Bad news for Barry ...

Here's some bad news for Barry:

Fewer registered voters nationwide — 44 percent — currently approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance than disapprove — 47 percent. When Marist last asked about the president’s approval rating in December, 46 percent thought well of Obama’s job performance while 44 percent gave him low marks. For the first time since taking office, a majority of Independents — 57 percent — disapproves of how he is doing in the role. 29 percent approve, and 14 percent are unsure.

Oh, and there's this:

According to the latest Gallup poll, President Obama is underwater — higher disapproval than approval — in six of nine categories. He's at a 48/49 split on terrorism, a 36/60 split on health care, 36/61 split on the economy, and 32/64 split on the deficit.

Among independents, his approval is at 35 percent on Iran, 24 percent on health care, 29 percent on the economy, 24 percent on the deficit.

What will be interesting to watch is how far, and how fast, Democratic congressional candidates run away from one Barry Obama as the fall campaign heats up. Someone needs to ask Roy Herron if he'll be inviting Obama to come to West Tennessee.
