WSJ/NBC News Poll … Barack Obama’s Approval Rating Hits New Low


Barack Obama hits an all-time low jab approval in the Wallstreet Journal/NBC Poll … THE TOXIC PRESIDENT!

Bad news for Barack Obama and Democrats, in the latest WSJ/NBC poll, Barack Obama’s job approval numbers have cratered to an all-time low with 41% approval and 54% disapprove. With just 8 months before he midterm elections, Obama’s approval keeps falling and after last nights bell-weather special election victory for the GOP in Florida 13, Democrats are reeling. NBC News reports, GOP May Reap Rewards of Obama’s Unpopularity in Midterms.

Mr. Obama’s job approval ticked down to 41% in March from 43% in January, marking a new low. Some 54% disapproved of the job he is doing, matching a previous high from December, when the botched rollout of his signature health law played prominently in the news.

Unease over the economy continues to drive these concerns. Sixty-five percent of those polled said the country is on the wrong track, compared with the 26% who said it was on the right one, a wider spread than in the midterm-election years of 2006 and 2010. Roughly one-quarter of the respondents think the economy will improve over the next year, while 57% believe the U.S. is still in a recession, despite years of modest economic growth and robust stock-market gains.


  • Obama’s job-approval rating has dropped to a low point of 41 percent, never a good position for the party controlling the White House;
  • By a 33 percent to 24 percent margin, Americans say their vote will be to signal opposition to the president rather than to signal support, though 41 percent say their vote will have nothing to do about Obama;
  • Forty-eight percent of voters say they’re less likely to vote for a candidate who’s a solid supporter of the Obama administration, versus 26 percent who say they’re more likely to vote for that candidate;
  • And Republicans hold a one-point edge over Democrats on which party registered voters prefer to control Congress, 44 percent to 43 percent. While that’s within the poll’s margin of error, Republicans have traditionally fared well in elections when they’ve held a slight lead on this question.

5 Takeaways From the WSJ/NBC Poll.

1. Barack Obama keeps sinking. He received his lowest marks ever, winning approval from only 41%. George W. Bush won approval from 37% at the same point in his presidency. Mr. Obama also earned personal record-setting disapproval from Democrats (20%) and tied his strongest disapproval from independents (62%). Memo to Democrats on the ballot in 2014: an endorsement from the White House likely hurts more than helps. (read the rest).

      I’m in Fl. district 13

      Jolly, could’ve been an ax murder and I think he would have won. Realistically that would be only 1 or 2 dead compared to Obamacare’s potential.

      My 62 yr old handy man in deperation signed up for Obamacare a month or two ago, although I’m not sure which plan. I had warned him it would be ugly, but I assume he thought I was “ill Informed”

      Two to three weeeks ago he told me his (single person) preminums were about $550 a month with a $5,000 deductible, and he was restricted to filling his prescriptions at CVS. Didn’t mention an insurance subsidy.

      He went to fill his SINGLE perscription for kidney stones, a common problem, it was not covered leaving him with another $70 out of pocket expense

      Remember, this is a 62 year old handyman.
