SUPPORT FOR FOR RABID OBAMACARE ADVOCATE JIM HIMES IS RAPIDLY IMPLODING
It took Connecticut long enough, but it seems that forth district congressional voters are finally figuring out the Goldman Sachs Banker from Greenwich isn’t everything he was cracked up to be
The bad news? The country is stuck with Barack Obama for the next three-and-a-half years.
The good news? Thant in Connecticut's forth congressional district Dan Debecella is offering a contrast to his big spending, crony capitalist, welfare statist, global interventionist policies that has brought astagnet recovery to the state.
Anyway … according to the results of the latest Washington Post ABC News poll. Obama’s approval rating has plunged to 42 percent (compared to 55 percent who disapprove of his performance). Meanwhile only 41 percent approve of his handling of the economy (compared to 57 percent who disapprove) and only 33 percent approve of his handling of the implementation of Obamacare (compared to 63 percent who disapprove).
Wait … about one-third of America actually agrees with the perpetually wrong Jim Himes and thanks Obama has done a good job rolling out the failed Obamacare?
As for Jim Himes' Obamacare itself, 57 percent now oppose it compared to 40 percent who support it. Meanwhile 65 percent oppose the individual mandate tax that Jim Himes fought so hard for, compared to 34 percent who support it.
Those are terrible numbers, particularly when you consider the sample for the Post/ABC poll consisted of 31 percent Democrats and only 24 percent Republicans.
The was no comment offered from Jim Himes congressional office concerning the rapidly crumbling support for him and his beloved Obamacare.
An ABC News / Washington Post poll shows votes would chose Republican candidate Mitt Romney over President Obama, 49-45 percent, if they could have a do over.
And most of Connecticut's district 4 voters now wish that they could also have a mulligan on Jim Himes and the 2010 election.
Obama reached a new low in the ABC poll, with a 42 percent approval rating and 55 percent disapproval, and 57 percent of Americans oppose Obamacare, which host George Stephanopoulos called “brutal numbers for the White House.” Only 46 percent see Obama as a strong leader, and just 47 percent view him as trustworthy.
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Our new ABC News/ Washington Post poll, which shows President Obama with the lowest support of his presidency. Those troubles with Obamacare hitting hard across the board. Seven out of ten Americans now think the country’s on the wrong track, and this comes amid new revelations that the administration was warned about the problems in the website as early as March. ABC’s Jon Karl is at the White House, and Jon, these are brutal numbers for the White House.
JONATHAN KARL: They sure are, George. The lowest job approval rating we have ever seen in the ABC News / Washington Post poll. Only 42 percent approving of the president’s job performance, 55 percent disapproving, and on the health care law, a record-high 57 percent say they oppose the law. Only 40 percent supporting it. George, look at this number. We asked voters if they could have a mulligan on the 2012 presidential election, who would they vote for. A plurality now say they would vote for Romney over Obama. But of course, that is one thing that President Obama does not have to worry about.
STEPHANOPOULOS: What a difference a year makes. Real signs that there were some red flashing lights back in March about the rollout of the website.
KARL: That’s right. It turns out we learned from the congressional committees investigating this that they asked a consulting firm to look at whether or not they would be ready, the McKinsey consulting firm. They found in a March report that was presented to White House officials in April that there were real problems. They thought the website would not be ready. Their biggest concern, George, was there was not enough time to do end-to-end testing, and of course we know that was exactly the case.
