Obama losing independents

Obama downcastThe latest Marist Poll shows 57 percent of independent voters don’t approve of President Obama’s job performance — up from 44 pecent in early December.  Political Science Professor Graham Wilson, author of “Only in America? American Politics in Comparative Perspective,” says it’s ironic a great campaigner like Oama is losing his communications touch.

“His health care proposals scare people, although very moderate compared with many options, and he’s not getting credit for stopping the disintegration of the economy he inherited.  Part of the new strategy for the administration has to be correcting this.”
