By Dave Andrusko It would seem that the Republican field of presidential candidates is now complete. A week after two pro-lifers announced they would not run—New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin—pro-abortion former New York City Mayor took himself out of the running today. His announcement to a gathering of Long …Continue reading "Looking Ahead to Tonight’s GOP Debate and Obama’s Declining Fortunes"
By Dave Andrusko The headline in today’s Washington Post suggests how nervous his media allies are becoming: “Opposition to Obama grows — strongly.” The immediate impetus for this gloom and doom analysis was yesterday’s Washington Post/ABC News poll (see here). As you may recall, the brunt of Tuesday’s story was pro-life businessman Herman Cain vaulting …Continue reading "Even the Washington Post Worries that Opposition to Obama’s is Growing “Strongly”"
By Dave Andrusko The last item for the day I had intended to be my first. But let me say just a few words and return to the topic tomorrow. Every sentient American knows that pro-abortion President Barack Obama’s approval ratings are approaching free fall. A new McClatchy-Marist poll showed Obama’s approval ratings at the …Continue reading "Obama’s Approval Numbers Sinking…."
By Dave Andrusko We oldsters remember the famous quote attributed to President Johnson after watching CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite deliver a highly pessimistic editorial on the progress of the Vietnam War in 1968. Supposedly Johnson told aides, “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.” Well, Chuck Todd is hardly Cronkite—he is NBC’s political …Continue reading "Obama Approval Ratings Continue to Sink"
By Dave Andrusko No sooner had I posted an item about President Obama faltering re-election prospects than our trusty readers sent along further evidence. Since it is the end of the day, let me quickly summarize the latest bad news for Obama. We talked about the single worst three-day average approval ratings of Obama’s time …Continue reading "Obama’s’ Numbers Continue to Fall"
By Dave Andrusko Today and tomorrow I’ll be trying to catch up on some of the many developments which took place while my family and I were on vacation. What I don’t get to early in the week I promise to address later on. For the Obama Administration watching its daily polls numbers must resemble …Continue reading "Obama’s Numbers Drop Resembles the Stock Market’s"
By Dave Andrusko Just to keep you up to speed….another poll, another round of bad news for pro-abortion President Barack Obama. The latest is a national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted July 20-24 which finds the President just a single point ahead in a hypothetical match up …Continue reading "When Will Obama Reach Bottom?"
By Dave Andrusko In Part One of National Right to Life News Today for Tuesday, I write about NRLC’s new comparison piece. It’s very much worth your time to see the positions of the eight declared Republican candidates for President, as contrasted with pro-abortion Barack Obama. Let me offer a few salient numbers of President …Continue reading "Obama’s Slumping Numbers Hit New Low"
By Dave Andrusko One last item to write before we post National Right to Life News Today for Tuesday. On anyone’s list of key states in the 2012 presidential sweepstakes, Florida will rank near the top. We’ve written many times about pro-abortion President Obama’s overall dismal approval ratings, regularly in (at best) the high 40s, …Continue reading "Obama Faces Huge Uphill Climb in Florida"
By Dave Andrusko Yet another poll, this time from the Washington Post/ABC News, illustrates how rapidly the ground is shifting beneath the feet of pro-abortion President Barack Obama. And as was the case with yesterday’s discussion of recent USA Today/Gallup polls, just how significant those changes are requires that the reader go “inside the numbers.”Continue reading "Recent polls confirm “New Normal” for Obama is Low Approval Ratings, Public Lacking Confidence in him"
By Dave Andrusko The sub-headline was innocuous—“Obama seeks reshaped image for 2012 run”—but by the time you finish Susan Page’s page one story, Obama sounds more like a candidate whose 2008 image is in tatters than someone whose ‘brand” can be salvaged by a mere “refurbishing.” The headline is more revealing, “What comes after hope?” …Continue reading "Obama Attempting to Refashion ‘Brand’"
By Dave Andrusko Since we’ve already run a couple of stories this week about pro-abortion President Barack Obama’s electoral weaknesses, let me end the week with one more.
