Obama Losing Independents

President Barack Obama’s approval rating has dropped below 50 percent as he begins his latest and possibly last effort to pass health care. The survey was conducted the week (Feb. 15-21) of the health care summit and Obama’s introduction of his own plan.

The likelihood he can sell his health care plan with his own popularity is slim. In fact, his approval rating among independents hasn’t been above 50 percent since August when health care became so controversial.

Obama has told Democrats that they should vote on health care and let the voters decide the issue in November. Unfortunately, he’s of no help to Democrats.
