Your suggestions today that president Obama's second term honeymoon.
Already be over.
A new poll shows half the country disapproves of the job the president is doing.
Even as he continued his so called charm offensive reaching out -- Republicans last week it has apparently not stopped.
His slide in the -- Which many believe was what led to the charm offensive to begin with there.
And in fact his poll numbers are getting more negative.
Here are some of the headlines in the last week -- -- Obama's approval drops as Americans take a dimmer view of his economic policies.
Quote after over hyping sequester Obama poll numbers dip.
In recent days we read quote Obama's approval rating has cratered.
In the past two months.
And today quote Obama honeymoon.
May be over from the health.
Chris I want to have -- digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live so.
The honeymoon is apparently over it has the mainstream media declares itself must be so -- I guess.
But here's the deal Chris -- they were going down and in a Fox News pulls the Gallup polls well all polls were showing the president his approval numbers going down.
And then came the charm offensive -- he went and met with the Republicans and met with Paul Ryan and the dinner in there with the -- and number while it was all okay.
Look I'm trying and now we get the latest poll out it shows that he's still.
47% approval rating.
47% disapprove -- down.
Consistently from where it had been just a few weeks ago.
Well maybe the Israeli embassies on the something there and he could get like.
Sophia and land should get the girls together.
I'm like dude do you like a charm if I don't -- -- -- down circa 1989.
Now the the situation for the present this is the irony.
For second term presidents and the president -- it it has made it more difficult for himself by laying out such a bold agenda when you get started.
Seek out and you -- -- a bold agenda you say you're gonna blow up the Republicans the Republican you try to blow up the sequestration it doesn't work.
-- you say.
Oh I'm losing altitude in my approval polls and I'm not gonna have as much weight to throw around I'll turn into a lame duck.
So then you go on the charm offensive hey I'm willing to eat with you people hey I'm willing to talk to you in and sit in the same room Visio.
I think you do that for awhile and then pretty -- guess what happens.
Your base says this guy was lying to was he was leading -- on he's not serious about a gun -- he's not serious about global warming he's not serious about these things.
He's already canoe dealing with Mitch McConnell so why should we listen and -- -- get into a difficult cycle where as you're trying to prove that you are sensible moderate in order to get people to listen to you again.
Your base start -- they didn't say with you and so it goes.
I ask you about the moderates because it that it's that it's -- its -- number this from.
Showing that back in September he at 61% approval with the moderates now it's 54%.
So he slid 7%.
With the moderates yet it just a 37% disapproval rating with them before now it's 42% -- is going in the opposite is going in the wrong direction.
When it comes to his support from moderates.
Chris I mean the biggest things that it happened you know as of late have been this whole back and forth over the sequester in these budget cuts and so on and then.
-- to -- catastrophic warnings that we received.
Do you think that those are continuing to have an effect even -- the president the White House have tried to turn the page.
Yeah wolves think about it this way.
You it is harder to -- news that it is to make news it was much easier for the president to use big stages that his inaugural address is state of the union.
To lay -- a big -- liberal vision.
He was able to create quite a panic when he first started talking about sequestration about what was going to happen.
Really things and there's a lot harder and and re setting.
Eight turning the Dow back from aggressive.
Liberal bold agenda these things and pushing hard against Republicans.
To hey I'm willing to eat with you.
Which one of those makes more news and it's it's been tougher for him to try to reel this back into the right point without -- as said before.
Making his base think that now betraying them.
Want to show the viewers of the approval polls of the second term presidents they all go down they -- -- Way down and then some.
Rebounded you know by the end here's Reagan -- a -- -- a couple of them but I do want to ask you this crest some and then some the articles out today.
Suggests that he is already at a lame duck and -- -- article says.
Much of the -- presidents the president's agenda is stock talking about climate change immigration reform.
Grand bargain budget deal not to mention what we saw on gun control I mean this is it already over for him in terms of getting Major League that legislation -- If he cannot produce a budget.
If this Washington cannot produce a budget before the end of September none of that other stuff matters let's just be very clear about that.
His ability to have a vital phase of a second term which is always a number of -- limited number of days for any reelected president.
His ability to not be a lame duck is contingent on getting a deal to have a budget for the next fiscal year -- you can't do that nothing else matters now.
