Poll: Obama Approval Ratings Drop, Americans Say He’s Not Trustworthy

 

 

Washington (CNN) –  ” President Barack Obama’s approval rating among American voters has dropped to its lowest number in Quinnipiac University polling since he became President, according to a survey released on Tuesday that also raised new doubts about trust.

As Obama juggles the bungled rollout of HealthCare.gov and questions over his initial promises about health care reform become magnified, only 39% of voters approve how he is handling his job, while 54% disapprovethe new data from the school’s Polling Institute shows.

According to the poll, a majority of voters, 52%, say the President is not honest and trustworthy, compared to 44% who say the opposite. It’s the first time in Quinnipiac history that the president’s trustworthy numbers are underwater.”

 

    The Kool-aid is finally wearing off and the public , despite the media handmaiden’s best efforts , has begun to see the nakedness of the emperor.

 

” While the President has a positive rating, 52%-42%, for how he handles terrorism, he gets negative ratings on foreign policy, immigration, the federal budget, and the economy. A majority of voters, 53%, say the Obama administration has not been competent in managing the U.S. government, according to Quinnipiac.”

 

    The real question is , if such a large percentage of the population disapproves of the way Obama has handled the economy , foreign policy , spending , healthcare , immigration and just about every other major policy issue and find him untrustworthy to boot , why does he still have a positive rating ? Anyone ? We have a theory . What’s yours ?
