Poll: Obama and ObamaCare Hitting New Lows

Phil Jensen


graphFrom Fox News:

Public opposition to the health care overhaul and disappointment in President Obama’s job performance are hitting all-time highs, with new polls showing the botched rollout of the law has seriously damaged confidence in the administration.

A Washington Post-ABC poll released Tuesday showed Obama’s job approval rating at a meager 42 percent — and his disapproval rating at 55 percent, the worst of his five years in office.

That figure matches the disapproval rating he received in a recent Fox News poll.

The latest surveys show how much the launch of the health law has damaged the president’s image and the public’s faith in his administration.

The Post-ABC poll showed opposition to ObamaCare has hit an all-time high, with 57 percent opposing the law. The public was roughly evenly divided a month ago.

And 63 percent disapprove of the president’s handling of the law’s rollout. In the recent Fox News poll, that figure was 61 percent.

The plummeting figures are traced in part to self-identified independents losing patience with the president.

Yep, that cold bucket called “reality” sure puts a damper on the image of the glorious socialist revolution.

We can only hope more people will remain tuned in to reality from this point forward.

    I still find it horrifying that his approval can be higher than the teens. We are sunk if that many people who make decisions and vote are so blind.
