(User Submitted) – Writing in the New Republic, William Galston unveils the results of a most recent Democracy Corps poll taken on the public's perception of President Obama.

By a similar margin, those polled don't believe he has realistic solutions to the country's problems.

This spells bad news for Democrats in the November elections, from which, Galston believes, they "can't recover" before the midterms. Read the full article.
