President Barack Obama's approval numbers have hit a record low, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.

Only 42 percent approve of Obama's job performance, according the poll. That's down 5 points from early October. And 51 percent disapprove of his performance, which is tied for his all-time high disapproval.

And for the first time in the poll's history, Obama's personal approval ratings were lower than his disapproval ratings. The poll showed that 41 percent approve of him on a personal level and 45 percent disapprove.

"Personally and politically, the public's assessment is two thumbs down," Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart told NBC. Hart and Republican pollster Bill McInturff conducted the survey.
The pollsters told NBC that no single issue is responsible for the declines. Rather, a combination of the NSA spying scandal, questions over his "red line" comment on attacking Syria, the government shutdown, and problems with the Obamacare website rollout all played a roll.


In fact, the poll showed the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, also slipping in approval along with the Republican Party and Congress as a whole.

Thirty-seven percent now view the healthcare law as a good idea, with 47 percent opposing it. The previous poll showed 38 percent in favor and 43 against.

The White House and congressional Democrats had been touting the law's growing popularity as critics blasted the troubled rollout.

But in a separate question, 40 percent say they are now less confident about Obamacare after learning more about it. Only 9 percent are more confident. Exactly half said there has been no change in their thinking.

    Some would continue to back Obama if he was caught murdering a homeless man on a surveillance tape

    For the first time the press had to mildly disapprove of their messiah so as to not lose all credibility. But the next day, they will be on their knees waiting in line to kiss his ass.

    I don't think it is the left - it is the moderates and those who have never paid attention to "politics" before who are finally seeing the truth. The left can't face reality.

    A liberal getting wise is an oxymoron, it would imply that they are actually doing some rational thinking and belaying emotional responses.

    I don't think it is that high. I think it is inflated to keep from being shown how badly he really is thought of.

    You may be right. They phrase the poll questions with ambiguities that are designed to soften the opinion of obama . even the right wing polls do.

    By the poll numbers some have finally faced reality they've been hoodwinked. Still there will be those who cling to a utopian ideology that simply refuse to accept the Obama fantasyland is economically unfeasible and destructive.

    The DATA they infer their results from, is undoubtedly a biased sample . . . or his rating would plummet to the regions of Dante's Inner Circle.

    The Left will NEVER abandon Obama. They love his evil.
    However more of America's chronically head-in-the-sand citizens are starting to take notice that Obama is evil, hence the decline.

    Obama's rating may be lower .. but republicans are the lowest ... and that should worry them ... It is so sad that when republicans where in the white house .. because of greed and lack of oversight .. they crashed this country .. and now that they have lost twice .. they still are not willing to work with the DEMS .. but republicans insist on still wanting to pass their failed agenda ... DEMS have ideals for this country to .. and they did win the white house and republicans need to work with DEMS ... instead of continuing to hurt the American people .. they voted the republicans out of the white house ...

    Only a liberal would label being held accountable damage. The postal accountability and enhancement act requires the PRC to submit a report every 5 yrs. to protect retiree's health benefits. The pay -as -you -go wasn't working it's unsustainable. The PAEA made them responsible for unfunded liabilities and not another burden to tax payers.
    Take your head out of the sand obamacare is a disaster of epic proportions. AMR

    It's not as if his Left-flank is abandoning him, but more mainstream Americans are growing suspicious of the President's failed record.
