According to Rasmussen Reports, President Obama leads GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain by only five points. In addition, the president is drawing less than 40 percent support from those polled (39 percent v. 34 percent). And in a new Harris poll, Mr. Obama trails Representative Ron Paul by two points.
What this suggests is that Mr. Obama’s slide in the polls in accelerating, and it’s not clear just where the floor for him is. What we are witnessing is an Obama Meltdown, with the public turning hard and in overwhelming numbers against the president. We may soon get to the point where anyone short of a deceased person – Mel Gibson, Barry Bonds, Lady Gaga — may be within single digits of Mr. Obama in any given poll.
The Obama presidency is being crushed by events. So is Mr. Obama’s party. An open revolt among Democrats is getting closer by the day.
