President Obama continues to lead in the polls
I am having a hard time comprehending why it is so difficult for some citizens to understand why President Obama is leading in the polls, and has been since last winter. Hardly anyone is willing to give the man any credit, and everyone who does is criticized. True; considering his competition, supporting President Obama seems like a no brainer, but in all honesty I can't think of anything that he has done wrong. Maybe that's just it. President Obama is a little too good to be true. His policy requiring birth control to be offered to adult working women for free is ingenious. It helps to prevent the possibilities of abortion, which everyone seems to agree is a difficult decision for women to make. In addition, his policy to lower student loan repayments, his open-minded stance on gay marriage, and his adamant efforts to increase employment rates proves that he is thinking and considering all Americans. When the competition is so bad, as in President Obama's case, his positive efforts and achievements should brightly out shine the competition, and they do. It is as simple as that. People realize from their personal struggles, which were mainly brought on by the large amount of job losses in 2008-09, bad bank business, and tax breaks for the rich, that it takes time to recover from financial debts as grave as our government was facing when Obama took office. I have felt enough and seen enough progress to lead me to believe that President Obama is capable of continuing the trend over the next four years, and I think this feeling is shared amongst the majority of Americans.
