One Week After Big Health Care Speech, Obama Loses His "Bounce"
President Obama has lost his 5-point "bounce" in the polls gained after making his big health care speech to Congress last Wednesday.
On Sept. 9th, the day he gave the speech, the RasmussenPresidential Approval Indexstood at -8. Within 5 days, Obama had gained 5 points, with the index at -3. Now, 8 days later, the index is back to -8.
That's the good news. Thebetternews is that the health care fight among the Democrats is picking up, with the very different House and Senate bills now set to do battle in public. And, it was reported on WOR radio this morning that work on the Cap & Trade bill will resume within the next couple of weeks. (I find that hard to believe, but these guys may just be that crazy!) And remember it was reported about a month ago that Obama's immigration reform is just around the corner!
With any luck, Obama will beat his record low of -14 within the next 2 or 3 weeks!
