Grading the President
The economists' assessment stands in stark contrast with Mr. Obama's popularity with the public, with a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC poll giving him a 60% approval rating. A majority of the 49 economists polled said they were dissatisfied with the administration's economic policies.
On average, they gave the president a grade of 59 out of 100, and although there was a broad range of marks, 42% of respondents rated Mr. Obama below 60.
Here is what the public said at MSNBC, Chris Matthews', Rachel Maddow's, and Keith Olbermann's low rated network:
With 192,000 plus voters, 54% give President Obama an F (although there has been a huge spike in 'A's in the past 12 hours. A left led rescue plan?)
Heard this on MSNBC? Other alphabet networks? Hmm?
UPDATE: The lefty empire has struck back and the poll at MSNBC now with 476,000 plus votes 51% give the President an A and only 30% the F. No change from the expert economists.
