"Wrong Track" numbers

Yahoo Newsroom:

Sixty-two percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track — the highest number recorded since just before Election Day in 2008 — and just one-third believe things are going to get better, a 7-point drop since a month ago and the lowest such number in the Obama presidency.

Gee, that's odd. What could the explanation?

Obama's biggest problem: He's lost the middle — the so-called independent and moderate voters who are generally given the most credit for his win back in 2008. According to the poll, 52 percent of self-described independent voters disapprove of the job Obama is doing. He's even losing [wrong tense] parts of his base. The poll finds Obama with 17 percent disapproval among Democrats — the highest number of his presidency.

No ponies?

Look! Over there! Sarah Palin is selling a commemorative plate!

NOTE I don't care which legacy party collapses first, so long as one does, and takes the other one with it. We might as well take the hit, in the hopes of something better instead of 2% less evil.

Surely not you, Lambert. Nor I.

(Nobody here but us ex-Dems. Only some of us are still wiping the kool-aid stains from around our mouths, though--Lady MacBeth-style.)

...When only 17 % of Democrats-- i.e., our "nominal allies"-- have come around to the disapproval column, after 18 months of solid godawfully bad Obama FAIL. At this rate we'll be in our first year under the Palin administration before a majority of these so-called Democrats have finally been awoken by the giant cluebat.

Yes. But I'd be curious how many people who used to identify themselves as Democrats still do now.
