ARE HALF OF AMERICANS BRAIN-DEAD?

I cannot understand why the polls in America are showing a neck to neck Presidential race when statistics of dissatisfied Americans are at a high level.  A Disinformation Campaign by the Liberal Media is constantly putting out lies about President Obama and are not honing in on his dismal record.  The attack of being racist” on white people who don’t like Obama is absolute stupidity.  I will agree that there are people who are racist, but the majority of people who do not like President Obama has nothing to do with racism.  In fact, those who voted for President Obama strictly because of his color,  is racism .  I don’t  care what color a person is.   Read the following article to see proof of  how many people are not happy with the direction America is headed.

Survey: Two-thirds of Americans dissatisfied
Fri Oct 19, 2012 1:4PM GMT

Two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country and 30% are satisfied, identical to the satisfaction level measured in September.

More than twice as many Americans today are dissatisfied with the direction of the country than are satisfied, which by itself indicates an unhealthy atmosphere for a president seeking reelection.

Older and higher-income adults tend to be more dissatisfied than younger and lower-income Americans.

In terms of how Americans’ overall mood may affect Obama’s chances for reelection, the 30% satisfied today is higher than the satisfaction level before the 1980 (19%) and 1992 (22%) elections when incumbents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush both lost.

However, it is lower than in 1984 (48%), 1996 (39%), and 2004 (44%), the respective reelection years for Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush — all two-term presidents. Thus, while satisfaction levels do relate to election outcomes for incumbents, today’s 30% puts Obama in a gray zone where it is unclear whether satisfaction has reached the threshold necessary for voters to give him a second term. Gallup

FACTS & FIGURES

Most Americans blame high unemployment, the federal budget deficit, rising poverty or some other economic issue as the root of their malaise. Others point to evidence of moral decline, health-care woes and a government that they claim is not up to snuff. LA Times

The unemployment rate decreased to 7.8 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 114,000, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Oct. 5.

Recent shifts down have been driven in part by people dropping out of the workforce. The Guardian

According to data from Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan, Americans continue to show historically low numbers of people expecting good economic times ahead. LA Times
