Poll: Obama's Base Demoralized

Thanks to Obama's most recent spectacular sell-out of core Democratic values during that international joke of a debt ceiling drama, Democratic enthusiasm about voting has fallen to "a record low:"

The debt deal really does appear to have demoralized the base, and the weird thing about it is that this is one issue where if Obama had done what folks on the left wanted him to do, he also would have had the support of independents. The deal has proven to be a complete flop in swing states where we've polled it like Colorado, North Carolina, and Ohio. And in every single one of those states a majority of voters overall, as well as a majority of independents, think new taxes are going to be needed to solve the deficit problem.

Confidence in Obama, and in the Economy, Declines
