Delusional liberal elites are still in denial over Obama’s crumbling presidency

In early September I wrote a piece discussing how The Washington Post, widely viewed as a flagship of the liberal establishment, was now acknowledging the scale of the collapse facing the Left in this November’s mid-terms. As The Post put it, “Democrats in Congress are no longer asking themselves whether this is going to be a bad election year for them and their party. They are asking whether it is going to be a disaster.”
Three weeks later, there is no evidence to suggest the political landscape is getting any better for President Obama and his party. If anything, it’s getting even worse according to some polls, as a recent CNN survey showed. According to the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, a striking 56 percent of Americans now believe President Obama has fallen short of their expectations.
