The Hill's Jordan Fabian reported early this morning:
President Obama on Thursday suggested his lagging poll numbers are due to high gas prices around the nation.
to supporters at his sixth fundraising event in California, Obama
conceded that gas prices are having an effect on how people view his
administration, but indicated he is prepared to weather the storm.
"My poll numbers go up and down depending on the latest crisis and right now gas prices are weighing heavily on people," he told a gathering of backers at a Los Angeles restaurant, according to a pool report.
