Skip to comments.NBC/WSJ poll: Obama Approval Sinks to New Low (Personal approval under water at 41%)
Posted on 10/30/2013 3:47:21 PM PDT by kristinn
President Barack Obamas approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nations direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the presidents job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office -- tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obamas lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer -- allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syrias chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care laws federal website and its overall implementation.

Those events have combined to erase some of the advantage the president gained with polls showing most Americans blame congressional Republicans for the shutdown.
And for the first time in the survey, even Obamas personal ratings are upside-down, with 41 percent viewing him a favorable light and 45 percent viewing him negatively.

Very wise young men. Thanks for the info.
That 41% approval would be coming for the parasites that never worked a day in their lives and under the expanded eligibility now get free medicaid insurance.
Now you get free health care benefits for being a crack whore, corner drug dealer, life time “professional Student” , illegal invader and any other dredge of society.
41% are the perpetual free stuff takers who have no intention of ever looking for a job.
“You keep citing that election but I notice you never mention fraud.”
Oh, I am very familiar with the fraud. The left has always used fraud, but that does not explain the idiotic support that Obama has. Even today, while it is down, Obumbo has way too much approval, in spite of his America destroying actions. Why is that?
It’s ok. After hitlery is elected all will be well.
/s (/s only for the all is well comment)
The country is infested with some 30-35% of idiots that will believe and worship this jackass no matter what he says or does. Until it gets below 35%, he will sail on like the king that he has declared himself that he is.
Talked to a Mexican-American guy about Obama today. He brought up the subject. He said “is there any way we can fire this guy?” He’s completely disgusted. “Where are the jobs? The good jobs?”
Down to 41%?? Lol he just keeps getting stronger,we’ll know he’s in full control when he hits the goose egg
Few things are more irrelevant than Obama’s “approval rating”. So long as he has the support of the “powers that be” he will continue to do as he pleases. The American people can’t figure out what is happening.
Isn’t Haley as bad as Graham? She like DeMint was an early Mitt backer.
Imagine what President Enema’s approval rating would be if he didn’t have the media constantly running interference for him.
So what percentage of Obama’s win in ‘12 do you attribute to fraud?
As to polls, every breakdown I’ve seen shows Dems over-sampled. Every single one.
My initial thought as well. How on earth could 41% still love the POS?"
I'm amazed it's over 4%. George Bush was in the 30s after Katrina -- he didn't cause the hurricane, and it affected about a million people -- Obamacare affects more than 300 million people.
Why hasn't Obama been tarred and feathered and run out of the country on a rail yet?
There is only one thing he could do that would cause me to give him a positive assessment. Resignation is only a start but not enough.
Punishment is required for what he is doing to this country.
He should be at negative 8.
he should get a(nother) nobel prize in mathematics
-6 is a good position for him.
And it only took FIVE FREAKIN’ YEARS! *Rolleyes*
The Conservative Backlash is going to be swift and unstoppable come 2014 and 2016. Then the GOP will feck it up as they always do.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat. (As the rest of us take it in the shorts!)
“The press must be spotting him 30 points...”
Demonrats will love him no matter what. If you read demonrat comments, they have an answer and rationilization for everything, including that which they would be hopping mad and screeching at the top of their voices if the action in question was done by a president with an R after his name. He will always have greater than 80% approval even if he killed and ate a baby on live television
