New CBS Poll: Obama Approval Drops to 37%, ObamaCare Now at 31%Topics: Political News and commentaries
According to a new CBS News poll released Wednesday, President Obama's job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency (and lower than G.W.'s) and Americans' approval of the Affordable Care Act has dropped to it's lowest since CBS News started polling on the law. The sampling is weighted in favor of Democrats - Republicans are the lowest number of respondents ... so the true approval numbers are more likely than not to be actually even worse than CBS reports.
CBS News reports:
[...] 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.Read the whole thing here ...
[...] 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. Far more, 48 percent, think there are some good things in the law, but changes are needed to make it work better, and another 43 percent think the law needs to be repealed entirely.
