Obama Approval Sinks to Record-Low 37% as Obamacare Scandal Continues

President Barack Obama’s approval rating has crashed to the lowest level of his presidency as the scandal over Obamacare and millions of Americans losing their health care insurance plans continues. A record 57 percent of Americans disapprove of the job he’s doing.

According to a CBS News poll released Wednesday, 37 percent say they approve of how Obama is doing his job and his approval dropped nine points, from 46 percent in October. Meanwhile, just 49 percent believe Obama is honest and trustworthy — down from 60 percent during his re-election campaign.

The public’s approval of abortion-funding Obamacare has also dropped to its lowest level, according to the CBS survey. Thirty-one percent approve of the law — a drop of 12 points from the 43 percent who supported it last month. Just one-third of Americans say they are confident the Obama administration can fix the Obamacare web site by December 1.

Americans disapprove of Obamacare on a 61-31 percent margin and 46 percent say they “disapprove strongly” of the law. Eighty-eight percent of Republicans disapprove of the law — little changed from last month’s 87 percent figure. But approval among independents fell from 38 percent to 27 percent, and approval of Democrats dropped from 74 percent to 58 percent.

The CBS News poll of 1,010 adults was conducted from Nov. 15-18 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
