I was watching this clip of Piers Morgan's interview with Matt Damon which airs tonight on CNN and wondered if there were any Obama supporters here who no longer support him?

If you were a George W. Bush fan before his election, did you support him to the end of his presidency?

I was not a fan of GW loved Obama but now that he seems to be trying to hide in the shadows, not a big fan of him either. HTH

I still like Obama and think he is doing as well as anybody could with all the problems this country is facing.

I'm still a supporter, but in general am not happy with how progressives handled things when given the chance.

I'm sure it's really hard for many Democrats to swallow a turd sandwich, but somehow they do manage to get it down.

IMO, Obama just gained a lot of supporters from Wisconsin, Ohio, Fla. Mich.

Yes. I was an Obama supporter but now realize there is no hope for change. It seems to me that many people are splitting from the two party system while still staying loyal for now. The Tea Partiers vs Republicans, and the Progressives vs Democrats. I'm sure there are others too who don't receive as much media coverage. I think we are on the verge of breaking our two-party system so that everyone's voice can be heard and represented.

I think (hope?) you're right. Whether I love them or hate them, I think the Tea Partiers were brave to break off like that. I certainly didn't expect any of them to get elected, but they did. I think that will encourage liberals who no longer completely identify with Democrats to move forward.

I have to admit that it kind of leaves me wondering what will happen in our country. It's no secret that when a Dem is in office, the Reps feel like they're not being represented, and vice versa. How can one president truly represent what the people want if we all want such different things? How do we really make our system work? KWIM?

It seems the right is at war with average working Americans.
