More Evidence That YOU Don't Understand 12 Dimensional Chess

In the latest Gallup poll, President Obama's job approval rating averaged 40%. But the even more important numbers are these: Support for the president is down 11% among liberals (from 79% at summer's beginning to 68% now) and down 12% among moderates (from 59% to 47%).

After months of triangulation, capitulation, and bipartisanship to appeal to the all-important moderates, their support for him is now below 50%.

Meanwhile, he's losing his liberal base just as quickly.

At some point, the administration is going to have to acknowledge at long last that is not because we don't understand politics, but because we do.
