The talking heads on the right and their Republican followers are citing all sorts of polls trying to show that the American people are losing faith in President Obama, including this week’s Washington Post/ABC news survey.

But Matthew Iglesias has a different take on the claims that Obama is alienating voters by trying to do too much, citing the chart below.

    They will do everything they can to make people think that President Obama is not following the will of the people. Their primary goal is to stop Health Care Reform so they can keep the status quo. If they can somehow make President Obama seem as bad as Bush then they think they will take back all of the seats in the Senate and the House and then in 4 yrs the Presidency. Personally, I have had more than enough of the status quo and I would think that after 8 yrs of the Bush administration the poor and middle class would stand up and make sure it never happened again. My faith in our President has not waivered, although I am just one voice, I am proud to be a Democrat.

    escalating the war in Afghanistan is certainly not change we can believe in. the free lunch is over. It is time to start criticizing President Obama the way most of us criticized George W. Bush
