Is the honeymoon over already?

Sunday, January 11, 2009

In 9 days, Barack Obama will be sworn in and for some people that date can't come quickly enough. He will be the 44th president of the United States. He has huge challenges in front of him, starting with the crumbling economy and those two wars President Bush has us in. Hopes are high that he will be able to turn things around. Indications are that he may be able to do just that.

According to a new Gallup poll, 65 percent of Americans are confident in President-elect Obama's ability to be a good president. This is down a little from 70 percent a week ago, but still pretty good.

Since returning from his Hawaii vacation, Obama has encountered a couple of bumps in the road: the situation in Gaza, which he stayed away from by deferring to President Bush, criticism of Leon Panetta as his choice to head the CIA, Bill Richardson having to withdraw his nomination for commerce secretary, and official statistics from the Congressional Budget Office that project a deficit of $1.2 trillion for this year -- all this before he's even moved into the Oval Office.

Keeping in mind everything facing the President-elect and based on how he's conducted himself, has your confidence in Barack Obama declined any since the election or is it about the same?

Has your confidence in Barack Obama declined any since the election or is it about the same?
I am as confident in Barack Obama now as I was before the election.

I am confident in Barack Obama, but I've had my doubts recently.
