Well, it seems the aura of hope and change has finally dissipated from the political landscape. Yesterday, CNN's new poll gauging the Presidency of President Obama shows that he's quite underwater on issues that impact the lives of Americans.
The man who ran as a transformational figure in politics back in 2008 is unable to break 50% on any issue. "Environmental policy" was the only issue where more people approved than disapproved of Obama's performance.
The news network asked, "Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling":
Terrorism: 49% approve, 49% disapprove
Environmental policy: 49% approve, 45% disapprove
The situation in Afghanistan: 42% approve, 56% disapprove
Foreign affairs: 40% approve, 57% disapprove
Helping the middle class: 40%, approve, 58% disapprove
The economy: 38% approve, 61% disapprove
The situation in Ukraine: 38% approve, 53% disapprove
The situation in Veterans' Affairs hospitals and medical facilities: 37% approve, 58% disapprove
Health care policy: 36% approve, 63% disapprove
Illegal immigration: 35% approve, 61% disapprove
Gun policy: 33% approve, 64% disapprove
The federal budget deficit: 31% approve, 67% disapprove
