Obama's low approval ratings could cost Dems in midterm elections, poll shows

President Obama's low job-approval rating could cost the Democratic Party in November's midterm elections, NBC News and the Wall Street Journal noted on Wednesday citing a new poll conducted jointly by the two news media outlets that shows 54% of Americans disapprove of the President's job performance while only 41% approve of his job performance, his worst job approval rating in the survey’s history.

Of equal significance, or perhaps greater significance, to the midterm elections, the poll shows that 42% of Americans are less likely to vote for a candidate who is endorsed by President Obama, while only 22% are more likely to vote for a candidate who is endorsed by Obama. Additionally, 48% of Americans say they are less likely to vote for a candidate who is a solid supporter of the Obama administration, while only 26% say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who is a solid supporter of the Obama administration.

33% of Americans say their "vote for Congress this November" will "be a vote to send a signal of opposition to President Obama", while 24% say their vote "will be a vote to send a signal of support for President Obama." 41 percent say their vote will not be "a signal either way about Obama."

56% of Americans "disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing in handling the economy", while only 41% approve.

53% of Americans "disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing in handling foreign policy", while only 41% approve.

42% of Americans strongly believe the new health care law [Obamacare] was a bad idea, while only 26% strongly believe it was a good idea.

Leaving out the word "strongly", 49% of Americans believe the new health care law was a bad idea, while only only 35% believe it was a good idea.

47% of Americans say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports repealing the health care reform law, while only 32% say they are less likely to vote for a candidate who supports the repeal of Obamacare.

57% of Americans think the United States is currently in an economic recession, while only 41% think the US is currently not in an economic recession.

30% of Americans have very negative feelings toward Obama, 21% of Americans have very positive feelings toward him.

67% of Americans are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports cutting federal spending, 14% are less lkely to vote for such a candidate.

44% of Americans prefer a Congress controlled by Republicans, 43% prefer a Congress controlled by Democrats.

42% of Americans say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who "places a major emphasis on more conservative social and religious values", while only 29% say they are less likely to vote for such a candidate.

41% of Americans say they are less likely to vote for a candidate who supports legalizing the purchase of small quantities of marijuana by adults for their personal use, 31% are more likely to vote for such a candidate.

72% of Americans think of Russia as more of an adversary than an ally, 19% of Americans think of Russia as more of an ally.

It is worthy to note that, although the poll shows significant opposition to the policies, ideals and ideologies of President Obama and his Democratic minions, 43% of the poll respondents said that they think of themselves as Democrats - whether that entails being a strong Democrat, a not very strong Democrat, or an Independent/lean Democrat - while 37% of the respondents said they think of themselves as Republicans, whether that entails being a strong Republican, a not very strong Republican, or an Independent/lean Republican. That's a 6% differential. The remaining 20% of the poll respondents considered themselves either strictly independents, none of the above, or they weren't sure what they were.

Which means that the poll respondents, of whom a majority were Democrats, expressed significant opposition to President Obama's extreme left-wing agenda.
