AP poll: Obama at 37% approval

Readers have to get halfway into the Associated Press report on its new AP-GFK poll to find this out, but Barack Obama’s job approval numbers have cratered in the shutdown. His overall job approval is now 37/53, and a majority want Obama to start cooperating more with Republicans, as 63% want Republicans to meet Obama part-way, too:

This is a blatant, in yer face, failed Presidency. This man was never qualified to hold the office. But he's blameless for all the travail...blame the voter.
Thanks from webguy4 and kbear

Context is Relevant TV. This new Gallup poll shows that the President and Democrats still live in the better houses in a bad neighborhood.

Quote:
. Republicans hit all-time low in Gallup poll. Is shutdown to blame?

The Republican Party is viewed favorably by only 28 percent of the American public, a 10-percentage-point drop in just the past month, according to the latest Gallup poll.

It's the lowest favorability number ever recorded for either party by Gallup, which began asking the question in 1992. Democrats’ favorability also dropped in the last month, down four percentage points from 47 percent to 43 percent.

The poll was conducted from Oct. 3 to Oct. 6, in the early days of the ongoing government shutdown.

The shutdown is the result of a GOP impasse with President Obama and the Democrats over government funding in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1. Republicans are demanding that the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, be defunded as a condition for new federal government funding.

Also looming is the so-called debt ceiling – the limit on federal borrowing authority, which the Treasury says will be reached on Oct. 17. If Congress doesn’t approve more borrowing, the government could default on its debts.

“The Republican Party is clearly taking a bigger political hit from Americans thus far in the unfolding saga,” writes Andrew Dugan of Gallup, who notes that a month ago, the GOP had made up ground on key issues. “Thus, the Republican Party’s current strategy in the fiscal debates may not be paying dividends.”

In mid-September, Gallup found that the Democrats had lost their edge in public opinion over which party would manage the economy better in the next few years. It’s not that the Republicans had gained in approval; the Democrats declined, putting the two parties at rough parity. Democrats also lost ground on national security, declining to 39 percent. Republicans held steady at 45 percent approval.

In its latest poll, Gallup also notes that both parties are down in public opinion from where they were after the 2012 elections. The political battles of 2013 have had a “corrosive effect on the two parties' images,” Mr. Dugan says.

Democrats are surely happy to be the party that has lost less ground during the budget impasse and government shutdown. But perhaps the best news of the day for the Democrats is the announcement that Rep. Bill Young (R) of Florida is retiring after 22 terms in the House. He represents a moderate district in St. Petersburg, Fla. – President Obama won it with slim majorities in both 2008 and 2012 – and Congressman Young’s departure puts the seat in play.

After Young’s announcement, the nonpartisan Cook Political Report moved the district, Florida-13, into the tossup column. Democrats still face a steep climb to retake the House, given that most seats are safe for one or the other party, but with only a 17-seat margin, every shift to tossup matters.

This is not about Republicans..

This is about the Obama's approval rating (Which is 10 points worse) than GW Bush's at the same point in his presidency.

Bush had a 47 Approval Rating in Oct of his 1st year of his 2nd term.

37%.. You do know Congressional Elections follow the POTUS approval more so than it does Generic polling..

This is about Democrats

You see, there is a term, Over playing your hand.

LOOK AT THE RECENT POLLS.. Democrats did that

because Obama and Reid have opened their mouths.

Reid said he did not care if childern with Cancer died.. (that first wake up call) a few hit the snooze button.

yesterday the President said BORROWING MORE MONEY WILL NOT ADD TO THE DEBT..

heck anyone in all 57 states knows better.

People are not happy with REpublicans,

Thanks to Tweedle dumb and Tweedle Dumber... They now don't like Democrats either.

I think so too.

You see I don't leave GOP blameless, Unlike those that dont' understand the Senate is one house of congress, I also blame democrats.

(I think the most blame should go to Harry Reid, because he refused to appoint a conference commitee for the appropriations bill, which is S.O.P. when there are conflicting bills).
