According to a New NBC/WSJ poll, President Obama’s approval rating has plummeted to the lowest level of his Presidency.
While the frustrating Heathcare.gov website failures are one component of Obama’s approval drop, pollsters state multiple other issues that have contributed to his recent drop in approval. Pollsters point to NSA Spying, Syria, Benghazi and the government shutdown as other reasons for the Presidents recent drop in approval.
President Obama is not the only one who is reaching all time lows. Congressional Republicans approval is now at twenty-two percent (22%.) Congressional Democrats are unpopular as well at thirty-seven percent (37%.)
Only twenty-two percent (22%) of the respondents to the poll said the country was headed in the right direction.
These statistics present an overall negative view of government leadership across the board.
