President Obama’s approval rating has sunk to a new low yet again.
A new Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday shows that Obama’s approval rating is only 38%. That’s down one percent from a poll released last month.
The new low comes as women and young people, who once vehemently supported Obama, turn their backs on the president. Only 44% of women and 41% of young people (aged 18-29) now say they support Obama.
The Quinnipiac poll also revealed that the public has lost trust in Obama. His approval rating on trustworthiness is 44-52 — this is bad news for the president, as it means the majority of the country does not trust him. This likely has a lot to do with the lie he was caught in during the Obamacare debacle (“If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period.”)
The only positive news for Obama from the Quinnipiac poll is that his approval rating has actually increased among Hispanics, 50% of whom say they support him. That figure is up nearly 10% from last month.
Obama’s presidency is finally unraveling and he has no one to blame but himself.
Washington Times opinion writer George F. Will said, “After Obama’s semi-demi-apology for millions of canceled insurance policies — an intended and predictable consequence of his crusade to liberate Americans from their childish choices of “substandard” policies sold by “bad apple” insurers — Obama is like someone who burns down your house. Then shows up with an empty water bucket. Then lectures you about how defective the house was.”
Perhaps Obama’s collapsing presidency will result in big wins for Republicans in 2014. Only time will tell.
