A survey of 873 Bloomberg subscribers found "77 percent of U.S. respondents believe Obama is too anti-business and four-out-of-five are only somewhat confident or not confident of his ability to handle a financial emergency. The poll also finds a decline in Obama's overall favorability rating one year after taking office. He is viewed favorably by 27 percent of U.S. investors. In an October poll, 32 percent in the U.S. held a positive impression." There's a big difference between somewhat confident and not confident, and I'm not sure what is gained by lumping the two together. And Bloomberg subscribers are a more elite group than your average retail investor. Still, though, these aren't good numbers for Mr. Obama. The irony, too, is that on the left, the complaint is that Mr. Obama hasn't been tough enough on business, writing the health care overhaul to benefit drug companies and health insurers and not really being tough enough on the banks.
