Quinnipiac Poll: Obama’s Approval Drops To Lowest Point Evah

Let’s get into the delicious details:

A year after President Barack Obama’s political honeymoon ended, his job approval rating has dropped to a negative 44 – 48 percent, his worst net score ever, and American voters say by a narrow 39 – 36 percent margin that they would vote for an unnamed Republican rather than President Obama in 2012, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Anti-incumbent sentiment slams both parties as voters disapprove 59 – 31 percent of the job Democrats are doing, and disapprove 59 – 29 percent of Republicans in Congress. But voters say 43 – 38 percent they would vote for a Republican in a generic Congressional race.

This compares to a 48 – 43 percent approval for Obama in a May 26 national poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and a 57 – 33 percent approval last July, just before the political firestorm created by opposition to his health care plan galvanized political opponents and turned independent voters against him.

In this latest survey of more than 2,000 voters, independent voters disapprove of Obama 52 – 38 percent and say 37 – 27 percent they would vote for a Republican contender in 2012.

 

American voters also say 48 – 40 percent Obama does not deserve reelection in 2012.

It’s all Bush’s fault.

  1. ‘Anti-incumbent’ is just another MSM buzzword for ‘Democrat’ that they hope a public they already duped back in 2008 won’t notice. Since it’s the Dems that have the near-unstoppable supermajority, they would by extension have more incumbents in place.

    Not quite the case with the GOP. I know of one Congressman out in California who’s district is considered so ‘safe’ that back in May he was telling would-be donors to give to the candidates running in the special elections out in Hawaii and Pennsylvania instead.
