journal) - Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who has done more than any other Democrat up for reelection this year to distance himself from President Obama, said he does not know if he will vote for Obama or presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney in November.
Even Jeeeeemie can only manage a wobbly "Yes, But" prediction.
JIMMAH: OBAMA WILL WIN RE-ELECTION,
BUT I'D BE "COMFORTABLE" WITH ROMNEY
April 25, 2012 (Townhall)
On the bright side, the MSM is again prepared to do its bit (and this) for Mr. Obama. So if Mr. Obama can't buy his re-election, perhaps the MSM can win over the electorate with soft-focus reporting on Mr. Obama's "likeability".
Fail momentum. Seven months out.Posted by Damian at April 28, 2012 11:45 PM
