When tracking President Obama’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results can be seen in the graphics below.
For the month of April, the president’s Total Job Approval Rating fell another two points from 52% in March to 50%. That’s the lowest level measured since last September.
In December, it reached 56%, the highest level since May 2009. Prior to the election, that rating had remained in the narrow range of 44% to 49% for two years straight.”
(CNSNews.com) – 9.5 million Americans have left the workforce during the presidency of Barack Obama, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Mario’s note: In case you wonder why I keep speaking out: Your voice is weakening Obama. Whether it is through prayer, or speaking out to those you know, it is important for you to realize the effect you are having on the national situation. This is not just about Obama, it is about people sickening of the entire political correctness gone amok phenomenon.
You need to realize that a mood change is in the wind, the grass roots of this nation are disgusted and weary of the unending removal of rights and the celebration of immorality. Obama’s last firewall, the media is showing signs of erosion. Keep praying, keep speaking out, keep believing.
