The numbers are in and after a week of Benghazi, IRS, and AP/DOJ hysteria, the American people are not turning on President Obama–in fact, his numbers are actually improving.
A new CNN poll shows that President Obama’s approval rating is at 53%, up two points from the previous poll. Clearly, the American people are not buying into the false narrative promulgated by the media and the Republican Party, as a majority of respondents believe that the president and his statements on the “scandals” are “mostly true.” The GOP was not so lucky.
The poll found that 59 percent of respondents view the GOP unfavorably, a record that has only shown up one other time in the poll’s results since tracking began in 1992.
The Republican Party’s net favorability ratings are down 8 points in the past two months. The amount of respondents viewing the GOP favorably fell from 38 percent to 35 percent, while the number of people who view the party unfavorably climbed five points, up from 54 percent in March.
It’s hard to say which is more pathetic, the Republican’s manufactured scandals or the fact that they are backfiring on them. Either way, it’s obvious that the Republican Party is more worried about obstructing President Obama and the Democratic Party than they are about responsibly governing or looking out for the best interests of their constituents.
Let’s hope the GOP keeps it so that the American voters enthusiastically give them the boot in 2014!
