Wonder what you would find if you frisked the latest CBS News poll?
Answer: President Obama’s approval rating hits a new low!
So much for Obama-Care helping out his approval ratings…
Last week, President Obama signed historic health care reform legislation into law — but his legislative success doesn’t seem to have helped his image with the American public.
The latest CBS News Poll, conducted between March 29 and April 1, found Americans unhappier than ever with Mr. Obama’s handling of health care – and still worried about the state of the economy.
President Obama’s overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 percent, down five points from late March, just before the health bill’s passage in the House of Representatives. It’s down 24 points since his all-time high last April. Forty-one percent of those polled said they disapproved of the president’s performance.
Perhaps President Obama should stop trying to sell Obama-Care to the American public (after it has already been passed). After all, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it is not working out well for him.
As for the Republicans… REPEAL and REPLACE this monstrosity disguised as “health-care reform.” Click the image below to join the fight:
In other polling news, Rasmussen reports:
On major issues, 48% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is closer to their views than President Barack Obama. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 44% hold the opposite view and believe the president’s views are closer to their own.
Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly feel closer to the Tea Party and most Democrats say that their views are more like Obama’s. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, 50% say they’re closer to the Tea Party while 38% side with the President.
Can anyone say “political chaos”? I feel a storm brewing, and I am guessing that it will hit with full force in November. Mu-haha.
