More Bad Math for Obama

To paraphrase Obama's Pastor Rev. Wright: Obama's chickens are coming home to roost!

The Washington Post had this headline for the latest Gallup Poll: "Gallup: Obama’s favorability lowest of any nominee since Bob Dole." Here's an excerpt:
The latest Gallup-USA Today poll holds grim news for the White House. While 44 percent of Americans says President Obama’s time in office has been a success, 50 percent say it’s been a failure.

The poll also finds that his favorability rating is 50 percent — presumably that’s the 50 percent that doesn’t think his presidency is a failure. That’s lower than every presidential nominee in the last five contests save for Bob Dole. And Dole lost.
But the lastest bad news from Gallup is just the tip of a very large iceberg of bad news for Obama:
