CNN Poll: Obama Underwater on Key Issues

@ IVotedForObama McInsane would've started WWIII too. It seems that, post-LBJ (who would fit right into today's GOP, btw), Democrat presidents tend to be the lesser of two evils. Esp. when the GOP controls congress and pretends to be for small-govt. to spite them.

The good news for Obama admirers?  He's back at 51 percent overall approval in this survey -- as opposed to quite a lot of early 2013 polling.  The bad news?  His approval rating is upside down on virtually every major issue:

Economy: 44% Approve, 54% Disapprove

Federal Budget Deficit: 38% Approve, 58% Disapprove

Taxes: 46% Approve, 52% Disapprove

Illegal Immigration: 44% Approve, 50% Disapprove

Gun Policy: 45% Approve, 52% Disapprove

Health care policy: 44% Approve, 54% Disapprove
