    Worth noting, however, is that the poll is of registered rather than likely voters, which will lean slightly D, and that "hoping the opposition really screws up" is not a terribly good strategy. Gonna be funny to watch Democrats begin to swing against ole O-Care.

    Obamascare and Benghazigedden are Fox News manufactured crisises, simply red meat thrown to the faithful.

    Going off of any polls right now as Gospel, is premature. Even if people don't like Obamacare, that doesn't necessarily mean they like Republicans better.

    The country is not a majority of social conservatives and until the Republicans learn to put social conservative issues on the backburner, I do believe they will continue to lose elections.

    I'm sorry but the roll-out of Obamacare has been abysmal and even rank and file Dems are starting to cry foul over it. I wouldn't call a horrible roll-out "manufactured", I would call that reality.

    Republicans have a die hard fan club of faithful followers, regardless how bad they are at any given time, kind of like the Dallas Cowboys. The Dems on the other hand rely on people like me who abandoned the GOP because we recognize that they went crazy. Thankfully, I am not in the minority...Cowboy fans are.

    The difference being is that liberals believe keeping more of what you earn is welfare and Republicans think that dependence on the govt. is welfare. You see, Republicans don't have nay problem with you keeping more of what you ear and most don't care if that means you have more than someone else. You on the other hand seem to believe that welfare directed at Republicans is a tax cut which makes you exactly the kind of person Democrats of today love. After all we all know that the govt. needs the money more than the individual taxpayer, right?

    Looks to me like you are in the minority

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    Think defending the indefensible makes you in the majority?

    Of course the roll-out was a joke. But, it's not the crisis you think it is. Most of us don't even care about Obamascare. And, I imagine that once poor people in Red States who previously lacked access to healthcare finally get to see a doctor and receive the drugs they need, they'll like it.

    It's defintely not a joke, especially for those that will be relying on this.

    4.5 million who had their insurance cancelled because of Obamacare disagree with you. Your loyalty to Obama is in the minority. Wonder what it is going to take to get people like you to hold Obama to the same standards you hold Republicans?

    Obama is not running for reelection. And, I assure you, all of us who voted for him, whether we approve of his job or not, will definitely not be voting GOP...unless you nominate Christie, which you won't.

    The GOP is its own worst enemy. My gawd, Terry McAulife won an election. Sheesh.
