Do book sales reflect the general mood of the American electorate? If so, the current New York Times bestseller list does not carry good news for President Obama.
Three books critical of the president topped the list, while only one book praising Obama made the non-extended list, coming in at #15.
At number 2 is Dinesh D’Souza’s Obama’s America, which argues that “Obama’s goal to downsize America is in plain sight but ignored by everyone.”
The book is the namesake of D’Souza’s wildly popular movie “2016: Obama’s America,” which will expand from 1,000 to 1725 screens across the country this weekend. The movie reportedly earned $6.3 million in just 1091 screens last weekend, bringing its total earnings to over $9.2 million.
Taking the number 3 spot on the Times’ bestseller list is Ed Klein’s The Amateur, which has graced the bestseller list for weeks. The book advertises that it pulls back the curtain on “one of the most secretive White Houses in history.”
And coming in at number 8 this week is Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed. The book, by radio host and Jewish Press columnist Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott, details specific policy prescriptions Obama will attempt to enact if he is reelected in November. It has been featured on the New York Times bestseller list since its release earlier this month.
