An incredible outcome of the most recent CNN poll, released today. The headline will likely be that President Obama’s approval rating may have hit its floor, stuck at 49%. Also of some note, the generic Democrat/Republican leaning is still a bit to the right (within the margin of error), so not much news there, either. People don’t like Congress, but despise Republicans a little bit less than Democrats. Small consolation, and in any case, yadda yadda.
But check this out:
“Do you think Barack Obama deserves to be reelected, or not?”
Think this’ll lead on CNN this evening? I guess we’ll see.

UPDATE: As I’d have imagined, the online story over at CNN.com in paragraph 11 out of a 13 paragraph story, makes a passing reference to this shocking number. Dare I torture myself by watching The Situation Room to see if it makes it on the air?
UP-UPDATE: Never let it be said that I’m not fair: Wolf mentioned this result as the second one from the poll in his reading of the story just now at the top of the hour. David Gergen even went into deapth with it. Credit where it’s due, and I’m grateful I don’t have to watch the whole show now!
