Poll: Obamacare support, Obama approval sink to new lows
CBS ^ | 20 Nov 2013 | Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Anthony Salvanto and Fred Backus

Posted on 11/20/2013 5:21:15 AM PST by mandaladon

President Obama's job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency, according to a new CBS News poll released Wednesday, and Americans' approval of the Affordable Care Act has dropped it's lowest since CBS News started polling on the law.

Thirty-seven percent now approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, down from 46 percent in October -- a nine point drop in just a month. Mr. Obama's disapproval rating is 57 percent -- the highest level for this president in CBS News Polls.

Now, approval of the law has dropped to 31 percent - the lowest number yet recorded in CBS News Polls, and a drop of 12 points since last month. Sixty-one percent disapprove (a high for this poll), including 46 percent who say they disapprove strongly.

The president's overall job approval rating has declined among many demographic groups since last month, including independents (a 12-point drop), men (down 9 points), and women (a 10-point drop). More women now disapprove than approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president................This is the worst part.

More and more Americans are revealing themselves as the racists they truly are.

Oprah told me this would happen.

Disapproval will have to exceed ninety percent before I will believe this country just might be recovering its sanity. There was never any real reason for any real American to approve of this disaster.

MSM really working overtime now to warn the Dems off of Obama and his healthcare fiasco. The fear of another Reaganesque election is palpable in their words.

Odds are the polling was biased and his real approval is in low 30’s or upper 20’s at best.

The marxist propagandists will always protect comrade obamatollah - even in these dire polls.

Remember, this is a CBS poll. That number could be inflated.

Just wait until Jan. 1, when people have NO health insurance or they can’t see their doctors because the new networks have dropped them. Many hospitals will be unavailable because they are not included in this fiasco.

BO’s poll numbers may fall below those of Congress.

Morose Obama asks his base for psychological intervention

3:11 AM 11/19/2013
Neil Munro
White House Correspondent

A downbeat President Barack Obama repeatedly asked his worried supporters Monday night to help resurrect his spirits, following weeks of political disasters and personal humiliations caused by the cascading collapse of Obamacare. The distracted president railed against opponents and at one point appeared to forget the number of people in the Obamacare system during the rambling quarter-hour address.

“My main message is I’m going to need your help, your energy, your faith, your ability to reach out to neighbors, kids and friends [and] co-workers,” he told listeners to the Internet broadcast arranged by his grassroots group, Organizing for Action....

What difference does it make, if he remains in office to do the damage he wants to do.

A net drop of 17% from his 46-49 showing in October.

In time, this is going to start severing the moorings of democrats in erstwhile “safe” Senate and Congressional seats. The heat is being felt.
