President Obama Drops in Polls:Will Still Be the Most Popular Kid
President Obama is certainly the “popular” kid in school. You can see it everywhere on the news, both domestically and internationally. He wins awards, is married to the hot chick, goes on all the talk shows, has his logo on everything, and he is the United States version of the class President. And now, with falling poll numbers below 50%, his likability is reflective of being the “popular” kid. But why would he be considered the popular kid if his popularity is below is 50%? If you look back at your school days and you weren’t THE popular kid, you will remember that the popular kid was not popular with the majority of kids. In fact, it was quite the opposite. The popular kid was popular because he had connections to the right groups, like the kids on the paper or year book staff, kids on the athletic team, and certain teachers. He was often arrogant and too good for most people. Similarly, because Obama is so popular with the media and academics, the illusion of his popularity has nothing to do with how most of Americans view him. He is arrogant, narcissistic, and looks down on most people. I wish his only power was to provide a new coke machine in the locker room.
