-- going on -- support for the administration is dwindling and it could have a serious effect on the mid term elections in fact.
A new Fox News poll says that 44% of Americans feel that President Obama will negatively impact Democrats come November.
So we'll motor sparking a jetBlue election and choose to pull the emergency lever or will they stand by Obama and ride out the rest of the flight -- like that writing.
We're joined now by Matt -- -- former speechwriter to Vice President Biden and Sabrina Schaeffer senior fellow from the independent women's forum good morning to both of you.
The -- -- mats are they gonna pull the lever on Obama and just take a -- and on that flight.
It's not going to be a great year for Democrats no one's expecting it to be the question is can the Democrats minimize the losses.
And the good news for the Democrats is that the Republicans have nominated some really.
Fringe candidates for some senate races but also the American people -- to keep in mind the Republicans recently had power.
We ended up in two wars and the Great Recession.
I haven't heard any new ideas that would make me confident.
Of -- what happened if they're Republicans didn't take over the house and the senate.
So I think that the American people need to think very carefully about this before electing many Republican.
Three it's all about the independence I mean we -- I think they went with President Obama and now by the boards -- -- no way.
Yes 73% according dress -- are very angry with the current policies but I think that White House is trying to frame this whole debate.
That the American public is somehow like Steve Slater -- their unhinged -- about sex yet jumped -- that's why he's doing this 8000 my health.
Track around the country to remind people not see you you know it did to leave -- to stay hopeful and not -- Be dragged down by fear but I don't think the American people -- like Steve Slater they're very -- and they're very sensible and they're going to go to the polls in droves in November.
And they're going to -- from power a political party that has completely rejected the will of the American public.
One of the things it may be on the voters' minds now because the president made sure that it was on their minds and we can argue about whether or not that's a good idea or not is this whole mosque issue.
-- -- come up Friday he says that it should be built and then Saturday he sort of -- tracks and now you have the number one senator Harry Reid.
Coming out against the president Matt how do you see this -- -- because everyone in your party and Republicans too are not I have to give their stance on the mosque.
Well I think the course argue their stance on the mosque before hand you know let alone no way now they are now on record now that the president has waited and -- now.
Everyone -- -- we'll -- if you tell me that before President Obama and Harry Reid spoke.
Everyone hadn't given their opinion I suppose -- that's true now that they have given their opinion yes people will be asked about it my hope.
Is that we think rationally about this we don't want to discriminate against any religion in this country.
That is -- -- what President Obama said was.
That they have a right to build a mosque that he doesn't necessarily think it's a great idea to build a mosque there but they certainly the right to do it can't.
My -- it was that it goes forward.
Actually I -- And I hate that yeah I think that's right that look at the American people don't need to be lectured to by the president.
About freedom of religion are private property these are fundamental -- -- most of the American public hold very dear and I think that's why this is -- -- -- -- Education Sabrina for the what I -- -- into this what are the political ramifications why you don't mind as now I think it's serious because that once again it says the disconnect between the president and the American public -- This comes on the heels of so many instances like that the embrace it Hugo -- the Henry Louis Gates you know debacle last summer.
The the first ladies and a Spanish siesta this summer.
That people in -- people are saying I.
Think that this president represents me he represents more the sort of Leonard Bernstein black panther radical -- you know Alvin and the Democratic Party that a lot of dynamic and very turned off his.
-- is well that look I mean it's hard to even respond to that a lot of that is just a bunch of baloney.
In real world the American in the real world the American people actually divided on the mosque issue.
-- -- overwhelming yes they are and let's not pretend that the American people are suddenly against freedom of religion and you know it starts with the mosque but if we keep growing.
Right again that we finally got paid well -- -- I religion must 64% of Americans against an -- in that location according to the latest level and it.
That it might have been right there yeah.
The American people -- -- -- the kitchen tables this morning debating this issue thanks so much of the Internet you think your name.
