Memo the community organizer from Chicago:You’re schtick is falling on deaf ears.It’s not really a surprise considering Obama’s approval rating is down to 43%.[1]

Bloomberg[2] reports Americans by a 2-to-1 ratio disagree with President Barack Obama[3]’s contention that Congress should raise the U.S. debt limit without conditions.

Iobama[4]nstead, 61 percent say that it’s “right to require spending cuts when the debt ceiling is raised even if it risks default,” because Congress lacks spending discipline, according to a Bloomberg National Poll conducted Sept. 20-23.

That sentiment is shared by almost three-quarters of Republicans, two-thirds of independents, and a plurality of Democrats. Just 28 percent of respondents backed Obama’s call for a clean bill that has no add-on provisions.

“Sometimes it can be hard to negotiate if Republicans are making irrational demands, but to say ‘I’m not going to talk at all’ — I’ve just never found not negotiating to be an effective way to get something done,” Sam Manders, a 29-year-old lacrosse coach from Gray, Maine[5], and a Democrat, said in a follow-up interview.

Even with a media propping up Obama like no other president in U.S. histpry, his numbers are still plunging.
