“Public opinion is with the president”

The Green Room. Gotta love it. The carpet’s frayed, the couch has seen better days. But the coffee is plentiful, the company is entertaining, and the best dishes are served cold.        — The Butcher

from Guy Benson:

The White House is apparently feeling a little defensive about the president’s press conference earlier in the week, during which he tried to make the case that he’s not a lame duck.  Here’s the spin from one top administration official, via ABC News’ Jon Karl:

“A White House official told me that the real source of the president’s juice is the American people.  And on the big issues, this White House believes — big issues like guns, immigration and the budget — public opinion is with the president.”

Fact check, via actual public opinion:

Federal Budget Deficit: 38% Approve, 58% Disapprove
Illegal Immigration: 44% Approve, 50% Disapprove
Gun Policy: 45% Approve, 52% Disapprove
