American People Reject Obama's Agenda

Via NRO, NBC Poll news, NRO's Jim Geraghty quoting the Wall Street Journal:

A solid majority — 58% — said that the president and Congress should focus
on keeping the budget deficit down, even if takes longer for the economy to recover . . .

Mr. Obama's overall job approval and personal ratings have slipped, particularly among independent voters. His job approval rating now stands at 56%, down from 61% in April. Among independents, it dropped from nearly two-to-one approval to closely divided.

When asked what the most important economic issue facing the country is, 24% cited the deficit, vs. just 11% who named health care.

Bailout GM - favor 35%, oppose 53%. opposed by 3 to 2 ratio. Let's be clear: Obama is bailing out the UAW not GM, putting the companies (unnecessarily) under govt control, cost taxpayers billions while saving no jobs longterm,& screwing the bondholders in GM and Chrysler both, while also throwing profitable rural dealerships under the bus. Unless you are a union leader or one of the politically connected dealerships there is nothing to like here.
