CNN Poll: 80% say economy is bad, only 33% blame Obama for it.
More than 80% of Americans surveyed say the economy is in poor shape, with unemployment still the public's top concern, according to the latest CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey.

...

Despite the amount of time Obama has been in office, 55% of Americans say that former president George W. Bush and the Republicans are more responsible for current economic problems than Obama.

Meanwhile, only one in three say that Obama and the Democrats are more to blame. Americans answered almost exactly the same way when asked the same question in Sept. 2010.

1. That's because Bush completely tanked the economy before Obama even set foot in the Oval Office
I still remember late 2008 when the Dow Jones was down hundreds of points a day and the economy was completely collapsing. George Bush left us with the greatest economic collapse since the Great Depression.

Most people know who caused it and it wasn't Obama. The 33% now that blame him for the shitty economy are hardcore Republicans and aren't interested in facts anyways.

2. The month Obama was inaugurated (at the end of Jan. 2009), the US was losing almost 900,000 jobs...
...a month.

Almost a million jobs lost in the month of January 2009 alone!

April 2011 saw the largest increase in jobs since before 2008.

3. This is the narrative that needs changing
there are still going to be about 8% - 15% that would still blame Obama no matter
what he does.

Their blatant racism will not change.

5. That should make us all feel a little better about next year
Also, it probably wouldn't help a prospective Mitch Daniels candidacy much either.
