Politico: Liberals' summer of discontent

Now is the summer of liberal discontent, Politico reports:

Several recent polls show unmistakable signs of Obama's slippage with this core group. A Washington Post survey released last week found that the percentage of self-described liberals who "strongly" support the president's performance on jobs has fallen 22 points over the last, from 53 percent to 31 percent now.

The percentage of African-American Democrats, the core of Obama's electoral core, who think he's doing a good job on the economy has plummeted from 77 percent last year to a little over 50 percent now.

A CNN poll released last Friday showed Obama's overall approval rating dropping from 48 to 45 percent in the last month, sapped, in part, by dampened liberal enthusiasm.

"[You] see signs of a stirring discontent on the left," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland when the survey was released.
