Dobbs Takes Ratings Hit
According to analysis of Nielsen data by the New York Observer, as criticism of Lou Dobbs has continued to rise over his questioning of President Obama’s citizenship, his ratings at CNN have continued to go down.

In fact, Dobbs’ audience has decreased 15% in total viewers and 27% in the all important age 25 to 54 demographic group since the start of the controversy.

Fewer Than Half of Republicans Think Obama is a Citizen
A forthcoming DailyKos/Research 2000 poll found 77% of Americans believe President Obama was born in the United States, 11% do not, and 12% are not sure.

Among Republicans only, 42% think he’s an American citizen, 28% do not, and 30% are not sure.

Axelrod Heads to the Hill
White House political adviser David Axelrod is set to hold a “private messaging session” with House Democrats today on the Hill before lawmakers leave for the August recess, Greg Sargent reports.

With a House health care bill closer to reality, “the battle will shift to a new phase: Selling it.”

Said a top House staffer: “We have a month where 256 members will be in their districts with a bill to sell. Axelrod is going to talk to them about getting out there and selling it. House Dems are going on the offensive in August.”
