    Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.

    Tres bien.
    Yeah ... I was just looking at that poll and considered posting it here.
    Now I don't have to.

    Pretty funny how WAPO used what have been 20 inches to try to mitigate their own poll results.

    They were talking about this poll on Morning Joe. I thought poor Mika was going to have a heart attack.

    in front of a crowd of people i am sure that he is very nice. yet if you look at the way he treats his family he doesn't want to have anything to do with them.
    his own family members have stated he wants nothing to do with them. you also have to look at how he treats people that question him.

    the front he shows in public makes him likable. once you start looking at other things that goes way down hill.
    i think clinton has a more honest personality than obama does.

    Mornin' TB. Here is another article worded differently but giving the same exact stats. Business Insider taken off AP and then given to Yahoo.


    Obama's Approval Rating Is At Its Lowest Point Ever, And It Could Mean Major Disaster For Democrats.....

    After a couple rounds of encouraging polling for the Affordable Care Act, the new Washington Post-ABC poll serves as a setback for supporters. Obamacare is expected to play a major role in the midterm elections, and some numbers suggest the law could be a major hindrance for Democrats:
    By a 44-48 margin, voters say they oppose the health-care law.
    50% of respondents said the implementation of the law is going worse than they expected, compared to 41% who said it's going better than they thought. This comes despite the fact that enrollment exceeded original targets, as more than 8 million people signed up for insurance through exchanges set up by the law.
    47% say the law is making their health-care costs go up. Just 7% say it's making costs go down, and 41% say their health-care costs have stayed about the same.
    By an even wider margin, respondents said they think the ACA is leading to health-care costs increases across the country — 58% said Obamacare is making health-care costs rise, while only 11% said they think costs are decreasing.
    By a 44-24 margin, respondents said the law is helping to make the quality of the nation's health-care system worse.....snip~

    Then you essentially sussed the main qualities he used to become President.
    Tell me, do you recall which of these absolutely sincere smiles he used on you?

    I especially like the one in the middle of the next to bottom row - the one with just the head and neck. It's presidential. Looks like he mighta lost his tank.

    The only delusion I'm seeing here in this thread is a someone continuously keying on one statement that is marginally positive for Democrats and ignoring the massive evidence on the other side that shows Democrats in trouble heading into November.

    That's just it, the only thing I see are Obama's numbers, not the Dems. That's why I put it in there, because people automatically equate Obama's approval numbers to somehow meaning that people are more approving of the GOP. That isn't the case.

    So it's not ME keying in on a small detail, it's those keying in on Obama's numbers and equating that to ALL the Dems.
