About Those Obama Approval Rating Polls...

Supposedly a majority of the country has confidence in Obama's policies, according to various polls. As we all know, we need to take them with a very large dose of salt. I think there are two more indicative "polls" that are more appropriate. The consumer confidence chart to the right clearly shows that confidence has fallen off a cliff. The other "poll," (at least according to Obama) of course, is the stock market. Let's just say that a 30% decline since election day is not giving Obama a thumbs up.
