AP-mtvU Poll: College students' Obamamania wanes

2010-10-13 11:19:00 PDT Washington, , United States — (10-13) 11:19 PDT WASHINGTON (AP) --

The Obamamania that gripped college campuses two years ago is gone.

An Associated Press-mtvU poll found college students cooling in their support for President Barack Obama, a fresh sign of trouble for Democrats struggling to rekindle enthusiasm among many of these newest voters for the crucial midterm elections in three weeks.

Forty-four percent of students approve of the job Obama is doing as president, while 27 percent are unhappy with his stewardship, according to the survey conducted late last month. That's a significant drop from the 60 percent who gave the president high marks in a May 2009 poll. Only 15 percent had a negative opinion back then.

"Obama Is Dangerous" Dr. David Jeremiah Says

Dr. David Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church of El Cajon, California, recently released his latest book, The Coming Economic Armageddon: What Bible Prophecy Warns about the New Global Economy. While he says he has no desire to vilify President Barack Obama, he disagrees with most of what the president has done.

Dr. David Jeremiah"I have a very strong belief that President Obama is as much of a globalist as we've had in the office of the presidency," Dr. Jeremiah shares. "There was a period of time when he was running for office, and after he was elected, where people actually began to talk about him as if he were the president of the world. It seems as if he were running for president of the world."
"I do not believe he has been an asset to our country; I don't believe he's moved us forward in a good direction, and frankly, I am praying, along with many other believers, that in this mid-term election we will find a way to slow down this train that seems to be moving us toward socialism and away from our historical moorings," Dr. Jeremiah explains. "I'm really frightened about that, and I think in that respect, I believe he's a dangerous person."
