“Poll: Obamacare support, Obama approval sink to new lows”


“President’s approval rating plummets: How Obama will try to rebuild credibility
President Obama’s job approval rating has plunged to the lowest of his presidency, according to a new CBS News poll released Wednesday, and Americans’ approval of the Affordable Care Act has dropped it’s lowest since CBS News started polling on the law.

Thirty-seven percent now approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president, down from 46 percent in October — a nine point drop in just a month. Mr. Obama’s disapproval rating is 57 percent — the highest level for this president in CBS News Polls.

A rocky beginning to the opening of the new health insurance exchanges has also taken its toll on how Americans perceive the Affordable Care Act. Now, approval of the law has dropped to 31 percent – the lowest number yet recorded in CBS News Polls, and a drop of 12 points since last month. Sixty-one percent disapprove (a high for this poll), including 46 percent who say they disapprove strongly.

Republicans are nearly unanimous in their disapproval of the law, and now more than two-thirds of independents agree. Almost six in ten Democrats continue to support the law, but their support has dropped 16 points from last month – from 74 percent in October to 58 percent today. Support has dropped 11 points among independents and five points among Republicans.

More than a month after the health care exchanges opened, just one in 10 Americans think the sign-up for the exchanges has been going well. Instead, more than two-thirds think it’s not going well – including seven in 10 of those who have looked up information on the exchanges themselves.

And just a third of Americans are confident that the federal government’s healthcare website – – will be fixed by the December 1st deadline set by the Obama administration.

Thirty-four percent are at least somewhat confident, while almost two thirds are either not very or not at all confident. Fifty-five percent of Democrats are at least somewhat confident.

Just seven percent of Americans think the Affordable Care Act is working well and should be kept in place as it is. Far more, 48 percent, think there are some good things in the law, but changes are needed to make it work better, and another 43 percent think the law needs to be repealed entirely.

The president’s overall job approval rating has declined among many demographic groups since last month, including independents (a 12-point drop), men (down 9 points), and women (a 10-point drop). More women now disapprove than approve of the job Mr. Obama is doing as president.

When compared to recent two-term presidents, President Obama’s approval rating is similar to that of George W. Bush at this point in his presidency, but lower than the ratings of both Bill Clinton (58 percent) and Ronald Reagan (65 percent). In November 2005, 35 percent of Americans approved of the job President Bush was doing. That number mostly declined over the rest of his term, hitting a low of 20 percent in October 2008.

President Obama has also taken a hit on views of his honesty. During the presidential campaign last fall, 60 percent of voters said Mr. Obama was honest and trustworthy, but just 49 percent of Americans think that today.

Most Democrats (84 percent) say the president is honest and trustworthy, but most Republicans don’t think he is (77 percent). Independents are more divided in their assessments: 43 percent think President Obama is honest and trustworthy, but 53 percent don’t think he is.

The Parties in Congress

Both major parties in Congress are viewed negatively. Just 26 percent of Americans approve of how the Democrats in Congress are doing their job, down five points from last month and the party’s lowest approval measure since January 2012. At the same time, only 21 percent approve of the job congressional Republicans are doing, and 73 percent now disapprove — a slight drop from last month.


This poll was conducted by telephone November 15-18, 2013 among 1,010 adults nationwide. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by Social Science Research Solutions of Media, Pa. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups may be higher. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. This poll release conforms to the Standards of Disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls.”

“The “Obamacare Shock” – One California Employer’s Terrifying True Story”

“My company, based in California, employs 600. We used to insure about 250 of our employees. The rest opted out. The company paid 50% of their premiums for about $750,000/yr.

Under obamacare, none can opt out without penalty, and the rates are double or triple, depending upon the plan. Our 750k for 250 employees is going to $2 million per year for 600 employees.

By mandate, we have to pay 91.5% of the premium or more up from the 50% we used to pay.

Our employees share of the premium goes from $7/week for the cheapest plan to $30/week. 95% of my employees were on that plan. Remember, we used to pay 50% now we pay 91.5% and the premiums still go up that much!!

The cheapest plan now has a deductible of $6350! Before it was $150. Employees making $9 to $10/hr, have to pay $30/wk and have a $6350 deductible!!! What!!!!

They can’t afford that to be sure. Obamacare will kill their propensity to seek medical care. More money for less care? How does that help them?”

    “Guest Post: The 5 Economic “Big Lies” The Government Is Telling You”

    “1. “The Unemployment Rate Has Been Steadily Going Down”

    According to the official government numbers, the U.S. unemployment rate has fallen all the way down to 7.3 percent.

    That sounds really good, and it would seem to imply that a higher percentage of the American people are now working.

    Sadly, that is not the truth at all.”

    “2. “Inflation Is Low”

    This is another lie that government officials love to tell. In particular, the boys and girls over at the Federal Reserve love to try to convince all of us that inflation is super low because it gives them an excuse to recklessly print lots more money.

    But anyone that goes to the grocery store or pays bills on a regular basis knows that there is plenty of inflation in the economy. And if we were being given honest numbers, they would show that.”

    “3. “Quantitative Easing Is Economic Stimulus”

    How many times have you heard the mainstream media tell you something along these lines…

    “The Federal Reserve decided today that the economic stimulus must continue.”
    There is just one thing wrong with that statement.

    As I showed in a previous article, it is a total hoax.”

    “4. “Obamacare Is Going To Be Good For Middle Class Americans”

    There were three giant promises that were used to sell Obamacare to the American people…

    #1 We would all be able to keep our current health insurance plans.

    #2 Millions more Americans were going to be covered by health insurance.

    #3 Most Americans would be paying lower health insurance premiums.

    Well, it turns out that all of them were lies.”

    “5. “The U.S. National Debt Is Under Control”

    The mainstream media would have us believe that the budget deficit is now under control and the U.S. national debt is not a significant problem any longer.

    But that is not the truth.

    The truth is that we are on pace to accumulate more new debt under the 8 years of the Obama administration than we did under all of the other presidents in all of U.S. history combined.”

    “Pat Caddell Says: Media Have Become “Enemy of the American People””

    “In remarks to the AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” on September 21st, former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.

    Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but “It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know.””

    “Politico Magazine writer burns American flag on Twitter”

    “Truth Revolt is reporting that on Wednesday, after Breitbart News reported that Politico magazine writer Ian Murphy had written a piece titled “F*** the Troops,” Murphy proceeded to go berserk on Twitter, posting a .gif of himself setting an American flag ablaze.

    [go to link]

    He then tweeted, “Some of you folks are unfairly questioning my patriotism. So here I am on a very typical Tuesday evening.” This follows hard on Murphy’s tweeting on Tuesday that “Reagan f***s Satan in hell.”

    Remember, Politico describes itself as non-partisan, but this is really the mindset of the average Politico “journalist.””

  8. Politico most definitely not non partisan.

  9. Soetoro’s song……..I…..GOT…A….”TIGER BYTHE TAIL” ,and the MEDIA has another BY THE TAIL. Neither can stop swinging the tiger around,by his tail because he will devour ALL of them if given even half a chance. The looney liberals are swinging a LION around by the tail. When they stop they are DEAD MEAT.

  10. Five million people without healthcare insurance is BAD, but wait until that figure goes to 50,000,000…… HELL ON EARTH,and I will take a very special
    LEWD SATISFACTION in watching the heads of the LIBERALS disappear ONE AT A TIME, in the ocean of feces into which they have all jumped because their ship is sinking faster and faster. har har.

  11. bye bye Have a great day everybody!.

  13. NOAA announced today that there is a one third chance this winter will be “either colder, warmer or more normal than average”. Yep! I heard it on the local news. Must be true.

  14. That was not a joke. I actually heard it.

  15. Sen. Carl Levin (D) said “changing the rules by fiat” means that “there are no rules” in the Senate any longer.

    Obama was very excited and happy when he received the news.

  16. “Some cyber security experts recommend shutting Obamacare site”

    “President Barack Obama’s site is riddled with security flaws that put user data of millions of people at risk and it should be shut down until fixed, several technology experts warned lawmakers on Tuesday.

    The testimony at a congressional hearing could increase concerns among many Americans about Obama’s healthcare overhaul, popularly known as Obamacare. Opinion polls show the botched rollout of the online marketplace for health insurance policies has hurt the popularity of the effort.”

    “The experts said the site needed to be completely rebuilt to run more efficiently, making it easier to protect. They said runs on 500 million lines of code, or 25 times the size of Facebook, one of the world’s busiest sites.

    “When your code base is that large it’s going to be indefensible,” Morgan Wright, CEO of a firm known as Crowd Sourced Investigations, said in an interview after testifying at the hearing.

    “Do you want to defend the Great Wall of China or a very small line?”

    David Kennedy, head of computer security consulting firm TrustedSec LLC and a former U.S. Marine Corps cyber-intelligence analyst, gave lawmakers a 17-page report that highlights the problems with the site and warned that some of them remain live.

    The site lets people know invalid user names when logging in, allowing hackers to identify user IDs, according to the report, which also warns of other security bugs.”

    “Blackout: NBC Censors All Coverage of ObamaCare for Days”

    “NBC News has completely censored any mention of the unfolding ObamaCare disaster for the last 72 hours. Not one word about the millions of Americans losing their health insurance nor the severe political damage that has been done to President Obama and the Democratic Party.

    In that same time period, both CBS and ABC reported on major developments regarding the new law, including revelations that much of ObamaCare’s infrastructure was still unfinished and that the administration knew of serious problems with the website as early as March.”

    Host Al Sharpton set up the segment by recounting birther conspiracy theories against the President before moving to a completely unrelated clip of Senator Cruz, and then brought aboard wolffe for comment. …”

    “Ted Cruz: Obama’s Impeachment for Healthcare Debacle ‘Question for House'”

    “Cruz said the introduction of Obamacare is another example of how President Obama defies the U.S. Constitution when enforcing the law, Cruz said.

    “It’s one of the most troubling aspects of the Obama administration: Aside from their radical policy, the way they’ve implemented it has, sadly, been lawless. Over and over again, this president has said, ‘I don’t care what the law is; I’m going to refuse to enforce it.'”

    While he believes these executive actions are unconstitutional, Cruz stopped short of calling for Obama’s impeachment.

    “That’s a question for the House, ultimately. The House, under the Constitution, makes the decision whether to impeach, and then the Senate is charged with trying it.”

    Burr: Exercise of ‘Nuclear Option’ Threatens Bipartisanship and Paves Way for More Laws Like Obamacare

    Thursday, November 21, 2013
    Robert Reid
    (202) 228-1616

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) made the following statement in reaction to Majority Leader Harry Reid’s move to invoke the ‘nuclear option’ to make major changes to the longstanding rules of the Senate:
    “The American people know what they get when the Senate removes the 60-vote threshold and the minority is stripped of its rights: they get unchecked power by the Executive Branch. The President and Harry Reid might not like the American people playing a role in outcomes through the minority, but it has worked well for over 200 years. This change is a blatant attempt to change the debate about the Democrats’ health care plan as the consequences of this disastrous law are felt around the country, but it has ramifications far beyond the debate surrounding Obamacare.

    Rather than advance legislation and nominate judges that are capable of receiving bipartisan support in the United States Senate, the President and the Democrat majority want their legislation, their way—and they want to change the Senate rules to pack the courts with judges who agree with them. Make no mistake; these actions pave the way for more laws like Obamacare and will do lasting damage to bipartisanship, the Senate, and the nation.”

    In The Price of Politics Bob Woodward writes about a CEO who says at the Obama White House “we talk to people we wouldn’t hire.”
    Andrew Stiles reported at National Review:

    Larry Summers, former head of the National Economic Council, thought having Jarrett represent the White House was a mistake. Business leaders “felt patronized and offended by Valerie,” Summers told Woodward, largely due to her tendency to insist that she spoke for the president, and an approach to problem-solving that involved little more than scheduling multiple lunch meetings. One CEO complained to Alter that “when we go to the White House, we talk to people we wouldn’t hire.” Alter himself has likened Jarrett’s role in the White House to “the CEO putting his sister in charge of marketing.”

  25. Ben Carson: Obamacare a ‘Redistribution Program’

    Obamacare is a “redistribution program” that’s “not what America is about,” said former neurosurgeon and Fox News contributor Dr. Ben Carson.

    “It is a redistribution program. There is no question about that,” Carson told “Fox and Friends” on the Fox News Channel Thursday. “Of course, that’s not what America is about. America is about free enterprise.”

    The spirit of entrepreneurship has been a driving force in America, Carson maintained, that has enabled the U.S. to have “the biggest impact of any country ever in the history of the world.”

    “Because we created an atmosphere of entrepreneurship, hard work, innovation . . . now we’re in the process of trying to be like everybody else, and destroying that,” he said.

    The emphasis in healthcare should return to a relationship between patients and their healthcare provider, Carson suggested. He said free enterprise, and not the government, should be involved in health concerns of individuals.

    “Get the government out of it. There’s plenty of things for the government to do. And, if we put them back where they’re supposed to be, and let us, the people, and the free market deal with things, we can once again be the pinnacle of the world. We can be the example,” Carson said.

    “Official Analyses of Obama’s Alleged Frauds Delivered to Members of Congress”

    “Washington DC) In a coordinated effort to bring Barack Obama’s forged identity documentation into the light of scrutiny, fifteen unpaid volunteers from California, Oklahoma, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Virginia walked the halls of Congress this week delivering “Sheriff’s Kits” directly to Congresspersons, Senators and staff alike.

    Additionally, approximately half of the 200 or so “Reclaim America Now” rally-goers, assembled at nearby Lafayette Park on Tuesday, received kits as well.

    Each Sheriff’s Kit consists of concise, letter-sized packet the size of an instruction booklet. The bulk of the kit is the May 15, 2013 sworn affidavit of Detective Michael Zullo of the Maricopa County, Arizona Cold Case Posse. Zullo’s work over the past two years is a reflection not only of his efforts, but also of his core team of six investigators as well as resources gathered from hundreds of concerned citizens in both the public and the private sector.”

    B. Christopher Agee:

    “Dem Rep Victim Of ‘Knockout’ Game?”

    “Though largely ignored by the mainstream media, a disturbing trend known as the “knockout game” has been spreading throughout the nation. Black aggressors have been increasingly targeting whites and other non-blacks for vicious beatings that have resulted in multiple fatalities so far.

    When a Democrat congresswoman from New York was punched in the back of the head Tuesday in Washington, D.C., many initially thought she might have been a victim of the ruthless act.

    The so-called game has been more prevalent within urban communities with strict gun ownership laws, such as D.C.

    Rep. Grace Meng could not identify her attackers, though her description of the event bears a striking similarity to many of the previously reported cases of such criminal behavior.

    After being “hit from behind” and landing on the ground, she said “there is a period of time where I don’t really remember what happened.”

    Her attack came just days after two other D.C. women were hit in the back of the head in a very similar manner. Police say they are currently investigating the incident.”
