Newt's Prediction For The November Election
Sean was joined by Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich for the entire final hour of Wednesday's show. Newt gave his perspective on the presidential race thus far and offered several suggestions for the Romney campaign. Newt praised Romney's strong leadership skills and ability to connect with Americans. The former speaker was especially fond of Romney's message trumpeting the need for lower gas prices, lower taxes, and better job opportunities. Gingrich, like Sean, feels the scandals involving the White House are beginning to drag on Obama's poll numbers. Additionally, Obama telling the nation that the private sector is doing fine, and that he has created so many more jobs than were available before - continues to demonstrate just how out of touch he really is with the plight of the American people. Gingrich predicted that Mitt Romney will receive 57% of the vote, and explained that he doesn't think the Obama administration truly understands just how dire the situation for the November election truly is.
Sean Debates Charlie Rangel On The Obama Economy
With the White House in damage control mode, Sean and the 'Hannity' staff continue to monitor the many scandals that are now plaguing the administration. The relentless stream of bad news facing team Obama in recent days has led to new reports that indicate that the president's message is not only falling flat with independents, his base is beginning to express doubts about his re-election chances as well. To discuss these scandals and much more, New York Congressman Charles Rangel joined Sean in studio. Rangel stood by President Obama and his failing economy. "I would like to believe that we are still the number one objective for people looking for a better way of life. This is the best country in the world. We got the best economy in the world. And it is bad. It is not what we're used to. We shouldn't be there. And the solution to all of this is just like in the family or a company. If you are spending too much, you cut back on spending and you raise your revenues," said Rangel suggesting we should raise taxes. Rangel went so far as to suggest Obama inherited the sagging economy we're in now. "If you see what Obama inherited and what he's been able to do in saving the economy." Outrageous!

Global Survey Shows Drop In Support For Obama
At the start of today's show Sean discussed a recent poll that shows that support for Obama is not only dropping here in the U.S. but overseas as well. The survey, conducted by The Global Attitudes Project, showed that among the 21 countries measured, the largest drop in approval - from 57% to 27% - was seen in China. The figures come months before the president seeks re-election, with polls showing a close race with Mitt Romney. Foreign policy does not traditionally play a key role in US presidential elections, but Mr Obama's campaign has trumpeted his foreign policy record - including killing Osama Bin Laden - amid ongoing criticism of his record at home. Sean also discussed the latest Rasmussen survey that showed Mitt Romney leading the president for the first time in Wisconsin. The president's support in Wisconsin has fallen to its lowest level to date. To look at the Global Attitudes Project please click here. For the Rasmussen Report on Wisconsin please click here.
