Obama dis­ap­proval rat­ing hits new high in Fox sur­vey

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics - From wire dis­patches and staff re­ports

Pres­i­dent Obama’s dis­ap­proval rat­ing has hit an all-time high in the sec­ond sur­vey this week that shows pub­lic con­fi­dence in Mr. Obama rapidly erod­ing.

Forty per­cent of reg­is­tered vot­ers ap­prove of Mr. Obama’s job per­for­mance, com­pared with 55 per­cent who dis­ap­prove, ac­cord­ing to a Fox News poll — slightly worse than a 40 per­cent/54 per­cent ap­proval/dis­ap­proval split the pres­i­dent had in Septem­ber.

In the poll, 55 per­cent say the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion has tried to de­ceive the peo­ple on the health care over­haul, and 50 per­cent say he “know­ingly lied” when he promised that peo­ple could keep the health insurance plans they liked.
