Obama losing confidence in Americans, new poll shows
President Obama now lacks faith in American voters’ ability to make rational decisions about 60 percent of his waking hours, a new poll has shown.
It was the worst approval rating Obama has given the public since the start of his presidency, when he expressed confidence in the electorate’s ability to assess the running of the country by its political leaders a record 86 percent of his sentient time.
But his approval numbers were even lower for Congress, which Obama has no confidence in 97 percent of the time he is awake, though in his dreams he often has a cordial relationship with it.
The Star Magazine/SciFi Channel Presidential Opinion Poll samples the President’s state of mind 200 times during the day and night to compile its data.
The magazine said irrational opposition to Obama’s health care measure, the burgeoning Tea Party movement and the birther controversy had all worked to erode Obama’s confidence in the electorate.
In recent weeks, the public has lost more points by its total failure to pay any attention whatever to the financial reform bill and its confusion over whom to blame for the Gulf oil disaster.
“Obama used to think Americans were basically sane,” said Dr. Jordan Ramesh, director of the poll. “But now he is finally waking up to the frightening realization that the public is completely irrational.”
Ramesh said a small but growing portion of Obama’s brain would like to go back to Chicago and become part owner of a sports franchise.
