But youíll have a hell of a time finding it at either USA Today or at Gallup, which partnered with the newspaper for the poll. The USA Today lead on the survey is that approval for the war in Afghanistan has dropped since the Wikileaks exposure of internal documents from the military, and that decline is notable, a 12-point plummet in just five months from 48% to 36% approval. But they buried the real lead, which is that Obama is now struggling to keep his approval ratings in the 40s (via Jim Geraghty):

Public support for President Obamaís Afghanistan war policy has plummeted amid a rising U.S. death toll and the unauthorized release of classified military documents, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows.

Support for Obamaís management of the war fell to 36%, down from 48% in a February poll. Now, a record 43% also say it was a mistake to go to war there after the terrorist attacks in 2001.

Meanwhile, in the fifth paragraph:

Only 41% of those surveyed Tuesday through Sunday approved of the way Obama is handling his job, his lowest rating in the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll since he took office in January 2009. In Gallupís separate daily tracking poll, his approval was at 45% Monday. ...http://hotair.com/archives/2010/08/03/usa-today-poll-puts-obama-approval-at-41/

The poll numbers are pretty consistent, no matter who does the polling.

I think Rasmussen has Dear Leader at about 41% as well. In the past, they've all been close enough that it would be hard for anyone but Stupidicus to doubt them. Things are looking good, with barely 3 months to election. Hope his poll numbers continue downhill and the dems take a serious whuppin' come November.

Obummer is finding it harder and harder to find Democratic candidates who want him to campaign for them. It is the kiss of death and Democrats are running away from him. .

Even with the mass media on their side, LyingRats and DummyRATS cannot hide themselves from the truth. The media tries, but fails to cover for these RATS. America sees through these liberal traitors of their country.
