PRESIDENT’S POLL NUMBERS HIT RECORD LOW …
U.S. President Barack Obama is experiencing record-low approval ratings as the American economy continues to, um … “recover.”
Or whatever it is we want to call what the economy is doing …
Oh, and that whole “Obamacare” thing isn’t helping, either.
According to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, Obama’s approval rating currently stands at 41 percent – a two-point drop from January. That’s a record low for this particular survey.
Meanwhile 54 percent of the country disapproves of the job Obama is doing – equaling a record high.
Obama is also losing his “likability” factor – or the ability to maintain support among Americans who may disagree with his views or disapprove of his job performance.
“The problem for Obama and Democrats in this poll is that his personal likability no longer keeps his overall numbers afloat,” the website HotAir noted.
Before so-called “Republicans” get too excited, though, the poll found 45 percent of the country had negative feelings about them – compared to only 27 percent who had a positive impression. Thirty-eight percent of those surveyed had a negative view of the Democratic party – compared to 35 percent who viewed Democrats in a positive light.
Talk about fertile ground for third party – or at the very least independent candidates not beholden to either establishment’s failed dogma.
The Wall Street Journal/ NBC poll was conducted from March 5-9. A thousand adults were surveyed, and its margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percent.
