Here is the best evidence that America is losing confidence in Barack Obama, one of the Progressive Democrats “big guys” James Carville and his group Democracy Corps ran a poll and it  showed that America is not happy with the POTUS and the Progressive Democrats running congress.

The national mood continues to sour, with the share who see the country headed in the wrong direction moving up 4 points since mid-January, up to 62 percent, the highest mark in a year. The survey also shows concerns about the economy continuing to grow. And even though the Republican brand remains badly damaged, with no improvement in favorable ratings for their party, the GOP continues to gain ground in a named congressional ballot, with the Democratic House candidate now narrowly lagging by 47 to 44 percent. The movement away from Democrats is especially strong among independents, and independent women in particular.

  • Generally speaking, do you think that things in this country are going in the right direction, or do you feel things have gotten pretty seriously off on the wrong track? Wrong Track- Likely Voters 62%
  • Presidential Approval: Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president? Likely Voters 47% Approve/48% Disapprove
  • Generic Congressional Ballot: I know it is a long way off, but thinking about the elections this November, if the election for U.S. Congress were held today, would you be voting for (DEMOCRATIC HOUSE CANDIDATE)or (REPUBLICAN HOUSE CANDIDATE) Likely Voters: Vote Democrat 39%, Lean Democrat 4%- Vote GOP 40% Lean GOP 6%
  • Generally speaking, do you feel America is more safe or less safe from foreign threats and dangers than two years ago? Likely Voters: More Safe 41%, Less Safe 44%
  • And would you say the United States is more respected or less respected in the world than it was two years ago? Likely Voters: More Respected 41%/Less Respected 51%
  • Now I’m going to read you a list of issues. For each one, I would like you to tell me if you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job on that issue.

         Issue                                        (Approve/Disapprove)
                                                             
          Economy …………………………………..(42%/57%)
          National security ………………………….(57%/40%)
          Fighting terrorism…………………………(54%/41%)
          Interrogation and
          prosecution of terrorism suspects……….(44%/51%)

  • Do you approve or disapprove of the job Democrats in Congress are doing on national security? Likely Voters: 41% Approve, 51% Disapprove.
  • Do you approve or disapprove of the job Republicans in Congress are doing on national security? Likely Voters: 45% Approve, 46% Disapprove
  • When it comes to national security, do you think President Obama is doing better, worse, or about the same as President George W. Bush? Likely Voters: 38% Better, 33% Worse, 28% Same
  • Now I am going to ask you something different. I am going to read a list of issues and I want you to tell me whether, overall, you think the Democrats or the Republicans would do a better job with this issue. If you do not know, just tell me and we will move on to the next item.

                                                           Likely Voters
                                           (Dems Better/GOP Better)
The economy ……………………………………..(43%/44%)
Keeping America safe…………………………(34%/47%)
National Security…………………………………..(33%/50%)
Improving global respect for America …….(47%/34%)
Ensuring a strong military ……………………..(27%/58%)
Combating terrorism………………………………(35%/47%)
The budget deficit ………………………………..(38%/43%)

  • Now something different. As you may know, over Christmas a Nigerian man was arrested for trying to set off a bomb on a plane headed from Amsterdam to Detroit. Thinking about what you have heard about this incident and how the Obama administration has responded, do those events make you feel more confident or less confident about the Obama administration’s handling of national security? Likely Voters More Confident 42%, Less Confident 46%

Carville’s group says this should be a wake-up call to the Democrats.

A new Democracy Corps-Third Way survey provides a wake-up call for President Obama, his party, and progressives on national security. This is the first of what will be a series of jointly conducted, in-depth analyses by Democracy Corps and Third Way of the public’s views on national security, and the results are sobering. Although the public continues to give the president strong ratings on a range of national security issues – indeed, above his overall approval rating – there is evidence of rising public concern about the president’s handing of these issues. Historical doubts about the Democratic Party on national security show signs of reviving and many voters worry the president and his administration are not dealing forcefully enough with terrorist suspects. Additionally, the troubled economy is driving down public perceptions of America’s strength and standing in the world.

 What the Carville, the President and their Democratic party lemmings don’t understand is that changing the way the message is given will not change public opinion. It is the POLICIES that America is uncomfortable, not the message.
