    Public disapproval of President Obama's handling of health care has jumped to 52 percent, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll released hours before he makes his case for overhaul in a prime-time address to Congress.

    With his health revamp moving slowly and unemployment edging ever higher, Obama's overall approval rating has also suffered a blow. The survey showed that 49 percent now disapprove of how he is handling his job as president, up from 42 percent who disapproved in July.

    The grade people give Obama on health care also has worsened since July, when just 43 percent disapproved of his work on the issue.

    I expect approval to jump slightly after last night's speech, but it is likely to contonue dropping over time thereafter. I expect approval to eventually drop to approx 38%.

    My two cents is the the current healthcare initiative will continue to be gutted, until it is nothing more than a healthcare reform bill which makes changes to private healthcare (the one thing both dems and reps agree on).
