President Obama’s approval rating on health care has sunk to its lowest level ever, with just 41 percent saying they approve of his job on the issue, as people begin to find out what’s in the bill, according to the Associated Press.
With reports proliferating about the difficulties in implementing Obamacare – while insurance rates rise and people find they may have to switch coverage – Americans are deciding they like the president’s approach less and less. The poll suggests there is still political pay dirt for Republicans should they decide to make repealing Obamacare a centerpiece of their agenda.
The poll also puts Obama’s overall approval rating at 50 percent, the lowest of his second term in AP’s surveys.
And it finds his handling of the economy is back in negative territory, with just 46 percent approving compared to 52 percent who do not. “In last September’s run-up to the election, 49 percent said they approved, and 48 percent disapproved,” the AP reported.
