Oooh! Double-digit Rasmussen Deficit for The One

The Verdict is in from President Obama's health care speech on Wednesday that morphed into an attack on the Cambridge, Mass., police -- and by extension all law enforcement officials. The People are not pleased.

Rasmussen's Daily Presidential Tracking poll shows that there is now a double-digit gap of 11 points between those who really like the president's performance and those who really, really don't.

That's the highest so far. Only 29 percent of those polled strongly approve of The One. He seems to have found a ledge, demographically speaking, to hang on to, but it isn't enough for a coattail effect for other politicians to latch on to. Meanwhile his negatives, those strongly disapproving, have jumped to 40 percent.

Other internals of the polling aren't good for Obama. Some 76 percent polled now view him as "politically liberal," a label he has tried to fudge since running for president. This means that the moderates, or as I like to call them "the squishy middle", are now discovering for themselves the real Barack Hussein Obama and they are having buyer's remorse.

Promising bigger, more intrusive government and higher taxes during a period of rising unemployment and economic uncertainty, while stirring the pot of racism, isn't exactly going to win a lot of friends in America which, strangely enough, continues to be a center-right kind of place.

Americans continue to love liberty, often without even knowing why.
