Its the economy stupid and its not good news for Obama
9% say the economy is good or excellent. I'm worried about who those 9% are, but besides them a full 54% say its poor. If that continues we will be looking at a new president in 2012. When these numbers are this bad incumbents don't get re-elected. Most people think elections unfairly favor incumbents (another poll at rasmussen). But that is really the truth. When people think the economy is good, the incumbent is favored. When people think the economy is poor the non-incumbent is favored. Yes the economy was already faltering when Bush beat Gore.
