Historically, it's the lowest rating in history (and the biggest slide)for any president in US history at this point in his administration.
Instead of thinking about what this might mean, the White House chose to respond with its characteristic arrogance, emanating from White House spokeshole Robert Gibbs:
"I tell you, if I was a heart patient and Gallup was my EKG, I'd visit my doctor," Gibbs said. "If you look back, I think five days ago, there was an 11-point spread, now there's a 1-point spread. I mean, I'm sure a 6-year-old with a crayon could do something not unlike that. I don't put a lot of stake in, never have, in the EKG that is the daily Gallup trend."
He added: "I don't pay a lot of attention to the meaninglessness of it."
I assure you, this mouthy lil' punk wasn't talking that way when the polls were in Zero's favor 11 months ago...not at all.
Six-year-olds with a crayon, hmmm? In a poll that normally skews towards Obama?
Oh, some more good news...while Zero's approval rating is plummeting downwards, Sarah Palin's has been rising...and according to the polls, Sarah Palin's approval rating is only one point below Obama's ..and climbing. The two lines will no doubt cross on th echarts shortly, just like Obama's approval and disapproval ratings already have..
