    PostABC News poll shows Democrats at risk in November as Obama’s approval rating fall

    Democrats face serious obstacles as they look to the November elections, with President Obama’s approval rating at a new low and a majority of voters saying they prefer a Congress in Republican hands to check the president’s agenda, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    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.

    Say it ain't so?!?! But, but... he's Obama? That can't be true.

    Seriously though. I can't believe his numbers are that high.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    It's true, but then again, Obama looked like a sure loser last presidential election.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And you are assuming that Obama's diapproval numbers will automotacially mean that the GOP is looked well upon. Here's a hint, they aren't either.

    And per your article here's this:

    Americans trust Democrats over Republicans by 40 to 34 percent to handle the country’s main problems.
    Frankly both parties suck and I won't be voting for either of them.

    I'm not assuming anything. You'll have to ask WaPo & ABC what they're assuming. I copied in their words.

    Yes you are, because you forgot to read this part in the article:

    I didn't forget to read the article. I posted only the first 2 paragraphs of the article.

    Don't get testy because of the poll results.

    This is what will kill dems.

    "Pessimism about the economy also persists, with more than seven in 10 describing the economy in negative terms. Public attitudes about the future of the economy are anything but rosy. Just 28 percent say they think the economy is getting better, while 36 percent say it is getting worse and 35 percent say it’s staying the same.
