President Barack Obama's popularity has plummeted to a record low, with just 45 percent of voters now approving of his performance, according to the latest Zogby International poll.
Asked whether they approve or disapprove of the president's job performance, just 45.3 percent of likely voters say they approve. That compares with 50.5 percent who disapprove of the job Obama is doing.
The results are a strong indication that contentious national debate over healthcare reform has taken a major toll on the president's popularity.
(Let's see...does this mean that the American peopke are now an "unAmerican mob"? Obama, like that other historical professor,Woodrow Wilson,has been defeated by reality. Congress may pass a bill this year,but it won't be "Pelosicare" or "Obamacare". How about "Bluedogcare"?)
