Fox Poll: Obama’s Job Approval Hits A New Low

From Fox News:

Fox News poll: Obama’s approval hits new low

By Dana Blanton | March 05, 2014

President Obama’s job approval rating hits a record low this week, as a majority of Americans say his administration has mostly failed at growing the economy, creating jobs, improving health care and the country’s image.

Yeah, but he’s likeable dammit.

For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten — 38 percent — approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).

Approval of Obama among Democrats stands at 71 percent, near its 69 percent record low (September 2013). For independents, 28 percent approve, which is also near the 25 percent all-time low among this group (July 2013). And approval of Obama among Republicans hits a new low of five percent.

Overall, a 59-percent majority thinks the White House has mostly failed at creating jobs, up from 52 percent who said the same in October 2012. Likewise, 56 percent feel it has failed on growing the economy. That’s also up from 52 percent.

The greatest erosion is on improving America’s image around the world — something Obama vowed to do once in office. In 2012, by a four percentage-point margin, voters felt the administration had failed to improve the country’s image. In the new poll that’s now a 26-point margin: 33 percent say mostly succeeded and 59 percent mostly failed…

Inexplicably, up until now, foreign policy has always been far and away Obama’s best event in these polls. So this should drag down his general approval rating in all the polls.

The best of the issues tested for the White House is homeland security: 41 percent think the administration has mostly succeeded at making the country safer.

How exactly?

That’s down from 52 percent who felt that way in 2012. More — 48 percent — think the Obama administration has mostly failed in this respect…

Majorities of independents [sic] say the White House has mostly failed in every area tested, including 68 percent who feel that way on improving America’s image.

Not the precious independents!

As the crisis in Ukraine escalated, the poll finds by a 33-56 percent margin, most voters disapprove of the president’s handling of foreign policy — a new low for Obama on this issue. In December, 39 percent approved and 52 percent disapproved.

On health care, 36 percent of voters approve of the job Obama is doing, while 59 percent disapprove. He receives an almost identical 36-58 percent rating on the economy…

Yeah, but once again, he’s likeable. Really he is.

    According to a Congress Critter, the approval rating

      I beg to differ, I’d rather have the flu.

      What is the flu?

       

       

      (rephrased)

       

      The flu [policy’s]can be deadly for the elderly[values] and those with compromised [non Liberal] immune[intelligence] systems .

       

      Like all vaccines, [votes] the flu [policy’s ]vaccine[vote] only gives a temporary immunity to the virus[ political] strains [party] or closely related virus[political] strains[party] contained in the vaccine[vote]. The only way to get natural and permanent immunity[common sense] to a strain[party] of flu[policy’s] is to recover naturally [common sense] from the flu[ policy’s]. Natural immunity[common sense] to a particular strain[party] of flu[policy’s] can be protective if that strain [party] or closely related strains[party’s] come around again in the future. However, because the vaccine[vote] only provides a 70 to 80 percent chance of temporary immunity to selected strains[party’s] and those strains[party’s] may or may not be prevalent each year, doctors [American Taxpayers] say you have to get a flu shot[election] every year.[term limits]
