New IBD/TIPP Poll: Obama And Obamacare Support Hit Record LowsTopics: Political News and commentaries
According to a new IBD/TIPP poll, Barack Obama's 'signature legislative achievement' isn't much viewed as any kind of an achievement, at all. And as for what Americans think about his leadership, well ... surely he'd rather we not go there.
One in five Democrats now opposes ObamaCare, a record high, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. And more than one in six Democrats now say they want it repealed, another new high.More here ... It ppears that ObamaCare's troubles are unlikely to leave the stage anytime soon.
Overall, 55% of the public oppose the law, the highest since IBD/TIPP started asking this question in 2010. Just 37% support ObamaCare, matching a record low.
And while support for outright repeal of the law inched down in January, that was because it fell among Republicans and independents. Among Democrats, support for repeal jumped 4 points.
ObamaCare is also clearly driving down President Obama's approval rating, which dropped to just 38% in January from 43% in November. Among Democrats, Obama's approval has dropped 10 points since November.
Obama also has fallen to all-time lows in the IBD/TIPP Presidential Leadership Index. At 42.6, his support is lower than President George W. Bush's in the wake of his administration's poor handling of Hurricane Katrina.
