68% Disaprove Of How Obama Handles Rising Gas Prices

A good news/bad news poll. The good news

(Reuters) More than two-thirds of Americans disapprove of the way President Barack Obama is handling high gasoline prices, although most do not blame him for them, according to a Reuters/Ipsos online poll released on Tuesday.

Sixty-eight percent disapprove and 24 percent approve of how Obama is responding to price increases that have become one of the biggest issues in the 2012 presidential campaign.

Eighty-nine percent of Republicans said they disapproved, as did 52 percent of Democrats and 73 percent of independents.

That Independents percentage will hurt come election time, if prices stay high.

Bad news

Overall, 36 percent of respondents said “oil companies that want to make too much profit” deserve the most blame for higher energy prices. Twenty-eight percent of Republicans said so, as did 44 percent of Democrats and 32 percent of independents.

Twenty-six percent of all respondents said a range of factors was equally to blame, including oil companies, politicians, foreign countries that dominate oil reserves and environmentalists who want to limit oil exploration.

What this shows is that 36% are idiots, who have bought into the Democrat narrative that oil companies are evil and set the price. On the flip side, only 36% are buying the narrative, and only 32% of Independents.

But, yeah, it is certainly not all Obama’s fault. He does get a part of the blame for his policies, but, the problem is that Obama is handling this poorly, he is not coming out with policies to help alleviate the costs, and, remember, Democrats, including Obama, Blamed Bush for high gas prices, so, they are being hoist on their own petard.
