Falling to Earth

A remarkable piece in the Wall Street Journal from Doug Schoen and Scott Rasmussen must be very troubling to the Obama administration.

It reveals that there are widespread doubts and misgivings about President Obama's policies and initiatives -- and significant disagreement with the left wing ideology underlying them. 

Despite the media's continued emphasis on Obama's supposed "widespread support," Schoen and Rasmussen note that, in fact, Mr. Obama's approval rate is "below George W. Bush in an analogous period in 2001."

One last heartening piece of news?  "Almost half [of Americans] disagree with the idea that no one can earn a living or live 'an American life' without protection and empowerment from the federal government.  Only one-third agree."

Read the whole thing.  Happy Friday.
