"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

New Poll Suggests Wealthy and Not Middle Class Support Obama


"Bring me the arugula. And let the proles eat ObamaCare."

Gee, I wonder if Obama's growing unpopularity with the middle class has something to do with Obama's budget that hits the middle class hardest, or the shrinking median income of average households, or soaring gas prices, or an agenda driven by Leftist ideology rather than the problems this country actually faces, or his constant and petty attacks against political opponents, or record unemployment. So much to choose from...

From The Examiner piece by Paul Bedard:

President Obama's approval numbers are starting to mimic Mitt Romney's.

According to a new Economist/YouGov poll, it's the rich -- not the poor or middle class -- who back Obama more despite his 2012 campaign attacking the rich.

The poll found that fewer than half of those with incomes less than $100,000 per year approve of Obama's performance, while he enjoys a 54 percent approval rating among those with incomes higher than that.

Those earning less than $40,000 a year disapprove of the president's performance, 51 percent to 45 percent. Those earning $40,000 to $100,000 disapprove by a rate of 50 percent to 48 percent.
 
This seems to be pretty much the typical result of Leftist policies worldwide. The politically connected wealthy make more and more money, like Sen. Feinstein's husband for instance, while the middle-class is forced to shoulder more of the bill and get less in return, and the lower class fails to receive what they were promised.

And this is just domestic policies. This doesn't even factor in Obama's lies about Benghazi and Fast & Furious, his betrayal of our allies in Poland and Israel, his allowing and even openly supporting Islamist regimes to take control in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries.

Obama's list of accomplishments is daunting.
