CBS Poll: Obama’s Approval Hits Lowest Point

From CBS News:

Poll: Obamacare support, Obama approval sink to new lows

By Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Anthony Salvanto and Fred Backus | November 20, 2013

President Obama’s job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency, according to a new CBS News poll released Wednesday, and Americans’ approval of the Affordable Care Act has dropped it’s lowest since CBS News started polling on the law.

Fortunately for Obama, he may be too big to jail. But there’s no reason to not repeal Obama-Care. (Reagan’s Catastrophic Medicare Plan was repealed for far less.)

Thirty-seven percent now approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, down from 46 percent in October — a nine point drop in just a month. Mr. Obama’s disapproval rating is 57 percent — the highest level for this president in CBS News Polls…

And yet we haven’t seen this being trumpeted on the network or cable news shows, like it was for Bush.

Approval of [Obama-Care] has dropped to 31 percent – the lowest number yet recorded in CBS News Polls, and a drop of 12 points since last month. Sixty-one percent disapprove (a high for this poll), including 46 percent who say they disapprove strongly.

Republicans are nearly unanimous in their disapproval of the law, and now more than two-thirds of independents agree. Almost six in ten Democrats continue to support the law, but their support has dropped 16 points from last month – from 74 percent in October to 58 percent today. Support has dropped 11 points among independents and five points among Republicans

Just seven percent of Americans think the Affordable Care Act is working well and should be kept in place as it is… 43 percent think the law needs to be repealed entirely.

But Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are lunatics, dangerous radicals.

The president’s overall job approval rating has declined among many demographic groups since last month, including independents (a 12-point drop), men (down 9 points), and women (a 10-point drop). More women now disapprove than approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president…

Oh dear.

President Obama has also taken a hit on views of his honesty. During the presidential campaign last fall, 60 percent of voters said Mr. Obama was honest and trustworthy, but just 49 percent of Americans think that today.

Most Democrats (84 percent) say the president is honest and trustworthy, but most Republicans don’t think he is (77 percent). Independents are more divided in their assessments: 43 percent think President Obama is honest and trustworthy, but 53 percent don’t think he is…

Heck, if things get much worse for Obama, black people are going to start reminding everybody that he’s really half white.

    Apparently there were enough fools to vote for him AGAIN. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice? Not me. I voted for the American; both times. Course I had to get drunk first the first time. The second one was like deja vu all over again but with better hair.
