Americans are stating to blame everyone for the government shut down, however, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating just fell below 40%.
OUCH!!! According to the most recent Associated Press-GfK survey, President Barack Obama has a 37% job approval rating. The poll talks about the government shut down and who is to blame, but the eye popping data from this survey is that Obama’s approval numbers are now in the 30′s. However, as more and more Americans are seeing the arbitrary and heinous acts of the shut down, like closing the WWII Memorial to elderly vets in wheel chairs and stopping death benefits to our fallen soldiers … more and more people, including the MSM are starting to blame all, Democrats, Republicans and Obama for the shut down.
Asked if she blamed Obama, House Republicans, Senate Democrats or the tea party for the shutdown, Martha Blair, 71, of Kerrville, Texas, said, yes, you bet. All of them.
“Somebody needs to jerk those guys together to get a solution, instead of just saying ‘no,’” said Blair, an independent. “It’s just so frustrating.” It’s also costly: She’s paid to fly with a group to four national parks in Arizona and California next month and says she can’t get her money back or reschedule if the parks remain closed.
The poll found that the tea party is more than a gang of malcontents in the political landscape, as its supporters in Congress have been portrayed by Democrats. Rather, it’s a sizable — and divisive — force among Republicans. More than 4 in 10 Republicans identified with the tea party and were more apt than other Republicans to insist that their leaders hold firm in the standoff over reopening government and avoiding a default of the nation’s debt in coming weeks.
Most Americans disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, the poll suggests, with 53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it. Congress is scraping rock bottom, with a ghastly approval rating of 5 percent.
