Obama Ratings Fall Over Health Care Problems
by news

Another poll reflects the political damage done to President Obama by the botched health care rollout.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll says 55% of respondents now disapprove of Obama's performance, the worst rating of his presidency; 44% "strongly disapprove" of the way Obama is handling his job.

Obama's approval rating is 42%, tied for his all-time low and a drop of six points over the past month.

As with other surveys, the fall of Obama's numbers can be traced to the start of October, and problems with the health care website and canceled policies.

From the Post:

"Opposition to the new health-care law also hit a record high in the survey, with 57% 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%, with a majority saying they strongly disapprove. Last month, 53% disapproved."
