"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Washington Post-ABC News Poll: Democrats at Risk, Obama Ratings Drops

"According to this poll, it appears that a whole bunch of folks want to be audited this year."

Yeah, I know. A real shocker.

From The Washington Post  (via Drudge):

Democrats face serious obstacles as they look to the November elections, with President Obama’s approval rating at a new low and a majority of voters saying they prefer a Congress in Republican hands to check the president’s agenda, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll
Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.  
Obama’s low rating could be a significant drag on Democratic candidates this fall — past elections suggest that when approval ratings are as low as Obama’s, the president’s party is almost certain to suffer at the ballot box in November.

I would guess that his approval ratings come from people who believe that they won't be effected all that much by his policies. I can't wait to see Obama's ratings when people who get their insurance through their workplace fall under ObamaCare's regulations. There's a reason that Obama has been illegally delaying the implementation of much of ObamaCare until after the 2014 elections.
