    Obama approval rating hits an all time low.

    This comes as no surprize... When the president is found to have been lying to the American people for 3 years, and that lie hits them right in their wallets, that's going to piss off even the Obama faithful.

    It's on the downslope, but lord knows if because it has not hit the level of Bush that we have much to worry about. He still has 3 years to make it higher, or dramatically lower. It will be disconcerting to have 16 years of two Presidents that ended their reign with less than 40%

    It has become a new trend that is likely to continue for decades perhaps. No matter who becomes president in 2016 he or she will begin with 50% of the population hating them. Along the way he or she will have to deal with unforseen difficult problems that will cost him or she some of the 50 % who brought them in.

    The trust of a president has sunk down near the level of a used car salesman. He seems like a nice guy but you know in the end he is going to take you for a loss.

    That report was based on their own NBC/Wall Street Journal polls.

    Obamacare hasn't even shown its ass yet.

    According to Gallup his all time low was 38% on Oct 15-17 2011 and is currently at 41%, different poll. But it still shows the president is riding low in the polls. The best way is to look at the RCP averages.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Re: Obama approval rating hits an all time low.

    I would bet a dollar to a donut that the kind of person that would trumpet Obama's approval rating dropping with glee, at this time of his term, would be the same kind of person that would make excuses and defend Bush's even lower (3 points,) approval rating at the same time of his term.

    Any takers?
