In the latest CNN/ORC poll, conducted June 11-13, among all age groups, Barack Obama’s job approval rating is down to 45 percent, with 54 percent disapproval.
That’s big news, but what’s really shocking is that Mr. Obama is losing his mojo with America’s “I have a crush on Obama” crowd. Currently, Barry is getting only 48 percent approval from those ages 18 to 34, which is only 3 percent above his national average.
The last time the youth supported a candidate as ardently as Obama was supported in 2008, was when George McGovern was the Democratic candidate for president, which proves that in both 1972 and 2008, certain people were hitting the reefer really hard before hitting the polls.
The dilemma for Obama is that the lack of money to buy pot has caused the stoners to realize that the economy, joblessness, and out-of-control student loan debt for worthless degrees is a buzz kill delivered by a guy who claims he ran with the Choom Gang.
Therefore, the balloon hat-wearing, kazoo-blowing acolytes who’ve been clamoring for free contraceptives are also beginning to realize that having lots of government-facilitated sex is not enough incentive to refrain from using that treasured “Hope and Change” t-shirt as a shammy to dry off the car sitting in Mom’s driveway for which there’s no money to gas up.
