Gallup’s recent polling shows President Obama’s job approval is moving downward toward a more normal rating.

A week ago, the new President polled at 83 percent for the way he handled the transition. The new job approval rating, after 3 days in office, polled at 68 percent with 1,591 polled, with a margin of error plus or minus three percentage point.

Other President’s initial job approval ratings, according to Gallup, are:

President John F. Kennedy, 72 percent; Dwight Eisenhower, 68 percent; Jimmy Carter, 66 percent; Richard Nixon, 59 percent; Bill Clinton, 58 percent; George W. Bush, 57 percent; and Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, 51 percent.

If we are to believe polling, America has a dilemma on its hands. A majority of us seem to like this President, but as of January 16th, almost no one believed the country is going in the right direction. While the polling was done a few days before Obama actually took office, we well-knew his agenda.

The Real Clear Politics average, which includes ABC News/Washington Post, Newsweek, CBS News/NY Times, FOX News, AP, NBC News/Wall St. Journal, Harris and Pew, shows that almost 71 percent of us believe we are on the wrong track. The most positive polling of all the negative polls is the AP showing that 54 percent of those polled DO believe America is on the wrong track.

We know a lot about what bumps we will encounter as we move on down the long road with this new administration. We know that we will meet with, and negotiate with, terrorist states. We know the CIA once again has their hands tied as they attempt to interrogate those who would harm us. We know that Obama will likely get his stimulus package through, which will do little to stimulate. We know that the real wage earners and job providers will have their taxes raised. We know that the number of abortions will grow and some very Liberal teachers will provide sex education to our children, whether we want it or not. And we know that racism will thrive as a new industry to separate and divide America.

There are other things we fear we know from Obama’s comments along the campaign trail, and from his past performance. We know he is the author of a huge $825 billion U.N. Global Poverty tax (Senate Bill 2433), we know Obama is a special friend of the U.N. We know we may have an armed national civilian security force in our midst – a force “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded… [as our military],” We know we may have terrorists imprisoned on our soil.

How do we reconcile President Obama’s 68 percent job approval after three days on the job with the 71 percent of us polled by a mostly Liberal media, who believe all is not well?

The only answer can be Obama Derangement Syndrome.
