It took America long enough, but it seems the country is finally figuring out its head honcho isn’t everything he was cracked up to be …
The bad news? The country is stuck with Barack Obama for the next three-and-a-half years. The worse news? If the last two elections are any indication, “Republicans” aren’t offering much in the way of a contrast to his big spending, crony capitalist, welfare statist, global interventionist policies.
Anyway … according to the results of the latest Washington Post/ ABC News poll, Obama’s approval rating has plunged to 42 percent (compared to 55 percent who disapprove of his performance). Meanwhile only 41 percent approve of his handling of the economy (compared to 57 percent who disapprove) and only 33 percent approve of his handling of the implementation of Obamacare (compared to 63 percent who disapprove).
Wait … one-third of America actually thinks Obama has done a good job rolling out its socialized medicine law?
Wow. This country really is screwed …
As for Obamacare itself, 57 percent now oppose it compared to 40 percent who support it. Meanwhile 65 percent oppose Obamacare’s individual mandate tax, compared to 34 percent who support it.
Those are terrible numbers, particularly when you consider the sample for the Post/ABC poll consisted of 31 percent Democrats and only 24 percent Republicans.
