56% Now Think Obama Is A Partisan Hack

That would be 3% more than voted for him in 2008. More importantly, the poll is “likely voters”

A new Rasmussen Report survey shows that 56 percent of likely voters believe President Obama is governing like a partisan Democrat, up three points since last month and currently at the highest level since he took office in January 2009. The week after his inauguration, only 39 percent felt this way.

Only 28 percent of voters questioned said that Obama is governing on a bipartisan basis, tying the lowest levels measured from last month, with 16 percent not sure.

Oh, come on, what would give people that notion? Just because his first act was to order the closing of Gitmo, he has constantly blamed Bush and Republicans (who controlled the Senate for half of Bush’s 8 years, and the House for 6 of the first 8), he elevates partisan hacks with no experience to federal positions, shut out Republicans on most of the health care legislation, pushes cap and tax, raises taxes on the middle class, spends quite a bit of time still in campaign mode, pushes for federal control of health care and student loans, takes over private corporations, and makes personal attacks against those private citizens and entities that attack his policies, among others, there is no reason to believe he is a partisan Democrat, is there?

Also

Perhaps the most startling finding in the survey is that 70 percent of voters say they are angry with the policies of the federal government, with 48 percent saying they are “very angry.”

Oh, those are probably just those wacky TEA Partiers, who just can’t get with the program that government can solve all ills. Look at what a great job they have done with the War on Poverty!
