Two weeks ago, the leftist media (including Shep Smith at Fox) was touting the rising popularity of Obama, as if the information of the day was a trend rather than a cyclical affair. Turns out "cyclical" was the final analysis. We knew it, while the media did not.
Gallup - Jan 1st - Obama 42% down from 45% .
Rasmussen - Jan 5th - Obama 45% down from 49 two weeks ago.
