Author Tells Why Obama’s Continued Popularity has Plunged Faster than Bush’s

President Obama’s popularity rating in December polls has plummeted faster than former President Bush’s at the same juncture of their presidency. In his new book How Obama Governed: The Year of Crisis and Challenge, author and political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson predicted that Obama’s popularity ratings would drop fast. “The war, the economy, and health care reform were important in Obama’s popularity plunge, Hutchinson argues, “they aren’t the only reason for the drop.”

Obama is a victim of his own rhetoric of hope and change, says Hutchinson in How Obama Won. Obama revved up people’s expectations of immediate change on everything from the economy to the wars. The performance could never match the rhetoric, says Hutchinson

“The problem is that Obama tapped into the public’s deep seated frustration and disgust with politics and politicians,” says Hutchinson, “Once the tap was made the public expected Obama to be different and act different than other politicians. The reality is that he’s no different and that’s a prescription for personal and political failure.”

Hutchinson further predicts that Obama’s popularity numbers will continue to plunge in 2010 and that the Democrats will be mortally hurt in the year’s mid term elections.

In How Obama Won, Hutchinson gives a no holds barred assessment of the make and break issues that confront Obama in 2010. These are the issues that will determine whether Obama can really deliver on his lofty promise of hope and change.

Author Says Terror War Poses Major Challenge to Obama’s Leadership


The failed airline terror attack poses a new and grave challenge to President Obama. The challenge is not just the threat of terror attacks on U.S. persons and property. The challenge is also to his leadership. In his new book How Obama Governed: The Year of Crisis and Challenge, author and political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson assesses the impact and consequences of the terrorism fight on the Obama administration.

Hutchinson notes that voters gave Obama consistently low ratings on his ability to wage the war against terrorism. The overwhelming majority of Americans said that Obama was too young, inexperienced, and too politically liberal to wage a tough, and relentless fight against terrorists abroad. The challenge to Obama, notes Hutchinson, is and will continue to be how to overcome voter negative view of his perceived weakness in the antiterror battle.

Hutchinson predicted that there would be major tests for Obama such as the failed airline attack that would make it imperative for him to take firm action to combat the threats. The American public will keep a close watch on Obama to see if he can act swiftly and resolutely when to thwart violence.

“How Obama reacts to the terror threats and even possible attacks,” says Hutchinson,” Will be a major deal maker or breaker for the voters in how they view Obama’s leadership.”

In How Obama Won, Hutchinson gives a no holds barred assessment of the make and break issues that confront Obama in 2010. These are the issues that will determine whether Obama can really deliver on his lofty promise of hope and change.
