Psst! Obama’s Poll Numbers Have Been Underwater for Weeks Now.

Shhh! I think we’re not supposed to tell anyone this, since most of the mainstream media seems to be treating it like top-secret classified information, kept far away from the eyes of the public . . .

. . . but Obama’s job-approval numbers have been underwater in the Gallup tracking poll in every survey but one since mid-June.

Whatever you do, don’t tell anyone this! There is a fragile conventional wisdom that must be protected at all costs!

UPDATE: Here is the mundane way Gallup releases its latest numbers on this: “President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 46% in June, down from 50% in May but similar to his ratings from February through April.”
