WaPo/ABC poll shows Obama approval tumbling, competence suspect

- in Public Opinion Polls

When I left on vacation two weeks ago, Barack Obama’s poll numbers had started turning sour.  On my first day back, Obama’s plunge has caught up with the Washington Post/ABC poll, where a majority of voters disapprove of his overall performance for the first time in over a year, and a new low approve at 42/55. The poll also shows the highest level ever of opposition to ObamaCare:

The flawed rollout of the Affordable Care Act has pushed President Obama to the lowest point of his presidency, with dwindling faith in his competence and in many of the personal attributes that have buoyed him in the past, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Opposition to the new health-care law also hit a record high in the survey, with 57 percent saying they oppose the president’s most significant domestic initiative. Forty-six percent say they are strongly against it. Just a month ago, as the enrollment period was beginning, the public was almost evenly divided in its assessments of the law.

Disapproval of Obama’s handling of the health-care law’s rollout stands at 63 percent, with a majority saying they strongly disapprove. Last month, 53 percent disapproved.
