President Obama and his Congressional allies would be wise to exercise greater caution as they prepare for another round on health care reform following Thursday’s summit in Washington. According to the latest Rasmussen poll, just posted today, Obama’s approval rating has hit a new low: 40 percent of Americans now say he is a “good or excellent leader,” compared to 47 percent one month ago and 56 percent one year ago.
Meanwhile, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi in the House and Harry Reid in the Senate, the Congressional approval rating now stands at 10 percent, according to Rasmussen. Seventy-one percent of Americans indicated that they believe Congress is “doing a poor job” in managing the nation’s affairs at home and abroad. As Scott Rasmussen points out, Americans today are “united in the belief that our political system is broken, that our politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has all the answers.”
So, where again is that “hope and change?”
