Dropping like a rock
Virtually all of President Obama's vital poll numbers are dropping like a rock. The two most telling polls are job approval and leadership ability.
Job approval- 60% approved in February. Now his approval is at 47% (only 10% higher than mean, old, nasty, incompetent, George W. Bush).
Leadership ability- 64% thought he was a good leader in February. Now only 45% think so.

Polls can be deceiving, no doubt, but still, these numbers represent the definition of "dropping like a rock". We're talking less than 6 months.
Why the swing? I think it's because Obama seemed, to quite a few people anyways (not me), to want to go slightly left of center legislatively. Instead he has gone radically far left...farther than any president ever. He's a liberal socialist plain and simple. Rightfully, he's freaking people out.
