Here is another reason why Obama was so pissy today when questioned about his endorsement of the Ground Zero Mosque. By ALMOST a 2:1 margin, more people disapprove of Obama’s endorsement than support it. According to Gallup’s polling, 37% disapprove of Obama’s endorsement, while only 20% approve. This also breaks down to 32% who strongly disapprove while 16% strongly approve, giving this a 2:1 margin.
When you break this down by party or non-party affiliation, you get pretty much what you’d expect. Only 14% of Democrats disapprove, while 35% approve of the mosque endorsement. Independents disapprove 32% to 21% and Republicans disapprove 68% to 5%.
