    Poll: President Obama's approval underwater

    So with the President's underwater in the polls in general and on the specifics of Syria, economy and healthcare.  So were is the risk to the GOP on having a showdown on ACA?  Well even with all that the GOP is generally seen as more unfavorable.  So POTUS wins in general and loses on on the hot issues.

    Go figure, I do like Cruz's conviction to his cause but I still think he's an idiot.

     

    Poll: President Obama's approval underwater

     

    By TAL KOPAN | 9/25/13 6:34 AM EDT

    President Barack Obama is viewed more unfavorably than favorably for the first time in his presidency, according to a new poll.

    In a Bloomberg poll released late Tuesday, 49 percent viewed Obama unfavorably compared with 47 percent who viewed him favorably, the first time he has seen a net unfavorability in Bloomberg’s polling during his presidency.

    ·          

    While the Republican Party is still viewed more unfavorably than Obama, 56 percent to 34 percent favorable, more people blame Obama for pursuing the wrong policies than Republicans for stymying the economy, 32 percent to 28 percent. Thirty percent of those surveyed said the recession is too severe for government to help it rebound.

    Obama’s approval is also low in specific policy areas: On Syria, 53 percent disapproved of the way Obama handled the situation, and 51 percent disapproved of the way he has managed the nation’s reputation in the world.

    Only 38 percent approved of Obama’s handling of the economy, and 39 percent approved of his handling of health care, his signature domestic issue.

    In another poll released Tuesday, Gallup found that Obama’s support is also dropping among Democrats. An average of tracking done by Gallup found Obama’s approval among Democrats at 78 percent for the month of September, down from a high of 91 percent in December 2012 and lower than the 80 percent or higher Obama has marked every month since December 2011. It’s only 1 point higher than his all-time low, 77 percent, marked in October 2011.

    The 13-point drop from 91 percent last December outpaces the 9 percent drop in approval among the general public in the same time frame.

    Bloomberg surveyed 1,000 adults from Sept. 20 to 23 for the poll, which has an error margin of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points. Gallup surveyed 3,417 Democrats from Sept. 1 to 22 for its polling, which has a margin of error of plus-minus 2 percentage points.

    If Obama's claims about ObamaCare come true, he will have smooth sailing.
    Otherwise, in the words of Obama's preacher the Rev Wright,

    "the chickens have come home to roost".
