IBD/TIPP Poll: President Obama's Approval Dives To Record Low On NSA, IRS - Investors.com
Obama's approval rating is at a record low. The Presidential Leadership Index dropped to 43% from 49% a month ago. "The 11.7% slide was the worst since Obama took office. For the fourth straight month, the reading stood below 50, signaling disapproval." The survey was conducted by TechnoMetrica and took place June 24-29 among 857 adults.
"Each day that passes there's a new mention of these things," TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence President Raghavan Mayur said of the NSA, IRS and other scandals. "They seem to kind of fester. They don't seem to go away."
The recently revealed government surveillance program was not well-received by the public. Fifty-nine percent said the government surveillance invades innocent American's privacy and the split among independents was even more pronounced with 75% saying so. Democrats were not thrilled either, as 42% felt that the surveillance invaded privacy.
Obama did not fare well on the issue of IRS targeting, as 48% believe White House officials ordered the targeting.
Poll: Obama Approval Craters to Record Low
Give it some time. remember it took over a year of the Watergate investigation before Nixon was forced out of office and he only had one scandal going on Obama has --- hell i lost count
I am sort of glad Romney lost. Obama getting kicked out of office will be more damaging to the democrats and the communist liberal policies then it would if Obama lost the reelection. It will take years to recover if ever. remember the train wreck of Obama care will be kicking in soon also.
History has always been nicer to a 1 term president then they are to one getting forced out of office. every one remembers Nixon and the scandal that forced him out of office. not to many could tell you the last 1 term president
