WASHINGTON, D.C. – Roll that Tom Petty video, because President Obama has been in free fall for several weeks. Or at least his poll numbers.
The latest free fall comes from the CNN/ORC International poll showing the majority of Americans just don’t trust Obama, 53 percent.
That’s a far fall from December 2008 when 72% said yes, they think he’s honest and trustworthy.
On the question of whether President Obama is someone they admire, 56% said no, which is a total reversal from just six months ago.
Meantime, here’s something that will make you say: what the Ford?
Toronto’s booze guzzling, coke snorting, “I-got-plenty-to-eat-at-home mayor Rob Ford is more popular in his own city than the US Congress is here in this country.
New polls show Ford enjoying an approval rate of 42%.
You heard right, 42% of Toronto citizens say they approve of his performance in office.
Apparently, what they say is true, that things go better with coke.
