Obama's Numbers Dip Under Stagnant Recovery

An ABC News / Washington Post Poll
released Wednesday reveals the lowest support for the Democratic Party in 30 years and the lowest approval for President Obama since he took office.

Americans are unhappy with many of his positions, contributing to Obama’s approval rating this week falling to 40 percent — the lowest of his career. Although Obama is not on the ballot this November — unfortunately — he has said himself that his policies are.

A vote for a Democrat is a show of continuing support for Obama’s failed presidency.

With weakening support for Obama’s policies across the board, it is hard to point to any one particular area that most highlights the problems under his leadership. However, Obama’s unpopularity seems to stem from the stagnant recovery.

More Americans describe their finances as “not as well off” (30 percent) instead of “better off” (22 percent) since Obama became president, with 77 percent of respondents worried about the country’s economic future. With 37 percent of registered voters naming “the economy and jobs” as the single most important issue in their vote for Congress, the Democrats are in trouble.

Almost four times as many Americans now describe the standard of living in the country as getting worse as opposed to getting better — 57 percent versus 16 percent.

Americans see the country on the wrong track, with Obama supervising the train wreck.

As Democratic candidates seek to distance themselves from Obama’s sinking ship, they must worry about the diminishing support for Democratic policies as well.

Obama now sees career lows in his handling of:
  • Immigration — 29 percent.
  • International Affairs — 37 percent.
  • Terrorism — 42 percent.
  • ISIS situation, dropping 15 percentage points in the last two weeks — 35 percent.
Obama’s unsuccessful agenda will be on the ballot this November.

With Obama and his Democrat policies at their most unpopular, Americans this election have an opportunity to steer our country back in the right direction.

Grover Norquist is president of Americans for Tax Reform, a coalition of taxpayer groups, individuals, and businesses opposed to higher taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. The coalition organizes the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which asks all candidates for federal and state office to commit themselves in writing to oppose all tax increases.
